Synopsis


In the horror show of Gods and Monsters, Eden Ryel was the star. Conceived of her mother, a Merovingian--a direct descendant of Christ--and her father, the half-human son of a fallen angel, her very existence had prompted The Great War. Prophesied to be the Keeper of the Balance, Eden struggles to realize her purpose.

Levi, the overconfident and charming half-human son of Lucifer takes nothing seriously. Not even when he finally meets the young woman who is destined to end his existence. A common bond is formed under the pressures they face from both sides, but their respective religious texts predict opposite outcomes. Either way, they must choose: war, death, or love.

KING by T.M Frazier - Blog Tour and Book Review

KING. IS. HERE!


Homeless, hungry and desperate enough to steal, Doe has no memories of who she is or where she comes from.

A notorious career criminal just released from prison, King is someone you don’t want to cross unless you’re prepared to pay him back in blood, sweat, pu$$y or a combination of all three.

King’s future hangs in the balance. Doe’s is written in her past. When they come crashing together, they will have to learn that sometimes in order to hold on, you have to first let go.

Warning: This book contains graphic violence, consensual and nonconsensual sex, drug use, abuse, and other taboo subjects and adult subject matter. Although originally slated to be a standalone, KING is now a two part series


REVIEW

Holy fudge sticks!!! This book, oh this book. I don't even really know where to start but I guess I'll start with a warning because who doesn't like a good warning eh? King is of the darker nature and may contain triggers for some people.... Heed my warning.... Don't read then complain because it's not all sunshine and puppies, I'm telling you now, it's a dark path. Not the darkest I've read but it's still there.

Doe is basically a walking empty shell. She doesn't know who she is, or why she exists, she only knows one thing, she must survive. My heart absolutely broke for Doe. To be so alone in the world, broken, homeless, hungry. To do just about anything just to keep herself from starving.

King, oh King, he was definitely a character. After one night where Doe and King's paths cross, Doe becomes stuck in the world of King. Sure she has shelter and food and all the basic necessities to live, but that comes with a price, that always comes with a price.

What happens when you fall in love with the devil himself? Would you do anything to fight for what you love? Or do you continue to run?

T.M Frazier did an amazing job at bringing all the feels. So many times my knuckles turned white from anger but in the next chapter she made the world right again. This is definitely a book that pulls you, it invests you in the characters, their lives, you love people you thought you'd never love, you cry for people you thought you'd never cry for. KING has a bit of everything for start to finish, it's action packed and will have you turning the pages until there are no more to turn. Add in some amazing side characters, and you have a recipe for success.
#LongLiveTheKing
5 Stars!

Excerpt 
“Hey there,” a deep voice rumbled against my ear.
When I turned around, I was eye level with a wall of leather with white patches sewn into it. One read VICE PRESIDENT and the other, BEACH BASTARDS. The man wearing the vest had long blonde hair that draped over to one side of his head, revealing the shaved area beneath. He had a beard, not stubble, a full-on beard that was a few inches long and very well groomed. He stood well over six feet, his frame lean yet very cut and muscular. I couldn’t tell what color his eyes were because his lids hung heavy and were slightly reddened. His entire neck was covered with colorful tattoos and when he went to light a cigarette I noticed that the backs of both of his hands and were covered in ink as well.
“Hey,” I answered back, trying to assert my newly found false confidence.
He was beyond attractive. He was gorgeous. If I had to end up in someone’s bed, I imagined that being in his wouldn’t be half-bad. He sniffled, drawing attention to the light dusting of white powder trapped in his nostrils.
“They call me Bear. You belong to anyone?” he asked seductively, leaning in toward me.
“Maybe…you?” I winced at my choice of words. Of all the fucking things I could have said, THAT was what came to mind? Stupid fucking mouth. Nikki was right. I spoke first and thought second.
Bear chuckled. “I’d love that, beautiful, but I got something else in mind.”
“Oh, yeah? What would that be?” I asked, trying to keep my tone light although my mind and heart were racing.
“This party? It’s for my buddy. And he was down here for a total of thirty minutes before he hightailed it upstairs to drown himself in a bottle of Jack. He’s like a cat in a tree, can’t seem to talk him down. It’s understandable, seeing as he’s been away a while, but I figure you can help me out.”
He hooked his finger into the front of my skirt and slowly dragged me toward him until my nipples were flush up against his chest. He pressed his fingers into the skin right above my public bone and I resisted the urge to jump back by biting down on my bottom lip.
“The BBB’s have never really been his thing.” He paused when he saw the confused look on my face at his abbreviation. “Beach Bastard Bitches.” He explained. “But you? You’re new. You’re different. You’ve got this cute little innocent thing going on, but I know you’re not or you wouldn’t be at this kind of party if that was your deal. I’m thinking he’ll like you.” Bear brushed his lips against the side of my neck. “So maybe you go up there. Make him happy for me. Make little him happy by wrapping those gorgeous lips around his cock for a while. Then when you’re done, bring him back down here to civilization. And maybe later, if you’re a good girl and do what you’re told, we can go back to the clubhouse and have some real fun.” He grazed his teeth along my earlobe. “Think you can you do that for me?”
“Yeah, yeah I can do that,” I said. My skin prickling from his touch. And I could do it.
I think.
“What’s your name anyway?” Bear’s hand slowly traveled up the back of my leg, pushing up my skirt, it came to rest on my ass cheek, which was then exposed to anyone who might have been looking in our direction.
“Doe. My name is Doe,” I breathed.
“Fitting.” He said with a chuckle. “Well, my innocent looking little Doe.” Bear leaned in close and surprised me by planting a soft kiss on the corner of my mouth. His lips were soft, and he smelled like laundry detergent mixed with liquor and cigarettes. I was just beginning to think that the kiss meant that he’d changed his mind and didn’t want me to send me away to his friend, but no such luck. He pulled away abruptly and turned me around by my shoulders so that I was facing the stairs. He swatted me on my ass, propelling me forward. “Up the stairs you go, sweetheart. Last room at the end of the hallway. Be good to my boy, and me and you will get to play later.” He sealed his words with a wink and as I made my way up the stairs I turned back and flashed him a fake smile. I hoped the guy at the end of the hallway was like Bear, because then maybe it wouldn’t be so bad.
Then a thought hit me that had me fighting back the tears that sprung from my eyes with a sudden force that almost took me to my knees.
I’d officially sold myself, and the price was far more than any dollar amount

