SEEK (Delirious, #0.5)

When illusions come to life, how do you tell what’s real? 

My life ended when I came back from vacation. Death was at my doorstep. Everything ceased to exist. To protect myself, I pushed the memories away. All I remember is him: Sebastian Brand, my savior. I trust only him. I am obsessed with him. But all I know about him is his name. Stuck in this mental institution, I try not to think about the terrible memories that lurk deep inside me. Sebastian is the only one who can help me forget. I don’t care that they say he doesn't exist, I need Sebastian and I will find him, no matter the cost.  


SNARE (Delirious, #1)

His secrets will destroy her.

Taken. Humiliated. Used. With his smart mouth, dirty talking, and possessive behavior, Sebastian Brand has me hooked in the most shameless way. I’m obsessed with him. However, now that I’ve escaped the mental hospital, he seeks to control my every move. The overwhelming aloofness in his attitude and the darkness in his mind tells me there is more to this man than sheer dominance. Depravity is his playground and pain is a necessary evil. Keeping me away was his first instinct. Capturing me was his second. Claimed by a man with the exterior of an angel and the mind of a brute, I will do anything to unveil his secrets and face my own demons. A body in exchange for freedom. A heart in exchange for truth. Life is never a given. Only a certain death.

Spotlight: Beginning with Forever by Lan LLP

Beginning with Forever (Forever #1)

By Lan LLP

99c Sale

12/26 – 2/28

Beginning with Forever 

“Carson, I’m freely offering myself to you right now. Please,” I plead fearlessly. I’m shameless and not above begging for him to take my body. Who is this sex-craved woman anyways? 

“Sweetness, you’re making it very difficult for me to resist you, to control myself.” He lowers himself intimately close to graze his soft, moist lips on my forehead, bridge of my nose and then intensely over my lips. The urgency of his need for me is translated through his kisses. Biting down firmly on his lower lip, it appears that he’s forcing the strength of his will to remain tame. Our eye contact is broken when he seals his shut to blind the temptation lying underneath his body. His hands grip the sheets desperately, clawing and then fisting. I think this is his last hope of hanging onto his dignity. “Goodnight Lily, only offer your body to me when you believe it in your heart,” he murmurs and rolls off of me. Lying flat on his back, he attempts to steady his labored breathing. 

Love isn’t easy to forget even if you’re determined to never feel it again. It has a way of finding you when all hope is gone, resurfacing tender emotions you’ve buried deep in your core because the pain of acknowledging them is too much for you to handle. 

Carson Bradley, CEO of a powerful pharmaceutical corporation is rich beyond boundaries with a missing soul. His heart faded away fifteen years ago with the death of his first love. He strives every day for the sake of his cancer research because he’s determined to eradicate cancer forever. 

Lillian Ly is a humble, young medical student whose kind and generous heart is as vast as the universe. Being raised poor by a single parent; she matured quickly and respected the sacrifices her mother made for her. Lillian’s determination leads her down a stringent five-year path with no room for love. 

When their paths cross at an unlikely place thousands of miles away from home, they both realize that fate has brought them together, and Carson will never let anything or anyone tear them apart. He knows how desolate life is without love and refuses to return to that dark place ever again. 

Lillian enters Carson’s world with the purest intention of loving him with all her heart, but discovers that his volatile world will alter her uncomplicated life indefinitely. Regardless of what obstacles are thrown in their path, Lillian and Carson will endure them all to hold onto their forever from the beginning to the end. 

Over a year ago, I decided to pick up a pen and jotted down the first sentence of my vivid imagination. Those initial words were the seeds that grew into my romance book, “Beginning with Forever.” With all my heart, I wrote, rewrote, edited, re-edited and now, I’m finally ready to share it with all of you. My one and only aspiration for this book is to have readers embrace my story and characters with their heart. If I can make someone laugh till their gut hurts, hate the villain with vengeance, cry till their eyes dry out, fall in love all over again, and drool over the hero or feel any other emotions, than I’ve succeeded my goal.

I’m the sappiest person in the world when it comes to romance. I believe in love at first sight, Prince Charming or in my book, Mr. Hot Billionaire, and happy endings. In my heart, every women deserves all three, and they will when they lose themselves in my books. Your fantasy can become a reality with just the flip of a page, so come join me.

Series Book Review: Escaping series by Elizabeth Lee

Escaping Me - Book 1



 All she wanted to do was forget. Forget the memory of walking in on her boyfriend in the middle of, well, another girl. Forget how she had her entire life planned out. And, forget about being perfect all the time. 

Unfortunately, she was Whitney Vandaveer and despite the fact that she moved to the middle of nowhere – she couldn't.

He always knew he would never be more than nothing. No job, no money, no future. Cole Pritchett had accepted the fact that he would always be the screw up and he was okay with it. Until he met her.

