My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It was good story and I liked the characters. It was worth my time reading this book. I would recommend this to a friend. Only issue I have is at times there was a little too much going on. This would be a good rainy day read

Review: Blair's Destiny

Blair's Destiny Blair's Destiny by Miranda Lynn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Audio review

"Great series "
Would you listen to Blair's Destiny again? Why?
Yes I would as I really love the characters and the series

Who was your favorite character and why?
Jamie. I just loved how much she grown into this timeframe she had been dropped into

Have you listened to any of Lesley Parkin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, It was wonderful as she also narratored book one and I loved hearing the same voices I fell in love with in book one

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
yes when Jamie and Jack were searching for Blair to help her overcome the darkness

Any additional comments?
This is part of a series so we are left hanging in the end. It wasn't a horrible way to end it but it does leave us wanting more of the story. I love these characters so I can't wait to read/listen to more of them.
Well worth a credit

Review: Lyric's Accidental Mate

Lyric's Accidental Mate Lyric's Accidental Mate by Elle Boon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

While this was the first I've read by this author I could tell by how much I enjoyed this book it won't be the last. I love when a shifter book isn't the same as so many and this had just a different feel that appealed to me. Great charaters that held my history and the story itself keep me reading

It ranks up high as I really enjoyed the story

What did you like best about this story?
How it was a different from many other vampire books I've read

A Tale of Two Witches; Robyn Peterman

AVAILABLE NOW! Three waxed cats, one Cookie Witch, a brazilian gone bad and the last name, Bermangoggleshitz… not the best ingredients for a successful spell. Or is it? Avoiding the truth has been working out just fine for most of my life. I’m finally happy. I have friends and a kangaroo shifter who adores me. Never in my twenty-nine witchy years did I think I would have a place to call home with people who truly cared. Now my BFF, Zelda, wants to have a chat. Can’t crappy news wait? As soon as my varnished Virginia is mobile, I want to go home to my adorable little house I share with with the love of my life and my four semi-violent, adopted, gum-smacking chipmunk shifter sons. But, noooooooo… Instead of enjoying a bouncy romp of nookie with my marsupial man whose last name I should really find out, I have to deal with an odiferous, butt-ugly, dead-beat, evil warlock of a dad named Bermangoggleshitz—the very same douchecanoe that tried to kill my rodent children. Not to mention, said sperm donor has called up a Legion of demons from the Underworld. Fanfreakintastic. So armed with my questionable intellect, a shaky handle on the French language and a penchant for blowing up buildings, I’m gonna grab this problem by the nuts and squeeze—like a brazilian times…whoops, bazillion. That French gets me every time. I will have my happily ever after no matter what or my name’s not Sassy Louise…umm… Bermangoggleshitz.

Levi- Justine Elivira

Life can throw one hell of a curveball...

Today is the day! Levi is here!!! I am so excited for you to read Kendall and Levi's story. Levi is the second book in the Forbidden Desires series.

And don't worry if you haven't read Noah. Each book in the Forbidden Desires series is an interconnected stand-alone novel so it's not required to read Noah before Levi.

Levi links: AmazonAmazon UKAmazon AUApple iBooksBarnes&NobleKobo, and Smashwords.
*Available at most Amazon and Apple iBooks international stores.

Levi Synopsis


It is not something I'm used to.

I'm a beautiful woman and I like carefree, no commitment sex. I'm a single man's dream. So when I set my sights on the new bouncer for Forbidden Desires and he doesn't share my enthusiasm for a wild night together, I'm dumbfounded as to why.

Night after night, Levi ignores me–making me want him even more. I flirt and practically throw myself at him, but he's a complete gentleman. His indifference only makes him more desirable. I've made him my next target. He'll be my lover, as soon as I figure out how to wear him down.

My raw sex appeal isn't working with him and maybe there's a reason. He's hiding something underneath his large muscles and adorable dimples. Levi's keeping secrets from me and one night he reveals one of his secrets–he's vowed to be abstinent.

What the hell am I going to do now?

*Recommended for 18+ due to subject matter and sexual content.
**HEA, no cliffhanger, interconnected stand-alone novel.

Teaser #1

When I open my eyes to peek at Levi, he's watching me like a man possessed.

It's invigorating.

