Well… at least there was some fabulous books out this year! This year was a busy one for me professionally and personally, so I didn’t have the chance to read as much as I would have liked, but I still have a few favorites! Here are some of my favorite, most memorable reads of the year. Looking back over the year, I can tell I was busy. When I’m busy, I tend to read funny, charming, witty books—-that allow me a total escape from the chaotic routine of my daily life, and these books allowed me that needed break. In no particular order: Right by Jana Aston Anything by Jana is hysterical and steamy. Right is one of the funniest books I read this year, and Everly is my spirit person. I loved everything about this story. Everly and Sawyer’s chemistry is off the charts, add some humor and witty… Read more »

Review & Excerpt: The Darkest Torment by Gena Showalter
REVIEW: Confession of a book junkie… After I read Twilight in 2008, I became OBSESSED with all things paranormal. Starting in 2009, I was the lady who was at my local Barnes and Noble every Tuesday, waiting for the newest paperback release. I read everything PNR back then…everything. I read the whatever the paranormal goddesses wrote; including all the BDB novels and spinoffs—Zsadist lover forever!, the Sookies, Immortals After Dark, Midnight Breed series, Night Huntress (love me some Bones), Demonica series—sex demons—yes, please, the list goes on and on. One of my favorite PNR series, is the Lords. The Lords of the Underworld world captivated my life for years! Book club topics were filled with the love stories of these demon carrying studs from Budapest. Talk about an alpha hunk with a heart of mush…gah, I love them all! I took a break from paranormal romance a couple years ago,… Read more »

Managed is LIVE! Happy Release Day!!!!
It started off as a battle of wits. Me: the ordinary girl with a big mouth against Him: the sexy bastard with a big…ego. I thought I’d hit the jackpot when I was upgraded to first class on my flight to London. That is until HE sat down next to me. Gabriel Scott: handsome as sin, cold as ice. Nothing and no one gets to him. Ever. He’s a legend in his own right, the manager of the biggest rock band in the world, and an arrogant ass who looks down his nose at me. I thought I’d give him hell for one, long flight. I didn’t expect to like him. I didn’t expect to want him. But the biggest surprise? He wants me too. Only in a way I didn’t see coming. If I accept his proposal, I leave myself open to falling for the one man I… Read more »
RELEASE DAY & Excerpt: Endurance by Georgia Cates
BLURB: I’m a doctor. Mobster. Killer. My hands are covered in filth. I don’t have the right to touch anything as clean and pure as Ellison MacAllister.

Careful to keep my burning desire buried beneath the surface. I do it for her—suffer in silence—because it’s what is best for the woman I love. And she has no idea. She’ll be initiated as a Fellowship member soon. One of my mafia brothers will go through endurance so he’ll earn the right to claim her. Make her his wife. Kill. Me. Slowly. I’m running out of time. Only a month remains before she’s beyond my reach forever. I want to taste her. Share sleepless nights. Ride out her storm. I want to give… Read more »
