WICKED SYNOPSIS


Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.

Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.

Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.


But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.

Title: Out of Reach
Author: Missy Johnson
Release Date: May 8, 2014



SYNOPSIS


My best friend was dying and I was in love with his girl.

Andy and I had been best friends since we were eight-years old.

Watching him slowly fade away, ever closer to his final breath, made me so incredibly angry. I knew there was nothing I could do to change it--I had given in to despair, but Andy had not. He had one last hand to play.

He wasn't going to simply sit back and wait for Death to claim him--not Andy. He was going to live life until he couldn't hold his eyes open any longer.

Andy didn't want to die in some sterile hospital and asked me to take him and Emily to the beach. It would be our last road trip together.

Emily. Emily was a problem for me.

I harbored a secret that would have torn our friendship apart. I was in love with Andy's girl, and had been since she'd walked into our sixth grade class, so many years ago.

So what kind of person am I? My best friend is dying, and it's awful--but my heart still aches for his girl. I hate myself for thinking beyond Andy's death and whether there could ever be a future for Emily and I, but I can't help it.

I'm in love with her.

Details:

RATING: 4 HUNTER & GAGE STARS!

Blurb: Goodreads

Gage was the first guy I ever wanted. He was my first crush and my first fantasy, but he wasn't my first in any other way because he never saw me as anything more than a friend— at least not until the night that changed everything.

 It was all Gage's fault. He insisted we drive through the storm and take the back roads. By the time the storm hit full force we had no chance. One night of snowbound sex changed our relationship forever. The problem was at the same time I caught another guy’s attention. This other guy happened to be the alpha of a pack of shifter wolves. I thought the wolves were the worst of my problems, but I was wrong. When things went from bad to worse I had to make a lifelong sacrifice to save Gage, but what price is too much to save the one you love?  


BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:


I enjoyed this first installment in The Dire Wolves Chronicles. Alyssa built a great foundation for this series.

Mary Anne has been crushing on Gage, she has known him quite a few years as they came from the same town.

Gage has offered Mary Anne a ride home for Thanksgiving, in more than one way.

This is where nothing goes to plan for these two.

Enter Hunter. The all Alpha male who at first had me a little confused at his strong emotional pull towards Mary Anne. It was flat out possessive, confident and a little egotistic from the start.



He stepped toward me, backing me up to the bed until my only choice was to sit down on it. “I’m attracted to you, Mary Anne. My body aches to join with yours, but that doesn’t mean I’ll listen to that desire. I can control myself, and I’d never force myself on a woman. I have patience.” He leaned over me, his hands making imprints on the bed on either side of me. “But what I can’t control is my need to protect you. That need isn’t one that can be pushed away or denied. I cannot, and will not, allow something to happen to you.”

“You don’t even know me. Is this just because I’m a girl?”

“I would protect anyone worthy, but I’d go farther for you. You’re exactly what I’ve spent years waiting for.”

Now he was getting creepy again. “I take it you don’t get out much?”




I simply didn’t get it at first, but then we get a glimpse of something more.

I did enjoy watching Gage stand up for himself and try to protect Mary Anne, even if it was almost impossible to win against a man like Hunter.

We get introduced to Chet, Falcon and Marni.

More story unfolds making me curious to read more in this series.

I kind of like the villains. At first I was wondering who the true villains were, but then, more story unfolds and I am intrigued to know more.

A good start to this series, leaving me wanting to know more about Hunter and that ending begs me to read Dusk # 2.

Excerpt:


A single howl made me stop short. “The wolves!”
“Let’s hope they are farther away than they sound.” Gage tightened his hold on my hand and pulled me forward.
Three more howls filled the night. “They sound closer.”
We picked up the pace, and I chanced a glance behind me. That was a mistake. Several large grey wolves came into view. “Run!”
Gage didn’t need to be told twice. He broke into a run without letting go of my hand.
I ran as fast as possible over the frozen snow, but we didn’t get far before the wolves started circling around us. “Oh my god.” Could things get any worse?
“You have to make a run for it.” Gage’s voice quivered. “They’re going to kill us.”
“I’m not leaving you.” I tried to stay strong, and I kept my eyes locked on the wolves. There were five of them. All of them were massive, much larger than any wolf I’d seen before, but one of them was even bigger and had a large silver streak running down its back. That wolf seemed to be staring right at me.
“I’ll distract them. You run. I’ll catch up.”
I spotted an opening next to one of the smaller of the wolves and went for it. I didn’t make it far before one of the wolves stepped in front of me. I froze, paralyzed with fear, before my legs were knocked from under me. Suddenly, I was lying in the snow with a giant wolf hovering over me.
“We’re fucked.” Gage voiced exactly what I was thinking.
The silver streaked wolf stared down at me. It’s almost glowing eyes bored into mine. Was I really going to die as half-frozen food for a giant wild animal?
Then things got hazy and the air seemed to buzz. Moments later it wasn’t a wolf on top of me—it was a man. A completely naked man with a faint scar across his face.
“What the heck?” I tried to scurry back, but Hunter didn’t move. His very exposed parts nearly touched me. I didn’t want to notice his size, but I did. He was huge. He also didn’t look remotely concerned with the cold.

