Model: Garrick Murdie  
 Release Date: January 11, 2016
Synopsis
Evelyn

I pray to be forgiven for my sins, but the prayers of someone like me won’t dare breach the edge of heaven.

Sins. All sins are equal in the eyes of God, but I’m not God. Some sins are far more wretched than others. And those sinners should pay, Evelyn. One sinner made me his sin, and I can’t let men like him live. They must face their judgement, Evelyn. I want to kill them. Every. Last. One.

Ezra James is no different, and I wanted to kill him, I needed to kill him, I’m was going to kill him…And then I found myself fascinated by him, obsessed and possessed in the most reverent of ways. I became his sinner, and he became my sin, but the wages of sin is death, so I must kill him.

Ezra

The son of a whore, raised by gangsters, moulded into a key player in a corrupt world ruled by money and completely without morals.

This world can break a person. I’ve seen it time and time again. I never gave a shit, until the night I watched a man drop dead at the feet of a woman so broken she made even me feel whole. My little killer called to my depravity and everything in me demanded that I take her, possess her, own her.

Some monsters hide behind the faces of angels, where others stand in plain sight.

Damned. Broken. Irredeemable.

Through blood, absolution shall be found.

Drugs, sex, and rock and roll—in that order—became his life.

River James, the drummer for Steel Total Destruction, loved the brotherhood he formed with his unlikely best friend and his band mates, and the family he found in his label until one tragic accident takes it all away in the blink of an eye. Twisted metal, shattered bones, crushed dreams, and torn wreckage causes deep, dark secrets to be revealed and he quickly turns to the sure things in life: drugs and women.

The first person in her family to graduate from high school and college, Keanna Sutton is flying high on her accomplishments. She has the career and man of her dreams…or so she thought. While recovering from a break-up she has a chance run-in with a tall, handsome, silver-tongued drummer who tests her strength and ability to hold her own tongue. She desperately tries to ignore the implausible attraction to River – a man she knows will be no good for her. When she finally throws caution to the wind, she finds herself getting rocked the only way a badass like River can: hard and nasty. Will the hottest night of her life end there? Or will she lose herself in a man whose only promise is that a lady always comes first?

~ Natexus by Victoria L James Release Blitz + Giveaway ~

31 Jan
Book: Natexus
Author: Victoria L James
Release Date: 31st January 2016
Genre: New Adult Romance

Synopsis


Seven breaths left in her chest, yet I looked back at him. He wasn’t meant to be there on the darkest night of my life, but the mysterious Alex Law continued to make a habit of showing up when I least expected him. With one look in his eyes, everything I’d ever been before him drifted away, and everything I was about to become revolved around him.

Grief threatened to ruin me no matter how hard I fought, and Alex had demons of his own to deal with, yet we found a comfort in each other’s pain. We found ourselves alone, two people becoming one. Just us. Natalie and Alex. Natexus. As long as we had each other, we thought we could make it through anything.

We didn’t know there were things out there waiting to destroy us: people we couldn’t escape, fates we couldn’t outrun and regrets we couldn’t avoid. Not all love stories go the same way, and ours was about to take a turn neither one of us could have foreseen. All I could do was stand by and watch as my world fell apart for a second time.

I knew there had been life before Alex Law.

I just had to figure out if there was life after him…

That beautiful, tragic first love of mine.

Abou the author

Victoria L James is a teenage girl stuck in a thirty-something year-olds body. Living somewhere ‘oop north’ in England, she has had a strong passion for words and stories going as far back as she can remember, which she credits to her grandmother and her love of reading anything that was on sale and cheap from the local market stall. Never once did she think she would release a novel, though. At best, she thought her love of language and her ability to create stories in her mind would provide her with a ‘get out of jail free’ card whenever she messed up and her parents were mad at her during her teenage years… and when even that didn’t work out, she thought she was pretty much done for.

When an opportunity presented itself for her to take a back seat from paid working life for a few years, she knew straight away that she had to try and write about a few of these worlds she’d come up with along the way, and quieten all the voices in her head without racking up a heavy psychiatry bill for the pleasure.

Wearing her heart on her sleeve and trying to lighten her friends’ and family’s lives with naff, and more often than not, badly timed, nineties jokes, she has yet to learn the art of knowing when to shut up. Which is another reason writing became a passion of hers. With pen and paper, there are no limits.

