Family isn’t always defined by blood.

I’m a lucky guy like that.
I found a love that will never fade. I found a group of people who aren’t just my friends.
They’ve become my family.
There’s only one place to go from here.
I’m gonna bind myself to Rimmel in every possible way.
I’m gonna bring our family even closer together.
The past has taught me it won’t be easy.

But that’s okay.
Family doesn’t quit each other.
Love like ours never dies.
Happily ever after isn’t just for storybooks.

Adult Review: Rock Chick (Rock Chick #1) by Kristen Ashley

This book is suitable for Adult readers!!!

Goodread summary:
Indy Savage, cop's daughter, rock chick and used bookstore owner, has been in love with Lee Nightingale, once bad boy, now the man behind Nightingale Investigations, since she was five years old. No matter what ingenious schemes Indy used to capture his attention, Lee never showed an interest and Indy finally gave up. Now Indy's employee, Rosie, has lost a bag of diamonds and bad guys are shooting at him. When Indy gets involved, Lee is forced to help. Complicating matters, Lee has decided he's interested, Indy's decided she's not. But she can't seem to keep Lee out of her life when she's repeatedly stun gunned, kidnapped and there are car bombs exploding (not to mention she's finding dead bodies).

Indy's best bet is to solve the mystery of the diamonds before Lee. Lee's challenge is to keep Indy alive and, at the same time, win back her heart.

I haven't laughed so much at a book in a while. It was awesome! I loved it.
India Savage is not your typical kind of girl.. she is kind of unique and awesome in a very funny way. She is a magnet for trouble and a tendency to cause even more trouble with her actions. She is a Rock Chick and she loves her freedom. She also loves her best friend and partner in crime Ally.

“Your grandmother used to say that you were two souls separated in heaven. She mainly meant you were both trouble and deserved each other.” 

I love Ally as well because she was the perfect sidekick to Indy. You know, when you have a friend that will try to talk you out of a stupid decision and then a best friend that will just shout "LET'S DO IT". Yeah Indy and Ally were the second type of friends and it's an awesome relationship. 

And Indy just happens to be in love with Ally's older brother Liam 'Lee' Nightingale who is a man that has to have his control... And who is very interested in Indy. That whole relationship was fun to watch unfold because Indy is not a woman that likes to be told what to do and Lee is a man that needs to control his environment.

“Lee, you’re gonna have to get over this jealous-possessiveness thing.”
“Indy, you’re gonna have to get used to the fact that I’m the jealous-possessive type.” 

The combination of these two was perfect really. Indy has a tendency to lie and flirt and Lee has a tendency to over-react and be crazy possessive. It was like watching an action comedy. It was priceless and I loved every second of it. 

My main problem came from the number of people involved in this story. There were too many to keep track of but I'm sure I'll get to know all of them and I'll find a way to recognize everyone. Also some parts of the book were a bit too ridiculous but I loved those even more because it made things even more fun.

“Rule Number One in the India Savage Life Code: When in doubt or possible trouble, lie.” 

Include a crazy family, strange awesome people, badasses all around, drag queens, cute dog, kidnappings, explosions, dead people.. Presents. And about a hundred other insane things and you can possibly be close to how AMAZING this book was but you need to read it to really know what I'm talking about. 

Really it was entertaining like nothing I've ever read. It was hilarious and serious and then it was sweet and passionate. It was great. I actually didn't want it to be over even though that would mean more trouble for the good guys. I just wanted more of them.
I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of the books in the series and I can't wait to see what happens.

Adult Review: Heart-Shaped Hack (Kate and Ian #1) by Tracey Garvis-Graves

This book is suitable for Adult readers!!!

Goodread summary:
When Kate Watts abandoned her law career to open a food pantry in Northeast Minneapolis, she never dreamed it would be this difficult. Facing the heartbreaking prospect of turning hungry people away, she is grateful for the anonymous donations that begin appearing at the end of each month. Determined to identify and thank her secret benefactor, she launches a plan and catches Ian —a charismatic hacker with a Robin Hood complex—in the act.

Ian intrigues Kate in a way no man ever has. But after learning he’s snooped around on her personal computer, she demands retribution. Impressed with her tolerance and captivated by her spirit, he complies and begins to slowly charm his way past her defenses. Time spent with Ian is never boring, and Kate soon finds herself falling for the mysterious hacker.

But Ian has enemies and they’re growing restless. In the hacking world, exploiting a target’s weakness is paramount, and no price is too high to stop an attack. And when Kate learns exactly how much Ian has paid, she’ll discover just how strong her love is for the man who has hacked his way into her heart.

