Book Blurb
In the final year of her business degree, Phuong has her future all mapped out. Finish studying, then go home and save her family’s business. Until her father dies and it all falls apart. Broke and jobless, she stumbles on a solution: find herself an Australian husband. Fast.

She’s not looking for love – Phuong doesn’t believe in fairy tales. Her marriage will be a business deal, pure and simple. But when she meets her husband-to-be and discovers he’s a reclusive rock star living at Romance Island Resort, maybe it’s time to believe a girl can live happily ever after.

excerpt
Jason didn’t wait for the rotors to stop before he leaped out of the helicopter door and sprinted for the hotel entrance.
“Welcome to Romance Island Resort, sir. Enjoy your stay!” came the pilot’s voice behind him, but Jason wasn’t listening.
He burst through the door and skidded to a stop in front of the Reception desk. “Where’s Audra?” Jason demanded. She was the only girl who could make him forget Angel. The only girl who could make this right. He needed her. Now.
The blonde girl at Reception stared at him. “We don’t have anyone named Audra here, sir.”
“Of course you do. Best maid I ever met. Tell her I’m here, and to meet me at my accommodation. I had Villa Maxima last time. The one with the huge spa tub in the bathroom. And make sure we have plenty of mango beer. Mangoes are her favourite.”
A second girl sidled behind the Reception desk next to the blonde. She looked Japanese, but her accent had Aussie overtones as she asked, “Did you say Audra? She was mad about mangoes. I bet Audra’s missing those now she’s in Antarctica.”
Jason laughed. “Antarctica? Don’t be ridiculous.” He turned his eyes back to the blonde. “Can you let her know I’m here?”
She looked lost until her eyes fixed on someone behind Jason. “Oh, Mr Meier, this man’s looking for Audra. He doesn’t believe that she’s gone.”
An older man with a professional smile held out his hand. “Good morning, Mr ah – ”
“Felix. Jason Felix.” Jason’s firm handshake almost crushed the other man’s fingers in his eagerness. “Where’s Audra?”
“Like Hana said, she’s in Antarctica, Mr Felix. Audra no longer works here.”
Jason’s heart plummeted. No Caitlin, no Audra…what was a rock star supposed to do.

Review: Seizing Control (Black Shamrocks MC #1) By: Kylie Hillman 

Review: Seizing Control (A Black Shamrocks MC Novel) By: Kylie Hillman 
Amazon Link: http://www.amazon.com/Seizing-Control-Black-Shamrocks-Book-ebook/dp/B014R2HSQU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1443612166&sr=8-1&keywords=Seizing+Control+Kylie+Hillman

  
After overcoming a tragic, brutal relationship Lainey thinks she has found a happily ever after with Mik, they are on the verge of getting married when Lainey’s worst nightmare steals her away and this leads to a race against the clock that brings in the whole Black Shamrocks MC. Lainey’s father and over protective brothers are all members as well as Mik and there will be hell to pay until she is returned to them and vengeance is paid in full. 
This book deals with some very dark themes and was pretty tough to get through, like the warning says in the beginning it is dealt with sensitively and shows the real life consequences of what happens after. But since I was forwarned before reading one word of this story I knew there was darkness ahead. Still it was tough to read some parts. If you look past the darkness you will find a story of one woman’s strength to rise above and survive, you will find a story of love and family and all these storylines are interwoven with your favorite MC moments. 
It also states at the beginning that this is the first of five total books in the series and that each contains a happy for now since the series is still ongoing, and while there is no final resolution at the end it’s more of a to be continued. I will say that there is not a massive cliffhanger at the end which i thought was a good way to end this book. It wouldn’t seem true to the story if everything was all wrapped up at the end. So I can totally appreciate how the author stayed true to her vision for the series and gave us just enough to feel satisfied to end the book without throwing our eReader across the room due to a massive cliffhanger. I will definitely be one clicking book 2 when its out because while this isn’t my typical genre the story drew me in so I want to know what happens to these characters.

Kylie Hillman is an Australian author who was born and raised in Outback South Australia. A love of reading as a young child developed into a love of creating stories so she could always be found either scribbling away furiously in her notebook or entranced by an open book.

Mum to two gorgeous, talented children and wife to a Harley riding Aussie bloke, Kylie spent her twenties reading multiple books from many different genres and authors, and occasionally finding the time to write a story as inspiration hit. A devastating diagnosis of severe Crohn’s Disease at the age of twenty-four brought her accounting career to a screeching halt and after recovering from multiple surgeries, Kylie was left scrambling as to where her life was now headed. She began writing again as a way to alleviate the monotony of life as a stay-at-home mother to two school aged children and was finally driven to publish her first novel after falling in love with her characters and wanting to share them with others.

