21 Stolen Kisses - cover


When I first met him I resisted.
Like any forbidden love, I told myself he was a crush, and it would pass.
That was a lie. It never faded.

And I never expected he would fall for me just as hard.

There were so many reasons that should have kept us apart, least of all, the decade that separated us.
Growing up in New York City, I learned early on that love is a double-edged sword.
Love broke up my parents, love took away my friends, and love -- the big, intense, never-been-like-this-beforelove -- landed me in therapy.
Now I'm heading to college, and it's time to give love a clean slate again. But, can I really start over when he's still in my life?
Because the one man I've always wanted, is also the only guy I absolutely can't have…
And he wants me just as fiercely.

Can I settle for anything less than the love of my life?

Nowhere But Here RDL Banner

We are absolutely thrilled to bring you the Release Day Launch for Katie McGarry's NOWHERE BUT HERE! NOWHERE BUT HERE is a Young Adult Contemporary Romance and is a part of Katie McGarry’sThunder Road Series, published by Harlequin Teen. Grab your copy today!!

Amazon ** Kobo ** BAM ** Barnes & Noble ** iBooks ** IndieBound


An unforgettable new series from acclaimed author Katie McGarry about taking risks, opening your heart and ending up in a place you never imagined possible 

Nowhere But Here - coverSeventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she's curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn't mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both.

Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They're the good guys. They protect people. They're…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club's most respected member—is in town, he's gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it's his shot at his dream. What he doesn't count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down.

No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.

Sacrifice Cover Reveal by Adriana Locke


Title: Sacrifice

Author: Adriana Locke

Cover Design: K23 Design

Release Date: July 13, 2015



My life changed forever the night my husband died. 

I was left with a shattered heart, a heap of bills, and our daughter, EVERLEIGH. I don’t want to rely on anyone, least of all CREW GENTRY. He’s my first love and the man who almost destroyed me, the man who has let me down every time I’ve needed him. 

But when tragedy strikes a second time, Crew just might be my only hope. 


My life changed forever the night my brother died.

I was left with a guilty conscience, a pile of mistakes, and little else. I take care of JULIA GENTRY, my brother’s widow and the love of my life, and their daughter. I know she doesn’t want my help, but she gets it anyway. I owe her that.

When another disaster hits, I’m given the opportunity to make things right. I’m taking it. I'm willing to sacrifice it all.





“She’s been missing him a lot lately.”

Julia’s voice is barely a whisper and my chest constricts. Our conversations don’t normally make it to discussing Gage unless we’re already arguing. The fact that she just brought it up shocks me and I’m not comfortable with it. I don’t know how to take it. I feel my jaw pulse with frustration and scramble to change the subject again.  “Why is it so chilly in here?” 

Her smile disappears and she tugs her sweatshirt nervously. “I didn’t know it was.”

“How can you possibly not know?” I start to the thermostat across the room when she clears her throat.

“The heater isn’t working right. I asked Lane to come by and look at it earlier this week.”

“And he hasn’t been here yet?” I shoot her a look and she shakes her head. “He’ll be here tonight.” I dig my cell outta my pocket.

“Crew, don’t. Please. The last time you called my landlord he was a complete jerk to me for a couple of months. I just got on good terms with him again.”

I scroll through my contacts list, looking for his name. 

“Crew ...” I know her doe-eyes are pleading with me. I also know if I look up at her, I’ll be somewhat inclined to give in.

So I don’t.



Adriana Locke lives and breathes books. After years of slightly obsessive relationships with the flawed bad boys created by other authors, Adriana has created her own.

Adriana resides in the Midwest with her family. She spends a large amount of time playing with her kids, drinking coffee, and cooking. She loves to be outside in the sunshine and always has a piece of candy in her pocket. 

Her first novel, The Exception, was released in 2014. The followup, The Perception, was released in March 2015. Both books follow the same characters, but can be read as standalone novels.
Sacrifice, a novel unrelated to the others, will go live on July 13, 2015.

Book Two in the Consolation Duet

I fell in love with Liam only to be left shattered into a million pieces. Again. The idea of being without him cripples me but the reality is, he’s gone. 

He doesn’t understand and I can’t make him. 

If only he’d see the conviction behind my words—then he’d still be here.

