Author Bio:
I’ve always been an avid reader and occasional writer, but only ever for my own eyes! Then, last year, I read my first New Adult novel - and I was hooked.  After consuming a vast e-pile of NA, the burning need to write my own was overwhelming.  And so I started…

Fitting in writing around a demanding job and a wonderfully supportive husband has been, umm, interesting at times but the whole process has been a fantastic experience.  I have been blown away by the friendliness and support shown by the readers, writers and bloggers who make up the NA and Indie communities; online with them is one of my favourite places to hang out!

I have already started the follow-up novel to Curve, Heart, which follows Neve as she starts at university.

Excerpt:
Things like this don’t happen to me.
As we swayed slightly awkwardly in time with the warblings of a ballad being sung by one of those manufactured boybands, I tried to enjoy the moment for what it was: me, Cass Jones, dancing with Rob Meadows at the Sixth Form Christmas party.  
Rob Meadows, star of the school rugby team.  
Rob Meadows, blonde god of gorgeousness.
Me. 
 The evening was coming to an end and, after the rowdy jump-dancing of earlier, the DJ was playing the compulsory slow numbers that signalled the end of the party for some but just the start of the evening for others.  And there I was, still dancing.
The Sixth Form Christmas party was a highlight of the school social calendar, especially as it usually provided significant fodder for the yearbook.  All of Year 13 had started to think about lives beyond school, our small town, even our friends, as part of the university application process.  Consequently, there was a sense of desperation to our attempts to create some happy memories to take with us.  There we were, on the cusp of legal adulthood, yet not really sure of our place in the world.
Neve and I had debated whether or not to even bother going to the party.  As habitual residents of the social periphery, we didn’t really belong to any of the usual cliques found in most high schools.  And we were OK with that, enjoying the sense of irony in watching those cliques shift and re-shape, occasionally even imploding.  
I’m not trying to suggest that the evening was some sort of Ugly Duckling transformation story. I am definitely not Cinderella. 
But it was clear that others, as well as me, were surprised to see me there, doing that.  I was dressed in some black lace concoction that Neve had assured me was ‘a little bit sexy, but definitely not slutty’, opaque tights and a pair of ballet flats.  It had been a nightmare trying to find something to wear that looked dressy enough, covered enough and didn’t look like it should be worn by my mum.  Neve had managed to cajole my hair into a side sweep of loose waves and hide the couple of spots that had appeared, as if on cue, that morning. I knew I didn’t look like most of the other girls, especially those with their fake tans, fake hair and fake nails, but I was OK with that.
Usually I was happy with the office-wear rules that made up the dress code for Sixth Form: black trousers, a plain tee shirt and a cardigan had become my own unofficial uniform.  So maybe people were surprised to see me in a dress.  Or maybe it was because Rob was dancing with me.  
That was more likely the cause. 
About half an hour earlier, Rob Meadows had come over to our table, drink in hand, sat down and started chatting like we were long-time friends.  He joked about some of the teachers, and recalled some of the funny moments from when we had lessons together in main school.  As the conversation continued, he had moved his chair closer to mine, as though he was struggling to hear what I was saying.  At one point, when he touched my arm to point out the drunken antics of one of the other rugby team players, I finally got the message.
Rob was flirting with me.  
When he asked me to dance, I looked across at Neve, who was bravely trying not to look like a fifth wheel.  I knew she was as surprised as me at what was happening; this had not even been considered in the endless discussions we had had about the evening before tonight.  She shrugged her shoulders and I got up to follow Rob to the area where a few couples were in varying stages of becoming physically acquainted with each other.  My heart was pounding.  I had never danced with anyone other than Neve, and never like this!  I decided that I just had to follow his lead; clearly this wasn’t going to be his first time. 
As we moved together in time with the music, I felt the tautness of Rob’s waist beneath my hands.  I had worried about what to do with my hands but he had gently taken them and placed them on his hips before gathering his own around my neck, pulling me close.  His thumb was softly rubbing my nape, the tiny movement sending shivers up and down my spine.  My breath became shallower with each tingle.  
Was this what all the fuss was about?  If so, I finally got it.  
One sway brought us closer together and I was sure that I could feel him pressing into my hip.  I’d never been that close to a boy before, well, not in that way, and I didn’t have the foggiest about what to do.  I was sure that most of the girls would be able to laugh it off with some innuendo-laden joke, some might even have moved in closer.  But I wasn’t one of those girls and the last thing I wanted was to mess up what could

