Check out the goods for K.A. Robinson’s TOXIC: Logan’s Story. I’ve got my review up for this instalment of the awesome series. Be sure to enter the giveaway too!!!

***Toxic: Logan’s Story is Book Four of the Torn Series, but
it can be read as a standalone if desired.***

True love is forever. After years of chasing his best friend, Chloe, Logan finally managed to win her heart—or so he thought. His world crashes down around him when she confesses to cheating on him with a local rock star, Drake.
Unable to let her go completely from his life, Logan reassumes his role of best friend while he watches Chloe find her happily ever after with another man. Each day, he sinks further and further into his depression, and the kind, caring Logan he once was dies. When Jade, a member of Drake’s band, inserts herself into his life, Logan never expects to fall for her. He’s too broken, too damaged.

Jade ran away from home when she was seventeen, desperate to escape her abusive stepfather and her controlling boyfriend, Mikey. The only regret she has is that she left behind her little sister, Bethaney. When Jade’s band, Breaking the Hunger, hits it big, she vows to go back to her hometown not only to reconnect with her little sister, but also to show her stepfather that she’s not worthless like he said.

The moment Jade saw Logan, she knew she wanted him. Unfortunately, he was with Chloe at the time. After his world falls apart, Jade steps in to comfort him, determined to bring back the Logan she once knew.

Sometimes, you find true love with the person you never least expect. Can Logan and Jade heal each other? Or will they forever be changed by their toxic pasts?

Toxic: Logan's Story (Torn, #4)

I love this series and I think quite possibly this instalment is my favourite!!!
Throughout the series Logan has been the best friend that had his heart torn apart by the one he loved since forever but would never have. Well in Toxic, it’s Logan’s turn to heal and mend.
I can’t pinpoint what it is about K.A. Robinson’s story telling that draws me in. Sometimes I think it’s the innocence of the story but don’t mistake that for naivety. There is a simplicity to her stories that make them sincere and real. Logan’s story really shows this. He isn’t your typical book hottie yet he is absolutely beautiful. He isn’t a tatted up alpha male but his character demands attention. Logan isn’t a pushover either, yet he is sensitive and vulnerable.
I enjoyed the fact that Robinson made this story all about Logan and Jade’s story without relying on having Chloe and Drake carry the storyline.
Being a rock story, you would think it would fall into the trap of insta-love and gratuitous sex. K.A. Robinson doesn’t use either– but the sex scenes are still hot 😉 The timeline of the story is natural and flows easily. You can see the relationships between characters build and strengthen.
There is a sweetness to K.A. Robinson’s Toxic without compromising the edginess and the sexiness of it.
Logan and jade’s journey toward love and forever was real, raw, edgy and sweet.
Love this series!!! It’s a definite one-click.

I raised an eyebrow. “Why are you so determined to make sure that Jade and I end up together?” 

       “Because I want you both to be happy, and after all of this sorted out, I think you two could be really happy with each other. You both care a lot about each other. I’ve never seen Jade act the way she did when Drake called her. She was really upset. And you’ve been Mopey McMoperpants since you came home. It’s obvious that you’re both miserable without one another.” 

      “Do you really think that we’d be happy together? Honestly, I’m not so sure. I don’t exactly fit in with the rest of her world.”   

      “Why do you think that?” 

      “She’s a rock star, Chloe, and I’m just…I’m not into that scene. I don’t like the same things you guys do. I don’t look like any of the other guys she hangs out with. I’m not pierced or tattooed. I’m not…I don’t know what the fuck I’m trying to say here.”

     Chloe started to say something, but Drake cut her off, “Look, Logan, I’ve known Jade for a long time. I’ve watched her get hit on by tons of guys, and she’s never paid attention to any of them. She didn’t care that they were part of our scene. Truthfully, most of the guys we hang out with are womanizing assholes.” 

      “True story,” Chloe cut in, giving Drake a dirty look.

     “Hey, I haven’t been that way in a long time. Don’t glare at me like that. Anyway, my point is, just because she lives a certain way and has a certain profession doesn’t mean that she’s going to want a certain type of guy. She obviously likes you, so just go with it.” 

