Release Day Blitz and Review: Shaken, Not Stirred by Sawyer Bennett

Welcome to Last Call...

a bar where the drinks are cold and the nights are scorching hot.

Casey Markham is a man-eater in a rut. Swearing off relation- ships may keep her heart safe, but she’s beginning to question if her casual flings will ever leave her satisfied. She’s wondering if it’s finally time to let go of the past and stop letting history control her future.

Bad boy biker, Tenn Jennings can’t get Casey off his mind. A chance encounter with the beautiful blond has left its mark, and now he’s determined to prove her wrong about everything she thought she knew about men.

It’s safe to say… Casey Markham has met her match.

SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED can be read as a stand-alone.

The Last Call Series: Tenn’s Story 

Release: March 17, 2015 
Publisher: Big Dog Books, LLC 


Shaken Not Stirred was the fifth book in the Last Call Series but can be read as a standalone.  The other books in this series were awesome as well... On The RocksMake It A DoubleSugar On The Edge and With A Twist.  I would give this book a 5 stirring stars!  I have read all the books in this series and was happy to see Casey and Tenn's story come out finally.  Sawyer Bennett is a brilliant author and should be forever known as one of my favorites.  Her writing style definitely keeps you enthralled and entertained to the point where you devour the book and can't put it down.  And the steamy scenes are off the charts smoking hot!  Divas you want a hot book with a crazy sexy man who has soft heart for certain things but can also take can control and a leading lady that is anything but perfect but is sassy and tells men how it is.. Well this book is totally for you!  

Casey doesn't do relationships.. she has her reasons.. when men get to close she will push them away.. she is all for monogamous sex relationships but when you add love to that equation she will bolt quicker than you can wipe the sleep from your eyes.  So when a broody sexy man helps her out on the side of the rode she won't know what will hit her.. 

Tenn has a past of his own and he has a responsibility of being a dad.. but when he divorces his ex she will move his daughter far away and they just doesn't work for him.. so he finds himself picking up his life and moving to be near her.  He knows his ex wants him back and will do anything to make that happen.. but he wants nothing to do with her.. when he finds the perfect distraction named Casey he will find more than just his hormones getting involved but will she take all that he has to give or push him away??  Well little does she know he gets what he wants and what he wants is Casey.

"The men you've been with? They merely stir you and you don't need to be gently stirred." I tell her simply.
One eyebrow drops while the other one rises in skepticism.  "I don't need stirred?"
"It's like this. You're not a woman that needs to be treated with kid gloves.  You don't need coddled or unnecessarily flattered.  You're to sharp and savvy for that.  In fact, you're almost too sharp and savvy for that.  It's made you wary and shielded, which has in turn made you stagnant.  You're stuck in a rut of your own making....maybe for self-preservation, maybe not.. but your boundaries have stunted the woman you're meant to be.  It's like the cocktails you make when you bartend.  You need to be shaken, not stirred."  

Fate and Secrets will play a part in this story and when all has played out will these 2 accept the challenge they have laid out for one another or will they book go the other way?

GO get this book now!  It was awesome!  Thanks for another great story and I look forward to sooo much more in the future!

Eleven months ago, bartender and weird-shirt-wearing extraordinaire Roxy and Officer Reece Anders had a one night stand. Well, kind of. She’s been in love with him since she was fifteen, and he wishes that night they shared never happened. She’s sworn him off forever, but the past and future collide, forcing her to rely on the one man who broke her heart not once, but twice. Her best friend since birth has been in a long-term care facility since he became a victim of a hate crime years ago, and the person who put him in there is out of prison and wanting to make amends with him and Roxy. She’s not sure she has room for forgiveness in her and when she begins to receive frightening messages and is on the receiving end of escalating violence, she thinks she knows who is to blame. The man who already destroyed one life already. But Reece isn’t convinced. The threats are too personal, and even if Roxy doesn’t believe him, he’s not willing to let anyone hurt her. Including himself. He’s already messed up more than once when it comes to Roxy and he’s not going to let history repeat itself.

Someone—was it Melvin?—catcalled as Reece led me down the hall, and my cheeks flushed. “Okay, heman, I can walk all by my little self.”

He cast a look over his shoulder at me as he opened the office door. “I’m sure you can.”

Then he pulled me inside.

My gaze flipped to the roses—the roses!—but before I could say a word, he closed the door and my back was pressed against it, his hands planted on either side of my head and his face right in mine. Like right there, within kissing distance.


