Blurb: One man thinks I'm a saint. The other thinks I'm a sinner. One man lives in the public eye. The other lurks in the shadows. One man wants to use me for his own needs. The other wants to use me for his revenge.
One man will get what's coming to him. The other will get what he deserves.
They told me good girls get rewarded. But I've been bad. Very bad.
I made a deal with The Devil...and I liked it.
 
 
Excerpt “This is mine while you’re with me.”
All mine. I kiss the column of her throat as I lift her hips, steering her movements. “No one gets access to your cunt without begging me for permission first. Understand?”
Her eyelids flutter closed as she matches my rhythm. “And if they don’t?”
I sink my teeth into her collarbone and thrust deeper, causing her to flinch. “I’ll slit their throat…and make you lick their blood off the floor.”
I hold her stare as I pump into her harder.
If she thought I was kidding…she doesn’t anymore.

New Review! Sirens (Prophecy Series #4) by Jessica Wayne 5 Cranky Stars

Siren (Prophecy Series Book 4)Siren by Jessica Wayne
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Cranky Stars


This is the fourth book in the fantastic Prophecy Series. After two years trouble free, Dakota wants to settle down and have a family, but Ana is reluctant at the moment she feels unrest coming. Ana and Dakota often travelled to the other worlds to make sure that they were ok. Suddenly a new enemy washes through a world and kills almost all, then she appeared in Terrenia a mermaid/siren. She wants Dakota and Vincent's son, but she is answering to a higher master. Ana's powers did not affect the siren at all. The siren could kill anybody within minutes by making them drown. She was determined to make Dakota hers to mate with.


As with the other books a lot goes on eg. Dakota is kidnapped, Ana is banished and a big surprise concerning Dakota's mother. Are but a few twists and turns. There is an amusing streak running through this book which is Vincent's ghost. The evil has left him in death, but he keeps popping up wanting to help with his funny little quips. Ana still doesn't trust him, but all he wants to do is help as this new enemy is after his son. Such a well written book left on a high, can't wait to read next one.

New Review! Heart of Glass by Jordyn White 4 Cranky Stars

Heart of GlassHeart of Glass by Jordyn White
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Cranky Stars


Mia had big dreams and ended up in New York City. She landed working at an art studio and it’s here she meets Luke. She becomes inspired by his art and against her better judgement she falls for him. Sadly, Luke is a married man and she just sticks to a strictly platonic friendship with him. Mia is very good at compartmentalizing her feelings. When a death in her family has her going back home, she knows it’s for the best and this is where she is supposed to land. Now running her own art studio, she has a life for herself and a group of friends and family who love her so. When she suggests Luke for an art installation at the local botanical garden, she doesn’t realize how hard seeing him will be.


Luke is a glass artist and has made a name for himself in NYC. He lives with the tremendous guilt and self-hatred thanks to his recently deceased wife. They were in the process of divorce when she had a tragic accident and now Luke is just going through the motions. When he is offered this position, he immediately jumps for it. Maybe some time away from the city will be what he needs to heal. He doesn’t expect to fall for Mia so quickly or for all his ugly insecurities to surface.


This book took the verbally and mentally abused woman and flipped it. Luke suffered some serious issues of not having much self-worth. He had a big heart and he really tried with Gwen, but she stomped on him repeatedly. Mia was almost too much of a pushover for me. I didn’t really connect with the story too much. It was very sugary sweet at times and maybe that was what the author was going for. Her group of friends are very extra. When I say they discuss everything they discuss everything. It got to be too much. I guess this story is perfect for someone who like a little secretive story line with their sugary sweet romance. Luke and Mia are perfect for each other.

Envy (The Elite Seven, #4)Envy by M.N. Forgy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Cranky Stars


My mouth is still hung open in shock. I keep saying holy crap repeatedly in my head and quite frankly out loud. So much my cats are looking at me like ok we get it. I wasn’t expecting that nope not even a little bit. I knew Sebastian had a story and it was a juicy one but that I wasn’t expecting.


