Release Blitz! Beautiful Burn By Jamie McGuire



Beautiful Burn Banner

Beautiful Burn Official Cover
Fresh out of college, Ellison Edson has fallen through the cracks of rock bottom. While staying in her family’s vacation home in Colorado, her behavior has finally gained the attention of her parents—but not in the way she hoped. Cut off from the millions she’s always taken for granted, and left alone to fend for herself, Ellie spirals further out of control, making a mistake she can’t take back.

Like his twin brother Taylor, Tyler Maddox is a member of the Alpine Hotshots, fighting wildland fires on the frontline. As arrogant as he is charming, Tyler’s nomadic lifestyle makes it easy to contain his relationships to one night. When he meets Ellie at a local party during off-season, her extreme personality and dismissive attitude fascinates him at first, but as his feelings deepen, Tyler realizes that the crippling inner demons of the woman he loves might be the strongest enemy any Maddox has ever faced.

Release Boost! Pandemonium By Bella Jewel




I am the good girl, the one who does no wrong.

Daughter to a ferocious and strong MC President, I know what protection feels like.

Until one night changes everything - and not a single person in the world can protect me from it, not even my dad.

Suffocating. Alone. Desperate.

I let my problems live deep inside until there is no longer anywhere to run.

I need an escape. Anything to make the pain go away.

Trouble comes for me, and I don't fight it.

I tried so hard to believe in what I was,

But nobody understood.

Not until him. Not until Lucas.

He sees me. He believes in me.

He refuses to let me drown.

He’s my way out. My escape.

But Lucas is forbidden. He’s a cop. I’m in danger. And my father is trying to protect what can’t be protected.

There can only be one outcome.

Pandemonium.


**This book can be read as a standalone, but don't stress original MC Sinner fans, your favs are all there!** 

My love for Bella Jewel started with her MC Sinners series and my love for her has only grown. When she announced that she was going to do a spin-off and that it would be about some of my all-time favorite biker’s children and I was extremely excited. I wish this one was even longer and it’s only the first book. I wanted it to be longer because I was loving revisiting the original characters and wanted more like an addict needs their next hit.

Ava goes through something that sets her world in a downward spiral and Lucas is who finds her and saves her. Lucas is a cop. Ava is the daughter of the MC President. Already with that right there, the drama is off the charts. Add in Lucas’ own past and past dealings with the Hell’s Sinners things are about to explode. I loved Lucas and how he was Ava’s savior, how even though he was dealing with his own pain the connection they shared continued to grow and even when something happens that could have destroyed what they were building they didn’t let it break them. They save and heal each other, and even Ava’s hard asses stubborn father Jackson can’t deny that. It takes a badass to love the daughter of a badass who will end you without second thought if you hurt his baby girl.

A lot of the times I am able to type out my reviews and the words just flow easily. Other times, like in this case, when it is an author who I love, who I admire and look up to I have so many problems finding the words to express how much I truly loved their book. I don’t just want to say I loved it and you all need to read it but at the same time that may be the most simple are truest way to express it. So I am going to go with this. I LOVED Pandemonium, any Bella Jewel fan needs to read about our favorite biker’s children to see what hell they not only will raise to drive their parents insane but who may love who and what the next generations of these badasses will bring. I can’t wait to go along for the ride once again with the Hell’s Sinners MC.

Release Boost! Paradise Fought Abel By L.B. Dunbar



I'm not a fighter.

I was born into a fighting family. As the middle child, I was overlooked in favor of my older brother.
He took the negative attention, too. In comparison, there's nothing special about me.
I’m not as big as Cobra. I’m not as strong as Cobra. He's the alpha.
I'm a beta.
The second son.
The lesser one.
The one never encouraged to fight, never encouraged to do anything, but stay out of my father’s way.

I'm not a lover either - but I wished to be – that’s why I needed her.
I met a girl in the pouring rain.
Sounds cliché, but it's true. It changed everything.
Because of love, I learned to fight.

Betas come second, but in this fight, my story is first.

Excerpt

If I thought I was going to make a speedy getaway, I was wrong. My savior caught up to me, half way down the walk, outside the finance building. He was quick and a large hand wrapped around my upper arm.

“Whoa, sister,” he said, slightly out of breath. “You almost got away from me again.”

“What?” I questioned. I had no idea what he meant: again.

“Never mind,” he muttered, his hand still on me. I looked down at it and he immediately released me. My eyes pinched as I realized I didn’t mind his hand on my skin. There was something nonthreatening about him. He seemed rather innocent, studious, actually. His shirt was buttoned almost to the top and tucked into his pants. The sleeves secure at the cuffs. His jeans were snug and hugged him well. He wore dark rimmed glasses that screamed smart. Brown boots looked too new on his large feet. It was like he had the right parts but the wrong combination.

His blue eyes were soft and easy to look into. They practically spoke to me, but I had no idea what he was saying. His dark hair was disheveled, a bit shaggy, but cool looking. He kind of looked like a pop star, which was a little too sugar sweet for me. His form was questionable. It was hard to tell what kind of body he had under those clothes. He looked rather preppy, like half the guys at this university. I didn’t want to think about it. I’d just sold my soul for another semester.

“So when do you want to do this?” I asked. His blank stare told me he had no idea what I meant.

“Us,” I said, pointing between him and me.

“I…” His voice trailed off as he gawked at me. His expression changed from confusion to shock.

“I didn’t buy you to sleep with you,” he said, a touch of disbelief in his voice. His face turned crimson, then fell. “Why, have you done that before?” It was my turn to be surprised and offended.

I turned on my heels and began stomping away from him. He was too quick and he caught me again. His hand on my arm halted me. This time he didn’t release me when I peered down at his fingers wrapped around my bicep.

