*RELEASE BLITZ* – Written On Her Heart- Paige Rion


Written On Her Heart by Paige Rion
(Callaway Cove #1)
Publication date: April 23rd 2014
Genres: New Adult, Romance


Andi Callaway has dreamed of becoming a published author her entire life.

Ford Delaney has always wanted nothing more than to escape his past.

An opportunity of a lifetime. This is what Andi finds when she returns home to Callaway Cove on summer break. A chance to work for her literary idol Ford Delaney is up for grabs, and she’s willing to risk everything—her boyfriend, her best friends, and her education—to get it.

She’s positive this will be the key to reaching her dreams. But the moment she begins working for the reclusive author, Andi realizes there’s more to him than just a name. As attraction builds between Andi and Ford, she begins to discover consequences must come hand-in-hand with something great—which could loosen control over her tightly wound life. And once romantic sparks fly, Andi’s other relationships start to crumble, Ford’s fame comes back to haunt him, and the heat they generate will either forge a powerful, enduring love or threaten everything she holds dear.

Exclusive Excerpt

“What kind of books do you want to write?” Ford asked, turning his attention back to his plate.

The question brought her back to reality. “Romance.”

“Ah, fairytales.”

At her narrowed eyes, he said, “I’m not judging. All writers, myself included, create whole worlds to give people a reprieve from their real lives. That’s what I do, too.”

Andi laughed but there was no joy in the sound. It was exactly how she felt about the kind of books she wanted to write and something Peter never understood.

Interestingly, Ford’s words meant he didn’t believe in real love—that he considered the beautifully written romantic plotlines in his own books ‘fairytales’. “I don’t buy it. You can’t write books like yours and not believe in love, at least to some extent.”

Ford’s mouth tightened. He ran a hand through his hair. “Why?”

“Because there’s hope in love.” She met his gaze. “And a world without hope is a sad one. If you truly feel what you say, you want to leave people with the feeling that good exists and that love, no matter how impossible, is possible. If love is such a lie, I can’t see you selling it like you do.”

Ford’s eyes flashed. “I believe people leave you when you need them most in life. I believe real love is something people tell themselves exists because it makes the world a better place to live in. When love fails, and it always does, people make excuses. He wasn’t the one. She was too critical, bossy, fat…whatever.”

Andi frowned. “So why write romance into your books at all? If you don’t buy into the notion it’s real?”

Ford smiled but his eyes softened, something sad lingering in his gaze. “Because there’s nothing wrong with giving false hope. Even if true love is a lie, it makes life easier to swallow. And that’s what’s important—finding a way to get through the rough parts. Love is the Achilles heel of man. It’s something we can’t help pursuing even if it ends in heartache, even if it is an endless pursuit of happiness. Shakespeare, Jane Austen—they got it.”

Andi sat in silence. The sadness in his eyes shot clear through her heart like an arrow, and her mind raced through his books, trying to piece together what she was missing, what piece of heartbreak had been embedded between the pages that explained the way he felt now.

“You think I’m wrong?” he asked, breaking through her thoughts.

She wanted to argue with him, to come up with a line that would disprove everything he had just said about love, but she had none, so she said what she felt instead. “I think a world without true love is a world without hope, one I don’t want to be a part of. So, I choose to believe, whether it’s real or not.”

She saw it. The flash in his eyes, a glimmer of something unexplained as his molten gaze met hers, pinning her to her seat. She caught her breath, unable to look away, the blood humming in her veins. In that moment, nothing and no one else existed. It was just him and her and the intimate conversation between them.

He placed his hand over hers and leaned into the table. “Andi?” he whispered.

Heart knocking against her ribs, her eyes flickered to his mouth and the hard contours of his jaw. He had shared so much of himself with her. This broken, brilliant man. Maybe all he needed was a little hope?

