The One Thing 
When everything falls apart, he’s the one thing that holds me together.


Ginger Teague may seem like your typical Hollywood actress with the famous boyfriend, designer clothes, money, and hit TV show, but constantly being in the public eye has its downside.
People seem more interested in her chaotic relationship with her on again/ off again boyfriend than her acting career,and Ginger isn’t dealing with her new found fame in a way she always envisioned. She masks her unhappiness with too many parties and an unhealthy habit of binge drinking. As much as she wants love, men find her as a pretty amusement, not the type of girl you take home to mom and dad.
When she meets Caspian Norwood, they quickly begin a regimen of flirty emails.
He’s a struggling musician that doesn’t quite fit her idea of the perfect boyfriend.
He’s older, mysterious, cultured, knows exactly what to say and do in all the right situations, and Ginger can’t help falling for him. But the world is against them, pushing them apart, and it’s beginning to feel as if they are only meant to be friends.

Review by Mazzy Boss Lady

I was lucky enough to beta read this book, and it was one that I was eagerly awaiting.

This is Ginger's story and we really find out what is beneath all that facade she puts one. What we find is a broken woman who feels like she has to put on a brave face everyday in order to accomplish anything.

I think that she feels like she doesn't deserve any better than she has already.

Meet Caspian, I really loved him here in this book and he really felt real and Ginger deserves someone like him.

This is a really good read, and you will wanting the next book as to find out the details of their lives.

Review by Alison Obsessive One Clicker


* I was given an ARC for an honest Review*

I was so excited to read Time Will Tell by Chantal Fernando. I couldn't put it down I read it in one setting. I fell in love with the characters and the story was amazing. In Time Will Tell we meet Xander who is an alpha tattooed hottie that is staying with a friend after losing his father.

He meets Trillian at a club. Trillian is also dealing with pain and loss of her dad as well. Her mom left her when she was 7 years old. They both form a friendship to overcome their pain and loss.

I highly recommend this book if you like Chantal's other books. It has strong will built characters. A great sexy love connection between Trillian and Xander.

Beneath This Ink by Meghan March @Meghan_March



Meghan March
Beneath This Ink (Beneath #2)
Release Date: February 12th, 2015


Blurb:

I’ve always known she was too good for me, but that never stopped me from wanting her.

And then I finally had her for one night.

A night I don’t remember.

I figured I’d blown my shot.

But now she’s walked back into my life, and this time, I have the upper hand. I want my second chance.

Will she be able to see the man beneath this ink?


Goodreads:

Excerpt

“Con, can you take this walk-in?” Delilah called from the front of the shop.

I pushed back from the desk and shoved my hair away from my face. It was too damn long. I needed to get it cut, but the girl I’d been going to for the last year had basically fallen onto my cock last week, and I wasn’t going to be letting her near my jugular with scissors any time soon. She wasn’t enamored of my, ‘I don’t go there twice unless there’s something worth going back for’ mentality. I probably could have phrased it a little nicer, but why give the girl false hope when I’d all but forgotten her as soon as I’d slid the condom off my dick? I didn’t have time for bullshit, and I didn’t like to be misunderstood when I spoke. So I was firmly in the ‘tell it how it is’ camp. Women didn’t seem to appreciate my particular brand of honesty. Mostly because it didn’t line up with what they wanted to hear. Not my problem.

I stood and headed for the door of the break room. Time to meet my newest walk-in.

If I had to tattoo one more “YOLO” on some idiot kid, I might hang up my tattoo gun and call it a day. Thoughts like that made me feel older than thirty-one.

I scanned the shop, looking for my next client. If I hadn’t learned a hell of a long time ago how to lock down my reactions, I might’ve missed a step.  

It was no kid.

And if she wanted YOLO tattooed on that body, it’d be a crime against nature. Anger flared within me at the sight of her. I might not remember the night we’d spent together, but I sure as hell remembered the morning after when I’d interrupted her escape from my bedroom. We’d thrown words like grenades, and it was a miracle we’d both walked away without bloodshed. Even with that memory vividly replaying in my head, I still had to tell my dick to calm the fuck down.

