Ava Gilmore has the perfect life. She’s surrounded by people who love her, she’s having sex on a regular basis and her Coach bag collection just grew by three. The problem? She’s expected to follow in her family’s footsteps at Seduction and Snacks, working with sex toys and baked goods. 

Ava loves vibrators and cupcakes as much as the next person, she’d just rather play with them than sell them. With her shopping addiction reaching an all time high and her credit card bills piling up, Ava decides to put her obsession to good use and start a fashion blog. But she has one other problem - the guy she’s having sex with has a My Little Pony addiction.

While dealing with her family’s disappointment and confusion over her choices, she finds support in the unlikeliest of places – Tyler Branson. Tyler has slowly wormed his way into her bed, her a$$ and her heart and he refuses to leave. Tyler has his own family problems to deal with and for the first time ever, Ava finds herself feeling bad for the annoying, immature guy and chanting “Friendship is magic!” during the sex she’d swore to stop having with him.

Ava needs to get her life in order once and for all before she finds herself doing something she never wanted to do – fall in love with a Brony.

They say some things must be broken before they can be fixed. But when Michaela hoped to cast doubt on the Aethere, she never thought things would fall apart like they did.

Even amidst the devastation on Earth, Michaela struggles to restore her faith in Gabriel.

Outside, nearly all the Nephilim were gathered on the front porch. They stepped aside for Michaela as she made her way down the steps. It was easy to see what they were looking at. The sky was growing dark, nearly black along the horizon of the farthest fields. But Michaela’s attention was on something else. She recognized them immediately. The Archangels landed lightly on the gravel and walked toward the house. Their wings were white and brutally bright in the snapping air. Ophaniel’s beautiful platinum hair twisted in the wind. Michaela recognized Simiel’s easy smile. Raphael looked even more serious than usual, his bulk taking up twice the room as the others. Uriel stalked slightly behind the others, her hand wound tight around Zarachiel’s, who walked slowly with his head down. It didn’t take them long to reach the group. The Nephilim watched the Archangels carefully, their weariness ingrained from centuries of being hunted. Their anxiety was only kept at bay by Iris, who stood among them, smiling and beckoning the angels closer. Raphael found Michaela in the crowd. “You better get the livestock in the barn,” he said, the warning clear in his voice. “Why?” The Nephilim parted around her, outlining a clear path between her and the Archangels, who didn’t come any closer. They regarded her with empty faces. Even Simiel averted his eyes. Michaela had only been able to guess up until this point, but now it was clear even her Archangels blamed her for releasing the hybrids and the chaos it had caused. If they knew about Gabriel signing over his soul, they likely hated her for causing that too. There was a divide between them as wide as a river. No one crossed. Their hollow presence sapped any relief at their return. She squared her shoulders. “Why?” she asked again. Raphael glanced over his shoulder at the approaching wall of darkness. “Locusts.”

Book Review: The Hamden Trilogy by W. Ferraro

The Hamden Trilogy by W. Ferraro

Author Bio:

I live in New England with my young family. I'm a stay at home mom to two very active children. For all of you who are familiar with the stress of this job, I decided to complete an item on my bucket list and write a book. When I'm not writing, you will find me cooking, reading, shopping or being silly with the kids.

Three of Hearts

Mae Turney is searching for the type of life and happiness she has never known but has only dreamed about. She's fortunate enough to find a great opportunity to live in an exterior apartment of a beautiful lake house in a small town in Vermont. When she realizes the apartment and scenery are not the only gorgeous appeal but the home owner, Seth Finn, is as well, she puts it all on the line for the chance at love. When she becomes comfortable and confident in her own skin and sexuality, Mae realizes that this place and this man is exactly what she came looking for. Knowing Seth and his three children are as special as they come, Mae bets the house, and prays she and her gamble are enough.

Our Review:
Mae Turney is the main character and has just moved to Hamden. She rents an apartment that is attached to Seth Finn’s house and that is how she meets him. Seth is not all that ready for a relationship, because in his own way, he is grieving and has three children to take care of. Aiden, Connor, and Megan adore Mae and Seth gets mad at Mae for trying to help out.

There is many emotions in and between Mae and Seth, but in the end, love wins. Doesn't it always.

This is the first book of Hamden, and it introduces Seth and Mae, along with Seth’s friends who are main characters in the next two books. It is in third person, and sometimes, that gets a little confusing to me, as I have no clue whose perspective it is in. Three of Hearts pulls the reader in from the beginning and you can’t come out. You stay stuck until the end. For me, that end was at the end of Three of Diamonds.

