Luke Jackson. With his thick southern drawl and seductive charm, Luke is the country boy everyone adores. He has his future mapped out, but his plans with Olivia are suddenly derailed when she makes a decision that blindsides him, changing the path they both envisioned. As Luke struggles to keep everything in check during a difficult time in his life, he must put his trust in the one person who broke it to begin with. The last time they saw each other, Olivia busted his heart wide open, turning him into the man he is today. When Olivia returns to her roots, just like Luke said she would, he is shocked for more reasons than one. Nine years have passed since they've seen each other, and when their roads collide unexpectedly, Luke can only push his worry and misgivings away for so long. Things are different now—they are strangers—and the rope that once bound Olivia's heart to South Fork, Georgia is pulling her back in, forcing her to remember how it used to be all those years ago.


My Review
**** This is a definite 5 star read ****

2 words

Luke Jackson

This boy is all kinds of swoonaliousness.

If you are looking for something HOT, SEXY, and down right romantic. Then this is the book you want to add to your TBR list. Make sure you have a full day to read it because you are not going to want to put it down. You will fall in love with Luke and Olivia's story from the start. I'm not kidding it will suck you in and won't let go. (book hangover for day's)
Not only is there Luke but you will also meet Nate and that boy has it going on too. Lucia couldn't just give us one hot and sexy southern boy she gave us 2. You don't want to love Nate but you can't help not to.
I also love Olivia she is not like the other girls we meet in books. She is strong willed, doesn't play games and she drinks whiskey. I think I may have a girl crush.
Lucia did a great job in writing this book. It has the right amount of romance and sexiness all rolled up into one.I have had the pleasure of reading some amazing new authors for review purposes such as Silla Webb, Amy Marie and Elle Raven to name a few and Lucia has literally blown me away with this book. I have added her to my favs and am looking forward to what else she has in store for us.

“Nate,” she groaned with a sigh. “There can’t be anymore dates between us. I’m sorry, but this is the one and only date. I had a great time tonight, but this is it.”
“How about you let me decide that,” he said in all seriousness.
“No. We can’t. As much as I enjoyed myself tonight, this is it. No more. Don’t you see the lines we’re crossing?”
Olivia’s forehead wrinkled with concern. How was it that he didn’t have a drop of worry? Was he only thinking about himself? 
“I do see that,” he said moving in closely, “but I don’t give a fuck about any imaginary lines, Olivia. I want you, and I’m pretty sure you want me too. So what’s the problem here? And don’t give me that patient/doctor shit. I told you I would switch doctors. What’s your problem? You can’t deny the chemistry between us. It’s there. It’s pulling at us both and you know it. I can read your eyes and see it. It’s been there since the day we met. Don’t deny it.”
Olivia glanced around the parking lot. Deep down she wasn’t sure if she was ready to put herself on the line again, but by the deep undertone he used, she knew Nate was fuming. 
“I don’t have a problem with us. What I do have a problem with is you finding a new doctor. Dr. Thatcher is the best.”
“I understand,” he answered staring down at her, “but you diagnosed my problem and it seems like an easy one to fix at that. So I could switch doctors with no issue. Nate-3-, Livy, still 0. Go ahead. Give me another reason, Liv, and that will put me at 4 points and you 0, because you know I’ll win that one too.” He formed his fingers into a ‘0’ as he said it with a know-it-all-defensive-fucking-try-me attitude.
Shit. She was all out of reasons, not that she had many to begin with. She was holding back. Her one gripe was the fact that she was his doctor and he just blew that argument out of the water. 
Olivia didn’t want to get hurt and feared she would. It was a gut feeling she didn’t want to ignore. She was afraid to be around Nate. He managed to knock down some of her walls, expose her layers so early on and she wasn’t used to it. No one other than Luke had done that to her. She knew she’d fall hard for him, but not until she was ready to on her terms. When the time came she would let go and love again.
“Stop,” he ordered.
“Stop what?”
“Stop thinking so hard,” he demanded with a drawl. “I can see it spinning in your pretty brown eyes.” He was just an inch away from her now and breathing down on her. 
“I see what you’re doing, finding ways to say no,” he whispered. “You’re so easy to read, Liv. I know you already in this little amount of time. I paid attention to you, your body. Your incredibly sexy body
that I want so, so fucking bad…” Nate trailed off, growling under his breath as he slid an arm around her lower back and pulled her up against him. 
“Stop looking for an out,” Nate insisted.
“Nathaniel,” she whispered. “I can’t.”
“Says who? You? You’re the one fighting me on it right now, Liv. Don’t tell me you don’t feel it between us. Just let go and give us a damn try.”