And you should check out the author on Goodreads and her website.

“You’ve obviously hacked into my computer. How did you do it?”
“I came in your backdoor.”
“I’m certain you did not.”
“I assure you that I did.”
“Without even discussing it with me first? No preparation? No warning? Don’t you think that’s incredibly bad form?”
Ian grinned. “Are we still talking about your computer? Because I find you utterly delightful right now.” 

I've read a lot of great books this year but this one stands out in a very unique way.
I loved the beginning of the story. It was light and fun and it was entertaining and interesting. I loved the characters and their interactions. I loved the way it was all playing out. I loved the heartbreak that followed and I loved the way that played out... Do you see the pattern?
I can't point out one thing that made this book so unique but it was. I was hooked before I even started reading it. Before I even had the chance to buy it! The quotes alone made me fall in love.

I was obsessed with reading this book maybe two weeks ago when it was literally everywhere I look. All my Facebook and goodreads groups were blowing up with comments and reviews and I kept stumbling onto these awesome quotes. I just needed to read it and now that I have, it's all so much better.

Kate Watts is awesome! She is independent, she is smart, she is funny and she is not lead around by anyone. She knows what she wants and she gets it done. She is determined to help people and she enjoys doing it. 

“I’ll win you over eventually. I’m very charming that way.” 

Ian is the BEST! And not just as a hacker but in general. He is so cocky and fun! Always looks on the bright side of things or he's making light of every situation. It was fun to read about his interactions with Kate because he was so confident and determined to win her over. I don't read a lot of books with male characters like him. He wasn't an alpha male in the sense I'm used to reading. Don't get me wrong, he always gets what he wants and he knows just how to play things to get the most advantage out of them. And he could show off like no one else. But he isn't.. how do I even put it, he's not so obvious about it. He is not all bulging muscles and brooding looks. He is tall, strong and gorgeous with an killer smile and more mischief in his eyes.

Let's just say that Ian made an impression and it was a GREAT one! I just LOVED reading about him through Kate's eyes (and she loved him so...).

And the interactions between these two.. pure gold! I was fascinated by it. 

“I did tell you yesterday that I wasn’t feeling especially pretty.” “Even when you’re sick, you’re a solid eight point five.” “How very sweet in a completely sexist way.” “When you’re not sick you’re an eleven.”

But I guess what I loved the most is their relationship. It didn't play out like most of my recent reads. It wasn't a lightning fast development when they fall hard overnight. Maybe they did fall fast but they went through the motions of dating and getting to know each other and in turn that allowed us to get to know them.

"I love you. I will never stop loving you."

I haven't felt this for a book in a long time but I love it and I'm really looking forward to reading the second part of their story! It's the easiest 5 stars review I've given in a while. There's not one thing that I would change about this story and now I'm desperate for more!

 I give it:

Summer's over & #TenBooksChallenge

It's the middle of September and I just finished my first ever job. Every summer until now, I spent having fun and doing nothing but this year I had to get a job. That's what I've been doing for the past 2 and a half months.
I was working six days a week so I didn't have a lot of free time to read. That is why I haven't posted anything for so long but I think that's about to change.
I have a strange habit of wanting to read only when I have a lot on my mind so I imagine I'll really want to read when school starts in a week.

To start my new posting cycle I want to answer a challenge that is so popular in the last couple of days. The 10 books challenge. I was challenged by T & G Book Boutique.

And here are my picks:
1. Twilight by Stephanie Mayer (these are the books that started my obsession)

2. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead (one of my all times favorite series)

3. Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire (this is the first book in a new genre for me and I love it!)

4. Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (unbelievable series!)

5. Divergent by Veronica Roth (do I even need to explain!) 

6. Monsters in the Dark series by Pepper Winters (This is not a book I would easily recommend and it's not because it isn't awesome. It is one of the most amazing books I've ever read but it's not for everyone. It's dark and twisted and I love it!) 

7. The Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine (books that relay a lot on loyalty)

8. Just One Day/ Just One Year by Gayle Forman (a beautiful love story)

9. Rosemary Beach series by Abbi Glines (one of the last series I read and it's pretty addictive) 

10. Night Huntress by Jeaniene Frost (just a little something I love to re-read because I know it's good and it's always makes me feel good)

I won't be nominating anyone here because I already posted this on my facebook page and my nominees are there.

