Though known primarily for her award-winning and international bestselling erotic romances (including the Stark and Most Wanted series) that have reached as high as #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, JK has been writing full time for over a decade in a variety of genres including paranormal and contemporary romance, “chicklit” suspense, urban fantasy, and paranormal mommy lit.

JK has been praised by Publishers Weekly as an author with a “flair for dialogue and eccentric characterizations” and by RT Bookclub for having “cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swoon for them.” A five time finalist for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA award, JK took home the first RITA trophy awarded in the category of erotic romance in 2014 for her novel, Claim Me (book 2 of her Stark Trilogy). Her Demon Hunting Soccer Mom series (as Julie Kenner) is currently in development with AwesomenessTV/Awestruck.

Her books have sold over three million copies and are published in over twenty languages.

In her previous career as an attorney, JK worked as a clerk on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and practiced primarily civil, entertainment and First Amendment litigation in Los Angeles and Irvine, California, as well as in Austin, Texas. She currently lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two daughters, and two rather spastic cats.jkenner

4ish stars.

Overall and surprising enough an enjoyable read. See spoiler for why it shouldn’t have been.
I had a lot of fun with this book. It is upbeat with some angst but very entertaining.

Reece, Brent & Jenna have been best friends since childhood. Only 8 months ago things changed. Reece sees her for what she is. A beautiful woman. Not quite willing to take that step he lets it drop and she leaves the next day for LA.

Jenna has come back to Austin it didn’t quite work out in LA. She comes home to her family. And to the attraction that she left behind for one of her best friends. They both notice that it has become awkward and that something has changed but they need time to come to terms with it. Once they do they are all in. A romance from friends to lovers. There is inner monologue of push and pull because the dynamic of their relationship has changed or will change which was somewhat repetitive.

Reece is a bit of an arse but he has good character development throughout the book. Although he is an arse I still really liked him. God knows why if I’m being honest.

Jenna is a strong and sassy heroine and she stands up for what she wants but she doesn’t give Reece a chance an unfair ultimatium IMO.

With all books there is the buildup of the romance and then a spanner is thrown in the works. This spanner is slightly predictable but the grand gesture isn’t too bad.

The setup of saving The Fix on sixth street which is their local hangout is interesting and a lot can be done with the series. I like the author’s writing style it flows well and is easy to read. I don’t know if I’d read any of the other series by this author.

I’ve signed up for all twelve books ambitious, right? So, fingers crossed peeps. In a way I’m glad that I have because the secondary characters here are amazing and I’m sure that they are going to get their books.

Everywhere Unraveled (Foundlings #2) by Fiona Keane

 
 
Title: Everywhere Unraveled
Series: Foundlings #2
Author: Fiona Keane
Genre: YA Romance
Release Date: January 9, 2018
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
 
 
 
 

 


 

They told me I had to leave her.
 
They were right.
 
It doesn’t matter that she’s the first thing I think about every morning, and my last thought before I sleep.
 
It doesn’t matter that the moment my heart started beating was when I laid it at her feet.
 
As long as she’s around me, she’s in danger. I have to keep her away, keep her safe, before this storm overtakes us.
 
The truth is something she cannot know, should never know. Even if that means I’ll never see her again.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Fueled by coffee and rainy days, shelves of books consuming her home in the Pacific Northwest, and a vivid imagination, Fiona writes about love because she believes the world needs more of it. She could spend eternity lost in a story, taken into someone’s thoughts while she is left lingering there long after the pages have turned. Fiona works to meld themes in the current world and spin them into stories of longing, determination, and hope. Her characters are relatable and relevant, as they battle their own fictional version of existence.

Everywhere Unraveled is a truly fitting title for the second book in the Foundlings series by Fiona Keane. It picks up directly where Nowhere Girl the first book in the series left the readers. Nowhere Girl placed this new to my author high in my lists as THE YA debut author of 2017 for me. Ms. Keane’s writing style is intense and I am still not sure how she did it but she completely changed the tone from the first book to the second. Where the first book was a YA romance with characters struggling to find a way to each other, the second book has a totally different feeling (at least to me) .

 

Right from the first page I could feel Sophia’s confusion and Jameson’s desperation. Those two emotions were headlining many chapters of the book until the characters finally managed to crack the walls and had a chance to take actions. Interesting was that I could really feel those emotions as a reader.

 

Jameson is really the readers hero and I liked him in this book even more then I did in the first (if that is even possible) – however I was struggling with Sophia a little. AND don’t even get me started on the secondary characters. To have a final opinion on them I now need the full picture more than ever, so we will have to wait for the third book on that issue.

