The Reckoning By S.L. Scott ~New Review~

the reckoning cover

When I was first introduced to Dalton & Holliday in The Resistance, I fell hard for their love story. It was this crazy story of a one night stand that should have never played out.  But where is the fun in playing it safe and not going after what you want. Dalton is one HOT rock star with an ego big enough to fill a stadium. He goes after Holliday because if there is  anybody that can handle him, its her.

This story takes off after they are married and life starts to settle in for them. It’s hard being a successful business woman with a passion to go all the way and your husband is a Hot rock god. They seem to fall into all pitfalls of the limelight. Holliday is one strong woman who will not back down from doing what she wants to do with her life. And when that happens when her husband is on the road all the time, it could lead to a whole lot of space for somebody else to try and come into her world and mess things up.

Dalton has is own problems that he really does not see coming because he is busy just trying to move on from losing his best friend and a new marriage. So you have two people madly in love, but how do you manage all these outside problems…….it can get really messy when you start to second guess that love where it all started from.

 It turns into a battle of egos and not trusting what their relationship was build on.

When they find their way on the same path and understanding each other, they come into a force that nobody can come between the bond that made so strong.

This is a story of passion and lust but turns very real with true love and what really matters in life. Family. This story was so well written because it shows what can go wrong when you don’t communicate. You can get lost in your own head and waste so much time that you will never get back.

This was a 5 star read for me because it was a wonderful HEA. I love it !!!!!!! Davetta

The Reckoning (Hard to Resist #2)

S.L. Scott

Blurb

Jack Dalton was charismatic.

Johnny Outlaw was irresistible.

Two sides of the same man, passionate about two things—music and Holliday Hughes. With her intoxicating mix of strength and vulnerability, confidence and sex appeal, he couldn’t get enough of her.

Together, love was a storm of chaos and calm. When fame became a force to be reckoned with, could their love hold them together or would their notoriety tear them apart?

“This isn’t how our melody goes. This isn’t how we were supposed to play out.”

slscottAbout the Author

New York Times and USA Bestselling Author, S. L. Scott, was always interested in the arts. She grew up painting, writing poetry and short stories, and wiling her days away lost in a good book and the movies.

With a degree in Journalism, she continued her love of the written word by reading American authors like Salinger and Fitzgerald. She was intrigued by their flawed characters living in picture perfect worlds, but could still debate that the worlds those characters lived in were actually the flawed ones. This dynamic of leaving the reader invested in the words, inspired Scott to start writing with emotion while interjecting an underlying passion into her own stories.

Living in the capital of Texas with her family, Scott loves traveling and avocados, beaches, and cooking with her kids. She’s obsessed with epic romances and loves a good plot twist. She dreams of seeing one of her own books made into a movie one day as well as returning to Europe. Her favorite color is blue, but she likens it more toward the sky than the emotion. Her home is filled with the welcoming symbol of the pineapple and finds surfing a challenge though she likes to think she’s a pro.

Have you heard the news…. Niall Leonard is writing the screenplay for Fifty Shades Darker

niall_leonard_portrait1a

This is BRILLIANT news!  The fabulously talented husband of our Queen, E.L. James, has been named screenplay writer for Fifty Shades Darker!!!  IT’S REALLY HAPPENING <3

http://variety.com/2015/film/news/fifty-shades-sequel-to-be-written-by-e-l-james-husband-1201477673/

niall_leonard_portrait2.png

Niall Leonard grew up in Newry, Northern Ireland. In 1977 he attended the University of York to study English, and from there went on to The UK National Film and Television School where he trained as a screenwriter and director.  His first film was Absolution, an old-fashioned revenge thriller with a supernatural twist, filmed on location in Newry in 1983 and starring Derek Halligan.  Niall returned to Newry In 1985 to shoot locations for his graduation movie, the black comedy No Man’s Land, starring Patrick Bergin and Des McAleer.

After graduating from the NFTS in 1986 Niall’s first broadcast work as director was the comedy series Phil and Arthur Go Off for Channel Four, followed by stints on ITV’s long-running cop show The Bill. Meanwhile Niall pursued his own projects, writing and directing the one-off black comedy Rotten Apples starring BJ Hoggand Ian McElhinney, and developing Over The Wild Frontier, a six-part comedy drama set on the Irish border, for Channel Four. Rotten Apples was revived for a short run on the Manchester Festival Fringe in 2013 and played to sold-out houses.

Niall’s first TV script to be broadcast on the network was an episode of Jimmy Nail’s cop show Spender, closely followed by Pie In The Sky with Richard Griffiths.