      “He’s right. Don’t doubt yourself because you two have different lives. You’re a good-looking guy, Logan. You don’t need tattoos or piercings for girls to notice you. Jade obviously likes you just the way you are.” 

      “I feel like I should pull the car over, so we can all hug. This is getting awkward,” Drake muttered. 

      Chloe laughed. “Don’t be jealous, Drake. I think you’re a goodlooking guy, too.”

     He rolled his eyes. “Thanks. I feel much more secure about our marriage now that you’ve admitted you’re attracted to me.

What Happens Tomorrow by Elle Michaels ~New Review & Excerpt~


What Happens Tomorrow

No one knows what happens tomorrow…

When Brooke Adams suffers the unimaginable, she knows her heart will never be whole again. Faced with the choice of giving in to her grief, or fighting to regain a resemblance to the life she once knew, she chooses to fight. 

Not ready to give up, Brooke starts a new life where no one knows her past. As she slowly puts the pieces of her life back together, Brooke meets her neighbor, Tyler Reynolds. Soon, he becomes her friend, her rock…

and her complicated constant.

Despite her best efforts, she finds herself falling for him, but what will happen if Tyler learns the truth about her past and realizes just how deep the damage is?

The risk might be too much…


After dinner, we take Charlie out for a walk. I love our casual walks at night with my arms wrapped around this handsome man.

“I…uh…I have something to tell you. I’m a little nervous, so can you please hear me out without interrupting me?”

Tyler stops dead in his tracks, letting go of my waist. “All right…but why are you nervous? You know you can tell me anything, right?”

Biting my lip nervously, I nod. I wish his words calmed my nerves this time, but they don’t. “Please. Don’t interrupt, just listen. We’ve been seeing each other for a couple of months now and things have been amazing, so I wanted to tell you that I…I’m…”

Oh, damn it, Brooke. Spit it out already!

“I’m ready.”

With his signature devilish grin, he teasingly cocks his brow, trying to appear puzzled by my statement.

This is so embarrassing. Maybe I should have kept my mouth shut.

“Ready? I’m not sure I understand? What exactly is it that you’re ready for?”

Ass! He knows exactly what I mean. I elbow him in the side as my face turns fifty shades of embarrassed. “Jerk! You know exactly what I’m trying to say.”

His grin grows bigger, telling me he’s enjoying my discomfort. Reaching for me, he pulls me towards his chest. “Sweetheart, I’m sure I know exactly what you mean, but I wanna hear you say it. I want to hear the words come out of your gorgeous lips.”

He’s really gonna make me beg. “I’m ready for us to…you know…for us to…be together.” I cover my face with my hands. I’m ready to crawl under a rock now.

Pushing me back from his chest, he eyes me with such tenderness. “Can we please take this conversation home? I really don’t feel like talking about making love to my girlfriend in front of the homeless dude here,” he says, motioning to the man sleeping in the doorway of the shop we happened to stop in front of. I nod in embarrassed agreement as Tyler leans in to kiss the side of my head. “Hey, you have nothing to be embarrassed about.”

Davetta Flirty and Dirty Book Blog‘s Review

May 20, 14

When you read ‘What Happens Tomorrow’ have a box of tissue with you because you will need them. This is an emotional journey of a young woman who does not believe she deserves her own happiness. I’m glad Brooke meets people along the way that believe in her even though she hides her past but they still seem to think she is worth their friendship. Jenna her new-found BFF is a fire cracker of what a true friend is built on. When she meets her new HOT neighbor Tyler, you know sparks are gonna fly. its happens in a slow pace but so worth the wait. heartbreak is a hard thing to deal with and the way Brooke unravels her past in her own way is so brilliantly written. I loved this book because it was truly filled with characters that are all very well written and the story was full with so many different emotions. Sexy,sad,funny and so much more 🙂

Welcome to Paradise by S.L. Scott ~Spotlight Tour~


I absolutely LOVE the Welcome to Paradise series by S.L. Scott.  If you’re looking for some summer fun and romance, this is the series for you!  Check it out 🙂



I thought I was strong… But I wasn’t when it came to Evan Ashford.

