Speechless. That is how I am left after finishing In Peace Lies Havoc by my reigning queen of mind fuckery, Amo Jones. The magic she weaves into the storylines, makes you addicted to her words, falling in love with the bad boy asshole, rooting on the heroine who takes names and kicks ass later.

In Peace Lies Havoc will have you believing just that. When things seems to be going one way, havoc is waiting around the corner and it can be life altering. This is more than true for Dove and Kingston. God. Kingston or King, hits every mark of the bad boy you hate to love and love to hate. He draws you into his web, you become trapped, but trust me you don't want to escape. Kingston, sigh, he could ride me any day, I mean ride his bike around me in The Triple Wheel of Death, okay actually I mean he could do both because GAH, King is just that fine *bites fist thinking of him* Anyways I do also love Dove's character, she has an inner strength that drives her, one that makes her as equally dangerous to King as he is to her. 

I want to scream a million things about In Peace Lies Havoc, but I refuse to spoil it. Amo Jones has once again written a masterpiece that will destroy your emotions again and again, make you a prisoner to the journey she takes you on, fuck with your mind, your heart and soul, and piece them back together again, piece by piece.

With every book I read by Amo Jones, the multiple kindles that have been thrown, broken and replaced, and the amount of wine I drink during and after, I become a bigger fan of hers. I call her the queen of mind fuckery and darkness but I love it, and I love how she can make me love her characters over and over again. In Peace Lies Havoc is one of my favorite books this year and one that must be on your TBR lists!



 He throws me onto my bed. “It means that I don’t fuck just anyone. I’m in control of myself. Are you?” he asks, his head tilting to the side. “What? Of course I am. And what about Val?” I couldn’t stop the words from spewing out of my mouth. He chuckles, his hands coming to my ankles to drag me down the bed until I’m half hanging off. Both his fists sink into either side of my head. He presses himself against me. “Why do you care about Val and me?” “There’s a you and Val?” I tilt my head. “Fuck no,” he answers. “She’s the least of your worries.” “Oh, that’s reassuring, King. Please do go on.” His eyes narrow, his head shaking. “You’re insane.” I shrug, coming up to my elbows. “Maybe.” I wrap my legs around his waist and push him down on top of me. “But you’re the exact same.” His lips crash onto mine, and he’s tearing my clothes off again. “Wait!” I push on his chest. He growls. Straight up growls like I’ve interrupted his feast. “What?” “You came in here for something. What was it?” “To tell you that we’re here.” He shrugs, before he’s biting down on my skin again, and I’m moaning his name. He stands from the bed, removing his shirt and his jeans, pushing them down to his feet. His cock is heavy in his hand as he pumps it softly. “I need those lips around my cock, Little Bird, and I need them on there now.” © Amo Jones, In Peace Lies Havoc

- Harloe Rae, USA Today bestselling author.

Broken Knight, an all new standalone about first loves, betrayal and loss from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen, is available now!

IMG_1621.jpg
Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending.

Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower.
Sweet.
Caring.
Charitable.
Quiet.
Fake.
Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language.
Who taught her how to laugh.
To live.
To love.
Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero.
Gorgeous.
Athletic.
Rugged.
Popular.
Liar.
This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna.
But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore.
When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes.
Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy.

Release Blitz! I'd Rather Not By Lani Lynn Vale


Oakley Spurlock is dying. 

She only has weeks to live thanks to a freak infection that totally and completely destroyed her kidneys.

Despite her family's desperation, not a single one of them is a match. 

In a last-ditch attempt, Oakley's father takes to social media to bed for help to save his daughter's life.

Pace Vineyard is lost. So lost, in fact, that he's not sure he wasnts to be found.

But then a beautiful woman's face is splashed across social media, and Pace finds a spark in his soul for the first time since a bomb went off beside him.

He's already missing two legs. What's one more kidney?

At least, that's what he tells himself.

What he doesn't expect is to give his heart to the woman, too. Or for the woman to run away with it and force him to follow.