Vanessa Fucking Frost was still out of my league. Hell, out of my fucking universe. She’d been too good for me in high school, she’d been too good for me two years ago, and as sure as she was standing in my shop today, she was still too damn good for me. And I bet she’d be the first person to say it. I still couldn’t figure out how she’d ended up in my bed that night. Not because my bed didn’t see action with rich chicks—it saw plenty—but not like her. Classic elegance like Grace Kelly. Joy Leahy used to make me watch To Catch a Thief with her, and that’s exactly who Vanessa reminded me of.

Her platinum blond hair was twisted up into some fancy ass bun, and her tan skirt suit clung to her curves in all the right places. One perfectly manicured hand toyed with the gold bracelet on her wrist. My jeans tightened uncomfortably at the peek of a lacy pink bra from beneath her pink silk blouse.

My reaction to her pissed me off.

Do you know what it’s like to finally get something you’ve always wanted, but not remember a single fucking detail?

It ate away it me. The not knowing. Part of me wanted to tell her to get the hell out of my shop, but the other part of me wanted to drag her upstairs, strip her naked, and tie her to my bed so this time she couldn’t leave until I was damn good and ready. Which might be never. And that thought—that weakness—infuriated me.

“Never thought I’d see you darken my doorway again. What can I do for you, princess?” A mocking edge colored my words.

Her nervous twirling of her bracelet halted, and her blue eyes, several shades lighter and more vibrant than my own, met mine. Her pink tongue darted out over her perfectly plump bottom lip slicked with gloss. This nervous, off-balance look of hers raised all my red flags. I was used to the quiet, sexy-as-all-hell confidence that had always drawn me in. At least until she’d opened her mouth that infamous morning and told me what she’d really thought of me.

“I need a few moments of your time.”

I raised an eyebrow. Now that was a new development. She’d never sought me out.

“Is that so?”

“Yes, if you could spare me five minutes.”

Some of her words from that morning, which I might as well have tattooed on my skin, came back to me: Do this again? Are you crazy? I must have been insane to do this the first time. This can never happen again. And no one can ever know. No one. 

And now she wanted a favor?

“In this shop, the only way a woman gets my time is if she’s getting a tattoo, or is on her knees or her back.” I knew my answer was crude, but that was what she undoubtedly expected from me. And I hated to disappoint.

A flush of color hit her cheekbones, and I wondered for a brief second whether she was remembering what it had been like to be on her knees in front of me. Fuck. I wish I remembered. Then I could just fucking move on.

I waited for the clipped go to hell and an abrupt exit. But instead of turning and walking out, she surprised me.

“A tattoo it is, then.”



Review by Wendy Book Obsessed Pimpette

* * ARC received on behalf of obsessed by books for an honest review * *

what a great book about second chances.

con has not had what some would a pedigree up bringing, he was adopted and may have taken a different course than most, but he still was human with loss and regrets. one big regret was not remembering being with the girl you've always wanted.

Vanessa is a good girl, though she comes from money, she doesn't let it define who she is. she tries to do good and go the straight path, until one day that path takes her to one person she hasn't wanted to see.

Con and Vanessa had a drunken night of passion two years ago, and Vanessa remembers every little detail, but Con doesn't all he remembers is her running away. Con has always felt that Vanessa was to good for him, that he would never fit in her world, so when she comes to him for help, he decides to use it to his advantage. Little does he know that it will come back and bite him. Vanessa had always just assumed that , that night was a mistake cause why would someone like Con want someone like her, Vanessa has never really felt confident about her self, so when she has to go to the one person she doesn't want to for help, it's a hard pill to swallow.
This book was awesome it had love, sex, suspense. when I thought it would go a certain way, it went completely opposite. loved it will definitely read more from this author.

Run To You by Kandice Michelle Young

Release Date: 10th  Feb 2015




I moved to New York for a fresh start.  I did not move here to fall for a man like Sebastian.

Sebastian Black came into my life like a storm in the peak of the night…dark, raging, all-consuming, and guaranteed to leave destruction in his wake. From the moment our eyes met, he had a hold on me. I wanted, craved, and needed him like nothing I had ever desired before.

The problem was he needed total submission. From the moment he handed me the contract, I knew what he was proposing would destroy me. What I had not planned was his ability to make me crave destruction. I would lose myself in him. Sebastian knew how to take me over the edge, and before I even knew it, I wanted to go freefalling.

