REVIEW

For the purpose of this review I am reviewing the book in one review. There are multiples of small different stories, which cover most of the legends and genre. The one thing that made easy reading was all the stories are bite size chunks. The different authors appear to get right into our physic, and play on all the legends and fears we keep to ourselves.
The warning I will give is if you are looking for happy endings you don’t get many, in a few you may just survive. This is geared more towards young adults as they are the stars of the stories. I have to say I enjoyed reading this book even if it gave me the creeps at various times and venues

REVIEW TOUR: # 1 PLAYER By USA Today Bestselling Author T. GEPHART

 

BLURB




Lila Callan had an unconventional upbringing—unavoidable when your mother owns a brothel. But while she’d inherited some of her parents’ ‘wacky and offbeat’, she was also strong, independent and incredibly intelligent. The fact she was tall, beautiful and blond was a bonus she never really cared to exploit. She wasn’t uptight; it’s just that long term was more her thing, with zero interest in one-night stands.

Until she met Ryan York and then she isn’t so sure.

Blindingly good looking.
Insane body.
Infectious sense of humor.
And charm for days.
Ryan York was movie star material.
Except that he wasn’t.

He’d turned his back on the idea of hitting the big time, more content with being Eric Larsson’s—his best friend who was a movie star—right-hand man. Despite his laid-back persona, he was a guy who could get stuff done. And women lined up to be done by Ryan. He did not have a problem with that. Not. At. All.

Except his magical panty dropping powers didn’t seem to extend to the lovely Lila. And she wasn’t sure if she was going to teach the #1 player a new game, or find one herself.

One way or another, they were both getting naked.

My Review

 This is a really fun enjoyable read, and I thought Ryan and Lila were cute together. Even though we met the pair in #1 Crush and the couple Eric and Tia from #1 Crush do appear in this book, but it can read as a standalone.
When they first met was instant attraction both deciding to enjoy a sexual relationship while Lila stays in LA for work and while living with Tia and Eric.
This is very hot sexy read, with the chemistry between the two off the charts. They grew close very quickly, and you could feel the love blossom between them.
If you enjoy a great romance where you can see love growing between the couple. I fell for Ryan myself so was very jealous of all the attention Lila received from him.
This is a funny enjoyable read from T. Gephart.
I received an ARC for this Book in exchange for an honest review

 

About T. Gephart

 

T Gephart is an indie author from Melbourne, Australia.


T’s approach to life has been somewhat unconventional. Rather than going to University, she jumped on a plane to Los Angeles, USA in search of adventure. While this first trip left her somewhat underwhelmed and largely depleted of funds it fueled her appetite for travel and life experience.


With a rather eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history, T struggled to find her niche in the world.


While on a subsequent trip the United States in 1999, T met and married her husband. Their whirlwind courtship and interesting impromptu convenience store wedding set the tone for their life together, which is anything but ordinary. They have lived in Louisiana, Guam and Australia and have travelled extensively throughout the US. T has two beautiful young children and one four legged child, Woodley the wonder dog.


An avid reader, T became increasingly frustrated by the lack of strong female characters in the books she was reading. She wanted to read about a woman she could identify with, someone strong, independent and confident who didn’t lack femininity. Out of this need, she decided to pen her first book, A Twist of Fate. She enjoyed the process so much that when it was over she couldn’t let it go.
T loves to travel, laugh and surround herself with colourful characters. This inevitably spills into her writing and makes for an interesting journey – she is well and truly enjoying the ride!
Based on her life experiences, T has plenty of material for her books and has a wealth of ideas to keep you all enthralled.

My name is Cassidy Porter…

My father, Paul Isaac Porter, was executed twenty years ago for the brutal murder of twelve innocent girls.

Though I was only eight-years-old at the time, I am aware – every day of my life – that I am his child, his only son.

To protect the world from the poison in my veins, I live a quiet life, off the grid, away from humanity.

I promised myself, and my mother, not to infect innocent lives with the darkness that swirls within me, waiting to make itself known.

It’s a promise I would have kept…if Brynn Cadogan hadn’t stumbled into my life.

Now I exist between heaven and hell: falling for a woman who wants to love me, while all along reminding myself that I must remain…

Unloved.

**NOTE: This book is intended for readers 18+**

UNLOVED TEASER 1

REVIEW

What a heartbreaking, but beautiful love story this book is. This is the story of Brynn whose fiancee was shot a pop concert two years before. Out of desperation Brynn decides to take his mobile phone to his favourite mountain and bury his phone and say a real goodbye.
We have Cassidy whose father had been sent to prison for rape and murder. He lives of the grid in his grandfather’s house where he has lived since his father’s arrest. His mother brought him with her when he was still a child. He has lived on his own for years, his promised his mother he would never hurt anyone so he kept to his self.
One day to feel part of the human race his walks up the mountain out of everyone’s sight. Until he hears screaming and comes upon this creep stabbing a woman he throws the man of her and he sees Brynn. He takes her home and treats her stab wounds and looks after her. They can’t help falling in love. Cassidy knows nothing can be permanent. You can help but fall in love with Cassidy and deep down you know he won’t hurt Brynn.
This has dark themes, but you can feel the emotion between them. Cassidy knows he can’t keep her because of what runs in his veins and the promise he made to mother and grandfather. Katy always knows how to pull me into a story and plays on my emotions like a piano. There is always plenty of drama and angst before we get the hea. This is a standalone with no cliffhangers. This story makes you think about all the victims of violent crime.
If you like to read something different, then you would love this. I read this in one seating, but remained on my mind much longer.

