Book Synopsis:
I wish I could tell you that I was stolen.

Kidnapped off the street in some third-world country, sold against my will, while a desperate family back home waited and prayed and talked about me on the news.

I wish I could tell you that, because then you might understand.

What really happened? I walked to my fate with my eyes wide open. But before you say I deserved whatever happened to me, you should know. I was desperate. I was alone. I was afraid for my life. You would have done the same thing.

I thought things couldn’t possibly get any worse.

But then, I woke up in darkness, unable to move. There was only one thing I was sure of: I wasn’t alone anymore.

And then I heard HIS voice…

Titanium: How I Wrote Autumn in "Pieces of Autumn"
Autumn Laramie is stronger than you think.
Dark romance heroines are difficult to write. Although Autumn spoke to me loud 
and clear when I started writing her story, I knew it would be a challenge to 
convey her the right away. She goes through a lot. She’s frequently in peril, and 
frequently afraid. But she never buckles. She bends, but she doesn’t break. 
I often think of a scene in the second season of American Horror Story, when 
someone dubs the heroine as “one tough cookie.” She responds:

“I’m tough, but I’m no cookie.”

I’ve thought about getting that as a tattoo. It stuck in the back of my mind as I 
wrote Autumn, especially because of the unique nature of her strength. She is 
not necessarily brutal and violent, although she has her moments. Mostly, her 
strength is in perception. Compassion. Determination.

The hero, Tate, is deeply damaged. He is walled off, and lashes out violently 
from his pain. He needs someone who can see through all of that, and 
understand him - something that he doesn’t feel he deserves. 

He needs forgiveness.

Who can forgive a man who’s done the unthinkable? 

A dark romance heroine, far from being a damsel in distress, must be stronger 
than the hero. She must be capable of radical forgiveness. Radical acceptance. 
While the hero usually holds grudges, and cannot let go of his past, she must.
Although she is the “victim,” Autumn still has a moment when she understands 
that Tate has been a victim too:

And what was the point in ever letting someone else matter to me again? It could 
only end in tears.

Rogue by Katy Evans is LIVE ★★RELEASE DAY REVIEW & GIVEAWAY★★

Rogue is the fourth story in the new adult series that began with the New York Times bestseller Real, featuring Brooke's best friend, Melanie, and the rogue she can't resist.  This book is HOT!!!!  

**WARNING** This book should come with a warning label that your e-reader and your panties might combust while reading this book...just sayin.  

Check out my 5-star review and giveaway.  Kindle Crack Book Reviews is giving away one eBook copy via Amazon.  See link below or visit http://www.facebook.com/kindlecrack to enter.


Title:  Rogue (Real series book #4)
Author:  Katy Evans
 Publication Date: July 29, 2014

ROGUE

Greyson King…
My boyfriend. My friend. My protector. He’s the reason I wake up every morning with a smile on my face, and the reason I fall asleep limp, worn out, and aching for his warm arms around me. When we make love, he says my name like it means something. Like I mean something.
He
Lied.
His name is Greyson King, but his alias is Zero.
There’s zero trace of him, he has zero past, and now I know that with him, I will have zero future.
He may leave no trace of him anywhere, but his imprint is in me, in my very soul—and I hate that a mere look at him commands the beat of my heart. The temperature of my body.
I’ve looked for love my entire life. I’ve waited for the butterflies, the rainbows…
Instead I’m in a free fall of emotions and there’s no one to catch me but the one man I should be running away from. The one man I thought was my prince charming.
Except this prince charming went rogue.
Greyson will stop at nothing to make me be with him. He'll let no one stand in our way, will allow no one to threaten me, and maybe this is what scares me most of all...

What will my rogue do to keep me?

Spoiler-free review

Definition of Zero
ze•ro
ˈzi(ə)rō,ˈzēˌrō

number
1. no quantity or number; naught; the figure 0.
"figures from zero to nine"
synonyms: nothing, nothing at all, nil, none, naught/nought;
informalzilch, nix, zip,nada, diddly-squat
"I rated my chances at zero"

verb
1. adjust (an instrument) to zero.
"zero the counter when the tape has rewound"
2. set the sights of (a gun) for firing.

