Release Day Blitz: Jaden by Tijan


               Being framed for murder sucks. Being framed for the murder of your old friend-turned-enemy-turned-maybe-friend-again sucks even worse. The old Sheldon would’ve raised hell, but no, I’ve been nice. I’ve been quiet. I’ve not said a word while the headlines rip me to shreds, but now? All bets are off. I’m going to find out who did this to me and I’m going to make them pay. I don’t care who will get hurt in the process. 

             Everything was covered with trees and forest, but then we got a view of a mansion. It looked like a castle, and my eyes couldn’t help but go wide. Whose was this? And then the front door opened, and I jerked forward in the seat. My seatbelt tightened and I was shoved back, but I couldn’t look away. I couldn’t close my mouth. Everything stopped in that moment. When we slid to a stop and the lawyers got out of the car, I was slower. My body had trouble moving and my legs were stiff. My arms shook and my heart raced as I pulled myself up outside the car. I had to hold onto it or I would’ve fallen. I heard my knees knocking against each other. I couldn’t feel them, but I heard them. “Hello, Sheldon.” The man before me was in his forties. He was dressed in a black business suit, which fit him like a glove, and he gazed back at me. He waited for my reaction. There were no words. “Dad?”

             Hello~ (waves) I didn't begin writing until after undergraduate college. There'd been storylines and characters in my head all my life, but it came to a boiling point one day and I HAD to get them out of me. So the computer was booted up and I FINALLY felt it click. Writing is what I needed to do. After that, I had to teach myself how to write. I can't blame my teachers for not teaching me all those years in school. It was my fault. I was one of the students that was wishing I was anywhere but at school! So after that day, it took me lots of work until I was able to put together something that resembled a novel. I'm hoping I got it right since someone must be reading this profile! And I hope you keep enjoying my future stories.

Release Day Blitz: After Us by Amber Hart


  "Beautiful, lyrical writing and a dangerously suspenseful plot. . .an unforgettable novel that readers will love." --Lucy Connors, author of The Lonesome Young
Sometimes secrets kill. Maybe slowly, maybe painfully. Maybe all at once.
Melissa smiles. She flirts. She jokes. But she never shows her scars. Eight months after tragedy ripped her from her closest friend, Melissa is broken. Inside her grows a tumor, fed by grief, rage, and the painful memory of a single forbidden kiss.
Javier has scars of his own: a bullet wound, and the memory of a cousin shot in the heart. Life in the States was supposed to be a new beginning, but a boy obsessed by vengeance has no time for the American dream. To honor his familia, Javier joins the gang who set up his cousin's murder. The entrance price is blood. Death is the only escape.
These two broken souls could make each other whole again--or be shattered forever.
Our time will come. And we'll be ready.


Amber Hart grew up in Orlando, Florida and Atlanta, Georgia. She now resides on the Florida coastline with family. When unable to find a book, she can be found writing, daydreaming, or with her toes in the sand. She's the author of BEFORE YOU, AFTER US, UNTIL YOU FIND ME, and sequel to UNTIL YOU FIND ME (untitled as of yet). Represented by Beth Miller of Writers House.

Blog Tour: A Necessary Sin by Georgia Cates

Displaying A Necessary Sin Cover Art.jpg

Bleu MacAllister is consumed. A horrific childhood incident has caused every decision in her life to revolve around bringing a monster to justice. With years spent studying The Fellowship, an organized crime brotherhood of liars, thieves, and killers, Bleu will rely on her skills as a special agent to cut Thane Breckenridge off at the knees. But walking hand in hand with retribution means risking collateral damage, in the form of Breckenridge’s son Sinclair—until Sin becomes so much more than Bleu bargained for. She’s always known this undertaking would place her life in danger—she never imagined her heart would be as well


Georgia Cates has outdone herself with book 1 in her new series The Sin Trilogy with A Necessary Sin!!!  I did not think that she could craft a male lead character that could outdo Jack Henry but she accomplished that and more with the sexy solicitor slash future Fellowship leader Sinclair Breckenridge.  This book was a 5 star read for me and I am anxiously awaiting the next book in this action packed series!  I suggest you all but run to one-click this book because I can personally guarantee that you will be far from disappointed.  You will probably fall for Sinclair's charm just as I did!

