A past tragedy has left Lily Holmes burdened with a devastating secret…
Since the death of her twin sister, Lily can’t bear to be touched. Not accidentally, not casually…and certainly not intimately. This makes it impossible for her to confess to her best friend Adam Roberts that she’s in love with him. She can’t give him the sort of relationship he needs, so she watches in silence while he plans his wedding with someone else.
Enter Nikoli Kinkaid, the campus manwhore…
Nikoli is a self-proclaimed connoisseur of women, and he wants to add Lily to his list of conquests, but she wants nothing to do with him—until he makes her an offer she can’t refuse. He’ll teach her to enjoy human contact again, giving her a chance to win over Adam, while Nikoli uses all his considerable charm to seduce her.
But Lily raises the stakes…
Lily loves cars. Her late father was a racer, and she grew up under the hood of a car and on the racetrack. Nikoli has a limited edition 1970 Plymouth Barracuda she covets, so she informs him the terms of their deal also require he not sleep with anyone for six months. If he does, she’ll win the car. If she surrenders and ends up in his bed, his beloved ’Cuda is his to keep.
In an intricate dance of control and surrender, a reluctant friendship becomes something more. Lily begins to crave things she never believed she could, and Nikoli realizes there is more at stake than his reputation.
If Lily overcomes her phobia, will she crave Adam’s touch as she’s starting to crave Nikoli’s? Or will she only find pleasure from the touch of a semi-reformed manwhore?

 

review

 Lily has had a rough life but she makes her way through as best she can. Except for being dealthy afraid of being touched. Her friends have tried to help her but it just doesn’t work. Which also makes her crush on her best friend Adam even harder. She loves him but she couldn’t stand to be touched by him.  
Nikoli is the campus manwhore (don’t tell him that, he HATES it). He gets warned off chasing Lily but that just makes him want her more. And when he finds out she’s in love with her best friend, he makes a deal with her; he’ll help her for prurient reasons.   
I both loved Nik and hated him. He was the definition of manwhore but he was also the only one willing to put the time and effort in to helping Lily overcome her Haphephobia (fear of being touched – yes I Googled it).
5 stars!

 

 

 

Kade
I fucked up.
She was the best and worst mistake I ever made.
I took the coward’s way out and ran.
Now I have a chance to make it right, but she’s being stubborn. It used to be cute, but this time it can get her killed.
Boston’s latest serial killer has his sights set on the only woman I have ever truly loved, and I will keep her safe even if it pisses her off, even if she hates me for it.
All bets are off this time. I want her. He wants her. Only one of us will win.
And I never fucking lose.
Angelique
He left me broken, shattered. Pain unlike any I’ve ever felt filled me in the wake of his absence.
Six years later, I thought I’d finally gotten over him and moved on.
But Fate is a tricky bitch. She likes to torture us.
She brought Kade back to me, but I won’t ever hurt like that again.
I just have to stay out of his bed until this is over.

Fate is a cruel, cruel bitch.
review
After meeting Kade in Nik’s book, I wanted to hear his story. So I’m glad we got to. And got to see the end of the campus killer.  
Angel has been a bartender for years. She makes the mistake of taking a break outside and sees the campus killer dumping his latest victim. And he sees her. So now she’s a target for this serial killer.  
Kade has been in Boston helping to track down the campus killer when he gets a call that there is a witness now. Imagine his surprise when it’s someone he loved from his past.  
An intense, gripping thriller with Kade and Angel’s love story wrapped in it. I hope we see more from this family. I love these brothers!
5 stars!

 

So who am I? Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tells me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.

 

Growing up in a small town, I learned a lot of values , I also learned parents have spies everywhere and there’s always someone to tell your mama you were seen kissing a particular boy on a particular day just a little too long. So when you get grounded, what is there left to do? Read! My Aunt Jo gave me my first real romance novel. It was titled Lord Margrave’s Deception. I remember it fondly. But I also learned I had a deep and abiding love of mysteries and anything paranormal. I started to write just that and would entertain my friends with stories featuring them as main characters.

 

 


 

Now, I live in a small town in WV where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach.

 

 


 

I love books, I love writing , and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.

Amazon Review Tour ~ The Perfect One ~ by ~ Cory Cyr

Title: The Perfect 1
Author: Cory Cyr
Genre: Urban Erotic Romance
Release Date: March 31, 2017 
Jensyn Parrish was one of the world’s most gorgeous supermodels, dubbed the “Perfect 10” for most of her career. Thirteen years ago, a horrific car accident left her face disfigured. Suffering the loss of her beauty, career, and self-worth, she seeks a life of quiet seclusion in Hawaii.


