RELEASE DAY - Sweet by Tammara Webber

Join us in celebrating the release of SWEET by Tammara Webber! Check out the excerpt and teasers below!

SWEET (Contours of the Heart #3) by Tammara Webber
NA Contemporary Romance

He’s the love of her life, but he doesn’t know it.
She’s his one moment of sacrifice in a lifetime of survival.

He was damaged and wild, but resilient.
She’s always been obedient. Now she’s restless.

Home for the summer between college and med school, Pearl Torres Frank knows two things: Boyce Wynn is the embodiment of everything she should run from, and everything she wants to run to. Rebellious and loud. Unconcerned with society’s opinion of him. Passionate. Strong. Dangerous.

And one more trait he hides from everyone but her:


Boyce watched me, a lit cigarette in one hand and a koozied beer in the other. We hadn’t spoken since that kiss, other than his usual juvenile quips during biology—the ones that drove Mel and Mr. Quinn insane and made Landon smirk and shake his head and had me biting the inside of my cheek to suppress my smile.

At first, I’d been confused, then disappointed, and then angry. I’d worked my way to acceptance, like when I’d known I was drowning and there was nothing I could do. He’d merely gone back to being Boyce Wynn, who did what he wanted and who he wanted. And I’d gone back to being Pearl Frank—star student, social royalty, good girl.

But I couldn’t forget that kiss. The fixed glint of his eyes across the fire said that neither could he.

BOOK REVIEW - Purple Orchids by Samantha Christy

One day . . . one moment . . . one letter.
One lie.
That’s all it took to change the course of our lives.

Gavin McBride
She blindsided me. Broke me. Shredded me.
And now she’s back, thinking I did the very same thing to her.
When I reach out to her, I get more than I bargained for. Much more.
There’s nothing to forgive. But I need her to forgive me.
There’s no way to go back. But I need us to move forward.

Baylor Mitchell
I found a way to survive.
Without him. Without us. Without the future he promised.
I never hid from him. I didn’t know I had anything to hide.
Until he threatened everything I knew to be true.
When he came back and I found out it was all a lie.

We need to accept the past.
We have to learn to trust in the future.
We must risk our hearts once more.
If we want any chance at reclaiming a love that never died . . . on that one day . . . in that one moment . . . with that one lie.

Note to reader: This book is a standalone novel. It is the first book in a series that follows three sisters.

Due to language and strong sexual content, this book is intended for mature audiences.

Review by Linda
4.5 Stars

This is the first book I have read by Samantha Christy. I received this ARC for an honest review.
How many relationships have ended over lies?

This book starts out in the present; flashes back to the college years, and then back to the present. I thought the author did a great job with the flow of the flashbacks.

 Gavin and Baylor meet in college. Baylor was a freshman and Gavin is the older jock. I loved this book more because he was a jock of a sport other than football.
Gavin is the handsome, upperclassman jock, and from a wealthy family.
Baylor is freshman from a small town, and her family owns their own business.  Baylor is literally knocked down by Gavin. Gavin can’t get this girl out of his head, so he slowly seeks her out. These characters seemed real. This book was not an instant love between characters. Their relationship was built slowly and with trust. The banter between the characters was easy and funny.

“Miss me”

I couldn’t put this book down. I wanted to know the lie that changed everything. I was not was not disappointed when it was revealed. All the stars aligning for an explosion of this cute couple!
After the big reveal of the lie, the book flashes back to the present. Gavin and Baylor meet and begin to work through all the consequences of the lie. Get your tissues ready.

I swooned every time Gavin said, “Darlin” in his sexy Texas accent.

This book lost a half star for me in the ending. I felt like the author threw something in the end that didn’t need to be added. I know something had to happen to close out the mystery part of the book, but I wasn’t prepared for the closure. The end of the book went a little farther than I expected, but overall I loved this book. The book was full of love, sexy scenes, and heart-wrenching moments.

I would recommend this book to other people. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

COVER REVEAL - Reaper's Fall by Joanna Wilde

Reaper's Fall is the newest standalone in the Reaper's MC Series.
Painter & Melanie's story will be available on November 10th and 
is currently up for Pre-order!

Pre-order available at the following retailers:

Amazon US: 


He never meant to hurt her.

Levi “Painter” Brooks was nothing before he joined the Reapers motorcycle club. The day he patched in, they became his brothers and his life. All they asked in return was a strong arm and unconditional loyalty—a loyalty that’s tested when he’s caught and sentenced to prison for a crime committed on their behalf.

Melanie Tucker may have had a rough start, but along the way she’s learned to fight for her future. She’s escaped from hell and started a new life, yet every night she dreams of a biker whose touch she can’t forget. It all started out so innocently—just a series of letters to a lonely man in prison. Friendly. Harmless. Safe.

Now Painter Brooks is coming home… and Melanie’s about to learn that there’s no room for innocence in the Reapers MC.

