BLURB

Zeb—
Family and tradition.
That’s my life.
But now, it’s all going to shit. My baby brother brings home big-city trouble. My sister brings home a big-city firebrand IN big trouble, who turns my world upside down and inside out.
She makes me wish for things I can’t have, but I’ll be damned if I give anybody the power to hurt me like that again.
Besides, I have to focus. Keep the family and tradition alive.
Trouble is, I can’t get away from her scent. The sound of her voice. What the thought of her does to me.

Gabriella—
When a nightmare comes to my life, my best friend rescues me and takes me home to her old-fashioned family.
It’s like stepping into a different world, but her older brother almost makes it better. Then he turns into an arrogant ass of a caveman.
If I didn’t desperately need the help, I would leave.
No, I would not miss the infuriating things Zeb says and does.
Not one bit.
Even if he is hot, in a primitive sort of way.
He confuses me, going from concerned and sweet, to hot, to cold as ice.
I can’t get involved anyway—not with the wounds of the last time literally still healing—and he’s busy trying to hold onto a dying way of life.

Review

Oh, I absolutely loved this book by this fantastic author! I particularly like how he changes up his writing so each book is so different…I think might be my favourite so far!

Zeb and his brothers and sister live in a remote mountain area farming and generally sticking to old fashion methods and morals. Gabriella is a nurse in an extremely busy ER, her fiancé, Carlos, has always treated her well, however, is very suspicious of the extra shifts she is doing at the hospital. Getting away for a bit and going to her best friend’s place (Zeb’s sister) she has time to sort through some things and learn a different lifestyle. Things heat up when unwanted visitors come along and the tension is strong.

Oh, I just adored Zeb, Zack, Zeke & Zipporah, such fabulous characters. Gabriella is also so easy to like and care for straight away. Zangle is the youngest in the family and I have to admit a right royal pain..but Zeb sorts him out…oh and Granny Zip…what a hoot! I couldn’t get enough of these characters. I’m really hoping there will be more books to come with the Z gang!

Terrific descriptions of the characters and their upbringing and lifestyle really build a vivid picture plus the great descriptions of the scenery…I was really hoping the billy goat made another appearance at the end! 😂

A fast-paced story that is super easy to read, it does take you on the emotional roller coaster but it also makes you feel a part of the story.

Excerpt

“Let me help.” Startled, she stiffened, then let her arms go around my neck. “I’m Zeb, by the way.” Her unruly hair tickled my neck and chest, reminding me I hadn’t bothered with a shirt.

“Gabriella. I’m okay to walk.”

“And I’m okay to carry you.”

Robyn’s Review of Author May I by Aden Lowe

by Aden Lowe
Genres: Romance
Title: Author, May I?
Author: Aden Lowe
Genre: Romance
Cover Design: Ashley Wheels
Release Date: August 29, 2017 

 


 

I’m an author. You know, the kind no one ever sees. I never leave my home in the woods. You’ll never know who I really am.
When a dickhead cover model steps over the line with my assistant, I have no choice. I always protect what’s mine, no matter what lines it crosses.
So, I cross the biggest line of them all.
I bring Johnny Quick to life.
He’s the ultimate bad boy.
He’ll stick a knife in your ribs, fuck your wife, and blow your wad at the track, all in the same day.
Every woman wants him. Nothing can touch him. Not even the law. He’s unstoppable.
And he’s fiction.
Johnny’s the star of my bestselling Romance series. Now I need him to do a real job. That’s where it all goes to hell.
Fiction collides with reality…
*Based on real experiences with the book world.
**This is a stand alone story, built around depictions of true accounts of happenings within the Indie Author community. It contains violence, crude language, sexual situations, a few cliches, and some stereotypes thrown in for good measure.***

 


Using a line from the book..”How does a fictional character step out into the real world?” …sums up the idea behind the story. Johnny Quick is a well known character story in books written by ‘The Author’, an anonymous author. Johnny is a hunky villain who works for the Dixie Mob, in his usual books but this time he attends an author book signing, following The Author’s instructions.

This really is out there and quite brilliant in its originality. I’m not going to lie I did find it a bit hard to get my head around the concept of a fictional character coming to life. It works and let me just recommend you read to the very end! 😉

Terrific insight into the book world and author signing events and although I have only ever encountered friendly, fun people I am sure there are some grey elements like there are at any event or gathering. The honesty was refreshing!

Great expressions like this..
…’usually seemed a lot like diamond mining with a tooth pick.’
…are littered throughout the story and they are not only very fitting but also fun.
A huge change in direction for this author with this book but as they say ‘A change is as good as a holiday!’

Reviewed by Robyn

Soft fingers trailed over my arm and down to my hand, where her fingers laced into mine, and held my full attention. “Let’s go, baby.”