Grayson is a zero.
-He didn't exist.
-He could never be identified.
-He never wanted to leave an imprint on her heart...how could he? She was good and he was just a zero.

Melanie is beautiful, full of life and searching for her Prince Charming. Little did she know a bet she made would change her life forever. Could the man she was falling for really exist? He is untraceable. Grayson is a zero and a rogue.

Katy Evans knows how to burn up a page with combustible character chemistry and sexually charged story lines. Katy’s deliciously sexy writing style makes everything about this book feel so real.  Don’t expect Grayson to be Remy nor Brooke to be like Melanie….but you can count on this book rocking your world.

This book should come with a warning label that your e-reader and your panties might combust while reading this book. I have to say there were a few times I wanted to smack Melanie. I knew she was desperate to find “the one”....but gahhh.  Grayson…oh Grayson.  I loved him...it just took me a little bit to get over his affinity for his black gloves. Grayson reminded me a little bit of Ray Donovan (Showtime show/character played by actor Liev Schreiber).  He is dangerous, banged up and just all kinds of crazy sexy. Go one click this one.  You will not be disappointed. Katy never disappoints…

A Fighter’s Desire by L.P. Dover is LIVE and on SALE for .99


Title: A Fighter’s Desire
Author: L.P. Dover
RELEASE: July 28, 2014

SYNOPSIS:

Two is always better than one.

Knowing a fighter’s desires and needs are one thing, but actually experiencing them is another. A Fighter’s Desire gives you not one, but two stories full of hardcore passion, angst, and action that’ll leave you breathless and aching for more.

Part One: Ryley and Camden Jameson, well-known MMA fighters and identical twins, were just as aggressive and passionate in the bed as they were in the ring. They loved a good fight, and that’s exactly what they got when they met Ashleigh Warren. The brothers had a habit of sharing things—including women—and she happened to be the only one they truly craved. However, the problem was getting her to agree to their proposition. It was one she couldn’t refuse, but she
knew it wouldn’t be easy to win. Nonetheless, she sure as hell was going to enjoy it.

Part Two: Fighting temptation isn’t easy when you’re constantly around the one person you’ve desired more than any other. Gabriella Reynolds was warned by her brother, MMA Heavyweight Champion Matt Reynolds, to stay away from his friends; they only wanted one thing, and in the
end they’d break her heart. She heard it, but the desire to have the one man she couldn’t led herdown the forbidden path to pursue him; he also happens to be one of her brother’s best friends.

Tyler Rushing can’t deny his attraction to her, and he’s afraid she’ll want more than what he can give her. When he finds out that’s not the case ... everything changes. They have no choice but to keep their time a secret, and it’s a secret that’ll stay with them forever.

About the author
Soraya Naomi resides in Europe with her entrepreneur fiancé. She attended university in The Netherlands. Although she reads many genres, she favors intense, dark, seductive, and provocative novels where the male character loves fiercely without remorse or boundaries. She has a passionate obsession for the written word and indulges in chocolate pastries much too often.
There are books full of great writing that don't have very good stories. Read sometimes for the story... don't be like the book-snobs who won't do that.
Read sometimes for the words--the language. Don't be like the play-it-safers who won't do that. But when you find a book that has both a good story and good words, treasure that book.
― Stephen King

✰★✰Rhett in Love by J. S. Cooper Cover Reveal✰★✰

Rhett in Love is a new standalone book coming by New York Times Bestselling author J. S. Cooper. Rhett in Love is the sequel to the bestselling book, Rhett, but can be read without having read the first book in the series.   Check it out below.

Title: Rhett In Love
Author: J.S. Cooper
Release date: September 23rd, 2014

Synopsis:
Rhett Madison and Clementine O’Hara were best friends for years before they decided to give dating a shot. Everyone around them thought they were perfect for each other, but neither one of them realized just how much their relationship would change once they got together.