A self-proclaimed Queen of Sarcasm and Innuendo, Kylie also enjoys drinking copious amounts of tea, listening to eighties and nineties rock music and being taken for rides on the back of her husband’s Harley when the kids are at school. She is determined to one day ride her own Harley and her biggest wish is to see a cure developed for Crohn’s Disease in her lifetime.

A lover of dark romance featuring hot alpha’s, sassy heroines and real-life drama, Kylie’s first series is based around the Black Shamrocks Motorcycle Club and contains everything she loves about the genre. Seizing Control: Black Shamrocks MC is her debut novel and is part of a series of five books following the ups and downs of the love lives of the members of the Club. The second book in the series, Making Choices, will follow in early December 2015.

Kylie is also working on a stand-alone YA MMA novel and expects to release it early in 2016.Seizing Control - STALK HERE

Book Blurb

Lily Carter has one chance to save her family from destitution. She must marry.
The real question now is who? Lily longs for one man, but her attempts to attract Eric Sampson are foiled at every turn. Eric can’t see a future when he’s still tangled in his past, and Lily is forced to consider other suitors despite loving Eric.

When one suitor comes forward who could threaten Lily’s well-being, Eric must set his doubts about marriage aside to protect her. But events have been set in motion neither of them can stop. Will his past destroy both their futures?

excerpt

The tips of his fingers slid down her neck and over her collarbone. “You are so beautiful. Try as I might, I can’t seem to stop thinking about you.”
Lily’s entire body tingled as his lips touched the skin of her collarbone. She had never felt anything like this before and it was utterly amazing. Without thinking, her head tilted back as his lips moved up her neck and along her jaw.
Lily could not think a reasonable thought. She could only feel, and she knew she did not want this to end.

FATAL BEAUTY BOOK BLURB:

Charlotte was a good girl. Sweet and innocent, a debutante with her Daddy’s credit card and a fiancée who doted on her.
She was destined for a perfect picture life in Charleston.
Until everything goes wrong.
EJ grew up with everything she could ever want, and bored as hell. Nothing surprises her and nothing ever changes, and she wants out—whatever it takes.
Getting involved with Anthony Jacobs is probably the worst idea she’s ever had—and that makes it irresistible.
Until Charlie needs her.
New Orleans. Los Angles. Vegas.
Beautiful girls who know just how to get exactly what they want.
It’s all fun and games, sexy nights and wild parties.
But you can only manipulate your way out of so much, and when their past catches up, not even a pretty fucking smile will get them out of trouble this time.

FB_2WEEKS

EXCERPT:

 

Las Vegas Police Department, Interrogation Room B.

Detective Blackmon: State your name for the record.
Charlotte Brooks: (clears throat) Charlie Brooks.
Detective Blackmon: Your legal name, ma’am.
Brooks: Charlotte Suzanne Brooks.
Detective Blackmon: Have you been advised of your rights, ma’am?
Brooks: (soft laugh) you advised me of them. So yes.
Detective Blackmon: Do you want to tell us how you came to know Ms Ella Jane Munro?
Brooks: Where is she?
Detective Blackmon: Ma’am, I need you to calm down and give your statement.
Brooks: Where the fuck is EJ?
Detective Blackmon: At night fifty pm the LVPD were called to a hotel room secured with a credit card in your name. Upon searching it, we found drugs, weapons and almost two hundred in cash. Do you want to say anything about that?
Brooks: I wasn’t in that room, and neither were my belongings. You verified that. My wallet was stolen. And I want EJ.
Brooks: Why the hell are you looking at me like that?
Detective Blackmon: Ma’am…
Brooks: (screaming) where the hell is EJ?

Chapter 1

If she could look at it, with the hindsight of everything that had happened, she would say that it all began six months before Wallace Bryce Talbert went missing. The day Ella Jane Munro sold Llewellyn Koonts a hit of blow in the locker room of her father’s country club.
Of course, if she had the luxury of hindsight, she might have changed everything by simply going to lunch at the Greenhouse instead of tennis at the club.
Then again. Charlotte had never had much use for hindsight and even less for regrets.