The rich, cocky playboy I met within minutes of landing in Hawaii didn’t give me arrogance. He gave me his heart and his hard truths. In return, I gave him everything, including my trust. The man made me weak in the knees, but I soon learned the bad boy surfer had a reputation that preceded him and an image to uphold.

The sexual chemistry was unquestionable, our emotions irrational, but our love was undeniable. Together our pasts didn’t matter. Our different backgrounds were irrelevant. He made me feel his life wasn’t worth living without me in it. He took my breath away and saved each one of them, owning me wholly.

Evan became my life, but with all the obstacles that stood in our way, could he become my future?



Life was perfect. Paradise was found in the arms of a redeemed bad boy. Evan Ashford’s cocky side didn’t stand a chance against true love. He pursued me with an unbridled determination, a passion that couldn’t be denied, winning me over. Our lives are now set… or should have been. But nothing stays perfect forever and happiness comes with a price.

We’ve paid that price.

Sometimes we may not get the answers we seek, but we’ve learned to cherish the gifts we’ve been given. It doesn’t matter what life throws at us or takes away, we’ve found love and we will fight for what matters most—family.

Good Intentions Excerpt

She stops, and with a telling grin says, “You know, despite what you may think, I’m actually not an easy lay.”

I can’t stop the laugh. Trust me, I try. “Don’t worry. I won’t tell anyone how fast you jumped my bones.”

“Jumped your bones? I did not jump your bones. You have clearly forgotten how the events of our first date went down.”

“Well,” I say, rubbing my chin. “It wasn’t really a date from what I recall and you still ended up in my bed… under me one time…” I close my eyes remembering how fucking sexy she was that day. “… on top of me another. Oh, and I can’t forget how hot your ass looked from behind. I clearly remember three different times.”

“I thought it was two.”

“I didn’t include the pool action, so definitely three… at least, and I wore you out, Miss I’m-Not-An-Easy-La—Ouch!” I rub my arm where she knuckles me, then laugh. “You’re feisty, Miss Wray.”

“It’s one of the reasons you fell in love with me.”

“It’s one of the many reasons I fell in love with you. Your easy ways were another.”

She jerks me to a stop in the middle of the lobby. “Oh my God, Evan, you make me sound like a whore.”

Wrapping my arms around her neck, I pull her close, and whisper, “Do you regret being with me that first day?”

“No, none of it.”

“You’re not a whore.” I kiss her on the nose. “You’re not easy. We both knew there was something more between us, something different. We did what we wanted and what felt right.”

Evan and Mallory 2


5 Things with Evan and Mallory of Welcome to Paradise

Mallory: This is funny. *giggles* And kind of hard.

Evan: It’s easy. I can name way more than 5 things I love about you.

Mallory: *leans head on his shoulder* You say the sweetest things.

Evan: *coughs* Ummm…. You got nothing for me other than this will be kind of hard to name 5 things about the man you’re supposedly in love with? *pokes her in the ribs and makes her smile*

Mallory: I can name plenty, but most of those should be kept between us, if you know what I mean.

Evan: I like the way you think… and kiss and… Ow! *rubs arm* Fine. Let’s do this because I know a few other things I’d like to be doing instead.

Mallory: *Smirks* Okay, I’ll go first. I like the way you look when you sleep.

Evan: You watch me sleep?

Mallory: You watch me.

Evan: Touché. Okay, my turn. I like your ass a lot.

Mallory: Wow. You’re just kicking right in with the romantic gestures, aren’t you? *rolls eyes*

Evan: I could’ve said I don’t like your ass. *cocks eyebrow*

Mallory: True. I’ll take the ass-liking instead.

Evan: You are one dirty girl and I’ll show you how much I like your ass lat—

Mallory: My turn again. I like your forearms and the way you can see the muscles moving. You’re strong and it’s really sexy.

Evan: *waggles eyebrows* I like watching you move. You’re quiet, but confident and caring in your actions.

