Book Blitz ~ Melt with You by Jessie Evans.

Melt With You Book Blitz Banner

yes blurb

“Some fires never burn out…
After ten years as America’s sweetest celebrity chef, Naomi Whitehouse is enjoying life out of the spotlight, back in her hometown of Summerville, Georgia. She’s opening a pastry shop with her sister, housesitting for her snowbird parents, and reconnecting with her roots. Life is good until she runs into her high school sweetheart, Jake Hansen, a sexy firefighter who gives her a reception chilly enough to freeze a forest fire. If Naomi wants her homecoming to remain all cupcakes and sugar cookies, she’ll have to win Jake over. But how can she earn his forgiveness when he won’t even speak to her?
When the girl who broke his heart buys a month of dates at the firefighter’s Hunk-for-a-Month fundraiser auction, only honor keeps widower Jake Hansen from backing out of the commitment. He won’t let the firehouse down, even if it means enduring a torturous month with Naomi Whitehouse. And Jake knows being close to Naomi again will be torture. Even after all these years, she still gets to him…not that he intends to let her know it. He’ll be civil, honor his obligation, and with any luck Naomi will tire of playing small-town pastry chef and Jake will never see her again.
But as the month passes, Jake and Naomi discover some fires never burn out. Will the heat between them be enough to melt away the pain of past mistakes, or is their second chance doomed from the start?”

Knight ~ By Julia Sykes

17975324

yes blurb

He wants to know my name. I have to answer, have to obey, but I can’t. I am plaything, a possession. And slaves don’t have names. Why is he tormenting me like this? I need to please him so that I can get my reward. God, I need a fix. I’ll die if I don’t get one.

Lydia Chase has been abducted and broken. Her only escape from the pain is the sweet high of the heroin that her sadistic Master gives her as a reward in order to control her. She is found by FBI agent Smith James, and he is determined to help her heal. But she becomes dangerously dependent on him, and his brand of rescue might just leave her more broken than ever. How can she ever become whole again if she can’t learn to let him go and take control of her own life? Does she have a hope of finding freedom when Smith refuses to release her heart? Or is this new form of captivity just what she needs to survive?

WARNING: Given the nature of this story, this book contains graphic violence and references to sexual assault, which some readers may find upsetting. It also contains sizzling scenes of (consensual) BDSM!

NOTE: Knight is part of the Impossible series, but it can be read as a standalone story without spoiling the other books.

Julia’s primary goal is to take readers on a sexy, emotional roller coaster ride. After spending a few wonderful years in the UK, she and her husband have relocated to North Carolina, where they plan to spend their happily ever after with their two lovely cat-children.

Julia is thrilled to be working on her Impossible series. These exciting stories of BDSM and FBI agents combine sexiness and suspense.

There are currently nine full novels planned in addition to the original Impossible trilogy (Monster, Traitor, and Avenger).

The first two Impossible Novels, Savior and Knight, are now available!

yes review

Ok…. So when I first started reading this book I’ll be honest, I really wasn’t sure about it. One of the characters seemed quite familiar to one I’d read in another book in this genre and thought I would easily predict the story.

How wrong was I!

The Slave in the beginning of the book was just clueless as to who she was and her surrounding. She was broken, withdrawn and addicted to drugs the only way she knew how to survive was to obey and serve her Master.

Smith was a perfect alfa male, not a billionaire but a Dominant FBI agent. His role within the book was very consistent, he was always a very strong emotional support to the girl, brave and driven. He became her new master……

The two connect from the start and I loved seeing their relationship grow, I also liked the inner dialogue from lydia it really helped me understand and feel all she was going though.

As I read on I got more and more pulled in and by the end I totally loved it! Some may find this book a bit dark as it has BDSM, drug addiction, abuse, rape and graphic violence…. but it was a well written and a well told story which needed all those elements.

The author writes some very hot sexual scenes and adds some very raw emotions to them, don’t let the BDSM put you off,  this book is worth a read.

Only real niggle I had was how quickly Lydia seemed to overcome her ordeal and become her again.

And who is the Mentor? sooooo thought there was going to be another huge twist coming like the head of the FBI or Vaughn being the mentor.

This book made me feel many emotions, had some unique twists with some jaw dropping and OMG moments.