*

Charlie Brooks was an institution at the Buringtree Country Club. She had grown up in the halls, played tennis early and well, swam in the summer and pranced around the greens in tiny shorts, her blonde hair bobbing in her signature braid.
She was a perfect debutant. Sweet as sugar when it suited her, and an utter bitch when it didn’t. The staff at the club lived in fear of her temper. HR had to step in when she was in high school and they couldn’t keep a staff–Charlie either terrorized them into quitting or demanded they were fired over minor infractions.
And because she was Travis Brooks only daughter, she usually got her way.
Ella Jane Munro was different from Charlie. Just as bitchy, just as demanding. Filthy fucking rich. But Charlie revealed in who and what she was born to. She never wanted anything but to be the queen bee at her private school, at the club, and Vanderbilt. Everything she did was carefully calculated for how it would reflect on her and how people viewed her.
It’s why she and Ella Jane had never gotten along, despite being in the same circles.
From the outside, they would have made the perfect frenemies. Self-destructive, the kind of too close back-stabbing that would fuel the wet dreams of high school boys with visions of love hate sexcapdes.
Ella Jane and Charlie didn’t cooperate. Ella was bored to death with country club life and everything expected of a deb. And she might be an it girl, in her blasé way, but she never aspired to steal Charlie’s crown.
They existed for most of their life, in a kind of live and let live détente.
No one could explain why that changed. It was whispered about, of course. Two of Charleston’s favorite daughters, suddenly inseparable? Everyone had a theory. No one knew the truth, though.
No one would have ever believed the truth.

*

The door to her office opened and closed again, in the kind of way that was an announcement. She swallowed a smirk and layered another coat of pale pink on her nails.
Most girls would pay for a manicure, but she had always found the ritual of her nail care to be soothing.
The cash slapped down on her desk and she blinked at it slowly before letting her gaze slide lazily up to the woman across from her.
Sharp green eyes, long jet black hair with a single streak of magenta in bangs cut across her forehead. A pair of designer skinny jeans and a loose, sheer black tank top scattered with polka dot skull and cross bones, lace edged cami under it showing off her amazing tits.
Only Ella Jane could stalk into her office in designer jeans and a Walmart clearance top and look perfect instead of ridiculous.
“Your half.” She says.
Charlie finishes her last finger, admiring it briefly before screwing the lid on her nail polish and giving the other woman her attention.
“When are you meeting with Jacobs?”
“Tomorrow. Don’t be impatient, greedy girl.”
She bites down on the acidic response that wants to rise, and arches an eyebrow silently. EJ stares at her for a long moment, before she huffs a sigh and drops into the high back leather chair across from her.
“You can’t do anything until Monday anyway. Isn’t your engagement thing tonight.”
It’s posed as a question, but she knows damn well when it is. Charlie goes still and her gaze clouds for a heartbeat.
“Do you want me to come?” EJ asks, quietly.
The offer startles a laugh from Charlie and she grins, a dry, mocking thing. “And how the hell would I explain that? No. Stay on your side of the club, and I’ll stay on mine. I’ll be fine.”
There’ a tense moment, as they stare at each other, and Charlie wonders just how much EJ suspects.
They weren’t supposed to become friends—it was a business arrangement. One that benefited them both and made EJ’s supplier happy. But it had evolved.
It made her nervous, and nothing made her nervous. She didn’t like it.
“Don’t be a bitch, Charlie,” EJ says coldly.
“Then don’t fucking hover.” Charlie snaps.
Anger flares in EJ’s eyes, for a moment, and then it vanished, and she stands. “Fine. Have fun with your boy.”
Her tone is mocking and knowing and it stings a little as she watches EJ leave.
For a moment, it occurs to her that she should apologize. She dismisses it just as quickly and grabs the stack of cash, standing and moving to the wall where her safe is.
It’s crammed with cash and a small black revolver. As she adds the new stack to the others, she touches the gun.
It’s soothing, and her unease and nerves settle at the touch of the cool metal.
It’ a standard black Glock. Most of her girlfriends carry a tiny pink pistols they can tuck into their Coach bags with equally ridiculous sized dogs. But Travis Brooks always said that if she wanted to be man enough to carry a gun, she’d damn well carry a man’s gun.
“Charlotte? We have a meeting with the partners.”
She snaps the safe shut, keying the lock and spins to smile at her fiancée.
Wallace Bryce Talbert the Third. Tre to his friends and enemies alike. A golden boy in her father’s law firm, and the man she had promised to spend her entire life with.
He’s grinning at her, holding a hand out and she swallows her nerves and fear as she places her hand in his and follows him out of the office.