“So, I was at my father’s place in New Jersey most of the day, and you know, he lives out near the Pine Barrens, so service is shit.”

I nodded even though I really wasn’t processing what he was saying as I was too busy staring at his mouth. Those lips, fuller on the bottom, drove me to distraction.

“I pull out of his driveway and I have all these messages from Dennis,” he continued, and I finally caught on to what he was talking about. “I honestly thought he was messing with me at first.”

I cringed. “He . . . um, he wasn’t.”

He shot me a bland look. “That much I figured out.” His hands slid on the door, stopping just shy of touching my shoulders. “What did he do to you?”

“What?” I blinked.

“What did that bastard do to make you throw a book through his windshield?”

Oh. Oh. My heart was now wiggling along with my stomach. “He really didn’t do anything. I just lost my cool. He wanted to talk to me, and I didn’t want to talk to him.”

“You don’t have to talk to him.”

“That’s what Dennis said, but I shouldn’t have damaged his car.”

A muscle flexed along his right jaw. “That’s true.” He shook his head. “Damn, Roxy, can’t say I’m surprised.”

My brows flew up. “You’re not?”

He laughed under his breath. “Babe, you’ve always had a hell of a temper on you.”

Ah, that was kind of true. “Is that a good thing or a bad thing?”

Reece cocked his head to the side. “A sexy thing, but vandalism and destruction of property doesn’t look good on you, sweets.”

“No. It doesn’t match my manicure.” I raised my hands, flashing him the blue nails.

He laughed again and then he sobered up, just like that. Cop Face was on, and yeah . . . the low coiling in my stomach told me I found Cop Face arousing. “You’re lucky. He could’ve pressed charges, and this conversation would be going in a whole different direction.”

My own half smile slipped off my face. “I know. It’s . . . I was just with Charlie, and he’s . . .” Unable to continue, I forced a casual shrug I didn’t feel. “What are you going to do with me?”

His lips parted as his chest rose with a deep breath, then his gaze dropped to my mouth, and his expression tightened. He looked . . . he looked hungry. “I have lots of ideas.”

<a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00TKLSRIC/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00TKLSRIC&linkCode=as2&tag=sasdivboobl02-20&linkId=4ZVPFBID2ASMF56K">Redeeming Kyle: 69 Bottles #3</a><img src="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=sasdivboobl02-20&l=as2&o=1&a=B00TKLSRIC" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" /> https://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/redeeming-kyle  https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/redeeming-kyle/id966936080?mt=11&uo=4&at=10lR4v

Falling in love was the easy part…

For Talon Carver, the commanding and charismatic lead singer of the rock band 69 Bottles, life has never been better—or worse. His heart’s at a full 11 for Addison Beltrand, his feisty PR rep. But admitting it was a much different tune. The dilemma’s even more complicated when adding his other lover to the mix: Kyle Black, the band’s handsome, sweet and sexy manager.

Why ruin a good thing, right? Things are pretty damn perfect for the trio—in and out of bed. But just when they find their best rhythm with each other, a rocky night in Minneapolis forces all three to reexamine their feelings—and take their relationship to new levels.

But can love be enough?

The band’s soaring popularity, along with the pressures of maintaining an unconventional relationship on a high-profile rock tour, start to take their toll. When Addison starts to fall apart, Talon and Kyle must come to terms with how important she is to them both.

Can Addison find the strength to be their glue once more?

What happens when the world goes on…but yours suddenly stops?

When everything looks like it’s going to fall apart? Is love enough to bring Talon, Kyle, and Addison back to each other’s arms…and with it, the magic that true redemption can bring?

69 Bottles Redeeming Kyle is the third and final book in the series and Zoey Derrick did not disappoint and even managed to turn up the smoking hot factor a knotch if that is even possible. I highly recommend this entire series to any reader looking for a steamy read that will sure to make your panties wet but not for the faint of heart because when this threesome gets together there is enough heat to burn down a building or make your clothes spontaneously combust!!! This book was a 4 star read for me and I suggest that you stop what you are doing and one-click these books immediately!

Once again the reader is faced with the unorthodox relationship between 69 Bottles lead singer Talon, their sexy manager Kyle and the love of Bon their lives and PR person Addison but in an entirely new way, one that I honestly never expected from this couple but totally devoured in one sitting and I guarantee that you will too!!