I will now be reading EVERYTHING  Julia has written!

Blog Tour ~ Out Of Turn by Tiffany Snow.

image

Let the excitement bubble over because we have the next instalment of the Kathleen Turner series! Let us start by thanking Ms Snow, not only did she let us review book 4 *she also ripped our hearts out and stomped all over them, but that’s for later in the reviews* but she also gave us book 1,2 & 3 *happy dance* and we have TWO sets of reviews for you too 😉 so lets get started shall we? We will start from book 4 and work our way backwards……

OUT OF TURN
Kathleen Turner, #4

Breaking up is hard to do, as Kathleen Turner discovers. After a falling-out with her ex, high-powered attorney Blane Kirk, she’s moving on the best she can. Unfortunately, someone from her past is set on revenge and nothing short of killing Kathleen will stop them.

Keeping his brother’s ex-girlfriend alive isn’t something new to assassin-for-hire Kade Dennon, but this time can he protect her from himself? She’s a woman he can’t convince himself to walk away from, no matter what it costs him.

Regret is a constant companion for Blane as he realizes the truth behind the lies he’s been told. Can love heal the past, or can some mistakes not be undone?

Murder reunites Blane, Kade, and Kathleen as the police put Blane in their crosshairs. Blane may lose everything unless he and Kade can find the real murderer before it’s too late. But if they can’t set aside their love for the same woman and work together, it will tear them apart.

In Out of Turn, Kathleen is caught between two warring brothers, and the consequences may be fatal.

~Review By Tina~

Once again Tiffany has taken the readers on another spellbound journey with murder, mayhem, love and passion. This book had me happy than sad one minute than on my heels the next. I was once again glued to this story and unable to put the book down. I love that twists and turns continue in this book. Every time I think I have something figured out Tiffany surprises me and the story takes a whole new direction. It drives me crazy, and I love that.

This series always leaves me questioning all of Blane, Kat and Kades motives. The tension between the three of them in crazy. I think if it were not for Mona and Gerard the three of them would have killed each other by now! I loved that one brother even though it will kill him, is willing to walk away in order to see Kat happy. I have to admit that I found myself getting a bit annoyed with Kat in this book. I did find her to be a bit more selfish in her decision making, but maybe that’s due to everything that has happened to her in such a short time. I don’t know how she can choose between Blane and Kade especially when she’s constantly saying she doesn’t want to be the wedge that is coming between the two of them. One brother is obviously going to up end with a shattered heart. My heart did break seeing Blane and Kade at odds with each more and more all because of a Kat. I think Blane and Kade work so well together when she is not in the picture. I love that we see how much each brother truly knows a different side of Kat. I totally see two sides to Kat especially in this book.

After this book I can only imagine what journey Tiffany has in store for these three and us the fans for the finale. Will it be Blane or Kade that Kat chooses? Could Kat possibly choose herself and walk away in order to not break Blane or Kade apart any more. Is she that strong? Would Blane or Kade even allow for that to happen? Could they possibly let her walk out of their lives and just always watch over her from a distance? I know I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a Blane and Kat happily ever after but after this book I think Tiffany is preparing us Blane fans for heartache. Tiffany is an AMAZING author. This series never disappoints. It leaves you wanting more and more. I can honestly say this series is truly one of my all time favorites. I’m so happy seeing more and more people finding it and loving it too. I can’t wait for the final book. I will have my tissues ready. I’m sure I’ll be in a heavy book depression.

~Review By Nicola~

Tiffany Snow, I’m not sure you understand how these books have effected me! I don’t even know how or where to start this review! 

After multiple attempts of people trying to hurt/injure or even kill me, I think I’d have either kicked Blane and Kade to the curb or packed up and moved……..miles away! What does Kat do? Why she buggers off to Vegas with Kade! Totally stupid idea I know and low and behold trouble seems to follow them! 

I have to admit that I tend to yell at my books and this one had me screaming at it! It also ended up in the freezer at a certain point too! I laughed, cried and then totally sobbed at parts.

This book seemed to bring my hate for Kathleen out, she does so many things in this book that is so out of character that I began to hate her. She seems to play Blane and Kade off of each other which angered me. She seemed to turn it into a competition for who could show her they loved her more……. I kinda lost some respect for her.