Shocked, I didn’t resist in the slightest, and followed her right on out of the bar, all thoughts of the waitress gone. Who the fuck knew why a gorgeous chick like her would grab a perfect stranger and lead him out of the bar like that, but hell, I wasn’t fighting it. “You know, sugar, all you had to do was ask.”

She led me into the elevator and waited for the door to close.

In the
darkness is where I first met him.
Alone at a
water fountain, tears rolling down my cheeks.
Ready to
give up.
From the
shadows, his voice came to me.
Soothing.
Comforting. Rough as the blackest night.
I didn’t
see him.
I didn’t
even know his name.
All I knew
was he saved me that night.
He put my
back on my feet.
And he kept
me on them.
Every
single time I needed him, he found a way to come to me.
My stranger
of the night.
My dark
warrior.
My name is
Scarlett. You probably know me.
I’m
America’s number one country music star.
I’m also
the loneliest girl you’ll ever meet.
He’s as
free as a bird. A nomad. Travelling alone.
Nobody to
hold him back.
He holds
the freedom I pray for every single day.
He shows me
that life can be so much more than what I’m living.
When danger
comes knocking, he’ll also show me a different world.
A world I
never knew existed.
A world
that both terrifies and fascinates me.
A world
that goes against everything I’ve ever known.
A world of
Iron Fury.

A stranger online. Dark hair and even darker eyes that knew my dirty desires before I did. 
A fantasy that should never be spoken. But he pulled the confession from me. 
And now he’s coming for me.
Rough. Dirty. Dangerous.
It’s supposed to be one night to get me off and make me forget.
He’ll make me his and I’ll pretend I don’t want him to.
I’ll run and he’ll chase. 
Because I asked him for this.
I begged him for this.
Tonight, in the darkness, he’s the hunter.
And I’m the bait.
 
 
 
 
 
 

Dark, dangerous and raw… absolutely fantastic book! Watch out for what you wish for… as that monster may just come to life and then you’re running for your life! This was totally different from anything else I have read, I was totally captivated and intrigued from the start and was not disappointed at all. The characters were so dark and twisted.. each of them had their demons to fight, but the more time they spent with each other the light started coming into their lives… but there was still a monster lurking and both of them were the bait.

Reviewed by Nat

Where do I begin with this book, I will start by saying the book is brilliantly written and the first 30% of this book had me hooked. I couldn’t put it down but then I don’t know what happened it just started fall flat for me. There want enough going on really to hold me captivated. I carried on reading the book and although I liked the story and the characters, there was just something missing for me.

I would still recommend this books as everyone is completely different and although I was left wanting, someone else will absolutely love it, I am sure.

Jade has increasingly less to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s happy with this fact. 

Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted. 
Jade is as dirty as you’d expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile. 
She lives in the Herefordshire countryside with a couple of hounds and a guy who’s able to cope with her inherent weirdness. 

 

She has a red living room, decorated with far more zebra print than most people could bear and fights a constant battle with her addiction to Coca-Cola.

 

 

Day 31 by Kane Caldwell

Title: Day 31
Author: Kane Caldwell
Genre: Erotic Romance Standalone
Release Date: June 10, 2017
Everything I’d planned on giving up was taken from me in an instant.
I felt responsible.
I tried moving on. Looking for light on my darkest days. But I just couldn’t handle the demons inside. Out of despair, I tried ending my life. But just like protecting what was mine, I failed.
I was sent to the mental ward.
Sixty days.
Thirty-one days in, they put me in a new visiting program.
I didn’t think anyone could reach me.
Then her sweet fucking gaze hit me.

*~*~*
My life revolved around one thing, the church.
That’d been until I found countless shady documents the deeper I dug into my father’s office. When I got to the end of the rope and my questions hadn’t been answered, I took the next step.
I signed up for the visiting program, one prayer was answered when I was assigned to him.
I had Thirty days with him to find the answers I’d been looking for.
But nothing went as I’d planned when his powerful gaze hit me.

I’m Kane Caldwell, a romance author. Writing started years ago as a hobby but quickly turned into a passion. I am the epitome of a country boy with my jeans, t-shirt, hat (No, not a cowboy hat. Lol), scruffy face, and work boots on, driving my truck and definitely not a guy you’d picture writing erotic romance. I’m in my mid-forties but my mind tells me differently along with keeping up with my two awesome teenage boys. I live in the south where the weather is warm but most times sweltering hot. When I have down time, I love to be surrounded by family, friends, great food, or engrossed in a good book. And of course, putting my erotic imagination to work, bringing you stories of love, lust and everything in between.