It was evident that my past had the ability to destroy us. What I had not calculated was the power of his to do the same. My dark, brooding, impeccably sexual, alpha-male had his own crosses to bear. I was not sure I was strong enough to handle them, or the woman who helped chain him there.

* * ARC received on behalf of obsessed by books for an honest review * * 
Omg it was reading fifty shades all over again, but way better. Sebastian Black is delicious. He likes control, but when meets Danielle and finds out about her past and realizes how he feels about her he let's some control go. My God this two are phenomenal together and the sex it's oh. This book has a cliffhanger so need to say I'm hungry for book two, like right now. This follows fifty shades a little but is totally different to. I just loved it. I was asked to read for honest review and I could honestly go on and on about how good this book is but it wouldn't do it justice.

Run to You is a new novel by Kandice Michelle Young. I didn't know what to expect going into this book. It was a great suprise for me it kinda of reminded me of 50 Shades of Grey. In Run to You we meet Danielle who just moved to New York and lives with her best friend. Danielle starts a new job at Princeton Enterprise Solutions. On her first day of working there at Princeton Enterprise Solutions she is called into a meeting with her boss. There she meets Sebastian Black.

When Danielle meets Sebastian for the first time they have a strong electrifying connection between each other. Sebastian asks Danielle to go on a date with him. On this date he proposes a contract for Danielle it is for 6 weeks to go out with him.

I really enjoyed Run to You it was very hot and steamy. Loved the characters and the story. I was hooked on the first chapter.







The elevator comes to an abrupt stop and the doors open. I try to pull away from him, but he nibbles on my neck and I let out another deep moan. The door slides closed once more. Sebastian stops it with his foot, dislodging his fingers and straightening my dress for me.

          “We’re here.”

“No we were there then you stopped.” I smile knowingly at him and follow him into the foyer, brightened only by warm, recessed lighting. 

I glance around looking for art on the walls, but all I see is beige, which is a direct contrast to the dark granite tiles at my feet. We move from the foyer into a more open kitchen, connected to a minimalistic living space. There is a steel table in the center with soft white couches on either side. 

Sebastian leads me to an island made of dark wood and marble, and gestures for me to sit on one of the white leather stools.

“Wine,” he suggests.

I smile. “Sure.”

“Dom. Romaine?” He asks, as he pulls an expensive looking bottle from the rack.

“Sebastian, I don’t know much about wine except that it's better when it’s not stale. I’m sure whatever you have will be fine.” 

He pours two glasses of a dark red and hands me one. I take a casual sip as I glance around, noting the granite countertops. 

 “Let’s move to the sitting room,” he says, taking my hand. “I want you as comfortable as possible for this.”  

My sex responds to his words and I feel a residual hunger building in me from our unfinished encounter just moments before. I follow him into the living room and sit on one of the plush white couches, noticing a fantastic stone fireplace, but still no art. He sits on the couch adjacent to mine.

“You know there’s plenty of room over here. I promise I won’t bite. Well, at least not that hard,” I say playfully.  

“I’m fine here, thank you,” he responds.

I can’t help the slump in my shoulders as I cross my legs and lean into the cushion for support.

“Danielle, you needn’t be disappointed. There are many things I want to do to your body, and I will do them all.” He smiles. “But, first I think we need to reach an agreement.”

I feel the excitement pulsing through my veins again. “Ok…”

He places his glass on the table and rises to his feet. “There’s something I should show you. Wait here.”

…a serial lover of all things pink, self-proclaimed chocoholic, home-schooling mother, and wannabe yogi.
Her debut erotica novel, Run to You, the first in the series Run, is coming soon.
Kandi’s love of storytelling can be traced back to her fourth grade year, when a history lesson on Native Americans became too unimaginative for her liking.  She took it upon herself to liven things up by creating a story that was based on half-truths about a self-named Indian Princess. Kandice is in fact of Native American heritage (her great-grandmother was a full-blooded Cherokee) and in her own mind a princess, so you can see where her inspiration came from.  Her story was a huge hit with friends, and an author was born.
Kandice was born and raised in rural Arkansas, where she currently lives with her husband and three children. Though, if you ask her she’ll confirm that her soul is lost somewhere on the west coast waiting for the day that her body can rejoin it.
