Dead & Talking: A Porter & The Gliss Investigation 

by Des Burkinshaw

Synopsis:

If a ghost appeared from nowhere, rescued you from suicide and then ordered you to start solving crimes to help dead people, what would you do? When it happens to Porter Norton, he just wants to put his head in his hands and have nothing to do with it. But now he has to atone for the family curse that has seen all the men die at their own hands for five generations. The Gliss, the sarcastic spirit that rescues him, says he can now and see and hear the Dead – if he’s close to their remains. Porter has to use his unwelcome gift to clear up past injustices. Or else. Forced to investigate the murder of a WW1 British Tommy executed for spying in 1917, he begins to suspect the case has links to his own family history. Along the way, Porter enlists the help of a bickering group of misfits, who struggle to stay involved – because only fools believe in the supernatural, don’t they? Full of pop culture references, banter and twists, the story takes us from present-day London and Flanders to scenes from World War 1. As Porter, The Gliss, and friends, get deeper into the explosive case, they discover their own lives and sanity are at stake. An evil from WW1 pursues them all.

 

Christie’s Review

4 STARS

 

Dead & Talking promises to be a great series! It has a bit of everything, wicked humor, mystery, and the supernatural!

Porter is on the brink of losing his sanity, and he has decided to end it all by taking his life. He just figures he is following in the steps of his cursed family in which almost all his relatives have committed suicide. Imagine his surprise when a spirit appears and puts an end to his plan, saving his life. That was probably one of my favorite scenes. The spirit that calls itself The Gliss informs Porter he must atone for his family’s sins by solving past injustices. This is the beginning of one heck of a ride, alternating between the present and WWI. 

Porter’s first step is solving the murder that occurred in 1917. Porter gets some aid from a band of misfits, and this is where a lot of the comedy comes in. Porter is a complex character. In the beginning, he is at the end of his rope and his sanity. He was rather sad, and he does grow exponentially by the end of the chapter. He is cynical and sarcastic, and when he and The Gliss are together, it’s pretty hysterical. 

I was so glad to hear that this is only the first book in a series! I’m really looking forward to the team of Porter and The Gliss!!!!

Author Bio 

Dead and Talking - DES DARK

 

Born in the middle of the Summer of Love on a pre-fab council estate in Luton, teenage bitterness and a chance viewing of the Watergate movie, All the President’s Men, made him vow to become a journalist and bring down the government. 

First he had to pay for his journalism course, so he became a civil servant. Literally the day he had enough for his fees, he packed it in.
Twelve years on from watching the film, he was a journalist at The Times and had a big hand in bringing down John Major’s government. News ambitions sated, he packed that in too. 

Several years of working for Channel 4, ITV and the BBC as a senior producer saw him working across the world, but he eventually got fed up with asking bands how the new album was coming along, and packed it in. 

He set up his own production company magnificent! in 2002 and simultaneously worked on the BBC Live Events team for another 10 years. But then six years of work on the Olympics came along, so he packed the BBC in. Again. 

Des has jammed with many of his heroes from Paul McCartney to Brian Wilson, Queen to Nancy Sinatra. He has interviewed many A-listers, including David Bowie, Michael Caine, John Cleese and even Noam Chomsky. 

He has directed/produced a fairly long list of people – Muse, Coldplay, Michael Jackson, Jay-Z, produced BBC3’s Glastonbury coverage for a couple of years, made films about leprosy in India, comedy shorts with Miranda Hart and Lenny Henry and played guitar for Chas and Dave at the Hackney Empire. 

He has made 300+ short films for the Queen, MI5, the BBC, Sky, Discovery, EMI, the British Academy and dozens of authorities, charities and private sector firms. His most recent publication was a series of interviews with leading academics like Mary Beard on the state of the humanities which was published as a standalone magazine by the British Academy.

Fed up with travelling and determined to be a half-decent dad, he now works in London as often as he can. He runs the Young Directors Film School making movies with young people and is about to head up the Digital Film and Video MA at Tileyard. An avid musician and producer, he releases his third album as Romano Chorizo (he plays drums, bass, piano, guitar and really bad sax). 