Sebastian is that feeling you get when you feel someone is watching you but you just can’t see them. He lurks and hides and is darn good at it. Sebastian grew up poor always struggling until tragedy landed him in his filthy rich uncle’s world and now, he wants for nothing. He takes and takes and yet it’s never enough. He wants to have it all even a woman to stand by his side. When he makes his way into The Elite he thinks he has it all but that one missing piece and that is when he locks eyes on Sabella. Only problem is is that Sabella is very locked down because her brother is Wrath. When they begin to hang out as friends he starts an obsession and she wants nothing to do with it. Things get messy and The Brotherhood is running around in a blind fury.


I’m still in shock sorry. I know I know calm down. That ending though I’m still trying to make sense of it. What is that place? So many questions and I want all the answers. I kind of feel bad for Sebastian. He is like an uber rich Ted Bundy. I’m now excited bout Greed. He is very quiet so I’m wondering what his story will involve.

FadeFade by Ashley Munoz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 Cranky Stars


I really don’t know how to review this because I don’t want to give away a big plot of the story. I will admit I was lost for several chapters thinking ok did I miss something in Ramsey and Jimmy’s book that happened to Laney? I even read the prequel novella before starting Fade and still no dice. I jumped in and sure enough it unfolds in the pages of this book.


Laney has suffered trauma and Jackson is still relationship adverse. When he finally puts the final nail in the non-relationship coffin Laney tries so hard to erase him from her mind. Jackson doesn’t realize that all the heartache he is feeling is really love. When the source of Jackson and Laney’s trauma is back out in the world they are forced into hiding. They head to her family’s farm to lay low and hopefully mend their relationship. Just when they think its safe to head home, they realize the threat is knocking right on Laney’s door and Jackson must once again save her.


There is a lot of story to digest. It has moments where it hops back in time so the story can unfold. I found myself frustrated with both Jackson and Laney at times. How he couldn’t get in his thick head that he was capable of love and relationship worthy and Laney for how she dodged her feelings at every turn when it was a perfect time to talk. They went through a lot and it’s not all drama there is love deep down. There is family and friends and happy times. I suggest you read Glimmer first to get a glimpse of these two then the origin story of Jackson and Laney before you jump into Fade.

Release Blitz! Envy (The Elite Seven #4) by M.N.Forgy

Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak...they’re for The Elite.



ENVY BY M.N. FORGY

AN ELITE SEVEN IS LIVE!

Keep reading to grab your copy & to enter to win a $20 gift card!!! 



It was temptation that broke the sinner.

People say I have everything. 
They’re wrong. 
I may have looks, money, and privilege, but I don’t have the one thing that really matters, the one thing I crave: a woman with eyes only for me. 
I’m searching for my woman—one who will fall to her knees because I’m her king. She’ll wear the crown of my tarnished name, and long for me when I’m not near. And when I am close, she’ll be naked across my lap, feeling the sting of my palm across her milky skin. 
You could say I’m a sinner because I’d do anything to have the perfect woman—compliant to my every need and whim—and I’m envious of every couple who walks around naive to the luxury they have. 

That’s why I joined The Elite, the most prestigious brotherhood in the south. 
It’s the one place that will give me what I cannot have.
Only…the task assigned to me is too much for my jealous eyes.
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak...they’re for The Elite.
Those who envy have no peace.
My name is Sabastian Westbrook. 
I am Envy. 








