Worth the Fight, Book #1 (Each book a standalone)

Meet Liv Michaels
It may have been seven years, but I’d know him anywhere. Sure, he’s grown, filled out in all the right places, but his captivating blue eyes and cocky grin are exactly the way I remember. Even though I’d much rather forget.

Liv Michaels is almost there. She’s smart, determined and weeks away from landing the job she’s dreamed about for years. Time healed old wounds, even her broken heart from the devastation of being crushed by her first love.

Meet Vince Stone
Women love a fighter, especially a good one. Lucky for me, I’m damn good. But there’s one woman that isn’t interested. Not again, anyway. 

Vince ‘The Invincible’ Stone is every woman’s fantasy…strong, sexy, confident and completely in control. Growing up surrounded by chaos, he’s learned never to get too attached. Love will drag you down. He adores women, treats them well, puts their own needs before his own…for the night anyway. With the biggest fight of his life coming up, his focus should be on training.

When fate brings Vince & Liv back together again, there’s no denying the chemistry is still there. But can Vince erase the old scars their past left behind? Or will Liv hurt him instead?

SynopsisFrom the acclaimed bestselling author of Lost to You and When We Collide comes a new adult novel of one woman’s obsession: a man who’s as passionate as he is elusive—and as tempting as he is trouble.…

Consumed by Emily Snow is LIVE!

I feel like I have been waiting forever and a day for Consumed (Book #2) by Emily Snow to be released. LOVE LOVE LOVE rock God romance books.  Devoured (Book #1) was pretty intense.   This sequel looks pretty hot. Check out the synopsis, excerpt and series reading order below.  


ConsumedBookCover6x9-2 (3)
SynopsisNow that Lucas is back in her life, Sienna is sure the drama between them is over. But then he comes to her with a new offer: his band, Your Toxic Sequel, is going on tour and he wants her with him—working in wardrobe and as his girl.

Life on the road is a complete 180 from everything Sienna has ever known. Not only does she have to deal with Lucas’s band members, but she’s also forced to be around Cilla, the lead singer of Wicked Lambs. Still, despite horny band mates and a gorgeous rock goddess determined to sink her talons into Lucas, Sienna stays by his side.

Then the letters start to come—harassing messages from Lucas’s ex-wife, Sam.

At first, Sienna brushes them off, keeping Lucas in the dark because Sam is bad for his music. But after Sam’s contact turns personal and violent, Sienna has no other choice but to confront Lucas. If she’s ever going to understand the twisted pull Sam has on him, she has to know his secret. But when he finally reveals it, will they be able to survive the consequences? Or will it tear them apart, consuming them?


“Nice move, Mr. Wolfe,” I mutter under my breath. Tapping my foot rapidly against the floor, I wait for my suitcase to come around on the carousel. Once I locate it, I lug everything to a row of chairs nearby. It’s too hot for me to wait outside for some driver to arrive.

No sooner than my butt makes contact with the hard seat do I hear snippets of a conversation between two women who are walking in the direction of the taxi exit.

“ . . . I have all of their CDs. I could spot him from a mile away. It was definitely him, and you—you are stifling me!”

What the hell?

I twist around in time to witness the shorter woman with the black, asymmetrical bob narrow her chocolate brown eyes at the tall, leggy blonde.

There’s something deliciously perverse about staring through the clear glass. All of

Review & Promo Giveaway - In the Firelight by Sibylla Matilde

Check out my review and author giveaway of In The Firelight by Sibylla Matilde.  Thanks for fogging up my Kindle screen with this steamy book Sibylla (fanning self).

Title: In the Firelight

Author: Sibylla Matilde

Date of publication: December 19, 2013

***** Mature Content, Sexual Situations, Adult Situations, Strong Language *****

She found him on a snowy night. He sparked her desires and inflamed her dreams.

Independent and feisty, Shea Madison has a tussle on her hands. Living in and loving her quiet little

corner of Montana, she’s fiercely determined to fight a real estate developer trying to turn her quaint

little mountain town into a touristy ski resort. So, when an outsider shows up to study the effects on

the area, she instantly attempts to sway his impression… even if it means a little harmless flirting

with the enticing visitor.