Review
Bound by Lies: Rebecca Shea
An ARC was given for an exchange for an honest review.
HOLY HELL!! I can’t, I just can’t! I’ve read every single book Rebecca has written. All of which I’ve loved…each for different reasons. But this one… This. One. Right. Here. OMG is not sufficient. Rebecca stretched herself further than she has ever done and the conclusion is SIMPLY AMAZING!! This book has left me yearning for more from Rebecca.
The havoc in which my heart was left seems to pair with Emilia’s. I was scared to pick up where Rebecca left off. I didn’t think my heart was capable of being broken yet again. I’m so glad I took the plunge into the deep end and stayed there until the surface seemed to appear out of nowhere.
The story picks up right where Broken by Lies ends. Emilia is crushed. I quite frankly, so am I. Alex is dead. Sam is not who he said he was and Emilia is all alone. Life is bleak for Emilia. She really has no one and nowhere to turn. Until Sam takes it upon himself to keep her “safe.” But will he really be able to keep her safe? Is Alex still giving orders from the grave? Did he really die?
The only way to find out is to read this book!! I HIGHLY advise one clicking this gem.
Five broken and bound hearts!

The Song of David by Amy Harmon - Release Day Blitz

Meet Millie and David (Tag) in the newest stand alone by Amy Harmon
 "She said I was like a song. Her favorite song."

NOW AVAILABLE!

Barnes & Noble: http://bit.ly/1f90a46



She said I was like a song. Her favorite song. A song isn’t something you can see. It’s something you feel, something you move to, something that disappears after the last note is played.

I won my first fight when I was eleven years old, and I’ve been throwing punches ever since. Fighting is the purest, truest, most elemental thing there is. Some people describe heaven as a sea of unending white. Where choirs sing and loved ones await. But for me, heaven was something else. It sounded like the bell at the beginning of a round, it tasted like adrenaline, it burned like sweat in my eyes and fire in my belly. It looked like the blur of screaming crowds and an opponent who wanted my blood.

For me, heaven was the octagon.

Until I met Millie, and heaven became something different. I became something different. I knew I loved her when I watched her stand perfectly still in the middle of a crowded room, people swarming, buzzing, slipping around her, her straight dancer’s posture unyielding, her chin high, her hands loose at her sides. No one seemed to see her at all, except for the few who squeezed past her, tossing exasperated looks at her unsmiling face. When they realized she wasn’t normal, they hurried away. Why was it that no one saw her, yet she was the first thing I saw?

If heaven was the octagon, then she was my angel at the center of it all, the girl with the power to take me down and lift me up again. The girl I wanted to fight for, the girl I wanted to claim. The girl who taught me that sometimes the biggest heroes go unsung and the most important battles are the ones we don’t think we can win.

**This is David ‘Tag’ Taggert's book, a supporting character introduced in The Law of Moses. This is a stand-alone story.