The Elite Seven

7 AUTHORS.
7 STORIES.
7 DEADLY SINS.



Since 1942, The Elite Seven Society have created and guided influential leaders, molding the country into something better. This society was birthed by Malcom Benedict, II who wanted more for Americans.  More wealth.  More influence.  More power. Some leaders have the skills, but not the influence, and that simply wasn’t fair according to Mr. Benedict. He invested his own money and time to construct a society that bred the best of the best, year after year.
But to be the best, you must be ruthless.
Good leaders make sacrifices.  Sometimes the sacrifices are hard, but the rewards are plentiful.  Mr. Benedict made sure to indulge these leaders with their utmost desires.  A devout Catholic himself, he designed a society that rewarded his leaders with the sins that were frowned upon.  If they were giving up love and happiness and joy for the betterment of the country, they deserved something in its stead.
Pride, Envy, Wrath, Sloth, Greed, Gluttony, and Lust.
Choosing leaders for this society means that it takes intense focus.  Only seven are to be selected, and the investments and time are showered upon the new seven chosen every four years.  The predecessors of each group of seven choose people who fit the sin that will mold them into who they are needed to be in the future—what America needs them to be.  This is after a detailed study of many potential candidates.  The university’s acting dean behaves as a liaison for the society bringing the college applicants to the predecessors so that the selection may begin.  The society members who are going out will bring forth a candidate that the society votes on and approves.
After they are chosen, the initiates are given a token and an invitation to initiation.  The initiation will be a test to their character and ability to do what’s right for the betterment of the society.  Once the initiates pass their test, they are discreetly branded with the mark of the society, and are groomed through challenges during the course of their elite education to breed them into the influential people they were meant to be.
Once in The Elite Seven, there is no getting out. The money and power are their reward. Should they choose to stray or break the rules, the society strips them of everything.  Anything they once had will be removed.  Opportunities will never arise.  They will no longer have the support of the society.  To this day, there have been no known occurrences of anyone from the society having to be banished.  This elite group of people are what every young man and woman aspire to be a part of.  While the group is a secret society, they are whispered about amongst the privileged folks in the country.  Anyone who is anyone knows of the group and secretly hopes it’s their son or daughter who are selected, for good fortune is showered on the family for decades to come.



Lust: NOW LIVE 


I was born with wealth, athletic ability, and looks that could melt the panties off a nun.
I had a clear path to success.
Until fate dealt me a cruel blow, leaving me empty and in need of purpose.
My only focus now is to become part of The Elite—a secret society in one of the most prestigious colleges in the world.
But everything comes at a price, and with The Elite, you have to earn your place.
Lucky for me, being sinful is in my DNA.
The only obstacle to full initiation is my task: seduce the un-seducible, the forbidden, and lure her with the sins of the flesh.
Easy for a man like me…in theory.
She started as my task, but what happens when the lines between lust and love blur, and the need for power rages war with the need for her?
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak—they’re for The Elite.
This is my life, my chance, my legacy.
I am Rhett Masters.
I am Lust.

Pride: NOW LIVE 


The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.
But who said the devil was a he?
In my world, she was out to cause havoc on all our lives.
She’ll use the one thing I care most about to control me—force me into her Elite world, filled with sin, deceit, and power. And under her spell, I’ll lead a sinister brotherhood of seven at one of the most prestigious universities in New Orleans.
Seven tasks set forth by the devil herself, promising nothing less than the forbidden fruit of power. What they don’t understand is it will all end in bloodshed and regret.
They call me the alpha. The one in charge. The one with pride bigger than any task I could be given. And my pride won’t let me be anywhere but at the top of the food chain until she gives me what I truly want.
My task is Meghan Thorne.
She’s too pure for me to touch, too good for me to ruin—and the only thing standing in my way to freedom.
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak...they’re for The Elite.
As they say, pride comes before the fall.
I am Mason Blackwell.
I am Pride.




Wrath: NOW LIVE 

I’m a motherless son to a father who hates me. Fury has lived and breathed in my black heart for so long, it’s a part of my soul now. The only thing that’s ever mattered to me is protecting my twin sister, Sabella, from my father’s temper.
So when the chance to join a secret society presents itself, there’s no question I’ll do whatever it takes to become a member and earn my place in the ranks of only the most Elite.
With a taste for the deviant, I’m drawn to the darkest of desires, and no one ever leaves my bed unscathed.
My task: seduce Patience Noelle, St. Augustine’s sweetheart and the mayor’s beloved daughter—then break her heart.
Sinning is what I live for, and deviance is my passion. Failing has never been an option.
But what happens when my sin becomes my curse—when destroying the only woman I’ve ever wanted is my key to protecting my sister?
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak...they’re for The Elite.
This isn’t just my chance, it’s my legacy and reckoning.

