Travis by Nicole Edwards Blog Tour and double giveaway


Review: 5 smoking hot stars
I was gifted a copy of Travis in return for an honest review.

OMgoodness ladies will I ever get enough of the Walker brothers?  The answer is nope NEVER.
Who doesn't love all of the smoking hot cowboys and all their kinky ways(fanning myself). Travis is my favorite of the Alluring Indulgence books so far.  I could not put it down.  As I was reading and things were about to happen I would hold my breath or talk to myself.  You know you all do it.  You see things coming and you're like OMG or ooohhhh this is going to get good.

So ladies I could go on for HOURS about the story and all the juicy details that are involved with Travis trying to figure his love life out after what happened at the end of Zane but I'm afraid I don't want to ruin it for ya'll.  You need to read it and I don't to be the one to spoil the experience. I will say Nicole Edwards knows how to bring the hotness.  This book is so stinking hot I was almost embarrassed reading it in front of my family(not out loud).  I felt like they just knew by looking at me lol.

Besides all of the steamy sex there is an amazing story being told in this book.  Nicole drew me in from the beginning and she always makes me fall in love with the character.  She has an amazing talent and I can't wait to read about the rest of the Walker brothers.

About the author:

About me... hmmm...

Ok, I've been asked to provide a little bit of "real" information about myself. That's harder to do than you think it is, especially for someone who has difficulty talking about themselves. ;) But, here goes...

I've been writing for as long as I can remember. Ever since I was a kid, I loved creative writing and as I got older, I got acquainted with those voices in my head and that led to putting my stories on paper. And now, here I am all these years later, spending my days doing what I love most. I decided to give myself over to writing full time in 2012 and I haven't looked back. I spent nearly 13 years in the corporate world and I have to say, this is a bit of a change (just a little) and I am loving every second of it.

I live in Texas with my husband and three amazing kids and our two beloved dogs. If I'm not writing, I'm usually reading. I devour everything I can get my hands on. I love romance of any type and being an Indie author myself, I'm always looking for new Indies to support. I haven't always been into reading, but about eleven years ago, I picked up a book - I'm pretty sure it was by Nora Roberts - and from there, I haven't stopped. Before I began writing full time, and my characters started taking up so much of my time, I was reading about 200 books a year. That has dwindled somewhat, but there isn't a day that goes by that I don't read.

An interesting fact... I don't watch television - aside from the occasional news anyway. I will go see a movie or two rarely, but for the most part, I get all of my entertainment from a book. Some of my favorite authors include J.R. Ward, Suzanne Brockmann, Lora Leigh, Jane Rylon, Lori Foster, and Jaci Burton just to name a few.

Bare Assets by M.L. Stephens Release Day


With nothing but shattered dreams and a busted heart to fuel the way, Angela Fletcher drove out of Arkansas and never looked back.

Six years later, the new and improved version of the girl she used to be steered clear of romance, love and late night promises. The only pillow talk Angela engaged in these days, was making sure the person on the other pillow knew to lose her number as soon as he left the bed. She only had room for one love in her life and that was Bare Assets, the gentleman's club she poured her heart and soul into.

Dean Murray was the devil in disguise and had left behind enough broken hearted women to populate a small country. Angela would know. She was an expert markswoman who was skillfully self-trained at shooting down the good, the bad and the ugly of all masculine targets. After all, as the owner of the most successful strip club in Dallas, Texas, it was her business to know men.

Just as she begins to fall for Dean's silky words and passionate ways, her past and present unexpectedly collide and a meticulously planned future turns into unpredictable chaos. Is the smooth talking, denim wearing devil responsible for the chaos? Or have the secrets she left buried in Arkansas, coming back to haunt her?

Changing the subject before it became too serious, Angie opened the bedroom door and glanced over her shoulder. "I don't know about you, but I haven't had a single thing to eat all day. If I don't get something soon, I'm going to eat the wood off this door."

Grinning from ear to ear, he had to say it, "I have something to appease your appetite, but I'm afraid the door doesn't play into my lust filled scenario."

Laughing, she tightened the rope on her robe and wittily responded, "I would love to take part in your version of a meal, but I'm afraid I need to rely on the basic food groups for now."

"And why is that?" he asked, joining her at the door.