Rhys Weland’s charade has one purpose—to bring the locals around to the idea of the resort,

primarily the ringleader, Ms. Shea Madison. Embroiled in his deception, he’s stunned by the feelings

she draws from deep inside him. Her integrity and sincerity quickly have him second-guessing his

twisted morals. Her spirit arouses his soul. Her sensuality steals his breath.

In the dark of the night, in the warmth of the fire, the passion smoldering between them combusts.

But just when it all seems to make sense, one small stubborn mistake shreds the fragile bond

between them. Will an impetuous act reignite their flame, or will their love vanish like sparks in the

Kindle Crack Book Reviews- A Review of In The Firelight
In the FirelightIn the Firelight by Sibylla Matilde
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided in exchange for a fair and honest review. Spoiler- free review.  Stand alone. HEA. 4 – 4.25 stars.

Rhys is slick and sexy player type who is sent on a mission to Montana by his boss.  His boss wants him to use some of his infamous penis persuasion tactics to talk Shea into giving up her land. Shea is a fiercely independent loner who lives on a huge piece of property that he wants to develop into a ski resort. Rhys expected her to be an ogre mountain lumber jack type… and not the beautiful woman that he can’t get out of his mind. They have amazing chemistry and end up steaming up every cold spot in Shea’s sleepy Montana town, store, bedroom etc.  Rhys’ conscious starts to get the best of him.  He also begins to feel things he has never felt before for any woman.  Rhys also starts to discover himself! (That's a lot of starts:) Will he chose they sexy mountain babe with a potty mouth or go for the fat paycheck and let his boss use his as a man whore pawn and help him get the land?

In the Firelight is a fast and steamy read.  At times I found the sex scenes a little repetitious and would have liked a little more angst. I loved Shea!  It’s rare to find a solid book with a smart, independent/non doormat heroine! Over all this is a steamy, sexy fun and fast read.  It’s my second Sibylla Matilde M book and definitely not my last!  Excellent epilogue.

4-4.25 stars! Review to follow with tour. Another great book from SM.

About Sibylla Matilde
Sibylla Matilde grew up in the mountain valleys of Southwest Montana exploring the dusty Old West gold country on

the back of a horse. She attended a two-room schoolhouse beginning in 1st grade & had the same teacher until she

changed schools after 7th. Beginning at about age 12, Sibylla discovered historical romance, feeding off of work of

Jude Deveraux & Lisa Kleypas. She loves a book that can make the reader run the gamut of emotions, from the sweet

glow of new love to gut-wrenching heartache. She is a true romantic & always has stories floating around in her head,

living in a fantasyland until she writes them down to free them.

Music is her emotional trigger. Growing up with a Wagnarian-loving mother, Sibylla was raised to treasure music

that digs deep into the psyche, drawing out elation, sorrow, grief, desire. The soundtrack to her life includes many

genres spanning centuries. She looooooooves Thirty Seconds to Mars (rather obsessively, actually... but, really, how

can you NOT be crazy about this guy!? Jared Leto. Shhh. ) & pimps them out to all her friends through Spotify. She

also delights in Met Opera HD broadcasts at her local movie theater & hopes (listening Met?) to someday see Diana

Damrau reprise her role as Mozart’s Queen of the Night in Die Zauberflöte.

Sibylla lives with her husband and hero who saved her from her own calamitous, young-adult self. He makes her

laugh daily, even when things are tough. He's proved to her that love really can heal a shattered soul. In 18 years, they

have never had a fight, although argue regularly with their two teenage kids who have, unfortunately, inherited their

father’s quick wit (unfortunate as it is a quick wit that Sibylla, herself, definitely does not possess – there is a reason

she is a writer & not a stand-up comedian). They live a quiet life with their two weird little rescued Chiweenies. Wait…
teenagers & little yap-dogs? OK, maybe not so quiet.