Stella Bleu Lawrence or Bleu McAllister as she goes by now has lived her entire life since the young age of 12 by preparing herself for avenging the murder of her mother that took place when she was just a young girl at the age of 7.  Working undercover for the FBI in her adult years under the guidance of her adoptive father, she prides herself on knowing every minute detail about The Fellowship, a mob in Scotland that is known for its unsavory and mostly illegal practices; specifically focusing on the leader Thane Breckenridge, who she believes murdered her mother and left her for dead and his son Sinclair.  Taking a leave from her job and putting all of the details into motion, she goes to Scotland to infiltrate The Fellowship through winning Sinclair over so that she can get close enough to Thane to put a bullet in his head.  Her adoptive father, who is in his last months of life due to succumbing to cancer, she yearns to have this "mission" completed before he passes so that he can die with a peace that she is okay.  Believing that she is ready for the undercover mission of a lifetime, Bleu starts by gaining employment at the bar that the members of The Fellowship frequent, under the guise that she is there settling her late aunt's estate before she returns to the US and her photography business.  It is her feisty and sassy mouth that gains the attention of Sinclair, as she is not like any other woman that he has encountered; in or out of The Fellowship.  While Bleu struggles to remind herself to stick to the plan her and her father have laid out and gone over time and time again; Sinclair struggles with secrets of his own, secrets that no one but his father and his 2 best friends know.

"Anticipation is one of the best forms of foreplay."

As Sinclair begins to try and woo Bleu into bed, she fights against his usual wham-bam thank you ma'am tactics, looking for something more meaningful from him as it is the only way to get close to his father.  What she doesn't realize is that with each challenge to Sinclair to show her that he will truly worry about only pleasing her and not just take for himself; he begins to fall for her and the feelings that she begins to have for him could derail every plan that she has ever made.  Keeping her true identity close to the vest and vaguely answering personal questions that Sin throws her way, she reels him in a little at a time until he begins to question how he will ever be happy once she leaves for the States in a few weeks.  It is during these revelations that Bleu begins to realize that she does not want to leave him just yet either.  As they become closer, Sin's uncle becomes increasingly suspicious of Bleu and what her true intentions are toward The Fellowship.  Sin ignores all of the warnings, and believing that he has investigated enough to know she is not a threat to his brotherhood or life, he promises that if he is wrong, he will kill her himself.  Little does he know that he words will come back to haunt him and most probably end their relationship for good.

Holy Hell what a cliff hanger!  This reader has never minded a cliff hanger at the end of an amazing story, as it fuels the anticipation of the next book with thoughts of what could possibly happen next.   A Necessary Sin was no different for me.  I was in shock with the turn the story took in the last pages of book 1 but it was the perfect ending to the first part of what I know will continue to be a fantastically amazing story.  This book is a MUST MUST MUST READ!!!!!  Incredibly job Georgia!!