 

The story definitely leaves the High school YA romance genre and moves to something containing more suspense and I am really not sure where the journey is going. For now it feels that a lot of the mysteries were unraveled but I somehow do not trust the author (I am laughing while writing that) – She changed the tone of the series while maintaining the intensity of the story so who knows where the last book will lead us.

 

When I gave those 5 stars to the first book I made it clear that given the fact that it’s a trilogy my opinion on the complete series will not be fixed until the last book is released. So when it comes to Everywhere Unraveled the jury is out if it is a 4 or 5 star read. For the time being I will give it 4 stars because I need to see where the journey is going and just now I am not sure how I feel about this total change in the “tone” of the story.

 

Tap … tap … tap… <- my fingers (while I am waiting for the conclusion of this intense journey

3 ‘Well the whole book was rather convenient don’t ya think?’ Stars.

My believability muscle nearly snapped on this one.

I’m not entirely sure how to rate this book. I like the author’s style but it was all too smooth. But the author sure does know how to keep you entertained. But if you look closely and past the entertainment factor there are I’m afraid to say some things that don’t make sense
After reading the prologue which I thought was completely unnecessary. I was wondering how it was relevant to the story of Carter and Sophie. I then had an epiphany and it clicked which means I had another 26 chapters to go waiting for the shite to hit the fan. When it finally happened it, all felt so rushed. I’m surprised about the time span anyway if I’m being honest. In a blink of an eye it was all done and dusted. Yes, they met when they younger, yaddy yah. So I’m most likely being a nitpicker.

After a week they were practically living together and even if they were soulmates. A lot happens in ten years. But maybe I’m just being cynical. I was annoyed by Sophie not giving Carter a chance to explain and then she turned into a zombie had no understanding there. Carter, you had years to get your act together and you didn’t. Maybe a note could have been left as to why the circumstances led to the twist at the end. Carter is a good Hero IMO although he was a bit of an arse at the beginning. He really tried with Sophie.

What also bothered me and I swear, I swear a lot is and although I swear I’ve never used what Sophie has used cause for me personally that is what a typical bloke would say and not a lady with a dirty mouth.

What was Sophie’s constant reason for running? Why didn’t she tell her family her secret? They are Greek and tight knit and are all up in everyone’s business, so never in the ten years that they were in Cali did they go out there to find out?

All in all, an enjoyable read. A lot could have been fleshed out and developed more. As it comes across as being a bit fluffy and that could have been avoided.

P.S. I know the author is new to this genre so I’m trying to cut some slack here but book 1 was really good and I think the author kinda lost her way on this one. Please if you are alpha/beta readers than tell the author if there are things to amend. Just don’t say that is great well done cause things could have been done differently.

INSEPARABLE by Siobhan Davis

SBPR-BT-BANNER copy.jpg

Inseparable, an all-new gritty, friends-to-lovers romance from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis is available NOW!

Inseperable_kindle

Title: Inseparable

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: January 8th

A gritty, angsty, friends-to-lovers standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis.

A childhood promise. An unbreakable bond. One tragic event that shatters everything.

It all started with the boys next door…

Devin and Ayden were my best friends. We were practically joined at the hip since age two. When we were kids, we thought we were invincible, inseparable, that nothing or no one could come between us.

But we were wrong.

Everything turned to crap our senior year of high school.

Devin was turning into a clone of his deadbeat lowlife father—fighting, getting wasted, and screwing his way through every girl in town. I’d been hiding a secret crush on him for years. Afraid to tell him how I felt in case I ruined everything. So, I kept quiet and slowly watched him self-destruct with a constant ache in my heart.

Where Devin was all brooding darkness, Ayden was the shining light. Our star quarterback with the bright future whom everyone loved. But something wasn’t right. He was so guarded, and he wouldn’t let me in.

When Devin publicly shamed me, Ayden took my side, and our awesome-threesome bond was severed. The split was devastating. The heartbreak inevitable.

Ayden and I moved on with our lives, but the pain never lessened, and Devin was never far from our thoughts.

Until it all came to a head in college, and one eventful night changed everything.

Now, I’ve lost the two people who matter more to me than life itself. Nothing will ever be the same again.

A standalone new adult contemporary romance with a happy ending. Only suitable for readers aged eighteen and older due to mature content and possible triggers.