He hates to be pigeon-holed, thinks creativity is a learned state of mind and wishes they would teach people memory and learning techniques at school. 

Dead & Talking is his first novel, the first in a series of Porter & The Gliss investigations.

New Review: One Little Lie by Whitney Barbetti

9 Jul

New Release: One Little Lie by Whitney Barbetti

One Little Lie by Whitney Barbetti

Genre: New Adult

Designer: Najla Qamber Designs

Blurb:

Adam Oliver hated me. Loathed my very existence. He had every right to, but that didn’t make my life any easier the afternoon I had to rescue him on the side of the road.

But worse than rescuing a guy who hated me to his core was the lie I told my parents.

Because I’d just told them that my long-term boyfriend was finally back in town.

My long-term boyfriend who didn’t actually exist.

The one named Adam Oliver—the guy I’d crushed on all through high school.

So the real Adam had no idea that he and I were engaged in a years-long, committed, serious relationship.

And, somehow, some way, I needed to convince him to play along with my one little lie.

 

Danielle’s Review

4 STARS

This is my first read by this author and I really liked it. While I have heard lots about her over the past few years, this blurb finally made me take the leap. The story starts off a little slow for me but once the story got going, I was hooked.
Hollis has had a crush on Adam for a long time even though he has never seemed to like her and now that high school is nearly over, she tries to make a connection with him at a party. She is finally breaking through the wall between them when an incident happens and Adam is back to hating Hollis. A few years later, Hollis is feeling pressure from her parents to get serious with someone and start looking towards marriage. One little lie later, Hollis needs help from Adam who is back in town after leaving right after graduation. She is able to convince him to help her but how much is that one little lie going to cost her? Will she ever be able to make Adam see she is not the enemy he believes her to be?
I really liked both characters and could see how the misunderstandings between them could happen. However, I was at times frustrated with Adam’s expectations of Hollis. I liked the ending and will definitely continue with this series with other characters to hopefully revisit Adam and Hollis to see what the future holds for them. Overall a great read and I look forward to reading more from this author!

Le Tour de Love

by Lilac Mills

Synopsis

“…the opportunity of a lifetime.”

When physiotherapist Molly Matthews is offered a dream job by a guy who shaves his legs and has an obsession with his bicycle, she has serious doubts about accepting. But, as she keeps telling herself, it’s the opportunity of a lifetime and she’ll never get another chance like this. So, she does what anyone in her position would do – she agrees to join a professional cycling team for the most prestigious race in the cycling world – The Tour de France. The reality, though, isn’t exactly what she had anticipated; instead of eating out at restaurants in pretty French villages and spending her free time lounging around the hotel pool, Molly finds herself living out of a suitcase for three weeks, massaging eight pairs of sweaty legs, administering ice baths and treating saddle sores.And neither did she anticipate falling for a gorgeous, passionate, professional rider by the name of Alexander Duvall…

Fall in love with France with this glorious summer read!

Christie’s Review

4 STARS

 

I can add this enjoyable book to my list of great summer reads!!!! 

I got to travel to France and watch a great couple fall in love…that was a win-win situation for me! Molly is a physiotherapist who is very talented in what she does. When new patient, Alex, walks in, she has no idea how much he will change her life. He offers her a dream job she can’t refuse. She will get the opportunity to travel the world as part of Alex’s professional cycling team. Her first stop is The Tour de France! 

Molly and Alex have no intention of falling in love. Molly has her career and life back home. Alex doesn’t have time for a relationship. He needs to focus all of his attention on cycling. Yet, the two manage to do what they said they wouldn’t…fall in love. The road to happiness won’t be easy, especially when others intervene. 

This is just a great romance. Yes, it happens over a shorter amount of time, yet it feels so right. They don’t rush into anything physical, but they connect in such a deep way that just made my heart melt. 

Molly and Alex are both such great characters. Each of them have their own careers and independence yet they respect each other, and I loved the friendship that developed between them as well. It was a great foundation to a great romance. 

If you are looking for a great summer read, you can’t go wrong with this one!!!!