Lucia currently resides in South Florida with her brainy husband and wild kids who drive her up a wall. There's never a dull moment in her hectic world, but Lucia wouldn't change a thing. Luckily she has a strong man to stand by her side and combat the craziness with her. YOU'LL THINK OF ME is not her first book, but it's the first one she's completed and likes. The others will come at a later date.

Izzy Gallo has never been described as a member of the weaker sex. She’s a woman who doesn't

                                                         take shit from anyone.

Growing up with four older overprotective brothers has hardened her, making her a force to be

                                                              reckoned with.

Against the wishes of her two brothers, Joe and Mike, Izzy takes a weekend trip to Bike Week in

      Daytona, turning her world upside down. Over her head, in a world she doesn’t understand,

                                           there’s only one man who can save her.

James Caldo has dedicated his life to protect and serve as a member of the DEA. He’s cocky, 

       overbearing, and doesn’t take no for an answer – the Gallo men have nothing on him.

                       When their paths cross, James makes Izzy question everything she

                            believes about completely surrendering to the opposite sex.

Does James have what it takes to overpower the headstrong Izzy, capturing her heart forever?

Resist Me Excerpt:
Me: Lying through your teeth, doll. You’d be slamming yourself against my cock, taking all I had to give.
Sexy Fugitive: STOP.
My dick throbbed, aching for release. My balls had to be blue with the way they felt. Bastards may burst at any moment. I needed inside Izzy and I didn’t want to wait. I knew that if I jerked off, it wouldn’t fucking help. My hand didn’t compare to her milking the life out of my dick.
Me: Panties soaked?
Sexy Fugitive: I didn’t wear any today. :)
She didn’t understand how her trying to shut me the hell up was a total cocktease. I loved it. I could go out and find some nameless woman who would lay herself out and offer her pussy to me to relieve the ache deep in my balls. I didn’t want that. I only wanted her. After having a few tastes, I was hooked. No one else would ever compare.
Sexy Fugitive: I’m almost dripping thinking of you jamming your hard, long cock inside me.
She was the devil.

Control Me by Elle Raven

TITLE: Control Me AUTHOR:  Elle Raven
SERIES: Barossa Series – Book #1 
RELEASE DATE: August 4th, 2014 HOST By: Book Empire Promotions
Goodreads Link: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22037068-control-me

He knows what he wants.
He wants her.
Only on his terms.

To save her failing family empire, the stunning yet feisty heiress Jada Sinclair must find a way to keep the Sinclair Winery in the family. She is barely keeping things afloat due to her father's bad business decisions. The only person who can help her family is the multi-billionaire tycoon Max Brunetti. Can she trust him, or will she be selling her soul to the devil himself?

Ruthless and powerful, Max Brunetti wants to take over the Sinclair Vineyard to expand his own family corporation, and he will do everything in his power to get it. In order to gain the vineyard, he needs to make the Sinclair family an offer they cannot refuse. And he knows exactly what he wants in return.

*The Barossa Valley is one of Australia's oldest wine regions. Located in South Australia, the Barossa Valley is about 56 km northeast of the city of Adelaide.

He didn’t answer me. He only stared at me, his eyes squinting.
“I’m not joking, Jada; I’ve had enough of your crap. I want you to take off those white, skimpy shorts and show me that ass now.” “No. Fucking. Way.” I ran to the barn door, pulled it wide open and walked away towards the main house. I noticed as I bypassed the kitchen that Max was following me. I did not want to deal with him right now; my blood was boiling. I took the stairs two at a time, but I could feel he was catching up to me.

Shit. My heart nearly beat out of my chest. Adrenaline soared through my body, and I was panting.

As I opened the door to my old bedroom, I felt a strong set of arms circle my waist. I screamed, but he didn’t care; he lifted me off my feet and threw me on the bed not caring how I landed.