Summary(provided by the author):
#1 New York Times Bestseller Jamie McGuire returns to self-publishing with this page-turning YA account of Erin Easter, one of three Erins in the small senior class of rural Blackwell High School who not only share a first name, but also their birthday. Erin Easter, raised by a neglectful single mom, keeps to herself and admires Weston Gates from afar. The other Erins, Erin A. and Erin M. are the darlings of the community: daughters of the two wealthiest families in town, best friends, cheerleaders, and everything Erin Easter isn't--and they never let her forget it. Erin A. has even claimed Weston since the 8th grade.

Weston is a well-liked star athlete, and the son of two prominent attorneys. He struggles daily with the pressures of living up to his family name and secretly empathizes with Erin Easter's feeling that she belongs somewhere else; in a different life. Not until he begins sneaking nights out with Erin does he gain the courage to buck expectations and acknowledge his feelings ... both for his future, and for her.

But when a shocking tragedy rocks the tiny town, Erin's life is turned upside down in the best way possible. But when the truth is revealed and everything Erin thinks she wanted falls into her lap, life only becomes more complicated.

This is a Book Blitz post about the book Dark and Deadly by 8 amazing authors. There's an excerpt and am INTERNATIONAL giveaway below so check it out and you just might like it.I'm fixating on Jennifer Ashley's story because I've read it and it's absolutely amazing.

Title: Dark and Deadly: Eight Bad Boys of Paranormal Romance

Genre: Adult, Paranormal Romance

Goodreads link: Click here!
Purchase links: Amazon, B&N
Synopsis(provided by the author):

BODYGUARD by Jennifer Ashley

DARKNESS FALLS by Erin Kellison
ROGUE’S PASSION by Laurie London
THE MATING HEAT by Bonnie Vanak
TRAPPED by Caris Roane

Excerpt from BODYGUARD By Jennifer Ashley:

The bear climbed to his feet, swung his great head around, and fixed red-raged eyes on Elizabeth.

He was the biggest living creature Elizabeth had ever seen. On all fours, the bear stood about six feet tall at the shoulder, which put his head well above Elizabeth’s. His breath huffed between immense and sharp teeth, his growls rumbling from his throat like thunder. His gaze still locked on hers, he took a step toward her on one massive paw.

Elizabeth brought her hand up, aimed the can of pepper spray at his face, and gave him a full dose.

The bear blinked, drew back, blinked again, sat down on his hind legs, and rocked his head all the way back. Then he sneezed.

The noise exploded into the room like a sonic boom, vibrating papers on the desk and rattling the Victorian prints on the walls in their prim and proper frames.

The bear rose on his hind legs again and kept rising, ten feet—twelve—fifteen, his bulk hunching to fit under the low ceiling. At the same time, his immense body started to shrink.

The bear’s face contorted, muzzle shortening, as did, thank God, his teeth.

In about thirty seconds the bear was gone, and a man stood in its place. The man was just as massive as the bear—at least seven feet tall, with chocolate brown hair buzzed short, eyes as dark as the bear’s, an almost square face with a once-broken nose, and a chin and jaw dark with five o’clock shadow.

His arm bore a bloody gash where the bullet had whipped by it, but his body was muscle on top of muscle on top of muscle, not an ounce of fat that Elizabeth could see. And Elizabeth saw it all, because the man was stark naked. Except for the Collar, which had shrunk to fit his human neck, the bear-man wore not a stitch.

He wiped his streaming eyes. “Shit, woman,” he said in a voice that brought down a trickle of ceiling tile dust to whiten his hair. “That itches.”


If you guys leave a comment I'll enter you for a chance to win one (1) ebook copy of Dark and Deadly. It's open internationally and it'll end on May 10th.

Book Blitz: The Replacement by Rachael Wade + Excerpt & Giveaway [US/Can]

This is a Book Blitz post about the book The Replacement by Rachael Wade. There's an excerpt and a US/Can giveaway below so check it out and you just might like it.

Title: The Replacement
Series: N/A
Author: Rachael Wade
Genre: Contemporary, New Adult
Publication date:  January 27th 2014
Goodreads link: Click here!
Purchase links: Amazon, B&N
Synopsis(provided by the author):
*Contains sexually explicit content and mature subject matter, including language and elements of abuse.*

A gritty New Adult drama about a young woman’s self-destructive quest to find purpose, self-worth, and love in a broken world.

My name is Elise Duchamp. I’m twenty-three years old and I’m known as the town whore.

No, not the kind who exchanges sexual favors for money. The other kind. The kind who gives it all away for free, whenever and however she likes. I am that girl. The one everyone whispers about and the one none of the girls seem to like, because all of their boyfriends either want to sleep with me or already have. Promiscuity is my thing—the kind that slowly, violently turns my insides black, but gives me something I need.