Christy's 5 star review!  
Conviction (The Consolation Duet, #2)Conviction by Corinne Michaels
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
5 stars!!!


 photo 3ea6d04a-a824-4331-a98c-d09a4fd23796_zps3gsq4wmp.jpgAfter reading Consolation, I was desperate for Conviction. I had to know what happened next. I needed to find out what direction Natalie’s journey would take. It could have went so many different directions. After finishing the story, I think that Corinne handled this delicate situation perfectly.


 photo 7366e28c-df7a-4cca-90df-7786b2d856ec_zpsn1pclpqd.jpg

Natalie’s life has been a whirlwind of crazy. And it’s taken even more unexpected turns as of late. I loved the way our leading lady handed things. I respected her and admired that she had so much strength in this hard spot. I saw so much growth in her character from the first book. 

 photo 049c5938-e8cc-4063-987f-b1a9b4246a8d_zpsadf8vctf.jpgAny spoilers for this story would be such an injustice to anyone who is wanting to read it, so that’s why I’m being so tight lipped about the actual story. It’s one you’ll want to go into without knowing how it’s going to go. And if you haven’t had the pleasure of reading Consolation yet, I most definitely don’t want to spoil that either.


 photo c44ef2cc-eafb-4ed8-8a1a-c3b583fe9a83_zpsjtgxjr3y.jpgConviction is a captivatingly beautiful story that gripped me from the very beginning. It has a fantastic heroine, a wonderful hero and the writing is superb.

Once again, Corinne Michaels left me emotional in the best way. I laughed, I cried and I felt. I truly loved this story. The ending was perfect and I can’t recommend The Consolation Duet enough!

Corinne Michaels is an emotional, witty, sarcastic, and fun loving mom of two beautiful children. She’s happily married to the man of her dreams and is a former Navy wife. After spending months away from her husband while he was deployed, reading and writing was her escape from the loneliness.

Both her maternal and paternal grandmothers were librarians, which only intensified her love of reading. After years of writing short stories, she couldn’t ignore the call to finish her debut novel, Beloved. Her alpha Navy SEALs are broken, beautiful, and will steal your heart.

Afraid to Fly by SL Jennings

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000035_00037]

Afraid To Fly

The Fearless Series: Book Two

S.L. Jennings


I’d like to tell you that I’m ok.

That the meaningless sex with countless women has somehow numbed the pain. That it’s deciphered the constant confusion in my head. Eased the self-hatred that sinks into my gut every time I look in the mirror.

I’d like to tell you that time heals all wounds.

That we evolve and grow into well-adjusted, stable adults, set on a path to right the world’s wrongs. That we are not our past…we are not our pain. 

I want to tell you all those things. Hell, I want to believe all those things. But I’d be lying. I’m good at that. Living a lie is the only way I truly know how to survive.

But the day I saw her, I stopped surviving. I stopped existing. And for the first time in 24 years, I started living. 

She brought me back to life. Set me free and sent my soul soaring. Made this useless shell of a man feel like…something. Something whole and real and good.

She saved me.

Although she believes I wasn’t even worth saving.

Christy's 5 star review! 

Afraid to Fly (Fearless, #2)Afraid to Fly by S.L. Jennings

“Desire is just concentrated madness of the body and soul.” she whispered. “Do you want my crazy?”

 photo 608e2735-71ba-4d7c-8bfd-3a80a3b9aab1_zpstxyuk5pg.jpg

When I first read Fear of Falling, I remember being immediately intrigued by Kami’s best friend Dom’s character. I loved how kind and supportive he was with Kami, even though you could tell he had a lot of issues of his own. I wanted to see what those issues were. I wanted to see what made Dom tick. It’s been a while since I’ve read FoF, and I was very excited when I heard this book was being released and made sure to read it straight away. I’m happy I did. I loved it even more than the first.

 photo 7911d4e5-a082-4613-826f-51d6ba118d30_zpsd2wwpfbh.jpg
My heart broke for Dom. Going into his past and reading about what happened to him as a child was not easy. No one should ever have to experience anything like that. Dom didn’t always cope in the healthiest ways, but it was easy to understand why he did it. Why he was the way he was. Even with some unhealthy coping, Dom is a stand up guy. I admire his character and the way he choses to take the bad that happened to him and devoting his life to making sure those same things don’t happen to other children. People who devote their lives to jobs that are too difficult for most amaze me. It’s so unselfish and giving.

 photo 929cdcc5-4e8f-4e6c-ac2d-529d81c735df_zpslywxmafr.jpgRaven is a girl who has a past as well. It’s so different than Dom’s, but it’s still there. She works two jobs to support her brother, who Dom is a mentor to. Toby (Raven’s brother) is a special character. I loved how there were so many wonderful characters in this story. There were times I wondered what Raven’s real motivations were. I didn’t know where she was coming from and what she was about in a lot of this book, but once it clicked… it really clicked. I got it. I understood her.