     If  I had to leave a one sentence review for this book it would say "This book was HOT, SEXY, & one of my fav reads this year."
     Elle Raven has a hit with this book. If I could rate it more then 5 stars on any book site I would. I have very few books that have made me feel this way.
     This book will have you hooked from the Prologue. Literally that's all it took for me to want to plant my ass in bed and read all day and read.
     Max is one hot Alpha Male and the way his relationship with Jada transpires is not traditional in any manner but works for them and this story. I love that there was no beating around the bush with drawn out scenes to get you to were you needed to be. Elle did an amazing job with telling this story. It was the right amount of suspense, angst, sex, and romance. It is very rare to find a book that has everything you can ask for out of it and all in one place.
      I also love that Elle was not afraid to write about the sex in this book. I just loved the way all the scenes where written. They were SEXY as hell. ( I may have to have my hubs read a few. LOL!)
     But seriously you will regret not picking up this book so go one click it today and start reading a book that is sure to give you the best book hangover you have ever had. I am still recovering.

Cover Reveal As The Dawn Breaks by Erin Noelle

Title: As Dawn Breaks
Series: Dusk Til Dawn #2
Authors: Erin Noelle
Release Date: 9/16/2014
Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22027892-as-the-dawn-breaks?ac=1

"I've flown halfway across the globe to watch the love of my life marry the love of hers."

He never intended on returning home..
Never second-guessed the life he'd chosen...

Never planned on meeting someone that would make him want more...

But everything can change As the Dawn Breaks.

Seven hundred and seventy one long days.
Seven hundred and seventy one lonely nights.
Seven hundred and seventy one sunrises to remind me of the one that changed everything. 

 A little after five o' clock, I awake from yet another night of restless sleep; no longer needing an alarm, my body now a well-trained machine. Shuffling my feet to the compact kitchen in my apartment, I throw frozen bananas, strawberries, and pineapple into the blender with some orange juice and a scoop of yogurt and flip the switch to 'high.' Thirty seconds later, my frothy fruit shake is ready, the healthy alternative to what used to be a couple cups of black coffee. My stomach thanks me daily.
 I grab my glass and stroll through the living room to the patio area - my morning sanctuary. Settling in my chair, I take a few minutes to drink in the view. The beach is still empty, as are the neighboring patios, and only the sound of waves crashing against the shore can be heard. The sliver of a moon still hangs high in the sky, but very soon, it's faint light will be overpowered and concealed by the intense brightness of the sun. 
 As if she heard my thoughts, the fiery temptress lifts her head up over the horizon, a burst of bright colors shooting up announces her arrival. I slowly sip my refreshing breakfast, my stare glued to the impressive vista, as the memories come rolling in with the surf. Every day, without fail, I torture myself for these few minutes,
allowing my mind to reminisce about the time I spent with Trystan - the time when I realized I wanted more from life than the one I was living. I wanted to love and to be loved, unconditionally; I wanted someone - the same someone - to wake up to every morning and to go to bed with each night; and I wanted a family to protect, support, and experience life with. 
 But then I came home and remembered all the reasons why I couldn't have those things. I am a murderer. I killed a man in cold blood. And though my intentions for the act were honorable - at least in my mind - my life in exile is my punishment, void of any of the things she made me realize I truly want.
 Going back for her has never been an option. I can't live in the States, and I can't ask someone I knew for two days to move to the other side of the world, especially now that she has a child. I'd give damn near anything for a chance to make it work, but with both of our situations, it just isn't feasible, even though I still try to help from afar.
 I'm left with the visions of long blonde hair whipping in the breeze, the faint scent of coconut and lime swirling in my nose, the branding of bright emerald eyes onto my soul, and... sunrises. Inevitably, the dawn breaks each and every day, and inescapably, so does my heart. 
 The last of my drink slides down the back of my throat and I stand up, ready to face yet another day. Alone. Counting the hours until the next sunrise.
Seven hundred and seventy two.

Cover Reveal Bound In Blue by Jessica Ingro

Title: Bound in Blue (Love Square #3)
Author: Jessica Ingro
Tentative Release Date: September 2014 Cover Designer: Cover It! Designs

Bound in Blue Goodreads link: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18625990-bound-in-blue 

Strong ties aren't easily broken...

First loves have the ability to fill us with hope and then shatter us when they end. Some people can pick up the pieces and move on. Others simply learn how to exist as a fragment of the person that they used to be.

