Beloved by Corinne Michaels *Must Read Friday*

Beloved by Corinne Michaels

One of my favorite reads of 2014. The author gifted me a copy, after leaving a comment on her page. Catherine was a girl weary of any man staying, because she'd been left by everyone. Jackson was the hero, who was going stay. I laughed, I cried. This was the romance I'd been waiting for! Her cliffhanger has left me in agony waiting for book 2! It will be worth the wait!

This is what I wrote in May, after reading!

OMG! So good! I've experienced heart pounding, laughs, and tears! I'm going to be in agony waiting on the next book in the series. No eye rolling drama or forced dialogue. I've gotten in trouble with the hubby for my one click addiction. This was a gift from the author but I would definitely purchase this and any future novels from Corinne Michaels. Her writing trumps any and all domestic squabbles.

Must Read! Buy now, if you haven't already.

*Excerpt* A Perfect Moment by Becca Lee

A Perfect Moment (Perfect, #1) by Becca Lee 

$0.99 Sale Blitz

“When life threatens perfect, it’s time to step up and kick life in the balls.”

Ella's perfect moment was taken from her is the worst possible way. Humiliated, heartbroken and absolutely determined not to allow her heart be destroyed for a second time, she builds an ice wall around her heart.

Preston has known that he was in love his big sister's best friend since the age of fifteen. Over ten years on, and an opportunity to be her knight in shining armour is too good to miss. Putting his heart on the line, he's on a mission to show Ella that the perfect moment is possible.

Ella's instinct is to run when she realises her feelings for her bestie's little brother may just run a little bit deeper than just friends. But if she can't run, she'll try every trick in the book to shake off his affection and realign his feelings.

She already had her perfect moment, and there is no chance she'll let her heart thaw for Preston. No matter how good he looks in the firefighter's Christmas calendar.

*** Contains steamy-hot moments, romance, friendship and a bulk load of swearing - non explicit sex scenes. ***

Canvas of the Heat by Melissa Taggart *Review Request*

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review

Canvas of the Heart by Melissa Taggart

I felt like this could be an amazing book. A story about a girl in a wheelchair finding love and happiness, great concept.
I just felt like there was a lack of build up and drama. Every chapter ended in a neat bow.
There were huge gaps of time missing, and I wanted to know what happened!
If you love super happy stories, where everything goes right, this is the book for you!

Thank you,

Meghen Barker

Message from Lauren:
The Seductive Nights erotic romance series continues with a new installment starring a new couple later this fall! While the first four books in the series followed Julia and Clay, the next two will be about Michelle and Jack, and can be read without having read the earlier books. (Though, why wouldn't you want to read about Clay and Julia?!)
I can't wait to introduce readers to Jack Sullivan. He's sexy, broody, witty, smart, and a little bit damaged and he's also my favorite kind of hero - the kind who wears a suit! Jack Sullivan is a sex toy mogul and is the CEO of a high-end line of pleasure products - he'll bring all that experience to the bedroom as he sweeps Michelle Milo off her feet - expect many steamy encounters between these two! Michelle needs some good loving after all - readers know her already as Clay's friend from Night After Night who loved him unrequitedly from afar. Now it's finally her turn in the romance arena, and Jack will make sure she gets it good!!
To give readers a chance to get to know this newest dirty-talking alpha hero of mine, I will be releasing a free prequel novella called ONE NIGHT WITH HER on October 21 about the night they meet and the mind-blowing encounter they have in a New York City hotel. The novel itself will release on Nov. 11. NIGHTS WITH HIM is available to preorder on iBooks, with an Amazon preorder to go up about three weeks before the novel's release.

Clipped Wings Series by Helena Hunting

Clipped Wings Series by Helena Hunting

Clipped Wings, Inked Armor, and three novellas Cupcakes and Ink, Cracks in the Armor, and Between the Cracks
I absolutely loved Tenley and Hayden, their individual pasts were so unique and tragic.
Beautifully written, a slow build that sticks with you throughout.
This story, I believe, started as Twilight fan fiction, I couldn't tell!
This series shows realistic portrayals of guilt from tragedy, substance abuse and recovery, suffering from chronic pain, stereotyping, PTSD, O.C.D, and police harassment.
The novella, Cupcakes and Ink, was a prequel to Clipped Wings and shows us at that glimpse of the first thoughts and sightings of our heroine and hero, Tenley and Hayden
The novellas, Cracks in the Armor and Between the Cracks, show the budding relationship of side characters, Chris and Sarah, and an outsider's view of Tenley and Hayden. So sweet!
The friendships and family relationships, were heartfelt, and felt true to the characters.
No over the top, eye rolling drama. Must read! Top 10, 2014 read for me! 

Clipped Wings - Amazon

Inked Armor - Amazon

The Auction DealThe Auction Deal by Sam Taylor Mullens
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Plagiarism Warning!!!!!
Sam Taylor Mullens is 100% a plagiarist.
I am appalled. Last week I was sent an ARC for the new novel The Auction Deal by Sam Taylor Mullens, I read and rated it. Earlier this week I received an email from Author Rachel Nunes stating she had wrote the same book in 1998, I had to investigate. Nunes' book is offered on Amazon for free so I dove right in. She was correct!
It seems Sam Taylor Mullens copied and pasted almost word word from A Bid for Love. Sam Taylor Mullens has removed the book from shelves, but I will be forever weary of anything she writes in the future.

The Auction Deal by Sam Taylor Mullens
I received my ARC yesterday in exchange for an honest review.

At first I was very hopeful that this would be a good read, I mean two people meant to bid on the same Buddha statue and sparks fly?
I was in. But really sparks didn't fly, and then there are notes under doors, and people suspecting everyone. A twist in the end that made zero, real world sense.
I was leaning towards 3 stars, then the hero proposed to the heroine in the end. After like a week. I didn't get butterflies, I wasn't anticipating, I was actually dreading turning the page.
I think this author has great potential, though. Had this book been twice as long, I can almost guarantee I would had felt what I was missing.
Awesome quotes heading each chapter, and I did learn a bit about Buddha. I just wish the author would have added more passion, and made the suspense more realistic.
I would try another novel by Sam Taylor Mullens if it's longer. This felt short and rushed like a serial.

Torii by Amanda Marie

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I absolutely loved it! It had been a while since I'd gotten into a fantasy novel, but this was perfect.
it starts out slow, but it's what is needed to setup the wonderful world Amanda Marie has created.
I love the different mythical beings, I love that we travel the globe, Love that we leave earth, and I love I get my YA love triangle fix!
Forget Teams Peeta/ Gale,  Edward/Jacob, Death/ Jack
Now we have Team Jason or Team Killan
And the heroine isn't annoying!
This is Book 1 ,it ends on a Cliffy!
By the way....  I'm totally team Jason.
