Author Bio
Rylee Everley Series by S.M. Knowles

S.M. Knowles was born in Elmira, New York where she was swept away in a whirlwind to the Land of Oz–Independence, Kansas. Her parents were relocating for working opportunities and decided that this would be the perfect place to start new roots. Little did she know that this place would contribute to the inspiration for the first book she wrote in her Rylee Everley Series.

While growing up, S.M. would travel the roads around her house while imagining she was somewhere else. Her imagination would take her everywhere, making the long hot summer days seem shorter throughout her fantasies.

At the age of twelve, she decided to write her first book. Filled mostly with dialog, she filled up one-hundred pages, front and back. After taking the book downstairs to show her mom, and persuading her to buy her more paper, she excitedly ran back to her room. As she barreled through the door, S.M. tripped over items left on her floor, and her papers came raining down in her room. Discouraged, she stood there in tears, picking up her papers and throwing them in the trash. Her work had no organization, no numbers on her pages, just a child fulfilling a joy that she would put down and not pick up again.

When she became older, she joined the military for something different. In that time, she was able to explore many places and even met her husband in Iraq. After coming home, she started her family in Arizona and went back to school, earning a Master’s degree in Adult Education and Training.

All For Maddie by Jettie Woodruff-Blog Tour

Title:All for Maddie
Author: Jettie Woodruff
Genre: Adult Romance
Publication Date: December 13, 2013
Tour Host: Dreams Come True Promotions

I believe in love at first sight… because I am a mother.

Living a complete lie, holding on to a secret that could cost me the most important thing in my life was about to surface. I couldn’t breathe without Maddie. Maddie was my life. The saying about dying for your child is the absolute truth. The other things you would do are comparable to that of death. I know, I did those things. I did unthinkable things, all for Maddie. I continued the lie, the secrets with the one man who had no right. People say you always have options. That’s a lie. I had no choice. I did it all for her… for my Maddie.

5 STAR REVIEW BY TINA
I have to start off by saying I wasn’t sure if I wanted to read this book at first. I mean who would want to read a book about someone being raped? So my best friend & I decided we would read it at the same time & I have to say this book had my attention from the first page to the last. I literately didn’t want to put it down. I felt bad for Whitley & I wanted to choke Alex to death. How could a man be so insensitive, deceiving & manipulative. but yet so loving, caring & sweet at times. I wanted to hate Alex for what he did to Whitley but in the end I totally fell in love with him. A beautiful ending that I will always remember. 
5 AWESOME STAR REVIEW BY JEN
All I can say is holy smokes!!!! I was so drawn in, I couldn’t put it down!! It was like watching a train wreck but u can’t look away!! Whitley was raped, then manipulated, bribed & twisted into being a “family”! Just when I thought it was going one way, it went a whole other direction!! I hated Alex so much! I wanted to kick him in the throat!!! I wanted to write him off but I couldn’t!! He was controlling, a complete ass but then he was sweet, caring, loving! No matter  what he loved them!! I was shocked & surprised with the turn of events in the end!! I actually had tears in my eyes!! Great job!!

Excerpt #1

“Papaw, you watch dis wif me?” Maddie asked, holding up her princess movie.

My dad stood and went to her. I instantly jerked my hand from Alex’s, giving him a dirty look. He smirked. I wanted to punch him.

“Papaw has a better idea. Why don’t you stay here with papaw and nana tonight and let mommy have an adult night?” he offered, smiling over at me.

Man, this sucked. I didn’t want his smiling approval. I didn’t want him to like Alex. How could he like Alex? Alex was a conspirator. He couldn’t like Alex.

“No Dad, Alex came here to spend the weekend with her,” I tried.

“Alex is going to take her away from me. Alex can deal with it,” my dad joked, with Alex.

“Its fine, sweetie. She can stay if she wants to,” Alex approved, smiling at me.

I got up to go to bathroom. I had to. I was going to vomit, on him! I leaned in to Alex, catching the smile on his face when he thought that I was going to play his make believe game and kiss him or something. “You’re going to a hotel,” I seductively whispered in his ear.