Shane “Mack” MacAllister is one of the ones simply existing. His wife Ella died at a young age, leaving him alone and broken. Shane knew he’d never be able to give himself to another, believing there was nothing left to give. That is until a young, feisty doctor blazed into his life and made him rethink letting someone into what’s left of his tattered heart.

Dr. Megan Huntley has devoted her life to taking care of others, ever since her twin sister was brutally murdered. She might not have been able to save her sister, but she has made it her mission to help other victims. Long hours in the Emergency Room and volunteer work at the Rape Crisis Center leave little time for relationships. When Megan meets the rugged and handsome Shane MacAllister, she decides to throw caution to the wind and take the police detective for a ride. Too bad she can’t get him out of her head… or her life.

Will Shane and Megan be bound together by true love? Or will past loves and tragedy tear them apart?

**Bound in Blue can be read as a standalone**

Slightly Steamy Excerpt:
**Disclaimer: This content is unedited and subject to change**
Copyright © Jessica Ingro

When the engine on my Harley stopped purring, I put the stand down and took off my helmet. Staring at Megan’s brownstone I wondered what the fuck I was doing there. It had been hours since I left the station and I successfully talked myself out of seeing her numerous times. There was no talking myself out of it now.

Something inside me needed to see her. Maybe it was hearing John say her sister’s death ate at her every day; knowing that I had a kindred spirit in her. Maybe it was the urge to bury myself inside her tight, wet heat and forget everything except how she made me feel. Maybe it was the way her eyelids
fluttered when she came down from an orgasm. Or maybe it was the way her touch soothed me and made me ache for more than just the occasional fuck. 

Whatever it was, it had me walking up to her front door and hoping she wouldn’t ask too many questions. I wasn’t ready to have to dig deep and find the answers to those questions.

After the second knock, she opened the door. Her face was makeup free, her hair falling across her shoulders and past her breasts. She had on a skimpy yellow tank top and short white shorts. Her tanned legs looked soft and smooth and in that moment I wanted nothing more than to have them wrapped around my back.

“Mack?” She asked with a mixture of concern and surprise in her voice. 

Instead of answering her, I put my hands on either side of her face and kissed her. My tongue touched her lips and she immediately opened for me. She tasted even better than I remembered.

Still kissing her, I walked forward forcing her to walk back into the house. When we got to the stairs, I swept her up in my arms and hoofed it up to her bedroom on the third floor, only breaking the seal of our lips when necessary. 

Once in her room, I set Megan on the bed and used the weight of my body to push her down on her back. Covering her with my body, my hands moved with purpose over her skin. One hand cupped her breast, while the other groped her ass. She moaned and pressed her breast further into my palm. Her beaded nipple was begging for attention.

Fuck, but I needed her.

Not wanting to waste any more time, I made quick work of undressing us both. Once she was laid out before me, I fought back a groan at how fucking beautiful she was. And so damn perfect. 

She looked up at me with those beautiful brown eyes, submissively waiting for me to direct how things would go. That damn vulnerability and trust was my undoing. I lost all composure, positioned and buried myself to the hilt. Her arms and legs wrapped around my body, tightly holding me to her as I pumped in and out. 

My eyes fought rolling back into my head with how damn good she felt. That’s when I realized I didn’t wrap my dick.

Slowing my thrusts—because shit it felt too good to stop—I asked her, “You on the pill, buttercup?”

Her eyes blinked, a haze of lust and need clouding them. “What?” She asked breathlessly.

“I asked if you’re on the pill. I’m inside you bareback, baby. Is that okay?”

“Oh,” she murmured. “We’re covered. Now can you go faster?”

I chuckled, but quickly obliged her. It wasn’t long before she was moaning and I could feel her muscles contracting right before she came.

“Mack,” she cried out.

“Shane,” I corrected her.

“What?” She asked with a confused look on her face. It was rather quite adorable.

“When I’m inside you, you call me Shane,” I told her. Why? I have no idea. This certainly wasn’t discouraging her from thinking this was more than it was. I never let anyone call me Shane when I fucked them. Not since Ella. 

Blocking the thought from my head, I buried myself deep and circled my hips, hitting her swollen, sensitive clit.

“Shane,” she breathed as her climax hit her. Her nails scored my back and I made a mental note to let her have free reign more often.