REVIEW- Art & Soul by Brittainy C Cherry

I had always been the invisible art student in high school. 
Passed by. Glossed over. Unnoticed.
Now I was Aria Watson… that girl.
After one bad decision, and being labeled a slut, I was no longer unseen. I was the whore. The ignoramus. The tramp.
I would never be invisible again.
Particularly to Levi Myers. He was the odd boy with the beautiful soul who accepted and understood the broken girl inside me.
Falling in love wasn’t the plan. But how could I resist his promises of hope? Of forgiveness? Of a future I had stopped dreaming of?
We were shattered. We were scarred. We were something strange and beautiful.
We were two lost souls holding on to the only thing that could keep us together.
Each other.

When I start a new book by an author who has released a previous book I absolutely loved, I worry. I worry because I loved the last book so much I want the next book to be just as good or better. Well I have news for everyone that has read Loving Mr. Daniels and adored it as much as me. You NEED to read Art and Soul. The story is so beautiful and real I couldn't put the book down. And when I did need to put the book down I was always thinking about it. Brittainy C. Cherry is definitely not a one hit wonder.

Art and Soul is about Aria and Levi. Aria is a girl that many can relate to. She made a mistake one night and now her life will never be the same. Levi moves in with his dad to try to strengthen their relationship and get some distance from his overly clingy mother. When Aria and Levi cross paths it's magical. Aria and Levi aren't the only great characters in this book. There is Simon, Aria's best friend who stands by her through everything even though he is trying to overcome his own issues. There is Awkward Abigail who becomes everyone's friend by accident.

Art and Soul will literally leave you laughing out loud but will have your heart aching the entire time. It is a beautiful story of young love that everyone should experience. But have your tissues ready, you're going to need them!

"I loved him. I loved him so, so much. I loved him with no regrets of yesterday and no fears of tomorrow. I loved him in the moment, quietly, with secret whispers of love that only our young spirits could comprehend."
5++ stars

BOOK REVIEW - Playing Dirty by C.L Parker

For fans of Bared to You and Beautiful Bastard comes the start of an irresistible new erotic romance series in which competition is the ultimate seduction.

Shaw Matthews plays to win, and he intends to snag a coveted partnership at San Diego's hottest sports agency by signing America's top athlete.

That is, until Cassidy turns the tables—and their steamy encounters start breaking all the rules. 

Cassidy has worked hard to make it in a man's cutthroat arena, and she isn't going down without a fight, not even against the six-two alpha hunk whose rock-hard body awakens desires she's never known before. As Cassidy shares night after night of unending passion with Shaw, the game begins to change. Now Cassidy stands to lose everything—unless a fiery contest of wills can become a winning proposition for two people who keep raising the stakes. 

Playing Dirty is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.


Gifted via netgalley for honest review

This book is hard for me to review, while I liked the premise of the story - I found myself not fully being able to connect to it. Maybe it was because I wasn't too keen on the charachters, maybe it was (and I don't believe I'm going to say this) too much angst. I'm not sure what disconnected me from the general story but it sucks because I really wanted to love this one. 

Shaw and Cassidy are in competetion with each other. Each trying to seduce the other to make it to where they want to be. I really would have liked to have seen more... light- hearted moments, now don't get me wrong, it's full of steam, very bared to you - ish but I just really wanted more.

This book does end with a cliffhanger that leaves you needing answers and I *may* read the next book to see if everything is resolved and hope that the characters grow. This wasn't a bad book but it also wasn't a great book.

3 stars!

BLOG TOUR STOP + REVIEW - Promise me Once by Paige Weaver

PMO BT Banner   PMO social media pic   Once with him was never enough. I am the girl you dislike. The girl you snub at parties. I am the one who flirts with men and knows no boundaries. I am the one you whisper about. The one who has no rules. I am the one who takes and uses without any regret or excuses. On the outside I am perfect. I have money, looks, and a personality that makes people stand up and take notice, but on the inside I am broken and hurting. Then I met Cash Marshall. He wasn’t what I needed, but I wanted him anyway. It was Cash’s carved, muscular body I thought about. It was his cool, confident touch I craved. I swore he would only be a one-night stand, another distraction to take away the pain. But then our world changed. Our story is not about love. Love is pretty and sweet and full of niceties. Those no longer exist. Our story is about finding each other again in a world gone crazy. It’s about surviving the impossible when war ravaged our land. It’s about saving each other from the darkness and finding out just how strong we could be. And maybe, just maybe, along the way, we’ll find love… Once and for all. goodreads  


Holy crap! Cash….*swoon* He may just be my new book boyfriend.
Promise Me Once starts out with the meeting of Cash and Cat Pre-Apocalyptic times. It takes us on a short journey with them but if you read Promise me Darkness and Promise Me Light you know what is to come. All hell breaks loose.

There was quite a jump ahead and when I got to that part I thought it would ruin the book for me, but I was shocked when it didn’t and it made complete sense.