Excerpt #2

“What’s wrong, baby? Did you have a bad dream?”

“No. A gemin under my bed,” she assured me.

“A gemin?” I repeated, not sure what the heck she was talking about.

“Uh-huh, I go in your bed, K?”

I carried her back to bed with me and snuggled her little body close to mine.

“A gemin under you bed?” she asked.

“What is a gemin?” I asked, wondering if she knew herself.

She rolled to her back so she could demonstrate with her hands.

“It dat big,” she gestured. “Dem can’t have no water.”

“Oh, my God!” I said, sitting up, reaching for my phone. I didn’t care that it was after two in the morning.

“What the hell, Whit?” Jaron answered on the third ring. “Do you know what time it is?”

“YES! You freaking let her watch Gremlins?”

“They’re cute,” he said.

“They’re monsters. She’s three for God’s sake.”

“I’ll tell her they’re not real tomorrow. Sorry, I’ll see you tomorrow,” Jaron said, hanging up on me. Grrrr. I couldn’t believe he let her watch the Gremlins.

Excerpt #3

“I’m not your pawn. You can’t treat me like this,” I yelled drunk words, trying to make sense.

Alex walked back out wearing his jeans.

“I have never treated you like my pawn.”

“You think I’m young and stupid and I just have to do everything—”

My words were cut off by his lips on mine. He tossed me toward to the bed and jerked my shoes off, flinging them roughly across the room. I stared in shock as he unsnapped my jeans and pulled them crudely over my hips.

“Alex, stop. What are you doing?”

He didn’t listen. He ran his fingers between my legs, aggressively shoving two fingers inside of me, dragging them up my wet slit, to my clit, and back inside of me.

“You want me to stop, Whitley?”

“No,” I whimpered as he assaulted my throbbing clitoris.

I dropped from my elbows as he moved down and took me with his mouth, violating my clit with intense pleasure. I felt like I was going to faint. It was so powerful and concentrated. I didn’t think he was ever going to let me come. I would get so close. As soon as I would start to writhe my hips into his mouth, he would slow down.

“Ah, right there. Don’t stop,” I begged with a whimper.

As soon as I screamed out in unbelievable pleasure he was kissing me. This was so messed up. I just walked in on him fucking someone else, and now I was tasting my pussy on his mouth.

“Fuck me, Alex,” I pleaded, panting heavily in his mouth.

He pulled back and stared down at me.

“I’m not going to fuck you, Whitley. I’m going to make love to you, but not tonight. Not now. Do you know when I am going to make love to you?”

I couldn’t answer. I just stared wide eyed and shook my head.

“I’m going to make love to you when you tell me to make love to you. When you are not drunk. Have you ever had sex sober, Whitley?”

Writing is more than a passion for me. I write adult books, romance and erotica. I did recently try my hand at a young adult romance, but because of the gutter that my mind seems to fall into. It quickly went into rated R mode. I reside in Ohio. I love living in Ohio, except maybe the cold winters, and the snow, well maybe the hot summers too. Ah hell, I hate Ohio.

I love to push my limits in writing, fuel the senses and emotions of my readers. I have some great supporters and love them all dearly.

Absolution by Amanada Dick-Blog Tour

A freak accident, a moment in time, and life changes forever. Stay or go – there’s no such thing as the easy way out. The accident wasn’t his fault but in the horrific aftermath, Jack’s actions may have possibly caused consequences he could never have foreseen. Consumed with guilt and unable to listen to reason, he takes the only option he believes is open to him: he disappears. Living a quiet life away from everyone he loves, he drops off the grid but the memories continue to haunt him. 

Four years later, a funeral signals a homecoming fraught with tension as he finally forces himself to face up to the consequences of his actions. Betrayed and angry, his former best friend Callum wants nothing more than to see him disappear once again – for good this time. Meanwhile his ex-girlfriend Ally has moved on and he can see that his return is anything but easy for her. People change, life goes on and things are never as simple as they seem. The past has a habit of catching up with you when you least expect it. 

Living with regret and guilt almost tore him apart, but there is no guarantee that trying to make amends will soothe his soul or help the people he loves the most. 