They’d only been dating for a couple of months when they decided to move across the country and live together. Neither one of them were prepared for all the trials and tribulations they would face as a new couple living in sin, as Clementine’s Nanna called it.


Rhett’s still acting like he’s a bachelor and Clementine’s not sure if going from friends to lovers was the best decision they ever made. So they decide to enroll in a relationship course to see if they are meant to be together. Only it seems like Rhett’s more interested in the passionate side of their relationship, as opposed to the deeper more emotional side.


Hilarity and chaos ensues when Tomas and Jake come to visit and Rhett and Clementine are both faced with questions that could change their relationship status once again. Neither one knows what’s going to happen, but no-one ever said that the pathway from friends to lovers was going to be an easy one.


Rhett in Love will be released on September 23rd, 2014. You can add the book on Goodreads here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22694351-rhett-in-love.

Who runs over a bird? They have wings! They fly! Why didn’t you fly, you stupid

“Hails? You okay? That wasn’t your fault, you know. That was just...just crazy weird. I 

don’t know what it was, but it definitely was not your fault. You’re okay, right?”

It’s quiet for a couple minutes and then she says quietly, “I have a dark aura.”

Cover Reveal & Giveaway - Hard Knox by Nicole Williams


I am so excited about this new series of stand-alone novels by Nicole Williams!  Enter to win a paperback copy of Hard Knox below.


The Outsider Chronicles, #1
Author: Nicole Williams
New Adult/Adult Contemporary
Releasing August 12, 2014
New Adult/Adult Contemporary
Cover designed by Okay Creations

Knox Jagger. The name inspires resent in every male at Sinclair University, want 
in every female, and contempt in Charlie Chase. Charlie can be summed up in three words: independent, independent, and independent. To Charlie, Knox epitomizes everything that’s wrong with college males: prolific one-night stands, drunken senseless fights, and a body that hints at prioritizing gym time over study time.

As an up-and-coming writer for Sinclair University’s newspaper, Charlie’s tasked 
with getting to the bottom of who’s been dropping little white pills into girls’ 
drinks at parties. In an ocean of All-American boys sporting polo shirts and 
innocent smiles, Knox is the obvious suspect. As evidence piles up against the bad boy of Sinclair, Charlie becomes more and more certain it isn’t Knox. But when her drink is dosed at a party and she wakes up on Knox’s couch the next morning, 

Charlie’s left with more questions than answers when it comes to Knox Jagger.
How can Charlie ever hope to uncover the truth behind a guy so closed off he’s 
become . . .

Hard Knox.

Title: Torrent (Condemned #1)
Author: Gemma James 
Publication date: July 22nd 2014 
Genres: Erotica, Romance

Synopsis

She sent an innocent man to prison. Now, eight years later, he's returning the favor... 

I’ve been obsessed with Rafe Mason since I was thirteen. The twisted part of this story is that I still want him, even now.

Now that he's holding me captive on an island.

Rafe has his reasons for doing what he's doing, and if I'm honest, I can't blame him. I’m the girl who sent him to prison for a heinous crime he didn't commit.

But now he's free and the tables have turned...now he's the one driven by obsession.

TORRENT is a new adult dark romance with disturbing themes and explicit content, including sexual scenes and violence that may offend some. Intended for mature audiences. Part one of the CONDEMNED series. This is not a stand-alone read.

Are you in the mood for a dark and dysfunctional romance?  If you are, then you must check out Torrent by Gemma James.

Rafe is hell-bent on getting revenge against the woman who wrongly accused him of rape, which landed him in prison. Alex is raped and beaten, and then accuses the man she was in love with.  Zach, her psychotic step-brother, will kill anyone who tries to get in the way of his relationship with his sister Alex.  All three are caught in a torrent of secrets, lies and twisted dysfunction.

Torrent is raw, gritty and isn’t a hearts and flowers romance.  I hope Rafe and Alex get their HEA. These two whackadoos are a match made in heaven.  Torrent ended with a doozy of a cliffhanger.  Don’t let the cliffhanger factor scare you away…you will need some recovery time from reading book one.   I cannot wait for book two.  One-click this one.

