Billionaire playboy? Check.
Ruthless businessman? Check.
Absolutely sinful? Check.

Malcolm Saint was an assignment. A story. A beautiful, difficult man I was supposed to uncover for a racy exposé.

I intended to reveal him, his secrets, his lifestyle—not let him reveal me. But my head was overtaken by my heart and suddenly nothing could stop me from falling. I fell for him, and I fell hard.

Malcolm Saint is absolute Sin, and I've become a hopeless Sinner.

Now that the assignment is over, Saint wants something from me--something unexpected--and I want this wicked playboy's heart. But how can I prove to the man who trusts no one that I’m worthy of becoming his plus one?
  

 
 Manwhore +1 by Katy Evans (Manwhore, #2)

Manwhore +1 (Manwhore, #2)Heat records are being broken all around the world, is the cause global warming, or Malcolm Saint? If you have to ask, you sooooo need to pick up Katy Evans’ Manwhore series and a pair of asbestos gloves. Manwhore +1 the second book in the series finds the powerful, magnetic billionaire playboy making even more demands on Rachel, demands she cannot possibly meet. His look is no longer warm and twinkling with a devilish spark, but cold, hard as ice and Rachel is dying inside and out for what she has done to him. Can she prove to him she really loves him and she is so, so sorry? Can they get over her deceit and trickery?
When the less than stellar magazine Rachel works for is facing a buy-out by Malcolm’s devious father, Rachel must decide what her future will hold. She is forced to make an emotional decision that will help others, but crush Malcolm in the worst way. Is Rachel still the woman she was before falling for the man behind the ruthless, manwhore legend or will she finally go for the only man she will ever love?

Katy Evans’ Manwhore+1 is an erotic romance that is part fantasy, part heart-melting romance with enough heat to boil liquid nitrogen. Yes, the intimate scenes are completely swoon-worthy, but it’s the connection between these two that shines through. Deep, strong and yet so fragile for each of them, they each traverse their fragile tightrope in their own fashion. Ms. Evans has created the ultimate romance, a strong and powerful man who has always played the field because the one thing he fears is opening up and baring his true self, a man who is used for his wealth, position and wants so much more. She then created a hardened business woman who is a romantic inside to break through his armor as he breaks through hers. Add the world going away when they are together and it is every romantic’s

Katy Evans knows just what buttons to push to draw her readers into this tale, think shoot out at the OK Corral if it were held in the steel and glass skyscrapers of Chicago, with the beautiful damsel standing strong beside her man, the man she uncovered beneath the cold heart.

Gore Girls: Twisted Tales & Poems by Jackson Dean Chase

Gore Girls: Twisted Tales & Poems (Young Adult Horror, #4)I bet the best compliment Jackson Dean Chase could receive for Gore Girls: Twisted Tales & Poems is that his tales and his poems are dark, disturbing and the perfect fodder for nightmares! Top that off with the fact that he writes for young adults from a female perspective and well, the creep factor soars, because these teens, at first blush seem as regular as any student walking down the hallowed halls of education.

Is it possible that young love can be deadly? That sibling rivalry hastens a zombie apocalypse? That bullying, vanity and revenge can humble even the most vicious of teen girls? Is it a drink best served cold? You think YOUR little sister was a demon? Ever dreamed of being the only girl left in the world, think it’s as dreamy as you imagine, could you re-make yourself into a survivor? Let's not forget the poetry, dark, sometimes morbid, not exactly sonnets of love, but for the twisted minds, they are words of dark beauty.

Yep, Jackson Dean Chase has found a place on my shelf, the dark corner, where I hide my twisted little secrets. Each short story is shock-worthy, full of evil shadows and deeds as young human minds are distorted and wrenched into monsters or lost in madness. Each story will also haunt you as you see the jagged pieces of youth, the actions (possibly yours) and terrifying reactions that you, thankfully never faced…but, what if?

Jackson Dean Chase boldly goes where few writers dare, have you the stomach to follow?

My rating: 4 stars

Series: Broken - Book 1
Publication Date: January 6, 2014
Publisher: Tobann Publications
Genre: Dark Contemporary Romance
Print Length: 258 pages
Available from: Amazon

Nick O'Hara is, for lack of a better word, a man-wh***. Look in the Urban Dictionary under that word, and his name will no doubt be mentioned. The only qualifications that he looks for in a bed-mate is that the person is hot and breathing. Mainly hot. He has no desire for an emotional connection with another person, and that's the way he lives his life. He has his fabulous wealth and his reputation as a premiere architect, and that's enough for him.