Book Blast for Scared Beautiful by Jaqueline Abrahams



Maia wants to be free. Free from the social obligations, free from the money, free from the control that her privileged upbringing has taken from her life. And at college, she wants to be unseen, unheard, unnoticed. Jackson's life has been less than perfect since his high school girlfriend took the back door out of his life, permanently. After years of subscribing to an existence of less than gentlemanly behaviour, he decides to man up and go to college, promising to be done with random hook ups and female drama. They had it all worked out, each one had a plan. At least they did...until they met. Together they run from everything; from life, from happiness, from each other. They are two people both so scared; of heartbreak, of repeating past mistakes, of trusting someone else. Two people simply scared of beautiful... Please note: Scared of Beautiful is recommended for mature audiences 18+ due to sexual content and language




              I didn’t, however, take into account that when I was trying to be an elusive ice queen, that I am and probably always will be annoyingly comfortable in Jackson’s company. After stuffing our faces, we order drinks and relax into the evening, which as it turns out, flies by with ease. The more scotch I drink, the more attractive Jackson becomes and my eyes revert more than once to the bulge in his jeans. If he notices, he doesn’t mention a thing, but does casually adjust his pants when I lean forward to grab my phone from my bag, or to reapply my lip-gloss. I know I’m teasing, deliberately bending forward to flash my black lace bra. I want him to want me. But at the same time, I told him not to. More than once in the evening I’m distracted by the head versus heart versus vagina dilemma I have going on.

            “This is nice,” Jackson says quietly during our third round of drinks.

            “What?” I ask curiously.

            “Having drinks, no pressure. I guess we can be friends after all. Who knew?” He gives me a cocky sideways grin.

            “Easy huh?” I say with mock offense.

            “Not even missing me a little?” I try to sound nonchalant, but the sadness makes its way past my smile.

            “Every day,” he says looking down with sudden interest at the label on his beer bottle. “If being friends is the only way to see you, then it’s what I’ll gladly take.”

            The conversation stalls right then, because truthfully, there’s nothing either of us can say. We’re both lying and we know it. This awkwardness, this conversation, will always be the elephant in the room for us.

            I knock back the contents of my glass and order another. I should stop drinking. That’s what I should do. We should say goodnight and exit stage left to our respective lonely beds right fucking now. But neither of us go. Neither of us can. The Clever Bean around us is alive with the sounds of glasses clinking and drunken merriment. I knock back the next glass as it lands in my hand.

            “I should go,” I say with hesitation before grabbing my bag.

            “I’ll walk you,” Jackson says standing up.

            “I’m fine, it’s a few doors down,” I reply with a polite smile.

            Jackson gives me a cocky grin, “Mama said to be a gentleman at all times. Gotta listen to mama, now.”

            I shrug and we walk. The whiskey obviously has had a much stronger effect on me now that I’m standing up and using my lower extremities. After me missing the curb twice, Jackson slides an arm around my waist. I would tell him to back off, but he’s all that’s keeping me walking in a straight line. And he smells so fucking good, like soap and fresh mint mixed with an ocean breeze.

            This half drunk, half lucid state that I’m in is doing nothing to help me maintain my resolve. I want to fucking leap into Jackson’s arms, wrap my arms and legs around his person and hold on for dear life. The urge almost brings me to my knees a few times in our short walk. I stay silent, as I’m not able to trust myself with whatever could spew verbally from my mouth. Jackson opens my building door and holds it open for me.

            “Will you be okay from here?” he asks.

            Yes, no, not really, maybe. What the hell do I say? Before my brain formulates a decent response to the question, my body answers for me, and my traitorous lips crash into his. Jackson grabs my waist and kisses me as though he’s been roaming a desert and I’m his oasis, his water.

            “Maia.” My name leaves his lips through the kiss in a guttural moan, and it sounds so freaking hot. It must be the alcohol affecting me, because every nerve in my body feels like it’s laced with live voltage.

            Jackson pushes me up against the far wall, and the first thought that pops into my head is, thank God I don’t have a doorman. My body rocks between the wall and Jackson, and his hips grind me into the plaster so hard I’m worried for a moment that I’ll go straight through. Our kisses are feverish, almost suffocating us, and the air around us electric. He struggles to find bare skin, practically clawing at my clothing. Without a moment’s hesitation, I reach down for his belt buckle, my fingers clumsily prying it apart. I want to feel Jackson so badly that the thought clouds every other in my mind.

