WARNING:

If you have read this far, I just caution you again. This book was written as a way of healing. I won’t bore you with the details but just know that you aren’t alone. You are never alone.

Prologue

From the moment I found out I was pregnant, I was in love with her. But almost as fast as that love formed, she was taken from me. Now as I looked down at my daughter, laying in my arms with her eyes closed, I only imagined that she would open her eyes for me. Just give me a breath. Anything. Wake up for me, baby girl.

When my lips touched her forehead, I prayed with everything in me that she would cry. But she didn’t. She couldn’t. It wasn’t fair. None of this was fair. The man I loved wanted nothing to do with me and the daughter I didn’t know, was stolen from my very body.

I begged to anyone who would listen, let her stay with me. Take me instead. She didn’t deserve this. She didn’t deserve any of it.

With tears rolling down my cheeks, my sobs of anguish ripped through me. They took hold and strangled me, sucking the air from my very lungs.

“I love you, baby girl,” I kissed her softly on her perfect mouth. “I love you and I don’t even know you,” I said through my tears. Brushing my thumb over her full cheek, I kept my lips against her forehead. “Lord, give me strength. Help me move on from this.” My breath hitched. “Help me learn to live without her.”

“Maxine.”

I didn’t look up at the gentle voice, knowing that the person had come to take my baby away.

“It’s time, dear,” the nurse reached a hand out, placing it gently on my baby’s head. “I’m so sorry.”

A sob tore from my throat. “It’s not fair,” I screamed, my soul shattering around me. “It’s not fair. I need more time. Please.”

The older nurse nodded, leaving me alone with my daughter.

Lying down on the bed, I kept her by my side, holding her close.

It never should have been like this. We were supposed to be happy. Just her and I.

When my baby girl was taken from my arms, the last bit of light inside of me went with her. My world would forever be clouded in a sea of darkness.

Because of this, a part of me died.

Because of him, I would never be the same.

#WOTR #COVERREVEAL – Numb (King’s Harlots, #4) by J.M. Walker

Blurb:

He doesn’t remember.

In the beginning, women and alcohol were one in the same. Until he met her.

The pain and heartache he caused her died when he was shot and fell into a coma.

Waking up is the only way he can get back to Maxine Stanton while she does everything she can to push him away.

She hates him.

Every fiber of her being loathes the man she fell in love with but she can’t control her heart and wants him just the same.

When Dale Michaels finally wakes up, she realizes they need to end this once and for all, before it destroys them both.

When an unexpected source rips through what they’ve worked hard to maintain, only then do they realize the full potential of their love.

#WOTR #REVIEW – Rude (King’s Harlots #3) by JM Walker

33009433

“An unexpected evil brings both the MC and Military world together in this brand new series by J.M. Walker”

His past haunts him.
Broken and destroyed, keep him silent and withdrawn.
Vice-One is the family he had always needed but it isn’t enough. Shadows of a nightmare threaten to take back the control he craves until Brogan Tapp unknowingly puts him in his rightful place.

She pretends to be happy.
Smile. Laugh. Repeat.
Going through the emotions of everyday life when really, she’s a scared little girl on the inside.
She tries hard to be what society considers as normal when Coby Porter helps her embrace the darkness within. He shows her it’s okay to be different.

Their souls collide, giving them the comfort they need when an unknown source takes pleasure in trying to rip them apart.

Goodreads

Intense. Dark. Dangerous. Delicious. What do you do when you find your match? Coby-effing-Porter and Brogan-little one-Tapp. The most unlikely of pairs. In the past stories we learn that Coby is a man of few words. He only speaks when necessary and is like a ghost. Brogan is a small girl but is one of the toughest of the King’s Harlots. She is extremely outspoken and doesn’t beg for anything or anyone.

As King’s Harlots and Vice-One are dealing with their own personal issues they are still trying to get to the bottom of the trafficking scandal. One night Brogan is “interrogating” someone from the organization and Coby sees a very dark side of Brogan. What most people would find dark, scary, and extremely intimidating, Coby fills with a lustful desire for Brogan. Both have had their fair share of people they have slept with trying to sate their appetite but neither have been able to let go like they do with each other. They are in a complex game of give and take. Both have had terrible childhoods, very different but similar all the same. And here is where they they really start to rely on using each other. Brogan almost dies in an accident and Coby becomes extremely protective of her. Then, Boom! Buckle up for an intense ride!