Three of Spades

Dylan Cross is the type of man that enjoys everything female, and enjoy it he does, but always on his terms. However, his terms are pushed to their limit when Natalie Parker proposes an offer; teach her and her delectable little body, all about sex and desire.

There is one catch. He has to play the part of Natalie's madly in love boyfriend for her dying mother. Dylan signs on, and finds that separating the two is harder than he thought. Natalie's days of shyness and lack of confidence come to a quick close as she learns what her body craves and demands in the bedroom. 

Soon, Dylan becomes the student as Natalie teaches him things he didn't even know he wanted. Will Hamden's notorious playboy, bachelor be able to keep calling the shots, or will he find that, he, himself, is just another player at the card game of life, as we all are?

Our Review
In this second installment of Hamden, Dylan and Natalie are the main characters. Dylan, one of Seth’s best friends and partners in the business, is a ladies man, but he never stays put with one woman. Until Natalie. Just like with Mae and Seth, Natalie and Dylan have their issues.

Being with someone that is known to sleep with a woman and then leave them, Natalie doesn’t want to call their agreement a relationship like Dylan does. She made the decision to just have a fake relationship for show and Dylan was the one she thought was perfect. But then the agreement, becomes a real relationship when they fall for each other.
Three of Spades was my favorite of the Hamden books. 

Three of Diamonds

Lola Nash’s life edges on safe and controlled, containing few people; her brother, Boyd, a handful of friends and the facility for special needs children where she volunteers, called Aaron’s Place. However, a chance meeting shatters her control when she learns someone else’s closely held secret. The kind of secret causing her explicit and sexy dreams, all centering around Wes Thompson; known as Adonis in the ultra-exclusive world of the sex club, Olympus. Wes is intrigued by the voluptuous beauty who won’t give him the time of day. Like the God he emulates, he has never been the type to give in when he wants something or someone; Lola is exactly what he wants. Is Lola the one that can bring a God to his knees or will Wes conquer her, and then walk away as planned? Is the chance at love worth the cost of giving up everything you hold important? When the cards are down, will Wes and Lola call or fold?

Our Reveiw:
Lola and Wes. This is their story. Wes is Dylan and Seth’s other best friend. Wes has a secret that his friends don’t know about. Lola knows his secret. Lola has a little brother, Boyd, who has down syndrome. Boyd befriends Wes when Wes goes to the apartment Lola and Boyd live in so he could talk to Lola about the project she is to help him with for a place that Boyd goes to and where Lola volunteers.

Lola hates Wes and Wes falls for her. He tries to tell her how to deal with Boyd and she won’t talk to him. Lola and Wes grow close and then fall apart. But that part upsets Boyd who thinks Wes is the greatest person and his friend. The controversy between Wes and Lola ends when Boyd disappears and Wes finds him. Lola finally accepts her feelings and they all get along.

This Hamden book also has the view points of the other characters besides Lola and Wes a few times throughout the novel to show what they do when Lola and Wes are in the same room in different parts of it.

Blog Tour: Shame on You by Tara Sivec

Shame On You (Fool Me Once #1)

by Tara Sivec

Release Date: February 25, 2014


War veteran Kennedy O’Brien is in the business of sticking it to the man—or at least any man who tries to cross a woman. After she returned home from Afghanistan and caught her husband in bed with the nanny, Kennedy lost her faith in men and started Fool Me Once Investigations with her two best friends. After all, there’s no better bounty hunter than a woman scorned.

When Kennedy takes a case to slap cuffs on a bail jumper turned dog-napper, she figures it’ll be an easy paycheck. But trouble has a way of finding Kennedy. Enter the last man on the planet she’d willingly choose as a partner: her cheating ex-husband’s best friend, Griffin Crawford.

As gorgeous as he is unwelcome, Griffin has always had a thing for Kennedy, and after keeping quiet about her ex’s cheating, he’ll do anything to earn back her trust. Whether or not she wants to admit it, Kennedy will need help as the case of the Chihuahua thief spirals out of control. Griffin may be just her man—in more ways than one.

My Review: 

Hell hath no fury like women scorn! Kennedy, Paige and Lorelei started Fool Me Once Investigations to stick it to sll the scummy men who have scorned them. If you are looking for an amazing Laugh Out Loud Romantic Comedy then this Is the book gofor you! 

