As a witch she has power, power she doesn’t know how to use, power that makes her vulnerable to the demons that desire her gifts. Anora is alone and scared, forced to face the darkness on her own. Then she meets Ethan, a mysterious boy who shows up in her life right along with the magic, and he seems to know quite a bit about her and her legacy Coven. Will she risk everything by trusting him or risk fighting alone?

Cover Reveal Just for Now by Abbi Glines

Title: Just for Now (Sea Breeze, #4)
Age Group/Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Expected Release: October 23, 2012
Cover Design: Mooney Designs
Book trailer created by: Hellion Works
Cover reveal organized by: AToMR Tours

Blurb: The day Preston Drake figured out that wealthy women paid well for a set of tight abs and a pretty face his life turned around.

The run down rat-infested trailer he had shared with his alcoholic mother and three younger siblings was now only a place he visited to pay the bills and stock the pantry with food.

He no longer worried about his family starving or living without electricity. The money he made entertaining rich older women more than covered his family’s needs and his own. He had it all figured out. Except…

There was this girl.

She was as innocent as he was tainted.

Amanda Hardy wished her knees didn’t get weak when Preston walked into a room. She hated the fact her heart raced when he flashed his smile in her direction. He had a different girl in his bed every night. He was the kind of boy a smart girl ran from. So, why was she coming up with ways to get close to him? Even when it was obvious he wanted to keep her at a distance.

Maybe her heart knew something the world didn’t. Maybe Preston Drake was more than just a pretty face.

Beyond Shame by Kit Rocha

All Noelle Cunningham has ever wanted is a life beyond–beyond the walls of Eden, where only the righteous are allowed to remain, and beyond her stiflingly restrictive existence as a councilman’s daughter. But only ruins lie outside the City, remnants of a society destroyed by solar storms decades earlier.

The sectors surrounding Eden house the corrupt, the criminal–men like Jasper McCray, bootlegger and cage fighter. Jas clawed his way up from nothing to stand at the right hand of Sector Four’s ruthless leader, and he’ll defend the O’Kane gang with his life. But no fight ever prepared him for the exiled City girl who falls at his feet.

Her innocence is undeniable, but so is their intense sexual attraction, and soon they’re crossing every boundary Noelle barely knew she had. But if she wants to belong to Jas, first she’ll have to open herself to the gang, to a dangerous world of sex, lust and violence. A world where passion is power, and freedom is found in submission.
For Readers 18 and Older!

What Thank You Really Means...

Next month is our sixth month as a blog. Let me tell you the first three should not even count. I had no widgets to follow. Put up maybe two or three reviews and never promoted them. I was actually kind of scared someone would read them. LOL. Then I invited Kami on board and we kind of took off. Last night I was thinking about how far we have come, our stats are decent and I really really really love the readers and fans that we have. We have a core group of girls that are super active on our facebook page and on the blog as well. I've made some amazing friendships with some of these people.
In reality, I talk to you all more than I talk to my real life friends. Is that sad? Maybe. But let's put it this way. You all know my passion and support me in it. Not a single one of my real life friends follows this blog. Not a single one of them has read a post, commented on a picture or post on facebook. Hell, when I invited them to 'like' our facebook page none of them did. None of them support me in this. Not even a single bit. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out that I am passionate about books. That maybe this is one of the loves of my life. That maybe supporting me, instead of laughing at me would be the right thing to do. Pssh they'll get it someday.
I digress. What I am really trying to say here is that you guys and gals rock! You keep me going. You make me smile on an everyday basis. Without you I wouldn't be doing this. So, really Thank You.

Outpost by Ann Aguirre

Blurb from Goodreads:

Deuce’s whole world has changed. Down below, she was considered an adult. Now, topside in a town called Salvation, she’s a brat in need of training in the eyes of the townsfolk. She doesn’t fit in with the other girls: Deuce only knows how to fight.

To make matters worse, her Hunter partner, Fade, keeps Deuce at a distance. Her feelings for Fade haven’t changed, but he seems not to want her around anymore. Confused and lonely, she starts looking for a way out.

Deuce signs up to serve in the summer patrols—those who make sure the planters can work the fields without danger. It should be routine, but things have been changing on the surface, just as they did below ground. The Freaks have grown smarter. They’re watching. Waiting. Planning. The monsters don’t intend to let Salvation survive, and it may take a girl like Deuce to turn back the tide.

Book 2 in the Crescent Chronicles
Expected to come out January, 2013!

Wednesday, September 5, 2012


Ok, right now I am reading Reaper by Emily Goodwin. I actually had to read Unbound super fast to beta read Reaper. I had it on my kindle but had never gotten to it. Lame. Yep, I feel really lame right now. I LOVED Unbound. It was awesomesauce. I am now well into Reaper and I just couldn't not go on bing today and search for bits and pieces of Anora's life. I mean really. How cool are witches? When Charmed the tv show first came out my whole family was obsessed with it. Add in a splash of Supernatural and you have Unbound and Reaper. It's so beautiful. So I actually dedicated a pinterest board to it. Ok...ok it's for all books I read in the future but for now it's all about Anora. You can go check it out HERE. My major squeal of the day came when I saw that Emily had repinned one of my pins as exactly what it was supposed to be Anora's house. How awesome. Ok. I'm done fangirling on ya'all. 

And because I can't resist I'm throwing in the Charmed theme song...aka The Smiths How Soon Is Now?

This book is FIRE!!!

On Dublin Street

by: Samantha Young

*Not for Kiddos*

From Goodreads:
Four years ago, Jocelyn Butler left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Edinburgh. Burying the grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without any real attachments has worked well for her so far but when Joss moves into a fantastic apartment on Dublin Street, her carefully guarded world is shaken to its core by her new roommate's sexy older brother.

Braden Carmichael is a man who always gets what he wants. And what he wants is Jocelyn in his bed. Knowing how skittish Joss is concerning any kind of relationship, Braden proposes a sexual arrangement that should satisfy the intense attraction between them without it developing into anything 'more'. An intrigued Jocelyn agrees, completely unprepared for the Scotsman and his single-minded determination to strip the stubborn young woman bare... to the very soul.

Contains strong adult content. For readers ages 18+


Samantha Young is incredible! Her YA's are amazing! So when I found out that she was writing a contemp romance I was like...HELL YES! Where do I sign up!? When she announced on her facebook that she put it up on Smashwords early...I went and got it. I stopped reading review books for this one guys and gals. I'm not sorry either! Absolutely the best contemp romance I have read ever.