Courage has many faces. Fighting for what you believe in, no matter what. Showing strength of mind and body when the cards are stacked against you. Rising to the challenge and playing through the pain. 

And yet sometimes, courage means simply standing your ground.

excerpt

“You want to know if I told her about what happened that night.”

Callum glared at him, and Jack could tell he was on the right track.

“The answer is no, I didn’t. But why the hell didn’t you? You were there, you knew.”

“Because it wasn’t my place to tell her – it was yours.” Callum snapped.

“Jesus, Callum! You just let her think God knows what, all this time?”

“What the hell do you care what she thought! You weren’t here, remember? I didn’t tell her because what the hell would be the point?”

“What would be the point?” Jack repeated indignantly. “She would have known!”

“Known what? That you were a coward? She figured that one out for herself when she woke up and you were gone!”

Jack opened his mouth to speak, but Callum cut him off.

“Don’t you dare come back here and start blaming me or anyone else! No one told you to go – you made that choice yourself.” Callum hissed, eyes blazing. “You did the wrong thing then and by coming back now and stirring it all up again, all you’re doing is making it worse. You’re here for your own selfish reasons, not because of Tom or because of her!”

“I’m trying to make it right!” Jack insisted, heart racing.

“And how in the hell do you think you’re gonna do that?”

Jack stared at him dumbfounded, knowing that he had asked himself that question a million times and come up empty.

“She doesn’t need you anymore. The best thing you can do now is just crawl back into whatever hole you crawled out of and leave her be.”

Jack shook his head determinedly, his heart pounding. “No. I’m not going anywhere, not this time.”

Callum laughed scornfully. “That’s your master plan? Seriously?”

Jack glared at him in silence, his anger mounting.

“Oh come on – you gotta admit, that’s a reckless statement, especially for you.” Callum snorted derisively. “You disappear when the going gets tough, remember?”

Jack clenched his teeth so tight his jaw ached. “That’s not what happened and you know it.”

“Do I? Because that’s what it looked like from where I was standing!”

“You know damn well why I left!” Jack blurted out, his voice thunderous and desperate. “You knew what I did – you were there!”

“Yeah, I knew what you did – big deal! You were trying to save her life – she wouldn’t have blamed you!” he said hotly. “You did the wrong thing, Jack – you should’ve stayed.”

Jack stared at him, his heart racing. He thought about the relationship they used to have – how close they were. Like brothers. And now this; strangers – worse than that; enemies.

“I made a mistake.” he choked. “I won’t make that mistake again.”

Callum shook his head. He stood up straight and took a step backwards, eyeballing Jack as he forced his hands back into his pockets.

“Here’s the thing – you made your choice. Now you have to live with it, just like the rest of us. You can’t change what happened and if you stick around, you’re only gonna hurt her. Is that what you want?”

Jack opened his mouth to reply but Callum didn’t give him a chance.

“She was just starting to get her life back together, after everything she’s been through. Don’t rip it all apart again.” he pleaded quietly, clearly emotional. “Do the right thing this time – leave.”

She spent several months traveling around Europe in her late 20’s (there’s a story there – she’ll get around to writing it one day).  After ridding herself of her wanderlust, she met the love of her life (while working to pay off said wanderlust) in Edinburgh, Scotland.  They moved in together the week after their first date – so yes, she believes in love at first sight.  She also believes in Women’s Intuition and following your heart.

Yessi Smith-Author Spotlight

Meet Yessi Smith
Author
I’m a Hispanic living in South Florida with my redneck husband
from Texas and our “half breed” son, who is actually the reason I started
writing again after years of celibacy. My son loves stories, but not the kind
you can read in an existing book. No, he’d rather make up a story, complete
with our own illustrations. So, thank you, Son, for igniting a flame I had let
go out.

I also live with two dogs: a neurotic Border Collie we call
Nitro and a midget Rottweiler named Nisa.
I have always found my sanctuary at the beach and in music and
writing. I wish I could write rhymes so I could become a famous rapper, but
rhyming is completely lost on me.