Until Scotty James.

Scotty is a graduate student at Columbia University in New York City. She's broken from traumatic experiences from her years in foster care and homelessness. She has a vulnerability that is intoxicating to Nick, because, deep down, he knows that he is as broken as she.

When Nick pursues Scotty, it seems that she is the only woman who doesn't want to be with him. At first she's a challenge, but Nick soon finds himself falling in love for the first time in his life. With a woman who wants nothing to do with him.

Can Scotty overcome her trust issues and fear to let Nick in? Or will she prove to be too broken to trust?

 
 Broken by Annie Jacoby (Broken, #1)


Life in the fast lane in New York, the movers, the shakers, the rich, who know no limits in their quest to be entertained. Meet Nick O’Hara, a sexual “loose cannon,” so to speak, if it is breathing, beautiful and falling at his feet, alone or with a friend, count him in, the more often, the better! A famous and successful architect with the deep pockets to prove it, Nick is a player.

There is another side to New York, those living paycheck to paycheck and even then they are in fear of falling through the gaps between checks. There are millions of stories about the people in New York and Scotty James’ story is a painful one that has colored her life to this very day. A brilliant and gifted architectual student, Scotty was hurt so badly in her youth she avoids men at all costs, no one will make her a victim again.

This is how two worlds collide, the haves and the have-nots in a hurricane of emotions, each fighting against what they feel, each hunkered down in their own safety zones. Nick is a man of action, a man of privilege and he knows how to throw his weight around, except his attempt to claim Scotty keeps falling short and she won’t tell him exactly why.
Can Nick break down Scotty’s walls? Can he become the kind of man she needs? Can he learn to be a one woman man? This simple girl is beautiful beyond compare, but about as substantial as a puff of smoke. When one of Nick’s rejected “harem” takes aim with her cruelty and viciousness, how can Scotty stand up for herself against a powerhouse on a broomstick?

Do you like drama, angst by the bucketloads or one non-communication after several miscommunications? How do you feel about men who KNOW they can have whomever, whenever they want without emotional attachments? What about downtrodden women who fail to see their own worth and fail to stand up for themselves at the most crucial moments? I have to hand it to Annie Jacoby and Broken, I was so involved in this tale, I was taking mental turns at who I disliked the most, and yes, I found a winner. But what I noticed was, I was so involved, that these people became frighteningly real to me, while I can’t say I would want any of them for friends, their plight was gut-wrenching, and frustrated the heck out of me! Ms. Jacoby forced me to connect and take a rollercoaster ride into the lives and insecurities of people in their personal lives. Are people ever as they truly seem or do they do what is expected of them by others? Sweet romance potential, lies by omission, lack of faith, it’s all here, but watch your last step at the end…

My writing is a way to help me keep that promise. I've always enjoyed writing but was forced into being 'prudent' and giving myself over to soul-crushing office work for the sake of a steady salary. Recent events forced me to re-evaluate my priorities and I decided to take a chance. I like to put little pieces of 'us' into my writing, from funny conversations we had, to apocalyptic arguments, to that special feeling you get when you hop into bed fully aware that your feet are freezing but your partner doesn't kick you away.

Even though these things are set in fictional worlds and attached to fictional characters, in a way it feels like I'm doing something that will make our love live forever. If somebody reads one of my stories and likes a joke or sheds a tear, then our love has lived on, and I thank any readers I might have for that.

Chasing Bristol by Shane Morgan (The Finding Trilogy #2)

Chasing Bristol
by Shane Morgan

My rating: 4.5 stars

Series: The Finding - Book 2
Publication Date: April 18, 2015
Publisher: TSW Books
Genre: NA Romance/Intrigue
Print Length: 312 pages
My Rating: 4.5 Stars
Available from: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

 
Can be read as a standalone

Bristol is trying to move on from a cheating ex. The last thing she wants are roses, gifts, and suggestive notes popping up at her apartment and at work.

When Bristol meets Mason—a charming and sweet guy who wants a chance with her—she’s convinced that he is the mystery guy trying to capture her heart. The thought fizzles when what appeared to be harmless turns into something much more terrifying, and Bristol realizes that Mason isn’t capable of such things—not in his position.

Bristol’s secret admirer is determined to have her for himself, no matter what. Will she have the courage to fight?
  