Greed: Releasing April 8th


I was born into a world of darkness—one that never touched me when I was around my brother, Mason Blackwell. Leader of The Elite Seven. The thing about darkness, though, is it’s persistent. Eventually, it pushes itself into my life, penetrating my soul and leaving its stench latched to every vein, rooted inside every bone, and sunken into every pore. I thought I reached rock bottom when I fell in love with my brother’s best friend. My very own brand of drug with no comedown. My own nightmare I never woke from. But I was wrong. So very wrong. When I returned to New Orleans, I arrived as a shell of the girl they once knew. Put on a smile. Be the sweet innocent girl they remember.
I’m Evie Blackwell, hostage to my demons. Can the damned be saved?
I’ve done some unforgivable acts in my years, but I never asked for forgiveness. Nothing beats the feeling of wrapping my hand around someone’s throat and watching as their life bleeds down their cheeks. She was everything I should have stayed away from. The first night I saw her, I knew I was doomed—a slave to the girl with the pretty eyes and soft smile. The girl who turned out to be my best friend's baby sister. I couldn’t stay away. I had to be near her, even if it meant ruining her in the process. I wanted to wreck her, so I could piece her back together—a puzzle only I knew how to solve.
I’m Micah Dixon.
Greed.
I come for everything and get everything I come for—and I want all of her. But she’s changed, and so have I.
I’m much, much worse now…

GREED By Amo Jones

 







Gluttony: Releasing April 22nd


My life has been served to me on a gold platter to be devoured by my silver spoon.
Money, money, and more money. It’s the backbone of the Goddard name. I’m the only son, so it’s all mine for the taking.
But sometimes money isn’t enough. I always want more, yet nothing seems to satisfy me.
My father has made sure I become a part of The Elite Seven. Where most candidates are chosen, I was given my place. Everything comes at a price, though. Luckily, I can afford any price—no one has more money than God.
The Elite Seven have their initiations. My assignment is personal and beneath me: steal a car and send a warning. It’ll hurt my best friend in the process, but we both made a pact going into this. There’s no line we won’t cross.
My task makes an ugly turn and I nearly take a life. Such a small, unimportant person—someone no one would even notice was gone. She’s a problem my money and power can easily sweep under the rug.
It’s what my father wants. It’s what my brothers want. But when she finally opens those big, innocent brown eyes, I realize I’ve found what I’ve been searching for my entire life. I don’t want my little problem to disappear…I want to keep her.
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak—they’re for The Elite.
Money is my legacy, but I want something money can’t buy.
I am Baxter Samuel Goddard V.
I am Gluttony.
GLUTTONY by K. Webster

 






Sloth: Releasing May 13th


I don’t give a fuck.
Not about money or fame, beauty or power. I’ve had all those things since birth, and trust me, they’re a fucking snooze.
I don’t give a fuck about anyone, not even myself.
Until my father proves evil can exist in the most holy of places. For the first time ever, something like interest stirs in my soul.
He wants me to enroll at St. Augustine.
Join The Elite.
Court the virginal daughter of Archbishop Savoie.
Prove to him I’m worth the family name.
I’ll do it all.
And I’ll do it so well, no one will know what’s coming. People are so quick to underestimate the wicked and lazy.
They forget idle hands are the best tools for the devil’s work.
I am Rush Dempsey.
I am Sloth.

Pre Order Blitz! Fade by Ashley Munoz

FADE
AUTHOR: ASHLEY MUNOZ
RELEASE DATE: April 5, 2019
GENRE: 2ndCHANCE, CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Laney:

Jackson Tate and I are over. Done. Finished. 

Then again, how do you end something that never really started?

Now, three months later we’re being thrown back together for the sake of an investigation and forced to coexist.

I thought falling in love with someone who didn’t want to be loved was hard but going into witness protection with the man who ignorantly took my heart? Yeah, that was going to be impossible.

Jackson:

Time and distance were what I needed to forget Laney Thompson. A Jack and Jill bathroom and the bedroom next door was what I got instead. Witness protection on her family’s farm? I was skeptical too, especially with our icy reunion. But the longer I was around her the more I realized how much I needed her. 

With her, it was easy to forget.

Forget about my life and who I was, and why we needed things to fade between us in the first place. All I needed was one tragic reminder.
Amazon:

**Will be available in KU.
Born in Nebraska. Raised everywhere under the sun but grew roots in Central Oregon. Married to the shy guy from high school who grew up to be hot as hell. Four kids, three of which are little women and one little princeling. My life is full, fun, and amusing. I became a writer to fund my expensive reading habit.