Maddie
Love shouldn’t hurt. 
Love should make your heart soar – not break it apart 
Love should make you feel safe – not broken and vulnerable. 
I don’t want to feel like this anymore. 
 
Marcus
Anger shouldn’t be all-consuming. 
Anger at her for leaving me 
Anger at her for showing for me that life could be more – and making me crave it. 
I don’t want to feel like this anymore. 
 
Two damaged people, free-falling through life. 
Two friends. Two choices. Two questions. 
If you’re unable to save yourself, can you really help anyone else? 
Can happy-ever-afters exist if you no longer believe in fairy tales?
 
 
 
 
Friends told me how sorry they were – but it wasn’t their fault. They told meI needed to move on – as if it were that fucking easy, and I could just

pick up and carry on. They apologised for my loss – as if I’d

misplaced an item of value, instead of the person that had helped

hold me together, all the broken, messed-up pieces of me…It

devalued her and everything that we had, and I hated that they could

make such stupid, thoughtless and ridiculous statements. I knew

they cared and I knew they were concerned, but it took all my

willpower not to punch them and tell them to fuck off and leave me

alone. I couldn’t give them what they wanted from me. I didn’t want

to talk. I didn’t want to feel…

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
4-star
OMG! This book was brilliant and powerful and I loved it.  This book is a bit darker than the first two books. It’s about fighting your demons and problems, it’s about trying not to break completely and hope you survive to obtain your happy.

I can’t really say much about this book without spoiling it. Just know I loved Maddie and Marcus and I loved their story and how they cope whilst they fight their problems. GL Chapple is awesome and I recommend this series so much.

Madison Montgomery comes from money and power, but when someone close to her commits the ultimate crime, Madison must live with her tainted name for the rest of her life.When she begins Riverside Preparatory Academy, the private school her father has swept her into in The Hamptons, she hopes for a fresh start.What she wasn’t hoping for was the pack of bad boys who run the school; ten, to be exact. When Madison gains the attention of their leader, Bishop Vincent Hayes, a whole new world that she didn’t think existed is exposed to her. A whole world that starts and ends with The Elite Kings Club and these boys, are about to flip her world upside down.

Secrets are overflowing and family lies are about to be exposed. Is there more to Madison Montgomery than even she knows?

Excerpt
“Nate?” I whisper. “Maybe I took a wrong turn.”
Silence.
“Nate!” I yell down the phone. “This isn’t funny.”
“I’m not laughing, sis. Keep going, we can see your headlights.” What am I doing? I’m basically relying on the fact that Nate and I had bonded a little and that both our parents are together. I’m not sure those facts are worth my life. No, he wouldn’t. I’m just being paranoid. The only time, except for school, where I didn’t bring my fucking pistol either. I sag in defeat. My dad will not be impressed with my not carrying, and my mom will no doubt be screaming at me from the other side about how these are the reasons why she and my dad educated me so much on firearms. I’ve failed as a fucking daughter. I shuffle up in my seat.
“Nate, I don’t fucking see anything up here but ja—OMG!” I slam on the breaks, all four tires locking up in a skid. I squeeze the steering wheel tightly, banging down the locks on the doors. “Nate!” I yell into the phone.
Silence.
Slowly, I look up out the front windscreen, the thick dust from my tires interrupting the loose gravel still floating in the air and that’s when I see it again.
Ten men.
Ten dark hoodies covering their faces.
Ten—“Nate..” understanding sets in. Ten.
Slamming the gear into reverse, I’m just about to floor it backwards—to hell with anything or anyone behind me—when my driver’s window smashes into a million pieces, the tiny shards of glass falling onto my lap. I scream, my hands coming up to shield my face just as an arm slips inside and pops up the lock.
A deep menacing chuckle breathes over the back of my neck just as a leather gloved hand wraps around my mouth and pulls me out of the car. “Hello Madison. You don’t know us, but we know you. We want to play a game. Here’s what happens if you lose…”

Some desires are better left uncovered…

Erik Bertinelli is the son of the vilest mob boss in all of New York’s underbelly. He’s the enforcer, the hitman for the syndicate, and the type of guy who doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty. His hideaway is as unconventional as they come… the New York Public Library.

Maybe even kill…

Author Bio:

Romance is a genre that is oftentimes written by women, but my novels give you the chance to see through the eyes of some of the men that perhaps you fantasize about, and the opportunity to read about passion from the other side for a change. Stories told about real relationships, legit problems and past experiences… unless you’re an ex, in which case any resemblance to women living or dead is merely a coincidence. 😉

My name is Logan. I’m a full time firefighter during the day, but I’m not here to put out any fires. I’m here to start them. Hope you enjoy my stories and feel free to reach out at any time. I love to flirt.
