Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000031_00002]Clarissa never thought at age twenty-six she would be fearing for her life. Everything was going as planned, until her husband started showing a side of himself she didn’t know existed. Failed attempts at leaving him have now left her fighting for her life. Literally. She knows she has to figure out a plan to free herself from his tight grip, but it’s harder than she imagined. Rig endured much pain after a tragedy left him trying to figure out his place in the world. He now plows through situations, leaving nothing safe in his wake. He lives for the thrill of danger and loves to be on the open road. He doesn’t mix business with pleasure, and he didn’t expect to fall in love with the girl he is hiding out. When things get too intense between Clarissa and Rig, he decides he can no longer be her safety net. With his feelings clouding his judgment, it’s hard for him to choose between right and wrong. Will Rig be able to figure out what he wants in time to save Clarissa’s life, or will she become another statistic of domestic abuse? add-to-goodreads-button

Blog Tour: Getting Played by Mia Storm


Rules of the game:
1) Never underestimate your opponent
2) Avoid personal fouls
3) Score early and often
4) Play or get played

Coach Marcus Leon has always played by the rules…until he meets Addaline Grace, the seventeen-year-old senior transfer on his Oak Crest High water polo team. Addie changes all the rules, mostly because she doesn’t play any games. But as off limits as she is, the more Marcus discovers about Addie, the more he finds himself…and the more he questions whether Addie might just be worth risking everything for.

For Addie, water polo is anger management. She’s driven and focused because it keeps her mind off other things…like the fact she destroyed her family. Her game plan is to keep her head down and graduate so she can leave her father and the crappy town he dragged her to in her wake. But when what starts as friendly completion with Marcus turns into more than a game, Addie has to decide if she’s willing to face down her demons…and possibly ruin the man she may or may not be falling in love with in the process.

What happens when the only thing you need is the one thing you can’t have?


My Review
You don't get to choose who you fall in love with. That's why it's called falling.

I think that is the perfect quote to summarize up this book. Try as hard as you can, but you cannot help what your heart desires even if it is wrong. Love doesn't come with a manual. Sometimes the heart wants what the heart wants. In the case of this series it happens to be "Jailbait."

I loved Getting Dirty, so it was no surprise that I was excited to read Getting Played and I was not disappointed! While Getting Played isn't quiet as steamy and full of sexual innuendos as the first book, it was still hot and heartfelt.
Marcus is still upset about Blaire and Caiden and the way their relationship happened. After all his sister was underage at the time. But Marcus is about to have his world knocked off balance along with his previous beliefs. He's the girls water polo coach at his old high school but what he doesn't expect is to be drawn to Addie.
Addie is just pretty much going through the motions after her life is wrecked by tragedy and to make matters worse her dad is a drunk. Moving to a new place sucks especially senior year. Her plan is to keep her head down and take all of her pain and aggression out in the pool. That is until she starts to feel something for her water polo coach.
I really liked the way things progresses with Addie and Marcus. In fact, I was shocked at just how much I liked Marcus. After Blaire's story I wasn't sure how I would like him in a similar situation, but I was pleasantly surprised. I loved his character and personality. He really is a great guy. I also really liked Addie. She was reclusive to an extent but she was dealing with a lot and was also strong. I like that she wasn't aggressive or didn't try to hard. She was just herself and it was refreshing. I really think this is quickly becoming one of my favorite series!

“One more thing I can check off my bucket list,” he says with a grin, then shoves half the slice into his mouth.
“What else is on your list?” I ask.
He gives me a long look as he chews. “I don’t really have one, now that you mention it.”
“They’re stupid anyway,” I say with a shrug. “It’s a waste of time thinking about all the things you want to do before you die. You could die tomorrow and a bucket list isn’t going to mean squat.”
I only realize how bitter that sounded when his gaze locks on mine and sharpens, as if he’s lasering in on my thoughts.
I shake myself loose from those eyes that could compel me to spill my darkest secrets if I were to gaze into them too long and take a bite of pizza. “But whatever. If you want a bucket list, go for it.”
“You don’t have anything you want to do before you check out?” he asks with raised eyebrows.
“Haven’t thought about it.”
“Well you should,” he says, going for another slice. “I want a bucket list.”
“Then make one.”
He leans back and takes a bite. “So where should we start?”
“You already have,” I say with a wave of my slice toward his.
He holds his up. “And you’ve gotten me off to a fine one. So now we need something to top anchovies.”
“We?” I ask. “I told you I don’t want any part of this.”
 “Tough, because what if your idea turns out the be the Best Thing Ever and I would have missed it because I never thought of it.” He tears off a hunk of pizza with his teeth. “Like anchovies.”
I look at him a long second as he chews and a hot tingle runs under my skin. “So we’d do stuff from the list together?”
He nods as he swallows. “That would be the general plan. Call it moral support, call it peer pressure, all I know is we’re more likely to check stuff off the list if we’re both doing it.”
My heart starts to pound as the possibilities scroll in my head. “How are we going to do this?”
“A collaboration. We’ll each throw ideas out until we have a list, then we can rank them together.”
“How do you know I won’t put something like ‘lose my virginity’ on the list?” Heat radiates from my face, but I force myself to hold his gaze.
There’s a second that he just stares at me, but then his eyes grows softer. “I’d expect you would.”
For several beats of my racing heart, we sit here staring at each other, then he clears his throat. “I want to try one new food a week. And I’m open to suggestions.” He says with a nod at the pizza box. “Your turn.”
“I have to come up with another one right here on the spot?” I say.
He cocks his head in a question, but then the light dawns in his eyes. “Ah…virginity. Right…” He pulls out his phone and starts typing it like it’s no big thing, then shifts and hooks an elbow over the back of the bench as he thinks. “Swim with dolphins.”
I nod. “That’s a good one. Put that on top.”
He raises his eyebrows as she shoots me a glance out from under those long, thick lashes. “Above virginity?”
All the muscles south of my waist contract. “I guess I’ll leave that up to you, since I’ve never done either.”