Lincoln Bass, a New York best-selling author and adrenaline junkie, has no idea what he could possibly have in common with his brother’s friend Jensyn. After suddenly being impaired with blindness at only twenty-five, his life is forever altered. Independent, headstrong, and ever the daredevil, Lincoln is stricken with the certainty that if he wants to continue writing, he needs help.

Two people damaged by circumstances of fate…

Disguising who she once was becomes a difficult task for Jensyn. Her only job is to help Lincoln finish his book. But boundaries are somehow obscured and fiction becomes their reality.

This genre is RIGHT up my alley! For some inexplicable reason, I like when the Hero or Heroine has some sort of disability and they have a physical therapist, assistant, helper that they fall for. This book was recommended to me because it fit the bill and this review tour came up at the same time this was recommended. It was fate!  
Jensyn is a former model who after an attack has a scar on her face that is MUCH bigger in her mind than in actuality. So much so that she’s closeted herself away so people can’t see her and what she feels is her “ugly scar”. Sadly, this is mostly in Jensyn’s head. Jensyn’s therapist asks her for a favor, for her to check on his brother who suffered an accident and is blind.  
Lincoln is a former daredevil who was blinded during an accident. Lincoln is only 25 but has basically shut himself off. Sound familiar? Jensyn recognizes traits and thoughts in Lincoln that she has had herself and is doing her best to help him (and herself) heal from their “disabilities”.  
This will definitely be a re-read for me. It was a great story and like I said, it was in a genre I love!
5 stars!

Amazon Review Tour ~ Biker’s Librarian ~ by ~ Shyla Colt

Title: Biker’s Librarian
Series: Lord’s of Mayhem
Author: Shyla Colt
Genre: MC Romance
Publisher: Hot Ink Press
Release Date: March 2, 2017

Recovered from an abusive relationship, Juliette Moore is ready to live life on her own terms. Successful, intelligent, and slightly timid, she makes a pact with her best friends to seize the day. She gets more than she bargained in the tall, dark, and dangerous biker Shooter.

Drawn to her purity and charm, Shooter, finds himself smitten before he knows what’s happening. With his claim firmly placed, he’s ready to go to war when she’s threatened by a madman from her past. Together they weather life’s storms and find common ground as they merge their two very different worlds.

review
Who doesn’t love the good, shy girl falling for the bad biker man? Except Shooter isn’t really a bad biker man. He’s a sweetheart who is struck by Juliette once he sees her. And Juliette is just as into him and ready to break her routine up a bit with Shooter. Each isn’t sure of each other because they are from such different backgrounds but I think the differences balance each other. And make them both want each other for what they bring to their life.

I’m definitely curious about the rest of the Mayhem boys. I sorta hope that Moose’s story is next just because he seemed to be more prevalent in this story. And there was a special point to say that Moose is a big guy but a teddy bear. I love those type!

5 stars!
Shyla Colt grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, but has lived a variety of different places thanks to her wanderlust, interesting careers, and marriage to a United States Marine. She’s always loved books and wrote her very first novel at the age of fifteen. She keeps a copy of her first submission letter on her desk for inspiration. 

After a lifetime of traveling, she settled down and knew her time had come to write. Diving into her new career like she does everything else, with enthusiasm, research and a lot of prayers, she had her first book published in June of 2011. As a full-time writer, stay at home mother, and wife, there’s never a dull moment in her household. 

She weaves her tales in spare moments and the evenings with a cup of coffee or tea at her side and the characters in her head for company. A self-professed rebel with a pen. Her goal is to diversify romance as she continues to genre hop, and offer up strong female characters.

 “I LOVE your writing and book two is even better than the first.” – Rambling from Beneath the Sheets
“Rough and Raw, this is absolutely the perfect title for this book. It was filled with raw emotion from the prologue.” – Reader Review
“If you like your heroes rough, and your journey to an HEA raw, then this is definitely a book for you!” – Author R.C Martin


red_review
Brentlee and Sniper’s story is just amazing.  They have both been through so much – although very different things – before they find their way back to each other.  Brentlee & Sniper were a fantastic couple when they were younger.  Their lives have led them through some very trying experiences but somehow they find themselves back to each other.
Rough & Raw is the second book in the series.  You don’t need to read book 1 (Kentlee & Fury’s story) – I hadn’t read it – but now that I read book 2, I want to read their story.  Each story is it’s own couple but there are recurring characters in each story.
I can’t wait for Dirty Johnny’s story.  He was quite the crack up!
5 stars!