He reached out, cupping the side of her face. She’d never wanted anything as much as she wanted to kiss him in that moment. The warmth of his palm burned through her skin, and the feel of him exploded all thought, scattering it to the far corners of her mind. She curled her fingers around his and leaned closer. She could hear the soft sound of his breathing.

All she had to do was close her eyes. Move just a bit closer…

*BOOK REVIEW* Play – Kylie Scott



Mal Ericson, drummer for the world famous rock band Stage Dive, needs to clean up his image fast – at least for a little while. Having a good girl on his arm should do the job just fine. But he didn’t count on exactly how much fun he could have being with the one right girl.

Anne Rollins has money problems. Big ones. But being paid to play the pretend girlfriend to a demented drummer was never going to be a good idea. No matter how hot he is. She’s had her sights set on her male bestie, Reece, for years. And now that she’s supposedly taken, he’s finally paying attention. If only the chemistry between her and her rock star would stop hitting new heights.


Have you ever one of those books that just puts a smile on your dial, because you’re reading it. Play by Kylie Scott was it for me. In the second book of series the Stage Dive band are back with drummer Mal Ericson taking the forefront in this narrative with his relationship with Anne. If there was any ever doubt that the creative mind of Kylie Scott had no limits it has been demolished. Play was fun, upbeat and I can say I read it one sitting. One. Sitting. That’s how amazing it was. Once I began from the sex-alicious front cover to the acknowledgments at the back, I was captured, caught and immersed in the Stage Dive world again.

Kylie yet again was able to provide a rock star romance to the extent of greatness. Mal, I think is a guy who always gets what he wants but through the portrayal in the novel we really get to see him struggle. I love Anne; she is just so strong and such a great match for Mal. The quirky takes, the jealous best friend and the chemistry between Mal and Anne is U.N.D.E.N.I.A.B.L.E. It is raw with feelings and heart but also with the lust and fall over your feet and smile jazz that I love about Kylie Scott.

Sweet, mamma jammer this was such an amazing read and my favourite quote throughout the novel was probably.

“Life’s a Song, Anne. Let’s Play.” – Mal (Play)

With raw sexual tension, explosive chemistry and a bunch of challenges that included punches, proposals, and passion. It was such an amazing read. Play by Kylie Scott is in my TOP 10, Books of 2014. With so much passion, and the good loving sense of humor and love I couldn’t go past giving this a 5 Lit Love, David still owns my heart but Mal definitely came swooping in.

*RELEASE LAUNCH* Broken Dreams – Kelly Elliott

Courtney Will always dreamed of finding her Prince Charming and living happily ever after, like in the fairy tales she read as a child. Her dreams were shattered one fateful night when her prince turned out to be her worst nightmare. Burying herself in her job as an editor, Courtney tried to forget her past, and she lost hope of ever finding true love.

Reed Moore’s past filled his world with guilt and anger, and then a mistake in college deepened these feelings. Fearing he will one day repeat his father’s mistakes with the woman he loves, Reed has vowed to never give his heart to anyone.

Reed and Courtney have each spent years building walls to guard their hearts, so when their feelings for one another explode into something unexpected, they argue and throw hurtful words at each other in hopes of avoiding the truth.

Will Reed end up being the Prince Charming Courtney has dreamed of her entire life? Is Courtney the woman who will help Reed move past the guilt and anger, so he can embrace love?
Can their broken dreams become their happily ever after?


“Mr. Moore?” Johnny called out.