Instead of saying I’d Rather Not, for me it’s an I’d rather yes! Okay so the book whore is a big dork but still I loved it. Sometimes fate intercedes when it is needed and for Oakley it happened at the right time. Pace, god I fell in love with this man big time. The hell he has gone through, you would think that he would be hardened but the goodness of this man will surprise you. With every Lani Lynn Vale book that I read, the more that I absolutely love her books. The males are swoon worthy, the females are hilarious, and together they end up being the total package and absolutely perfect for each other.


Normally I write this long review for her books, but I honestly believe the next sentence is enough. If you are looking for a romance that makes you believe it fate and soulmates, I’d Rather Not is the book for you, it is one of my favorite books from Lani Lynn Vale and one I highly recommend!

Release Blitz! Fury By Laramie Briscoe



Family is number one; whether they are blood related or patched in.

At thirteen-years-old, the bastard son of an asshole who wanted me to fail, I learned that lesson.

Thanks to one man.

Liam Walker raised me, taught me how to be an adult, and loved the hell out of my mother, me, and my sisters. He funneled my anger into productiveness when teenage me lost the love of his life. Because of him, I knew how to love her when she came back. His dedication to me and my sisters was the example I needed when my twins were born.

Tracing his footsteps may not have been my birthright, but him turning over the president patch to me is what I’ve waited for since I was thirteen. Calm, cool, and collected – that’s how he ran The Heaven Hill MC – and it’s how I’ve run it too.

Until now.

Ambushed on our own streets. Fighting an enemy we didn’t know we had. Innocent people hurt all because of a misguided sense of entitlement.

The difference between me and Liam? I have anger I’ve held back, kept my emotions under control for half my life, been the loving man I’m supposed to be, but for this piece of shit who threatened us? I’m about to unleash something he’s never seen before.

My fury. 



There is one thing you need to know about the Heaven Hill MC series, and that is family means everything to each member of the MC, mess with that family and you won’t survive to see the next day. The one thing Drew cares more about than his MC family is his wife and their daughters. The person messing with them has no idea the length that Drew would go to keep his family safe. There is a traitor in the MC and when you learn who it is, you want to take that person out yourself. Fury is perfectly titled because what I felt, what Drew feels is fury.

We see such a growth in Drew and Charity’s characters since their original book. Together they are strong and even with all that happens, the love they share for one another is unbreakable. I loved getting more of their story especially since now Drew is the President of the MC, we needed to get more and have him show he really is deserving of that patch, and spoiler alert, he is.


I am loving the direction that Ms. Briscoe is taking the Next Generation series. I am loving the blending of the original members and now their children. I already can’t wait for the book to be release I absolutely love these books!

Release Blitz! The Truth About Tomorrow By B. Celeste



Age is just a number.

Just like he's just a boy and I'm just a girl.

Except that's not true, is it?

Because fifteen may be a number, but it's bigger than that. Bigger than us.

It's a number that separates us.

An excuse that keeps us apart.

But I'm not willing to give in until I get what I want.

After all, how many other girls can bring a grown man to his knees with one little smile?

“Show me how to play,” I say.
Her body leans back as her brows pinch with a dubious stare. “You want me to teach you how to play piano?”
I nod. “The song you played. I like it.”
She blinks, brushing her fingers through her hair. “It’s about learning to love people’s faults and pain for what they are. Beautiful.”
My head cocks. “Why is that?”
She wets her bottom lip. “I guess when you love someone, you don’t get to choose which parts. You’re getting every single piece of their being, scarred or not.”
Her eyes trail to her hand, scarred with white and pink marks. My fingers graze over each one, causing her to suck in a breath and freeze as I caress the marred flesh. They’re rougher than the rest of her hand, but part of her nonetheless.
Meeting her eyes, we stay like that for a few long moments. Neither of us says a thing or moves an inch. We just remain touching, staring, being there in one another’s company.
Then I pull away. “What are the keys I need to learn for the song?”
She exhales then shows me the basics.
It’s a silent admission between us.
Your scars are beautiful, Charlie.