Raw by Belle Aurora Release Day Review & Giveaway

Title: Raw
Author: Belle Aurora
Genre: New Adult Dark Romance
Release Date: January 3, 2014
Hosted by: Love Between the Sheets Promotions

*Author Note: This is not a love story. This is a story of love gone wrong.*

Growing up the way I did, you’d think I’d be more screwed up than what I actually am. Soon as I turned sixteen, I left that bump in the road I called home and took my chances on the street. Best decision I ever made. Now, at the age of twenty six, I’m educated, employed and damn good at my job. My friends have become my family. Like me, they know what it’s like to grow up
unloved. But the saying is true. The world makes way for those who know where they are going. That’s me. I know where I’m going and I’ll get there eventually. On my own terms and at my own pace.
But then there’s him. I feel his eyes on me. I see him hiding in plain sight. He watches me.
He makes me feel.
It’s unconventional.
But it’s real.
I’m sure you’re wondering how a person falls in love with their stalker.
So am I.
This isn’t a story.
This is my life.

Kindle Crack Book Reviews Spoiler Free Thoughts:
RawRaw by Belle Aurora
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided in exchange for a fair and honest review. Spoiler- free.  4.75- 5.00 stars.

How do you fall in love with your stalker?    If I had a stalker…  I would be calling 911. Alexa (Lexi) Ballentine…. not so much.  Twitch (Lexi’s stalker) is like a snot at the end of her finger that she just can’t shake off.

My spoiler free take: Belle Aurora’s synopsis of Raw is dead on -- this is a love story gone wrong.  Twitch and Lexi’s story is raw, dark and bit demented like Twitch. This is definitely not a hearts and flowers type of book that makes you think of love songs.  If you are looking for a sweet romance…this is not it.

Lexi and Twitch’s world’s collide and they finally meet.  Lexi is a social worker who wants to help heal her hot stalker from his tortured past.  She doesn’t know much about the moody tattooed control freak…but she knows his past wasn’t pretty.  The “13” tat on his face is a dead giveaway.   Lexi slowly extracts little nuggets of information about his twisted past.  What Lexi doesn’t know is Twitch is hell bent on hurting her…controlling her… and making sure she never forgets him again.

At times I thought that certain aspects of their relationship didn’t carry over from the beginning to the end of the story.  I was wrong…it all made sense. Twitch’s ever changing behavior becomes crystal clear towards the end.  Belle did a fantastic job unraveling this story from alternating POV.   I have to give her huge props for her character development.  Holy hell the stuff in Twitch’s head alone could be its own novella (hint hint).  There were a few times that I wanted to reach in my Kindle and smack Lexi for some of her baddddd judgment calls.    I love that Belle’s writing got under my skin.  By the way Willing Captive fans will love Nox’s storyline integration. BOOM…the end.  The ending is insane!!!  There has to be a Raw (Book #2). That’s all I’m going to say because I am not going to give this crazy story away.  One-click this one.  More Aussie Kindle Crack!

Staring down at my chest, she takes a step closer to me and whispers miserably, “I’m
here to let Brad fuck me.” My cheek ticks and head implodes. She steps closer to me
to add, “He’s going to fuck me. Fuck me til I forget you. Til I forget I ever met you.
He’s helping me drown you out and I like when I’m not thinkin’ about you.”
She looks into my eyes and repeats on a whisper, “You’re poison.”

Excerpt From End Of Innocence
When it all comes down to it, there’s only one thing to get a man like Brad for his birthday. A man that has everything, can buy anything, and wants for nothing. Either a) something he has been deprived of, or b) something he could never have too much of.
I doubt Brad has been deprived of much of anything his entire life. Love. He hasn’t had enough love. It is something I see at odd times, times when he cradles my face in his hand and a flicker of worry goes through his eyes. He, at those moments, reveals how terrified he is of losing me. I don’t know how to package love, how to giftwrap that emotion and hand it to Brad. I tell him often, as often as I can. But I know that the more in love he falls, the more afraid he is that I will leave. That I will turn into his mother and choose another reality over this one. I have committed to him. That should be enough of a reassurance.