It's infuriating.

Why won't he just claim what I'm offering him?

My palm slides down London's neck, as I taste her watermelon lip-gloss. Her lips move against mine effortlessly. I forgot just how nice it is to kiss another woman. There's a unique and sensual way two women's bodies move together that a man and a woman can't replicate. Her soft curves press against mine as the kiss deepens and I love the way she feels. I may have kissed her for a selfish reason, but if Levi won't take me home tonight it's nice to know I have another option.

Her right hand moves from my waist and begins to slide up the front of my body. My nipples harden with anticipation. I arch my back as her hand massages my breast and I moan into her mouth in pleasure. She's summoning an animalistic response from my body and Levi is watching every touch and every kiss.

I'm not sure what turns me on more and right now I don't care. I'm sick of the hot and cold game he plays and I'm at my breaking point. No matter what the end result, the teeter-totter game ends tonight. I want to be with Levi, but I'm done throwing myself at him.

My hand travels around London's hip so I can cup her ass but before I get the chance I'm ripped away from her soft body as I'm confronted by the man who made me desperate enough to be in this position.

"Want to join in? I'm sure a man like you can handle the two of us."

"Cut the shit, Kendall."

"What, you don't want a threesome? I thought this was a fantasy every guy had."

He pulls me into his hard body, holding me to him with one arm behind my back and the other cupping the back of my neck. His lips are just inches from mine and I can feel his hot breath against my skin.

"When are you going to learn that I'm not like every guy? I only want you."

Teaser #2

"What did you think the first time you saw me?" Those aren't exactly the first words I wanted to say to him after what just happened, but there's nothing I can do about that now. Ugh, I'm such a dweeb.

He zips up the front of his pants and slips on his t-shirt before answering. "You don't need to know. A man like me doesn't have any clean or pure thoughts when he sets eyes on a woman like you."

My eyes light up with excitement and I welcome more information. "I think I'm going to like this story. Impure thoughts are exactly what I want to hear. Tell me, please."

He watches me with amusement and then nods. "I thought you were trouble. You walked through the bar looking so damn sexy in kitten heels and a tight skirt. In those few seconds, I thought of every way I wanted to fuck you. I imagined your pouty lips screaming my name. Letting those thoughts roam freely wasn't like me. I felt out of control. I was salivating and I was so thankful that you never locked eyes with me because I would have lost my job and my self-control the moment you had. For fuck's sake, I hauled ass to the bathroom and talked my dick down before I embarrassed myself. I was usually so in control, but you unnerved me and I hadn't even talked to you."

He stares down at the floor and I can tell he's ashamed to admit his private thoughts to me. We're still getting to know each other. We're still learning all of the little quirks about our personalities. He needs to know that his thoughts are nothing to be ashamed of. I like a guy who thinks dirty.

I slip my heels back on and reach for his hands. "You have no idea how much I needed to hear that. For the longest time, I thought my desire for you went unreciprocated."

He watches our hands together and starts playing with my fingers before intertwining his fingers with mine. "How about you, Kendall? What did you think the first time you saw me?"

Without skipping a beat, I reply, "I wondered how fast I could get you to let me sit on your face and ride your dimples. I never thought you'd make me wait this damn long."

He laughs. "I should have known you only wanted me for sex."

"You are a bouncer and work security," I tease. "I thought you wouldn't be able to hold a decent conversation and you'd bore me to death. I'm glad I was wrong."

"As good as I remembered the print book "
If you could sum up Tiger Eyes in three words, what would they be?
Learning to Live

What did you like best about this story?
How much it I still enjoyed it even all these years later. I read this growing up and wasn't sure if I would still enjoy the story in my 40's but yes I really did as it's still a great read.

Davey/Tiger was the my favorite but her little brother was awesome

This was well worth one of my credits. Like mentioned above I read this years ago as a teenager and wasn't sure I would still enjoy it but decided to use a credit and give it a chance. I'm so glad I did as it a wonderful story and well worth my time. Plus it brought back memories of old forgotten items such as cassette tapes, answering the phone in the hallway and just stuff kids today couldn't imagine.