All things considered, I’m not completely reckless. I’m safe, and contrary to popular opinion, I do have a heart. I live in a world of careless choices, and with those choices come careless people. I cannot judge them, because I am one of them. I too bow down to the altar of the self-serving. I am not a good friend. I am not and never could be anyone’s girlfriend. I’m convinced any goodness in me shriveled up and died long ago.

But I am a replacement. That is something I know how to be, and this is a story of the lengths I’d go to in order to keep it that way.

Meet the Author

Rachael Wade is the Amazon bestselling author of The Preservation Series, The Resistance Trilogy, and the upcoming sci-fi series, The Keepers Trilogy. When she’s not writing, she’s busy learning French, watching too many movies, and learning how to protect animals and the environment.

“Stop!” I shriek, thrashing on his lap like a fish out of water. “Ryder, stop!”
He digs at my hip again, sending me tumbling into an endless fit of laughter. My lungs burn because I can’t breathe and my sides ache from the exertion. I topple over and land on my side, and Ryder comes with me, sliding on top of me in one smooth, swift movement. “I think we’ve played enough games for today ,” he says, running the palms of his hands up the sides of my thighs. His thumbs roll slow, soothing circles into my skin before hooking into the sides of my panties to peel them down my legs. My laughter subsides and I look up at him, my chest heaving as I regain my breath. We lie there on the floor in a tangled heap of limbs, while the fire’s warmth gives Ryder’s face a soft glow.
Small pops crackle from the fire and gravitate toward us, saturating the silence.
Lowering his forehead to my shoulder, Ryder kisses the skin there. “Do you feel it yet?”
“Feel what?” Desolation? Helplessness? Excitement? I feel all of those things.
“This.” Ryder’s hand slides down my chest and torso like silk, slipping beneath my skirt, easy as breathing. I gasp as his fingers slip inside of me. “Desire. The same kind I feel for you.”
“You know I do.”
He strokes me for a moment then stops, leaving me panting while he reaches back to the couch to pick up the bowl of ice cream. It’s melted now, each color swirling together like mixed paint. “Feed me,” he whispers, lifting the bowl to me.
My dazed gaze drifts to the bowl. I hesitantly sit up on my elbows and cradle it, watching him curiously as I begin to spoon him the milky leftovers. He accepts a spoonful, then another, groaning in appreciation. He pushes the spoon away when he’s satisfied and I set the bowl down, watching as he brings my hand to his lips. Sucking one finger then the next, he moves slowly from tip to tip, drawing me farther and farther away from our question-and-answer session.
“Ryder,” I breathe.
He closes his lips over my right index finger and sucks, drawing it slowly from his mouth. The mixture of cool and warm coats my skin, and I wonder how I’ll ever enjoy ice cream without Ryder after tonight. “I really want this,” he says. “Us.”
I shut my eyes and he moves in, brushing his lips against mine. “You have us. Right here.”
“Do I?”
My eyes drift open.
He deepens the kiss, murmuring against my mouth. “I’ll never just drive away, Elise Duchamp.”
The words zap me like a stun gun. My voice comes out in a light rasp. Small and breathless. “I’ve hurt people, Ryder.”
He studies me for a moment but doesn’t respond, only deepens his kiss. I cave into him, letting him devour me whole. I don’t know what I can give him. I don’t know if I have anything at all. But I do know that Ryder Jacobson is trouble.
The good kind.

The steamy sequel to BREAKING THE STORM by Sedona Venez.

He’s flawed like a MF, but I want him.

Ryker Alfero
Wolf-Shifter. Tattooed. Dangerous. Off-limits. Everything I crave — and everything I shouldn’t want.

“I would love to see what else your dirty little mouth can do.” With those little words, my body shivered as a surge of energy zipped into my body, unlocking something I didn’t understand. My brain started functioning with a clarity I hadn’t experienced in years. No warring emotions, just calmness.

This shouldn’t be happening, especially not with him. God. This was going to be a rough damn ride.

“I’ll do my best to break you in slowly, submissive,” he hissed, his voice dripping with raw sex.

Is total submission inevitable?

“When I get you under me, it’s going to be slow, hard, and memorable.” ~ Ryker

I have other plans.