It broke my heart to see that Kathleen comes between these two brothers even though she promised time and time again that she wouldn’t. You can see that both Blane and Kade love her and would do anything for her but what will she do for them? she can’t seem to choose, or won’t. Someone is going to end up broken hearted and I’m not sure who I want that to be, I wish Tiffany all the luck in the world to writing THAT scene. Either way fans are going to be torn with the out come of the final book so have the tissues at he ready, I know I will!

TURNING POINT
Kathleen Turner, #3

After her promotion from law firm Runner to Investigator, Kathleen Turner is learning the ropes of her new job from none other than assassin-for-hire Kade Dennon, a situation her boyfriend Blane Kirk is none too happy about. But the lessons with Kathleen take a back seat when Kade becomes a target. Previously untouchable, his enemies now know of the chink in his armor – his brother’s girlfriend.

And Kade’s not the only thing coming between Kathleen and Blane. From Blane’s inexplicable defense of a man guilty of a horrible crime, to a mysterious stranger from Kathleen’s past, to Kathleen’s risky investigation into human traffickers, the obstacles mount against a relationship that’s just begun to find trust again.

While Blane considers a job offer that would take him back to the front lines in the war on terror, Kathleen is determined to pursue her new career, with or without his approval. Unfortunately, her current case is far more dangerous than anyone knows. Someone close to Blane will go to extreme lengths to split them up, lengths that may prove worse than death for Kathleen.

Kathleen, Blane and Kade must atone for the sins of the past and the present. The fallout will force Kathleen to a turning point…in her career, and her life.

~Review By Tina~

I don’t even know where to begin. This book is a rollercoaster of emotions full of love and suspense. The title says it all Turning Point. Kathleen is making so many changes in her life, we are getting to know a different side of her perhaps she’s stronger than she’s ever realized. Again with this book I could not put it down. Tifffany has a way of drawing you in. Just when I got the sense that things were going to be ok for Blane/Kat/Kade another curve ball was thrown in. For me this story was heartbreaking. I think it’s been obvious for quite some time that both brothers are in love with Kat and the situation is only going to get uglier. I usually want to turn around and re-read the book, but this time I couldn’t. This series plays over in my head for weeks after each new book. This series is a MUST READ for sure.

~Review By Nicola~

Wow, Wow and Wow yet again! The amount of twist, turns and back stabbing in is book is unbelievable! Turns out Kathleen has a back bone….. Or death wish…..! Some of the decisions Kathleen makes in this book have me thinking all those knocks to the head have effected her brain! One minute she’s under cover and the next she’s being kidnapped, and not once does she think of her own well being or breakdown. 

My favourite part of the book was finally seeing Blane  laid back and opening up to people. The part with him being carefree with his friends and Kathleen resulted with a lump in my  throat.

I wasn’t expecting the epilogue at the end so I was a surprise at the end but I absolutely LOVED IT!

TURN TO ME
Kathleen Turner, #2

What Kathleen Turner doesn’t know just may kill her.
Her boyfriend, Navy SEAL turned high-powered attorney Blane Kirk, is keeping secrets from her – the deadly kind – and it may end their relationship before it’s even begun.

Someone in the shadows is stalking and terrorizing Kathleen, and Blane must lose a trial with far-reaching ramifications if he wants to keep her alive. Blane turns to assassin-for-hire Kade Dennon to keep Kathleen safe, a strategy that may backfire in more ways than one. Though Kade swears he hates her, he’s helpless to guard against things he’s never felt before and when they’re together, Kathleen sees something forbidden in his eyes.

Kathleen must find the truth behind the lies before her time, and luck, runs out, or she may pay the ultimate price for falling in love with Blane Kirk.

~Review By Tina~

Again Tiffany kept me on edge through through this story. It’s full of murders, suspense and conspiracies. I couldn’t put it down. Kat’s life has been turned upside down in this book. I did not see the Blane/Kat/Kade triangle coming. I was so angry at the end when Blane puts his career on the line to help a friend of Kat’s and she repays him by accepting Kade’s offer to take her to the Brittany Spears concert the concert in which Blane gave her the tickets for her birthday. I was left feeling that Kat is tearing apart two brothers.

~Review By Nicola~

Tiffany Snow does it again! Grabbed me on the first page and didn’t let me go until the end. 