Johnny was the high school kid I’d ended up hiring last week
to help out for a bit until Layton got back from his honeymoon. Johnny was
friends with Ryan, the kid Layton had hired last summer.
I stood up and walked over to the gate. “Hey, Johnny. You
get everything done?”
He nodded and smiled. “Yes, sir. Miss Will took Tink out for
a ride a little bit ago. Should I stay and help her with the horse when she
gets back?”
“Nah. Courtney is a big girl. She can handle it. Thanks,
dude. I’ll see you tomorrow after church, right? Mr. Morris will be back in the
afternoon, and then you can officially meet him.”
He reached out and shook my hand. “Sounds like a plan, sir.”
He turned and headed off to his old Chevy truck, and I
headed back to the chair I had been sitting in. It was so damn hot out, and all
I wanted to do was jump in the pool, but damn 
Courtney had me sneaking around,
reading this stupid book of hers. I wouldn’t dare tell her I’d bought myself a
Kindle, and I had loaded her favorite book on it. I had to know what it was
that had always made her want to read it.
It didn’t take me long before I was completely engrossed in
Nick and Alexa’s world. I thought I heard a noise, but I couldn’t pull my eyes
away from the Kindle. Nick was just about to—
“Whatcha doin’ there?” Courtney whispered into my ear,
scaring the shit out of me.
I jumped up so fast that it caused me to lose my balance. I
stumbled backward and went right into the pool, Kindle and all.
Courtney started screaming, “No! My Kindle! You asshole, you
ruined my brand-new Kindle.”
I looked up at her as she began stomping her feet with her
hands flying everywhere, and I couldn’t help but smile.
I quickly removed the smile and started getting out of the
pool. “Nice. You’re worried about a stupid-ass Kindle. No, really, I’m fine,
Courtney. I didn’t just fall into a pool where I could have possibly hurt
She stopped jumping around and looked at me. “It’s not like
you fell off a building, for 
Christ’s sake. You fell into a pool…with my Kindle!”
She reached for the Kindle, and I swore she wiped a tear
away. I shook my head and then pulled my shirt up and over my head. Then, I
began unbuttoning my jeans.
“Whoa there, cowboy. Giving me a free strip show isn’t going
to make up for the fact that this is the second Kindle that has been destroyed
I pulled my jeans down, and she stopped talking while she
moved her eyes up and down my body. The moment she bit down on her lower lip
and let out a small moan, I felt my dick jump.


This girl is going to
kill me.

*BOOK REVIEW* Off the Record- K.A Linde

So I am totally in love with this book and I definitely recommend putting it on your TBR list. Off the Record by K.A Linde was a suit and tie romance that I fell in love with.


synopsisLiz Dougherty has no idea a single question is about to change her life.

Her first big reporting assignment for her North Carolina college newspaper has her covering a state senator’s impromptu press conference. Brady Maxwell may have everything it takes to be a politician—a winning pedigree, devastating good looks, a body made to wear suits—but his politics rub Liz the wrong way. When Liz’s hard-hitting question catches the upstart senator off-guard, it impresses Hayden Lane, Liz’s editor who feels she’s headed for a promising career as a reporter.

But Liz is also headed into a secret romance with Brady that could destroy both their ambitions. Though he’s a bachelor, potential voters might frown on Brady cozying up to a reporter. And Liz isn’t sure sneaking around is enough for her—especially when things between her and Hayden might be less platonic than she thought.

Sleek, sexy, and smart, Off the Record ventures into a high-stakes campaign and an even higher-stakes affair to answer the question: When politics and love collide, can there ever be a winner?


Politics are a cutthroat sport without the added bonus of emotional relationships. No to soon after beginning Off the Record by K A Linde, I fell in love with the driven personalities of Liz and Brady.  Liz is the driven college journalist that strives to have a big break. I can relate to this because I am majoring in Communications in university and it is a very driven community. Brady Maxwell, oh Brady. Suit, tie and a Senator with charm and charisma what more could you ask for in a male lead.

Off the Record is the first political romance I have ever read. It was amazing, from start to end. Liz and Brady’s characters felt really and authentic, although not everyone is in their positions the characters were still indefinably relatable. The narrative explored how politics can create, rectify and destroy a person’s life. I loved how the characters played of each other and the narrative flowed at ease. The strong will of Liz is what drew me so much further into the story than I originally thought I would be. The scenes are shaped with striking linguistic language appropriate to a college journalist and senator. The romantic scenes showed heart and sole into a life of politics that is rarely seen from the public’s point of view. I think Linde, did an astonishing job at creating an equilibrium of how to portray characters especially a politician in the public eye, but also in the private comforts.