A firm believer in never quitting, with a ridiculous obsession for all things Rocky, she hopes that one day she writes a story that will inspire at least one person out there to keep on going if they’re struggling. Other than that, she’s just a regular old converse wearing, corona sipping, English version of Chandler Bing, who loves and adores her family more than life itself. Oh, and she also has two cats. Every writer has to mention their cats, right?

michele review 5 star a

This book…… I don’t even know where to begin. Bella Jewel rips you to shred as you read Lucas and Ava’s story. She guts you, but slowly, she starts to sew you back together. I don’t know how many times I had tears in my eyes because of all the pain and suffering these two went through.

I don’t even know what to say that won’t spoil this book for those who haven’t read it. I mean, Lucas and Ava are from two completely different worlds that, under any other circumstances, would never come together. Lucas the cop and Ava, the daughter of the MC President, not the best pair as I’m sure you can see. However, the trauma that these two go through, it what brings them closer than they ever would have imagined. Their connection is strong and the heat between them stronger, but there are many things that stand in their way.

Lucas lost the most important person in the world to him and it destroyed the man he used to be. Then there’s Ava, she went through a horrific event that most people would never have come out of alive. Through their gaping wounds, they find a way to heal. They find a way to break through the surface instead of drowning in their pain and sorrow.

Finding a way to happiness isn’t going to be easy for these two. The past is coming to get them, and there’s now way from stopping the pain that is coming. The question remains, will these two be able to over come the pain and come out stronger and happier than ever? Or does the past and everything else take them away and they drown?

I’ve read and loved other books by Bella Jewel, and this one wasn’t any different. I can’t say enough on how much I enjoyed this story. Bella does such a spectacular job of giving you a story with feeling and connecting you to her characters. Like I said, this story rips you to shreds, but I promise Bella puts you back together in the end. Great story Bella! I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next in this series.

Synopsis

Ash

Despite everything I’ve done for my parents, I’ll never
be good enough for them. Instead of seeing a man to be proud of, they just see
an embarrassment. I served four tours in Afghanistan but that doesn’t mean
anything to them. They only see the ink, the party life, and my short stint in
jail.
 
And nothing else.
 
When they were in trouble, I handed over my life savings.
I didn’t think twice about it because they’re my family, my blood. They raised
me to be my own man and gave me everything I needed. It didn’t matter that it
was every penny I had. It didn’t matter that the money was set aside for my
future. My dreams.
 
Because they needed me.
 
But now they refuse to pay me back until I become the man
they think I should be.
 
Alessandra

I have an unusual professional.
 
I escort men, acting as their date to family functions or
work parties. It’s my job to act deeply in love with my client. And I always
nail it.
 
But it’s not what you think.
 
I’m not a prostitute.
I’m not a call girl.
I’m an actress.
Get it right.
 
There are strict rules when it comes to my profession.
There is no touching, kissing, or anything but hand-holding. Those who choose
not to comply will get a swift kick in the nuts.
 
But all this goes to hell when Ash walks into my life.

Author Interview

Do you have a favorite book to movie adaptation?

The Lord of The Rings Trilogy. Those movies are so awesome, and those books are also awesome. The movies deviate from the books a few times, but they were stunning anyway. I know it’s not romance, unless you count Arwen and Aragorn, but it’s still a great movie.
What is the one place you would love to travel to?Greece. I’ve always been interested in Greek mythology and to be immersed in that ancient world would be the coolest thing ever. Every picture I see looks breathtaking. And I bet it’d inspire me to write another book. =)

Do you read much, and if so, who are your favorite authors?
Do I read much??? Haha! You’re funny.

So, I’m in love with a lot of different authors. Aurora Rose Reynolds is one of my top picks. I lived her Until Series, and I’ve reread some of her books. I also love Georgia Cates. I read her Beauty From Pain Series twice. That was pretty amazing. The Filthy Billionaire Trilogy by Meghan March was awesome. I love her writing style. She writes amazing smut, but she writes it so well. I just read Big Rock by Lauren Blakely. Ah-Maz-Ing. I could go on forever so I’ll shut my mouth now.