“Go find yourself a woman stupid enough to settle for less than you're willing to give. Whose heart you can break without giving a sh*t. This woman is off limits.” ~ Lightning

In a blink of an eye, before I realized what I was doing, I walked over to him, straddling him and cupping his face.
His sea-green eyes snapped open. “Light? What the hell are you doing?” The deep timber of his voice sent a shiver down my spine. Damn, it was sexy. “I’m spiraling out of control. And when I get like this, I’m dangerous. And nothing can calm my beast except time to cool down.”
I didn’t move. Instead, I ran a finger across the scar on his left eyebrow. Strangely, he leaned his face into my hands tenderly, wrapping his arms around my back. I tried not to blink in shock. Dammit, he was turning out to be exactly the opposite of what I envisioned. Despite his hard, steel demeanor, I felt the passionate streak that ran through his core. He actually cared about his pack and Others. This wasn’t what I envisioned him to be as an Alpha from a ruthless bloodline.
I ran my fingers across his well-groomed, dark beard, enjoying the softness. He growled low and sensually. I felt the slight prick of his claws through my shirt, which normally would have sent me sprinting away, but there wasn’t anything normal about this strange connection between us. Slowly, I felt his claws retract and his blunt fingers caress my back.
His full focus was on me, the attention giving me little shivers of awareness as we stared at each other, speechless, faces mere inches apart. Ryker leaned into my body, pressing his lips against mine before he sucked my tongue into his mouth. My tongue slid around the tip of his, then rubbed under it. My body pulsed with need, and every cell was focused on him. His hands slid up to my neck, grabbing the back of my head possessively before kissing my throat gently. The contradiction between the hardness of his grip on my hair and the gentleness of his kiss sent a shiver down my spine, my mind imagining all of the other delicious things his mouth could do.
What would those big hands feel like on my body? My skin quivered at the thought.

Book Blitz: Escorted (Escorted, #1) by Claire Kent + Excerpt & 2 Giveaways [INT]

This is a Book Blitz post about the book Escorted by Claire Kent. There's an excerpt and two INTERNATIONAL giveaways below so check it out and you just might like it.

Title: Escorted
Series: Escorted, #1
Author: Claire Kent
Genre: Erotica, Romance
Publication date: December 15th 2012
Goodreads link: Click here!
Purchase links: Amazon, B&N
Synopsis(provided by the author):
She hired him to take her virginity...but now she wants even more.
Lori might be a popular romance writer, but she's never been anything but a flop with sex and love in her personal life. Still a virgin at twenty-six and increasingly frustrated by her inexperience, she decides to take matters into her own hands. She hires a talented, sexy male escort to take care of her inconvenient virginity.

She assumes one time with Ander will be enough, but she never dreams how much pleasure he can make her feel. Once isn't nearly enough. Twice isn't enough either. Soon, she becomes one of his regular clients.

Lori knows that nothing would be as foolish as falling in love with her paid escort, but she's never been wise with her heart. And, despite his professionalism, he doesn't seem entirely immune either.

Meet the Author

Ander looked over, his eyes automatically scanning her body in her cashmere tank and pajama pants. But his gaze didn’t linger. He handed Lori an unopened packet. “Dental dams,” he explained. “For oral sex. I don’t have unprotected sex of any kind.”
“Of course. I wouldn’t be using your services otherwise.” She’d never seen a dental dam before so she studied the packet with interest, glad for any sort of distraction from what would be coming next.
“These are the best quality I’ve been able to find. Very thin and the texture is good. It will still be very enjoyable for you.”
She swallowed hard. “Pretty smug about your skills, aren’t you?”
He made a brief choked sound, as if he’d smothered a surprised laugh. Pulling out a tube of lubricant, he carried it with two dam packets and a couple of condoms to the nightstand. “I guess we’ll have to wait and see whether I’m smug or simply realistic.”
His dry response made her giggle a little, and she walked over to join him next to the bed. When she looked from his slick, sexy good-looks to the large bed draped with a fluffy down comforter, her giggle changed to a nervous gurgle.
“You’re in control of this,” Ander said, holding her gaze with a cool expression. “We do whatever you want to do. I can act however you want me to act. Just tell me.”
“I don’t want you to pretend to be romantic or hot for me or anything. I want it to be...be real. I mean, don’t pretend we’re doing anything other than we are.”
“Understood. I can do that. Would you prefer me to stay in my clothes or take them off?” Ander replied smoothly, not appearing to notice her anxiety.
She thought for just a moment but knew the sight of his undoubtedly fine, naked body would be the end of her nerve. “Keep them on.”
“And you?”
She crossed her arms in front of her chest, suddenly conscious of the way her full breasts were outlined in the clinging tank she wore and that her nipples were visibly tight from her arousal. “I’ll keep them on for now,” she said, “Until ...”
He nodded. “Lights?”
“Is there anything else you’d like? Questions or requests?”
He waited patiently, watching her with an oddly quiet look of scrutiny. When she couldn’t manage to get anything said, he asked softly, “What can I do to make you less nervous?”
