Release Blitz! Mercy By Debra Anastasia





He taught me to kill. Murder is in my blood now. It runs through my veins and though I hide the monster I see in the mirror with ink, it doesn’t keep him from coming out.

My street name is Mercy, but I never show any. Except for her. I watch Becca, though she doesn’t know. She saved me a long time ago; the day my father killed my mother. Her bravery turned her into a target.

My father holds a grudge and knife with the same proficiency, and Becca is the focus of his hatred. And I’m the only monster who can save her.



I have sat here and stared at my laptop screen trying to figure out how I want to word my review of Mercy.  One hand I really liked it but on the other I didn’t.  I liked the premise of the book; it was intriguing and had me wanting to find out what was going to happen next.  However there were times that I got bored and wanted things to speed along. 

Nix and Becca worked well together but for a majority of the book Becca would in a way annoy me.  Maybe it was the flow of the writing, maybe it was that there were too many things all at once but I just didn’t feel that intense feeling of oh I love her.  Nix was a combination of sexy, dangerous, sweet and gritty.  He drew me in almost immediately with the allure of danger because of his full body skeleton tattoo.


Mercy at the end of the day was a good read; I just wish for me it had been great. I think it will really work for some and not for others but as always make your own mind up.

Release Blitz! Hate Me Take Me By Clare James



HATE ME, TAKE ME

They say there’s a thin line between love and hate, and in the case of these couples, we’re talking razor thin!

In this hate-to-love duet by Clare James, two couples cross that dangerous line…more than once! 

Hate Me

Falling for your sister’s nemesis? Only a low-life dog would do something like that, right? And that ain’t me, not anymore. I’m trying to be a stand-up guy—finally making smart decisions, helping my little sister, and getting my shit together. For once, things are finally going my way.

Until Jenna shows up. As soon as I meet her, I know she’s the enemy. I’ve heard enough to understand that she’s off limits. Banned. Forbidden. But when she moves in next door, it’s impossible to stay away, and I soon discover she’s not as bad as everyone says. Of course, she’s difficult, selfish, and a royal pain in the ass, but she’s also gorgeous, smart, kind, and…well, let’s just say I am that low-life dog. Traitor. Turncoat. And the world’s shittiest brother. Woof. Woof.

Take Me

It's an offer I can't refuse...

He was my best friend. He is my current enemy. Yet he wants me and I want him. And since we’re both stuck in our hometown unattached, we agree to a truce.

Two hours, once a week, no strings attached. But what sounds like the perfect arrangement, turns into so much more…yet not nearly enough. 

This hate-to-love duet includes: Never Be Tamed, Two-Hour Truce, and exclusive bonus content.

“Jenna,” he said with more force this time. “Look at me.”
I flashed my gaze up to him and then back down, quickly.
It wasn’t enough for him. He placed a finger under my chin and tipped my face up to his so I had no choice this time. His eyes were soft, but intense. Not quite black as they were before, but they were dilated, and his lids were slightly hooded. It made me wonder what my eyes looked like to him in the moment. Were they giving me away? Could he see that he had broken through the wall that not many people had? Did he know how desperately I wanted him to stay? Could he tell I needed his touch?
Did he know he was dealing with a completely sex-starved, socially awkward, recluse?
The corner of his mouth quirked up just then, and I thought yes, maybe he did know.
“Thank you for dinner,” he said as my eyes tore away from his and focused on his mouth. He licked his bottom lip, and the flickers flashed in my stomach again. Sparks working toward a flame.
I nodded, unable to find my words when he was invading my space.
His lips moved closer to my face, and I swallowed, bracing myself.
My throat went try. My hands shook. And that flame took hold inside me. I didn’t want to wait for him. I wanted to kill the daylight between our bodies while my hands tangled in his hair. I wanted to know what he tasted like. There was so much I wanted, but in the end, I couldn’t do any of those things.
And instead of his lips descending on mine, they veered left, and landed on the shell of my ear.
“I know you thought I was afraid to be alone with you, but just so you know,” he said with a ragged breath that I felt from the top of my scalp all the way down to my toes, “I’m not afraid of anything.”
He pressed his lips on my cheek, and then he was gone.

Review Blitz! Drunk Dial By Penelope Ward

   
    From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him. Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions. I didn’t think he’d call me back. I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become. Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets. Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake. A complete STANDALONE.


Okay so who has never drunk dialed someone, maybe the person who hurt you, maybe the person you are secretly in love with, maybe an old friend or maybe it is all of the above?  I went into Drunk Dial thinking it was going to head into a totally different direction than what it actually did.  Now don’t think for even the slightest second that what I expect and what I got had me not liking Drunk Dial, totally the opposite I liked the change, the way that Ms. Ward took on a sometimes very delicate subject and turned it into something beautiful.  And no I am not going to give it away so don’t bother asking or messaging me about it cause I won’t do it. 

Landon and Rana were characters that you can’t help but open your heart to.  Now I never thought I would ever admit this out loud because I loathed the nickname growing up but my oldest friend on the planet used to call me Janna Banana so when I say that Landon would call Rana Rana Banana I couldn’t help but smile.  Another reason why Drunk Dial means more to me than it may others is that it is based near where I live and grew up.  I was shocked, excited and impressed with the way Ms. Ward was able to make me think she lived right next door and saw it the way I did through my eyes. 

Landon and Rana’s relationship wasn’t your typical second chance romance because they never had been together in that way, but the promise of what could have been, what is now and what the future holds is what made Drunk Dial a book that I just could not put down.  I loved it.  I laughed, I cried, I screamed, and I silently prayed that everything would be okay.  Drunk Dial is a book that I can easily recommend and one that very well may be Ms. Ward’s best book yet!

Cover Reveal! Burn In Hail By Lani Lynn Vale


Release Date: November 17, 2017 

One look at the sixteen-year-old, prim and proper town goody-two-shoes, Hennessy Hanes, and Tate Casey knows he’s in trouble. He knows he should stay away from the preacher’s daughter, but there’s something about her he’s drawn to, and he can’t resist the pull. The more he gets to know her, the more he realizes that something isn’t right. He may not be able put his finger on what it is, but he’s determined to find out what’s going on with the girl with the haunted eyes. Tate didn’t anticipate that someone else would be just as determined to keep Hennessy’s nightmare a secret, and he never realizes just how far that person is willing go to keep those skeletons in the closet until it’s too late. With the very real threat of jail time hanging over his head, Tate leaves without a backwards glance at the town or the girl. The problem is that out-of-sight doesn’t necessarily mean out of mind, and it’s Tate who’s now haunted by his decision and memories of Hennessy. *** Hennessy Hanes knows better than anyone that not everything is always as it appears to be. After years of being on the receiving end of her squeaky-clean preacher father’s abuse, she seizes an opportunity to leave it all behind and runs. Her only regret is that in walking away she loses any chance with the one person who tried to save her. *** Fast forward ten years, and they’re both back where they started. Tate was never a good boy, and it turns out that the man he’s now grown into isn’t all that much better. Anger is a living, breathing part of him, and there’s a court order forcing him to seek help from the one person he’s never forgotten. Hennessy never thought she’d see Tate Casey again, and certainly not on her couch. But now it’s her turn to save him, and there are rules she must follow as his psychologist, not to mention a court order instructing her to help him manage his anger. If she doesn’t follow those rules, he’ll end up back in jail. Tate Casey has never been a man who followed the rules, and Hennessy is no longer the straight-laced, timid preacher’s daughter she once was. His hands may be tied, so it looks like for the first time in Hennessy’s life, she’ll be the one breaking the rules for the chance to finally get what she’s always wanted. Him.









I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