Just Reviewed - The Edge of Always (The Edge of Never #2) by J.A. Redmerski - Giveaway, Excerpt and Review - 5 Stars

To celebrate the November 5th release of J.A. Redmerski's THE EDGE OF ALWAYS, the powerful sequel to the bestselling novel THE EDGE OF NEVER, the author is giving away five print copies of the series! JRed just released a never-before-released excerpt from THE EDGE OF ALWAYS!  Check out my review, excerpt and author giveaway. I LOVE this book series...it's an absolute must read.



Summary:
When everything falls apart, love remains . . .

THE EDGE OF ALWAYS

Camryn Bennett has never been happier. Five months after meeting on a Greyhound bus, she and her soul mate Andrew Parrish are engaged-and a wedding isn't the only special event in their future. Nervous but excited, Camryn can't wait to begin the rest of her life with Andrew, a man she knows in her heart will love her always. They have so much to look forward to-until tragedy blindsides them.

Andrew doesn't understand how this could happen to them. He's trying to move on, and thought Camryn was doing the same. But when Andrew discovers Camryn is secretly harboring a mountain of pain and attempting to numb it in damaging ways, there is nothing he won't do to bring her back to life. Determined to prove that their love can survive anything, Andrew decides to take Camryn on a new journey filled with hope and passion. If only he can convince her to come along for the ride...

REVIEW:
The Edge of Always (The Edge of Never, #2)The Edge of Always by J.A. Redmerski
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by Netgalley and Hachette Book Group, Grand Central Publishing Forever in exchange for an honest review.  No cliff hanger. Book one should be read first. Spoiler-free review.  Release date – November 5th.  Five stars.

The Edge of Always is the stunning conclusion of J.A. Redmerski’s The Edge of Never series. Camryn and Andrew are back on the road living their dream in book two.  Their spontaneous adventure continues with a few painful pit stops and detours to tackle some real issues with drugs, dependency and health.  Camryn and Andrew’s hearts were like passports…stamped with so many emotions. They visited love, lust, pleasure, pain and depression to name a few.

TEOA unravels from both Camryn and Andrew's POV.  It was so nice getting into Andrew's head and I think I might love him a little more in book two!  There were times that I wanted to hug and smack the heck out of Camryn (but mostly hug).  The Edge of Never (Book #1) is still my favorite…but book two was certainly worth the wait.  JRed did not disappoint -- if anything she exceeding my expectations with how this story continued.  The Edge of Always had me on the edge of my seat up until the very last page. I was swept away in Camryn and Andrew’s emotional road map and loved the way this story played out.

I can only wish a spin off with a new character that came into the picture. Maybe we will be lucky and get “The Edge of Forever”? This book is an absolute must read. Thanks for the Kindle Crack J.A. Redmerski.

THE EDGE OF ALWAYS Excerpt:
“Get up, birthday girl,” Andrew announces from somewhere near the foot of the bed. I hear him slap the tabletop by the window with the palm of his hand repeatedly.

I roll over onto my side, putting my back toward the bright sun and then burrow underneath the sheets. A gust of cold air hits me when Andrew snatches the sheets off me.