 
 Chasing Bristol by Shane Morgan

Chasing Bristol (The Finding Trilogy #2)He cheated on her in the bed where they made love and she caught him, with his pants down, so to speak. Crushed, Bristol needs to move on, learn to suck it up and not worry about finding another relationship until she was strong enough to trust again, if ever. When the roses from a secret admirer started, she was confused, flattered and curious, although not about to get caught up in a relationship, if he ever revealed himself. Then her mystery admirer crossed the line and became a dangerous stalker.

Enter Mason, a former school mate, a policeman and an almost too good to be true friend and protector, how did he know when she needed him most? Was he her secret admirer or just a cop doing his job, going above and beyond the call of duty? When things get dangerous and deadly, who can Bristol trust? Where can she hide? Is she safe anywhere? Will Mason prove to be her Knight in shining armor or her worst nightmare?

Chasing Bristol by Shane Morgan had me worried at first, not because of anything in this intriguing novel, but because of the phrase *Can be read as a standlone.* I’ve fallen for that one before, but, true to her word, Shane Morgan’s Chasing Bristol CAN be read alone, but this kind of reading and writing begs to have the other books in this series read because the tale is THAT good!

Throughout each page, there is a feeling of an unknown threat, as we are led into the deepest reaches of one young woman’s fears with no way out but forward! Ms. Morgan’s characters are fascinating, sometimes frustrating and once, I even told Bristol she was too dumb to live, all because of her rash actions or in-actions. Bristol is very complex, while Mason seems a bit of a mystery in himself. Is he hiding something? Is he the stalker? The only way to the truth may cost Bristol her life and possibly the lives of those around her, is she ready for what lies ahead? How could one girl be so unlucky in love? Even her dysfunctional family provides little comfort and Mason, well, Mason has his own ghosts to contend with. Full of surprises, darkness and a mystery that is not easy to solve, especially when there is only one person who knows all of the answers. Great reading, even as a stand alone!

The Billy Green saga continues! Billy’s challenging, sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic, always unpredictable journey.

He was more determined than ever to find meaning in life and comfort in love.

Billy came to know one thing for sure.

Love is real.

He could now with the absolute cocksure confidence of pure enlightenment, scoff at the naysayers and spit in the face of the purveyors of romantic nihilism, the cynics who say that love is an illusion.

Billy knew the real score.
Love is the light that never dims.
Love is a wine that flows in our hearts.
Love is a wonder that has no beginning or end.
Love is a master key that opens the gates of perfection.
Love is the language our souls use to speak to one another.
Love is the trafficking of fantasies and transcending of mortality.
Love is an energy that can neither be created or destroyed.
Love is God Allah Yahweh Shiva Qat Aphrodite.
Love is touch smell feel taste listen pray.
Love is the poetry of the senses.
Love is metaphysical gravity.
Love is the gift of oneself.
Love is sweet tyranny.
All you need is love.

Descartes. You almost got it right.
Je aime, donc je suis.

Yes. That’s how it should go.
I love, therefore I am.

Valentines Day solipcism.

But does it ever turn out the way we planned? The way we hoped and dreamed?

   
 The Man Who Loved Too Much: Book 2: Entendre 
by John Rachel

The Man Who Loved Too Much: Book 2: Entendre (Book #2 of 3)Billy Green is back, and life for Billy is a concentrated kaleidoscope of his own head in the clouds attitude where everyone has a happy – ever – after and the reality of life with all of its nasty warts and scars. Yep, for Billy, reality is like a bulldozer coming at him, head on and he fails to really believe it won’t stop just before he is run over emotionally.

In his little slice of the universe, things are painful, shocking, heart-breaking and depressing, yet all around him life is going on, the world keeps turning, governments churn, music rages, people live their lives and in the scheme of things he is nothing more than a gnat in a cornfield. Only Billy can help Billy, but he is too busy feeling bad for Billy to save Billy from Billy. Is that statement confusing, chaotic? Yep, but it clearly states the predicament Billy finds himself wallowing in. Life has thrown Billy his fair share of rotten eggs, tarnishing his versions of marriage, work, and life in general, leaving him to self-implode upon hitting rock bottom. Will he ever find himself and pull himself out of the cesspit he has chosen to wallow in? Will he learn to move on and thumb his nose at adversity? How about making things about more than just Billy?