Overall, the heart and sole of K A Linde’s writing brought power and drive into a narrative of a college journalist and Senator. I loved the narrative; the characters ambitions and feelings created heart and the language of the written word drove a home run into a beautiful novel. I rated it a 5-Lit Love because it had me turning the pages till the very end and I can’t wait for the second book in the series ‘On The Record.’

*COVER REVEAL+ EXCERPT* Burn for You – Marquita Valentine

We are very excited to share the cover for Burn For You, by Marquita Valentine!

Title: Burn For You (Boys of the South #5)
Age Group: New Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 21, 2014
Cover Designer: Sarah Hansen at Okay Creations
Hosted by: Wordsmith Publicity

Book Description:
Beau Montgomery is not the typical single dad for three reasons:
1.      He’s rich and famous.
2.      He needs a nanny, like yesterday.
3.      He has no idea if eight month old, Mia, is actually his daughter.
Only, number three doesn’t matter to him at all, because he’s determined to give up everything to be a standup dad, including racing, partying, and his very favorite vice, women. Until that is, he’s invited to race at Monaco—a dream he’s always had. Now, all those things he’d sworn to give up are at his fingertips, including the very inconveniently hot nanny, Landry Basnight, who’s travelling with him.
Landry Basnight is the typical college graduate for three reasons:
1.      She’s broke and in debt up to her eyeballs.
2.      She needs a job, like yesterday.
3.      Nothing exciting ever happens in her life.
Only, number three is about to change, because she’s been hired by Beau Montgomery, son of NASCAR Racing Royalty. Landry’s parents are big fans of the Montgomerys, while she couldn’t care less—all she wants to do is make a dent in her student loan bill. However, that doesn’t stop her from falling in love with her little charge, nor does it make it easier to resist Beau’s charms.  In fact , she doesn’t resist at all.
Lines are crossed and then forgotten as Beau and Landry grow closer, but when Beau’s ex-girlfriend, the woman he’s loved since high school, and Mia’s mother shows up, everything starts to fall apart for the new couple.
Will their love weather the storm, or will Beau abandon Landry for the family he’s always wanted?
 ** Burn For You can be read as a stand-alone**

Be sure to add Burn For You to your to-read list!

I give her a look. “Explain ‘not really’.”

She looks down at our hands instead of answering me.  “Let go of me and I’ll be happy to.”

“Maybe I like holding your hand,” I reply, rubbing my thumb along her skin. That familiar feeling of falling comes over me.

“What you like and what you should be doing are two very different things, Mr. Montgomery,” she says, slipping her hand from my grasp. She crosses her arms in front of her and pins me with a glare.

 The wind picks up, chasing a strand of wavy light, brown hair around her beautiful, angry face.  I tuck it behind her ear, like I did that night, unable to help myself, like the first time we met.

“What I want to do is criminal, Ms. Basnight,” I say softly.

 She sucks in a breath, her cheeks flushing again.  No act, far as I can tell. She’s all out of her element. Satisfaction roars. She wanted me then at Kings, and she wants me now.

The knowledge sends a shot of pure lust straight to my cock.

Jesus, I’m in trouble.

