#ReleaseBlitz – Whiskey Burning by Bella Jewel


Title: Whiskey Burning
Series: Iron Fury MC
Author: Bella Jewel
Genre: Romance
Release Date: September 25, 2017
In the darkness is where I first met him.
Alone at a water fountain, tears rolling down my cheeks.
Ready to give up.
From the shadows, his voice came to me.
Soothing. Comforting. Rough as the blackest night.
I didn’t see him.
I didn’t even know his name.
All I knew was he saved me that night.
He put my back on my feet.
And he kept me on them.
Every single time I needed him, he found a way to come to me.
My stranger of the night.
My dark warrior.
My name is Scarlett. You probably know me.
I’m America’s number one country music star.
I’m also the loneliest girl you’ll ever meet.
He’s as free as a bird. A nomad. Travelling alone.
Nobody to hold him back.
He holds the freedom I pray for every single day.
He shows me that life can be so much more than what I’m living.
When danger comes knocking, he’ll also show me a different world.
A world I never knew existed.
A world that both terrifies and fascinates me.
A world that goes against everything I’ve ever known.
A world of Iron Fury

#WOTR18 #Paranormal #Review #TwinsieFavAuthor The Invisible Warrior (The Protector Series 11) by Teresa Gabelman

Invisible Warrior (The Protectors #11)

Steve, the self-proclaimed Invisible Warrior, has not had a typical life. Trained by the VC Warriors, he still has to prove his worth, but with humor and sheer will, he refuses to give up.

In one afternoon, his life changes, as do the lives of three others. Steve Richardson has a serious choice to make between two women and someone who holds his heart like no other.





I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

Steve has been in everyone of the Protector series book and now he has finally come into his own. We have watched Steve grow from a angry half breed to a fully turned warrior. He is the jokester of the warriors even if he doesn’t mean to be. He’s always making me laugh whether he is talking about ant balls, driving a pink scooter like a bad a**, to now having a “porn ‘stache.
He’s always been a fun loving man child until Mira.
Mira is pregnant and in labor when she meets Steve and the warriors for the first time. She also has brought a hail of gunfire to the warrior compound. She is also a witch, which is a new group in Gabelman’s Warrior world.
When Steve meets Mira and helps her give birth to her daughter, he is a totally different person, like they were who he was waiting for a his life. Mira, her sister, and now her daughter are the last of the Dragon Fly coven and the one who is their mate are cursed to die, they also have a wizard that their ancestor bound trying to kill them off.
I love how Gabelman introduced the witches to the series, love new characters!!
I also adore how before he would even think about going to Mira with his new feelings he went straight to Leda, from the Lee County Wolves, to break things off even though they were friends more than dating. This is how a real man does things, not by text and not start another relationship before ending the current one.
Steve, Mira, and their daughter Drew are going to be a great family!! The way Steve is with Drew is amazing to see, right from the start he knew that these two girls were his.
The next book is going to be awesome, seeing the cowboy warrior and Mira’s witch sister together is going to be good.

#Review – House of Enchanted: The Revelations of Oriceran (Soul Stone Mage #1) by Sarah Noffke


The Kingdom of Virgo has lived in peace for thousands of years…until now.
The humans from Terran have always been real assholes to the witches of Virgo. Now a silent war is brewing, and the timing couldn’t be worse. Princess Azure will soon be crowned queen of the Kingdom of Virgo.

In the Dark Forest a powerful potion-maker has been murdered.

Charmsgood was the only wizard who could stop a deadly virus plaguing Virgo. He also knew about the devastation the people from Terran had done to the forest.

Azure must protect her people. Mend the Dark Forest. Create alliances with savage beasts. No biggie, right?

But on coronation day everything changes. Princess Azure isn’t who she thought she was and that’s a big freaking problem.

Welcome to The Revelations of Oriceran.

A magical world tied to Earth, and nothing like it.



I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

This is a wonderful new series and a new world. Sarah Noffke did a fantastic job of keeping me firmly implanted in the story while bringing this new world and characters to life. The characters are pronominal the banter and quick whit they have between one another is entertaining.

Princess Azure finds that she is about to become Queen but on her coronation day her family secret is revealed in a BIG way.  This flips her world upside down and in side out. Now Azure has to go to Terran where the horrid humans live to make an alliance but to do this she has to travel through the forbidden Dark Forest.

The creatures Azure, rather Princess Azure, encounters in the Dark Forest are fascinating. Some are there to help, some to protect, and some need help. The journey Princess Azure travels is one of wonderment.

I have to say Sarah Noffke has Enchanted me with this new series. Be warned there is a cliffhanger here but I know Sarah will not keep us hanging for long. I am ready for the next book. I need to know what happens to Azure, her friends and the horrid humans.