But big Talon and Kyle shock her to he very core when they express how excited they are, no matter how early in their relationship or unplanned the pregnancy is and vow to be there with her every step of the way.

As the tour begins winding down and Addison begins to change as she becomes more pregnant, the Dynamo. Of their relationship begins to change as well, with Kyle who has always been the level headed one freaking out with his impending fatherhood determined that knowing which of the. Is actually the father is not something either of them yearns to know, they become shocked  to the core during one of Addison's doctor visits which results in Kyle walking away from both the man and woman that he loves. Talon tries to take his place and be what Addison needs but he is coming up short because what Addison really needs aside from him is something g that he is unable to provide for her despite all of his money and fame, and that is having Kyle ha k in their relationship and their bed.

As Kyle struggles with demons that he long since buried when he became sober years ago, Addison struggles to deal with the breakdown of their threesome dynamic which does a number on her health, ultimately landing her in the hospital.  Will Kyle come to his senses and be the man that Addison knows he is and that both her and Talon need or will he walk away for good? You will have to read this steamy conclusion to find out!

Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway: Pretty Pink Ribbons by K.L. Grayson

Title: Pretty Pink Ribbons

Author: K.L. Grayson

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: March 24, 2015

Dying . . . Dead . . . Deceased . . .

It doesn’t matter how many times I say it or how many different names I give it, it still means the same thing. One of these days I’ll be nothing but a passing memory, a familiar face in a forgotten photo. But there's three things I need before this life of mine ends . . . I need to tell him I love him more than life itself. I need to feel the strength of his arms wrapped around me just one more night. Most of all, I need him to forgive me. Eight years ago I broke the heart of the only man I’ve ever loved and today I’m moving home in hopes that he’ll let me put it back together. I’m not sure how many breaths I have left, but I’ll use each and every last one fighting for what I destroyed. My name is Laney Jacobs and this is my journey.

“I wish it was someone else,” she croaks, swallowing hard. “There are thousands of bad people in the world, but it happened to you.” I watch her eyes fill with tears and then I look away. It’s pathetic of me really; that I’m unable to look my best friend in the face when it’s obvious that she is struggling with this almost as much as I am. But I’ve cried my fair share of tears and although I’m certain my tear ducts have yet to dry up, I don’t want to cry tonight. Somehow I know that if I watch Mia break, then I’ll shatter right along with her. “I’m glad it’s me.” She gasps, startled by my words, and I rush to try and explain. “If it wasn’t me, it would be someone else, and I would never wish this upon someone else. You know that saying that God will only give you what you can handle?” She nods. “Sometimes I tell myself that he just thinks I’m really strong and I can handle it, whereas someone else couldn’t.” “Does that help?” she asks. “Does that make you feel better about it?” “No, but it eases my mind. Sometimes when I’m having a good day, it brings me peace, however temporary it may be. But no, it doesn’t make me feel better.” “Peace,” she whispers, seemingly trying the word on for size. “I want you to have peace.”   

Pretty Pink Ribbons by K.L. Grayson is a story of healing; healing after the heartbreak of losing your first love in order to follow your dreams, healing from a disease that you are unable to control as it wreaks havoc on your body, healing from the loss of a the life you wish you had if the choices made so long ago had been different. K.L. Grayson is an amazing author, and I feel in love with the words that flow from her heart onto the page when reading the first book in this series, Where We Belong. Levi Beckford was first introduced to the reader in this first book in the series, and he intrigued me even then, wondering what his story was and if he would find his happily ever after. I was thrilled when I discovered that Pretty Pink Ribbons would be his story and I had no doubt that K.L. Grayson wouldn't disappoint when allowing the reader to devour his story and I was without a doubt correct. This book was 5++ Pink Ribbons for me and I highly suggest that you stop what you are doing and one-click this amazing series. I promise that you will not be disappointed.

Young and hopelessly in love; Laney Jacobs is forced to make a decision that will change the course of her life forever, and not in a way that she had foreseen. When her boyfriend Levi Beckford gives her an ultimatum of staying with him and building a life; while giving up her dream to be a chef or severing their passionate relationship to attend culinary school in California; she chooses her dream instead of the boy that she hopelessly loves. Eight years has not diminished her feelings for Levi, and she knows that now is the time when she needs to return home and tell him how she feels; that there has never been another since him all those years ago and there never will be because he is the one that holds the key to her heart. The reader turns each page with baited breathe wondering how their reunion will be; will he greet her with open arms or will he snub her only remember the hurt that he felt when she left him to follow her dream.