And this is about all I can tell you of the actual story so there are no spoilers. But there isn’t just one twist that will stop you in your tracks but there are several twists that are going to make you gasp. I mean real, heartfelt, deep in your soul gasps. I thought the other books in this series were intense but this one takes the cake. Once again the bad guy is truly twisted and really puts this story in its place. I find that when I read a series that the first book is usually the best and then they wind down as you go through the series. Truthfully, this is my favorite one yet. It is not your normal damsel in distress. Again, many gasps…promise. There is plenty of hotness that I have come to know from JM Walker with this series but the rollercoaster ride of emotions is the killer. Beware, you won’t be able to put this one down!

28793866

“An unexpected evil brings both the MC and Military world together in this brand new series by J.M. Walker”

He wants to be alone.
Nightmares from his past keep him guarded and afraid.
Vice-One is his life. They’re his brothers—the only people who helped keep him out of his own head long enough to move on from the childhood he never asked for.

His therapy has been protecting his country, barely taking a break before beginning his next mission. But no amount of training can prepare him for his great challenge yet—convincing Meeka Cline that she will be his.

She wants out.
Her world fell apart when King’s Harlots no longer trusted her, but she continues to fight to gain back their respect.
All she wants is to help those wronged by the evil that has put a shadow on everyone she knows.
Asher Donovan comes to her for help when he needs her most only to have passion flare up between them. One problem: He’s her best friend.

Putting aside their friendship, they use the heat between them to please the depraved minds they now understand…

Goodreads

What did I just read?! Uh, yes! Gimme more! This can be read as a stand alone but I highly suggest reading Grit first because you get a feel for Asher and Meeka along with the rest of the supporting characters. Stain is aalllllllll about Asher and Meeka. These two have been best friends since they were kids. But that’s it, just friends. They trust each other implicitly. This is a story of friends turned lovers…sometimes a bit cliche’ but JM Walker hit it out of the park with their story.

Asher is undercover and trying to find the ringleader of this sex trafficking scandal that we learned about in Grit. He needs help and ends up bringing Meeka into this undercover as well, but not necessarily with her consent. As they are about to meet the person in charge now, Charles Brian, they end up kissing and things heat up extremely quick between the two of them. Now completely submerged into this other society they try to keep up appearances but things slowly unravel. Asher is more invested in the background of this story than you will ever expect. It will pull at your heartstrings! Unexpected people are in the middle and things go to hell in a hand basket very fast. Plenty of twists to keep you on your toes and constantly guessing who and what is going to happen next.

If there is one thing that JM Walker knows how to do, it’s writing a HAWT scene, but one thing I have come to love is the way the bad guy comes to life with her words. Charles Brian is a bad guy that you love to hate. As if Meeka and Asher aren’t intense enough on their own, the setting, the supporting characters and the bad guy will keep your heart pumping. I am not normally a fan of MC books but I cannot put this series down. Bad girls and their bad guys! Perfect combination.

#AuthorSpotlight – Hell Yeah! Taboo Frequency by @GemSivad #KindleWorld #Novella

taboo-frequency-cover

When ultimate impulse collides with maximum control…

It’s all about taking charge. Luke Danvers has his future planned to the nth degree—until he steps on an IED in Afghanistan. Bitter, angry, and emotionally adrift, he returns to the States, ready to spend the rest of his life pissed off at the world.

Kiley Endicott has never been a poster child for moderation. Married and widowed young, she’s raising twins on her own. Since impulse has always ruled her life, it’s not easy being a sedate parent under the critically watchful eye of her family.

A Friday night lapse in sanity, leads Kiley to a hook up with Luke Danvers. Even in the cab of a truck, he’s an awesome lover. She wants more. But she’s got to be circumspect, nobody can know.

Luke hasn’t had fun in—forever. But he can’t stop grinning after he meets Kiley Endicott. It’s more than her being a totally uninhibited lover, but God knows he can’t get enough of that either. She makes him laugh.

She says nobody can know. Okay, he’s trained in stealth. He sets up a call system, a taboo frequency, guaranteeing her twenty four hour access in every way. But he’s not just waiting for their secret meets. He’s planning a siege.

EXCERPT 

“Maybe we can help each other,” she said looking up at him. He didn’t know what she had in mind but listened to find out.