*

EJ pads out of her bedroom, her naked body wrapped in moonlight. A bottle of spumante sits discarded in a silver wine chiller, and she grabs it as she moves to her purse and pull out a pack of cigarettes. She smokes almost pensively, staring out the window. Behind her, she can hear him moving and she keeps her gaze trained on the window as smoke curls around her, dissipating slowly.
“You should come back to bed,” he says, and she can hear the tease in his tone. She barely manages to keep from rolling her eyes as she wraps her lips around the cigarette again, pulling one last time before dropping it into a forgotten champagne flute.
“You should go. I’ve got an early morning tomorrow.”
Surprise and anger chase across his face, and she waits to see if he’ll follow through.
Clayton Poole was the heir of an ancient oil tycoon, and would be much more interesting if he would lose his temper every once in a while.
He was a fun fuck, always took care to get her off, and he opened doors even she couldn’t walk though. But he was boring as fuck when they weren’t naked.
“I’ll call you tomorrow,” he says, lamely, and she flick a look at him as she pours a glass of spumante.
“Don’t. I’ll call you soon.” She gives him a smile and kisses his cheek before returning to her bedroom.
She lets out a sigh when the door shuts behind him, and settles on her bed. It smells of sex still, but she’s too drunk and lazy just now to strip the sheets.
Besides, she likes the smell of sex, even if Clayton isn’t her favorite fuck buddy.
There is a joint in her bedside table and she fishes it out and lights it, pulling on it deeply as she thumbs through her social media.
The entire newsfeed is abuzz with the engagement party of the year, and she grits her teeth. She should have been there. Clayton had been invited—Charlie will be pissed he didn’t show, a thought that strings a smirk across her lips—and she could have crashed it. Nothing to be done once she was there.
Once upon a time, it would have been amusing just to get a rise from Charlie.
When the fuck had that changed? When she realized that Charlie was just as unhappy in their fucking perfect life as she was?
Or was it when Charlie blackmailed EJ into sharing her distribution, earning her respect as more than another empty headed social climber.
She huffs, and takes another pull on the joint. The smell of weed fill the bedroom, covering the scent of sex. Her muscles are loose and relaxed against the bed and she let’s her phone drop beside her, drifting on her high, drunk and post-orgasmic relaxation combining to pull her down into sleep.
The room is pitch black, her body hot and sweating against the rough duvet when she wakes. Her mouth is dry and for a disorienting moment, she wonders where the hell she is, and what happened.
Her phone buzzes against her thigh again, and she fumbles for it.
“Charlie?” she croaks, and swallows. Reaches for the spumante on the bedside table.
“I need you.”
The whisper from the other end of the line chills her, and she shudders, rubbing away the goosebumps that trace along her arms.
That’s it—those three words and nothing more.
Sleep is forgotten completely as she sits up and nods. “I’ll be right there.”

Review: A Paper Trail (My Paper Heart Series #3) By: Magan Vernon

Review: A Paper Trail By: Magan Vernon

I loved this story! It fits in so well with the others that you just cruise right along! In this book we see the evolution of Blaine and Libby’s relationship. One minute they are enjoying Blaine’s birthday during Mardi Gras and next thing you know it’s hello! Real life smacks them in the face. 

I loved watching the transition of their characters and while it’s the good, the bad and the ugly. It seems like the little fights and the epic makeups make for a truly touching story when all is said and done. It just emphasizes the best of small town living. One of my favorite things about living in the south (just a personal opinion) 

Things get a little chaotic when everybody starts making plans and we gradually see Libby becoming used to all of the changes in her life and embracing the new normal. This all culminates in the sweetest ending! I absolutely cannot wait until the next part of the story!

