After the torment of her childhood, Taya believes in love for everyone … except herself. Some things can’t be untaught.

Beautiful and tough, yet the most private woman anyone has ever met, Taya knows everyone has a past, yet she doesn’t share hers. Her past must remain behind her for her sanity and so the only man she has ever loved will move on with someone who hasn’t been destroyed by those who were supposed to protect her.

Then a threat has her past storming back in and taking over.

After looking into the big, baby blue eyes of the deranged little orphan who was dragged, kicking and screaming, into his home, Levi is determined to be the boy who will teach Taya that not every offered hand will betray her.

Playful and gorgeous, Levi’s first passion is the girl who consumes his heart. His second is serving his country, following in his father’s footsteps. When Levi is deployed overseas, he encourages Taya to spread her wings and pursue her dreams, hoping she will come back to her roots and the man who is waiting for her.

Levi is mistaken.

Taya can’t change who she is and has built a life for herself far away from the only man she will ever love.

Can Levi convince Taya their relationship is worth the fight? Can he force her to overcome her fears and let him in completely? Can Levi prove his love is the freedom she has been searching for?

Levi allowed Taya to control their relationship in the past, but now things have changed. He is taking control back, with or without her consent.



Review



Anne Marie Citro has characterization down to a science. Her characters really run the show and make the story so fun to read about. 

This was a very emotional read that kept me engaged the entire way through. There were surprises along the way that definitely shocked me. Anything but predictable. 

Great pacing and a well written storyline. I look forward to reading more from Citro in the future.

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png


Amelia Waters has accepted her destiny and is determined to find Aaron no matter what it takes. As she treks forward on her quest, she embarks on a gloomy, foul-smelling creation that is very similar to a dream she once had. The moment she sets foot to ground, she runs for her life as horrific creatures pour out of every dark shadow. With her life in grave danger, Amelia finds it difficult to stay hopeful on finding Aaron, until an ever-changing ally opens her eyes and helps her see that there is more to the creation than she thinks. Amelia makes it her mission to destroy the creation along with its creator. But her ever ready task comes with a colossal cost she’s not ready for.

Review

This was a fresh and exciting Young Adult novel. It was unlike others that are flooding the market right now.  I loved Amelia's character and how strong she was after having to overcome so much. She was such a powerful female lead. 

The writing was superb. Everything from the setting and imagery to the flow and the timing of the suspense was well done. It was a novel that kept me engaged the entire way through.

Last thing, this book cover is absolutely beautiful!

YA Romance
Date Published: June 14, 2015
Publisher: Writer’s Tree Publishing

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png


After losing both of her parents through a horrible fight, fifteen-year-old Amelia Waters gets trapped into staying with her mysterious aunt Leona and two cousins. It is then where they completely dominate her life and force her to move away from her home in Stillwater, Oklahoma to Columbia, Missouri. This usually upbeat and witty teenager is now suicidal and depressed as she’s forced into their world of hatred. If she tries to flee or escape she has been reassured that her beloved grandparents will be killed immediately. The moment she settles into her petrifying reality, Amelia becomes bombarded with nightmares about the past that reveals a terrible crime. With her back against the wall and no way out, Amelia gains a few unexpected allies that help her overcome her worst enemy—her aunt Leona. They give her the strength she needs to fight and take back the life that was stolen from her. But what Amelia didn’t plan on was to fall in love with Aaron—a mesmerizing boy from her dreams. Every nerve in her body gravitates to him as they fall deeper in love. But slowly Amelia begins to realize that nothing was ever just a coincidence and there is something far greater and dangerous in store for her.

Release Blitz: Valentine's Dragon Style




Title: Valentine's Dragon Style ( The Sanguenna Chronicles #2 )
Author: Serena Akeroyd
Genre: Fantasy, Romance 










Georgios has a past.
In fact, he has more than a past. It's a doozy of a heritage. With a murderer in the family and a mate stirring in the other realm, the last thing Ios needs is to continue a lineage that has messed with the fertility of all dragonkind.
But...
There's always a but, right?
Lara is... Well, to be frank, she's his. Still, to save her from him, he'll fight the mate bond. Do what he must to keep her safe because, when it boils down to it, she's the only thing that matters.
Of course, there has to be a spanner in the works. Namely, it's Lara. A Vampire with bigger balls than most guys, and his citrus fruit... Okay, okay, leman. 
Destined to be together, this cellphone-loathing Dragon has no choice but to embrace a world where women like having their boobs squished into torture devices called bras, bowls aren't just regular-sized but Super, and roses are a declaration of true love.
If they can make it past the problems with his heritage, they're on course for a happily-ever-after, but when a Dragon has courted mischief for centuries, trouble was always going to come knocking on his door.
Can they make it past the mistakes they've both made to finally be together? Or will his history and hers be the wrecking ball to hopes and dreams neither had dared have until they were in one another's arms?
Book two in The Sanguenna Chronicles is a sexy stand-alone novel, coming in at just under 60k words. Prepare yourself for giggles and sighs--Ios is a hottie!!

Title: Spark
Author: S.L. Scott
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: RBA Designs
Release Date: February 22, 2018



Blurb

One break is all The Crow Brothers need and we’re about to get it.

Johnny Outlaw, rock legend and lead singer of The Resistance, is here to watch us play. But he’s not the only familiar face in the crowd—killer little body, heart-shaped face, and drop-dead gorgeous.

Hannah Nichols sitting at the bar makes it hard to concentrate, sparks already reigniting. The beauty was never a groupie and tonight she’s not here to catch our show. She came to drop a bomb. “You have a son.”

She underestimated me. I’ll prove to my son, and her, that I can be the dad he needs.

What is it about musicians? Why are they so damn sexy?

My heart was Jet Crow’s the moment he opened his sexy mouth and sang that first song. One stolen night with that man would never be enough, but I’m not here to fall into his bed. Again. I’m here to fight for custody of a son he’s never known.

There’s just one problem. Those sparks between us have become flames. If we’re not careful we’re both going to get burned.

Book Tour & Book Review: Rainbows in the Moonlight by @RyanJoSummers Read my Book #review Enter the #giveaway




Romance/ Christian
Date Published: December 20, 2017
Publisher: Soul Mate Publishing

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png


A Southern romance about family, forgiveness, starting over, and love.

Koda Jacobs urgently needs a nanny--right now. Fresh from prison, Dalton Clayton needs a job--and just about anything will do.

Divine Intervention steps in and tosses Koda and Dalton together. Koda struggles with the conflicts of her impulsive decision to leave her babies with an unknown, convicted felon. That just can't be wise, can it? But she can't help but see how quickly the children bonded to him and trust him. Or the reassuring sense that this is just right. Meanwhile, Dalton stumbles through the spills and thrills of two young children, and his growing interest in their mother. A chance meeting brings him back to his estranged family as well.

Over time mutual attraction forms between  Koda and Dalton as the bond between Dalton and the children deepens. A sweet, southern romance full of forgiveness, second chances, and fun kids.


Review

I really liked the balance that was present between these two characters. I liked that we had a bit of a past and present story. It's the epitome of second chances and overcoming your past to make your future amazing.  Koda was a strong female lead with weak moments, if that makes sense. 

Dalton, wow, he is hot hot hot! That really came through the pages for me. I think his connection with the children really managed to amplify that.

We are given a novel that does not unravel predictably and will keep the reader guessing and enjoying the ride the whole way through.  The story itself was engaging and the romance added to that.
