Title: The Celebration Game

Series: Campfire Fantasy Tales

Author: Candace Robinson

It was only a game… This dangerous and romantic short story will make you second guess Mardi Gras and escape rooms.

MY REVIEW:

I freakin love this short story!!! I was on the edge of my seat through the whole thing!! The Celebration Game is full of intense suspense, horror and a splash of romance!!! I thought the dialogue was amazing in this book, and the descriptions were so vivid!!!

Read on for more info!

AlteredHelix_mock1Title: Altered Helix

Publication Date: May 19th, 2020

Genre: YA/ Paranormal Mystery/ Novella

Publisher: Hypothesis Books

I didn’t want to take the traditional path. First, I wasn’t ready for college. Second, I was going to live with my best friend, Tiff, and work at the Haunted House. Third, did I mention the hot guy Josh that works there too?

The most exciting thing about Austria’s new job, at a local haunted house, was the fact that the toughest looking people screamed the loudest. But when she meets the boy without a home, Josh, Austria’s life takes intriguing and eventful turns. Up until now, Josh has managed to hang with his Street crowd, but they’re in danger, and so is Austria, the girl Josh recently fell for. The group finds themselves joining forces with previously considered enemies who also now find themselves in danger.

Deeply compassionate and full of twists, Altered Helix captures the struggle of polarized people that must work together for the greater good.

My Review:

I read all three novellas in this series and LOVED them!! Here is my reviews…

Altered Helix: Novella One

This was so good!! I had a hard time putting it down when I had to. But I read quickly, and not just because it was short, but it grabbed my attention from the very beginning and then I kept wanting to see what happens and what exactly was going on. I was not disappointed, and I’m really looking forward to reading the next book!!!

Stranded Coil: Altered Helix Novella Two

Ahhh…I’m loving this series!!! I just sucked down novella two in the trilogy!! I love how each one is short but packed full of adventure, romance and friendships. The characters are awesome!! With book two I didn’t even put it down, it’s so exciting!! On to the third one!!!

Paralleled Bond: Altered Helix Novella Three

I loved this SciFi Romance Novella Trilogy!!! I laughed, I swooned, I was on the edge of my seat, and I cried. Who would have thought three little books could have had such an impact on my emotions?! I enjoyed every minute of it.

This last novella was very intense and emotional!! It wrapped up the story perfectly!

Excerpt

Some dangers come barreling at you like a freight train. Others slide right under your nose without being noticed. When I took the job at the haunted house, I never imagined I’d be kidnapped.

As I’m blacking out, it’s my sense of gratitude that brings me peace in my final moments. At least I was able to experience most of my life’s desires before the end.

I’d found the siblings for which I’d yearned while growing up. I’d met someone with whom to share the rest of my life. And perhaps best of all, after many years, I was finally able to see my father again.

Ironic, isn’t it? To find everything I’d ever desired, just before I die. The black spots in my vision grow closer and closer together until they completely consume my sight. I imagine the cut they’ll make in my body when it’s gutted. My breathing becomes shallow. Then, I feel the sharp pressure from the point of the blade against my flesh as it breaks through my skin. My body won’t move. I want to cry out, but my voice fails me.

REVIEW: Mortal Scream

Title: Mortal Scream

Series: Harbingers Of Death

Authors: L.B. Carter & LeAnn Mason

Release Date: September 8, 2020

Summary:

Don’t get caught. It’s the most important lesson… and I failed.

Living life on the move and under the radar, you’d think I’d know not to scream when witnessing a murder. It should be a no-brainer, but my mouth didn’t get the memo, drawing the cops to the wrong conclusion: me.

And the deaths don’t stop there.

When I foresee the demise of one of the officers, my open trap catches the attention of one of the scariest gangs in the whole prison. But they’re not concerned with me — they want the guard.

They say they’re a supernatural team tasked with overseeing the mortal sentence of convicted criminals… and apparently, I’m just like them. A Harbinger of Death.

I thought getting locked up was the worst my life could get. Lesson learned.

***For fans of Dannika Dark, Jennifer L. Armentrout, and Burn Notice comes a gritty NA tale of self-discovery, mysterious pasts, and slow-burn romance with snarky shifters, gorgeous Egyptian gods, and quirky creatures of Greek and Celtic mythology.***

Available at AMAZON

My Review:

This book hooked me from the very beginning and didn’t let go…I need book two!!

The characters were all super interesting to learn about. I loved the MC. Aria the Banshee, was an awesome character! You couldn’t help but feel for everything she had been through growing up, and all that she was going through in the prison. Her character is who pulled me in and kept me invested. As for the Harbingers of Death team in the prison…they were very interesting characters, but I felt no fondness for them at all. Maybe that was the authors plan in writing the first book.