Royce

excerpt

The sun peaks out from behind the clouds, making a little steam rise from the wet sidewalk. This early, and already the humidity is setting in. I round the corner, beach view off to my right, the path lined with palmetto trees and knee-high beach grass in the sand.
I walk up the steps to the porch and knock on the door. As expected, there’s no answer. It wouldn’t hurt to do one walk-through of the place before he arrives, so I use my master key and go in.
Everything looks clean and perfect, the air conditioner is set at 72, drawing the humidity out of the air. There’s a welcome basket on the counter that contains nothing on his list. I consider removing it, but decide to leave it. I go upstairs and check the six rooms. Everything looks good.
If he’s staying by himself, he’ll surely be using the master bedroom, so I go back downstairs.
The blinds are closed, so I walk around to the other side of the bed to open them and almost trip over a set of bags.
“Hello.” The voice behind me is low and smooth.
I turn and see a man dressed in blue shorts. His white t-shirt is off but it’s slung over his left shoulder. He’s wearing a baseball cap, but I don’t know what the insignia on it means. His shoulders and chest are broad, and his left bicep flexes a little as he leans on the doorjamb. He looks like someone who just walked in off the beach, not at all like the guy I was expecting.
“I’m Audrey Mitchell. Mr. Lewis, right?”
“Yes.”
I step away from the window and toward him. “I’m sorry, I didn’t know you were already here. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have—”
“It’s fine,” he says, cutting me off mid-sentence. “I’m used to finding strange people in my bedroom.”
I pause, unsure what to say. I’ve just apologized.
He smiles. “Relax.” He looks down at my chest and I think he’s appraising me, looking at my boobs, but he looks up immediately. “I’m just fucking with you, Audrey. Nice to meet you.” He lifts a hand.
This is the first time in my life anyone has ever said any form of the word “fuck” when we first met. I don’t sense arrogance from this guy, but rather a confidence I’ve never seen in anyone I’ve met.
I take his hand. “Nice to meet you, too, Mr. Lewis.”
“Please, call me Adam.”
I’m suddenly aware that he’s still holding my hand. Or am I holding his? I pull back a little, and he lets my hand go.
“Adam,” I say. “When did you arrive?”
“A little after four this morning.”
So Jeanine checked him in and forgot to mention that critical bit of information to me. She was hurrying out the door, though.
“I was just taking a walk on the beach.” He pushes off the doorjamb and walks past me, to the bathroom. I notice he has something in his mouth. It’s white, and I realize it’s a mint. I hear the water running in the sink, then splashing, and figure he’s washing his face.
This is the part that’s always hardest for me. The small talk. I’m not into small talk. It’s boring, it’s forced, usually meaningless. It’s the one part of the job that I don’t like, but that goes with any job, I suppose.
“Hope you didn’t get caught in the rain,” I say.
He steps out of the bathroom, blotting his face with a hand towel. He has taken his hat off. His hair is sandy blond and short. “How long have you worked here?”
I take his question as more small talk and answer, “Two weeks,” but I’m wrong about the chit-chat.
“How old are you?”
It’s an odd question. I’ve never been asked this before at this job or any other, but I see no smooth way to refuse to answer. “Twenty-two.”
He nods, then tosses the towel back in the bathroom. He takes a few steps toward me. Close enough that I can see his green eyes.
Usually, I would be put off by a guy staring into my eyes like he does, but it doesn’t bother me at all. I look back at him, then his gaze travels down to my chest, legs, feet, then back up. A brazen assessing scan if I ever saw one.
I’ve had guys check me out before, but they usually try to do it secretly. He doesn’t make the slightest effort. It’s almost like he wants me to know.
“I need to know that I can trust you. That I can count on your discretion.” I can smell the peppermint on his breath, and God, the hard lines of his jaw make me want to reach up and touch them.
I swallow hard, suddenly finding myself wondering about him. “Of course,” I say, and it’s no lie. In fact, I’d be breaking company policy if I were to violate any guest’s privacy. If that’s what he means. What does he mean?

Seriously if these ladies rewrote the phone book I would read that thing cover to cover and fall absolutely in love with it! The latest book in the Date series is incredible. You have all the fun moments of It’s A Date, smexy times which involve a certain kind of candy and Heather’s insatiable addiction to nail polish and the color pink (But who dosen’t right?) there are amazingly romantic moments that feel cinematic in scope and there are some dark moments which really surprised me! This was a book that I was counting on to be a light, romantic adorable romp of a book and while parts of it totally are there are some parts that you are reaching for a bottle of pink moscato and trying to not bawl your eyes out. This book had my emotions all over the map and I went along willingly because well see statement one I will read anything these ladies write and because the story is fast paced and draws you in, in the first book I got invested in these characters and wanted to know how things turned out for them, we see the next chapter of Heather and Noah’s story in this book and the major cliffhanger from It’s A Date is explained (Thank goodness!) I like how this book did not directly pick up in the same scene that we left the characters in from book one, it eases us back into the story before all our questions are answered. And from that moment of lift off you had better hang on to your seat because you will get carpal tunnel syndrome from trying to get to the next page quickly. . . Especially toward the end of the book. I freely admit that I was frantically scanning ahead to make sure something wasn’t true that I had to go back and reread the ending a couple times.

So sue me but it’s hard to read y’all with your jaw on the floor that’s all I’m saying! 😉 and now I am moving both of these books to the must have print copies of list!
