Synopsis

This is a STANDALONE dark(ish) erotic romance with insta-obsession between two damaged soulmates(no cheating-HEA-no cliffhanger)

Hannah

All my life, I’ve only wanted one thing: someone to love me and someone who will let me love them in return. This seems like a simple request, but I was born to parents who wished I had died of childhood leukemia, instead of my younger sister, and who have ignored me no matter how much I’ve tried to please them. I’m starved for affection, addicted to the feeling when someone cares about me, which has led to a love life filled with either boys I’ve scared off, or men all too eager to take advantage of me. I thought I would never find a man who could feed my craving for constant attention–and then I met Leo. He fills the void inside of me, haunts my dreams, and does things to me in bed that are so good, they’re probably illegal. I can only pray I don’t scare him off once he figures out just how needy I really am.

Leo

There are very few people in this world I’ve ever been able to form an emotional attachment to, but the moment I saw Hannah, I knew she was mine. We were bound together by fate, our paths crossing first as children, then as adults, each time marking me. She doesn’t know it but I’ve been watching her for a year now, studying her, stacking the deck so when I do make my move, there’s no way she’ll ever escape me. But my world is a harsh, cruel place, and the cartel I work for demands absolute loyalty and trust…a loyalty Hannah has yet to earn in the dangerous eyes of my employers. There is only one way to ensure Hannah’s absolute devotion, and I hope that she doesn’t hate me forever when she finds out that not only have I brainwashed her into loving me, but that I don’t feel an ounce of guilt about doing it. She’s mine, only mine, and I’m keeping her forever.

Warning: This story features a rough and demanding Dom who’s completely devoted to bringing his baby girl pleasure through such unconventional means as spanking, mild BDSM, D/S, roleplaying, and various other forms of wicked kinkery.

AboutTheAuthor

With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she’s been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.

From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she’s never looked back.

Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her ‘sexy space’ and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.

Shadow of a Girl by Shannon Greenland

Publication Date: September 19, 2016

Publisher: Entangled Teen

 

 

Use cash and keep moving.

After I ran away from home, these were the two rules that dictated my life. Scoring a job as a roadie fit perfectly for what I needed. Traveling, cash, and life out of the spotlight. But when my path collides with West, the lead singer of Bus Stop, I can’t seem to stay out of his spotlight—especially since we’ll be touring together for an entire year.

West is determined to break down my walls. He won’t give up. And little by little they come crumbling. But if he knew what lurked behind them, he wouldn’t be so eager to get rid of them.

The more time we spend together, the more the lines of our friendship become blurred. He makes me dream of things I never thought possible. But while our friendship has been evolving into a romance, my secrets have been closing in. And just when I’ve decided to reveal my past to West, I’m confronted by it. The cost of my freedom could ruin the life of the guy I love…

 

My Review 

Shadow of a Girl by Shannon Greenland is a very captivating story. I was hooked right from the beginning. When I started the book, I wasn’t even sure what was going on, there is a little bit of a mystery element. Eve, not her real name, (but with the help of a friend) needed to leave an abusive home. Her friend Bluma helped her the best she could.

I really felt the writing of this story is fantastic. I was intrigued throughout the whole story. The way the author portrayed Eve and how strong she is and the courage it took for her to do what she needed to do.

The next main Character, West who is the lead singer in the band that Eve is a roadie for, took an interest in her. Something about her captivated his attention, she wasn’t like all the other girls who throw themselves on him. I really loved how the author made him out to be more than just a shallow rock star but someone who has emotions and is also not immune from things that has happened in his past.  He really tries to find out what is going on with her but she still can’t talk about her past.

Wow is pretty much how I want to sum this up. Yes, there is mention of abuse and also there is an ending. This book is intense but there is good as well.  This is a five-star book.

I would love to see a 2nd book on what happens to Eve and West.

I want to thank the Author Shannon Greenland for writing this book. I also want to thank Chapter by Chapter Tours for have a blog tour of this book and Netgalley for providing this book.

I did receive this book in exchange for an honest review.

CRUSHING ON LOVE by Melissa Foster #BookReview @TastyBookTours @Melissa_Foster

A Sexy Mountain Man with a BIG Ax….Meet “Grizz”!