The Guardians of Ivalice By Laura Catherine Cover Reveal @lauracatherinep @BuoniAmiciPress
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Release Date: June 24, 2017
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press ( )

Enter here ➜ ➜


On Ivalice, Prince Morgan has been living in the shadow of his twin brother and older sister. She will be queen one day and inherit the power of Spirit to protect their world and guard the other elements from harm. Morgan wants this power for himself and nothing will stop him from getting it, not even his family. With her dying breath, Queen Tamsin sends the elements to another world where Morgan cannot have them.

On Earth, Nix, Grace, Kendra and Phoebe are four ordinary teenage girls living normal lives where homework and boys are their biggest problems. That is until they absorb some strange glowing balls of light into their bodies and start controlling the elements.

Everything is about to change for these girls when the weight of an entire world is put on their shoulders.


Laura Catherine was born in Melbourne, Australia and spent most of her childhood creating fantasy worlds and talking to her invisible pet cheetah who ran along powerlines.

Her imagination has carried her through childhood where her mother read stories about fantasy worlds at bedtime. Never one to face reality, Laura spent a lot of time turning boxes into ships and castles.

Laura self-published her first novel, Djinn (2013), a Paranormal Romance, and the second in the series, Blooders (2015). Laura is currently working on the next instalment in the Djinn series, Bloodjinn, as well as a few other novels including the first in a new YA series, The Guardians of Ivalice.


In the centre of the room were four glowing orbs dancing around each other in perfect harmony, ebbing and flowing like beating hearts.
“The cloister of elements,” Adrian said, eyes bulging.
Tamsin stroked Adrian’s cheek. “Yes. I have been waiting to bring you here for a long time and I do believe you are all ready to receive this lesson.”
Morgan had been ready and waiting for years to see inside the cloister. He had asked his mother on many occasions, but was rejected every time.
Tamsin touched her necklace with dainty fingers. “Opening this door using the pendant is something you will be able to do when you are Queen, Helia. I brought you here today to show you the elements so you might understand their power and respect it. You are no better than these energies. Their individual power matches your own. Study them and tell me what you see.”
Morgan stepped closer, hand out stretched. The flickering red orb was inches from his fingertips, a strong heat emanating.
“Do not touch them,” Tamsin said and Morgan retracted his hand, glaring at his mother. He felt like a small child being scolded for trying to be involved in something only adults would understand.
I am not a child, he thought. I am powerful and smart, the best of Helia and Adrian’s qualities reside in me. I am the youngest and most capable. I should be the leader, the ruler of Ivalice.
Morgan had a vision for a future where people bowed down before him and worshipped the ground he walked on for his deeds. He would get the recognition he deserved.
Soon, he thought with a devilish grin. Soon my vision will be a reality.

Ross Hoffman held the potential for a perfect life in his hands—a life with Evelyn, the only woman he’d ever allowed himself to love, their baby, and…her husband, Austin Fitzgerald, who also happened to be his best friend. But the challenge of trying to make a threesome into something acceptable—much less the thought of actually sharing Evelyn with anyone—forces him to bolt. Determined to put all thoughts of their relationship behind him, Ross jumps headfirst into a new brewery job in Colorado, and back into the sort of sexual decadence that he hopes will distract him from his misery.

When he agrees to assist Austin through a spate of brewery mishaps, he lays eyes on his true fate—in the form of the petite, mysterious, and exotic Elisa Nagel. Hired as assistant brewer, Elisa is absolutely everything he believes he doesn’t want in a woman. But he’s drawn to her in ways he can’t explain, and can’t help but fall hard, fast, and deep, which places him square the middle of her horrific, until-now secret backstory.

Ross is determined that his love will conquer and overcome the horrors of Elisa’s past, allowing her to trust him with the only thing he desires—her heart.


Amazon best-selling author, mom of three, Realtor, beer blogger, brewery marketing expert, and soccer fan, Liz Crowe is a Kentucky native and graduate of the University of Louisville currently living in Ann Arbor. She has decades of experience in sales and fund raising, plus an eight-year stint as a three-continent, ex-pat trailing spouse.
Her early forays into the publishing world led to a groundbreaking fiction subgenre, “Romance for Real Life,” which has gained thousands of fans and followers interested less in the “HEA” and more in the “WHA” (“What Happens After?”).
With stories set in the not-so-common worlds of breweries, on the soccer pitch, in successful real estate offices and at times in exotic locales like Istanbul, Turkey, her books are unique and told with a fresh voice. The Liz Crowe backlist has something for any reader seeking complex storylines with humor and complete casts of characters that will delight, frustrate and linger in the imagination long after the book is finished.
Don’t ever ask her for anything “like a Budweiser” or risk bodily injury.