Kennedy has a love for the chase, the adrenaline rush and hey...if you get to throw cuffs on someone. After being stuck on a case with her exes best friend Griffin, the fun begins! Yes he is sexy as hell....who doesn't love a hot guy with a flirty, arrogant attitude oh and a motorcycle!!! 

My Favorite Quotes:

"I might keep the jeans to replace the ones I ruined during my and Griffin's roll in the grass. Not to be confused with roll in the hay. Even though sometimes  I think I want to be confused with a roll in the hay. With Grifffin. Naked. In a bed. Or against a wall. Or on a kitchen table."

"Jesus. How about we just invite the whole damn neighborhood up here so they can see me half naked and post-orgasmic?"

"This guy says he'll pay fifteen hundred dollars to bust your back door, but I'm gonna tell him you're game. We can always fix it later. I didn't realize prostitutes made so much money for weird stuff. I thought they just gave happy endings. I'm in the wrong business. I should be a pimp."

"Fuck thebed. We Can do that later."

Tara Sivec is a USA Today best-selling author, wife, mother, chauffeur, maid, short-order cook, baby-sitter, and sarcasm expert. She lives in Ohio with her husband and two children and looks forward to the day when they all three of them become adults and move out.

New Release: The Baby and The Bride by Laura Barnard

The Debt and The Doormat (Book 1) by Laura Barnard

Poppy and Jazz have been best friends from the first week of uni. Whenever these two get together trouble isn't far away and things haven’t changed much. When Jazz gets herself into financial trouble Poppy, being a good friend, offers to help. She instead ends up being talked into swapping lives, with Jazz insisting it will be good and help her get over her broken heart. 

Poppy is thrown into a new life, full of crazy housemates; there’s fitness freak Izzy, horrendously beautiful bitch Grace and the slightly gorgeous, if not incredibly grumpy Ryan. Quickly, with the help of Jazz, her life is thrown upside down. Madness ensues and her need to please everyone gets her in more trouble than she could ever imagine. 

Before she knows it she’s got a fake boyfriend and is hiding so many secrets she’s scared they’ll spill out any minute. With a bullying boss, a sex crazed colleague, a mental mother and three brothers each with their own dramas, life has gotten pretty difficult for Poppy. And all of this would be much easier, if she could just stop falling over. 

Will she get her life back to normal before her brother’s upcoming wedding? And will she want to?

The Bride and The Baby (Book 2) by Laura Barnard

Sequel to the #1 Amazon Best-Seller, The Debt & the Doormat (available for FREE) 
Poppy and Jazz’s lives sound perfect on paper. Jazz has a new baby and Poppy’s getting married. But their realities are very different. 

Poppy must strive to keep her cool new job with crazy hours, while trying to keep Ryan happy. Before she knows it her wedding has got out of control, thanks to her mother, the runners at work are bullying her, her parents are in financial difficulty and she’s doubting everything and everyone she ever knew. 

Meanwhile Jazz is struggling with motherhood, something a credit card won’t fix. Why won’t this baby give her a break? Will Jazz be able to cope before she loses it? 

And will Poppy make it down the aisle? Will Ryan even be waiting?

Suddenly, out of nowhere, someone jumps in front of me and puts their arms round me. I don’t have time for my body to react as I lose my footing, dragging both of us down to the floor. My headphones get yanked out on the way down.

I gasp for air as my reality settles on me. Oh my God. I’m being attacked. I’m being raped.

I start whistling with all of my might and turn my rape alarm on, throwing it away from me. My God, it's SO loud!


I close my eyes and continue to whistle. My heart is beating so hard I’m sure he can hear it. My attacker loosens their grip on me, but all I can do is lay there in shock, my eyes scrunched shut. If I don’t look at him I won't be able to identify him and then hopefully he won't have to kill me. I spit the whistle out of my mouth and start shouting.


I clench my body up in complete fright. My skin crawls from the thought of someone touching me. Please let Ryan save me. Please God, just let it be over quick.

‘You’re mental!  Stop this!’ I hear from over the alarm.

I look up to see my attacker pull down his hood and begin to reveal his face.

‘No!’ I shout.

I don't want to see his face. If I see his face he’ll definitely kill me. He’ll know I’ll be able to identify him and won't waste any time in smashing my head in with a rock. I look around on the floor desperately for any kind of weapon. A big rock comes into focus. I scramble for it and smash him over the head with it.

He goes down like a sack of potatoes.

‘Fuck!’ he shouts, as he pulls the rest of the hood from his face.

Oh my God. It’s Richard!  My brother Richard. What the fuck have I done?
