Synopsis

Ivie Butonelli has lived her entire life being no one’s priority. Her crappy parents could care less if she lived or died. When she meets a local band, she finds that getting kicked out to live on her own at seventeen could be the one thing that kind of works in her favor. She loves her bass and her music, not to mention the guitarist/ lead singer, but she can’t ever tell him that. Her answer - moving from bad relationship to bad relationship and constantly being disappointed, until it becomes more dangerous than just disappointment.
Gable Johnson has always been the care taker in his house, especially since it came out that his father had two families. He took care of his sister growing up and tried to help his mother get past the gaping hole in her life that his bastard dad left. At seventeen, he knew he met the girl that could break him - or he’d break her. All this time, he’s kept his hands and heart away from her. She’s the bass player in his band and all he has that’s his own is his music. If he goes after the girl and screws it up, he’ll lose his music, too.
When the band gets an offer to go on tour, and Ivie’s latest relationship turns violent, she has decisions to make. Going on tour and getting away makes the most sense, but being in close quarters with Gable for months could mess with her head.
Gable’s anger when Ivie shows up to leave for the tour ignites all of the feelings he’s been hiding from himself, and everyone else, for years. Can they survive this tour together without destroying everything they’ve worked for? Can they survive each other? Will the lyrics of their hearts keep them in bliss or tear them apart?

*Blog Blitz* Love, Honor & Hope

LHH_blitz_banner
Love, Honor, & Hope - A Benefit for the United States War Veteran’s PTSD Foundation Eight authors are joining forces to support one fantastic cause. Beginning June 24, 2014, Love, Honor, & Hope, an anthology of eight full-length novels, will be available for 30 days at the low price of $0.99. That’s right, just 99 pennies. The best part is that 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the United States War Veteran’s PTSD Foundation.

LHH_OOBAteaser
 
PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, affects approximately 19% of the military men and women returning from Afghanistan and Iraq—and that’s just those who have been diagnosed. The percentage is expected to grow as more of our military members seek treatment. It’s a heartbreaking trend for the men and women who sacrifice so much for our freedoms, especially with benefits being cut and promotions being threatened.

LHH_SMteaser

The United States War Veteran’s PTSD Foundation is a non-profit charity that focuses on providing FREE care to combat military members, both active and veterans. They can’t do it alone, which is why we’ve made the decision to step up and do something. All eight of the authors have their personal reasons for supporting this cause. Cherime MacFarlane, author of Heart of the Hunter said, “For me, it’s the way a very quiet man, my uncle, receded into the background whenever a family function took place. I did understand he came back from WWII that way. A young man, easy going and quick to laugh became a recluse. My father also served in WWI, as did a second uncle who returned far from the mischievous young man he was before the war claimed his youth. I was a young mother during the Vietnam era. I had friends who did not come back from Vietnam. I had other friends who did come home but were permanently damaged by the things they saw. For me, this is an opportunity to give back something to the men who served their country when the call came. My uncles and father are gone now, but I do hope, in some small way, to pay it forward for them. This is a tiny step, but as the man once said, every journey begins with that first step.”

LHH_LAFteaser

It’s easy to sit back and talk about helping our veterans and active military members. To step up and help is something all together different. We are answering the call for help. Will you answer? All it takes is for you to log on to Amazon or Barnes & Noble and spend 99 cents, and then hopefully share the great news on our labor of love. Not only will you receive eight full-length novels for your enjoyment, you will also tell our men and women who suffer from this terrible and debilitating illness that we’ve got their backs.

LHH_OOBAteaser

Love, Honor, & Hope is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble from June 24 to July 23. It includes the following full-length novels:
Out of the Box Awakening - Jennifer Theriot
Early One Morning  - Aubree Lane
Lost and Found  - Jennifer Yarbrough
Scary Modsters - Diane Rinella
Tropical Dreams  - Kelly Cozzone
Sisters of the Night  - Linda Lee Williams
Heart of the Hunter  - Cherime MacFarlane
Piece of Heaven - Sammie J

*Review* Carnival by K.B. Nelson



 
*I was given a copy by author in exchange for an honest review*

Carnival is book 1 of the Carnival Series.

