Blog Tour Review & Giveaway for Beautiful Addictions by Season Vining

Check out my review and author giveaway for Beautiful Addictions by Season Vining.  

Josie Banks is a girl without a past. After being found unconscious with no memory, she was shuffled in
and out of foster homes where she suffered years of abuse. An experience that left her broken, damaged,
and clinging to drugs and meaningless hook-ups to numb her pain.
When Josie disappeared years ago, she took a piece of Tristan with her. She’s the girl he thought he lost
forever—the one he’s never been able to forget. Now a twist of fate has brought them back together, and
he never wants to let her out of his inked arms again. But Tristan is haunted by a dark past of his own.
On the run from ruthless criminals that shattered Josie’s world years ago, reentering her life puts them
both in danger. As Josie and Tristan’s lives become tangled once again, they find themselves unwilling and unable to escape the relentless pull that draws them together. But will the past leave their love in ruins—or bind them together for a lifetime?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.25 - 4.50 stars.

ARC kindly provided in exchange for a fair and honest review. Spoiler free review.  Stand alone and  HEA.

I am not going to regurgitate the synopsis...but I will top-line my thoughts on Beautiful Addictions.   Season Vining hit the ground running with her first book. She is wickedly talented.  The way in which she described certain everyday things was quite poetic and found myself re reading lines -- just for the beauty of it.  BA is told from multiple POV’s and was a bit confusing and challenging to get into in the beginning.  I think once the back story unraveled I got really into it.  BA is filled with some crazy interconnected elements amongst the different characters.  Just when I thought I might have something figured out…I didn’t…and I liked that.  This wasn’t a cookie cutter type of second chance romance and exceeded my expectations. Great blend of romance, suspense, drama, twists and turns that kept my mind racing in the second half of this book.

This review appears on,, Goodreads, Amazon and Twitter.

Season Vining is the author of Beautiful Addictions, a New Adult Romantic Suspense novel from St.

Cover Reveal - Break by Amanda Stone

Check out the cover and synopsis for Break by Amanda Stone.  I love MMA fighter books and I have a feeling this is going to be a good one.

Break by USA Today Bestselling author Amanda Stone
A New Adult novel
Release Spring 2014
Cover Design by Sarah Hansen - Okay Creations

There are paths we take in life that lead us to where we are supposed to be—where we are meant to be all along. I didn’t know that my journey, which had been filled with so much pain and so much all-consuming rage, would lead me to her.
She is my salvation. My undoing. My reason for breaking…
Storm Messer has just graduated college. But instead of spending the summer traveling, like she had intended, she finds herself dumped by her boyfriend and working for her parents at their family’s prestigious restaurant.
Ryker Noakes had every intention of going away to college until he lost the one person who kept him grounded. Now five years later he finds himself spending his days working as a mechanic, and his nights working off his aggression over things he cannot change as an underground MMA fighter. Neither could have known that a chance meeting would spark up a friendship that would lead to an undeniable romance. But when they find out their pasts collide, it threatens to destroy any future they may have together.
Breaking isn’t always a bad thing. — As long as you have the right person to put you back together.

About Amanda:
Amanda Stone is the author of the USA Today Bestselling book, Breathe into Me. She was born and raised in the foothills of eastern Kentucky. She loves being from, and living in, this beautiful state so much that she decided to move to a small little town that is—no pun intended—called, Lovely.
Amanda is currently living out her, happily ever after, with her reformed bad boy hubby, their two wild little kidlets, and a house full of critters. (Technically, its two dogs and a cat, but if it was up to her husband, those numbers would be drastically larger.)

Excerpt/ Chapter Two
Jack Henry McLachlan

I once thought I didn’t want a wife and kids but it was because I hadn’t met the 
right person. Everything is different now—I’m married to the perfect woman and I 
can’t wait until she becomes the mother of my children.
I’m glad L asked me why I was anxious to begin our family. I’m not sure I 
would’ve ever been brave enough to volunteer that information. Fear. It’s not 
something a man likes to admit but that’s the beauty of my relationship with L. I 
can tell her anything.

She turns in my arms and kisses me between words. “You. Are. Amazing.”

“I’m glad you think so since it seems you’re stuck with me for the rest of our 

“Happily stuck by choice. There’s a difference.”

I watch the sun dance on her face as the palm trees above move in the breeze. 

A shorter strand of hair at her temple has escaped her grasp and I tuck it behind 
her ear. “Are you truly happy?”

“It isn’t possible for me to be