A poem by Blaire Leon

If sex is dirty, why would I do it with someone I love?
If sex is dirty, then didn’t we all come from the dirt?
What if I like the dirt?
What if I want to get dirty?
What if I want to roll in the mud until I’m so fucking filthy that I’ll never be clean again?

When twenty-five-year-old graduate assistant Caiden Brenner asked Blaire Leon how old she was, she said she was a senior. He chose to believe she meant in college. They connect over Lord Byron’s Don Juan and, as their conversations become increasingly thicker with sexual innuendo, Caiden finds himself obsessing over a totally off-limits undergrad who’s bold, beautiful, brilliant, and one of the most passionate poets he’s ever met.

But it turns out Blaire hasn't been totally honest. She's the seventeen-year-old valedictorian of her high school class, taking courses at Sierra State while awaiting her acceptance to Stanford.

Will Caiden get too deeply into Blaire to back away before he finds out the truth? Or will their connection be enough to seduce him into risking his entire future on Jail Bait?

Review Tour: Fair Game by Monica Murphy

You are going to LOVE this new series by Monica Murphy! We're celebrating the release of FAIR GAME! Join us in the fun!

Title: Fair Game
Series Name: The Rules Series
Author Name: Monica Murphy
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Cover Designer: Sarah Hansen, Okay Creations

FAIR GAME (The Rules Series, Book 1) May 12, 2015
Bad enough Jade Frost's boyfriend drags her to a boring poker game. Even worse that he actually threw her into the betting pot during an intense round...and lost. Talk about the perfect excuse for Jade to make him her ex-boyfriend.

Now she supposedly belongs to the ultra rich, extremely gorgeous Shep Prescott. He could have anything he wants yet he seems to be in hot pursuit of her. No matter how rude, how snarky, how impossible she acts, it doesn't stop him. More like her horrible behavior seems to make him want her more.

When she finds herself starting to fall for him, Jade's confused. There's more to Shep than the carefree rich charmer he portrays. No way could he want a serious relationship with her...or could he?

My Review
I loved this book. Right from the beginning it pulled me in. I admit, Shep's charm had me pulled under his sweet seductive spell. I don't see how Jade stood a chance! The thing I loved the most about this book is that there was NO angst. Now don't get me wrong, I like angsty books just as much as the next person, but I LOVED that this book did not have any unnecessary drama. I almost expected something horrible to happen. That isn't to say that things went smoothly or perfect,but everything was justified.

Anyways- Jade is a spitfire. A firecracker. No, I am not making jokes about her being a hot tempered red head, though she is, but girl seriously doesn't take any shit. I really liked that about her. But even more I loved her and Shep's interactions.

Shep is your typical rich kid. He's gorgeous, a manwhore, and arrogant. But what drew me to him the most is that underneath it all he's just a normal guy. I really did love him! He grows so much through the course of this book!

I don't want to say much about this book because there is just so much that I loved! I cannot wait to read more in this series! I think this new series is going to be a hit. This first one was fantastic and I loved the story line! The beginning is great and I love how Shep wins her in a bet!

PROMO: Bad Advice by Emily Snow & Avonlea Cole

cooltext117966856923913 Release_Banner


Title: Bad Advice
Authors: Emily Snow & Avonlea Cole
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book Cover Design: Letitia Hasser


For Avery, relationship advice comes easy. Even if her own love life is in shambles, doling out her opinion is what she was born to do. When she scores her own advice column in a prominent Charlotte newspaper, Avery is ecstatic—that is until a snarky blogger, Amanda Truthslayer, pops up on a popular website that caters to the miserable. Amanda’s blog takes questions directly from Avery, spinning the sweet advice into a blunt cringe-worthy bitchfest. Realizing that the elusive Amanda’s in-your-face opinion might just ruin her brand, Avery has no other choice but to seek out the very sexy, very available, very cynical owner of the website and the Bradbury Enterprises gaming dynasty, Max Bradford. From the moment she and Max cross paths, sparks fly. Avery believes in fairytales and he believes in … well, being an asshat. When he gives her the news that he can’t and won’t pull Amanda’s blog, Avery makes it her mission to turn the cynical, love-hating Max and his scathing blogger into believers of happily ever after. But inserting herself into Max's life slowly begins to backfire. Because the more Amanda flips Avery's advice, the more Avery realizes how skewed her own perception on relationships might be. And the more she’s around Max, the more impossible it is to resist him.