*COVER REVEAL* Let Love Be- Melissa Collins

Today’s cover reveal is on the wonderful ‘Let Love Be’ by Melissa Collins.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00037]Book Title:Let Love Be Author: Melissa Collins Genre: Contemporary Romance Release Date:April 7, 2014 Hosted by:Book Enthusiast Promotions

synopsisWhat would bring you happiness in a world that was suddenly empty? For Lucy Crane, the answer is simple: her daughter. When her husband is killed in a tragic accident, Lucy loses her desire to live, but only one thing keeps her going – her unborn daughter. Focusing on being a mother helps Lucy cope with her loss, but kids grow up and they leave home, eventually. Eighteen years after losing her first and only love, Lucy is faced with the opportunity to find the happiness for which she’s always longed. Her own fears become her worst enemies as she learns how to embrace love once again. Evan Donovan is also facing his own struggles. Forced to retire from the FDNY because of lung damage caused by 9/11, Evan moves to upstate New York where he hopes to find a little peace and quiet. Old habits die hard, and Evan’s hero complex and survivor’s guilt constantly remind him of how difficult it is to be vulnerable. But for the first time in his life, he’s tired of being alone. Drawing strength from one another, Lucy and Evan discover how beautiful it is to let love be a part of their lives.

excerpt“Oh, I love this movie.” She settles on Forrest Gump as I grab my second slice. “So, you already know about my history. What about you? Have you ever been married?” Forrest’s proposal to Jenny plays in the background. “No. I mean, I’ve had a few relationships here and there, but work always got in the way. Staying single was somehow easier.” “Same here. I mean, when Melanie was a kid, it was much easier to just focus on that part of my life.” “Now?” I hazard a question that takes even me by surprise. She puts her plate down on the coffee table and swallows back a large sip of water. “Now, I’m not so sure.” Suddenly, my mind races with the possibilities of what her words mean. It’s crazy to think how just a few encounters with Lucy have made me re-evaluate my feelings. Obviously, she feels the same way. A calm and peaceful air falls on us as a small smile curls at my lips. A comfortable silence fills the space as we watch the movie, recalling some memories when certain scenes come up. Nothing prepares me for Lucy’s reaction when Jenny and Forrest get married and she tells him she’s sick. I try not to look at her, wanting to avoid making her feel like she’s in the spotlight or anything like that. I do notice a few stray tears streaking down her cheeks so I can only imagine what’s to come. As we watch Forrest sitting beside Jenny’s grave, reading a letter from their son, Lucy reaches for a napkin. Clutching it to her chest, I can see her breathing rapidly. What were just a few tears earlier is now a steady stream. She doesn’t say anything, won’t even look at me, but I can’t watch her cry like this. I shift on the small, overstuffed sofa and drape my arm around her. The top of her head fits perfectly into the crook of my shoulder. The scent of her hair takes over my senses; the sound of her softly sniffling through her tears tugs at my heart. I alternate between squeezing her arm and tracing my fingers up over her shoulder. When she seems to have gathered her emotions, calming down a bit, my instincts take over and I act seemingly without thinking. Or maybe I am thinking and I’m just afraid of what I’m thinking. Gently pressing my lips to the top of her soft, brown hair feels like second nature. She tenses momentarily, and I realize I may have just overstepped my boundaries. “Sorry about that.” I straighten in my seat and try to move my arm, but her fingers fall to my forearm. She looks up at me through long lashes with puffy, red eyes from crying. “Don’t be.” Her voice is soft, angel-like. “It’s nice to be held.” That piece of information prompts me to pull her even closer. “Well, I’m glad I could be of service.” She laughs softly and then takes a deep breath before she shifts to move away from me, which just makes me pull her close once again. “Don’t,” planting another quick kiss to her head, “it’s nice to have someone to hold.”


Author PicMelissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream. Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.

Beau Diesel…He was my “one”. My one that I would sacrifice everything for. My one that I wanted to be with until I took my final breath. My one that completed me.

I wanted him. I needed him. But he was off limits. I knew this, but the risk of consequences didn’t outweigh the depth of my desire.

So, I fought for our love.

But, I wasn’t Beau’s “one”.

So, he fought against our love.

He fought so hard, eventually I had to give up. I had to admit defeat.

But, that’s the thing about love – when you’re down and out, true love wins. It prevails…and it raises you up.