The intensity of the first time that Levi and Laney come face to face after eight long years can be felt through the page, simply by the way in which the author weaves the words and I will admit had me wanting to reach into the story and slap both of them for holding back the true feelings that had with seeing one another again. Although understandable that Levi would be apprehensive to lay it all out and be vulnerable to the girl who broke him; I had hoped that he would at least embrace her as a long lost friend.

With the help of her brother, who was standing by her side with tremendous love and support through one of the most difficult, unnerving and unpredictable times in her life, her long-time friend and neighbor Benny and her feisty best friend Mia; Laney has the fight of her life on her hands; both in winning Levi's love again and with overcoming the tremendously ominous obstacle before her. Yearning for him to fall in love with her all over again without knowing her most stressful and terrifying secret; Laney seems to chip away at the wall that Levi has built around his heart a day at a time until there is nothing left but the love that he still feels for this amazingly brave woman.

This book will make you laugh, and certainly it will make you cry both tears of sadness and of joy but it couldn't have been written any more perfectly than it was! I am in awe of this amazing new author and I cannot wait to see what else she brings us!


This is a story to savor. This book dealt with a delicate topic. Pretty Pink Ribbons swept me away. It broke my heart and pieced it back together one piece at a time.

Laney is a courageous woman. She’s had to make life altering decisions that had an impact on her life. Many years later she again is making decisions that will affect her and the ones she cares for. This is her story. It is beautiful. It is sad. It inspired and encouraged me.

“My biggest regret is that I walked away without telling him how I felt- without telling him how much he meant to me.” -Laney

Levi is a catch. Too bad things had to change and left him feeling numb and discarded. He’s a compassionate hard working individual that has irresistible charm.

“I’m always here for you. I want to be here for you; you just have to let me in.” –Levi

I enjoyed the secondary characters a great deal. They were implemental to Laney and Levi’s life. They helped bring Pretty Pink Ribbons to life along with Levi and Laney.

K.L. Grayson has a gentle way with words. She writes emotional stories that are relevant and memorable.

This second chance romance was full of tender moments. It took me on an emotional journey that will stay with me. It showed us how one deals with a devastating diagnoses but finds the perseverance to forge on while battling for their life and the love of their life. It is a poignant story of redemption, healing and hope.

I give this story 4 STARS!


“Tomorrow is not promised- to anyone- and I think it’s time I start living what life I have left to its fullest potential. At the end of the day, when everything is said and done, I don’t want to look back on my life with regrets.” - Laney

Where to start with Pretty Pink Ribbons… I honestly don’t know… It’s such a courageous and beautifully written story of love, loss, heartbreak, and the courage to stand up and face the most terrifying experience anyone can go through, the battle with cancer. I cannot even imagine the emotions of writing this kind of story because the emotional level as a reader was just gah… I wanted so much to root for Laney and Levi and to have them have their happily ever after but with the struggle of cancer, you never know if they would have it. It’s a valuable lesson that life is too short and to live life with no regrets. KL Greyson just did an outstanding job pouring out her heart and soul into this one and it shows. The emotions just jump off the pages and got stuck in my heart! She is definitely one of my favorite authors and one author everyone should know!

Flashback eight years ago, Laney and Levi where happy in their relationship but hadn’t said those three little words. Levi was ready to move forward but Laney wanted more. She wanted to follow her dreams and that she did. Leaving Levi in St Louis and moving to California to follow her dreams. Levi is heartbroken but moves on. Laney did set out what she wanted to do but in the end it didn’t matter, ten years later she finds a lump in her breast and found herself doing the one thing she could do… return home.

Laney knew having cancer she must make things right with Levi and she would stop at nothing to make it happen. She knew she had to get him to fall in love with her again. If it was the last thing she did… she would make it happen. The only thing, she doesn’t want him to know she is dying. She doesn’t want his love out of pity, but out of his heart.

The story will make you believe in true love, it will make you believe that things happen for a reason, that love will find a way to bring your soulmate back to you. It will teach you to live life to the fullest because tomorrow isn’t always guaranteed. I feel in love with this book and the characters and it just solidified what an amazing author KL Greyson truly is! 5 huge pink ribbon stars from me