FFY - BT banner.jpg

Falling For You, an all-new sexy and emotional brother’s best friend romance from Jennifer Van Wyk is available now!

JVW_FallingforYou_ebook

Fake it ‘til you make it has been the motto I live by since my mother died.

I’m also doing a really bad job at the making it part.

The night we met, I was at my lowest.

But you gave me a reason to feel happy again.

For the first time in over a year, I feel optimistic.

You and I? We’re the same.

Don’t form attachments. Follow the rules. Don’t dream of a future.

Too bad our hearts wouldn’t listen.

And this storm we’re going through?

The one that threatens to rip us apart?

It doesn’t care that I’m falling for you.

Falling For You is a different kind of brother’s best friend romance and is as emotional

as it is sizzling.




 

Add a heading (4)

 

Super cute story!!

It was always just Chloe and her mom, no other family to depend on. When Chloe’s mom passed away, she was feeling a little more alone in the world. Even though she found out she had a half brother right before her mom died, she didn’t know how to reach out. But she met a stranger one night in a bar who would change everything for her.

Rex’s parents and brother were horrible to him and after trying and failing at love, Rex didn’t do attachments any more. But one night at the bar where he worked, he saw a distraught, yet beautiful woman who he felt drawn to help.

Will Rex and Chloe learn how to trust in love again?

This story is full of the feels and I loved it! Rex and Chloe are perfect together! Their personalities complimented each other so much and there was plenty of chemistry between them. It was super sweet how they spent time getting to know each other before moving forward in their relationship. Most of the characters in this book are very likeable and I am definitely looking forward to more from this author.

Excerpt:

“Rex?”

“Hmm?”

He won’t look at me. His grip on the steering wheel so tight his knuckles are turning white. He swallows so hard I can hear the gulp from where I’m sitting next to him.

When I lay a hand on his forearm he almost jumps out of his seat.

“You okay?”

“Fine,” he croaks.

“You don’t sound fine.”

I almost start giggling because if I’m reading the situation correctly, he’s nervous about having sex with me. Or, maybe, just what my intentions are. Rex, the sexy bartender that every single female in town lusts over and many have slept with — which I refuse to think about — is hesitating.

I know he wants to.

His body language, actions and words have told me as much.

When he kisses me, it’s real. It sounds simple, because it is. I’ve kissed other men. He’s kissed other women. But it’s never been like this for me. And I know it’s never been like this for him, either.

I know that might make me sound arrogant or overconfident, but I’m not clueless. Nor am I insecure. His feelings toward me are obvious, he’s not hiding it in any way, and unless he’s the most devious person in the world, I think he’s just as turned on by my presence as I am with his. Which is at holy shit levels, if I’m being honest.

I’m in a dang near constant state of arousal around him.

We pull into my driveway and he cuts the engine. His left leg is propped against the door and aside from the constant tapping of his thumb against the steering wheel, he’s the picture of relaxation.

“Just gonna sit out here all night?” I ask, already sensing his hesitation to come inside. I can also see how badly he’s battling with himself right now.

To sex her.

Or not to sex her.

I think we’re on the same page here, though.

It’s just going to be fun messing with him a little bit.

He’s made it very clear that his past relationships have either ended horribly, by way of his brother, the ass, or by the night being over with.

He’s also hinted he would like to see where this thing between us is going to go.

For that to happen, we need to not have sex. At least not yet. Even though every molecule in my body is currently firing and screaming at me to HAVE SEX WITH THIS SEXY AS FUCK GUY ALREADY.

Okay, so maybe I’m not as secure in my decision as I thought but hey, I know he isn’t either.

I open my door and step down.

“Come on, you big baby. I don’t bite.” Then before I close the door I pop my head back through the opening, “Unless you want me to.” I slam the door and run up the few stairs to my front door, quickly unlock it, and rush inside.

I count to five and he’s already charging in after me.

“You think you’re so funny, don’t you? Teasing me like this?”

“Whatever do you mean?”

“I’m in your head, gorgeous. I know what you’re thinking.”