“I’m a single mom. I don’t have a steady man because I don’t want one hanging around my two kids who are right now with my mom. She doesn’t babysit often and aside from Marcie, I don’t leave them with anyone else. I have a full-time life that includes a job and no time for a relationship. ”

“And?” He squeezed her shoulders, urging her to make an offer he wasn’t going to refuse regardless of what it was.

“And—I have certain biological needs I’d like to satisfy with something other than plastic.” She closed her eyes, her blush denying the intimacies they’d just enjoyed at the same time her hand stroked his thigh, promising more.

“Well as to those biological needs—seems like we can find a way to get them satisfied. When you’ve got the time, I’ll find the place.” He pulled up next to her car and put the truck in park, idling in front of her sister’s house, waiting for Kiley’s answer.

When she remained mute, he decided coaxing was in order.  “You do the calling,” he said, switching on his truck’s overhead light to search in the glove compartment for paper.

“I’d just as soon the whole town not know we’re carrying on,” Kiley murmured, her blush turning her pink cheeks to ruby.

“Carrying on?” After the uninhibited fucking they’d just engaged in, her old-fashioned description made him smile.

His quick rummaging turned up no paper, so before shutting off the overhead light, he held her hand and wrote his number on her palm. “If you change your mind and don’t call, it’s okay. I’ll not bother you. If you do call, I’ve marked your number a TF.”

“TF?”

“That’s military speak for taboo frequency—a contact too important to miss. You call when you’re able to get free and I’ll make sure we get together.”

He let her get half out the door before he added his last addendum to their deal.  “As to the plastic, you might want to bring it along for a ride or two. No sense in letting it feel neglected.” He liked a little variety in the sheets and he figured he’d let her know up front, he wasn’t all vanilla. He had a feeling neither was she.

#WOTR #Review Grim, King’s Harlots 2.5 by JM Walker

 

 

“An unexpected evil brings both the MC and Military world together in this brand new series by J.M. Walker”

He never thought he could be happy.

Vice-One had been what he needed most, until he met Genevieve Gold.

She can’t forget her past.

The walls she’d built are hard to break, even after falling in love with Angel Rodriguez.

They have been together for months, have tried to be happy but still can’t find that certain connection—the piece of them that should ignore the evils of life and focus on the love they have for each other.

 

Goodreads

 

What an intense and wild ride. Hot and steamy with all the drama we have come to love. This novella dives you right back in the middle of Jay’s and Angel’s relationship that has been quite the rollercoaster of twists and turns. In Grit these two fell in love quick and hard. They are both broken and have been independent for so long that they don’t know how to put the past in the past and move forward with their future. This is a quick read that gives you all the dirty details. You get a lot of background on Jay and can see how each one is tortured with this past. But most importantly you get to see how they start to come around to overcome this. There is a helluva surpise at the end that could change a lot for everyone. I have fallen in love with the King’s Harlots!

#Review #Shifter #Alpha Romancing The Alpha (True Mates 3) by Alicia Montgomery

***Can be read as a standalone billionaire werewolf shifter paranormal book**
In the next installment of the True Mates series, New York Alpha Grant Anderson meets his match in feisty New Jersey Alpha, Francesca “Frankie” Muccino.

New Jersey Alpha Francesca “Frankie” Muccino never had it easy. Alpha of her ragtag clan, head of her family, and manager of their ailing restaurant business, she’s got a lot on her plate. When a handsome, sexy, and very naked Lycan shows up on her doorstep, sparks immediately fly, but it’s one more complication she can’t handle.

Escaping from a kidnapping attempt by his enemies, New York Alpha Grant Anderson finds himself in New Jersey territory. He’s immediately drawn to the plucky and spirited Frankie, and has no qualms about going for what he wants – her, in his bed. The Jersey Alpha won’t be an easy catch, but Grant is determined to tame the wild she-wolf.

Danger brings them together as the evil mages come back for their revenge, determined more than ever to take Lycans down. Thirsty for retribution, they have taken in a new ally, one that’s closer to the New York clan and could finally bring them the victory they want. Frankie is caught in the middle of the war between the New York Clan and the mages and Grant will do anything to protect her. Can he keep her safe and win her over, or will the mages and their mysterious ally tear them apart?

Romancing the Alpha is a full-length (over 70,000 words) billionaire werewolf steamy paranormal romance with explicit love scenes, naughty language, and shifter suspense action with guaranteed HEA and no cliffhangers!