Liz Crowe writes intense true-to-life stories that make you feel. Whether it's anxiety, love, fear, hate, bliss, or loss woven into her plot lines, you will feel it deep down to your very soul.
--Audrey Carlan, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

Liz Crowe is one of those rare authors who knows how to take the emotions of her characters and make them real for her readers, binding you to the story.”
---USA Today and Internationally Bestselling Author Desiree Holt

"Liz Crowe is my drug of choice for unconventional romance that pushes the envelope of my comfort zone."
--Bestselling Author of the Enigma Series, Ditter Kellan

“I’ve learned to expect the unexpected with any Liz Crowe novel—along with 3-dimensional characters and well-written, realistic plots.”
--USA Today bestselling author AM Hargrove



“You really know how to make yourself scarce, don’t you?” Austin said by way of greeting.
Ross grunted a reply as he sat gingerly down into a chair at the kitchen table. The sunlight blaring through the window pierced him right in the eyeballs. It shoved the spike of pain nice and deep into his brainpan, blinding and deafening him for a few seconds. “What? Sorry. I’m a little fragile this morning.”
“Whatever, dude. So, can you come?”
“I already told Evelyn I would.” He couldn’t keep the snippy tone out of his voice. It was all he could do at that moment not to puke all over the expensive hardwood floor.
“What? When did you talk to her?” Austin sounded frazzled. But he’d sounded that way ever since Rose’s birth.
“Shit man, I don’t remember. What the hell day is it anyway?”
“What happened to Mr. Pure Living?”
“He got gang banged by a pack of succubus, all right? Cut him a break.”
“Nice,” Austin said. Ross couldn’t tell if he were amused or honestly pissed off.
“Whatever. So yeah, I told her at some point I’d help you guys. I’m somewhat persona non grata around here all of a sudden, anyway.” He rubbed his eyes. “Seriously, what day is it?”
Austin’s heavy sigh set Ross’ sensitive on edge. But he sat still, willing the clanging agony in his head to stop, knowing getting angry would only exacerbate it. “It’s Wednesday morning, eleven a.m. where I am, which makes it nine where you are.”
Shocked at the lost twenty-four hours, he lurched forward, which sent a jolt of nausea up his throat. “Oh, shit.”
“Yeah. So, I guess you heard it all, then. If you talked to Evelyn?”
“I, uh, don’t know,” he hedged as he stumbled to the kitchen sink just in case. The silence on the other end of the line made his pulse race. His good buddy was getting a tad bit bossy and Ross was in zero mood for it. “Guess you should tell me whatever the fuck it all is. Since the last I spoke to Evelyn it was Monday night. Tuesday seems to have been sucked away, along with every ounce of my—”
“Spare me.”
“Dude, just fill me in. Holly showed up here that same night and I’m pretty sure she drugged me or something.”
“Poor little snowflake,” Austin said, amusement clear in his voice this time.
“Yeah. I sure as hell wish I could remember any of it.” He touched his sore dick before pressing fingertips against the many, tiny burned spots and gouges on his chest. “So, anyway, what’s going on now, drama king?”
“Oh, not much I guess. Other than my wife was nearly raped and killed by a psycho almost-ex-employee before he got popped between the eyes by my strange new German lady brewer.”
“You really shouldn’t mess with me right now.” Ross kept his head lowered, waiting for the inevitable over the sink.
“I’m not.”
“Evelyn was…is she all right?” He poured another glass of water and forced it past the rising gorge in his throat.
“Yes. Thanks to Elisa Nagel, she is. Although that woman is now in custody and I gotta go post a two hundred fifty thou bail and get her scary ass in front of my lawyer.”
“Elisa…who?” The room had commenced spinning so he squeezed his eyes shut. “Oh, right. The Berliner brewer chick.” But he knew damn well who she was. Fronting with confusion was his reflex to counter the surge of emotion that had muscled past his pain at the sound of her name.