Excerpt:

He leans in, his lips brushing my cheek as his mouth makes a round trip to my ear. “What if I told you I want to be your most favorite person? The one you adore above everyone else?” His warm breath is doing strange things to my insides. My entire body is tingling, and my limbs feel like they’ve turned to rubber. He moves his hand up and down my spine, and a soothing warmth seeps bone deep. I clutch his waist harder, subconsciously moving closer until there’s barely a sliver of space between us. Every cell in my body screams for him, and I should pull back, withdraw from temptation, but I’m already under his spell.

He kisses my cheek again, and I melt into him. “What if I wanted that, Ange?” he prompts. “What would you say?”

I should refuse to answer. Throw out a lie and put a halt to this. But I can’t. “That you already are.” My heart is thumping wildly in my chest, and I can scarcely hear for the blood rushing through my ears. “That you always have been.”

He cups my face firmly, and fierce emotion blazes in his eyes. “I’ve wanted you to say that to me for a long time. I suspected, but I needed to know, because I’m a selfish, greedy bastard when it comes to you.”

“Dev, I—”

“Ssh,” he interrupts, sweeping his thumb along my lower lip, and the look in his eyes almost melts my panties off. My body sways forward, my craving for him reaching an unparalleled high. “This is the most supremely selfish act of all, but I can’t resist.”

“Resist what?” I croak, my voice hoarse, raw with need. I’m holding my breath in anticipation. Every nerve ending in my body is on heightened alert.

He licks his lips, dropping his hungry eyes to my mouth. My body pulses with need, and I squirm a little, keeping my eyes locked on his, knowing the desire I see is mirrored on my own face.

“This,” he confirms, closing the gap between us and slanting his mouth over mine.

Ahm wow…. Yeah so this is me thinking about Inseparable by Siobhan Davis. It was the first book I ever read by this author and to make one thing clear – it will not be my last if I see one with a blurb that appeals to me.

 

And the other thing is I was a little scared about the plot of this book because obviously we have one girl and two guys here and no matter how you turn it to every normal thinking person it is obvious that someone will get hurt along the way. How much and how deep – well that is  in the hands of the author.

 

So YES this book will hurt – there is no nice way to say it so I am telling it like it is.

 

There is no way that I am telling you how or why it hurt – only one thing – I am so angry with one of the leading characters – I am not sure if it is allowed to be angry with him considering the facts of the plot but I am and I am not willing to hide that ….

 

And my anger is divided in two sections the first is my anger at him for not trusting his friends and the second is for torturing them. There would have been circumstances where I would have understood his actions but the one given to me as a reader was not good enough – sorry but there is no sugarcoating here from my side.

 

This book touches so many different areas of life that it is hard to express my thoughts in a general way that does not give away spoilers. It is just that the author has an amazing ability to twist and turn the story in a way that you realize really quick that she will not spare the characters. The three leading characters as well as the side characters were all developed amazingly well and had such intense plotlines that I as a reader felt like I was put through a blender while reading.

 

I think you should not read any reviews containing them because knowing stuff will take away from the plot (trust me I am probably one of the few people that usually needs spoilers to decide to read a book)

 

It was a shock to see it has “only” 450 pages – yeah I know in the age of 150 page novels this is a lot but reading this book it felt more like it was about 1000 pages because there is so much in there that it sometimes feels like you have been with these characters a lifetime.

 

So again – yes it hurts – (Usually I would say “enjoy” – but I am not sure I can do that this time…….– but I think you should read this book anyway.

Blog Tour – Purrfect Santa by Jessie Lane and Chasity Bowlin

Title: Purrfect Santa: Howls Romance
Author: Jessie Lane & Chasity Bowlin
Genre: Paranormal Romance Novella
Release Date: December 12, 2017

A woman afraid to love …
Nikki knows what it is to lose those you love. With her focus on her orphaned sister, she hasn’t given herself the chance to process her own grief over the loss of their parents. Life is chaos and the last complication she needs is a mate.

A lion alone for too long …
Joe Miller knows chaos. Being orphaned as a child, he’s never had a family to call his own. Crashing with a friend for the holidays, he’s hoodwinked into playing Santa Claus at a local mall. The last thing on his mind is finding a mate.

A love worth the risk …
With her baby sister on her hip, sadness in her eyes, and a longing in her heart, Nikki waits in line with her sister to see Santa. From the moment he scents her, Joe is in deep. It’s going to take everything he has to convince Nikki the love outweighs the risk to her heart. Luckily for Joe, he has fate and Nikki’s adorable baby sister on his side. After all, who can say no to the Purrfect Santa at Christmas?
Chapter One

If one more kid tried to pull his beard, he was going to roar.