I have a Bachelor’s
degree in Business Management and a Master’s in Human Resource Management. I
have held several jobs, from picking up dog crap to upper management positions.
And now I am hoping to leave the business world behind so I can live full time
in a world that does not exist until I place my fingers on.

Synopsis
I want to tell you how
great my life was. How I lived without regrets. With constant laughter. Without
any tears. I want to tell you how I lived each moment to the fullest. How each
breath I took was fresh and full of life. With eagerness. Without any fear.
I want to tell you all
of that, but then my story would be masked with lies and not worth telling.
My life didn’t start
until I left my past. And I left everything. My mother, my friends, my name.
My new name, the name
everyone knows me by is Erin Lewis.
Four years after finding
the courage to leave her hometown in Alabama, Erin is finally happy with where
her life has led her. Not only is she secure in her environment, but the
relationships she has formed center her, making her forget how damaged she once
was. Before she can fully settle into her new life, her past crashes into her
present, unraveling a set of events that destroy the very foundation she has
built her new life on.

Ten years. Countless miles.

How can I forgive him when I haven’t forgiven myself? I look at his fiancée and wonder how she could love a man so cruel. However, the closer I look at her, the more I realize that maybe she doesn’t love him after all.

What has he done to her?
I have to find out.

Abigail

Many tears. Countless men.

I thought I’d found the one man who wouldn’t break my heart. Two weeks before our wedding day, he came clean with his dirty past and shattered our future. He’s asking me to still love him, but how can I love a man so cruel? I look at the woman he destroyed, and I feel compelled to do everything I can to help her.

About the Author

B.L. Mooney started writing when the voices and storylines in her head ran out of room. They were getting too cramped and neither B.L. nor the characters could take it anymore, so she did the only thing she could do–she made room. She always knew she wanted to write, but vowed to make time for it later. Now that she’s made time for writing, most everything else falls to the wayside. That seems to suit the characters that keep popping up just fine.

B.L. lives in the Midwest and her other talents include in-demand cookies, a very dry sense of humor, and stealth eavesdropping. Some mannerisms, attitudes, or twists come from random sentences picked up while passing by strangers. So speak up the next time you have something to gossip about. You never know, it may just end up on the pages of the next book you read.

Diary of a Dieter by Marie Coulson-Blog Tour


























Curvy girl, Charlene Winters, had it all: the great career, wonderful friends and a dreamy fiancé. With her wedding day just three weeks away, Charlene is dealt a devastating blow. Suddenly finding her life, hopes and plans in tatters, the jilted bride sinks into despair and a tub of Ben and Jerry’s cookie dough. With the heartache of her fiancé’s infidelity still fresh, Charlene’s whisked away by her friends on a life-changing holiday. But how will this big fish cope now that she’s back in the dating pond and surrounded by slender trouts with Botox lips? Frustrated by best friend Adam thwarting her attempts at romance, and her girls Vanessa and Dana eager to set her up with a boy toy, Charlene decides the time for change is upon her. What she needs is a change of scenery, a change of dress size and maybe, a change of heart.




Born and bred in Essex, England, Marie Coulson discovered her love of writing in her early teens. Beginning with poetry and song lyrics, she tried her hand at creative writing while studying for her English GCSE. It was love at first line. Unfortunately, Marie’s career as a childcare and education practitioner soon took up most of her time and writing became something she only dreamed about. In the summer of 2012 she quit her job and enrolled at university, ready to start a new career as a therapist. This left her with a lot of time on her hands and on August the 20th she sat down and wrote the first chapter of Bound Together. Bound Together was a story that had been waiting three years to be written and when fingers hit the keyboard…Layla, Jared and Ollie’s story was born. Marie has since written and released two novels in the Bound Together series and a novella. Her romantic comedy novel Diary Of A Dieter has also received excellent reviews and is the debut novel in  the Confessions series.

I’m not going to lie, I wanted to go through the book & shake her more than once!! I mean Adam is this super hot guy! Just make a move already!! LOL Just when we least expect it things go way wrong, which is always funny as hell, then way right(that makes you go “awwwww”!