The writing was really well done. Two writers writing with a similar voice is very enjoyable. And these two authors wrote from one to the next so smoothly, it’s hard to notice, especially if you’re not real familiar with at least one of the author’s work. The dialogue was extremely well played out, which is super important in a character driven book.

I love paranormal & mythology books. So many cool characters, and all of them Harbingers of Death made it even cooler!!! I am really looking forward to the next book in the series and seeing were it goes from here!!!

Release Blitz: HART OF VENGEANCE by S.B. Alexander








Love is the deadliest enemy of all.
Convicted murderer Denim Hart swears he didn’t kill one of the most notorious gang leaders in Boston. When he’s released, his first order of business is to clear his name. But he has no clue where to begin. The only witness who could help him disappeared before his trial began.
He might not need the witness when the FBI offers him a deal to expunge his record in exchange for his help. But Denim isn’t a snitch, and no way is he interested in helping The Feds take down his older brother. No matter how many times Denim tells them no, he’s caught in the middle with no way out.
Yet, the FBI is the least of his worries. There’s a contract out on his head. Now, his plan to reconnect with the woman who tortured his dreams for the last eight years is thwarted. Under no circumstances can he let her back into his life. Not until it’s safe.
If Jade Kelly doesn’t find a job soon, her next home will be in some dark alley in Boston. It’s critical she doesn’t screw up her interview with one of the most prestigious law firms in the city. Getting the job might be easy, but keeping it quite another, especially when she learns her potential boss, Kelton Maxwell, is representing the one man she never expected to see again—the one man who walked away from her in high school. The same man who’s incarcerated for murder.
As soon as Denim reappears in Jade’s life, she’s unsure if she should run for the hills or run straight into his arms. She could never resist his seductive charm, and she quickly learns it’s not his sexy ass she needs to run from, but the dangerous gang leader who wants her dead.
Hart of Vengeance is a standalone second chance romance. If you love nail-biting suspense, family drama, a bad-boy hero, a story with twists and turns, and set on the dark streets of Boston, then you’ll love Denim and Jade’s HEA story.
This book is suited for mature audiences.


Kelton Maxwell’s jaw dropped to the table when he saw me. But mine hit the fucking floor when my gaze rounded to the woman sitting next to him. Her silky black hair hung wild and free, and her shiny emerald-green eyes stared back at me. Her round tits appeared bigger than I remembered, and those lips were made to tempt any man, gay or straight.

Her red lips curled slightly, making my knees buckle.

What is Jade Kelly doing here?

My high school days came roaring back with a vengeance. The blood rushed south like a river swollen after a violent storm, causing my dick to throb.

Farley practically pushed me toward the table. “Sit your ass down.”

That was probably a good idea since my dick was growing. I stumbled to the lone chair, not taking my eyes off Jade. My heart punched my ribs as hard as Costa had rammed his fists into my face and gut.

“What happened to you?” Kelton’s voice was deep and commanding, but not enough to make me take my eyes off Jade, who looked everywhere but at me.

A halo shined around her, or maybe it was the light spilling in from the window. Either way, she was an angel. My angel. I’d often lain in my bunk at night, thinking of her, wondering if she was married, had kids, and if she still hated me.

I would give anything to know what was going through her head. The last time I’d seen her was a year before I’d gotten arrested. She’d been walking into a restaurant with her friend Mallory in Roxbury. I’d been in the area, making a drop to a client. I’d almost stopped to say hi, but she had seemed happy, and I couldn’t shit on her happiness.

Kelton snapped his fingers. “Did you hear me? When did you get into a fight? And why didn’t you tell me?”

Jade stared at her blank notepad as her mouthwatering chest rose and fell, drawing my attention to her voluptuous breasts.

I dropped into the chair, but my brain wandered down memory lane, flashing through times when she and I had been naked.

Motherfucker.

Getting laid would be icing on a bare cake. I had a strong urge to kick Kelton out of the room until I could fuck Jade senseless.

“You’re not listening.” Kelton tried to get my attention for the third time.

Jade lifted her head and peeked at me through her long lashes. Desire flashed in her bright emerald orbs.

My dick jerked as I swallowed the sand coating the back of my throat.

“Farley, we’re good,” Kelton said.

No, we weren’t. I wasn’t. With Jade in the room, I wouldn’t be able to concentrate.

There goes my parole hearing.

I mentally shook off images of my girl naked. If I couldn’t get those thoughts out of my head, I would jack off and not care that Kelton and Jade were watching me.