His lips brushed against my ear. “Were you going somewhere?”

I have been a writer from the time I was old enough to recognize that reading was a doorway into my imagination. Poetry was my first foray into the art of the written word. Books were my best friends, my escape, my haven. I am essentially a recluse but this part of my personality is impossible to practice given I have two teenage daughters, who are actually my friends, my tea-makers, my confidantes… I am blessed with a husband who has left me for golf. It’s a fair trade as I have left him for writing. We are both passionate supporters of each others loves – it works wonderfully…

My heart is currently broken in two. One half resides in South Africa where my old roots still remain, and my heart still longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer downpour. My love for Ma Afrika will never fade. The other half of me has been transplanted to the Land of the Long White Cloud. The land of the Taniwha, beautiful Maraes, and volcanoes. The land of green, pure beauty that truly inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands – I shall forever remain cross-eyed.

BOOK REVIEW - FOLLOW by J.A. HUSS - SOCIAL MEDIA # 1 - NOVELLA SERIAL - EROTIC CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE

By: J.A. Huss
Published By: Science Future Press
Released : Available Now
Details : Kindle, 150 Pages

RATING: 4.5 CLEVER STARS!

Blurb: Goodreads

#Women.

I fuck them. I use them. I pay them off. I find another. My demands are never denied. My contracts are always signed. They submit to me. Willingly. Completely. Temporarily. This is how it's always been.

Until I saw that filthy tweet.

@VaughnAsher My bare pussy. Your tongue.#ThingsIThinkAboutToGetOff

"FilthyBlueBird" thinks she can tease me with hashtags and then hide behind a Twitter handle? She thinks I wouldn't be more than happy to #RockHerFilthyWorld? She's wrong.

Her online fantasy is about to collide with her public reality, and it's about to happen... now.

THIS IS A SERIAL NOVELLA
THAT MEANS ALL ENDINGS ARE CLIFFHANGERS
THIS NOVELLA IS ABOUT 150 PAGES LONG
THIS IS PART ONE OF SIX
BOOKS ARE RELEASED EVERY TWO WEEKS



BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

I LOVE reading J.A. Huss. She just knows how to write a male character and make him sometimes a little quirky/different, a lot smexi and he always has a mouth on him. What I mean by that is they know how to talk to the reader.

We hang off their words.

You thought I meant something else, didn’t you!

Well there is that too. J

Vaughn Asher is a character who at times is indecisive, but bottom line he knows how to make a girl work for his actions. He has contracts because he is into kink. He wants to keep his image clean on the outside and full of dirty kink on the inside.

Yes, the Vaughn Asher. A Hollywood legend. He started out in a boy band 2 Far Out, then when his angelic voice changed as he hit puberty he graduated into Disney sitcoms. Most child actors would fade after that, never able to make the transition. But Vaughn Asher doubled down on the workouts-- gaining the title of Most Envied Body in Hollywood six years in a row from Buzz Hollywood Magazine-- and the preteen wannabe turned into an action-hero heartthrob overnight.

Grace Kinsella is a tweeter. She is a player with her words. She is good at what she does. She hides behind her twitter name and talks/ tweets filth to the man, 
movie star Vaughn Asher, who she has been mooning, crushing over.

Yes, my name is Grace Kinsella and I’m a filthy tweeter.

I can turn a hundred and forty characters into living sex. I can string words together in a way that will make you wet your panties with lust. I can make a man blush before he even gets to the hashtag. I am famous for pithy filth.


She is brave with her filth and what she would like to do to him. Brave because he doesn’t know who she is.

But what happens when Grace comes face to face with the man she has been tweeting filthy tweets to? Her Dirty Heaven muse is thirty two years old and he wants to contract Grace.

“You are in control of yourself at all times, Grace. But just know... you will never, ever be in control of me.”

What happens when he discovers who is behind the filth?

Grace is a spit fire.

“I want to look at you to see if you’re a monster or just a kinky asshole.” 

I’m not sure how I feel about her at the moment. I think it is too early for me. I need to read more installments. What I do know is I think she puts on a brave face, but her life hasn’t been easy.

Who needs reality anyway? Reality is being orphaned at thirteen. Reality is foster homes and loneliness. Reality is a risk ripe for disappointment.


I thought this was a very clever idea for a serial of novellas. Naturally the first in the series is all about getting to know the players, some teasing with erotic foreplay before we get deeper into the story of the main leads.