"Something tells me that once I truly get a taste of you, I may never want to leave this room again.
About the author:

I'm always clicking away at the keyboard, but when I'm not, my family, two dogs, and a very peculiar cat keep me on my toes! There's never a boring moment at my desk!

Besides my obvious love for coffee and all things caffeinated, I love to travel. The occasional tourist stop is fun, but I'm a back road kind of gal. Take me off the beaten path. I want to meet the ordinary people behind the culture.

My crazy family includes a husband, four kids, two grandbabies, two dogs and a cat. That's right. Life is totally insane, and so I write.

Speaking of writing, I've been spinning stories around the campfire since I can remember. Poetry was second nature and as a teen and young adult, short stories were constantly being penned. I'm an avid reader who loves almost all genres. Let's face it! A good read is a good read, regardless of whether it takes place in the future, the present, the past or with ghosts.

Adam's Apple by Liv Morris Blog Tour


Adam Kingsley reigns as the young prince of Manhattan. Everything he touches turns to gold making him the envy of Wall Street. Women swoon at his feet, money falls out of his pockets, and his killer good looks are as wicked as sin. A dangerous trifecta.

What more could a thirty-two year old man wish for? Maybe that his life never changes and his past stays far away? Sounds reasonable but life seldom is.

Kathryn Delcour is a beautiful and alluring socialite with unique erotic tastes. When she suddenly appears on the New York City social scene, Adam finds her too tempting to resist. He has to have her, but she is warned to stay away from him and his player ways. She tries her hardest to keep him at arm's length however Kathryn's arms may not be strong enough to hold Adam at bay.

Hidden secrets, Kathryn's passion for an ancient sexual practice, and a former business partner wanting to inflict a deadly revenge set the scene for a wild ride as Adam tells the story in his own words.

Review: 4.5 stars

This cover is beautiful and I really liked the story.  As I started reading this book I was thinking to myself something is off here.  The wording or something is different.  Then it hit me the wording is off because it's written in the male POV.  I guess I was a little slow that day.  This is the first book I have read that is written completely in the male POV and I loved it.  After reading so many books from the female POV it was refreshing to have it not seem so mushy. Sometimes it was funny how blunt his thoughts were.

I loved the story of a developing relationship that changes the player but at the same time the story has drama.  At times I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens next.  Especially towards the end but that's all you get from me ladies.

I love the chemistry between Kathryn and Adam.  No matter how many people warn her against him she is willing to give him a chance. Then you add in the tantric sex aspect and it get hot.  I can't wait for more of the series and more of Kathryn teaching Adam about tantric sex. Grab this book and see hot their tantric experience is.

Conflict by M.S. Willis Blog Tour Double Review and Giveaway

***Content Warning - This is a new adult fiction with mature themes. It contains graphic sexual situations, mature language and explicit description of sexual violence.***

Conflict is the second book in the Control series. This description contains spoilers for those who have not read book one in the series, entitled Control.

Private Investigator, Paige Stone has always appreciated the independence of her life, however, her world was pitched upside down when she and her roommates were attacked and nearly killed. As a result of the attack by Chris, Paige now finds herself dependent upon Daemon Pierce for a place to live as she hides from Chris. Paige has never lived with a man before and demands that Daemon consider her a "roommate" only, even though it goes against her own desires.

Strong-willed and arrogant, Daemon Pierce has been working hard to protect Paige from Chris and from herself. Letting go of his life as a womanizer, Daemon tries to prove to Paige that she can trust him, even though he refuses to enlighten her as to his past. Daemon struggles to comply with Paige's ridiculous demand to be "roommates" and quickly finds that he has fallen in love with the girl who does nothing but push him away.

Chris is still on the loose and Paige becomes impatient at the amount of time it is taking the authorities to apprehend him. Paige takes it upon herself to hunt Chris down, while still refusing to ask for Daemon's assistance. When Paige discovers a message left by Chris, she devices a plan to locate him while keeping Daemon in the dark as to her plans. Paige's emotional journey once again places her in dangerous situations and when secrets are revealed and decisions are made, Paige has no choice but to look deep within herself to see if she can finally trust the man who will stop at nothing to save her.