REVIEW

It's no secret that I'm a massive Amy Harmon fan. Every step of the way. Her writing is flawless and every book packs a little more punch than the last and just when you think it's impossible for her to get better, she proves you wrong, every. single. time. The Song of David was no exception.

Also note, while David can be read as a standalone, I HIGHLY recommend reading The law of Moses first - if you ever plan on reading Moses, if you read David first, it has major spoilers on Moses' story (trust me Moses is JUST as freaking powerful)

David Taggert aka Tag stole my heart in The law of Moses, while I loved Moses, something about Tag pulled at me and I needed to know his story. I'm so happy that Amy thought his story needed to be told too. 

Tag is one of a kind as well as MIllie. Two people that come from two toatlly different places in life, they find each other and live happily ever after. That's probably what you want me to tell you, but I'm not going to tell you that because this isn't JUST a story of love. It's so much more. It's a journey. A journey of finding yourself, accepting yourself, and loving yourself for who you are so that you can open yourself up to love another. It's a story of life and it's one of the most beautiful things I've ever read. 

I read so many books on a daily basis and while most are fantastic, they are what I call surface books. No profound meaning, just girl meets boy and they fall in love, good stories just no real depth. The Song of David is not that. It's a layered book, it burrows down to your soul, it takes up residence there, and it grows until you're so full of emotions that you feel like you're going to burst. I cried while I was reading, I cried when I closed the book, I cried when I sent Amy a dozen messages, and before I put my head on my pillow, I shed a tear once again for Tag and Millie and this beautiful story of love, and life, and growth. It is not one I'll soon be forgetting. This book was perfection, pure perfection and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Once again, exceptional job Amy. I hope you'll continue to grow and push yourself to create more books that make ME grow and push myself. 5 #TagTeamed Stars! 



Excerpt 


Amelie and Henry didn’t come by the gym the next day. On Saturday, I thought I saw them once, beyond the wall of windows along the front of the gym, but when I looked again they were gone. I shrugged, deciding Henry must not have been as excited by the idea as Amelie thought he would be. A few minutes later I looked up to see them hovering near the speed bags, Amelie holding firmly to Henry’s arm, Henry looking as if he was about to bolt and drag his poor sister with him. They were garnering some strange looks—Henry with his crazy bedhead, his darting glances, and jittery hands and Amelie because she stood so still and looked so out of place in a gym filled with muscles and men.
I called a quick halt to my bout, escaping Axel, who was trying to pummel me into next week, and slid between the ropes that cordoned off one of the octagons.
“Amelie! Henry!” I called, noting how Amelie’s face was immediately wreathed in a relieved smile, a smile so wide it spread to her eyes, giving the illusion of sparkle and life. But Henry started backing up, pulling his sister with him.
“Yo, Henry. Hold up, man.” I stopped several feet from them and lowered my voice. “Did you know that Jack Dempsey versus Jess Willard was the very first fight to be broadcast over the radio?”
Henry stopped moving and his hands stilled.
“Do you know what year that was, Henry?”
“1919,” Henry said in a whisper. “The first televised fight was in 1931. Benny Leonard vs. Mickey Walker.”
“I didn’t know that.” Actually, I had only known about the Dempsey, Willard fight because I’d seen a biography on Dempsey on Netflix the night before. God bless Netflix. The mention of the radio had made me think of Henry and the sportscast blaring from his bedroom. “You wanna tell me more?”
“David ‘Tag’ Taggert, light heavyweight contender with a professional record of eighteen wins, two losses, ten knock outs.”
“You checked up on me, huh?”
Henry’s mouth twitched, and he looked away shyly.
“You did! What else did you find out? That all the ladies love me, that I’m the best looking fighter, pound for pound, in the universe?”
Henry looked confused for a second, and I realized he was searching his mind for that stat. I laughed. “Just kidding, buddy.”
“Six-foot three, 215 pounds, most often compared to Forrest Griffin and Michael Bisping?” Henry’s voice rose on the end, clearly seeking approval.
“I’m more charming than Bisping, and I have better ears than Forrest. But they could both probably kick my ass.”
“He said ass, Amelie!” Henry whispered, half shocked.
“Yes he did, Henry. It’s okay. That’s how fighters talk,” Amelie soothed.
“Can I say ass?” Henry whispered again, curiously.
“You can,” I cut in, “after you learn how to fight.”