Kelton cleared his throat. “Let’s start again. What happened to you? This will not look good at your parole hearing on Friday.”

The connection between Jade and me snapped. “Why did the parole board postpone?”

“It doesn’t matter,” Kelton said. “It’s in three days, and I’m worried about your appearance.”

“I’ll borrow some makeup from one of the gumps.”

A crease formed in between Jade’s eyebrows. The woman was in for a treat if she wanted to hear about the gay men in prison. But she didn’t need to hear about any of that. She was too pure and innocent.

“Denim.” Kelton’s voice hardened. “How do you expect to display good behavior when your face looks like you ran into an eighteen-wheeler? Is any of this going on your record? Again, why didn’t you inform me?”

I interlocked my fingers in front of me. “No. The warden gave me a pass. And what could you have done if you knew? Besides, I’m healing. You should’ve seen me two weeks ago.”

Jade fidgeted with her pen.

The butterflies inside my stomach were having a fucking party.

“So she works for you?” I asked Kelton.

Jade narrowed her eyes in my direction. Her ball-squeezing emerald eyes penetrated me as if she were trying to take a peek into my black soul. “I have a name.” Her knuckles were white as her delicate fingers clenched her pen.

I’d always loved when she got feisty. Her cute nose twitched, and for some reason that drove me insane with wanting to rip off her clothes.

“Since when do you like the law?” I asked Jade. “I thought you wanted to be a teacher?” She’d talked nonstop about teaching elementary school one day.

Kelton opened his leather binder. “We don’t have time for reminiscing. Save that for if you get parole.”

Jade swallowed, her throat working as she poised her pen over paper.

Please write me a love note like you used to do in high school. I’d always gotten off when she slipped me a note in class, particularly when she’d scribbled the words “I want to fuck you.”

Grateful for the barrier of the table, I lowered my cuffed hands to my lap and adjusted my rock-hard cock.

“Dillon will be at your hearing,” Kelton started. “You’re allowed a family member to speak on your behalf. The board will ask you questions like why you think you should be paroled. Do you have living arrangements? How will you manage challenges? What does your future look like? Are you ready to answer those questions?”

After seeing Jade for the first time in years, I was ready to blow this pop stand because, suddenly, I had a newfound goal in mind. Get out. Track down Jade. Rekindle our relationship.

My Review:

I love Denim Hart!! ❤️ After reading Dillon Hart’s story I had been dying for his brother, Denim’s. I was not disappointed in the least!!

Denim and Jade’s story is a second-chance romance, with plenty of suspense, mystery, family, emotion and lots of heart (and Harts!)
Duke Hart…I wanted to deck him at the beginning and now I’m just still trying to figure him out. But one thing for sure, I can’t wait for his story!!

If you like romantic suspense with lots of heart, then you need to read The Hart series, three books about three brothers. Each book is a standalone, but tied in with the stories of the one before it. You will fall in love with the Hart brothers!!!!



Bestselling author S.B. Alexander writes young adult and new adult romances that span the sub-categories of coming of age, sports, paranormal, suspense, and military fiction. Her writing is emotional, angsty, and character driven. She’s best known for The Maxwell and The Maxwell Family Saga series.
S.B. or Susan as she likes to be called is a navy veteran, former high school teacher, and former corporate sales executive. She’s a lover of sports, especially baseball, although nowadays you can find her glued to the TV during football season.
When she’s not writing, she’s a full-time caregiver to her soul mate of twenty-one years who got a bad deal in life when he was diagnosed with ALS. Her motto: “Life is too short to waste. So live every moment like it’s your last.”

Happy Release Day: Avocado Bliss by Candace Robinson & Gerardo Delgadillo

Title: Avocado Bliss
Authors: Candace Robinson & Gerardo Delgadillo
Publication Date: March 27, 2020

0B951CE6-4A22-466C-8EB4-A7EE786B9A85

Summary :

Dacre Vinson has spent the majority of his life in quite the predicament—even the surf and his books can’t erase his Type 1 diabetes. But when Dacre’s family moves to a new Mexican town, an eccentric girl obsessed with trees offers him a job on the spot, leading to what could be the perfect distraction from his problems.

Salbatora Tames has one true love, her avocado farm. Her family constantly nudges her to be more social, but Sal much prefers the dirt, the sun, and the solitude. Besides, trees listen better than people do.

For Sal and Dacre, their job won’t stay easy breezy for long, not when an avocado delivery to Palenque, Mexico pops up on their radar. Together, they embark on a road trip across the jungle, where they form a tighter bond. However, as obstacles arise, their new-found troubles may lead to more woes than bliss.