Laura's Review:
Conflict has made it official that if M.S. Willis writes it I will read it. I loved it!  However, I couldn't pick a favorite between Control and Conflict because they were both amazing and she did such a great job of picking the story up where she left off and continuing it.  In my opinion the fact that there is the continuity and that I can’t pick one from the other highlights her level of writing.
As I was reading I let out a little sigh and smiled.  It felt like I was catching up with friends I haven’t seen for a while.  I did miss Alex and Annie but it made sense with the story line that they would have smaller roles in this part of the story.  I’m sure we will see more of both of them in Conquer and I can’t wait.
Paige and Daemon, wow, are they hot!!! Even when they weren't hot and heavy in the bedroom they were still steamy.  I loved the development of the two as a couple throughout this book and the story line with them had me in tears at one point.  That’s all I’ll say about that J.
However, I have to say that David really got me in this book.  I wish he was my best friend.  He is so funny and he is always there to support Paige, no matter how crazy her schemes are.  I was cracking up often but I laughed so hard at the exchange between him and Mrs. Hugsmybottom! I got strange looks from my coworkers from all the laughing.
M.S. Willis is an amazing author and she brought these characters to life for me and in both books took me on a roller coaster of emotions.  I can’t wait for Conquer so I can see my friends again.

Stephanie's Review:
Do y'all know how much I love M.S. Willis's books??  Conflict is her second published book and it's a continuation of Control, which I thought was the best book I read all year.  It still is one of them.  Conflict picks up right where Control left off.  The characters definitely come to life in these books and you feel like they are your friends.  You're right there watching everything unfold.  I love books like this.

So, back to our favorite characters, Paige and Daemon.  Daemon is housing Paige in his condo so he can help protect her from Chris.  Y'all know that crazy Psycho Chris??  I mean, really.  Some people will just loose their minds because they were rejected.  Get a life dude!  

Did I mention Paige and Daemon?  Boy, howdy!  Their sexual chemistry is off the chart H.O.T.  I don't see how these two have refrained from having hot monkey sex for so long.  Daemon has the makings of a saint!  Once they finally come together...WOW.  H.O.T.  

But this book is more than hot monkey sex.  It's about an unstable individual gunning to hurt friends and loved ones of the one girl who turned him down.  Everyone is afraid for Paige...except Paige.  She is one stubborn cookie.  What will it take for her to get it through her head, Chris is a no joke bad dude???  (read the book, so you can see how bad!)

The third and final book for Paige and Daemon comes out next month.  I'm so excited to see how their story ends.  Paige has had lots to process about the people she has surrounded herself with.  Will she learn to lean on Daemon?  How will things be between Paige and Alex?  What will become of David & Annie?

Look for Conquer release toward the end of August to see how and where this story goes.

Love Resisted by Melanie Conida Cover Reveal

For Allie Baxter, love was never something she had to worry about. She was loved by her friends, her family, her husband … until the day it was ripped away. Losing love was the deepest pain Allie had ever endured, and it was an agony she vowed to avoid feeling ever again. Crippled with guilt over her loss, for five years Allie served her self-appointed exile from the daily comforts offered by friends and family, only to return and attempt to fit herself back into their open arms—even if she knew she didn’t deserve it. Mike Lawson was not something Allie expected; the love of a man was not something Allie was prepared to want. The spark of desire that had long ago died inside her suddenly returned, bringing the memories of her pain with it. She swore she would never allow herself to love again … but how long could love be resisted?


Allie stepped out her front door and immediately missed the cool air-conditioned condo she just left. It took a moment to adjust to the heat in the air as she locked her front door. Southern California may not be hot and humid like the east coast, but this was a hot for San Diego in June. It should make for long afternoon at her nephews outdoor graduation. She was making her way down the steps when she heard her neighbor’s voice, “Well don’t you clean up nice.” She wasn’t expecting to run into Mike Lawson just yet, so it caught her totally off guard and she stopped abruptly. If she were being completely honest with herself, she had hoped to avoid him entirely—forever would be good—but since they were neighbors, it wasn’t a realistic expectation. Her need to avoid him and all of his hotness was becoming a strong necessity for her self-preservation.

His ability to melt her with only a smile was beginning to wear her down. Her only defense against him was to be snarky. Pulling her I’m-the-queen-bitch persona tightly around her, she turned to him, cocked her hip, and placed her fist appropriately as she said, “That implies that you think I look like shit the rest of the time, Lawson. You really need to work on how to compliment a lady.” Raising her eyebrows at him in challenge, she continued while gesturing to her entire body, “I’ll have you know, this is just another level of fabulous I'm demonstrating here.”