Georgia Cates was born to write. Her talent is impeccable. This new series The Sin Trilogy book 1 has it all. It’s fast paced, consuming and packed with a delectable - dangerous plot!!!!!
In this gripping story you will find that the hero and heroine have more in common from birth on. They were groomed and trained to be lethal if necessary. To have cold hearts. And above all to trust no one! Well when you find someone that is so like you……you can’t help but become enamoured and infatuated……. And that could be a sin!
“Mark my words. That girl’s lying in wait. She’s the devil in the most beautiful form and she’s here to sabotage us.’ -Abram
A Necessary Sin is full of betrayal, family tradition and heartbreak. When you live by a code that makes you powerful, heartless and dangerous it can be daunting and lonely.  Watching Sin and Bleu let down their guard bit by bit was captivating, exhilarating and sexy.
She’s come to know me well enough to predict the story within the book before opening it.” -Sin
Sinclair Breckenridge is in traineeship to take over his father’s command as head of the Brotherhood. It’s a private secret group that live by their own rules. They execute swiftly and punish anyone that does not follow the strict rules. Sin was born and bred for this role. When love blinds him, the boundaries get blurred and he must find a way to keep her. But does he really know her?
Bleu MacAllister is out for vengeance. It has been her sole mission in life. Along the way her icy heart thaws for the first time ever. This leaves her in a quandary. Is it too late for her? For them? Will she survive?
The danger level escalates….. My heart broke for these two people that are stuck between a rock and a hardplace. The web is tangled, tangling and it could be deadly….
Georgia Cates knows how to weave a story filled with intrigue and suspense. I am a fan of many of her books. I can’t wait for The Next Sin due in February. I need more Sin. He’s so sinfully delicious! Actually I really like his depth of character, flaws and strengths - they make him complete. They make him a tragic hero. They are my favorite kind. I need more of their tangled love story.
Get captured by this sinful tale. I give it 5 STARS*****

Romantic Suspense just happens to be my favorite genre to read Georgia Cates delivers an amazing novel that will keep you on the edge of your seats in A Necessary Sin. This was the first book I have read from Ms Cates and I am now definitely a fan! She gives is a tale of revenge that has plot twists and turns I never saw coming.  She is one author that is now on my radar and I cannot wait to see how the story unfolds in the rest of the series.

Bleu McAllister was left for dead after her mother's killer strangled her. Now years later and an accomplished FBI agent, she seeks out revenge on the one person who turned her life upside. She seeks to infiltrate the Brotherhood and kill the man responsible. Her way to get in, my seducing his son. Falling in love was never in the cards for her. Or so she thought...

Sin Breckenridge is the next in line to take over for his father in the Brotherhood. He does not do relationships. He knows that the women in the Brotherhood only see him for one thing so he does not do love. When the hot new waitress as their local bar refuses his advances he knows he has a challenge. He'll end up breaking every rule he has every set for her. Something he never thought he woukd do.

Their relationship grows hot and fast. Bleu thinks she has control of the situation but can she keep all of the secrets and lies in order? What happens when her master plan start falling apart? Is love enough to hold Sin and Bleu together or will family loyalties be stronger? Its a thrilling tale that I that I could not get enough off. Ms Cates was able to draw me into their world and held me there page by page.  I am now a huge fan and cannot wait for more!! 

Sinclair Breckenridge’s POV:
“What happened to no one touching me?” Bleu asks.
Does that mean she doesn’t want me to touch her?
I release her and straighten to look at her face. “Do you want that to apply to me as well?”
“I want things to be very clear so there’s no misunderstanding between us. I won’t give my body to someone who’d fuck me in a storage room or on a desk in the office of a bar. I want to enjoy the pleasure that goes along with great sex, so I will only sleep with a man who is eager to please me. I must be able to trust that you aren’t in it only for yourself. I’ll demand more of you than any other woman ever has, and for that, I’m completely unapologetic.”
“Allow me to be clear with you. I only do what pleases me and that, Bonny Bleu, is what you can trust.”
I’m still holding her so close, we’re nose to nose. “Then I believe we’ve come to an impasse that will bring neither of us any pleasure.”

Blog Tour: Blyssful Lies by J.C. Cliff

★★ RELEASE DAY Dec. 16th & GIVEAWAY Rafflecopter ★★

NewRelease, NA, Erotic, Suspense, Captive, Romance

Blyssful Lies by J.C. CLIFF
Genre: Contemporary Suspense Erotic Romance
Release Date: December 16th, 2014


Learning how to survive in her new world, Julianna has no choice but to play “The game of Life.” Except it's Nick's game, and his rules apply. Captivity, drugs, and submission are the cards that are dealt, and it's a losing game. Biding her time as she waits for her rescuers, it's far from smooth sailing, because all too quickly the rules abruptly change as Nick takes matters into his own hands... As the drama unfolds, and hesitating to interfere, Travis has everything to lose should he decide to step in, including his life. It's opposition at its finest – freedom versus control as Nick and Julianna face the ultimate battle of wills. While Travis has the uncanny ability to manipulate her with a single touch, Nick struggles to conquer her body, mind, and soul. It's every man for themselves as each have their own secret agenda, including Julianna, whose plan is simple: survive.