BUY AT AMAZON

My Review :

I loved this book!!! It drew so many feelings out of me!!! I absolutely loved BOTH main characters, not to mention some of the side characters. Dacre and Sal both overcame feelings of insecurity, feelings of worry and sadness in their family, and dangers they went through. But through it all they became friends, and then more than friends. It was moving and I admit I got teary eyed more than once.

Robinson & Delgadillo write so well together. Everything flows beautifully and they write such great characters. Bacon Pie was their first book, which I really loved. Now Avocado Bliss was AMAZING!! I think they both love food!!! Lol 😂 I wonder what is in store for their next book?! I hope there will be one!!!

I have to mention the cover!! I really love it, with it’s beautiful colors, the trees, the avocado truck and the silhouette of Dacre and Sal!! BEAUTIFUL!!!

Definitely giving this book 5 Avocados!!!🥑

Summary:

Eva and Rafe’s story continues in this emotional, angsty, rockstar romance from the bestselling author of The Rixon Raiders series

Eighteen-year-old Eva Walker knew going on tour with Black Hearts Still Beat would be complicated.

She didn’t expect to find herself torn between two brothers.

One wants her but he walked away before.

The other needs her but she doesn’t understand why.

It’s only time before the truth comes out, and when it does, nothing will be the same for Country’s newest sweetheart and the black-hearted boys of Rock.

My Review
:

I’m LOVING this series!!!!!!
It’s not only about a Famous Rock Star and Country’s Sweetheart romance, but it’s about friendship, family, choices, mental illness, loyalty and so much more. When Lianne writes she pours so much heart into her characters. They are so complex and real that you get completely wrapped up in their lives. You feel what they feel, and that’s quite a rollercoaster of emotions.

This is probably my favorite of her series, although I love everything that she writes. I’m excited to see how the last book wraps everything up, and I’m hoping she writes about the other band mates!!!

If you haven’t started this series, do it and you’ll be sooo glad you did!!! If you’ve read the first book, YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS ONE!!!!!
5 ROCKIN’ STARS!!!!!!

Review: The Harder You Fall (Rixon Raiders book 3) by L.A. Cotton

Title: The Harder You Fall (Rixon Raiders book 3)
Series: Rixon Raiders Trilogy
Author: L.A. Cotton
Publication Date: January 7, 2020

6BE59784-CDD7-4DEC-BD0E-FB516F088BC0

Summary:

Cocky football players, school rivalry, and the girls who get in their way. Get ready … The Raiders are back for one final play!

Mya Hernandez has scars.

The kind that run deep and leave marks.
Rixon is only supposed to be a temporary place to hide, but it’s quickly becoming something more.
She’s almost certain it has nothing to do with the blond-haired, blue-eyed football player who makes her laugh. Who makes her believe in fairy tales again.
Even if she knows her life is destined to be nothing more than a tragedy.

Asher Bennet has secrets.

Not the scandalous kind, but the ones that fester, slowly eating away at your soul.
On the face of it, he’s Mr Popular, always down for a party and causing a little mayhem.
But on the inside, he just wants someone to see him. Really see him. Too bad the one girl who sees past his facade has already friend-zoned him.
It’s probably for the best though.

She’s different.
A fighter.
She’s everything he wants but can never have.

Until Mya’s past and Asher’s present collide in ways neither of them saw coming.

And suddenly the thing you need most is the very thing you’re supposed to hate.

The Harder You Fall is the third book in The Rixon Raiders series. All books in this series can be read as standalones!

Review: Last To Love (Moonlight Rogues 4) by Alexa Whitewolf

Title: Last To Love (Moonlight Rogues #4)
Author: Alexa Whitewolf
Series: Moonlight Rogues
Publication Date: December 31, 2019

B74AE6AD-0CDF-4458-BBDA-865964143A1B

Summary:

He’s the last one standing… So they sent the best one to break him.

Lucas​

Love is for fools. I left all that wuss shit behind, and no fairy-like, smiling godmother will change my mind. I’ve got enough on my mind with a beta pushing my buttons and a town to keep safe. Never mind these urges inside me surfacing again, when I thought I’d buried them for good. ​

My wolves are falling in amore like bowling pins, and no amount of reasoning will make them stop.

Now the third one’s gone over the moon, and they all expect me to be the last to love.​

Only, they’ve got another thing coming.

‘Cause the only way I’m falling in love?

Is over my dead body.​

Monica​

One more job, they said. One tiny thing I have to do, to bring the prodigal son back home in the warm arms of his beloved family. They said it would be easy. They gave me all the tools.