Cover Reveal Love Always by Yessi Smith

Title: Love, Always
Author: Yessi Smith
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Releasing: Fall 2014


**This book is intended for a mature reading audience and isn't suitable for readers under the age of 17.**

In love with a man on the brinks of greatness, Dee has her life figured out. The love they share is comparable only to the love they feel when they find out Dee is pregnant. Josh and Dee welcome their future together with eagerness as they plan a wedding, baby, and the upcoming tour for Josh’s band Wasted Circle. Big things are finally happening.

During Wasted Circle’s first big show, tragedy strikes leaving Dee alone. The life her and Josh planned for ends up being nothing but desolate promises. Unable to watch his best friend’s girlfriend drown under her own despair any longer, Adam steps in to help Dee cope with her loss and the upcoming birth of her baby. Adam is patient, kind and unrelenting. He stands by her side, never faltering despite his growing desire to be more than Dee’s supportive shoulder and the idea that he is betraying Josh. He refuses to give up on Dee and remains loyally by her side even when she admits herself into a psychiatric ward and he is left to father Josh and Dee’s baby.

But even sweet and sturdy Adam has his limits.
Adam kneels down beside me and hands me his phone after hitting play. I look at the screen and feel my lips tug when I see his face flash onto the screen.
“This is for you, Dee,” Adam says from the phone so I look back at him and he grins so I turn my attention back to the phone.
I watch him walk through the grocery store and only stops when he finds a young male associate; poor kid is probably in his late teens and has no idea what Adam is up to. I have no idea what Adam is up to but I feel for the kid because Adam can be downright devious.
“Excuse me,” Adam calls out and the boy turns his attention to Adam. “Do you know where I can find nipple butter?”
The camera shakes a little but I see the boy look around. “What kind of butter?”
“Nipple butter.”
The boy laughs. “Say that again.”
“Nipple butter.” The camera shifts and I see a blurry Adam run his finger in circles over his nipples. “You know, for your nipples.”
The boy laughs again and I feel my body shake in laughter as well. “For your nipples?”
“Well not mine.” I look back at Adam and find him watching me. He’s so sweet and cute.
“I don’t know what nipple butter is, man.” The boy looks around the store but I can see he’s laughing.
“Can you find out?” Adam asks, leaving no room for him to say no.
“Uh, yea.”
I lean my body against Adam and chuckle as the camera follows Adam’s paces throughout the aisle. After a long time, the boy returns and shows Adam where to find it.
I see Adam’s hand hold up the cream and wiggle it in front of the camera. “My nipples thank you.”

I lose it. I very literally lose it as I start to shake from laughter. I feel Adam laugh with me and for just a moment I forget that I’m sad.

Love, Always
Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22753739-love-always

I'm a Hispanic living in South Florida with my redneck husband from Texas and our "half breed" son, who is actually the reason I started writing again after years of celibacy. My son loves stories, but not the kind you can read in an existing book. No, he'd rather make up a story, complete with our own illustrations. So, thank you, Son, for igniting a flame I had let go out.
I also live with two dogs: a neurotic Border Collie we call Nitro and a midget Rottweiler named Nisa.
I have always found my sanctuary at the beach and in music and writing. I wish I could write rhymes so I could become a famous rapper, but rhyming is completely lost on me. My son surpassed me in the rhyming game by the time he was four. This is something I am very proud of.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Business Management and a Master's in Human Resource Management. I have held several jobs, from picking up dog poop to upper management positions. And now I am hoping to leave the business world behind so I can live full time in a world that does not exist until I place my fingers on a keyboard and bring them to fruition.
I published my first book Life's A Cappella last year.

She had me laughing through most of the book. I think you guys will like this one a lot. I hope you go one click it and meet this crazy clan that can't seem to keep themselves  out of trouble. I can't wait to see what they get them selves into next.