Love In Between by Sandi Lynn-Review

Love in Between
Love In Between by Sandi Lynn
Review by Jenny

4-4.5 Heartwarming STARS

This is the 1st book I’ve read by Sandi Lynn & OMG where has she been all my life?!! This book was so captivating! I was so drawn in by the characters and story! It’s a “feel good” story as I call it, where most of the book it’s heart warming!

It starts with Lily. She is a strong, loving, caring, hot woman who happens to get her heart broken on her wedding day by her sister, fiancé & mother, leaving her broken. Lily runs. She runs till she’s in the town with her 2 bffs, Gretchen & Giselle. We meet Sam & Luke, Lily’s neighbor. Luke is super hot, loving, caring & also broken. (I’ve added Luke to my book boyfriends list)! The combination of the two were astonishing! I love how Sandi has many twists going on, yet still manages to quickly resolve the issue and gets to the point! Not only was the main characters insanely awesome but I love the other characters also!

I loved the emotion this book brought! From the pain & hurt of heartache, abandonment & betrayal to the smiles & joys of love, passion & adoration! There is a second book coming soon but thankfully Sandi didn’t leave a huge cliffhanger! Awesome job!

Below Unforgiven by Kimberly Stedronsky

BUcover
Synopsis:
Vivian Hale doesn’t cope. She runs.

Spending the summer in small town Pennsylvania, working for minimum wage in the old trailer-turned-video-store, Vivian longs to move on after her world came crashing down around her. She’s given up on her acting dream and is willing to do whatever it takes to make enough money to get a place of her own and start over- anything, of course, but sacrifice her pride.

Oscar winning, LA director Keaton Thorne is back home for the first time in seven years, determined to survive one weekend with his family. As best man in his little brother’s wedding, he has one job- show up with his gorgeous wife and prove to everyone in the small town that he’s better than his father had ever been.

When Keaton makes her a clichéd offer that she just can’t refuse, Vivian tries to protect her heart. She knows the difference between right and wrong.

Between moral and immoral…

Between acting… and reality.

One weekend. One man.

One yes.
Review by Jenny!!
4 awesome stars!!

I was one of the lucky ones to get an arc for an honest review. Kimberly did NOT disappoint!! This book was fantastic! It was fast paced & full of emotion. Also, really well written.

It starts off with Vivian & Mathew. Viv’s the young thriving soon-to-be actress that finds herself pregnant for an older teacher, Mathew. Mathew is loving, caring, careful, gentle. After a tragedy strikes, Viv does what she does best….runs.

Working several jobs to make ends meet, Viv decides to take a job offer for a weekend with her bosses brother, Keaton Thane, Hollywood director. Keaton is so different than Mathew. He’s careless, spontaneous, rude, passionate, forward and gets what he wants. Agreements are made & walls are put up between the 2 but love had a different idea! Their version on Pretty Woman minus the sex, will help them both in the long run! No one expects what is to come! Neither was ready for this! The intimate scenes were OMG so hot, steamy & passionate! Even when nothing happened, the build up was breathe taking!

After the weekend, Viv has a decision! A big one! Finding herself in a similar situation as a year ago, she has to decide which guy she loves or loves the most?!! Will this new thing that came to light sway her decision?? Will she just run again?!

It was going great! Viv seemed like she knew what she wanted & had no problem getting it or expressing that! Then at the very end, it’s like she can’t decide because she don’t want to hurt either of them. So it ends with a HUGE cliffhanger! Viv is going meet up with Keaton but Mathew insists he’s going with her?!! I’m anxious to read the next one!! I can’t wait to see how this turns out!

Permanent Lines by Ashley Wilcox Blog Tour

Permanent Lines Tour Banner
Synopsis:
Merrick Drake.

Bartender, dirt bike racer, and far from settling down…until that one race, and that one girl that changed everything.

Amelia Driscoll.

Amelia took Merrick by surprise, bringing out emotions that he never knew existed. Amelia stole his heart…

Only to break it.

