Release Date: April 18th
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Provocative Final Border 4.07.17 PM

Book one in the sexy and intense new White Lies duet by Lisa Renee Jones!

There are those moments in life that are provocative in their very existences, that embed in our minds forever, and sometimes our very souls. They change us, mold us, maybe even save save us. But some are darker, dangerous. If we allow them to, they control us. Seduce us. Quite possibly even destroy us.

The moment I walked into Sonoma’s Reid Winter Winery and Vineyard and made eye contact with Faith Winter for the first time was one of those moments. Provocative because I know at least one of her secrets, of which, I suspect she has many. Provocative because she believes I was a stranger to her when we met, but I am not. Provocative because I sought her out, with no intention of touching her. But now I have. Now I want her. Now I have to have her. But that changes nothing. It doesn’t change why I came for her.

*Blog Tour and Review* Ricochet by Keri Lake

Title: Ricochet
Author: Keri Lake
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: July 9, 2015
 
synopsis
The only sure way to destroy a man is to take what he cannot live without.
Three years ago, I had everything.
A beautiful wife.
 
A son.
 
A reason for living.
 
Until a ruthless task force, assembled under Mayor Michael Culling, with a brutal strategy to make the streets of Detroit ‘safe’, ripped away everything I loved in a deadly hunt called The Culling.
 
They tried to kill me, too. I wish they had. Now I’m cursed by the memories of that night, and the words I whispered to my dying wife.
A promise—to avenge the wrong and set it right.
 
I’m no longer Nick Ryder. I’m a masked vigilante. Faceless. Loveless. Fearless. A man with nothing left to lose—one who’s seen the dark and violent truth behind the city’s flawless veneer.
Michael Culling doesn’t know who I am. Or what I want. All he knows is that I’ve kidnapped his beautiful wife.
An eye for an eye—isn’t that how the saying goes? And Aubree Culling is the perfect pawn to destroy him.
If she doesn’t destroy me first.

Review

 Reviewed by Shera 5 of 5 Stars!

So, holy Frigging WOW!   I thought I had a grip on what the hell was going on in the Blyss world, but nope, JC pimp slapped me with Blyssful Lies – BANG, BAM, in YOUR Face Shera, lol.  Blyssful Lies just blew my little perfect bubble world apart!  (Of Course, Travis remains in my bubble)

I seriously thought I hated Nick, like he was just not redeemable in my eyes at all.  But then this sadistic bastard has a sweet and loving side?  It is almost like he is tormented.   So I willingly put myself into the Stockholm Syndrome category, because now I myself am sure I have it.

Then we have my man Travis. HOT as hell Travis.   I am still very much in love with Travis.  In Blyss we got a hint that Travis was infact a good guy.  He had feelings, wants…. In Blyssful Lies we get full blown exposure to everything that makes Travis and I didn’t think I could love him more than I did in Blyss, boy I was so very wrong.

Julianna is left confused, conflicted and tormented.  She doesn’t know which way is up anymore, but one thing she does realize, is she has feelings for Travis, or does she?  Memory loss is a true bitch and when things start coming back what is going to happen??

“What we have is more profound than pure bliss, and believe me when I tell you I never want to let you go.” 

He might not want to let her go, but will Julianna refused to be held on to?

JC gives you books that will make you laugh, cry, want to crawl in a hole and hide, then warm your heart right up, all packaged up into one nifty little present.   There are a ton of WTF just happened moments that will have you swiping your reader faster then it will actually move.   I was on the edge of my seat, biting my nails in this one!  The ending, oh HOLY ENDING!   I can NOT wait for the next book.  I NEED to know what happens, like yesterday!     5 SMOKIN Stars!  Bring me MORE J.C!

Twenty-eight year old Coco Thomas knows the recipe for disaster:

1) Agree to plan last-minute engagement blowout for spoiled Mafia princess before you realize her choice of caterer is Nick Lupo, a despicably gorgeous young chef with a hot new restaurant in town, a reality TV show victory, and a romantic past with you—one that did not end well.

2) Strike a deal with Nick in which you agree to spend a weekend with him in exchange for his services, under the strict conditions there will be no talking about the past, no second chances, and definitely no sex.

3) Violate all three conditions within 24 hours and spend two glorious days remembering what made you fall for the sexy, egotistical bastard in the first place, and why it hurt so much when he broke your heart.

Add one road trip, plenty of good scotch, and endless spoonfuls of chocolate cake batter drizzled over your body and licked off inch by oh-my-God-yes-right-there inch, then just admit it.

You’re totally FORKED.