Mallory: Awww, that’s so sweet. So you watch me?

Evan: You watch me sleep, so all’s fair.

Mallory: Ummm… *taps chin* What can I share? What can I share? Oh, I love your back and your body. I should just say I love your body. You’re the sexiest man I’ve ever seen and the most handsome.

Evan: Well, well, well. The sexiest and most handsome *smiles all cocky* I like where this is going.

Mallory: Your turn.

Evan: I love your curves—the ones from your neck to your shoulders and the other ones from your waist to your hips. I like that you have curves. And the ones from your tits… er, I mean breasts. You have a hot body.

Mallory: What if those curves changes or whatever?

Evan: *narrows eyes in thought* I’ll love the new ones too because I love you.

Mallory: *cups his face* Thank you. Well I love that you still open the door for me.

Evan: *surprised* Why would I not?

Mallory: *shrugs* I don’t know. I guess that most guys do that more in the beginning of the relationship. Once they have you… well, most of those kinds of gestures disappear.

Evan: *shaking head* Men suck. I’m embarrassed for my gender and I’ll always open the door for you. I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to do it, so I’m not gonna squander the chance. *rubs hands together* Now back to what I love about you. There’s this way you say my name. It’s in your accent, but it’s mixed with your emotions and makes me smile… feel loved or whatever. It shows you really care about me.

Mallory: *smiles* Evan. Evan. Evan.

Evan: Yeah, that’s it. I especially like when you’re shouting it out while coming.

Mallory: I thought this list was supposed to be rated PG?

Evan: Really? Then we blew that when we first opened our mouths. Oops.

Mallory: I like your lips and the way you kiss me. It’s all passion and romance.

Evan: You took my answer. *leans forward and kisses her* I love the feel of your lips on mine and how when you kiss me, it’s like an invitation. *kisses her again*

Mallory: *kissing*

Evan: *kissing*

Mallory: *kissing*

Evan: *kissing*

Mallory: *dreamy sigh*

Evan: You’re beautiful, you know that.*strokes her hair back*

Mallory: I feel the same about you. *sits on his lap, wrapping her arms around him*

Evan: I think it’s my turn. I love your eyes—the green with gold flecks, the way you look at me like I can do no wrong, the fire in them, and your kind side. I love the way all your emotions can be read in your eyes. They’re quite stunning.

Mallory: *soft smile* Thank you. I love when you call me baby. This may sound strange and I probably shouldn’t admit this since it’s against the women’s movement, but there’s a possessiveness to it that makes me hot for you. It’s just so sexy rolling off your tongue.

Evan: I don’t even know what count we’re at, but we’re done here. *stands up holding her in his arms* I have plans for you and there’s no time like the present.

Mallory: Horny boy.

Evan: I’ll show you horny.

Mallory: Oh, I just bet you will. *giggles*

Flirty and Dirty Book Blog’s Review of Good Intentions by S.L. Scott

AMAZING SEXY HOT SIZZLIN’ SUMMER READ!!  I was completely sold the first time I saw the cover for Good Vibrations by S L Scott, is was so sexy and fun looking, I knew I had to read this book!  I knew absolutely nothing about the story (I rarely read a book’s synopsis) so I was ecstatic when Good Vibrations turned out to be everything I hoped it would be and more :-)  Right from the first few pages, Good Vibrations had my complete and uninterrupted attention!   No slow start to this story, no sir-eeeeee, it gets right into the good stuff and I wanted more!  Definitely the fun and sexy, with the perfect amount of angst, summer read I was hoping for :-)

Mallory needs an escape so she heads to Hawaii to stay with her best friend Sunny.  Hoping to clear her head over the summer, fate has other plans for Mallory’s summer when it puts a handsome stranger immediately in her path,  but that’s the last thing on her mind (or so she tries to convince herself).  Love Mallory, she made me remember what it was like to be young and falling in love, the good parts and the bad parts.   Evan is tired of his bad boy reputation.  He wants more out of his life but he’s just not sure how to obtain it.  Then he sees her!  Right from the beginning there was something about Evan’s character that kept me wanting more.  And no it wasn’t the fact that his is every woman’s holiday fantasy!  There was something about him that I couldn’t stop thinking about.   Noah is a hot local who is completely smitten with Mallory but I never felt right about him.  Something about him didn’t sit right for me.  Who will win her heart??  All of the characters are fabulous, the good and the bad characters.  