Joe looked at the small spawn of Satan currently sitting on his lap and held in the urge to growl. The kid was maybe five years old, had blonde hair, blue eyes and dimples galore. His first thought was she was adorable. Now, after she’d pulled on his Santa beard during the picture, he knew better. She was nothing but trouble. If he really were Santa, he would give her coal in her stocking and a letter advising her parents to put her in the naughty corner.

“Smile, Santa!”

The photographer’s words were more of a warning than a cue to get ready for the second picture. So Joe played his role, ho ho ho’d, and smiled for the camera while the brat on his lap asked him for a pony.

There had been a time when Joe hadn’t dreaded Christmas so much. Back when he was a kid and everything about Christmas had still seemed so magical. Not so much anymore. It sucked when you spent the holidays alone. To say he was a bit bitter about the holiday season was an understatement.

Which was part of the reason he couldn’t believe he was here at The Mall of the Smokies, being the damn Santa. How had he gotten wrangled into this position again?

His buddy Sam. Buddy. So much for never leaving a man behind, he thought. There he sat, covered from head to toe in red velvet that was none too fresh and none too clean, thanks to the boozy sweat of the previous wearer. Of course, he’d also had more than one kid with a leaky diaper on his lap that day.

And Sam, where was Sam? Nowhere to be seen.

Joe and Sam had served together in the Marine Corps, but once Sam had completed his term of service, he’d come back home to help run the family business, a lodge in the mountains of East Tennessee. Joe, having nowhere to go after getting out of the service himself, had taken Sam up on his offer to crash at the Bearadise Lodge.

There was just one catch. The Lodge was sponsoring Santa’s Workshop at the local outlet mall, and they were short one Santa. Apparently, the old Santa had been fired for drinking on the job.

Damn that Sam!

After only one day of being Santa, Joe could see why the previous hire had been driven to drink. These kids were hell on his nerves. Like the blonde brat who was once again pulling on his beard. He was just about to give her a little growl when she hopped off his lap and ran giggling to her mother, who gave him an unapologetic glance before dismissing him entirely.

This job would have been so much easier if he were in a shifter-run community. Then he could growl all he wanted. Instead, he was dealing with humans and had to keep his feline traits under wraps.

As the next kid, a little boy about the age of four, climbed on to his lap and proceeded to fart, Joe did his best not to cringe. Bullets and bad guys he could deal with. Snot-nosed kids were apparently his downfall. He’d only been at this for a day and he was thinking of telling Sam he could shove this Santa job where the sun didn’t shine. Joe didn’t even want to think about doing this until Christmas Eve. Three days away. Three long, miserable, endless days of bratty kids, droopy diapers, and disaffected parents more interested in their phones than their kids.

In fact, as the next kid proceeded to sneeze all over him, Joe considered walking out right then.

But then something happened that kept him glued to his seat. His sharp lion senses caught a new smell among the crowd. Peppermint and sugar cookies.

Mate, his lion roared inside his head.

The one person that was cosmically meant for him and him alone. The woman that Mother Nature deemed his. He scanned the crowd until he finally saw her at the end of the line, waiting to come see him.

Short, with generous curves that would fill his hands, she had black hair pulled to the top of her head in a messy bun. He wondered what color her eyes were, being too far away to see them. Scanning the rest of her body, he suddenly stopped when he came to the thing that shocked him the most.

A kid on her hip.

Was it her child? From this far away, he couldn’t scent the small one. Had someone already laid hands on his mate? His lion roared again, only this time it was in protest. No one should touch his mate but him! He would slaughter the man who had dared give his mate a cub.

“SANTA!” the elf behind the camera shouted.

Joe snapped his attention back to the man he was going to eviscerate for taking his concentration away from his mate, only to find a scared human staring at him. It was then he realized the child on his lap was shaking in fear.

The elf inched forward to whisper so the others in line couldn’t hear. “You growled at him, Santa! Say you’re sorry.”

His stomach sank. To say he felt like a colossal piece of shit was an understatement. He had been so wrapped up in his emotions that he had let his lion slip out a little in public, which was a big hell no in the shifter rules. Joe looked at the little boy on his lap and gave the kid a big smile, trying to play off what had happened. “How would you like a stuffed lion for Christmas? They go grrrrrrr.”

The little boy looked at him with wide eyes that slowly turned from fear to curiosity. “You can make a stuffed lion that growls?”

Joe nodded. “Sure can. I can put the elves to work on it right away if that’s what you want.”

