TOUR REVIEW: Tattooed Dots by Kimberly Knight

TOUR REVIEW: Tattooed Dots by Kimberly Knight

It was fate that I read this book… really, I’m serious about it being fate. I remember when this book released months ago and I added it to my TBR pile. A love affair on a singles cruise, sounds promising and fun. A unique twist in the ever growing indie book themes. Then one thing led to another, life happened and my ever growing TBR list, well, kept growing. The thing about TBR lists, they only seem to grow, never diminish. Last month I went to a book signing in NYC with one of my besties. My first girls weekend in over a year! Woo-hoo. It was a great time. After the signing while drin…I mean mingling in the hotel bar, my bestie and I met three amazing authors. Guess who one turned out to be? Yep, Kimberly Knight. After promising her I’d read her books weekly while keeping in… Read more »

Tour Review: Make It a Double by Sawyer Bennett

Tour Review: Make It a Double by Sawyer Bennett

What a pleasant surprise this story was! This is the first book I’ve ever read by Sawyer Bennett and it certainly won’t be the last. While this is the second in the Last Call series, it can be read as a stand alone. I’m actually about to dive into book one because the characters in this series are incredibly real, charming, and sassy. I want to know them better! This book is about Brody Markham, a quiet and anti-social yet hot, alpha male who walks around with a chip on his shoulder. We find out early on that he was just released from prison for killing a man while driving under the influence. He carries an incredible amount of guilt and truly believes he’s worthless. At times he’s arrogant, pissed off at the world -usually at himself even more, and is a jerk to those closest to him. Scorned by… Read more »

Cover Re-Reveal: Giving In by M.R. Joseph

Cover Re-Reveal: Giving In by M.R. Joseph

Hello Readers- I wanted to fill you in on the reason for the subtitle change for my latest work GIVING IN. This past Friday I was contacted by CreateSpace (and later in the day by Amazon) that another author had reached out to them about a conflict regarding similarity in the subtitle of our books. The similarity of the subtitles was not done purposely and was conceived without knowledge of the other series (I thought I had accurately created a completely unique subtitle name). I decided the best course of action was to immediately have my artist make an appropriate book cover revision with the new subtitle. We contacted the other author and let her know it would be handled immediately. She was appreciative of our quick response. It was a stressful couple of days to see my latest labor of love being temporarily unavailable for potential new readers for… Read more »

SPOTLIGHT Excerpt: Love, in English by Karina Halle

SPOTLIGHT Excerpt: Love, in English by Karina Halle

~Excerpt~ “You know, I can’t pretend any longer,” I blurted out, surprising myself. I had reached my limit. He had stopped, standing absolutely still, his back to me. He was either going to start walking again or he was going to turn around. I held in my breath. With his back to me he said, “No. We can’t. I have one last question for you.” That wasn’t what I expected. Questions were getting dangerous. “What?” I asked softly. He slowly turned around. “What is love? In English.” I raised my brows. “Love, in English, is love?” “What is it in Spanish?” I was so enthralled by his hypnotic eyes, I could barely remember. “Amore?” He shook his head ever so slightly. “No. Love in Spanish is you.” Then he turned around, heading back. This was bullshit. I got out of my chair and ran for him. I grabbed him by… Read more »

SNEAK PEEK: Make It a Double by Sawyer Bennett

SNEAK PEEK: Make It a Double by Sawyer Bennett

***  SNEAK PEEK…Make It a Double, releasing April 21, 2014*** While I just helped Gabby move into Hunter’s house, I certainly didn’t need to ask them to reciprocate the favor. The only things I own are my clothes, and those were gifts to me from my mom. She had taken me out shopping the day after I got home from prison, outfitting me with an entirely new wardrobe. I mean… new as opposed to wearing prison garb for five years. I felt ashamed that my mom had to buy her twenty-eight-year-old son clothes because he didn’t have a dime to his name.I put the last of my groceries away, fold up the brown paper bags, and tuck them in the space between my refrigerator and the kitchen wall. Turning around, I observe my little studio apartment. I see it all in just a quick glance, because it’s about the size… Read more »