Blyss_FrontCover2_WebSynopsis4
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF SUCH A GENRE—THE LIGHTER SIDE OF DARK?
Everyone will have their own definition of “Dark” vs. “Contemporary”, and perhaps there is a mixture of the two. I like to call this the “Grey” genre.
However, there is one thing for certain; you haven’t ever read this type of story before. Blyss is an original, one of a kind storyline in theme, circumstance, and character action.
You will definitely need all three books in order to put together the pieces of this puzzle, but isn’t that what makes reading fun? Book one sets the stage while you begin to embrace the thrill, the suspense, and the anticipation. There is a romance story amongst all the turmoil…you will just have to hang on for the ride.

*~*~*~*

CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE (with dark moments)

Blyss is something the world has been trying to create since the beginning of time, the ultimate aphrodisiac. A drug that’s used against women with one single purpose in mind….

Julianna Oakley has just finished up her junior year at college and flies home to spend her last free summer with her father on their prestigious Georgia estate. Julianna isn’t your typical spoiled, rich girl, prima donna. She’s down to earth and has an independent streak a mile wide, insisting she make her own way in this world.

Nick has been setting the stage for a long time, and sparks fly when their separate worlds collide. She is Nicks’ ultimate obsession, and he will stop at nothing to own her.
When Travis, Nick’s right hand man, lays his eyes on the prize all hell is about to break loose.

Travis should know Nick is playing for keeps, and while Julianna is fighting for her freedom, a lifetime full of secrets and twisted perceptions slowly unravel as Julianna gets caught in the fray.

Warning:
** Mature Audiences Only** This book is intended for mature audiences only (18+) and contains sensitive subjects, explicit descriptions of sex, drugs, dirty talk, strong language, and violence.

Review

Reviewed by Shera 4 of 5 Stars!

First let me say, this was a fanfreakingtastic book!  I would consider this book on the darker romance side, less on the contemporary romance side and I LOVE DARK!  Yea, call me cray cray but I get sucked into a dark book like a lint ball into a hoover!  There is just no escaping!   This story revolves around a kidnapping and being forced in to the world of a new drug called Blyss.   It’s supposed to be the end all be all of aphrodisiacs, given to women for one reason only.    I am sure you can guess what that is.

Poor Julianne was kidnapped and taken away from everyone she loves.  She comes from a powerful family and when a business deal goes the wrong way, Julianne is caught right up in it.   Forced into a world she doesn’t know.   She’s feisty, driven and she won’t go down without swinging that’s for sure.   Her attitude might get in her trouble, or it may just save her life.

“I am Julianne Oakley and I have not begun to fight”

Nick who is the “Boss” has been sorta obsessed with Julianne for years, ok scratch that has really obsessed.  One thing is for sure he totally underestimated her resilience.   He is selfish, egoistical asswad with his own form of twisted (I love twisted).   Then you have Travis, Nick’s partner who is the “Trainer”.  He seems the complete opposite of Nick.  He is kind and caring to Julianne.  Gorgeous, charming, HOT Alpha Male and he seems as if he cares of Julianne, but does he really?  Is that the real Travis?

You really should hate both Nick and Travis, but you can’t.  It’s like your mind is saying WTF why do I like either of these guys, but you will and you won’t be able to stop it so don’t bother trying!
Can Julianne hold on to her sanity long enough to stay alive? Can she help but not fall for one of these boys?

This book has some very hot scenes, but some having you gripping your kindle so hard because they are gut wrenching jaw dropping hold on tight scenes.   Blyss to me is the ultimate date rape drug, which makes you love and hate what is going on.

I can’t wait to see how the story unfolds and look forward to the next book in the series!   4 Stars!

Leverage BT Banner Leverage_Ebook_Final

 

Synopsis4

A dark romantic thriller intended for a mature audience.

* * * *

Four years ago, Tyler Karras’ quest to avenge his wife’s death led to all out war with San Francisco’s Russian Mafia. With the Bratva’s collapse and its king, Dmitri Chernov, long dead, all Ty wants now is to put it behind him and enjoy a second chance at life with his new bride, Hannah, and the child they’re expecting any day.

But Chernov’s heir, Grigory Dmitriev, has returned, bitter and determined. He wants his kingdom back, and he’s more than willing to leverage Ty’s new family to get it.

 

First he targets Conner, Ty’s brooding nineteen-year-old stepson, manipulating the boy into a vortex of sex, drugs, alcohol, and gambling. Then he turns his sights on Hannah. At eight months pregnant, she’s the ultimate bargaining chip. With both their lives in jeopardy, as well as his unborn child, Ty has little choice but to do as Grigory commands.

But Tyler swore he’d never kill again. He buried that monster four years ago and means to keep it that way. Grigory, however, makes that vow impossible to keep.

With his new family on the line, Ty will cross further into the dark side than he ever has before, challenging everything he believes about himself, and forcing him to face the ghosts of his past. Only then will Ty discover if he has the strength to do the unspeakable, to sacrifice his last chance at redemption and save the lives of those he loves most

Review

 Reviewed by Ashley  4.5 out of 5 Stars!