“Look. I need help,” he blurted. His face pinked a little, and it was sweet. “I don’t need help with sex. I need help with before.” His tone dropped, and he looked side to side to see if anyone would hear him. I took his meaning.

“You don’t know how to do foreplay?” I questioned in a loud whisper, trying to hide my astonishment. How could anyone have sex and not know a touch of foreplay?

His face pinked again.

“Not that,” he said, sounding like a child. “The flirting. The dating. The…other stuff.”

I was stunned. I stared at him, taking in his features again. He was kind of cute, leaning toward the potential for good looking. He couldn’t possibly need help with this request. The confusion on my face made him speak.

“I don’t know how to flirt.” The words swirled between us.

“I don’t understand.” I didn’t. I didn’t know what he wanted from me.

“I need lessons how to be…cool: with girls. Call it a tutoring session. I need to learn how to be…seen.” His voice took on a touch of sadness. He couldn’t possibly be serious. I continued to stare at him. My mouth might have actually dropped open a bit, and I noticed he was watching my lips. It was a little exciting the way he stared at them. I licked them and his pupils dilated, filling in more black over the blue. His expression changed. Knowingly, he blinked when he realized I was teasing him. His lip quirked up and a dimple showed in his cheek.

“I need to date you,” he blurted. “To learn how to do, what you just did to me.”

Release Blitz! Black By T.L. Smith

black release day

black release dayI am loyal, but I will betray you. 
I am strong, but I have scars. 
I am an angel, but the devil. 
I met her when I was sixteen and she was a breath of fresh air. She swooped in, making me smile. But then she left, taking my next breath with her. 
Her smile could light up a room, making my black heart pitter patter. 
I found her again ten years later, with a syringe in her arm. 
Blood coming from between her legs. 
She was broken and I was glad she was broken. She wouldn't think less of me and my damaged ways.

Blog Tour! Scarless & Sacred By Bethany-Kris

Scarless & Sacred Tour Banner

Scarless & Sacred Cover

 Secrets and wars leave the deepest scars.
Evelina Conti has always worn a mask. She is an Outfit principessa, respected and adored. She wasn’t allowed to be anything else. Her father went from a grieving husband to the Outfit boss, and now that Riley heads the family, Eve is more suffocated than ever. No matter how much she hates it, the Conti princess still has a role to play. A little attention from Theo DeLuca seems innocent enough, but nothing is when it comes to him. And certainly not when everyone believes that Theo is out to kill her. Theo DeLuca has a target on his back. His biggest problem is figuring out who put it there when everyone is aiming at him. He doesn’t need a woman causing him issues, but the Conti princess keeps showing up at the worst times, and he’s the one left saving her. Between the men surrounding him that Theo can’t trust, and the past he can’t outrun, Evelina might be the one thing he doesn’t have to question. But when Riley decides to use Eve as his next move, even Theo might not be able to save her. The war in Chicago is not even close to being over. This game is deadly. Each hand played cuts another mark into someone else. The Outfit boss is struggling while the men around him are rallying. As the body count continues to rise, the families keep losing. Sacrifices are a part of war. No one will walk away from this without scars. 

 *** PLEASE NOTE: Scarless & Sacred is not intended to be read as a standalone in this series. It is the third book in the series and should be read after the first two books. Trigger Warning: Scarless features graphic violence and scenes of past abuse.
I really love it when I not only find a new to me author but also a series that sucked me in and has kept me wanting more.  The Chicago War series has done just that and Scarless & Sacred in my opinion is the best book yet.  I should probably note that I said that each book was my favorite after I finished them but hello I don’t call myself a book whore for nothing I find a book I love I love it hard until the next one.  If you aren’t familiar with this series this is the third book and just because things seem to be calming down that sure as hell isn’t the case.  Oh and make sure you read the previous books so you know what is going on, if not you will be lost and not enjoy it anywhere as much as you would have if you did.

I love me some sexy mafia men in my books and Theo, my oh my, Theo can melt your panties from your body.  What I wouldn’t give to be Eve especially with some of those scenes with Theo *fans self*.  These two are hot, and I mean extremely hot, but they are so much more than that.  It takes a certain kind of woman to put up not only with an alpha male but add in one who is in the mafia lifestyle and it isn’t easy and Eve grew up in it so these two just fit together.   Maybe it’s the fact that I am watching Mobwives that’s increasing my love for this book but honestly I doubt it because the book is just that damn good.


Sorry I am not going to give details away, I am going to be a stingy book whore but then again you know me, you know I won’t ruin the book for others by spoiling the storyline but I will say this, you don’t want to miss this series because it really is that damn good and you will want to read them back to back to back once you start and not want to stop.

Synopsis: Play dirty. It’s the only way to win in a war. Alessa Trentini follows the rules, or so it seems on the outside. A certain Conti has always been able to sway her inner rebel and keep her out of trouble, but even Adriano won’t be able to get her out of her brother’s mess. In a war, no woman is safe if her hand in marriage can advance her family in the world of the mafia. But mistakes of the past have a way of slipping into the present and Alessa will soon learn that even the most shameful of secrets can get her everything she wants. Adriano Conti’s loyalties are torn as he’s forced to stand at his father’s side while Riley uses his wife’s murder as a way to get higher. Blood comes first and then the Outfit. The one thing he doesn’t question in the war between the families is Alessa Trentini and even that doesn’t seem possible when he’s forced to watch Alessa be used as another man’s pawn. Adriano has his own role to play to get what he wants. The families in the Outfit have never been more divided than they are now. Blood continues to spill as revenge takes center stage and more lives are lost. But every man in the family is fighting for something different and no one’s intentions can be trusted. Playing a dirty game might be the only way to stay alive. Even if that means ruining it all.