 

CRUSHING ON LOVE
The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor #4
Melissa Foster
Releasing Sept 21st, 2016
World Literary Press

 

Steve Johnson is living his life’s passion watching over the Colorado Mountains as a ranger and wildlife consultant. But his peaceful life is upended when overzealous and insanely beautiful Shannon Braden flits back into his life after returning from a brief trip home to Maryland. He thought his attraction to her was under control—after all, she’s only in Colorado temporarily, and he doesn’t do casual affairs.

Shannon’s return to Colorado has as much to do with the game of cat and mouse she and Steve have been playing as it does the data she’s been hired to collect. But despite her efforts to explore the undeniable heat simmering between them, Steve’s intent on keeping his distance.

When a ranch abutting the national park goes up for sale, Steve will do whatever it takes to keep it from falling into the wrong hands. And when all his attempts fail, he’s left with no alternative but to follow Shannon’s guidance into the online world he abhors in order to raise the funds. The more time they spend together, the deeper their attraction becomes, and a game of cat and mouse turns into an unstoppable connection. But when Shannon’s assignment comes to an end, will it mean an end to them, too?

Review-Banner

I love reading series of books. I love getting to know the characters in a story. This one about Shannon and Steve was fun to read.  I really loved the plot, the story of Shannon and Steve. Shannon was in Colorado doing some field research. Shannon had met Steve at her cousin’s wedding and decided to go back and see if there were any sparks. I thought the story started kind of slow. Even though this is part of a series and can be read alone I had a little trouble remembering how all the people fit in. That isn’t really important though. I think it is just me. I thought Shannon was sweet happy go lucky type of gal. Steve who works as a ranger and loves his solitude in the mountains wasn’t too excited to see her come back to his mountain to work.  Then again he was very happy to see her. As I kept reading the story, I loved how the story went. I loved the detail of the story. The characters Shannon and Steve worked well. I also thought how they came together to work on a project that was so important to Steve and he was amazed at how good Shannon did to organize the event and make something happen that Steve never thought could. I don’t like to give away the plot. For me this was a good happy book. A Sweet romance, with lots of steamy romance.  I also want to mention I love the nicknames. So perfect!!

The author Melissa Foster does well with writing this series and leaves me wanting to read more. I have read a few others and I do love the character’s.

I want to thank Tasty Book Tours and Melissa Foster for the ARC.

Jamison by Niquel #ReleaseBlitz #SalesBlitz @AuthorNiquel @EJBookPromos

Title: Jamison
Series: Spasm Rockers #1
Author: Niquel
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: September 21, 2016
Some people call it puppy love,

 

But I know the truth.

 

Even though we were kids, too young to know better,
I knew.
I was absolutely head-over-heels in love with Cody Jamison.
There wasn’t a moment in my life that he wasn’t a part of.
There wasn’t a part of me that didn’t belong to him.
And just as I was about to tell him…
He left.
Left town.
Left me.
Shattering my heart into pieces.
But now, he’s back.
Just like that.
But, we’re no longer those bright-eyed little kids we once were.
He just re-emerged,
Claiming a spot as the lead guitarist in my brother’s band,
As if nothing ever changed.
But it did.
Everything’s different now.
And I won’t let this asshole strum his way back in,
Reclaiming my heart,
Not without an explanation.
He’s going to have to work for it,
For me.
Cody Jamison can’t have me,
Until I have the truth.




“Oh my!!! This book was amazing.” ~Paula, 5 Star Goodreads Review


“This book will take you on an awesome roller coaster of emotions from the very beginning to the last page.” ~Victoria, 5 Star Goodreads Review


“This is my first book by author Niquel, but it definitely will not be my last! I absolutely loved the story of Cody (CJ) and Shannon!” ~Penny, 5 Star Goodreads Review

“Oh my God, Shan, quit being a wuss!”


“I can’t, it’s too high!” I yelled down at my brother, who was safe on the ground. I don’t know why I let him talk me in to doing stupid things like this.

“C’mon, Shanny, just put your foot in the holes and jump when you get to the last one,” CJ egged on.

Anytime he was around and asked me to do something, the fear inside of me went away. “Okay.”

One.
Two.
Three.
“Ouch!”

“Holy crap, are you all right?” My brother asked, as the sky spun behind his and CJ’s heads.
“My head hurts really bad.”