Here's the thing they quickly found out – sometimes we all need a little help escaping who we think we are


Finding You- Book 2

Being the wild child has worked for Mallory Vandaveer for most of her life. She’s the good time girl, up for anything–and everyone in her small town knows it. But when her sister came home after years of being away, long hidden secrets came out. Turns out, Mallory isn’t who she thought she was. And now everything starts to feel like a lie. In order to figure out who she is she’ll have to set out on a journey to find the one man who holds the answers. 

Everett Boone is in hiding. Hiding from his past and the press and the demands of a career he put on hold after tragedy struck. When a young woman with secrets of her own blows into town and rents the apartment next to his, he’ll have to face the past he was trying to escape in order to understand his feelings for her. 

 They’ll both have to dig deep inside themselves to discover whether or not they’re capable of being enough for one another. Finding the person you’re meant to love isn’t the problem. Sometimes the hardest person to find is yourself.  

My Rating:


Favorite Quotes:

Book 1 Escaping Me: 

“This girl can kiss, and in this moment, it is all I want to do.  It is like I am committing a sin and receiving a miracle all at the same time.”

“I swear that boy’s chapstick is laced with whiskey – if his mouth is even close to mine I lose the ability to think straight.” 

“I was an anxious as a one-eyed cat watching two rat holes.”

 “When I’m with you, I don’t feel like I have to impress anyone or say he right thing.  I just get to be the person I want to be.”    

Book 2 Finding You: 

“It’s surreal when things happen that change the course of your life.  The unexpected events that you couldn’t predict even if you tried.  The path you thought you’d be on is altered, and even if you wished you could, you can’t go back.  You can’t go back to the person you were before or become the person you thought you’d be.  It’s all just different.” 

“My father wasn’t my father, and my biological dad and I had never met.  I was one tube top away from a trashy daytime talk show appearance.”  

My Review:

This series consists of first and second Elizabeth Lee reads, and I will readily confess to being hopelessly addicted.  I love her style.  Her books are captivating and easy to follow.  Her characters are interesting, sassy, smart, relatable, and funny.  I enjoy the banter, steamy love screens, and chemistry, even though I may be more than a bit long in the tooth to be reading New Adult love stories… I am greedy and wanting to read all her works if they are as well written and entertaining as the two in this series.

About the Author:

6542627Elizabeth Lee 

Born and raised in the middle of a Midwestern cornfield (not literally, that would be weird), I’ve spent my entire life imagining stories. Stories where the right guy always gets the right girl, first kisses are as magical as they are on the big screen and anything is completely possible if you believe. 

 Although this journey began years ago, it recently took on a whole new life. After years of devouring hundreds of Romance, YA and New Adult novels, I had an epiphany... I should write a book. And I did it! If I’m not reading, writing, enjoying drinks with my amazing group of girlfriends or chasing around a sarcastically funny kid, I’m probably watching television shows that were created for teenagers, while my husband teases that I’m too old to watch them.

Book Review: Carnal Persuasion by Ava Manello and KT Fisher

Book: Carnal Persuasion
Series: Severed MC #4
Author: KT Fisher & Ava Manello
Genre: MC
Cover Design: Margreet Asselbergs

Cover Photographer: Richard Hunter of RIHUPHOTO


 photo CarnalPersuasion_zps5baab297.jpg

The fourth instalment in the Severed MC series finds Cowboy wrestling with his demons. Can he go on, or is he too broken after everything he's endured?

Meanwhile the citizens of Severed are caught up in a war, and it's down to Severed MC to try and save them.

This book is going to blow your mind.

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

“I’ve never been so grateful to see the end of my shift.  I’ve spent far too much of it thinking about Cowboy and what I’d like to do to him.  I hadn’t realized I was capable of such impure thoughts.  I like it.”

“Cowboy is standing there looking lost.  He’s also a little green around the gills truth be told.  ‘Go fetch some towels and hot water.’  I request.  I’ve no idea if we’ll need them or not, but it’s what they always say in the movies.”

My Review:

Being new to this series I needed to read the previous 3 installments, meaning that this review required 962 pages of reading… and worth every word.  I spent the weekend with this odd assortment of characters and found them quite entertaining.  I loved seeing the tender and loving sides to the otherwise badass bikers being exposed.  I was taught to fear this subculture as a child, and even as an adult, I had never stopped to think of the human element underneath the leather and denim until stumbling upon this genre of books in recent months.  I have enjoyed this series and found them suspenseful, sexy, and absorbing.  I cared for most of the characters and wanted them all to get their HEA – although we lost some beloved members along the way.   I am relatively new to this genre as well as these authors, but plan and hope to read more of them in the future.

Passionate reader, blogger, publisher, and author. I love nothing more than helping other Indie authors publish their books be that reviewing, beta reading, formatting or proofreading,

I love erotic suspense that's well written and engages the reader, and I love promoting the heck out of it over on my book blog.