Good Vibrations is exactly the sexy summer adventure that I would have wanted when I was young and carefree.  This fabulous story 

is the perfect sizzling, sexy read you are looking for this summer!  And the ending…. OH EM GEEE!!!  Seriously I nearly messaged S L Scott at 3am to freak out!!!  I will say no more though as I don’t want to spoil it for anyone. 

 I really can’t stress how much I loved Good Vibrations!  Hot story, fab characters!  You won’t want to put down!!!  Make sure to have somewhere to cool off this summer while you read Good Vibrations, I can promise you’ll get hot!  Nic 5/5

Flirty and Dirty Book Blog’s Review of Good Intentions by S.L. Scott

I absolutely loved Good Vibrations by S.L. Scott and couldn’t wait for the release of Good Intentions. S.L. Scott did not disappoint with the continuation of Mallory and Evan’s story. I found Good Intentions to be a quick read. There was plenty of story to keep my attention focused :-) Not as angst filled as Good Vibrations was, I found Good Intentions to be just as sexy and hot! S.L. Scott sure knows how to write some sexy hotness :-) As far as sequels go I loved Good Intentions, the characters I loved and hated were just as fab as they were in Good Vibrations. The storyline had a great flow that kept me wanting to turn the pages. I loved where S.L. Scott took the Mallory/Evan/Noah storyline, LOVED IT! I’m also excited that there will be a book 3 in this series, YAY!

If you loved Good Vibrations you won’t want to miss out on Good Intentions!  Nic 4/5

Flirty and Dirty Book Blog’s Review of Good Sensations by S.L. Scott

I’m sad to have finished reading the final instalment in the Welcome to Paradise series by S.L. Scott, Good Sensations, because it means that I’ve finished this fab series. Good Sensations was the perfect way to end Evan and Mallory’s story. *inserts gush* Just like the rest of the books in this series, Good Sensations was everything I had hoped for and so much more. I jumped right back in as if I was hanging out with old friends again.

It’s been great watching the characters in this story grow and evolve and I promise some of the character transformations will blow your mind, who knew! Can’t wait for you to meet some of the new character. Clay Wray…Bahahahaha! Love it! Evan is still one of my favourite dreamy swoon worthy book boyfriends and I think I fell for him even more this time around. *inserts sigh*

I have loved this entire series but Good Sensations is my favourite. S.L. Scott kept me on my toes as there were a few situations I wasn’t sure whether she was going to mess with my head or not. Without giving spoilers away, I will say that Good Sensations had my heart feeling very full while reading it. Not heavy and angst filled, it was light and easy read full of sexiness, romance and fun. Just the read I was looking for to pull me from my funk. Thank you S.L. Scott for this amazing end to an amazing series.  Nic 5/5

~Cut Too Deep Book Trailer~




Dear Ms. Walker,
I know exactly who you are. You’re the beautiful and intriguing young woman who shakes like a leaf when I get near you, but watches me with heated intensity every morning when I arrive to work as though you would like to undress me.

I’m pleased to learn the little voice in your head won out and you decided to mail your letter. Perhaps with distance between us, I won’t intimidate you, and we can get to know each other properly. I would very much like to know more about you.

I am receiving many letters, but let me put your mind at ease. I’m not opening any of them. I’m not interested in words from strangers that are obviously looking for ten tiny minutes of fame. Yours, however, spiked my curiosity. I wasn’t sure if it was the same Hadley Walker that brightens my mornings until I smelled the delicate perfume on the outside of the envelope, and knew with certainty it was you.