What was the hardest scene you have ever had to write? In one of my books, The Forever and Always Series, the hero is stabbed in an alleyway. He gets to the hospital to be treated but he’s lost so much blood and a few of his organs are lacerated. His wife is in the waiting room, terrified she may never see her husband again. The hero starts coding and he isn’t going to survive. But then the two of them have a supernatural moment, when their souls unite together and somehow give him the strength to live. I don’t write paranormal stuff, so that was a different twist. And to write a scene where one member of the relationship may lose their spouse…is difficult.

How long does it take to find the RIGHT cover for your books?

Not too long. I have a really great photographer, Sara Eirew, and she has new photos literally every single day so there’s a lot to choose from. And sometimes I’ll just talk to her about my book and she’ll find something that fits it perfectly, like magic. **Waves wand around like Harry Potter**

What have you found the most challenging in writing your books?

Writing alpha males that are strong and possessive, but not so borderline that they come off as a jerk. I struggled with that for Into The Fire, but Ash ended up turning out to be lovable and adorable while also being cocky and sometimes arrogant. i think readers will like him.

christie review
4 starsInto the Fire was a quick paced, sexy romance. Ash is a war vet who has a dream to open his own tattoo shop. Unfortunately, his parents won’t give him the money back he loaned them until he shows them he is settling down, preferably with a wife and kids. Now, he needs to find one to convince his parents he is being more responsible. But, where will he find this perfect woman? This is where the beautiful Alessandra enters the picture. She’s an escort, but not that kind. She just poses as her clients’ girlfriend…nothing more. When the two meet, there’s an instant attraction. But, he doesn’t do relationships, and Alessandra doesn’t date her clients. Their arrangement should be ideal, right? Nope…as the two continue spending time together to convince his parents that they are dating, they find that they actually like each other, but if sex enters the picture, how will that change? Because you just know once Ash gets you into his bed, all bets are off!!

I must admit I was not a fan of Ash. He was arrogant and self-centered. He knew he was sexy, and I like self-confidence in a man, but he came across with a massive ego. Now, I will admit I enjoyed his naughty mouth, but I swear there were times I wanted to slap the crap out of him, but Alessandra put him in his place quick. Oh, she knew he was hotter than he**, but she let him think he was definitely not her type. I loved seeing her bring Ash down to his knees, and finally, when she did, I ended up liking Ash.

There was a good bit of angst and drama in the book, but there had to be just because of Ash’s personality. The man is so stubborn even when a great thing is standing right in front of him. I, myself, like angst and drama in my romances. I like a love you have to work for, and these two really had to work to attain their HEA. I enjoyed reading the book. It was a fast read. The only thing I thought could have been different was that at times, the story was too fast paced. But, I loved the romance, and I am looking forward to reading more in the series.

Sophia Vasco
Will he ever forgive me? This question haunts me every day and night. He branded me with his touch to the point that no other man will ever compare.
Dominic consumed my life. Until the day he learned the truth about me and everything changed. Nothing is as it seems and it has all spiraled out of control. The weight of the world now rests on my shoulders.
I have to fix this.

christie review 4 and a half stars

Her Dom’s Lesson is the second book in the Dominic Powers Series. While I enjoyed the first book in the series, I enjoyed reading this one even more. Once I started, I couldn’t put it down until I was finished. It picks up pretty much where the first book ended with a betrayal…or really is it a betrayal? It might look that way on the surface, but once the layers are peeled away, will Dom really let Sophia go without a fight? Read on to find out! I don’t want to give you readers more…I don’t want to ruin this great series for anybody.

The book is written from both Dom and Sophia’s POVs which I love because I like knowing what both of the characters were thinking. It made me feel like a trusted confidante. The chemistry between the two is still sizzling, but there is a more of a softness to Dom’s hard edges. I really got a glimpse into his heart which yeah he’s a master alpha and dom, but he is a man with a good heart too. I was glad to see more of the spitfire side of Sophia too! Of course, I love seeing my Steele men again from the Steele Series. (On a side note, if you haven’t read the Steele Series, you really should)!

There are some amazingly hot sex scenes, but the mystery and intrigue is just as good! There are so many layers of unexpected twists. After one layer is revealed, I thought I had it figured out, but I didn’t. I truly didn’t see that twist at the end. Her Dom’s Lesson is more than just an erotic read with BDSM elements, it’s an awesome romantic suspense! Another great job from A.D. Justice!