The little boy scrunched his face up in thought but then shook his head no. “I really want a bike for Christmas, Santa. Can I have that instead of the lion?”

Relieved that the boy was no longer scared, Joe gave him a big grin and a wink. “I’ll see what I can do.”

“Yippee!” The boy squealed as he jumped off Joe’s lap and ran to his mother, who was waiting for him next to the photographer.

Joe watched as the boy happily walked away, then quickly turned his attention back to his mate, who was watching him from the back of the line with big wary eyes. The mating scent was too strong. He couldn’t tell whether or not the child was hers, but that didn’t matter.

She was his.

And if that meant he had to accept another man’s cub into his home to claim his mate, then that’s what he would do. Although he would take great pleasure in rubbing his scent all over both woman and cub every chance that he got. Just to make sure that everyone knew that they were now his and his alone.

A contemporary romance author running on coffee and sticky kisses from my rowdy four little boys.

When I’m not running my kiddos around or having a lunch date of fajitas with my husband (and high school sweetheart), you can find me outside.

I’m on nearly every social media platform. Please find me on the ones you frequent – I love chatting with readers.

A nursing student, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband in Chicago where she was born and raised. Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met.

Emma Scott:

I write romances with flawed characters, characters with artistic hearts: builders, poets, and writers of various makes and models. I love to write book lovers; those who have found refuge, companionship, and escape in books, much as we do in real life. I like realism, honesty, authenticity in storytelling. I love to write about enduring love, soul-deep love, in as real a setting as I can make, but with big smooshy HEAs. I believe in diversity, open-mindedness, and inclusion. I like sweetness mixed with steam, love conquering all, and above all, hope. Love always wins.

Meghan Quinn:

A BLONDE AT HEART

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Kate Stewart:

Kate Stewart lives in Charleston, S.C. with her husband, Nick, and her naughty beagle, Sadie. A native of Dallas, Kate moved to Charleston three weeks after her first visit, dropping her career of 8 years, and declaring it her creative muse. Kate pens messy, sexy, angst-filled contemporary romance as well as romantic comedy and erotic suspense because it’s what she loves as a reader. A lover of all things ’80s and ’90s, especially John Hughes films and rap, she dabbles a little in photography, can knit a simple stitch scarf for necessity only and does a horrible job of playing the ukulele. Aside from running a mile without collapsing, traveling is the only other must on her bucket list. On occasion, she does very well at vodka.

She absolutely adores reading and her friends growing up used to tease her when she trailed after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. She loves stories with alpha males, sassy heroines, hot sex and happily ever afters. She is a bit of a genre hopper in both her reading and her writing. So far she’s written books in several romance sub-genres including new adult, contemporary, paranormal and romantic suspense.

She is the mother of two wonderful sons who inspired her to chase her dream of being an author. She wants them to learn from her that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.

I was surprised by TEAM Player Anthology containing books by Adriana Locke, Charleigh, Ella Fox, Emma Scott, Kate Stewart, L.J. Shen, Kennedy Ryan, Mandi Beck, Meghan Quinn, Rochelle Paige & Sara Ney.  Novellas / Short Stories are a tricky thing. I honestly believe that sometimes it is much more difficult to write a standalone 5 star novella than a full novel. Because lets be honest if you have such a limited number of pages how do you manage to tell a full story with full developed characters and enough background to draw the reader into your circle ? It has to be a special kind of story written by an author that is good on minimizing details.  And Anthologies are again a complete new set of problems – how can you find ONE rating for a book with so many different authors and stories. I always feel that is impossible so I try to grab one story out of it that appeals the most to me and in this special case it was the story that LJ Shen wrote.

 

I never read a short story from her but I read several of her novels and I loved them. Her writing skills also managed to convince me this time. I admit a novel will never reach a full blown 5 star level with me. ( I think ), a 4.5 level yes that might rarely happen so you won’t see the difference but I know it. LJ’s story is a solid 4 in my books because she managed to make everything right except the fact that my emotions were not in the story. But again – as I said I can not imagine that really happening … I think the shortest story that I ever read that did that was “Playing in the Rain” by Jane Harvey-Berrick (and I am not even sure how many pages that had) and here I (ughh no not going to comment on the plot).

 

Back to TEAM Player. I think the Anthology consists of an interesting selection of great authors that should be able to supply something for many different tastes. As with every short story the reader should not expect fully developed characters with extended backgrounds to dive into. But for short reading pleasure of medium intensity these authors will guarantee and I can recommend this collection for you to enjoy.