“Oh come on!” I moan, drawing my knees toward my chest and pulling the

EXCERPT:
“Your hair must be worse than mine,” she giggles, pulling her lips from mine and tugging the thick, messy locks hanging over my shoulders.
I grin. “Yeah.”
“Any reason you keep it long?” she asks, using her fingers to untangle it.
I shrug. “Just always been that way, so I figure it’s just easier to leave it there.”
She continues tugging and pulling, until her fingers are gliding smoothly through it.
“I like it,” she murmurs. “I’d like it even more if I could brush it.”
I snort. “Ain’t gonna happen little darlin’.”
She pouts, and I smirk, flicking her lip. “Don’t pout at me.”
“It’s not un-manly to let a girl brush your hair.”
“No,” I grin. “It’s just outright girly.”
“It’s not!”
“Is.”
She gives me a lazy half smile, and then tugs at my hair again, until our lips are touching. Her stomach grumbles against mine.
“Hungry?” I chuckle.
She nods, stretching and shifting. “Yeah, but I think I need to shower more.”
“You shower, I’ll get food.”
She nods, grinning. “It sounds like a plan.”
I crawl out of her bed, and sit on the side, ready to pull on my jeans when her hand reaches around, and her fingers curl around my soft c**k. It instantly jerks to life, swelling beneath her grips.

Book Title: Surrendering (A Surrender Novel)
Author: Ahren Sanders
Genre:  New Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date:  November 2013
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

Synopsis: 
Ravenel Hayes is a perfect daughter, a loving sister, a loyal friend, and an excellent student. Returning home to complete her MBA and be closer to her family, she has her future all mapped out. That is until her path leads her straight into Declan Collins. The dark haired, tattooed singer with a sinful body is a distraction, one that’s way out of her league. He wasn’t part of her plan. But now that he’s literally knocking on her door, how can she avoid him?

Declan Collins lives life to the edge. His only emotional attachments are to his family and his band. He’s your typical bad-boy, lead singer who lives with no regrets. “Hook-up and head-out” is his motto. His ultimate goal is to take his band all the way to the top, or so it was. When he runs into Raven, she stirs up emotions in him that he had never thought possible. From their very first meeting, there’s no denying the chemistry between them. He’s not a relationship guy, but can she change his playboy ways? 
Jealousy, anger, stalkers, and fame and fortune threaten to tear these two apart. Will surrendering to their love get them through the challenges that await them? Or will it tear them apart?

*Due to graphic language and explicit sexual situations, this book is recommended for readers 18+.

Excerpt:
I walk between Blake and Nate and they start whistling. Then Finn and the others join in. Declan freezes mid-sip and his eyes bulge. I ignore everyone while I roll my eyes and laugh. 

“Declan, man you must be crazy to let your girl outta the house in that get up. You’ll have to beat the guys away. If she were mine, I wouldn’t even let her go to the bathroom alone.”

I can’t help myself; I laugh at the thought of having an escort to the bathroom. “Shut up, Tripp. You’ve been to tons of concerts with me. You’ve never had to beat anyone away.”

“Baby Girl, we never had to beat them away because we shielded you. Besides, no one was going to mess with a guy like Finn standing as bodyguard. You have a guy now so we’re handing the job off to him.”

This is not going well. Declan hasn’t said anything yet,

Just Reviewed - Trials (Rock Bottom #2) by Sarah Biermann

Trials (Rock Bottom #2) by Sarah Biermann is such a kick ass sequel. I devoured this book in one sitting.  Nothing like a drama filled love triangle of sex, drugs, rock and roll and murder.  Great rock star/celeb series.  Check out my spoiler free review and excerpt.

Kindle Crack Book Reviews - Trials (Rock Bottom #2)
Trials (Rock Bottom, #2)Trials by Sarah Biermann
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.  No cliff hanger. Tracks (Rock Bottom #1) should be read first to fully enjoy this book. Spoiler-free review.  4.5 rock star sized stars!