The Man Who Loved Too Much: Book 2: Entendre by John Rachel is like reading a work of highly stylized, contemporary art. We all see something different, our feelings and reactions are all from our own perspective. John Rachel writes with a chaotic pen, building a world that appears normal on the outside one minute, and then a tsunami of emotional baggage the next. His characters are completely likable one minute, then, poof, they act cold as ice. Billy, well, Billy is one hot mess, trying to do the right thing, trying to live the “HEA” without a mapped out route to do so.

I absolutely love the reading challenge John Rachel presents, as he whirls a few huge twists around, dumps historical facts for the time period, but never loses his focus on Billy, who, I must say he is torturing at this time! Maybe because he grew up in Detroit? Maybe because he is a world traveler how has witnessed many cultures? Or is it that he knows how to hook his readers and hold them hostage until the very last page! Take a step out of your usual genre and take a ride on the whirling dervish that is John Rachel’s world, you will be amazed!

 Here you will find everything from turning your initial ideas into story generation, from beating writer’s block, to keeping your writing moving forward from story concept to knowing where and how to end your story. The following is a sample.

“WRITE THE CLIMAX FIRST
It is said that the hardest paragraph to write is the first paragraph of any book. So, don’t start there. Remember rule number three? We don’t have to write a book in the same order we read the book. Write the end first. Then back up and get the characters to the end as quickly as possible.

We became writers because we were readers first. Our natural inclination is to write our novel like we read a book, from front to back, beginning to end, start to finish. That just isn’t always the correct or only way. We write in any order that gets us writing and keeps us writing…”

 
 How to Start, Write, and Finish Your First Novel 
by Alan Black

How to Start, Write, and Finish Your First NovelHave you ever read a book and thought, “I didn’t see THAT coming,” or “Thank goodness I dragged myself through the first 30% because the last 70% was fantastic!” ??????? Or, how about, “I could write better than that!” or “I wish I had the guts to do what these people have done…” ?????????

Truth, I would be clueless where to start, I see myself as having a mazillion ideas and be running willy-nilly across the ages, no patience, no real plan, and worse, no organization…totally me.

Listen up budding authors, experienced authors, or anyone who knows someone with that “author” potential, the ever versatile Alan Black has gone all non-fiction on us and written a book on how to write a book that is fun, entertaining and full of great ideas, plans and Mr. Black’s own sense of wry humor. How to Start, Write and Finish Your First Novel made so much sense to me, that I was in awe of his thought process and advice! Don’t get me wrong, this is NOT Writing for Dummies, but a logical, and easily understood method to produce YOUR first novel! Mr. Black’s suggestions and easy manner, while admitting the importance of baby steps is difficult to adhere to, the odds of creating a quality piece of work would be greatly increased!

Is the genre you choose NOT the current rage? Are your ideas NOT 100% original? If your writing is good, your plot well-paced and the very best you have to offer, following Alan Black’s method could make you the next author to watch for or at least an author with talent and the ability to tell a story that people WANT to read! Take a look at Alan’s list of novels, impressive and varied, but each one is well-written, entertaining and well-edited, he must be doing something “write.” Yeah, yeah, I sound like an infomercial, but heck, even I would have the guts to express my writing abilities to the world after reading How to Start, Write and Finish Your First Novel, and, of course I would have Alan Black review it!

I think what Alan Black is trying to do is to give a future writer a firm foundation to take the leap from and he does it well!

Could you find your soul mate in thirteen worlds... would you survive long enough to claim them? From NEW YORK TIMES & USA TODAY bestselling author Tamara Rose Blodgett

Beth Jasper, a rare female warrior Reflective, has been momentarily freed from the brutality of Sector One, only to discover her home world of Papilio has been reshaped into chaos by Reflective Ryan. A flesh trade has ruined the female Reflectives who were unprotected while their male counterparts were held on One under Slaver Dimitri.

The Reflective Cause (Reflection, #2)The Reflective Cause by Tamara Rose Blodgett

Humor, snark, dark action and attitude oozes out of The Reflective Cause storyline.

Returning to their own dimension 5 years into the future, the group faces a bleak existence where the Reflective has been transformed into an evil power of repression and tyranny.

A vivid journey between world, the dark, swift moving plot is written in such a way that it seems to plug the story directly into your mind making you see it playing out before you.

Ultimately, it is the ability of the author to create realistic characters and marvelous world building that made The Reflective Cause into this enthralling read.