I didn't believe that anything could top Blyss, book one The Blyss Trilogy, but JC Cliff has outdone herself with the second book in this amazing series.  Blyssful Lies picks up exactly where Blyss left the reader hanging, and believe me I waited with baited breath for this next book. This book was a 5 star read for me and I suggest that you grab this amazing series.

 The reader is back in the cabin with Travis and Jules, wondering as we turn each page if Nick is hot on their tails.  I know that I held my breath and hoped that he wouldn't because although Travis was part of the plan that took Jules from her father and her fiance, the chemistry between her and Travis was undeniable.  And I won't lie when I say I was rooting them for to finally each give in to their true feelings without the restraints of the cameras, drugs and Nick's watchful eye holding them back.  And boy did I get my wish in a completely hot and sexy scene that only JC can write in such a way that gets the reader HOT HOT HOT. With Jules and Travis finally together and confessing how they feel about each other; I found myself starting to really like Travis, despite the fact that he worked for Nick and was a part of a business that specialized in taking women away from their lives to train them for men who hand picked them for their pleasure alone.  

Travis was so caring when it came to Jules, making sure that she felt safe even though Travis knew they were racing against the clock, and that makes the reader fall in love with him a little at a time.  Characteristics that I look for and I love in an alpha male character.  Travis does everything that he can to ensure that Jules is safe, under any circumstances.  He teaches her to shoot and has her act out different scenarios when showing her the way to the bunker that is hidden on the property.  Although Jules believes that most of his preparations are unnecessary; she goes along with it and the reader can infer that she does she because she wants to please Travis, as he has come to mean something important to her in the time she has spent with him, even if she doesn't completely remember him.   

And wow, can I say that Stryker was a fantastic addition to the story.  I really loved his character and I won't lie that I want to see more of him.  I hope that JC gives this reader her wish.  This book had me on the edge of my seat yearning to know what would happen next at the same time hoping that what I thought was coming didn't actually happen.  This book ends on a cliff hanger that will have you gasping in shock and also saying I need book 3 like YESTERDAY.  JC Cliff is an amazing new author who has the ability to pull the reader in with her words and I cannot wait to see what else she has in store for her readers.  This series is a MUST READ for everyone! I promise that you will not be disappointed!

Blyssful Lies is the second book in the Blyss Trilogy. I thought the first book Blyss was amazing but damn if this didn't top it 100%!  This is a trilogy so there will be another book so as you may have already figured out it ends in a cliffy.. a huge disturbingly frightening cliffy! Even though I never give a cliffy a 5 star there was no way I was not given this a huge 5 stars!  Even though some might find this story quite disturbing I freaking loved every minute of it so far.. I am really getting tired of the same old love story and this story so far is nothing ordinary it will keep you on your toes and having many WTF moments.  The chemistry between these characters is off the charts and damn if J.C. Cliff hasn't found her way into being one of my authors.  I don't want to give to much away because even the littlest of hints or teasers will give the story line away, but I am hoping ones that are reading this review have already read the first book.

This story continues the journey and captivity of Julianna and her captors Nick and Travis.  You will get more insight into the mind of Nick which in a way I started to like him but that was all thrown to bits after the first few chapters... but damn he sounds like one sexy specimen.  Travis is a whole other ballgame and in the first book I really connected with him and hoped for him to turn into the hero of sorts but as you all know that didn't happen in Blyss... but will it happen in Blyssful Lies???  This book will seriously test your patience and your mind because the mind blowing things that happen will leaving you spinning.  Will Julianna finally be free or will more lies and deceit build that she will have no clue who to trust anymore?  