Trials (Rock Bottom #2) by Sarah Biermann picks up a few years after Dylan and Jeremy hit the rocks. Jeremy completely cut himself off from her and is never heard from again. Even though Dylan is devastated from losing Jeremy, she still manages to remain at the top of her class at law school. Dylan attempts to move on from her emotional breakdown and ends up living with Scott.  She is somewhat happy with her life…but thinks about what she had with Jeremy. He is still very much a part of her head and heart.  News articles and TV stories would occasionally pop up about Jeremy which she did her best to avoid...until the day he makes headline news.  He is accused of a drug induced murder/rape of an underage girl.  While working as an intern at the DA’s office she comes face to face with Jeremy and life will never be the same.

I was captivated from the first page to the last.  This book was total Kindle Crack and I devoured this book in one sitting! Jeremy, Dylan and Scott's gut wrenching love triangle unraveled at a perfect pace with a perfect amount of emotion and steam.  I will say there were times I wanted to reach into my Kindle and bitch slap Dylan for being so shitty to Scott. This story got under my skin.    I really like Sarah’s writing style and think book two is my favorite. Jeremy, Scott and Dylan ended up with the HEA they needed to have.  Sarah wrapped up this rock and roll drama pretty nicely.  I look forward to reading what she is working on next.

Excerpt:
Overcome with emotion, I walk around him, keeping my arms around his waist. I stop when I’m standing in front of him. I look up at him, his hands covering his face, until he drops them to his side. He looks down at me, his eyes deliciously exposed. I understand that this moment is another trial for me- one I’m about to fail.
I stand on my toes and kiss him passionately. I release his waist and place my hands in his hair. He tastes better than I could ever have remembered and when we connect, my entire body tingles. It’s like he is breathing life back into me.
He’s still for a moment, shocked into rigidness. As my mouth begins to move against his, he starts to move his lips in synchronization. He wraps his arms delicately around me, but we’ve been apart too long for gentle. I push my mouth harder into his and wrap my fingers tighter in his hair.
His breathing increases and his mouth moves faster with mine. He grabs the back of my shirt roughly, flipping me around and slamming me back against the wall. I moan and wrap my legs around him. He drops his hands to hold me under my ass.
“Damn you, Dylan,” he says, growling the words in between kisses. “Damn you for making me love you so much. I need you. I need you now. I’ve never needed anything more in my life than I need you right now.” His

Excerpt - 
“I’m going to the ladies’ room,” Simone announces. As she goes to stand, her hand gently squeezes my erection under the table. She leans in and whispers, “Care to join me?”

I give her a subtle nod and watch her ass shimmy towards the restrooms. I adjust myself under the table and stand.

“I’m going to check out the restrooms too.”

“Yeah, I bet you are!” Brad laughs at the obvious fact that I’m about to go get laid.

“You know. I really hoped you two would do more than just fuck. I should have known better.” Sophie shakes her head in mock disgust.

BLURB:
Beat of the Heart (Runaway Train #2)
by Katie Ashley  
After years of bad relationships and a cheating ex-fiancĂ©, twenty-eight-year-old Mia Martinelli prefers healing her patients’ hearts on the Cardiac Care floor rather than risking having her heart broken again. But that all comes to a screeching halt when caring for the head roadie for Runaway Train puts her into the orbit of drummer and Latin Lover, AJ Resendiz. After a scorching weekend of steamy passion, Mia’s intention of getting out with her heart unscathed is challenged by the stud with the wicked sense of humor, especially when he wants to continue seeing her. But when the harsh reality of AJ’s hoard of female admirers sends her insecurities into overdrive, Mia bails, leaving him handcuffed to his bathroom shower. 

AJ never imagined that after two weeks of the best sex and female companionship he’d ever experienced, he would need rescued by his band mates from his shower prison. Although he tries to forget the sensual brunette whose curves made his mouth water, AJ can’t get her out of his mind…or his heart. Months later when he finally seeks Mia for answers as to why she left, nothing could prepare him for their life-altering reunion. 

Can AJ prove to Mia that regardless of the women after his body, his heart belongs only to her?