#Review Blitz# BARE YOURSELF by Alex Grayson

BAREYOURSELF_6

BARE YOURSELF by Alex Grayson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Review Blitz: June 2, 2017

BAREYOURSELF_2

BLURB

My name is Tegan Zander, and I like to… bare myself. Yes, you read that right. It’s not just me I want everyone to see, but also the lucky person I’m with at the moment. No, I don’t go around whipping out my junk and pulling up skirts to flash all the Joe Blows around. Give me some credit; I’m a bit more discreet than that. Barely. No, I like to be watched while fucking. I like knowing someone else is in the room, getting off on what my partner and I are doing. This is my sexual vice, and I fucking love it.

What I don’t do is relationships. I have too much fun in my bachelor life. I don’t want to be tied down to one woman when there are still so many out there to explore.

Willow Bennett was just a woman I helped on the side of the road. Nothing more, nothing less, even if her hot little body demanded attention from mine. I did my good deed, kissed those sweet lips, ground my jean-covered length against her softness, and left, expecting to never see her again.

But then, there she was, in her short skirt, tank top, and flip-flops, looking sexy as hell. She didn’t know it yet, but she was my next plaything. I was going to expose her along with me. I was going to show her just how good it could be if she lost her inhibitions and let me put her on display.

I don’t do relationships, but with this girl, I just might… expose my heart to her.

*Although this is Book 2 of the Consumed Series, BARE YOURSELF may be read as a standalone!*

**This book is intended for mature audiences ages 18+!**

REVIEW

 

This is Tegan’s story. He’s the exhibitionist. He likes people to watch him having sex. He likes to see them take their pleasure watching him getting his.

Tegan meets Willow on the side of the road when her car has a flat tyre. She leaves him with a kiss and she stays in his mind.

Circumstances bring them to cross paths again and neither of them can deny the attraction. Tegan gets Willow to discover her own dirty side and once he discovers this there’s no stopping his feelings.

As I hadn’t read book one it didn’t stop me reading this as a standalone. This is group of friends who met at sex addiction clinic, and as a group they try to help each other cope.

Willow is running from her own problems and has come to Atlanta to stay with friends until she finds a job and place to live. Very soon Willow and Tegan are falling for each other. I found Tegan very likable and Willow is a sweetheart.

There are reasons for Tegan’s sex addiction which is kinda harrowing and heartbreaking. I just loved him!!  The way he tries to help friends with their addictions you knew he’s deeper than he appears. He’s just a really good guy, especially the way he cares for Willow.

Willow was highly likeable. She’s funny and brave and I loved how she challenged Tegan on every level!

As you can imagine the loving scenes were off the charts!! Very imaginative kept me glued to my kindle, which it is still steaming.

The story flowed well and kept me all the way through, storyline isn’t just about the addiction there’s so much more to it. The things with her brother kinda broke my heart in places. So don’t think it’s just a sex book its way more than that.

#BLOG TOUR + Review# Faking It with DAMIAN = DJ Hunnam


Faking It with Damian
DJ Hunnam
Publication date: January 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, Erotica, Romance

I don’t do relationships… especially not with egotistical jerks like my new boss, Damian Wood. The man is vile, arrogant, condescending… and scorching hot. If he weren’t my boss and a grade-A a*&hole, I would turn on my world-famous charm and seduce the pants right off the man. But giving in to his undeniable allure might just cost me my job. Or worse yet, my heart.

I’m a prick…and Janice Holder’s new boss. Which means I should stay away, but I’ve never claimed to be a nice guy. If I don’t get my twisted fascination under control, it will only be a matter of time before I bend her over my desk and screw her. Hard. The way I’ve imagined no fewer than a thousand times since we met. I’m playing with fire and neither of us can afford to get burned, but landing in hot water might just be worth the risk.

Faking It is a full-length, standalone office romance. It contains steamy scenes with a ton of heat and strong language intended for mature audiences.

Goodreads / Amazon

REVIEW

 

I absolutely fell in love with Damian, I thought he was great and I want to keep him. This story is set in the workplace where the sparks were flying between Damian and Janice.

 

The only thing I couldn’t get over is Janice being so cold with him, I know it warmed up, but I couldn’t warm up to her character. It was maybe because I want her man.