In 1994 Niall took up a year-long contract as a Script Editor at BBC Northern Ireland, where he got to work with his long-time hero Graham Reid on Life After Life and made the acquaintance of Belfast’s Hole In The Wall Gang. His work as script associate on their pilot for Give My Head Peace led to a partnership that continued for ten years, with Niall contributing to every episode of the immensely successful satirical sitcom and its spinoff stage productions.

In 1995 he returned to full-time writing with a script for the groundbreaking Irish comedy drama Ballykissangel and went on to create episodes of Silent Witness, Hornblower, Sea of Souls, Second Sight, and Holby City. Niall adapted the Minette Walters thriller The Dark Room for BBC1, and wrote numerous episodes over several series of Monarch of The Glen, Wire In The Blood and Wild At Heart.

in 2010 Niall completed screenplays for two big-budget feature-length thrillers for US cable TV, loosely adapted from novels by Alastair Maclean. Air Force One is Down and Puppet On A Chain.

As part of the 2011 Nanowrimo novel-writing event Niall wroteCrusher, a gritty crime thriller set in London featuring Finn Maguire, a dyslexic young offender investigating the murder of his father.  The novel was picked up by Random House for publication in September 2012, it was nominated for several Best First Novel awards, most recently by the Edinburgh International Book Festival, and its sequels Incinerator and Shredder will be published in 2014. 

Niall has led seminars and workshops on screenwriting and script editing for the BBC, the Northern Ireland Film Council and the Irish Screenwriters’ Guild, and lectured on the creative process at the University of Reading.

He is married with two kids and a rather smelly dog and lives in West London.

This is an absolutely fabulous cause. Even if you are unable to participate in this event, helping to spread the word would be greatly appreciated!

~~~~~~~~~
Piper is a 3-year-old little firecracker! She is an energetic, happy little girl, who will steal your heart, but she is non-verbal and needs your help for assistance and awareness of Autism.

Piper also has tonic clonic seizures (formerly known as grand-mal). Every seizure is terrifying but hers are especially alarming because they cause her to stop breathing.

Hundreds of today’s bestselling authors have joined together to assist in raising funds to obtain a trained service dog for Piper, which can relay to her family what Piper cannot: seizure alert, tracking should she wander, and behavior disruption. Together with the non-profit “4 Paws for Ability” organization, we have committed to raise funds to match Piper with a service dog specifically trained for her.

It is also our pledge that ALL monies raised over the amount needed for Piper’s dog will be donated in her name to help others defray costs obtaining a service dog.

On behalf of Piper, her family, and the hundreds of authors, bloggers, and readers rallying together for this cause – THANK YOU!

Beauty’s Kingdom by A.N. Roquelaure (Anne Rice) ~NEW REVIEW~

Cover.hi-res.BEAUTY'S KINGDOM
Beauty’s Kingdom by A.N. Roquelaure

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

If you are a fan of the Beauty series by A.N. Roquelaure (Anne Rice), I don’t think you will be disappointed in Beauty’s Kingdom. It wasn’t exactly my cup of tea but I definitely couldn’t stop reading it…It more than piqued my interest. The detail and thought that went into creating this story is amazing!

I had no idea what to expect when I started Beauty’s Kingdom, no idea how complex the story or characters would be. I also had no idea how dirty it would be! WOW! Make sure you have a fan around while you read this one! I applaud A.N. Roquelaure, she has one incredible imagination.

There were a few reasons Beauty’s Kingdom wasn’t for me. First, I had a hard time following all of the characters in the story, there were just too many for me to keep track of. Second, there was too much sex in it for my liking. *insert gasps* I’m not a prude by any means but for me there is such a thing as too much sex in books. This doesn’t mean that someone else definitely won’t enjoy it.

If you are looking for a H.O.T., well written story, and love fantasy reads…you won’t be disappointed in Beauty’s Kingdom.  Nic

Finding Home by Aine Kelley ~New Review~

Finding Home by Aine Kelley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you’re looking for a sweet yet sexy, heartfelt read, don’t miss out on Finding Home by Aine Kelley. With a sweet storyline and loveable characters, Ben and Sam’s story is sure to work its way into your heart.

What I really enjoyed about this book was that it was a quick read with lots of emotion. Finding Home isn’t the kind of story that will leave you emotionally spent, it’s the kind of story that will leave your heart feeling full and happy. Think John Hughes’ movies happy 🙂

Finding Home is the perfect flirty and dirty story — beautiful and emotional, schmexy and pulse racing. Aine Kelly did a fabulous job with her debut and I look forward to reading Jack and Jenny’s story.  Nic