Author: Julie Solorio
Publication Date: July 24, 2014
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20673670-twisted-luck

I’m Kaitlyn.
In my life, rarely are there dull moments. I seem to land myself in these…situations a lot. I am 25, and in college (yes, still!). I have just met the most gorgeous guy, Cole, in my math class. The only problem is that he is a little guarded. Just when I start to make progress with him, my crazy elderly neighbor Marge disappears after visiting some questionable dating sites. Who the hell has even heard of bootycall.com?!
Anyway, since my best friend and roommate Hailey and I have kind of adopted Marge, we join forces with her grandson Matt to help find her. Cole even decides to join in the hunt! Along the way, we cross paths with Ben - a creeper who might also be really dangerous.
Will I be able to keep us safe and out of trouble, find Marge, and land the guy? Or will my Twisted Luck screw everything up?

I am a mother, a wife, a substitute teacher and now a writer! I love to read and write. I discovered the world of indie books about a year and a half ago. Since then I have read over 200 books. I got in to following book blogs for recommendations and found Love Between The Sheets. They were looking for reviewers so I applied and I've been writing for those wonderful ladies since.

Cover Reveal Conspire by S.E. Hall & Erin Noelle

Title: Conspire
Authors: S.E. Hall and Erin Noelle
Release Date: August 26, 2014
"He wants answers.
She wants freedom.
The search is over...when they Conspire."
Excerpt: Jocelyn“Race ya there,” I snicker, darting towards the bedroom I moved our clothes into, tossing his bag into the hall.
Let the games begin.
Somehow, he beats me down to the water – imagine that. With steeled armor, I keep my face stoic, my gait and candor unfazed, as I approach, despite the urge to snicker at his bulged-out eyes and jaw dropped into the ocean.
And yeah, I noticed his hand dip below the surface to adjust himself; doesn’t always shrink in cold water it would seem.
His head jerks left, right, then back to me as his eyes narrow to accusatory slits. “What’re you thinking, Trouble? Public beach,” he sputters.
Doe-eyed innocence, my lips twist cleverly. “Not for two miles either direction it isn’t. Besides, what’s the problem?” Surely it’s not my string-thong bikini bottoms and lack of a top?
If you told anyone, even Lys who’s known me forever, they’d bet on hell freezing over twice before believing I’m capable of such audacious, brazen antics, but I’m embracing it, rejoicing in the Jocelyn he brings out. Alive; seeing clearly, smelling flowers miles away, hearing the faintest of sounds – like I just started partaking in, and enjoying, the world that’s surrounded me my whole life.
His mouth curves upward at the corner, a twinkle in his eyes reflecting off the water as he beckons me to him with the leisurely crook of his finger.
“Moi?” I mouth, pointing to myself. My whole body’s buzzing, sexy satisfaction razoring through me as he slowly nods. “Alright,” I huff in feigned inconvenience.
I walk into the water as he walks out, hoisting me up as we meet, wrapping my legs around his waist for me.
“You’ll be my end, Jocelyn Craig,” he says, almost demurely, almost a frown, heading us backward into the deeper water.
“The ending’s supposed to be the best part.” I smile, leaning in to rest my forehead on his. “Do I win the game?”
He glances down at my breasts – nipples hardened from the cool water, his tongue lazily tracing his bottom lip. “I’m afraid you just might.”

Review Throttled By Chelle Bliss

Throttled Synopsis:
She’s about to become his – Mrs. Joseph Gallo. All she wants is to be his, but his possessiveness days before the wedding has her questioning the reality of a happily ever after. He’s not easy. He’s territorial and doesn’t share well with others. City’s staking his claim, making Suzy his forever. Their future teeters precariously on the cliff of matrimonial bliss. Will their love survive his alpha nature or will it all unravel before she can say ‘I do’?
Mel's Review:
                 First let me say that if you haven't read Chelle's Men Of Inked series you are seriously missing out. Throttled is the 3rd book in this series... and I can't wait to have more from Chelle and the Gallo gang. She has done an amazing job with these books and I can not say enough good things about them. Throttled was like the icing on the cake for me with City and Suzy.

You first fell in love with City and Suzy in Throttle Me and who doesn't love a Tattooed, foul mouthed hot man with one wicked sexy sweet side.
Well in Throttled Joseph Gallo is back with his very sexy foul mouth that will make any girl swoon, including his fiancé Suzy. I love that we still get to see the gang in this book. Throttled does a nice job of telling City and Suzy's happy ending while leading us into more of what the Gallo's have to offer. We meet some new characters that we will get to know in Resist Me (Izzy's book)Chelle did another amazing job with this one. #Gallogirlforlife