After Nicki helps him gather information on his nemesis, Erik is forced to work with her again. Fearing for her safety while fighting an attraction to her, Erik would prefer to keep Nicki out of his life.

Seeing so much of herself in the broken man, Nicki agrees to Erik’s plan only to discover she’s falling for someone who will never believe she can be more than her past.

#WOTR #REVIEW – Crash and Burn (The Witness Series Book 6) by: H. D’ Agostino

Crash and Burn (Witness, #6)

Detective Mark Colby is used to being in charge whether it’s on the job, or in the bedroom. He knows the rules and follows them to the letter, that is until she steps into his station.

Detective Antonia Rossi has always had to fight her way to the top. Being the police commissioner’s daughter in a male dominated profession has always come at a price. When she’s assigned as Mark’s new partner, she knows she’s in for a fight. Mark’s reputation for dominance proceeds him, and he makes no effort to hide it.

Can duty override desire, or will it end in a fiery crash of wills? Sometimes the crash is worth the burn.



I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

Mark, Mark, Mark what can I say. Mark and Amber have been together for a while and lets just say they are comfortable, argumentative yes, but their relationship has seem to come to a stalemate. Mark being the one to “fix” things decided why not get married. *shakes head* Just keep watching it is 100% a train wreck ready to happen.

Toni is Marks new partner and has always had to be better than the one before and the ones after because of who she was. She is sexy, strong, determined, and does not back down. Toni is going to give Mark a run for his money.
With the train wreck I mentioned above that happened between Mark and Amber. Mark finds himself playing along with Toni when she asks him to do her a favor. OH my she has no idea what she is in for that day. How can two individuals who are dominate as these two make this work? Someone has to submit at some point but who?
Mark turned out to be one hot sexy man. The connection Mark and Toni have is electric. I loved when these tow got together but when he had to interact with her family that was the best.
I love this series and cannot wait for the next one. It will be tough to read but so ready to hear Jenni’s story next.

#review – Boiling Point, Feverish Book 1.5 by Jade C. Jamison @JadeCJamison

Boiling Point (Feverish, #1.5)


Emily Brinkman hears all these descriptions in her head, all the things she knows others are thinking when she joins her boyfriend, Clay “Jet” Smith, on tour with his band. It doesn’t matter that she’s going as his PA as well; she knows she’s being judged…but she also knows that the people watching are half right.


Clay can hear what all the men around him think of his sweet girlfriend and he loves having Emily join him on tour. To this woman, he’s not just a one-dimensional axe-slinging guitar god. She loves him and wants the best for him, and she won’t tell him something just because it’s what he wants to hear. But Clay didn’t stop to realize that all the guys on tour–from the roadies to security and even their frontman–would appreciate that Emily is a nice piece of ass. He will need to learn to trust her if their relationship is going to survive.

Will Clay and Emily survive the bumps on the road or will their time on tour drive them apart?

Feverish #1.5 kicks off the new Feverish series, a spinoff from Jade C. Jamison’s bestselling Bullet series.




I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Oh Clay…Sigh…but HELLO Jet!!  It’s been a looong time since we hooked up. *wiggles eyebrows and whispers* Don’t tell Melinda or Daddy Brad…M’Kay???

So our party boy/Wild Man has settled down with sweet little PA, Emily.  All is good in their little world but now the REAL World comes crashing down on them. Jet has to go on tour.  Emily is a wreck because she is listening to one of the band members girlfriends spew trash about the life of dating a rocker.  Clay is acting more and more like Jet to Emily’s liking plus the roadies treat her like crap.  Jet can’t handle his own insecurities about Emily’s love.  Is it because he is a rocker with bundles of money or does she really love Clay and his sweet sensitive heart??

This book our couple goes through it all.  They are so excited to be together and keep their little “love cloud” a rolling that they start to let other people’s views and perceptions get in the way of their happiness.

I loved Emily realizing that Jet’s attitude isn’t so bad when you need to get stuff done.  I also loved how Clay felt real pride in his woman when he realized she was much respected in her line of work.  If only the two can talk and not just sweep things under the carpet until the bomb goes off……

Jade C. Jamison was born and raised in Colorado and has decided she likes it enough to stay forever. Jade’s day job is teaching Creative Writing, but teaching doesn’t stop her from doing a little writing herself.

Unfortunately, there’s no one genre that quite fits her writing. Her work has been labeled romance, erotica, suspense, and women’s fiction, and the latter is probably the safest and closest description. But you’ll see that her writing doesn’t quite fit any of those genres.