Charlie is a beautiful girl, she's funny, sarcastic, and doesn't take any sh*t. But just like any other teenager she had plans to go off to college. She was all set to attend Ohio State University then at the last minute changed her mind to stay at home and take care of her depressed mother, so she says but she thinks college isn't in her future at the moment.

Blue is a hot carnie who works at the carnival. He is sweet, charming, closed off and very mysterious. The only thing he has had growing up is the carnival, no home to go to. Then he makes a choice.

“I've spent my entire life dreaming of going home, but I've never had a home to go home to. I've decided to give life away from the carnival a shot. Most people run away to the carnival. Well, I'm running away from it.”

Charlie and Blue's relationship had so much chemistry you couldn't deny what they were feeling. The sex scenes were scorching!!! There was so many twist and turns in this story that you were left on the edge of your seat wanting more! I was hooked from the very first page.

“Have you already forgotten? Home isn't in Lakeview.” I grab his hand and place it to my chest “It's right here. Always here.”

In this story you will read about love, friendship, lies, drugs, alcohol. There will also be a tragedy, your heart will be tested. I fell in love with all the characters and I can't wait to see who's story is next!

When the truth finally surfaces can all the lies be forgotten? Can you forget everything you have ever known for love?

5 Stars

*Review* Kink by Nikki Sex


*I received a copy from the author in exchange for a honest review*
 
I fell in love with both Emily and Paul in Fate now their story continues in Kink. This can be read as a standalone but I recommend you read Fate first to get the full effect!
 
Emily continues to learn about Paul's life style.
 
Our sex life isn't always Master/Slave. We do other things, too. Although during sex, even if I don't call him Master, Paul is always in control.
 
But still he continues to hold back..

I want Paul to come to terms with the darker part of his nature. I'm hoping that if we face the Beast together, he can learn to accept it and therefore accept himself.

Paul is still a alpha dom who has to have control.

You belong to me,” I growl fiercely as I take her. “I own you.”

Kink will have you hooked from page one and also takes you on a emotional roller coaster ride. Just like every relationship there will be problems and fears.

For some reason, I still can't trust him. If I see him with another women, I have to walk away. He has to talk to people at work, that's his job. So this insecurity of mine is nuts, but I can't help but remember his proven track record.
Can Emily and Paul get past their insecurities? Can Paul make Emily trust him? Can he stay faithful? Or does all Emily's fears come to surface and ruin everything?

This book will have you squirming in your seat all hot and bothered. It's Hot, Erotic and everything in between! Nikki you did a fantastic job!

This is a YA/coming of age novel. The beginning for me starred off a little slow, but quickly picked up.
 
Raquel, or Rocky, as they call her, is extremely close with her bff Nat. Rock has a string attraction to Dante. They get together only to break up. Even when they aren't together, the still want each other. Rock has some things in her past the she isn't proud of.
Dante is completely swoon worthy yet brooding. His past is not something he likes to talk about. Rocky, is all he wants.
 
When they are finally together for what seems to be the last time, a horrific accident happens that is neither of their faults. Rocky keeps pushing everyone way.
I was really super pissed off that the book ended the way it did!!!! Yup, super mad!!! Just when another turn of events occur, the ending happened!!! No! I need more!!! Asap!!!
 
I think the author got stronger in her writing as she went on. I really liked the story and cannot wait to read the next part... which I hope is soon!!?!?!
 
4 out of 5 stars

*I was given a copy for a honest review*
Skylar's Dream was a fast and easy read. Skylar grew up with her best friend Rhiannon and her friend's brother Blaze. The three were always together. After her mother left and her father killed himself they are all she had.
Skylar has always been in love with Blaze and its not until recently that those feelings get put to use.
The three of them soon find out that they need to defeat the dark angels and save the world. Every night Skylar is awaken by a very real dream and in the dream she sees whats going to happen.
This story is intense and somethings had me thinking wow did that really happen? It was crazy how one minute she didn't have a family then the next she did:) Also how someone she lost gets to come back and help them save the world along with other things you wouldn't imagine.
I would definitely recommend this book if you are into paranormal!