Just like the previous two books in this series, I couldn’t put this one down. I admit that I liked the first book the most so far but I think that may be just because it is the original. There were definitely parts that felt very reminiscent of the first two books and it only mildly bothered me and there were also parts that seemed very similar to a very popular zombie themed tv show.

With all that being said though, it is still a solidly good read. It has action, tension, angst, steam and raw emotion. I admit there was one scene with Cash and his parents that I was quite teary eyed while reading. Of course it ends on a bit of a cliff hanger so I hope we won’t have to wait too long for the next book in the series to complete Cash and Cat’s story. But give me a little while to grow my nails back because the last 30% made me bite all my nails off!

4 Stars
Promise Me Once Teaser 31  

  PMO Excerpt Reveal Part Two   He didn’t answer, just stood there and stared at me with a dark look that seemed to see my deepest, darkest desires.
I felt a stirring of panic. To cover it up, I rolled my eyes and grabbed my purse. “Whatever.” I wasn’t in the mood for some kind of mind fuck.
I started to go around him but his hand shot out and grabbed my arm, stopping me.
“Cat,” he growled.
“What?” I snapped, jerking my arm away from him.
“You’ve got some nerve.”
I frowned. “And you’ve got some nerve walking in the ladies restroom, Cash. You don’t belong in here. Just like you don’t belong out there. Leave.” I pointed to the locked door.
Warning bells went off in my head when I saw the tick in his jaw but it was too late.
“Screw it,” he hissed between clenched teeth.
He shoved his hand under my hair and yanked my mouth to his.
He shoved his hand under my hair and yanked my mouth to his.
I inhaled sharply. His kiss was punishing. Bruising. He devoured me. I made a feeble attempt to push away from him but his fingers tangled into my hair, holding me tightly.
His tongue dipped inside my mouth, hot as it urged mine to play. He grabbed my wrist and held me against the counter, grinding his hips into mine. I gasped and he took advantage of it, thrusting his tongue further into my mouth. The hardness under his jeans pushed into me, making parts of me grow damp and achy.
He bit my lip brutally then sucked at it gently, making a small cry escape from me. Fuck, the man knew how to kiss. He was control. Heat. Desire. Passion. He was everything in one perfect package and more.
Without warning, he grabbed me around the waist and lifted me up, sitting me on the cold granite counter. The coolness against my thighs made me suck in a shuddering breath.
Cash ran his hands along the outside of my thighs, grasping them tightly.
“You were right, Cat. I don’t belong in this place,” he said in a low whisper. “I belong here instead.”
He jerked my legs apart and stepped between them. The counter was low and he was tall. His crotch fit perfectly between my legs. Right where I needed him. Right where I had to have him.
He shoved his hand under my hair again and grasped my nape, dragging my mouth back to his. Raw desire made the kiss hard and fast. There was no tenderness, no hesitation, and no mercy. That man was gone. There was only taking and giving. A man that knew what he wanted and was going after it.
I grabbed a handful of his shirt and yanked him closer, moaning when his cock hit my crotch behind his jeans. It was just the hint he needed. He reached under my dress and hooked his fingers in my panties. Breaking the kiss, he yanked the little swath of material down my legs, his eyes staying on mine with intensity.
Please Visit Paige Weaver's Facebook Page tomorrow to see what happens in Part Three. You are not going to want to miss this.

    Promise Me Darkness"He was my darkness and I was his light. We couldn't exist without each other." For me, life was simple. I went to school and studied. I spent time with my friends and stayed out of trouble. I didn't drink or swear and I only dated gentlemen. I was the typical good girl with a bright future. My world seemed perfect. But that was about to change. Ryder Delaney was the one imperfection in my life. He was the bad boy, the black sheep, the one your mother always warned you about. He had only one hard-and-fast rule - Don't fall in love. But some rules were meant to be broken. We were best friends, inseparable since childhood despite our differences. I knew the real man hiding behind the tattoos and bad attitude. He knew all my secrets and dreams. But he didn't know there was one thing I wanted and couldn't have...him. But sometimes Fate has a way of intervening. Soon our world collapsed. War erupted. Darkness prevailed. Alone and on the run, our only goal was to survive and to ignore the feelings we had for each other. But love is powerful... and so is the darkness.  

Promise Me Light
The epic conclusion of New York Times bestselling book Promise Me Darkness.
"I'm darkness, Maddie. Stay away from men like me. You'll only get hurt." At one time my life was simple. Easy. But that was before the war. Now I was no longer an average college student. I was a survivor. A woman living in a ravaged world. My future was not bright and my life was far from perfect. The war had taken so much from me… but it wasn’t finished yet. It wanted more. It wanted my heart. My soul. The one person I couldn’t live without. It wanted Ryder Delaney. My best friend. The bad boy. The one person who could fight like no other and love me like no one else. He was the father of my baby. I watched him walk away one hot summer day and I prayed he would return. I needed him like I needed air to breathe and water to drink. Without him I was lost. A light without her darkness. Until he returns, I’ll wait for him. And I believe he will return because love is powerful… And so is the light calling him home.