Guarded hearts. 

Wounded pride. 

Devastating betrayal.

Broken souls. 

Complete opposites intent not to yield, determined not to feel, but incapable of stopping it. Until the past resurfaces with the intent to ruin everything. 

Is learning to love again worth the risk? After all, a life without love isn’t a life worth living.

Hot, sexy, funny, sarcastic, and a daddy???? Does it get any better? I’ve read every one of A.D.’s books, but Intent has become my favorite. -A.M. Madden, Bestselling Author

Intent was well paced, beautifully written, heartfelt, and wholly enthralling. A.D. Justice has truly outdone herself with this one! -Prisoners of Print Book Blog

This book was emotional and gripping right from the beginning all the way through to the end. – Amazon Reviewer

You feel every range of emotion you can think of in this book from anger, sadness, lust, rage, love, you name it and you will feel it. AD Justice does such a fantastic job of making the reader feel like they are apart of the story, you are invested in the characters’ journey. – Amazon Reviewer

LAYNE

The silky smooth feel of his tongue gliding across mine sends shivers down my spine. His intrinsic taste is every bit as intoxicating as that bottle of strawberry wine, except he’s much more addictive. When his calloused fingers glide across my cheek, a need greater than I’ve ever known consumes me and makes me want to beg for him to touch me everywhere.
I am safe and secure under the weight of his body, and his lips and tongue move with expert precision and determination. Even when I try to rush him and greedily take more, he won’t allow it. He keeps complete control, drawing out the pleasure, leaving me wanting—no, needing—more. My next breath is dependent upon his kiss, his touch, his taste. What I was intent would never happen again is happening right before me, but I can’t willfully stop this any more than I can willfully stop my heart from beating.
He shifts his weight and settles his hips between my legs. The sudden friction against my clit causes an intense moan to escape from my throat. His responding growl only amplifies the fire that is about to combust between us. His hips flex and his erection slides across me. My fingers curl into his shirt, my nails scrape across his skin, and my neck arches in response. Ace’s lips move down to my exposed neck as he kisses, licks, and nips at the erogenous area.
“You taste good everywhere,” he murmurs. “Your lips, your tongue, your neck. I can’t help but wonder what you taste like in other places.”
His hands find their way under my shirt, and he slowly pushes it up as he slides down. His fingers are sprawled out across my abdomen, heating my core from his mere touch. When the stubble from his faded beard scrapes across my stomach, my hands instinctively jerk to his head and my fingers glide through his light brown hair. He pulls my skin through his teeth, sucking it into his mouth, and then laving the area with his warm tongue.
“Mmm, the more I taste you, the better it gets,” he hums against my skin.
He lifts his eyes to look at me. Looking for permission? He has it, whatever he wants to do to me. Town gossip be damned. I don’t care what they think of me, how easy they think I am, or how jealous they are that he’s here with me. Not one of them has walked in my shoes, has felt what I’ve felt, or has been hurt in the way that I’ve been hurt—because none of them is me.
“Ace,” I beg with one word. A one-syllable, one-word plea.

review
I haven’t read A.D. Justice before but after reading Intent, I am SO glad I did!!  This book was fantastic!  The characters were real and easy to relate to, and I was just sucked in from page 1 – which means work was put off for the day.
Layne is in a staid relationship with her boyfriend Bobby of 7 years.  Until she catches him cheating with her best friend.  Thankfully, she dumps his cheating self right then – and not a moment too soon – but I won’t say why…
Layne is persuaded aka forced to go on a sabbatical to her boss’ cabin in Georgia to just get herself back together.  While in Georgia, she meets some great people including Ace and his adorable daughter River.  Who quickly convince Layne that she was meerly settling by being with Bobby.
Amazing story!  I can’t wait to read more of A.D. Justice’s books!  And I guarantee I will be!
5 stars!

A.D. Justice is the best selling author of the Steele Security Series (Wicked Games, Wicked Ties, and the upcoming Wicked Nights), the Crazy Series (Crazy Maybe, Crazy Baby), and the Dominic Powers series (Her Dom, Her Dom’s Lesson).
