Part One: Facing My Demons
Drake lost everything the day Chloe walked away from him. Feeling angry and hurt by her abandonment, he dives deeper into his cocaine use. Each day becomes a struggle for him. After his band is picked up by a recording studio in Los Angeles, things go from bad to worse. What happens to a man who has lost everything he ever truly cared about?
Part Two: Learning to Love Again
When Drake showed up on Chloe’s doorstep, begging for forgiveness, she couldn’t turn him away. To Chloe, loving Drake is like breathing and she couldn’t bring herself to let him go again.
But what happens next? Follow Chloe and Drake as they learn to forgive and heal together.
Will Drake’s fame get in the way of their happily ever after? Or is love enough to keep them together?
The epic conclusion to Drake and Chloe’s story.

I have really enjoyed these books, watching Chloe and Drakes story as it developed and the hurdles they have had to overcome. It has been an amazing ride and I am so glad that I have been a part of it!

In this final book we actually get to see exactly what Drake went through all those months with out Chloe. What was in his head and how he dealt with everything. I like when I get to see his POV because it gives me an insight into his head. His feelings and emotions. It was not pretty but that is life. It can get uncomfortable but its up to us to make the changes we need to be better people. Drake does just that to prove his love for Chloe. I am so glad. I suffered right along with her when everything went down in the last book. To actually see what he went through in this one tore me up. I love Drake and I am so glad he pulls his head out of his ass.

Can I tell you though the 3rd part of the book had me cringing. There were certain parts that I wanted to smack someone. I love how strong Chloe is. I love that Drake can always sense when she is lying. That makes it even more special because you know deep in your bones that this man loves this woman with every fiber of his being.

I cried when it ended. To watch a couple go through so much shit, I feel connected to them. I give K.A mad props for the ending. It left me sated and so satisfied. It was a hell of a journey but oh so worth it. Beautifully written and captured the moments to perfection. This is a story that will stay with me for months to come.

Sandie's review for Raw by Belle Aroura

***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.

You know what I like when I read a book? 
  1. Angst- when you get anxious and don't know if you want to put the e-reader/book down or keep reading but your afraid to keep reading because you're afraid of what will happen next.
  2. drama- unexpected series of events that make the characters come to life. You know like Betty is pissed cuz Veronica fucked Archy type shit.
  3. grit & rawness- harshness like violet sex. Just violent but true to life like I could see it happening.
  4. great sex - If you need a definition I don't know what to say!
  5. a cast of characters that make you both love and hate them- You want to hug them in one scene or rip off their clothes (in some cases) and in others you want to beat the shit out of them and tell them to wake the fuck up.  
  6. oh yeah a story line that I can follow- You know it can't be all jumpy where I am like WTF how did they get here if they were over there? It just doesn't make sense.                             
I mean a book can have 2/3 of those elements and it will work right? Well you know what Raw has all of the things I listed and so much more. I wasn't expecting it to be so raw and gritty and emotional. I went into this book completely blind. I knew nothing but I had seen some teasers the author made that piqued my interest. Glad that my instincts were right about this book.

Lexi is just a normal everyday person. Until one day and one meeting turns her whole life inside out. I don't really want to say to much and give to much away but WOW!

Twitch OMG TWITCH. At first I was not sure about this guy. He is dark, twisted and pretty scary. The more I read the more I understood him. I was intrigued by him. I think the fact that Lexi was a bit masochistic really helped me see Twitch in his full capacity. It was scary but enthralling. 

I like dark gritty reads and as the author says in the synopsis this is not a love story. I understood about 4 pages in. I love discovering books that are not typical and leave you with a book hangover. I read this book 23 days ago and it took me until now to write the review because I couldn't formulate words to convey the way I feel about this book. I loved the way the book is set up, I love that Twitch is the very essence of bad, I love that the author made this book twisted. Most of all I loved the ending. I know most people are not happy with it but I love it (after you read it let me know what you think).

I urge you all to read this book. Wait if you are faint of heart or a prude then no, don't read it. But if you are daring and open-minded I say go for it. I know some of the books I read are not for everyone but that is the great thing about books, no two people read the same story. 

I rated this book

Jamie Begley Teased and Tainted (VIP Room) Series Spotlight!

Kaden Cross had it all: money, fame, and women, but he lost it all in one night. One night that would forever change him. Forced from obscurity and into the limelight as the lead singer of the band Mouth2Mouth, Kaden returns to the lifestyle that almost destroyed him. The last thing he wanted was to find a sexy drugged out redhead waiting for him in his bed. Finding out that she’s the victim of a sex slave ring, puts Mouth2Mouth in peril, because the only way to save the woman he’s started to love, means denying her the one thing she wants the most. Freedom.

Sawyer has had one dream her whole life, to escape the smothering love of her mother and a life of poverty. Her goal was just within her grasp when her world is turned upside down. Kidnapped and drugged, she is given to a man she knows nothing about except that he holds her life in his hands.

One night, and two lost souls with tainted lives, find a love strong enough to reveal a secret that just might kill them all


The first chapter of Shade & Lily’s book – SHADE’S FALL – is in the back of Tainted! You don’t want to miss this!