This story isn’t all about the love. One of the things I love most about this book is the relationships within the story. These characters aren’t just friends. They are a family. A real true family full of loving and supportive people. Just like in FoF, I loved the dynamic of Dom, Kami and Angel.
Between me, Angel and Kami, we were more nuts than Almond Joy, and we still managed to find each other in this big, wide, crazy world.

 photo 3180ea96-8bf3-48af-8be4-bc5e2f666e92_zpswhr9a5lw.jpgThere is love. Even when Dom and Raven might not have wanted to admit it, their love started much earlier than either one thought. And it only  developed as they became friends of sorts and Raven started to trust Dom. That attraction was always there, but the trust took time. When it finally happened and they were able to open up to one another, it was a glorious thing.


“I want to be anywhere else too… with you.”

Sometimes the happiest endings don’t have the most beautiful journeys. This story was raw, it was real and at times intense. I loved the strength of these characters and how they fought to get through their issues and overcome their pasts. Jenning’s writing is wonderful. She excels at these emotional and captivating stories.

 photo 5e71b08f-74a9-41f8-bcb8-4f408f036dc6_zps7ofnpezl.jpgAfraid to Fly is a powerful read. It’s got characters who are broken and damaged but find a way to move past it. It’s a love story, but it’s much more than that. Books like this make me think, make me feel, and inspire me. I highly recommend this book and I hope there is more to come with this series.
You are not your past. You are not your pain. You are kindness and strength and beauty. You are love.


“You’re bigger than my fear, bigger than my pain. You’re the most perfect part of me.”


It was if my body had known what my soul needed to mend itself from the verbal assault that had left me open and bleeding. Sex was that healing balm for me. And this was exactly the place where I could find it.

None of the dancers here were prostitutes, and I never paid to get laid. Ever. They fucked me because they wanted me. And I fucked them because I needed them. It was an even trade.

Contrary to popular belief, I didn’t stick my dick in just anything, and other than Cherri, had only been intimate with two other girls there: Skylar, a hot sophomore at UNC Charlotte, stripping her way through college, and Velvet, a tattooed, purple-haired vixen from England who fucked like a porn star and cursed like a sailor.

Right now, I needed Velvet. If anyone could make me forget the last twenty minutes, Raven’s razor-sharp words and myself, it was her.

My legs carried me inside, despite the numbness I felt. I didn’t want to be here, but I needed to be. And once I had the soft silkiness and warmth of a woman’s skin against me, I’d feel a helluva lot better. Luckily, Velvet was there for a day shift, working the lunch crowd in her usual getup of velvet and chains. Today she wore a cut-out thonged romper that left little to the imagination. And that was fine by me. I was tired of thinking anyway.

“Hey love,” she smiled as I approached. Her lips were painted a deep, dark eggplant purple that almost looked black. I’d have the color smeared all over me within the hour, most of it in places invisible to the public.

I didn’t waste any time. I didn’t have it in me to go through the motions and pretend I was here for anything other than sex. I leaned in close to her ear, letting my lips brush her earlobe in that sensual way I knew would get her hot, and whispered, “Back room in 10.” Then I quickly made my way to the bar to slam a shot of tequila.

She was there when I arrived, lounging on a plush loveseat with her heeled boots propped up on the arm. She looked at me with sin gleaming in her heavily lined eyes and gave me a slow, Cheshire grin. “Someone’s awfully anxious today.”

I was already loosening my tie as I stalked towards her and said, “Clothes off, boots on and get on your knees.”



Fear Of Falling

The Fearless Series: Book One

S.L. Jennings

 I can’t remember the last time I felt completely safe. Security seemed more like a luxury to me, reserved for those who were fortunate enough to have picture perfect childhoods. For those who didn’t bear the ugly scars that keep me bound in constant, debilitating fear. I’ve run from that fear my entire life. But when I met him, for once, I couldn’t run anymore.

He scared the hell out of me in a way that excited every fiber of my being. It wasn’t the tattoos or the piercings. It wasn’t the warmth that seemed to radiate from his frame and blanket me whenever he was near. It was just…him. The scary beautiful man that threatened to alter 23 years of routine and rituals, and make me face my crippling fear.

 My name is Kami and I am constantly afraid. And the thing that scares me the most is the very thing I want.

“Don’t worry,” he smiled, pulling me into the hard warmth of his chest. “I’ve got you. I’ll always catch you when you fall.”

And just like that, Blaine had staked his claim on the untouched part of me that no living soul had ever moved. He had captured every fear, every reservation, and crushed them in the palm of his inked hand.