We are going to be fed parts in two week installments. This will keep me very entertained. I love the serial title and I love the installment titles.

Clever!

Read EOBS = End Of Book Shit, which is indeedy at the end of the book. J.A. Huss is humorous and playful with her EOBS. Worth a read.

An awesome start to this new series, I am excited I can read Like next and Block is just around the corner.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ - PRICELESS by RAINE MILLER - ROTHVALE LEGACY # 1 - CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE




Ivan Everley, 13th Baron Rothvale, would admit he's the last person on earth who should have custody over a priceless collection of art. British law affords him the title of 'Lord,' but underneath all the trappings he's just a regular guy, despite being a world champion in archery, and certain...proclivities of a private nature. But Ivan's public celebrity is merely a sham--a carefully guarded secret borne out of the pain of betrayal. Even his cousin Ethan Blackstone doesn't know the truth behind the man he considers a brother.

Lord Rothvale has a plethora of problems piled up to his aristocratic eyeballs, but that doesn't stop him from complicating his world further when a beautiful art conservationist shows up to appraise his inherited collection of paintings. Once Ivan gets a taste of Gabrielle Hargreave, mistaken identity or not, he can't think of anything but how good the green-eyed beauty felt in his arms.

The chase is on, and Ivan's dominant side isn't taking 'no' for an answer--but yet, Gabrielle might just teach our discontented lord a thing or two about life, and about himself, and help them both discover the undeniable truth in what it means to find something genuinely... priceless.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ - PIPER & KADE by ELIZA BROWN - VIPERS DEN PART 1 - CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE - NOVELLA





Book: Vipers Den

Author: Eliza Brown
Genre: Contemporary Romance Novella
1st in a series of Novella’s






Synopsis


I’m Piper Jones, owner and operator or Vipers’ Den; a hair and beauty salon catering to the unconventional. My clients are often referred to as: eccentric, freaks, or misfits.

I’m also single, a fact my mother is less than pleased with. Making it her mission to change my status, she continually sets me up on dates with her friend’s offspring. Only her roster of “gems” is dwindling. Each date is worse than the last. Then Kade Benson, the one man I have loathed for as long as I can remember, approached me with the most asinine (borderline genius) plan I’d ever heard to rectify both of our situations. As ludicrous as it is, it might just work. However, I never expected things to work out the way they did.

ABOUT A BLOGGER WHO WROTE A BOOK - A LITTLE FAITH by EMMA JAMES - OCEAN BEACH SERIES # 1 - CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE






Hi everyone, this is Emma James also known as Michelle from Novels On The Run.

I have been blogging for over four years. I will still be blogging because I LOVE to read and review. It is one of my passions.

One of my other passions is writing. This is not a new thing to me, but as you get older and your life gets busier with a family , things go on the back burner.

Not anymore. 



I have had my idea for A Little Faith ( mature new adult / adult contemporary romance ) and the whole Ocean Beach series for quite some time. This will be a five book series, plus a novella with a two book spin-off. 

What can I say, I fell in love with a couple characters who needed to share the spotlight.

I wanted to bring something new and surprise all of you who have known me as a reviewer.

The ARC reviews are starting to pop up on Goodreads Reviews and they are awesome.

I look forward to you joining me and discovering my Ocean Beach series and my smexi lads and the ladies who help turn their lives around.



I hope to make you laugh and I have brought the 'feels' making some ARC reviewers shed a tear.

These characters ALL mean the world to me. I feel like they are my extended family.

A Little Faith is currently up for digital pre-order on Amazon and I will be getting myself an author web page, soon.

I want to thank Jemina Venter for doing all my artwork. She is a true talent with such a wonderful Aussie spirit about her. She is bringing my characters to life on the covers with all the little hidden detail. 

I have just taken a quote from the first few written reviews in :








This story is one of survival, strength and moving forward.
The characters are fun loving and complex, they draw you into their lives.
Once there you want, no! you need to know more about them.
I was drawn to the emotional pull these characters have, not only about themselves but for each other. ~Debb Lynn


Emma James paints a vivid picture within her story, both emotionally, physically and of course where the story takes place. As a reader I can see , feel and bond with this story, being an emotional reader I completely was swept along with the characters and there journey of moving forward, remembering and healing. ~Katrina from Page Flipperz


Wow... I'm hooked. I can't wait for the next book. ~Trisha from Devoured Words





I am having a virtual release party 9th October EST ( USA ) 6.30pm until 10.30pm with some very talented authors who will come out to celebrate with me. 

For us Aussies, it will be on Friday 10th in the morning.

There will be giveaways and fun times. I have followed all these authors as a blogger and love their work and respect them. 

I feel very blessed they are helping support my release day.

If you would like to rsvp , you can join up HERE

I currently have up for grabs 5 digital copies of A Little Faith and the first pov which is Chance's .

You can find all this over HERE