Enemies With Benefits by Roxie Noir Blog Tour with Review & Excerpt

17 May

EWB - BT banner.jpg

Enemies with Benefits, an all-new contemporary romance from Roxie Noir, is now live!

Enemies With Benefits Final

I don’t love him. I don’t even like him.
I just want him.

Eli Loveless was my nemesis from the first day of kindergarten until we graduated high school. Everything I did, he had to do better – and vice versa. The day he left town was the best day of my life.

Ten years later, the day he came back was the worst.

Now he’s my co-worker.

Grown-up Eli Loveless is sexy as sin. He’s hotter than asphalt in the summer. The irritating kid I once knew is gone, and he’s been replaced by a man with green eyes, perfect abs, and a cocky smile.

It’s bad that I want him.

It’s worse that he wants me back.

There are looks. There are smirks. There are smiles that make my panties burst into flame.

And then there’s a shared kiss that leads to the hottest night of my life.

This is no office romance. This is a five-alarm fire.

What’s a girl to do when the man I can’t stand is the one I can’t stop lusting after?

Enter into a friends-with-benefits agreement, of course.

No dates. No relationship. Just blisteringly hot sex, because if there’s one person I could never fall for, it’s Eli.

…right?

Danielle’s Review

4 STARS

What a fun read!! I love the enemies to lovers trope and this book doesn’t disappoint!

 

Eli and Violet have been enemies since elementary school. Whatever one did, the other had to do even better. If either one ever showed a weakness, it was exploited to the max by the other. Upon graduation, both Eli and Violet head in different directions and are no longer at war with each other over everything. That is, until Eli returns to their small town 10 years later.
Now Eli and Violet are working together for the same company and the sparks fly immediately when they are back in each other’s presence. And as they say, there’s a thin line between love and hate and Eli and Violet are the perfect example. What starts as bickering and taking jabs at each other ends with a passionate kiss that neither can forget. Will these mortal enemies be able to leave the past in the past and embrace the attraction they feel towards each other now?
I loved this story!! There was plenty of heat in this story along with some sweet romance. Eli and Violet are great characters! I loved Eli’s brothers as well and hope they each get their own story as well. This is my first read by this author and I loved the writing style. I will definitely check out more books by her. Definitely recommend this book!

Excerpt:

Don’t let him get to you, I tell myself, but it’s a feeble attempt because he’s already gotten to me. Eli’s been getting to me since we were five years old, and platitudes aren’t going to help the situation now.

Just don’t do anything stupid, I tell myself, and that one seems much more reasonable. That one seems like something I can handle.

The door opens. I brace myself. If I had a shield right now I’d put it up.

“Violet?” Eli asks.

Goddamn it.

“Yes.”

“You okay?” he asks, for the second time in two minutes.

“I’m fine,” I say, all the pent-up anger and irritation leaning on that second word.

“I’m just checking,” he says, letting the door shut behind him. “You practically ran out of the brewery like you were going to vomit or have a heart attack or —”

“— or before I finally lose my shit with you in public for acting like I need dart-throwing lessons?”

“Well, you do,” he says.

“I don’t!” I say. “I don’t care about darts! I don’t care that I’m bad at it!”

Eli just laughs. Somehow, we’ve moved closer to each other, close enough that I can feel his laughter rippling through the night air.

“Liar,” he says. “You’re pissed that I’m better than you at something and you’re terrible at hiding it.”

“No,” I say, swallowing hard. “I’m pissed that you followed me out here to keep gloating.”

“I followed you out here to see if I should call an ambulance,” he says.

“Liar,” I say.

I could swear that neither of us is moving, but we keep getting closer by centimeters, degrees. My heart feels like it’s punching my ribcage, my pulse racing. I’m praying that he can’t hear it and that he can’t tell that I feel electrified, like if he touches me I’ll spark.

I’m furious, and I want him, and I’m furious that I want him.

“You think I wasn’t worried when you sprinted out of there?” he says, his low voice getting louder, irritation edging in.

“I didn’t sprint.”

“Do you really think I’m incapable of concern?” Eli asks, his jaw tensing, his eyes glinting, the dark making them gleam gray.