BOOK REVIEW - A Pound of Flesh by Sophie Jackson


A Pound of Flesh by Sophie Jackson
Synopsis –
Lose your heart to your new bad boy book boyfriend. Wes Carter - sexy, edgy, behind bars, with emotional scars as permanent as the ink on his skin, just waiting to be healed by love...
Fans of Samantha Young, Jodi Ellen Malpas, Jamie McGuire, Katy Evans and Prison Break will find this powerful love story utterly addictive and unforgettable.
Their love is forbidden. But won't be denied... Can true love heal the deepest scars?
For Kat Lane, teaching inmates at a New York prison is her way of upholding the legacy of her beloved father, murdered fifteen years ago. But when new student Wes Carter walks into her classroom, she's shaken by the strength of her attraction to him. Carter is as handsome as he is dangerous, as mysterious as he is quick-witted - and he ensures people keep their distance. Yet vibrant Kat bypasses his defences and challenges him to reveal the real man behind the intimidating reputation. As their emotional barriers crumble, their inescapable but forbidden feelings cannot be ignored. But will Kat's discovery of Carter's role on the night her father died force them apart...or bind their hearts for ever?
A Pound of Flesh is a tale of loyalty, redemption and all-consuming love against the odds, introducing an irresistible bad boy hero...



KLAIRE'S REVIEW 

The cover to A Pound of Flesh initially drew me towards this great looking read, flip up the synopsis and it piqued my interest even more. I was so ready for something different, something unique, and something that would hold my attention. This didn’t exactly disappoint and threw into the mix that coveted book boyfriend title. I don’t have them, but I know many do and I don’t hesitate to add that Carter will undoubtedly become one very quickly. 
At 50 odd % this was looking to be a stellar 5 star read for me, however by the time I had finished and thought about plot lines, characters and other such things I realised it wasn’t quite at the 5 star mark. I say that with a heavy heart as this book really is good, in fact it’s brilliant but one or two things let it down in the end. I’m going to start with those negatives then rave about the rest later.
There’s a taboo element in here, the teacher/student one but it’s one that is a little more unconventional that what we would normally read. It steps out the box a little in its genre, however, taboo it is. Wes Carter is an inmate, doing time for a crime he took the blame for. Kat Lane teaches inmates at the correctional facility, her pound of flesh she promised her father the night he was murdered. Here’s the taboo element, she signed a non-fraternization clause in her contract. Clearly the pair starts something that they can’t stop and here is my first gripe with the plot. The threat to Kat’s job seemed like it held no weight in this story. It wasn’t developed enough for my liking and almost seemed an afterthought. Of course she worries about it and it’s there in the story but it should have been a bigger part of it. In fact, a few plot lines that ran through this novel were just like that, including Carters relationship with Max and his interactions with his cousins and the business. They were, to me, very big plot lines that kind of paled in significance when really they shouldn’t have.
What does that leave the reader with then? It leaves us with the story of Kat and Carter and that in itself is really quite something extraordinarily beautiful. The passion just screams at you from the way that Sophie Jackson has written this. I had many moments where I needed to catch my breath, I wanted to soak it all in and get lost with them both. Carter’s attitude and aggression is extremely volatile at the beginning and I found myself wondering how it would pan out. Could Kat tame the beast that is Wes Carter? Sophie writes a mesmerising tale of one woman and how she brought a man to his knees and quite simply broke him. I found a love story in here that could rival the best of them. What I didn’t like so much was watching the change in Carter. The author took one character and made him something else by the time she was finished. I wasn’t convinced this was the right way to write Carter, he lost his bad boy edge; his rough calloused attitude dwindled the more he fell for Kat. Whilst Kat kind of rose from the ashes. Both change in their journey with each other, both break and show their vulnerabilities. They both hit rock bottom then set about the process of building each other back up. They fight for what they believe in, struggle to come to terms with their feelings. But boy do they get there.
I wouldn’t consider this an ugly cry but there are certainly some scenes in here that can bring the reader to their knees. I use the word soppy lightly, but there are a few scenes that I would class as that. It’s not really my kind of thing in all honesty, however the way in which Sophie weaved her magic words enabled these scenes to work and fit right in. I wouldn’t say the authors writing is flawless, as I did encounter an overused word or two but it did sweep me up and enticed me to continue to the end. Engrossed is a word I would use to describe my feelings. There’s so much emotion in this book and the reader feels it from start to finish. It’s there in bucket fulls. The reader is taken on one hell of a ride in terms of their relationship. There’s no second guessing what’s going on with them either. You’re never really waiting too long for a plot twist or a skew in the story. It just is, I often enjoy reading this way. It flows better and leaves your head clear to just simply enjoy the story as it unfolds. There are some clich├ęd moments in here but I’m a believer that these days it’s a norm in a book and they by no means mar the story what so ever.
It upsets me greatly to leave a 4 star review for this piece of work, but I have explained what I felt were its short comings. This book will not disappoint, far from it actually. I’m so excited to see more of Sophie Jacksons work in the future, and definitely Maxs story which comes to us next year. I’m also eager for the novella, a continuation of Kat and Carters story as they put one foot in front of the other and navigate their lives. Highly recommended!
