Author: Mia Asher
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 10, 2017


Two strangers in Paris ...
One passionate, earth-shattering kiss.

He was the artist upstairs
with the tantalizing smile and laughing eyes.

He was the devil inviting me to sin,
seducing me to dance in the bright moonlight.

He was desire and need.

When he touched me, my body sang--
my soul came alive.

But I belonged to another man,
and he didn't want to let me go.

I'm a writer, a hopeless romantic, a wanderer, a dreamer, a cynic, and a believer. And, I might be a bit crazy - but who isn't?

I believe in happy endings however I know that not everyone is lucky enough to get one, but such is life. I think fine lines exist to be pushed and possibly crossed.

I read Mia Ashers "Arsen" four years ago and that story stuck with me all these years. When this book was presented I jumped at the chance to read it. OMG, I am so glad I did. Right from the start, I was hooked. The tone is playful and fun but quickly takes a turn. As I saw into both Sebastien and Valentina's lives I quickly saw the pain and hurt they are both experiencing although it is for different reasons.

I couldn't stop reading. Mia Asher's words are strung beautifully together. Each word more tantalizing than the next. Each paragraph brings the story together in a way that drew out my emotions. I could see why each of these characters were at, at this point in their lives and why. 

What I love in books is build up. I love sexual tension, I love being in the characters minds as they imagine how the other would feel against their skin. Or how the other person would make them climax. To me, when an author can do that and do it well, UGH, I fall hard. And I did. Okay now look I absolutely adored this book and I understood why the characters did what they did. I also know that some people will have an issue with it but for me this is life. Yes, it sucks sometimes but choices have to be made. I loved how Mia wove the story together. It made me love these characters because they are real!

Brittainy C. Cherry's The Gravity of Us Blog Tour


The Gravity of Us, an all-new gripping and emotional standalone from Brittainy C. Cherry is available now!


The Gravity of Us by Brittainy C. Cherry

Release Date: April 13th, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover Designer: Quirkybird Designs

Graham Russell and I weren’t made for one another.
I was driven by emotion; he was apathetic. I dreamed while he lived in nightmares. I cried when he had no tears to shed.
Despite his frozen heart and my readiness to run, we sometimes shared seconds. Seconds when our eyes locked and we saw each other’s secrets. Seconds when his lips tasted my fears, and I breathed in his pains. Seconds when we both imagined what it would be like to love one another.
Those seconds left us floating, but when reality knocked us sideways, gravity forced us to descend.
Graham Russell wasn’t a man who knew how to love, and I wasn’t a woman who knew how to either. Yet if I had the chance to fall again, I’d fall with him forever.
Even if we were destined to crash against solid ground.


We didn’t know how to act with one another after our first kiss. Our situation wasn’t the norm when it came to building a relationship. We did everything backward. I fell in love with a boy before our first kiss, and he fell for a girl who he wasn’t allowed to have. Our connection, our heartbeats, matched one another in our fairytale world, but in reality, society deemed us as an awful accident. Maybe we were an accident—a mistake. Maybe we were never supposed to cross each other’s paths. Maybe he was only meant to be a lesson in life and not a permanent mark. But still, the way he kissed me… Our kiss was as if heaven and hell collided together, and each choice was right and wrong at the same exact time. We kissed as if we were making a mistake and the best decision all at once. His lips made me float higher, yet somehow descend. His breaths somehow made my heart beat faster as it came to a complete halt. Our love was everything good and bad wrapped in one kiss. A part of me knew I should’ve regretted it, but the way his lips warmed up the cold shadows of my soul…the way he left his mark on me… I’d never regret finding him, holding him, even if we only had those few seconds as one. He’d always be worth those tiny seconds we shared. He’d always be worth that soul-connecting feeling we created when our lips touched. He’d always be the one I spent my nights dreaming of being near. He’d always be worth it to me. Sometimes when your heart wanted a full-length novel, the world only gave you a novella, and sometimes when you wanted forever you only had those few seconds of now. And all I could do, all anyone could ever do, was make each moment count. After we went home that night, we didn’t talk about it at all. Not the following week, either. I focused on Talon. Graham worked on his novel. I believed both of us were waiting for the right time to come up for us to speak about it, but that was the tricky thing about timing: it was never right. Sometimes you just had to leap and hope you didn’t fall. 

I have been asked many times by people "Why do you read romance?" "Aren't you happy in your marriage?" "What can you possibly get out of reading that?" My answer? While most people who have asked me this are men and some women I look at them for a long hard moment and think, "Wow, are they really trying to judge me and make me feel ashamed for what I choose to read?" Before I break it down to them and rattle off the reasons I love this particular genre. This book right here will definitely be one of the books I tell people about when I am asked these questions again. I sit here genuinely in awe. There are so many elements in this book that make it one of the top books I have read this year. 

Graham is a lonely man despite what it may look like to others. He is cold and unfeeling. At first, I thought how in the hell is Cherry going to make this work? It has been a while since a book in this genre has grabbed me wholeheartedly. Yes, I have read many books but this book made me feel so many things, It made me uncomfortable, the way Graham would speak to people. It made me want to hate Graham for his treatment of Lucy. It made me sad when I continued on and read his reasons of isolation and his own willingness to be there. It made me love him because I saw his scars and their beauty therein. 

Lucy, man this character, she is everything. She reminds me of me if I was quirkier and more open. Okay, she's not me but if I could have her personality I so would. She is carefree and doesn't care what others think. She is unapologetic and loves openly. She wears her heart on her sleeve. While Graham finds that to be a downfall when they first meet he soon learns that it is actually her greatest strength. Both these characters knew nothing of love but circumstances and gravity pulled them together. Together they learn what unconditional, real and true love is. They overcome circumstances trying to tear them apart and for once in his life Graham does not run. 