“Dang, I’ll go and get Mom. Can you stay with her, CJ?” He nodded his head, and then helped me sit up. He kept looking at me funny with his eyes; eyes that were the color of chocolate. 
“Why are you looking at me like that?”

“I was looking at the small dots across your face. What are they?”
I placed my hands over my face, and rubbed my cheeks, wishing they would come off. “My mommy calls them ‘freckles’ and I hate them.”
“Why?”
“Because people are always teasing me about them. Mom said I got them from being in the sun too much.” 
“So let’s call them sun kisses! The sun loved your face so much, it left little kisses behind.”
I giggled so hard, that it made my head hurt more. CJ was almost thirteen, like my older brother, but he made me feel fuzzy inside.

Synopsis: He’s Paxton Wilder.Twenty-two-year-old, tattooed, smoking-hot leader of the Renegades.

Five time X Games medalist.

The world is his playground—especially this year—and for the next nine months I’m stuck as his tutor on the Study at Sea program.

He’s too busy staging worldwide stunts for his documentary to get to class.

But if I can’t get him to take academics seriously, I’ll lose my scholarship…if I don’t lose my heart first.

Six unlikely friends on a nine-month cruise with the Study at Sea program will learn that chemistry is more than a subject and the best lessons aren’t taught in the classroom…but in the heart.

Excerpt

“If you need to study, you’re right, you’ll be doing it here, because I’m not going anywhere near those cameras unless I have to.”
My muscles relaxed as I realized she wasn’t going to renege on our deal and not tutor me. “I understand.”
“Okay then. Do you have your schedule so I know what classes you have?”
“I have every class you do.”
Her mouth dropped open. “How is that even possible?”
“I needed to know you could help me, or take notes if I had to miss class.” Because I engineered it that way.
“Did you sleep with the registrar or something? How did you make that happen? You know what? I don’t even want to know. We have seminar at nine a.m. tomorrow. Do you think you can make it? Or were you planning on waterskiing behind the ship or something?”
“That’s not even…” Huh. I wondered if it was possible.
Maybe if the rope was long enough, and we launched from—
“Unbelievable. No wonder you need a tutor. You’ve killed off all your brain cells doing stupid crap. Tell me something—are you just here for the Renegade Channel?”
My eyes widened. “I thought you didn’t know who I was?”
She rolled hers. “Come on. We’re still close enough to port to have good internet, and there’s not a lot of Paxton Wilders running around. Google is pretty nifty with the whole search thing.”

I swallowed. How much did she know? “What did it tell you?”
“That you run a YouTube channel with a few friends who all have ridiculous stage names, you’ve won a couple X Game medals in motocross or snowmobiling or something.”
“Both,” I answered automatically.
“Great. You enjoy flinging yourself off mountains and buildings and generally see exactly what it would take to kill yourself, and I’m responsible for getting you through this academic year while you’re doing it all over the world, right?”
Fuck. She put it together so quickly. “What makes you think that?”
“Well, I doubt those hugely expensive cameras are here to document some boring reality show featuring your academics center stage, so the only plausible explanation is that you’re here to take your little channel international. Or is it bigger?”
“Bigger,” I answered truthfully. “Some of the things we have planned aren’t exactly legal in the U.S., so it seemed to be a great time to shoot the documentary. What else did you learn?”
“That you prefer leggy blondes who have a disproportionate ratio of breast to waist. Which is fine with me; I’m sure there’s a full treasure trove here to select from, and I’m safe since I don’t fit any of that criteria.”
“Whoa, when did I even hint—?”
She threw her palms out. “You didn’t. I just figured I’d get ahead of you. Look, you almost killed me, dumped me into a huge pool, and now I’m stuck with you if I want to stay on this trip. I understand what I signed up for. But I will not be involved in anything you do—like I was today—ever again. You and I are business only, got it?”
I nodded slowly. “Got it.” What the fuck just happened?
“Good. Now you can leave. I’ll see you at seminar in the morning.” She walked to the door and held it open until I left her room, closing the door behind me with a loud click.
I was halfway to my room before I started laughing. Little Eleanor Baxter had done the one thing no other girl had done in my lifetime—dismissed me outright.
I knew I liked her for a reason.