You have to pick up these fist 2 books ASAP!  I am sitting on pins and needles awaiting the third book ... please hurry J.C. Cliff I am not sure how much longer I am going to be able to wait without starting to stalk you or message you repeatedly... hahahahaha that will never happen..maybe??? 

J.C. Cliff has orchestrated quite a suspenseful series. It's edge of your seat stuff. It's totally dynamic, original and exhilarating. She has big talent and weaved a web that engages the reader completely.

In book 2 - Blyssful Lies, the action heats up. We see Nick go a bit mental and Travis do what he does best- protect! Him and Julianna do what they need to survive the danger. We learn more about there circumstances. We feel their undeniable connection and how it's complicated and undeniable.

"You seduced me into your fine web of lies and deceit." Julianna

I am a Travis fan. What a strong hero. He's brawny, intelligent and deep down he has a heart. He's a total Alpha and it's addictive. You will be drawn to him too.

"I have never needed anyone. Never! That is, until you came along. I f...... need you." -Travis

Nick is a nut.. Lol you will find his scheming ways sinful and immoral.

I promise you will enjoy this book from start to finish and yearn for more. I think this review is best kept brief to ensure the most optimal reading experience. It is an EXPERIENCE....

I give it 5 STARS for so many reasons. Grab it and find out why it's one I highly recommend.

J.C. Cliff is an independent author who strives to deliver a strong story line, keeping the reader captivated throughout. She loves the element of surprise, creating unique twists and turns while creating thrill and suspense. Oh yes, and lets not forget, making a little explicit romance happen in between. She's a die hard 80's rock'n roll fan, loves the ocean and salt water fishing. What does she do when she's not raising kids, running a business, and doing all the tasks that come with being a wife and mother? You got it - writing. It's the ultimate escape from reality when the ocean isn't nearby.

Nick sits down beside me, and he almost takes my breath away. He looks absolutely stunning. Even though he’s a handsome devil, I know he carries a big, red pitchfork. His persona screams debonair and suave, and his suit hugs his broad shoulders perfectly. He seems unequivocally radiant and contented, and his brown and gold-flecked eyes gleam with happiness. A waiter appears, interrupting my perusal of Nick. “Excuse me, sir. May I get your usual for you and a glass of wine for the lady?” “Yes, thank you,” Nick replies. Concerned my acting skills may falter at some point, I begin to grow nervous again. I hate this paranoia. I curse myself again for not taking at least one dose of Blyss today, just so I could be able to get through this evening without foible. Nick gently lifts my chin, garnering my attention. “What are you thinking about, love?” I steal a deep breath and think to myself, The show must go on. My lips curve into a small smile and I flirtatiously flutter my lashes. “Do you come here often?” Nick smiles with mild amusement, his eyes twinkling. “Yes, you could say that.” I don’t bother asking what type of wine he’s ordered. I’m sure I wouldn't know the difference between a ten dollar, versus an eighty dollar bottle of wine anyway. I rarely drink, let alone indulge myself with expensive wine. “I also see you have a group of fans,” I comment as I wave my hand around the large room. “Every woman here seems to be eyeing you up and down, like you’re a famous rock star.” Why couldn’t you have taken one of those women instead of me? His grin broadens. “You seem surprised.” “What, the fact women find you attractive?” I shrug my shoulders. “I won’t sit here and lie to you, Nick. You are a very good-looking man. I’m sure you could have any woman you want with the snap of your fingers.” “Yes, well, you will never have to worry about other women. I’ve had a lifetime of them, biding my time until the very day I could finally have you.” He leans in closer, all playfulness pushed aside. “You are the only woman I want to come to me with the snap of my fingers,” he pauses, arching a brow, “and you are the first woman who’s wanted to tell me no.” The way he’s looking at me, pinning me down with his heated stare, I can feel the apples of my cheeks begin to warm. So much is riding on my acting abilities, namely my ass as I pretend to like this man and try building some sort of alliance with him.