Leverage is the follow-up to The Mistaken, so if you have not read it I recommend it. I have to say I thought that I had a hard time connecting to the characters, Tyler and Hannah, and The Mistaken but I was pleasantly surprised at the character development in Leverage. Even with the little background that Conner, Hannah’s son, gave of the past four years, I felt like it was just enough to be emotionally connected and want to root for him. Tyler and Hannah also make another appearance in Leverage, and this time around I liked them even more.

Tyler thought that all his ties with the Russian mafia were in the past, little does he know that Grigory Dmitriev is after him and his family. Grigory is trying to regain rein of the Russian mafia after his father Dmitri died while in custody awaiting trial.

Conner has gotten manipulated into many addicting things; sex, drugs, alcohol, gambling, even caffeine. It’s all part of his coping with the death of his best friend, whom he believes was killed. Little does he know that it is the Russian mafia trying to get back at Conner’s step-father, Tyler Karras.

“I still wanted Ty to pay for what he’d done to my mother, and to me. I was determined to find a way to get Maks to do just that.”

Tyler must convince Conner that all is not as it seems and that his loyalties lie with his family and not the mob. Will he be able to stay true to the man he wants to be, or go back to being a monster?

I highly recommend this book. There was so much suspense and you truly don’t know who you can trust or believe. I do have to say that I liked this book more than The Mistaken. I give this a 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Title: Forever Ride (A Hellions Ride, #2)

Author: Chelsea Camaron

Genre: MC Romance

Release Date: June 9, 2014

goodreads-badge-add-plus-d700d4d3e3c0b346066731ac07b7fe47

Synopsis

Events happen in life that can awaken our truest and deepest desires. They also show us our greatest fears. Sometimes we are forced to face those fears, other times we build walls that can’t be broken to protect ourselves.

A profound connection these two once shared. A strong friendship once formed was shattered. Fate has stepped in and shaken both their worlds.

The danger, the wild, the chaos, and the lifestyle of the Hellions world has become far too much for Savannah ‘Sass’ Perchton. Swearing off bikers and attempting a ‘normal’ life, she has settled. She’s committed to Nick, her country club, pretty boy. She’s found a way to be content.

Things aren’t always what they seem. Wrap an empty box in pretty paper and a bow, it may look amazing, but it’s still a hollow shell.

He’s a Hellions playboy. A different chick in his bed, off on a different ride, and always something new. He’s Frank the ‘Tank’ Oleander, Haywood’s Hellions Road Chief. Throttle down and life is good.

The fast pace of the Hellions life catches up to him. At a crossroads, he’s forced to face some life changing thoughts or succumb to the darkness of death. Teetering on the brink of giving in, her voice is all he’s holding onto. The coma he can’t pull himself out of, but her voice is the light in the darkness. He wants the girl who pulled him through when his life was literally in the balance.

She’s sworn off bikers. Can he pull through? Can she ever see past the lifestyle to the heart of the man behind the cut? Will they find their Forever Ride?

Ashley’s Review 4.5 Stars!

Savannah ‘Sass’ Perchton is a Hellions MC princess. With everything that happened to her and her best friend, Delilah ‘Doll’ Reklinger, she has decided that she is done with the MC lifestyle. She thinks that she isn’t strong enough to deal with everything that comes with being with a Hellion, so she tries a “normal” relationship with Nick.

Frank the “Tank” Oleander is known in the MC as a lady’s man. He isn’t what he thinks is ‘relationship material’ so he always has a new bar fly in his bed. Tank serves as Road Chief to the Hellions transport business and always helps his brothers whenever he can, even if it means putting himself in danger. Helping protect his brothers, Tank ends up in the cross hairs and in a coma fighting for his life.

Sass is the only one that keeps Tank fighting in his coma to wake up. Giving up everything related to the MC to please Nick, she has to give up waiting for Tank to wake up and move on with her life. While in the coma, we get flashbacks of Tank’s life and how he became to be a Hellion. We learn about how he wasn’t dealt a good hand in life, but he wants more than anything to help and support his family with the help of Roundman, the Hellions President.

“Life may hand you a shit deal in the cards, but you have to show that motherfucker no one controls you. Rise above it, boy. Make something of yourself, your mom and your sisters.”

While trying to leave her life behind and please Nick, Sass completely loses herself. She starts going by her real name, Savannah, which she has never done before. She changes her job, appearance, and even mannerisms to keep Nick happy and to have a normal relationship and life. Is that the life that is really best for Sass though?

“The more I look around, the more I take in the loss of me.”

I have to say, this was not your normal MC book. It was more of a love story with a side of bikers. I wish that more of Sass and Tank’s story from before his coma had been touched on so that I could have connected with their relationship more. It almost just seemed as though they were fighting to be together, but it’s hard to say why since they had only slept together once in the first book in the series. Also, there was no hot sex in this book, like at all, which shocked me. I gave this 4 out of 5 stars. I just wish the story wasn’t so gloomy. Continue reading