When they reached town, Kaden pulled into the parking lot of a small shopping center. The store was tucked between a tattoo shop and a lingerie shop. Sawyer got off the bike as Kaden waited for her. Giving him a curious look, she wondered which shop he was going to. As they walked closer, she saw the one he was heading for was named Naughty Playground.
She was stumped until she drew closer to the sign on the door and saw that a whip outlined the letters on the sign.
“Hell no,” Sawyer said, turning around. She saw Alec and his men waiting inside their vehicle, staring at them. So help her God, if any of them grinned at her, she would kill Kaden.
“Sawyer.” Kaden drew her attention back to him. “You have ten minutes while I wait out here to go in and find what you want me to use when I punish you. I’m not fond of using a hair brush. If you don’t find something appropriate in ten minutes, I’ll come in and you won’t be happy with my choice. Talk back to me and I’ll go inside and make my choice and you’ll really be unhappy.” Kaden reached into his pocket and pulled out some cash, handing it to her. He then crossed his arms over his chest.
Sawyer hesitated.
“Tick Tock,” Kaden said.

Holy shit balls. I just finished tainted and shit shit shit shit! I can't believe this. Shit! 

Holy freaking surprise cupcake shit balls!! I can NOT believe the way this book unfolded. Let me pick my jaw up off the ground. The ending has me freaking floored. FLOORED!! 

I mean the drama. OMG. Rj. Digger. King. And the dominant aspect. Holy crap. Though sometimes I felt like Kaden was more asshole than Dom, but... She was down with it so whatever. Who am I to judge? And let's be honest here.. most of it was freaking hot! Umm.. LIMO! Apologies!! I think my ovaries exploded! 

I could not get past RJ though. Okay well I totally wanted him to get body slammed once everything came out. Can't you totally see Alec doing that??! I can!  

I can't believe the shit he pulled. Especially with Tatiana. But I did LOVE how Kaden was there for for Sawyer through it all. And I mean ALL!  What he did for her... And then Vida and Colton. And King. Gah!!! So much awesomeness. And.... The Callie info!! Holy shit balls!!! 

Did not see that coming!! I think my jaw is still on the floor. And no, I didn't just love the book because of the peek into Shade's book, this story and the way it flowed and unfolded was AWESOME!

 I give this book 4.5 hearts

Tainted (The VIP Room, #2) – Released – January 18, 2014

Available to purchase at:


“Here comes Trouble!” Colton took one look at the stripper on stage and knew that was exactly what Vida was, trouble. He had no desire to succumb to the young woman tantalizing men with her provocative movements and killer body with no intention of satisfying their fantasies. Fresh out of prison, his tattoo shop and getting rid of an aggravating ex were his first priorities, not a woman who should know better than to become involved in a situation that could get her killed.

Vida will do anything to save her friend’s life, even if it includes stripping on stage and doing lap dances in the VIP room under her stage name Trouble. All the sensuous moves were just an illusion to gain the information she needed, even if it meant the men who watched thought she would keep the promises her body was making.

Forced to sift through lies and betrayals, Colton discovers a woman who is as loving as she is loyal, but won’t give him a chance. Vida, who tries to ignore the escalating passion between them, learns the hard way that some men shouldn’t be teased…

For some reason, I don know why, I had A hard time relating to this book. It took me a little bit to connect to it. 

Once I did get connected, holy crap. I think the thing that turned me off off what how Colton slept with every freakin woman around in front of Vida, and she didn't say anything and neither did he. He just whored around. Slept with every woman in town...ewwwww. 

 And I think that's what turned me off. Once the story started moving along and we get to the whole King/Digger deal... and then Tessa .. I'm all like yes! Drama. That's what I'm talking about! 

There wee so many times when I wanted to smack Tessa. And I was kinda sad when it didn't happen, cause let's be honest.. It was deserved! 

But the heat, the heat between Colton and Vida is off the charts. Once they start to give in and Colton changes into this honorable man. This great man. This amazing man who has her back. Swoon. Then his MC has her back because of him being a brother. They are there when they need them most. 

It was freaking amazing! I loved the way this flowed. And Vida... What an awesome friend to do what she did for Sawyer. I was totally pulling for King to handle Digger I really was. I really kind of wanted the MC to handle it too. But I really like the way this ended. The suspense for book two!

 I give it 3.5 hearts.

I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work and education.

Taking after my mother, I’ve always loved to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations.

For now, my days are spent at work and I write during the nights and weekends. I have two children who both graduate next year from college. My daughter does my book covers, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.

Currently, I am writing three series of books- The Last Riders that is fairly popular, The Dark Souls series, which is not, and The VIP Room, which we will soon see. My favorite book I have written is Soul Of A Woman, which I am hoping to release during the summer of 2014. It took me two years to write, during which I lost my mother and brother. It’s a book that I truly feel captures the true depths of love a woman can hold for a man. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I am an emotional writer who wants the readers to feel the emotion of the characters they are reading. Because of this, Teased is probably the hardest thing I have written.

All my books are written for one purpose - the enjoyment others find in them and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best. In the near future I hope to take a weekend break and visit Vegas (hopefully be next summer). Right now, I am typing away on Shade’s and Lily’s story and the beautiful Kentucky winter weather.