10 Random Facts About Torrent

1. I began writing Torrent last summer. Back then it was a barebones beginning about a young, reckless girl and her dead brother's best friend who couldn't fight his darkness any longer. The island has been in the story all along.

2. I really have Skye Warren to thank for how Torrent turned out. Last year around Christmas time, she called for submissions for a short story anthology about criminals. Well, I had an idea…and that idea was too good to confine to a short story. I decided to combine my earlier efforts with the premise of a girl sending a man to prison for a crime he didn't commit, and him coming back for what he felt he deserved. 

3.  Once I had the island in mind (small, privately own, with a single cabin on it), I turned to Google to find out if I could find any real islands of a similar nature to use as a reference. There just happens to be one about three hours from where I live, situated on the Oregon side of the Columbia River. It even has a cabin on it. I've driven there twice and have seen it from the highway. I call it "my island." The setting in the novel, though based on real places, is purely fictional, with the exception of the Columbia River and Portland, Oregon.

4. I rewrote the beginning about three, maybe four times.

5. Zach and Alex were originally full-blooded siblings. I gave into censoring myself out of fear of being banned from retailers, even though I had no intention at first of writing sexual scenes between the two. Once I changed their relation to step-siblings, the brief taboo scene in the beginning formed, and in my opinion, strengthened the setup of the novel. It also opened wicked avenues for book two. ;)

6. I didn't immediately know why Alex sent Rafe to prison. She was a stubborn character who kept me in the dark for a while!

7. Torrent is the first book in which I wrote from the hero's POV. It was interesting getting inside Rafe's head.

8. One of the twists about Rafe's past (something he learns after he's out of prison) basically wrote itself into the story part way through. Same with Jax, Rafe's buddy. These characters and subplots just popped in of their own accord!

9. If you're looking for an easy read with hearts, flowers, and mainstream topics—this isn't the book for you. This story will make you squirm, possibly make you sick at times, and push you into the darkest corners of your mind. But I'm a romantic at heart and believe in happy endings. Getting there is hell though. 

10. I do not feel guilty about the cliffhanger ending. Have you watched any TV season finales lately? AHHHHHHHH! I understand the frustration, and I'm evil enough to rub my hands together in glee. Don't lynch me. I'm working on the second book. :D

BLURB

-LUCY-
There is a love so fierce it cannot be measured. 
A heart so strong it will never slow. 
There is a promise so sure it can never lie.
He promised me that love forever.
Even when it wasn't enough.

-CAMERON-
Forever. Everlasting. Eternal.
There is no measure of time. 
No sounds of the ticking of a clock. 
Just the rising and falling of the sun.
And our own sense of forever. 

But our forever isn't always.

Spoiler-Free review

I decided I won a book lottery. It’s that feeling that when you pick up a book by one of your all-time favorite authors and pray it's going to be a winner. More Than Forever is a winner…and I hit the book jackpot.

How is it possible that this series keeps getting better and better? I have found that the majorly of multi-book series just feel drawn out, or written about secondary characters that were just meh. Then there is the More series. This series is literally “unputabledownable.” The only other time I felt so emotional about characters in a book was from reading Colleen Hoover's books.

I'm not going to get into this book's plot...you need to read it for yourself. I refuse to spoil your emotional journey. I will tell you that if you are a More series/JMac fan you already know that this book is mandatory reading. There were times while I was reading this book I wondered how the hell Lucy managed to cry so much.  Then I started to wonder about myself. Ugh...hello? Look at the tear stains on your face that resemble a melted ice luge. This book and this writer just take my breath away. That is all.