Obviously, I don't do spoilers and I feel that one must experience this book blindly. When I started reading I didn't understand why there two had the story to tell. I was shocked but as I continued they unfolded their secrets and I fell in love with them. Lucy, I loved right away while Graham took time. Cherry wove together a story that will live in my heart forever. These characters with their flaws were perfect. Her words are mesmerizing and powerful. I honestly thought it was going to be another run of the mill romance novel and I was glad when it turned out to be so much more. 

Alright, now I loved Ollie. I want a real him. I have professors that mean a lot to me but I don't have an Ollie...yet. I'm searching though, and his family. 

Meri (Pod) ugh she made me sad, mad, rage, then love. She went through so much and I was glad she had Lucy by her side. I hated Parker and wished he'd get hit by a car. (I know that's not nice but when you read the story, you tell me if you don't agree.) I was so angry with her treatment of her sister, after all, she did for her. Seriously, hate Parker!!! He's a douche. By the end, I loved her because I knew her heart.

Lyric, Jesus I hate this bitch....okay strong dislike....Nope, no that's hate I feel towards her. 

Jane, oooh girl be glad you a fictional character. She reminds me of a woman I can't stand because she is pretentious and ruins people's happiness much like this character. UGH, I LOATHE HER more than Parker! <--- (for those that have read the story...I know what your thinking but seriously think about why I did this.)

I cried several times reading this story. The way it unfolded, I could not believe the events. From Talon to Ollie, to Parker and Richard every person in this story made it mind-blowing and so incredible. Cherry has a way of making me feel the characters and their words. Every time I thought the book was going one way, it turned and went another. I have not given a romance novel 5 stars in a loooong time because I haven't felt moved by the story, but this one deserves all the stars! It is truly amazing. This book is the reason I love this genre so much. It inspires and gives hope. It makes me feel that humanity is not lost and good people are still out there, sometimes we need to foster the relationship and not walk away so quickly.

Betrayed By Lies By Rebecca Shea Blog Tour

Betrayed by Lies CR Banner

USA TODAY bestselling author Rebecca Shea brings you the third title in her thrilling and sexy romantic suspense Bound & Broken Series, BETRAYED BY LIES. Order BETRAYED BY LIES, and be sure to grab your copies of BROKEN BY LIES and BOUND BY LIES today! Fall into the deliciously dark world where the line between good and evil becomes blurred.

RSBetrayedbyLiesCover55x85_BW_HIGH-UPDATED (2)

From the USA Today bestselling author of the Unbreakable series, comes a sexy, heart-wrenching novel…Betrayed by Lies.

As an ATF agent, bringing down the Estrada cartel has been my sole mission. I’m a skilled agent, determined and fearless, but a relentless pursuit and a willingness to risk everything almost killed me.
A year later, when an opportunity in Los Angeles presents itself, I jump at the chance to start over and rebuild the career and life I almost lost.
Kate Stevens was not part of my new plan. I never expected she would be the one to save me from my past. She was exactly what I needed—smart, beautiful and independent. I finally have a future I look forward to.
Only nothing in my life ever goes according to plan. Losing Kate is not an option, but fate seems poised to ruin me, and there isn’t a damn thing I can do about it.


iBooks ** Barnes and Noble ** Kobo ** GooglePlay Amazon Live Release on April 24th!

This is the 3rd book in the Bound and Broken series. 
I have read EVERY book that Rebecca Shea has put out because I love her writing and the characters she creates. Her books bring in different elements and are never the same, even though they all deal with love. This book is no different. When I was first introduced to Sam I didn't like him all that much. If you haven't read Broken by Lies and Bound by Lies then you will have no idea what I mean when I say #SaveAlex. I wasn't too sure if I wanted to read a book about Sam but in the end, of course, I did because... Rebecca Shea!

Sam is an ATF agent who leaves his old office in Pheonix and moves to LA. Needing a place to live his boss tells him that his sister Kate has a guesthouse he could rent out. Kate and Sam meet and 
A chain of events sets off, there is no turning back for either of them. Kate is a self-assured woman who has put her career before everything else until Sam walks into her life. I loved Kate she is not a needy, whiny chick who needs a man, she knows what she wants and has built her life to meet her wants/needs. 

If you have been reading my blog/reviews for a while then you know I love me some secondary characters. I find that they bring in comic relief or bring out more of the MC's attitude and tone. They did not disappoint in this book. Adam is funny and amazing. He has a few lines that had me cracking up. Then there was Nick (Kate's Brother) and his wife Nicole or Nic for short...yeah how cute they both have the same name. We also got to catch up with past characters from books 1 and 2. 

While I enjoyed the book I felt that it was short and a really quick read. I was expecting more angst and build up and just more of Sam and Kate. While I know most of Sam's back story I didn't really get to connect to well with Kate. I don't know much about her and I get not everyone has a super sad story or has secrets but I wanted to get to know her more. Her likes and dislikes. Has she had a broken heart before? Why was she still single? Who the hell is Kandi and why didn't we see more of their interaction? Don't get me I loved the writing but I think I just wanted more because I'm a greedy bitch. I really enjoyed Sam's story, he may not have been my favorite but he certainly won me over. 

This can be read as a standalone but I feel that reading book 1 and 2 will help get a reader better acquainted with Sam and his past.

And don’t miss the first two books in the Bound & Broken Series!

BROKEN BY LIES is just $.99 for a limited time only!