You would like to know what I miss the most about home. I’m a man. Your answer, Ms. Walker, is sex. I’m accustomed to having a woman in my bed. There are no women here, and it’s lonely. Would you be willing to keep me company? Fucking through words can be very erotic. Chances are, you squirmed in your seat, shocked by what I’ve written. Your panties are wet, and you’re reading the above sentence over again. Perhaps you’re cursing me, but it won’t stop you from reading on. You said you’re drawn to me, and I am rather enamored with you as well. There is nothing for you to be “curious” about. It’s purely sexual attraction that draws you to me and me to you. I’ve wanted to have you since the first time I saw you watching me. The other morning when your big doe eyes peered up at me, and you knew I’d caught you, I wanted to drag you into the elevator and fuck you until you screamed my name so loud, the entire building heard you. I’ve thought about nothing else since. I saw in your eyes that you wanted me to make you come right there in the building lobby. I’m hard thinking about it.

What do you say, Ms. Walker, would you care to have letter sex with me? When I’m free of this shit hole, I promise to deliver the real thing, and then you can determine if I’m still mesmerizing.

Cut Too DeepCut Too Deep by K.J. Bell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5++++ INCREDIBLE Stars! And yes, I’m using shouty capitals!!! I promise this is one read you won’t want to miss out on!

I was lucky enough to read this book in its early stages and instantly fell in love with its original storyline and brilliant characters. KJ Bell’s writing has amazing flow and I was sucked in from the get go, I needed to know where the story was going. I thoroughly enjoyed the fact that Ms. Bell surprised me at every single turn, I had no idea what she was going to hit me with next.

I adore the characters KJ Bell creates and the characters in Cut Too Deep is no exception. So many incredible characters, I felt like I knew them all. Hadley is beautifully written, so damaged yet so full of inner strength. I loved watching her grow. Miller Genetti *swoon* is the perfect amount of sexy strong alpha male mixed with loving tenderness. Gavin Blake and Ethan Blackstone make way for the new man in town because you gents have some competition! Mac, every girl needs a best friend like Mac, someone to take you dancing 😉 I want a Mac! Then there’s La Familgia, FABULOUS! I want more of this family. The way they care for their own, the hilarious banter… Again I say, FABULOUS!

Cut Too Deep took me on a crazy emotional journey that, at times, had my heart tearing in two. Learning Hadley’s story and all she endured was positively heartbreaking. Watching her try to move forward from her past had me cheering for her. Miller is dealing with his own battle, one of the many reasons I love this honourable man. There were so many twists and turns that I did not see coming. Ms. Bell kept me on the edge of my seat, alway engaged with the story and it’s characters.

Packed full of heartache, mystery and suspense. Cut Too Deep has a healthy dose of angst and lots of HOT sexual tension! It’s a beautiful story about survival and love. If you are looking for a story that will take you on a fabulous emotional ride without leaving you emotionally wrecked, a story that will grab hold of your heart and won’t let go. Cut Too Deep is just what you are looking for in your next read.  Nic


Shattered PromisesShattered Promises by J.R. Grant

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Shattered Promises was a heartwarming story of second chance love. This was J.R Grant’s debut story and she did a fantastic job of making Shattered promises sincere and true to the heart. I always enjoy a love story that spans a lifetime of changes and adversities but somehow manages to never waiver even when those involved don’t always see it.
JR Grant did a good job of creating characters with viability and believability. There were times however, that I felt Parker was too soft and really should have found his balls to speak up or quit pining. Just my opinion though. And again my opinion only but that parts of the story were too drawn out or repetitive. I would have liked to see more of the ‘relationship’ between Lani and Kade in action rather than in thought or exposition. I think it would have made more impact on me as a reader to ‘see’ it rather than to have to just know it was there and that it happened.
I know many people will think that Lani wasn’t a strong enough woman but unless you walk a mile in a woman’s shoes that has been in that sort of a relationship, you have no idea and can pass no judgment. Emotions and your heart don’t always have a solid connection to the brain. Just sayin’. So at times when Lani appears weak, it sometimes takes greater strength to find the resolve and the fortitude within yourself.
Overall this was a story that tugs at your heartstrings and root for the underdog. There could have been more emotion ‘shown’ through character action rather than character exposition. But overall a good read. I look forward to seeing more from JR Grant.