First of all how may lives does this “Kat” have? I’ve heard the Saying ” you’re a trouble magnet” but I’m beginning to think that Kathleen really is one! I’m also not impressed with her suddenly having feelings for Kade, even though she denies it, well played there Tiffany.

In book 2 we get to see a different side to a few characters, first Great Uncle Robert, even saying his name puts a nasty taste in my mouth! He’s evil, cunning  and would stab you in the back to get what he wants! I have a feeling he’s going to be trouble. 

Kandi-with-an-I, I seriously want to rip her hair out! Talk about sour grapes, I know us women can be a bit dramatic but she is just vindictive! She goes to the extreme in some of the things she does in this book.

Kade *gush* we finally get to see the side I knew he was hiding, the sensitive, effectionate  and loving side that he has hidden way down inside so no one can hurt him *sob* Kathleen manages to take down his wall brick by brick and he opens up to her about thinks he hasn’t even told Blane, wrong of Kathleen as he is Blane’s brother  but I see the appeal, just don’t hurt him!!

Like book 1 it has so many twists and turn you don’t know if you’re coming or going BUT I did guess “who done it?!” Yeh!!

The ending to this book broke my heart, I’m sorry but I’m not sure I can forgive Blane for what happened!

TURN ON A DIME – Blane’s Turn
Kathleen Turner #1.5

Blane Kirk is a Navy SEAL turned high-powered attorney with old money and an even older pedigree. Yes, he plays the field, changing women as often as he changes his ties, but they’re not complaining. He has only two rules – 1) Don’t date employees and 2) Don’t get emotionally involved. Those rules have served him well. He sees no reason to change his ways, until his Runner, an employee in his law firm named Kathleen Turner, does an unexpected face plant in his lap.

Kathleen’s too young, too innocent, and suddenly much too vulnerable when her friend is murdered and Blane knows she could be next. Keeping her alive means keeping her close, but can Blane keep her safe…from him? Kathleen’s like no woman he’s ever met, and protecting her could be the one thing he never expected that would make his life turn on a dime.

TURN ON A DIME – BLANE’S TURN is a companion novel to NO TURNING BACK, Book One in The Kathleen Turner Series.

***Personally I didn’t know about Blane’s book but you can bet your ass I’m heading straight on over to Amazon to bag my copy!***

NO TURING BACK
Kathleen Turner, #1

Being a bartender by night and law firm runner by day helps make ends meet for Kathleen Turner. Mostly. Being 23 and single in Indianapolis wasn’t exactly a thrilling adventure, but then again, that’s not what Kathleen wanted. At least, not until she met Blane Kirk.
Navy SEAL turned high-profile attorney, Blane is everything a woman could want. The only problem? He’s her boss. Blane is known for playing the field and the last thing Kathleen needs or wants is to get involved with him. But when her friend is murdered and it seems Kathleen will be next, she may not have a choice.

Now Blane is the only thing standing between her and people who want her dead, including assassin-for-hire Kade Dennon. Beautiful but deadly, he’ll kill anyone who gets in his way, even the woman who makes him question everything he’s become.

The deeper she sinks into the web of lies and murder, the more Kathleen realizes she can trust no one if she’s going to survive. No one is innocent. Not even Blane.

~Review By Tina~

OMG this book had me hooked from the moment Kathleen Turner fell into Blane Kirk’s lap. I laughed so hard when she was hiding from him under her desk. I couldn’t wait to find out who the dark stranger was that helped Kathleen out at the courthouse. This book kept my on the edge of my seat.

~Review By Nicola~

First I would like tho thank my fellow Orchard girlie, Tina, for begging and pleading with me to take part in this blog tour…… And for the sleepless night that followed and the argument of who was better, Blane or Kade!

The first couple of pages had my spitting my drink across the room and my fellow work mate looking at me as if I’d lost the plot! Classic moment of “runner” girl, Kathleen, falling face first into the lap of hot shot lawyer, Blane Kirk, not to mention he’s totally drool worthy….. Oh and the room is full of fellow hot shot people *you want to die right there for her*

Throughout the book Kathleen comes across as a damsel in distress but no matter what the author, Tiffany Snow, throws at her she always a manages to find a way out off the situation, plus a few bumps and scrapes to add to the memory. 

