*Release Blitz / Review* Stain by Francette Phal



“You’re like the sun…and I’m the stupid moon. Always chasing after you.”

I didn’t know it was possible to fall so deeply into someone. To drown so strongly into their bottomless depths coming up for air was unfathomable. Until he comes along, with his sun-hot radiance, and eclipses the candle that is me. He’s Lucifer before the fall, beautiful but the devil is in the way he looks at me. In the way his touch brands his name across every inch of my skin. His kisses possess my soul in the most sinful of ways.

Maddox Moore is my beginning and my end. Protector, friend, and lover—he’s become my sole religion. At his side I become fearless, in his arms I burn to cinders, and in worshiping him I lose myself and discover the person he sees in me. But nothing is forever. Moments are ephemeral. No matter how much you want something life inevitably reminds you that you can’t have it.

I’m damaged. He’s broken. We’re both covered in stains. Stains that make it impossible for us to hold onto each other.


Warning: This book contains graphic content which may not be suitable for sensitive readers.




reviewStain by Francette Phal is highly addicting. It’s dark, twisted and downright ugly but in all that ugliness there is light and hope hidden deep within. I am in love with all things Maddox! The good, the bad and the very ugly.

Maddox and his twin Noah basically grew up in hell. The man that should’ve been their protector was anything but. Tragedy struck in their lives and Noah seemed to come out of it ok, Maddox on the other hand was completely changed forever. He can’t let go of the cape that is his dirty past. The monster he once lived with as a young boy still has its claws wrapped around him. Suffocating him and seems to have completely changed him forever. He makes his living using people. It’s just a body, no feelings, no attachments. That is….. Until Aylee comes along.

“Why the fuck can’t you be like the rest of them? Why can’t you be another damn body? Why do you have to matter?” ~ Maddox

Aylee too is enduring a horrific life. Adopted, she has no choice but to live in her current situation. Where Maddox’s monster is technically in the past physically, Aylee’s is very much in the here and now. She just wants to survive, so she does what she is told. Aylee is so very strong and it just breaks my heart what she is going through.

Aylee knows Maddox is bad news. Everyone knows he is bad news. But she sees right through him and Maddox knows it. Maddox has a violent temper he just can’t control and he feels like it’s his only outlet. He isn’t a good guy. Aylee has an outlet of her own, but instead of hurting others, it is herself. She is determined to show Maddox that there is more. It’s ok to feel. It’s ok to let go and talk about your past. Sometimes it’s the only way to let go of the demons that are holding you down.

“I see you, Maddox, more clearly than I’ve ever seen anything or anyone in my entire life. And I know it scares you because you can see me, too” ~ Aylee

These two needed each other more than they realized. Together they help each other break free from the Monsters. But, do they make it through unscathed?

I absolutely loved this book. I love Dark, twisted, broken. If you are squeamish, might want to stay away because there are some graphic scenes. I don’t mind that stuff and I think it was perfectly blended into the book and the situations. If you don’t mind a little of that, then dig right in. 5 Stars for Stain!

21 Stolen Kisses - cover


When I first met him I resisted.
Like any forbidden love, I told myself he was a crush, and it would pass.
That was a lie. It never faded.

And I never expected he would fall for me just as hard.

There were so many reasons that should have kept us apart, least of all, the decade that separated us.
Growing up in New York City, I learned early on that love is a double-edged sword.
Love broke up my parents, love took away my friends, and love — the big, intense, never-been-like-this-beforelove — landed me in therapy.
Now I’m heading to college, and it’s time to give love a clean slate again. But, can I really start over when he’s still in my life?
Because the one man I’ve always wanted, is also the only guy I absolutely can’t have…
And he wants me just as fiercely.

Can I settle for anything less than the love of my life?

*Release Blitz* I’m Yours by Ella Maise

Release Blitz BannerTitle: I’m Yours
Author: Ella Maise
Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance
Release Date: December 1, 2014

I'm Yours - Cover

Have you ever been in love?
So in love that you believed all the lies, again and again?
Because I did…
Did you manage to escape from the hurt, the heartbreak, and the tears that came with being in love?
Did you even have time to pick up the broken pieces of your heart before they shattered it all over again?
Because I didn’t…
I gave Evan my heart, my trust, my everything, and in return all he gave me was pain.
Stumbling around in a new city, picking up the pieces I had lost, I found myself in a stranger’s arms. Cradling me against his chest, protecting me, seeing me, promising me everything I was afraid to ask for myself again.
I’m not naive enough to mistake lust for love. Love never comes that easily; it always rips you apart before it finally gives you what each and every one of us longs for. But Noah knew what he was after, and now I know that nothing could have stopped him from taking what he wanted from me.
He became the one who gave me hope again, day after day, simply by being there.
He became the one who made me whimper in bed, while he whispered dirty words in my ear, night after night.
And then he became the one who took it all away again.

This is my story, maybe a simple one for some, yet still completely mine.