EXCERPT 
Mom says that there’s absolutely no pain worse than labor. For sixteen hours, so she says, she went through absolute hell. She jokes that sometimes she wonders if it was worth it. I call bullshit. I say that nothing, absolutely nothing, can feel worse than being hit in the junk with a baseball bat. Lincoln’s eyes are huge as he grimaces. “I’m so sorry, Cam.”
I’m folded over myself, too preoccupied with the ache below my stomach. Sometimes, there’s a delay with the pain. But not this time. This time it was instant. I try to speak, but nothing comes out. He looks like he wants to cry and I want to assure him that it’s all good—but I can’t. Liam, Lincoln’s twin brother, is laughing. The little punk. I’ll be sure to make him do extra shit next practice. “Cam, are you okay?”
I try to straighten, but it just makes the pain worse. “Yeah, bud. I just gotta let it settle.”

“I swear I didn’t see you behind me.” There’s panic clear in his voice and for a second I want to tell myself to suck it up and quit being a little bitch, but I can’t do that either. The pain’s too overwhelming. Liam’s still laughing his ass off. My eyes narrow at him and Lincoln must notice, because he turns to his brother and pushes him hard enough that he falls to the ground. That makes Liam stop. He gets up and dusts the dirt of his uniform. “We should go, Linc, we’re the last ones here.”
Lincoln looks around. So do I. Liam’s right, everyone’s gone.
“I’m just gonna help Cam pack up,” Lincoln replies, picking up the team equipment bag and chucking in the helmets and bats sitting by my feet. He looks up at me again, and I can see how sorry he really is.
Standing to full height, I do my best to ignore the pain. “It’s okay, Linc. Seriously, it’s passed now.” It hasn’t, but he doesn’t need to know that. He finishes packing anyway and hands me the bag, it’s bigger than he is.
I take it from his hands and look around again. “Your mom or dad late to pick you up?”
“Nah,” Liam says, the laughter and amusement now gone. “Lucy’s here.”
“Lucy?”
“Our sister,” Lincoln explains.
They both turn to the bleachers and so do I. A lone girl sits at the bottom bench. Something flat, black and rectangular in her hand, kinda like a tablet, I guess. Her foot’s rocking a stroller back and forth. It strikes me as strange, because the girl looks familiar. She’s in my class, I think. She’s a freshman and she has a baby? Stuff like that doesn’t happen in our town and if it did, I’d know. Everyone would know.
“Lucy!” Liam shouts.
She doesn’t look up.
“Lucy!” Lincoln this time.
She still doesn’t look up, but her foot continues to rock the stroller.
“Luce!” Liam yells again.
Nothing.
My eyes narrow before looking down at the boys. “Is your sister…uh…hearing impaired?”

They both let out simultaneous snorts. “No,” Lincoln answers, pulling his cap further down his head and looking up at me. His eyes roll as he says, “She’s just reading.”

The More Series 

More Than This, #1

*Mikayla* 
In one night my fairytale ended. Or it may have begun. This is my story of friendship and love, heartbreak and desire, and the strength to show weakness. 

*Jake* 
One night I met a girl. A sad and broken girl, but one more beautiful than any other. She laughed through her sadness, while I loved through her heartbreak. 

*This is our story of a maybe ever after.* 

He was right. It made no difference whether it was 6 months or 6 years. 
I couldn’t undo what had been done. I couldn’t change the future. 
I couldn’t even predict it. 
It was one night. 
One night when everything changed. 
It was so much more than just the betrayal. 
It was the Tragedy. 
The Deaths. 
The Murders. 
But it was also that feeling. 
The feeling of falling.

More Than Her, #2

For every action there is an equal or opposite reaction." For every choice you make there are rewards, or there are consequences. It was my choice to walk away the first time. And my choice to chase her the second. But sometimes you don't get a choice, and all you get are the consequences.” "Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” Unless that someone is Logan Matthews. Because loving him didn't give me the strength to walk away. It didn't give me the courage to fight for him. And when it was over, all it gave me was a broken heart.

More Than Him, #3

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us." - Marianne Williamson

We live in a world of darkness and shadows,
where monsters hide and aim to ruin.
And they did.
They ruined us and turned our dreams into nightmares.
But now we're back.
And we're fighting.
Not just for us, or for each other, but for our light.