Blane Kirk seems to be a man in control of every situation. He’s strong and charming so I was shocked at how quickly he showed his soft and caring side, I can see why Kathleen fell for him instantly.

Kade *sigh* what can I say? I love a bad boy 😉 and he certainly hits all the buttons *Tina is NOT impressed with my love for Kade* He doesn’t play by the rules, in fact I think he makes most of them up. Kade gets what Kade wants, regardless of who is in the way!

I was hooked and entertained from the very first page and simply couldn’t or didn’t want to put it down *damn you sleep!* It’s fast pace keeps you on your toes not to mention the twists and turns that Tiffany throws in for good measure! And as for the “who done it” OMFG total shock, Sooo didn’t see that coming! There are so very hot situations that Kathleen, Blane and Kade find themselves in *fans self with hand* I’m sooo glad that I didn’t have to wait for book 2, 3 or even 4 *sticks tongue out at Tina* 

I’m looking forward to seeing where the story takes Kathleen and who it will be with.

I love to write and am thrilled to be a part of the Amazon Montlake family. My debut novel, NO TURNING BACK, is the first book in The Kathleen Turner Series. I write about things I love to read myself – a heroine who could be a neighbor or best friend; two men who each portray their own version of darkness and light, each vying for her affection; and a story that focuses as much on the characters as it does the suspense. NO TURNING BACK, TURN TO ME, and TURNING POINT currently comprise The Kathleen Turner Series. The fourth book, OUT OF TURN, will be released 12/17/13. There will be a total of five books in the Kathleen Turner Series.

As for me, I’ve been reading romance novels since I was way too young to read such things, have an unhealthy obsession for all things Doctor Who, prefer Pepsi to Coke and Absolut to both, think men who drink girly cocktails are wusses, have learned to never stop believing in my beloved St. Louis Cardinals, and can recite the entire scripts of When Harry Met Sally and Apollo 13. George Washington is cool, Bon Jovi still rocks the house, and Bruce Willis is the ultimate alpha-male hero. Most of all, romance never, ever gets old.

yes blurb

Torn_from_You_ebook_amazon_smashwords_goodreads (1)

Love is like an avalanche. It hits hard, fast and without mercy.
At least it did for me when Sculpt, the lead singer of the rock band Tear Asunder knocked me off my feet. Literally, because he’s also a fighter, illegally of course, and he taught me how to fight. He also taught me how to love and I fell hard for him. I mean the guy could do sweet, when he wasn’t doing bossy, and I like sweet.
Then it all shattered.
Kidnapped.
Starved.
Beaten.
I was alone and fighting to survive.
When I heard Sculpt’s voice, I thought he was there to save me. I was wrong.

yes blurb

Shattered, betrayed, and divorced, Bailey James has been burned by the only man she’s ever loved. Bailey wants nothing more than to spend her summer off from teaching alone reading in her oversized pajamas and eating chocolate. Love is nowhere on her radar, until her best friend drags her out to celebrate her new bachelorette status.
Humiliated, destroyed, and broken. Andrew Cooper is in search of something real. He’s tired of living with a fake woman and her demands. However, his ex-wife won’t let go and take the hint that he can no longer love a manipulative, cheating woman. Running into old college crush, Bailey James, has Andrew believing that he’s finally found something real–something worth fighting for.
Andrew needs to convince Bailey that they can be together and love happily ever after and break free from their broken pasts. But will his jealous ex-wife and Bailey’s fear of revealing her secret ruin their chance for becoming each other’s real?

Cast in Blood Book Blitz Banner
yes blurb
To the outside world, Morgan Blackstone is an eccentric business woman. But, inside her chest beats the undead heart of a 21st century vampire. Behind the doors of her nightclub, The Dracul, Morgan rules with an iron fist in a velvet glove. After a long night of wrangling unruly supernatural customers, she is looking forward to some peace… but unbeknownst to her, there are other vampires who are conspiring against her. Just before dawn, in the deserted parking lot, she comes face-to-face with two old adversaries, one of which she had last seen being sealed in a tomb, 400 years before. Overpowered by her attackers, Morgan wakes inside the lab of an unscrupulous doctor. Held against her will, subjected to experiments, she soon realizes that something has begun to burn within her veins… Something that she knows will kill her.