“Not incapable,” I say.

I look him dead in the eye. My heart seizes.

“So I’m not a total monster,” he says, eyes blazing, voice dangerous and low.

His anger’s so real that it’s almost palpable. I feel like I could reach out and grab it, wrestle it with my own.

“I didn’t say that.”

“But it’s what you think.”

His eyes flick to my lips again, like they did inside, only now they stay linger there like he can’t tear his gaze away.

Please, whispers my body.

Hell no, whispers my brain.

“Since when do you care what I think of you?”

“I don’t,” he says, and his mouth finds mine.

 

About Roxie:

I love writing sexy, alpha men and the headstrong women they fall for.

My weaknesses include: beards, whiskey, nice abs with treasure trails, sarcasm, cats, prowess in the kitchen, prowess in the bedroom, forearm tattoos, and gummi bears.

I live in California with my very own sexy, bearded, whiskey-loving husband and two hell-raising cats.

Retriever of Souls (The DI Sterling Series #1) by Lorraine Mace Blog Tour with Review

Retriever of Souls

Retriever of Souls

by Lorraine Mace

Synopsis:

Brought up believing that sex is the devil’s work, a killer only finds release once he has saved his victim’s souls. Abiding by his vision, he marks them as his. A gift to guide his chosen ones on the rightful path to redemption.

Detective Inspector Paolo Sterling is out to stop him, but Paolo has problems of his own. Hunting down the killer as the death toll rises, the lines soon blur between Paolo’s personal and professional lives.




Christie’s Review

4 STARS

This is one of those reviews in which I can’t reveal too much because I don’t want to spoil it for those who haven’t read it yet. Detective Inspector Paolo Sterling is after a sadistic killer who believes sex is the devil’s work. He is on a mission to rid the world of it by killing young women. He honestly believes he is doing God’s work. Sterling must stop him before he kills again.

 

What makes this procedural unique is that it is not only a murder mystery/thriller, but it delves deeply into the psyche of the killer and DI Sterling as well. That added a depth to the book that sometimes you don’t find in other procedurals. This is the first in a series, so I’m looking forward to reading the next book!

A Little Hotel in Cornwall by Laura Briggs Publication Day Push with Review

A Little Hotel in Cornwall

A Little Hotel in Cornwall

by Laura Briggs

Synopsis:

Struggling American waitress and aspiring novelist Maisie Clark dreams of becoming a full-time writer — even though in real life she’s just lost her chance at an exclusive writer’s mentorship program that would give her novel its big break. Desperate, she decides to take a chance and ask her favourite writer, a celebrated but reclusive English novelist, to help her find a second chance. 

When she receives the author’s reply in an envelope with a Cornish postmark, Maisie decides not to take the writer’s half-hearted ‘no’ for an answer. With nothing to lose, she takes off for the author’s last known location, a beautiful hotel on Cornwall’s western coast. But when the hotel mistakes her for the latest applicant for a maid’s position, Maisie finds herself given an opportunity too good to lose … and a chance for a summer adventure far bigger than she ever imagined.

Surrounded by breathtaking Cornwall and working in an elegant hotel, Maisie’s world becomes one of secret identities, quirky friends, and unintentional mishaps — and despite reminders of past relationship disasters, a certain handsome, charming local resident Sidney Daniels has her conflicted about her heart’s desires, too. 

Will Maisie find the chance she’s been waiting for — and a possible new romance — in her perfect Cornish summer?




Christie’s Review

4 STARS

A Little Hotel in Cornwall is the beginning of a new series of novellas that promise to be delightful!

I loved the fact that romance somewhat took a back seat in this book. This was the beginning of Maisie’s journey in discovering who she is and what direction she wants her life to go in. She is also quite likeable with a great sense of humor. I’m really looking forward to getting to know her better in future books.

This is a novella, but the writer didn’t leave anything out. Instead of short-changing her readers, she takes her time in developing the story and makes me really anticipate the next book in the series. On to top it off, she is a fabulous writer who wields magic with her words!!!!