The man had the nerve to throw a huge grin her way, once again showing her that he was not fazed in the slightest by her snarky attitude. Just another reason to stay the hell away from the man, she thought as she finished making her way down the steps. It was becoming harder to ignore him on a physical level. Not to mention the fact that he made her belly flutter and her heart rate pick up when she saw him. Every time she thought about his effect on her, it pissed her off. She knew it was paramount to resist him at all costs.

What she really needed to do was move the hell out of the condo near his. The problem with that was, she loved her new place. Well, it wasn’t hers yet, but she planned on making an offer when the landlord’s lease was up. Even though she only found this place because of Mike, she secretly hoped he would randomly up and move, solving her problem immediately. She really wanted to stay there. It finally felt that she had come to a point where she was okay being alone, and she wasn’t living with a ghost anymore. It was almost like she had moved on … maybe a little bit … almost. But just because she felt that way, didn’t mean that she had moved on, moved on. That wasn’t about to happen, may never happen ever again … she couldn’t let it.

Her thoughts were interrupted by McHottness himself when he fell into step next to her and said, “Maybe so, but then how else would I get that fire snapping in your eyes? Mission accomplished if you ask me.” Shocked by his blatant admittance that he was trying to rile her up, she swung her head his direction to say something when he winked at her. Once again shocking her and rendering her temporarily speechless. She was this close to kicking him in the shin when he continued, “I take it you are on your way to the graduation as well. Want a lift?”

Thankful for his question to bring her out of her shocked moment, she said. “A lift? It’s more like a hoist. I need a damn trampoline to get up into that truck of yours.” And as if the great Gods of Nastiness were smiling down on her, she snatched the opportunity to up her game from snarky to bitchy. “Just what kind of message are you trying to put out there anyway? Everyone knows a big truck like that only says the owner suffers from little dick complex.”

They were walking and had made their way around back to where the garages were located so she didn’t see, only heard him huff a laugh before saying. “There certainly is no little dick to have a complex about. I assure you …” He mumbled something at the end, but she didn’t catch it. Not wanting to prolong the conversation she ignored the desire to ask him to repeat himself. Pointing her keys at the shiny red Mini-Cooper to unlock it when Mike popped the bottom of her outstretched hand, causing her keys to fly up in the air.

As soon as they were airborne, he reached out and grabbed them before she could process what was happening. Shocked again, she looked over at him only to see that damn smile once more before snarling at him, “What the hell did you do that for?”

“I offered you a ride, you didn’t decline, only mocked my truck. Therefore, by not rejecting it, you inadvertently accepted it.” He shrugged, smiled bigger, and finished with, “Well, at least in my book you did, so get in the truck, Baxter.” Turning away from her, he walked toward his truck, her keys in hand. Still a little startled at his maneuver to get her keys, yet slightly impressed since it was something she would do, she stood there and watched as he made his way to the oversized truck. When he stopped at the passenger door and looked back at her, he laughed and said, “Oh come on, I’ll give you a boost. And I won’t even try to look up your skirt … scouts’ honor.”

Shaking her head, she made her way toward him as she grumbled, “Is that the box-car-building kind of scout or the cookie-peddling ones? I bet you probably looked great in that green sash.” Tossing her purse on the floorboard of the truck, she reached up and grabbed the handle to lift herself in but turned her head and looked back at him over her shoulder. “I bet the little beret looked good, too.”

Feeling like she had been bitchy enough to make him not want to have her for company, she turned back to the open truck door. Preparing to jump in, she let out a squeal when Mike’s big hands wrapped around her waist and hefted her effortlessly into the cab. Turning quickly to glare down at him for doing such a thing, she only met his intent stare as he said, “I look good in anything I wear sweetheart. Now buckle up, wouldn’t want you to fall out or anything.” And then he closed the door.

But that’s mostly because she has a thing for the coach. When she is not doing all of the above, you can find her obsessed with a group of fictional characters all vying for a spot on the page of whatever she’s working on. It’s a fun and crazy life to lead, but wouldn’t have it any other way.