**This is a stand alone novel, with a happy ever after**

The line between life and death, right and wrong can sometimes get clouded. In Illicit Desire by Kasey Millstead I descended into reading an exquisite narrative of passion, love, risk and what is seen as right and wrong.

Beau Diesel. Oh Beau.

The passion that ignites between Harlow and Beau in the sexually erotic read left me hot and bothered at times. The narrative follows what happens when a loved ones life is cut short and you have to evaluate what is important in life. Illicit Desire brought passion, fire and the risk of whether to let your feelings take control into a beautiful written piece.  Beau’s nickname for Harlow of “Duchess” is so sweet, it made it all the more romantic to read. I loved how Kasey created such an endearing father and daughter relationship within the narrative.

 The character I most related to was Harlow. I think in the sense because I have the endearing relationship with my father I cherished the interaction between Harlow and her father and could relate. The story did keep me guessing in the turns and revelations that Kasey mustered up exploring Beau’s background and the emotions that come from love and building a relationship. The tense scenes were gripping, the sad scenes made me want to grab a million tissues but there was so much emotion guided by Kasey’s writing.  This book is a standalone so it doesn’t end in a cliffhanger, because by god if it did, I would have gone crazy.

Overall, I absolutely loved Illicit Desire it was a beautiful written poetic piece of writing that explores so many aspects of emotions and the risks of right and wrong.  The journey that Kasey takes the reader on is an emotional and gripping one, I gave Illicit Desire a 4-Lit Love because it was emotional, raw in honesty and had me turning the page till the very end.

*BOOK REVIEW* He Belongs with Me- Sarah Darlington

Today’s book review, is on a wonderful amazing read called ‘He Belongs With Me’ by Sarah Darlington. I absolutely loved this book.



Author: Sarah Darlington
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

He Belongs With Me


Two girls. One Leo.

Identical twins, Maggie and Clara Ryder, both grew up with Leo Maddox, billionaire playboy, apparent alcoholic, and heir to his grandfather’s world-famous Maddox hotel empire. Their roles were cemented long ago: Maggie, as his best friend and Clara as his childhood nemesis.

But when a simple twist of fate changes everything and both girls start to fall for the lean, mean, ridiculously sexy and seemingly spoiled Leo… which girl will win his heart?

Throw in a little mischief, drama, and one smoking-hot bartender and lines are sure to blur. But one thing’s for certain, neither good-girl Maggie nor rebellious Clara will be satisfied until they each figure out where they belong.

*NEW ADULT ROMANCE. Recommended for 17+ due to sexual situations and adult language.


Where do I begin? The infectious debut novel by Sarah Darlington He Belongs With Me did nothing but ouzel words of heart and soul. It was passionate. Romantic. Heart felt. The narrative embedded heart melting, panty wetting moments that because of I literally couldn’t put down the book. You can probably tell by now, I have a thing for romances and especially the drop to your knees end up eating a whole tub of ice cream  because you don’t have a boyfriend romances.

Maggie and Clare are the dual protagonists of the narrative as identical twins who grew up with playboy Leo Maddox. At the very beginning, I had all sorts of images rolling through my brain to what Leo may look like. A Twist of fate in the most unlikely location made the narrative a heartwarming and good feel romance. I loved how Sarah took chances in her debut novel, because easily the characters could have taken different paths. It was heartwarming to see that Clara and Maggie both took chances in faith and show emotion.

The narrative was down to earth and played many of the love-hate relationships within the development and testing of feelings which I loved. The testing of feelings that developed throughout the book showed many levels of great skill in personal development of the characters through the writing. The characters had to face their own truths from past loves and new found loves which in turn created strong personalities and characters. As a debut novel writer, I loved the charm, belief and narrative that were created within the characters.

Overall I had so much love for this book and I rated the book a 5- Lit Love. It captured so much raw emotion and did such an amazing job at testing feelings, creating bonds and showing flawless emotions within the characters.