You’ll have to discover Jade’s writing for yourself to decide if you like it

#review – Boiling Point, Feverish Book 1.5 by Jade C Jamison @JadeCJamison

Boiling Point (Feverish, #1.5)


Emily Brinkman hears all these descriptions in her head, all the things she knows others are thinking when she joins her boyfriend, Clay “Jet” Smith, on tour with his band. It doesn’t matter that she’s going as his PA as well; she knows she’s being judged…but she also knows that the people watching are half right.


Clay can hear what all the men around him think of his sweet girlfriend and he loves having Emily join him on tour. To this woman, he’s not just a one-dimensional axe-slinging guitar god. She loves him and wants the best for him, and she won’t tell him something just because it’s what he wants to hear. But Clay didn’t stop to realize that all the guys on tour–from the roadies to security and even their frontman–would appreciate that Emily is a nice piece of ass. He will need to learn to trust her if their relationship is going to survive.

Will Clay and Emily survive the bumps on the road or will their time on tour drive them apart?

Feverish #1.5 kicks off the new Feverish series, a spinoff from Jade C. Jamison’s bestselling Bullet series.



I received a copy of the book from the author for an honest review.

You have no idea how excited I was to get more of Jet/Clay. You see I have loved him the most out of all the Bullet series guys since jump. I wasn’t sure how Boiling Point could top Feverish with Clay and Emily but she did it and I fell more in love with Clay/Jet and Emily.

The time has come for the band to go on tour and Emily is going because she is Clay’s P.A. She has her insecurities tested while on the road. Between the treatment from the road crew, being on the bus with all the guys, seeing all the girls come and go, and then there is Debbie that keeps talking about all the horrible tour life things sure doesn’t help with all her insecurities.

Clay has been burned before by a love and now he is caught in his head thinking maybe Emily is like his ex. Both feel the disconnect but because of their pasts are having difficult time overcoming it and talking to each other instead of keeping it bottled up waiting for the top to explode. Jet is able to toss that brick wall up and move on but sweet Clay struggles with what he thinks is going on. Can Clay and Emily survive life on the road or will what they have fizzle out before it really gets started?

This is a great quick read and continuation of Feverish being able to see into life on the road and to see the tribulations they go through. I enjoyed Emily and her way of dealing with what is going on during the tour. I loved seeing Clay’s sweet insecure side and then seeing Clay’s alter ego side Jet come out to play. I’m so excited for this series to get to know the other band members and of course to see more of my Clay/Jet. *swoon* Clay/Jet I still love them equally from the sweet caring Clay to the down and dirty Jet I cannot get enough of them.


*taps foot* Angie I just read your review and not cool Daddy Brad will soooo be informed. KISSES.

Jade C. Jamison was born and raised in Colorado and has decided she likes it enough to stay forever. Jade’s day job is teaching Creative Writing, but teaching doesn’t stop her from doing a little writing herself.

Unfortunately, there’s no one genre that quite fits her writing. Her work has been labeled romance, erotica, suspense, and women’s fiction, and the latter is probably the safest and closest description. But you’ll see that her writing doesn’t quite fit any of those genres.

You’ll have to discover Jade’s writing for yourself to decide if you like it

I am not a victim.
At least that’s what I wanted to believe. What I wanted the
world to see. Five years of trying to find the girl I hid from the world.
I wouldn’t let the bullies win. I couldn’t.
What was I supposed to do when he walked
into the building? He’d made my high school years a living hell.
But, he doesn’t recognize me.
How do I prove he didn’t break me? Simple, take him home for
a one-night stand.
At least it sounded like a good idea at the time.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
WOW Just WOW this story is one I will remember for a while to come. Mari was the “music geek” in school and Cole was the “jock” need I say more. Throughout this book we see how Mari was treated and picked on in high school. However, Mari is strong and with the help of her best friend she is able to be herself despite her insecurities.
Mari had things going her way she was the lead singer of a band and they were rising fast. But one night her past was sitting next to her at the bar. How does one deal with the past especially one that caused you so much pain?
Cole was on his way to the NFL when an injury changed his path. Now he is a coach and a very good one at the high school in town. Now having to face his past mistakes and dealing with the high school kids issues he can see things in a new light.
I admire Mari not everyone could forgive but over time she was able to and dropped her walls. Mari learns quick that dropping walls will expose your heart. Can Mari and Cole get over the past and make things work or will the past end them?
I loved the relationship that Mari and the band members have. Their protective nature over her was heart warming especially her BFF Sawyer. Cole was so sweet with the way he tried to win Mari over. This series has me hooked and I cannot wait for more.
A few of my favorites from the book:
I bent my head and devoured her lips like I needed her to survive.
I peeked over my shoulder at the man who’d captured my heart with a guitar and a sweet smile.
For a brief period in my life, I’d thought losing my change in the NFL was the end of the world.  How wrong was I? I’d had no idea that losing the woman in front of me would hurt a hundred times more. There would never be another Mari.
