Review: Hero


Hero
Hero by Samantha Young

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



What an inspiring and intriguing story. Definitely #ONECLICK worthy!!

I truly loved Alexa and her smart-ass'd comments and charming, yet hold-nothing-back, personality. She is a strong woman who not only wears her heart on her sleeve, but doesn't cower to anyone. What an inspiration to watch her follow her goals and heart to do what SHE feels is right, no matter the consequences.

Caine is an absolutely brash and yet charming in an i-always-get-what-i-want kind of way. He is closed off and totally unwilling to budge on his decisions or what he wants.

To watch their interactions you can't help but giggle and love their chemistry.

This story was more than I thought it would be. And happily so. With a title like "Hero" I was weary of reading something cookie-cutterish and boring, but what I got was heartfelt and thrilling with twists and turns I couldn't have seen coming. Definitely glad I was given the opportunity to read this book as it has left a lasting impression. Not everything or anyone is what they seem to be, and never take life for granted.

Review: Making the Cut - Selected Sinners MC Erotic Romance


Making the Cut - Selected Sinners MC Erotic Romance
Making the Cut - Selected Sinners MC Erotic Romance by Scott Hildreth

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



Sinfully perfect and exciting every step of the way...Avery and Axton are a breath of sinful air in this fresh but realistic look into a MC Club. Loyalty, honor, and commitment...to the club and each other, both Avery and Slice (aka Axton) are amazing individuals and strengthen as well as provide the POVs of this story.

Slim chances, lead to changes, which shape the progress of their journey getting to know each other. You just can't get enough of these two and their chemistry once they meet. Quick witted and definitely adventurous...Avery is a tuff as nails chick you instantly respect and admire for her no BS and intriguing take on life. Alpha biker and all business...Axton is sinfully written and devilish, but never backs down when it comes to getting what he wants. I can't wait to see if their adventures lead them to the same destination. A deliciously good read that I simply could not put down!!

Cover Reveal for The Life of Anna, Part 4: Ensnared by Marissa Honeycutt



                                                Title: Ensnared   

                                                    Series: (The Life of Anna #4) 

Author:  



Synopsis:
Everything Anna cared about is lost; the only thing left is Devin. She gives him all of herself, but even that seems too little.
As Anna realizes the truth of her Master's desire, she must decide what it is that she truly wants.

There is a subculture within our own world that you’ve only heard whispers of. The conspiracy theorists wish they knew Anna’s story. What the conspiracy theorists think they know is only disinformation, put out there to keep them from the real story.


***NOTE***
This is not a stand-alone novel. This is the fourth of five novels that tell Anna’s story.


***WARNING***
This book is for grownups. This book is not for people who are easily offended, get nightmares easily, or have difficulty reading books about tough subjects. I do not glorify bad things, but bad things do happen to my poor characters. This is not your typical love story. My heroine does not fall in love and live happily ever after... at least not like the typical heroine. There is a happily ever after, but it is a long, painful journey to that end.
This book will likely offend you. This book might make you cry; it might make you throw up. It is a dark book. As my friend, Heidi, said, “It’s dark. It gets darker. It gets even darker, and then it gets even more darker. And then, just when you think it can’t get any darker, it does.”
But, don’t worry. I take you to the deep end gradually. ;)
There are many sexual situations in this series of books. People die. People get hurt. Things aren’t always truly the way they appear. The antagonist isn’t just a bad guy; he’s EVIL. My heroine’s worldview is skewed; things that may appall you are perfectly normal to her.
Any violence in this book is non-gratuitous and crucial to the plot and character development.
Do not read this if you are under the age of consent in your country. Do not get angry if the subject or actual book upsets you. If you're reading this, you've been warned.

BOOK COVER
SYNOPSIS
Axton a.k.a. Slice -
Slice is the President of the Selected Sinners MC. He lives a life of being an outlaw, and believes the club motto, The Devil Looks After His Own, to be true. Additionally, he believes if the club wanted a member to have an Ol’ Lady, one would have been sewn on the front of their cut when they were patched in.

With his father serving a life prison sentence and no idea of who his mother is, Slice is a loner and one of a dying breed of outlaws who thumb their noses at the law, the government, and any expectation society may have placed on them.
Avery -
Avery Taylor traveled half way across the United States to attend school and escape her religious overbearing mother. Now a senior in college, she yearns to live a life opposite of the one she has lived to date; under the thumb of her strict parents.

Avery believes she wants a bad boy; someone who can take charge of her in-your-face personality, harsh mouth, and take no sh*t attitude. Working in a bar part time as a bartender, she’s shocked one night when the Selected Sinners MC comes in for a drink.

Her shock turns to lust when Slice walks in.

But she has no idea how bad of a bad boy Slice truly is.

ABOUT AUTHOR
Scott Hildreth is a very analytical sort who bases his beliefs on statistics he compiles in his head. Often going as long as a month without so much as a single sip of water, he drinks coffee as if it were the lifeblood of his writing. 

Scott fears flying, clowns, and amusement park rides. Tall and lean with a cleanly shaven head and covered in tattoos, he doesn’t blend in well. After reading his writings, this makes perfect sense. His vibrant characters, backstories, and plots, although always relatable, generally stand out as much as he does. 

Willing to discuss matters at length most people shy away from, Scott’s writing has revolved around such subjects as domestic abuse, suicide, alcoholism, drug abuse, cancer, divorce, homosexuality, religion, and lack thereof. 

Born in San Diego, California, Scott now calls Wichita, Kansas his home. He is a proud father, and lives devoted to the love of his life, Jessica. When he isn’t writing, he may be found on his motorcycle or in a local coffee house. 

Scott's novels include Broken People, Undefeated, Unstoppable, Unleashed, Unbroken, Baby Girl - Ruined, Baby Girl - Owned, Baby Girl - Loved, To the Depths of Hell, The Alpha-Bet, Finding Parker, Karter, and Confessions of a Smut Author.

Author Bio

**Bound by custom or unique by choice.**

There's something about the written word that's pure magic.


Possibly it's the fact that there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering that they're able to change our lives.

How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?

I like to think of myself as 'unique'. My stories aren't for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be 'normal'.

Normal is subjective.

I prefer to be known as a person who's never been 'bound by custom' but is 'unique by choice'.

Until next time

Release Day Blitz for Bridges Burned by Chris Cannon


Bridges Burned
By Chris Cannon
January 27, 2015


Don’t just fight the system…burn it.
Since discovering she is a shape-shifting, fire-breathing dragon on her sixteenth birthday (surprise!), Bryn McKenna’s world has been thrown into chaos. Being a “crossbreed”—part Red dragon and part Blue—means Bryn will never fit in. Not with dragon society. Not with the archaic and controlling Directorate. And definitely not when she has striped hair and a not-so-popular affection for rule-breaking…
But sneaking around with her secret boyfriend, Zavien, gets a whole lot harder when he’s betrothed to someone else. Someone who isn’t a mixed breed and totally forbidden. And for an added complication, it turns out Bryn’s former archnemesis Jaxon Westgate isn’t quite the evil asshat she thought. Now she’s caught between her desire to fit in and a need to set things on fire. Literally.
Because if Bryn can’t adapt to the status quo…well, then maybe it’s time for her to change it.
