My review:
       Kaiya passes every night dealing with her difficult past. Every night she has nightmares, but every night and every day there with her is Camden, her older brother to protect her and beside him she feels safe. One day she decides to go with her brother in gym and there meet Ryker, with tattooed and athletic body. When she saw him feels shiver and big attraction. He becomes her trainer and instructor. He couldn’t stop thinking of her and he wonder why that is so, because he is womanizer and doesn’t have feelings about any woman. They both been hurt and they both are scared to live their lives in the normal way.
            Would love be enough or the ghosts from their past will stand                            between them?

         I read this book two days ago, but I’m still under impression of it. So powerful and great, so full of good thoughts and sentences this book is amazing. It contains violence and dark thoughts, but I enjoy read every single page of it. The author mix up many genres in very skilful and the result is amazing romance with thriller elements and erotic’s episodes.
        
      Kaiya is vulnerable and cautious. She doesn't commit and she is very careful when man is matter. When the ghosts from her past are awake she will become much cautious. I empathized with her and admired to her how she deals with the situation.
       
     Ryker is good looking man; every woman will fall for his body and look. I like how he loves and how he deals with his past and Kaiya’s past.
      
     Camden is great brother, protective and careful. I also like him very much.

     Kaiya and Camden’s mother is most unlikable person to me even more unlikable then …,you will know who if you read the book.

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

My rating 5/5 (amazing book)

Getting to share the books I love! It's so much fun getting to talk about books constantly!

There isn't a main type. I tend to lean more towards the romance genre with lots of sub genres such as contemporary, young adult, new adult, ect. But I really don't discriminate against certain books, unless it's horror. I normally can't do horror!

4. What are your favorite books?


Wow, that is a hard question. I have a lot of favorite books! I will only name a few though. The Gamble by Kristen Ashley, Fallen Crest High by Tijan, Strong by Kendal Waller, Sweet Seduction Shadow by Nicola Claire, and the Elemental Assassin series by Jennifer Estep!

5. What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?


Hmm, there have been a few good things that have happened because of it!
I've found a real true friend, Jme!
I found amazing books that help me escape.
And I've even found a job opportunity with a publishing company! :)

Prisoner by Skye Warren and Annika Martin-book blitz

BlitzBanner

Prisoner
Annika Martin, Skye Warren
Publication date: October 23rd 2014
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Cover

Synopsis: He seethes with raw power the first time I see him—pure tattooed menace and rippling muscles in shackles. He’s dangerous. He’s wild. He’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.

So I hide behind my prim glasses and my book like I always do, because I have secrets, too. Then he shows up in the prison writing class I volunteered to teach and he blows me away with his honesty. He tells me secrets in his stories, and it’s getting harder to hide mine. I shiver when he gets too close, with only the cuffs and the bars and the guards holding him back. At night, I can’t stop thinking about him in his cell.

But that’s the thing about an animal in a cage—you never know when he’ll bite. He might use you to escape. He might even pull you into a forest and hold a hand over your mouth, so you can’t call for the cops. He might make you come so hard, you can’t think.

And you might crave him more than your next breath.

The Kids from the River by Mark G. Cosman-review








Title: The Kids from the River
Author: Mark G. Cosman
Genre: Fiction
Pages: 200(e book)
buy this book at: Amazon





My review:
       Max, on ten years, wants to play in river with his friends Amy, James and other kids,sometimes but rarely Amy's older sister, Margo join them. They enjoy swimming in the river flew alongside the forest to the sea.
Max think that Amy is cute and has some unfamiliar feelings when she is near him. James is rich and spoiled kid, he wants to mocks other kids, especially those who are weaker of him and he wants Amy to admired to him. The years pass by and they are not kids anymore and they didn't share the same things anymore...
       
        I read this book quickly and I don't want to jump to conclusions, so I wait a little bit to think again about the book and my opinion is that this is great book. It's not easy there a described many years, there are many characters and many diferent points of life. I like how the author describes love on diferent age and how diferent people experiencing and manifest love, or what some people do for love. There are topics as family and friendships.
        
        I like Max, he is very strong character, I like his descriptions and thoughts of the others characters in the book. I was sorry for him and his mother when his father was angry.
I don't like James as kid, but I feel sorry for him when he grow up as very immature and vicious young man.
I don't know if I like Amy or not, in some part of the book I like her very much in other I don't know, but that is a stage of life which everyone must past.

This book was provided by the author.
My rating: 4/5(great book)

Drowning by Jassy de Jong-promo blitz


Exotic Erotica Drama
Sizzles in the African Heat

“Johannesburg native de Jong (Stolen Lives) offers up a tantalizing romantic drama set in the South African bush… The sexual chemistry bursts from every page as the erotic nature of the story plays out, with de Jong’s characters coming to life both emotionally and sensually.”
--Publisher’s Weekly
“…a most delicious blend of page-turning storytelling and no-holds-barred erotica.”

Rebecca Coleman, author of The Kingdom of Childhood

“Racy, well-written erotic romance with a page-turning plot: a feisty, likeable heroine with tough choices to make, complex men, sizzling sex, and an avocative African bushveld backdrop—what’s not to love?”

Helena S. Paige, author of A Girl Walks into a Bar


Astor+Blue Editions is proud to be releasing a wild new erotica novel, Drowning by JassyDeJong: available at all major book retailers October 10th! (ISBNs: 978-1-938231-96-4 paperback, 978-1-938231-97-1 ePub, 978-1-938231-98-8 ePDF; Romance & Erotica; $12.95 paperback, $4.95 eBook.)
You may already be familiar with the author’s impressive resume of heart-pounding thrillers (written under the name Jassy Mackenzie). A newcomer to this genre, JassyDeJong pulls all the stops to create a vivid, romantic picture of a luxurious resort in South Africa where forbidden love runs rampant and one woman is faced with a complicated choice.
Sensuous but stifled New York City photographer Erin Mitchell thinks going to South Africa on assignment will be the perfect getaway. But when a flash flood washes away Erin’s vehicle and she is stranded at a luxury safari lodge, Erin’s romantic working vacation takes an interesting turn. She awakens from her near-drowning and meets her rescuer, Nicholas—hot and brilliant, successful and caring—not at all like her abusive husband. At Leopard Rock in the steamy South African heat, Erin faces the toughest choices of her life. Nicholas is ripped, he's smart and he's "no strings attached." The question of whether to give in or not to give in drowns Erin’s senses as she struggles with two impossible goals: ignore the exquisite physical charms of her host, and conceal every last detail whenever her controlling husband calls. On the other side, Nicholas faces impossible choices of his own, as his bon vivant playboy lifestyle may just possibly collide with feelings more powerful than lust.
Erotic. Exotic. Emotional. Drowning sizzles as one woman is stretched to the breaking point by the strength of her vows and the intensity of her seething primal desires.