But the minute I’m facing Lucas, I know all those plans have just failed. Burned, thrown out the window, type of failed. A​nd I fully expect he’ll throw me out on my ass.

So why is it he’s suddenly more interested in getting me in bed, rather than exiled? And what happens when I fall for it, but it’s too late to stop the events I’ve set into motion? ​

*Book IV in a paranormal shifter series filled with werewolves of all kinds, feisty females who stand up to them, and enough suspense to make it interesting. Can be read as a standalone for the romance, but for a better experience it’s suggested you read the full series first.*

ADD TO GOODREADS

Review:

Last To Love was SO MUCH MORE than I expected! When it ended I wanted to just sit and start the series all over again!!

This is one of those stories that you can’t get enough of. These characters are totally made for each other. Their story is one of those that absorbs you, has your heart tingling and you become obsessed with them. Actually it’s the same for each book in this series.

Lucas, who is the main character in this book, has always been my favorite of the wolves. Although I do love them all! He is a STRONG Alpha, and comes from so much turmoil in his past that he has never come to terms with, and he has started losing control gradually through the series. Well in his story it is time for him to face the past. ALL THE FEELS FOR EVERYTHING HE GOES THROUGH!!!!!

Monica is from Lucas’ fathers pack, although she wants out. She is a fiery woman and when she and Lucas come together, it is HOT!!! I came to really like Monica as her story is told. She is drawn to the pack, especially Lucas, and she wants the kind of pack relationship that they have. Lucas’ father sent her there to bring Lucas home. But she doesn’t realize his true intentions until it’s too late.

This book wrapped up the series so perfectly. This is definitely a favorite series for me!! It’s a different kind of werewolf story, with more than just werewolves too! Read the series, especially if you enjoy a really good paranormal romance with lots of action and mythology. Be sure to start with Moonlight Rogues: Origins, it is a novella that introduces each wolf and where they come from, geographically and their tumultuous past.

Evangeline Walker knows how quickly everything can change.
But nothing can prepare her for the moment she meets Rafe Hunter.
Intense gray eyes.
Wicked smile.
Tattoos inked on his skin just begging to be touched. 
Those aren’t the reasons Eva should stay away from him though.
The fact he’s the bassist for America’s hottest rock band is the reason she should run and never look back.
Everyone knows the greatest love stories all start somewhere.

… this is their beginning.

MY REVIEW:
COULD NOT PUT THE BOOK DOWN!!! I can’t get enough of Eva and Rafe. They are such in depth characters, this prequel barely scratched the surface. I can’t wait for more. Not to mention the members of the band. They all have something dark they’ve been through, from what I can tell. I’m so happy that this is Black Hearts Still Beat: The beginning, because I NEED MORE!!
.

EXCERPT:

“I made you some hot chocolate.” He offered me the mug and I took a sip, the smooth rich liquid warming my insides.
“How very rock star of you.” 
“I try.” His gray eyes twinkled with laughter. “Come here.” 
I went to Rafe, and he eased the mug out of my hand, placing it on the ledge. His long fingers brushed my jaw, moving along my neck and into my hair as he tilted my face up to his. “I’ve wanted to do this again all night.” 
My hands wound around his neck as he kissed me, his lips brushing over mine with a heated desperation I felt right down to my toes. We stumbled back as Rafe’s hand slipped to the small of my back pushing me closer as he pressed me against the wall.
“Rafe…” I panted and he broke the kiss.
“You want me to stop?” His eyes searched mine, his pupils blown with lust.
“N- no.”
“Thank fuck.” He dived for me again, attacking my mouth with fervent need. One of his hands slid to my throat, stroking the skin there, his lips chasing his fingers. Sucking and biting, sending shocks of pleasure zinging through me.
“Where have you been all my life?” Rafe whispered into my neck, his words so low I wasn’t sure they were for me. But I’d heard them. Like a gunshot to the heart they’d impacted me.
It was crazy.
We didn’t know each other. We didn’t know any of the important stuff. But I was falling. Hurtling towards the ground hoping, praying, he’d be there to catch me.
“Eva, tell me what you want?” He lifted his face, eyes dark and stormy and so full of need. I swallowed hard.
“This.” I pulled his face to mine, kissing him deeply, rubbing myself against him shamelessly. His mouth curved, and he pushed his head to mine, forcing me further against the wall. My hands pressed at my sides, steadying myself as he hooked one of his hands under my thigh, hitching my leg around his hip. I could feel him thick and hard beneath his jeans, but I wasn’t ready for that.