MY REVIEW:
Beat of the Heart (Runaway Train, #2)Beat of the Heart by Katie Ashley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review.  No cliff hanger. I recommend reading Music of the Heart (Runaway Train #1) first…just for background (and it’s a great book). Spoiler-free review. 4.0 stars!

A heart attack brings them together…and a broken heart might tear them apart.

Beat of the Heart is all about AJ, the sexy Latin drummer from Runway Train.  He meets Mia while visiting a roadie in the hospital. Mia is a sweet and sassy cardiac nurse that he is instantly smitten with.  Mia has had her share of heart break and not ready to date…let alone date a rock star.  AJ is sweet as he is relentless in his pursuit of getting Mia to go out with him. Mia is totally insecure about her curvy body and emotionally burned out cheating and abusive men.  AJ finally wins her over and things are looking good and getting steamy.  Mia starts to question if AJ can keep his drum stick in his pants after an ex-girlfriend shows up.  That’s when things get complicated.  In the beat of a heart everything changes. Can the nurse fix her own broken heart?  Will Mia end up giving AJ a heart attack after learning Mia’s secrets?

I really enjoyed Katie Ashley’s Beat of The Heart. The characters in this book are really likeable.  I loved Mia’s best friend Dee.  Katie cranked up the heat in BOTH and I liked the steam factor/chemistry between AJ and Mia. Jake and Abby fans will be happy to know that they are a large part of this story. This is a great series that I would totally recommend and I am looking forward to seeing where it goes next.

Synopsis
Danny and Liv are back...

Danny loves Liv. He knows he loves her more than she loves him because she ran without a word when she saw their future mapped out before her. He knows he will never love anyone like he loved her and this time he doesn’t think he can move on.

Liv loves Danny. She knows she loves him more than he loves her because he broke her heart in the worst possible way, right when things were falling into place. She knows she will never love anyone like she loves him and this time she doesn’t think she can move on.

They needed a second chance because they just weren’t ready for their first, but when events changed everything between them, they discovered they were just human after all. Now Liv and Danny have to find a way to survive being hurt by each other. 

They doubted, they underestimated and they did believe the worst, but only because they were too young the first time and too vulnerable the second time. But now they have changed and if they are not the same, surely things can only turn out differently?

My Review:
A Changed LifeA Changed Life by Mary A. Wasowski
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review.  Spoiler-free review. HEA which makes me happy :).

Seventeen year old Nicolette’s life is turned upside down when her parents decide to move from Chicago to Californian.  She has to start all over again her senior year of high school. New friends, school and a changed life.  I want to remain spoiler free so will top line - Nicolette attends her first Hollywood party meets two guys - Michael and Simon.  Michael is a “bad boy” dbag. She manages to ditch him and meets and instantly falls for Simon (and so will you). Michael is a complete stalker and psycho.  The unthinkable happens and Nicolette’s life will forever be changed in a horrible way.
This story has a few good emotional twists and turns making it a page turner. Mary A. Wasowski takes her time crafting her characters and the plot of ACL. I have say Simon is going on my high school book boyfriend list : ) .  If you are in the mood for a solid emotional read than A Changed Life by Mary A. Wasowski is the book for you!  I will definitely check out more of Mary’s books in the future. Four stars.

Excerpt:
Nicolette, I want you to be my girlfriend. I care about you, and I think you care about me too. Am I wrong?” My head is spinning now, Simon is here telling me he wants me and only me. I am such an idiot! If I would have just talked to him today, all my misery that I put myself through could have been avoided.
“No Simon, you’re not wrong. I would love to be your girlfriend.” He wraps his arms around me and holds me tightly to his chest. He smells amazing with the mix of his body wash and cologne. I was still on Simon’s lap as he kept me close to him. “I’m sorry about my dad last night and all of the questions.”
“It’s no big deal. I should have called you when I got home, if I had, maybe today could have been avoided.”
“Simon...sorry it’s my phone, it could be my mom checking in. I look at the number, and it’s Michael calling me. Not wanting Simon to see it, I quickly