Raven Wood spends her days at Florence’s Uffizi Gallery restoring fine works of Renaissance art. But an innocent walk home after an evening with friends changes her life forever. When she intervenes in the senseless beating of a homeless man, his attackers turn on her, dragging her into an alley. Raven is only semi-conscious when their assault is interrupted by a cacophony of growls followed by her attacker’s screams. Mercifully, she blacks out, but not before catching a glimpse of a shadowy figure who whispers to her…
Cassita vulneratus.
When Raven awakes, she is inexplicably changed. She returns to the Uffizi, but no one recognizes her and more disturbingly, she discovers that she’s been absent an entire week. With no recollection of the events leading up to her disappearance, Raven also learns that her absence coincides with one of the largest robberies in Uffizi history – the theft of a set of priceless Botticelli illustrations. When the baffled police force identifies her as its prime suspect, Raven is desperate to clear her name. She seeks out one of Florence’s wealthiest and elusive men in an attempt to uncover the truth about her disappearance. Their encounter leads Raven to a dark underworld whose inhabitants kill to keep their secrets…

About the Author
I’m interested in the way literature can help us explore aspects of the human condition – particularly suffering, sex, love, faith, and redemption. My favourite stories are those in which a character takes a journey, either a physical journey to a new and exciting place, or a personal journey in which he or she learns something about himself/herself.
I’m also interested in how aesthetic elements such as art, architecture, and music can be used to tell a story or to illuminate the traits of a particular character. In my writing, I combine all of these elements with the themes of redemption, forgiveness, and the transformative power of goodness.
I try to use my platform as an author to raise awareness about the following charities: Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation, WorldVision, Alex’s Lemonade Stand, and Covenant House. For more information, see my Twitter account.

“Oh no, you didn’t!” I say, smearing mud on the side of his face.

“I did!” His voice is deep and it is anything but playful. It’s filled with heat and desire.

I am secretly reveling in the fact that even though I’m covered in mud he finds me sexy. He is laying on top of me and I can feel his hard body pressed against mine.

“Hi.” I say as I bite the bottom of my lip, slowly dragging my teeth over the front.

“Hi.” A smile and a softness in his eyes welcome me as his lips descend again. His tongue circles mine and a warmth spreads through my body, clearly leaving a blush on my cheeks.

The kiss deepens and I bring my hand up to the back of his head. Mud covers his hair, thick gobs fall onto my face and we kiss even harder. I attempt to lift my knees and part my legs even though the heavy mud is making it difficult. I press my body into him as much as I can, moaning into the kiss because the pleasure from just the kiss alone is enough to send me over the edge. He slows the kiss and pulls away.

“Woman, the things you do to me.”

“Me? You know how turned on you have me?”

“I want nothing more than to take you. You got me so fucking worked up watching you have fun all day like this and then here in the mud. But I’m not taking you for the first time knee deep in the mud.”

Okay, I guess I see his point there.

“When I take you, and I will take you, it’s going to be in a bed, where I can worship you.” He kisses my ear. “Taste you.” His hand caresses my breast. “And claim every inch of that sweet pussy.”

TRANSLUCENT by Erin Noelle ~ Cover Reveal

One of our favourite authors has a new book coming June 22nd!!! This is looking intense and oh so good. TRANSLUCENT by Erin Noelle