When fate puts Merrick and Amelia back together, it doesn’t come without a price- it comes with vengeance, determination, and putting his life on the line for the one he loves.

But, how much is Merrick willing to put on the line to have a future with no reason to hide? In the end, fate will decide…

Who’s permanent.

Review by Tina:
4 Awesome stars!!

I received an ARC copy of Permanent Lines. I’m giving this book 4 stars, When I first started reading I was amazed at how much the F word was used. Don’t get me wrong I have no problem with cursing in any book I read, but I just find in the first half of the book it was used a lot.

Merrick Drake, has a love for dirt bike racing & he’s good at it. He also owns a bar. He’s built & has tats a real good looking man & has no intentions of settling down any time soon. He pretty much has his life together. Then during a motor cross he meets Amelia beautiful, sweet & she also loves dirt bike racing. They hit it off & hangout at his bar with friends & they spend the night & the next day just being together. Then she’s leaves he doesn’t see or hear from her in months. No phone calls, no text it’s like she vanished as if she never existed. Then one night on a double date there she is standing in front of him. As their eyes connect he gets up and walks out. He’s so confused & hurt he feels bad that he left but he just doesn’t understand, so later that night he goes to talk to her. She tries to tell him he can’t be there and that she will meet him later. They meet & then all the drama unfolds she’s into deep & want’s out of the relationship she is in but she can’t just leave. You just don’t get up & walk away from the mob.

I honestly liked this book, It had a little bit of drama, suspense, & showed how far someone will go to be with the person that captured his heart from the moment they met. It was a different kind of book for me & the first one from by Ashley Wilcox, I’m glad I had the opportunity to read it. I look forward to reading more from Ashley Wilcox.

Draw Me In by Megan Squires Blog Tour

DrawMeInTourBanner2

Draw Me In by Megan Squires
Publication date: January 7th 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Synopsis:

He’s a young, up and coming businessman with the keys to his family’s Italian wine enterprise.

I’m a fine arts student, navigating life in the Big Apple, my pencil and sketchpad in hand.

We meet. We fall in love.

But it’s not that story.

Sometimes, by a rare gift of fate, two lives cross paths. And hey, if that happens to occur when staring at Michelangelo’s naked masterpiece, even better. We can tell our future children how a seventeen-foot tall marble guy named David brought us together.

But there’s always more to a relationship than its beginning and ever after. In life, there’s a whole lot of backstory. There are ex-fiancés and hot roommates and family members whose advice continues, even beyond the grave.

When you say you love someone, it’s never just that one person you’re saying it to. And it’s never just that one moment that sets everything in motion.

There is always more that draws you in.

2 AMAZING 5 STAR REVIEWS!!
REVIEW BY TINA:
5 STARS!!

Perfect title for this book it definitely Drew Me In. I’m just a romantic at heart & to read a book that can change my emotions with each flip of a page is exciting. Jules is a beautiful person inside & out. She’s funny, clumsy & she knows what she want’s & I loved that she worked at a coffee shop!

Leo well let’s just say he’s a dream. A dream I didn’t want to wake up from. He wasn’t afraid to show his emotions. I didn’t want the story to end. Together Leo & Julies are perfect together they complete each other. Just for the record OMG the scene on the street/alley took my breath away! Love Megan Squires

REVIEW BY JENNY:
5 STARS!!
This book was phenomenal!

Jules loves art & drawing. She coincidently “runs” into Leo, the Italian businessman. The connection is electric & instantaneous. Fast forward months later, they “run” into each other again. I love this book so much bc it’s real! Jules is one of my fav female roles bc she’s ordinary, clumsy, funny & straight to the point! She knows what she likes & wants & goes after it! Leo, OMG is super hot & a real man! He’s confident but not arrogant! We watch their bond & love grow page by page. After landing a job with Leo, she goes to Italy with him to his family’s place. There we really see things blossom.

But secrets are revealed. New secrets are made. She is forced to go back home & we watch the walls go up. Till one day, when she least expected it, everything’s revealed! She knows everything now! Will they find each other again? Will love be enough? Can they get past the past?? Amazing work by Megan!! A must read for sure!!