Although it works as a standalone romance story, this book takes place in the True Mates series world. To understand the elements, I recommend you read “Fated Mates” and “Blood Moon” before this book.

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

Grant Anderson is the alpha billionaire of New York. He is trying to keep the lycan safe safe from the mages.
Francesca Muccino, to her family and friends, is one of the only female alphas to led a pack. She is New Jersey’s alpha, that is the New York packs neighbor, and she meets Grant by running into him literally like with her car, after he’s been drugged and kidnaped.
Though this is Grant and Frankie’s first meeting, it’s not the first time we are meeting her, we met her in book one when she saved Alynna from a group of catty women at her coming out ball.
Not only is Frankie the alpha for New Jersey, she along with her brothers, runs a Italian Restaurant that has been in her family for generations.
Even though they’ve never met Grant caught her scent the night of the ball and hasn’t stop thinking about the mysterious woman with the yummy smell.
In this story we not only have the mages trying to kill off the alpha, we also have a group of lycan working with them to try and take over New York. Oh, and we have a delusional female that thinks Grant is in love with her.
Frankie has major high walls around her heart where men are concerned and I have to say if I was in her place I’d say forget men and switch sides!! Lol, but seriously it takes hard work on Grant’s part to get her to see that he has real feelings for her.
Babies being born, surprise trips to Italy, hot alpha sex, kidnappings, killer mages, this book has it all and I can’t wait for the next one!!

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Stain by J.M. Walker
Asher & Meeka
HOLY COWZ…VERY INTENSE STORY
5 Stars

So, this is the second installment into the King’s Harlots series and it just keeps getting better. This was an action packed emotional roller coaster and that tore me up. Such grit and mayhem infused with sex appeal and peppered with humor. You can’t go wrong with this beautiful story.

Asher is on VICE-One and a Navy Seal. He’s trying like hell to shut down a sex trading ring. He’s inserted himself and Meeka into the dark world of monsters. On top of this mindfuck he’s entered into, he’s dealing with his own battles that seem to stay at bay when Meeka is around. What is this dude thinking? He needs some serious help!

Meeka is part of the King’s Harlots MC and still kind of on the outs with Jay the MC President due to some past shit. Meeka is a good girl. The girl nextdoor if you will. She’s quiet, poised, but always ready for anything. That is until Asher asks for her help in taking down this sex trafficking ring. Holy hell, how freaking scary. I cringed every time she had to meet with that evil jerk Charles.

The supporting character cast is fairly large. I think I’ll only mention a few. It was nice to see Angel and Jay making appearances here and there. I hated that fucker Tyler… but then again… I hated him in the first book Grit. He’s still not my fave, but plays an outstanding villain. Now this Charles Brian, holy freaking hell. This guy makes Charles Manson and Jeffrey Dahmer look like the Pope. I don’t think there’s any human left in him, he’s mostly all monster.

So, to say this was good is an understatement. It was fanfuckingtastic! Stain has a great storyline that just keeps you guessing. I loved the characters, good and bad. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, but still somewhat perplexed as to where this is going to go in the next installment. Can’t wait to see! The pacing is perfect and the dialogue flows nicely. Great job Jo.

synopsis

For His Eyes Only
Masters and Mercenaries, Book 13
By Lexi Blake
Coming February 28, 2017

A night he can’t forget

Five years ago, Nick Markovic found himself consumed by his quest for vengeance. The one time he managed to find peace was in the arms of Hayley Dalton. Being with her was like bathing in sunlight, and he ached to feel that again, but he couldn’t. He gave his oath to Hayley’s cousin Desiree, his partner at McKay-Taggart and Knight, that he’d never let his darkness infect Hayley’s innocent world.

A spark she can’t put out

It was years before that Hayley offered everything she had to Nick. After that one amazing night, all she wanted was to be his forever. Unfortunately, Nick’s reaction was to walk away from her and never look back. The warm and caring man she’d discovered was gone, and after Des’s death, he’d only grown colder. But when Hayley finds herself in mortal danger, she’s forced to seek protection from the man who broke her heart.

A flame that threatens to consume them both

Haunted by the women he failed, Nick can’t allow himself to grow close to Hayley again. Running to stay ahead of the powerful forces that endanger their lives, they travel from the lush Garden in London to the glittering lights of Rio. As the threat against her becomes clearer, he realizes that to keep her safe he must confront the demons from his past, even if it costs him a future with the woman he loves.