Releasing June 22, 2014
Sometimes you reach a point where you just can’t take any more – a breaking point some call it. The day I watched my husband murder the woman who was pregnant with his child, my point didn’t just break, it exploded like a magazine firing through the barrel of a fully-automatic AK-47. Literally. I am no longer his American Princess, nor am I his slave. Now, I’m a murderer in hiding. My name was Bryleigh Carter Oliveira and that was my story.
Translucent is one woman’s story of breaking free, starting over, and learning to trust again through willful submission.
Meet Madden Decker…
Immediately, she hangs her head to hide the tears and crosses her arms across her chest to cover her boobs. “I’m sorry for this,” she croaks in between her sobs. “I just want to go home.”
Rushing to her side, I’m hesitant to touch her, not wanting to inflict any additional pain. I lift her chin gently, forcing her to look up at me. “Don’t apologize, sweet girl,” I whisper soothingly. “Let’s get you cleaned up, and then we can talk about it. I didn’t mean to snap at you.” Tenderly, I kiss each of her tear-stained cheeks before leading her by the hand over to the shower.
“The spray of the shower will sting too badly. It’s better to clean them with a washcloth and then alcohol,” she reasons, obviously having done this before. “I can take care of it, Madden.
I stop mid-stride and turn to her, knowing damn well my eyes are full of pity – I can’t help it. “Okay, but please let me help you.”
With a slight nod of her head, I open the linen closet, pull out a couple of cloths, and guide her back to the sink. Wetting the first washcloth, I drop to my knees in front of her, putting me eyelevel with the lacerations. She keeps her arms tightly wrapped over her chest as I go to work, carefully cleaning up the red streaks from her bony rib cage and concave stomach which I notice aren’t all fresh, thus confirming this is a common occurrence. I bite my tongue to not comment on her frailness, but I don’t want to tear her down any more than she already is at the moment. Instead, I make a mental note to feed her every chance I get.
After nearly fifteen silent minutes, all of the blood is wiped away and I grab the bottle of rubbing alcohol from the medicine cabinet. Returning to my kneeling position, I peer up at her, making sure she’s ready for the burning sensation I know is about to come. Her eyes are closed tightly and she’s chewing nervously on her bottom lip. Her helplessness and fragility affect me in the most profound way. I want – no scratch that – I need to fix her like I need to take my next breath, and I have no fucking clue why. It scares me shitless.

BANG (Black Lotus Series #1) by E.K. Blair~ Review

Hey crew,

I am absolutely blown away by E.K. Blair’s psychosexual thriller. You have never been on a ride more thrilling and unpredictable. You won’t know what hit you when you get done. BANG!


They say when you take revenge against another you lose a part of your innocence.
But I’m not innocent.
I haven’t been for a very long time.
My innocence was stolen from me. Taken was the life I was supposed to have. The soul I was born with. The ruby heart embedded in a life full of hopes and dreams.


I never even had a choice.
I mourn that life. Mourn the what-ifs.
Until now.
I’m ready to take back what was always meant to be mine.

But every plan has a fatal flaw. Sometimes it’s the heart.

**Due to the dark and explicit nature of this book, it is recommended for mature audiences only as some scenes may be particularly disturbing.**

Check out my review…

Bang (Black Lotus, #1)Bang by E.K. Blair

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sometimes LOVE is crazy and sometimes love IS crazy!

Love is ugly and will make you ugly. Love is sinister and makes you sinister. Love is evil and love will make the evil seep between its creases leaving you to bleed.

E.K. Blair’s Bang is all of that. This is undoubtedly one of my favorite books to date. I don’t know what twisted, sick depths she dug down to find this story within her but it is absolutely brilliant. Absolutely incredible!
Even if I were to give spoilers, which I WILL NOT do, you cannot begin to even foster an idea of how amazing this story is.
The plot twists (and there were a few kicks to my gut) and character deviations were beyond one layer or one answer. Every time I thought I figured something out, the game changed. And what a wicked, vile game you are brought into from the first chapters.
The characters were beyond what my words can even articulate. My skin crawls and it fires up with thoughts of their sociopathic beauty. With each turn of the page you can go from loving them to hating them to being indifferent. Reading about these people who were scared, vulnerable, toxic, evil, sexy, beautiful, and successful, was like indulging in a rare and expensive vintage wine while eating a grilled cheese sandwich—perfectly paired in taste but socially unacceptable.
The descriptions will blow your mind and all your expectations.
I have to give accolades to E.K. Blair for stepping way outside the box and creating this story. This girl took risks I have yet to see any author indie or traditionally published take. She found a way to fit a square peg into a round hole.
Bang is sexy, lustful, and deceitful. It is driven, it is fast, and it is calculated. If I could give Bang more than 5 stars I would.
D 5+/5 Wickedly delicious.