 

I really enjoyed this really sexy romance, there was plenty of other things going on with Damian and Janice that kept me reading straight through in one seating. If you love a hot romance with plenty to get your teeth into this is the book for you.

Review

 

Safe Bet was like stepping back in time with Drew and Fable, and a wonderful family union all in one story.

Sydney was a mixed up teenager, who comes from an entitled rich background who thought College and work were for other people until her parents disowned her.

I loved Wade, he was a great character. Very serious about his career and making enough money to make sure his mother can retire. Meeting Sydney gave him a chance to still be a young with someone he really likes.

Wade needs someone just for him, and Sydney learns she can be liked for herself.

My one complaint it finished too soon. I really enjoyed this book, it was easy to read. Sydney and Wade were a very likable pair. As always Monica Murphy hits the right note with regards to her New adult books. It was wonderful to catch up with Drew and Fable. I remember reading One Week Girlfriend and being blown away, nothing has changed. I haven’t read The Rules Series, but I think I will now. I would say you could pick the book up and read as a standalone, and still enjoy the read. This is a lovable romance between to likable characters, and sometimes it’s nice to read a feel good book.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

NORMAL (Book 1)

It’s the kind of situation most people would dread. Starting at a new high school, in the middle of my senior year, in a new town, in a new state. I know no one. No one knows me. That’s what I’m counting on.

A year ago, Aurora “Rory” Pine was just a normal teenage girl – just as sweet and naive as the fairy tale princess she was named after.

But this isn’t a year ago.

Rory is broken, and suffering from a new debilitating anxiety disorder, wrought with precarious triggers, she moves across the country to escape the source of her troubles. Her plan is anonymity, but that’s easier said than achieved for the new girl having a panic episode outside of calculus. The worst part? There’s a witness – and a gorgeous one at that.

Sam is a walking trigger for Rory. Incredibly handsome, built like the star athlete he obviously is, and undoubtedly popular, Sam outwardly represents everything Rory despises about high school. But as the fates keep throwing them together, a connection sparks that neither ever expected, and certainly can’t ignore.

But Sam has issues too, and Rory’s past won’t just stay in the damned past. When friendship evolves into something deeper, can a girl utterly destroyed by the worst kind of betrayal and a boy battling demons of his own ever have a normal relationship? Is that even what they want? Find out in NORMAL, a gritty story of trust and abuse, heartbreak and salvation, and if they’re lucky – love. This is not a flowery romance – not for the faint of heart.

teaser-normal

ReCAP (Book 1.5)

Rory and Sam fell in love in NORMAL, and we all fell in love right along with them. Now see it all unfold through Sam’s eyes, and learn just how the new girl with anxiety issues stole the heart of the gorgeous heartthrob, and turned his world upside down.

You already heard the story. The one of how Rory and I fell in love, supposedly, even if she couldn’t handle it in the end. You know how it all went.

Or you think you do.

You only know her side. But I have my own point of view, and even Rory couldn’t know my thoughts in those few months it took for her to go from being a stranger to my whole entire world.

Every moment is permanently ingrained in my memory. In my goddamned soul. From the moment I stumbled upon the girl panicking outside of calculus – the one with the tight little body, the angelic face, and the fierce attitude – to the night she abandoned me in Miami. It was the sum of those moments that changed me irrevocably.

Our story isn’t over. I won’t let it be. But this, this is what happened so far, the way I saw it.

I’m Cap. Or Sam, to Rory. And this is my story.

teaser-okay

OKAY (Book 2)

After the horrors she’s survived over the past year, Rory never expected to find the one thing she certainly wasn’t looking for – love. But after the painful realization that her past has left her a dangerous liability to the person she cares for the most, she finally understands that for her and Sam, love means letting go.

Can two people hopelessly in love with one another ever revert back into just friends? Neither Rory nor Sam know for sure. But the one thing they do know – it’s the only choice they have.

As Rory recovers from a devastating assault, Sam will do anything to make sure it never happens again. But how far will he go to keep her safe? Their choices will change everything, and they will either bring them back together, or destroy them irrevocably.

Review

SOMETHING MORE BOX SET

 

This review is for all 3 stories, as it was hard to put it down. The first story Normal was the harrowing account through Rory’s eyes. Where the past is interspersed and unfolding along with the present. Seeing how her relationship with Robin unfolds, seen through her eyes it is written really well, even if to some the self-blame may be overtop, I think it captured the manipulations by others very well . We also see her relationship with Sam develop, and it was lovely to see. We then have Recap, where we see everything through Sam’s eyes, and follows meeting Rory and everything up to the end of Normal. This gave us another perspective, and we saw Rory through different eyes.

The third story Normal was told from a dual perspective, Rory and Sam. We also see all the repercussions from the Miami trip. It was wonderful to see Rory growing stronger and more of a normal teenage girl, by the end of this book. This was a gripping account the rape and sexual abuse of a teenage girl, and how it affected all aspects of her life. Never the less it is a story of hope and happiness. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
