#ReleaseBlitz – Wed by Wednesday by Sarah O’Rourke






Wed by Wednesday

What happens when a naive city girl answers a personal ad to marry a bachelor farmer from the hills of Tennessee? Destiny! Read how Orla and Jethro’s story started back in the 1960s…and find out exactly how deliciously naughty these two can be!   This insta-love 50,000-word novel is filled with humor, romance, and just enough erotica to keep you coming back for more. Wed by Wednesday is the prequel to Sarah O’Rourke’s Paradise series, and like all of her books, it can be read as a standalone.

“Listen, chaste kisses are fine for what they are. Quick exchanges of affection. An innocent way to tell somebody they mean something. When you wanna show a woman that she’s what’s lighting the fire in your gut, though… quick and innocent pecks just don’t do the trick. Nah, a man goes dark and dirty for that kind of lesson. He wants his woman wet and hot. And he wants her that way everywhere. Her mouth. Her core. Everywhere.”




“Thirty- one?” Orla echoed faintly. “He’s thirty-one?” The longer Nellie talked, the less this man sounded like the one she’d been corresponding with for weeks.   Why, her Jethro, was sweet and soft-spoken, and certainly not as old as thirty-one. No. Her Jethro was nothing like the animal the older woman was describing.

“Yes, ma’am.   He surely is. I changed that rascal’s diapers myself,” Nellie announced with a decisive nod, her eyes widening as she apparently noticed the surprise on young Orla’s face. “What?” You mean to say that you didn’t know how old your beau was?”

“Well, not his exact age. I mean, his letters indicated he was older than me. I just assumed there were only a few years between us,” Orla confided in a strangled whisper. Hells bells! Her future husband had over a whole decade’s experience on her. What in the world about her would attract a worldly, well-off man like him? “Why hasn’t he wed before now then?” she asked without realizing she’d spoken out loud.

Nellie was quick with an answer to her question, however. “Oh, many a girl around these parts have tried to lasso Jethro’s heart, but that surly demeanor of his runs all decent women right off his scent once they get a whiff of how crabby he is for two thirds the day.”

“What’s he doin’ for the other third?” Orla asked shakily.

“Oh, he’s sleepin’. Collectin’ his strength so he can keep his title as the world’s most boorish bachelor and all such manner of things. Truly, ‘bout the only time I’ve heard him stay civil for more than fifteen minutes is the hour long sermon we all sit through once a week at the church. And maybe once or twice a year when he’s paying his respects at his dear departed momma and daddy’s grave or something such. Otherwise, he’s blunt as a hammer and speaks with a tongue sharper than any knife you’ll ever come across.”

Who is Sarah?   Sarah O’Rourke is actually two besties who live three states apart and write at all hours of the day and night! Born and raised in the Southern United States, they are overly attached to their one-click accounts, can’t make it through the day without copious doses of caffeine, and spend way too much time on the phone with each other.  Between them, they have four children and twenty years of marriage…one to a super soldier and the other to egomaniac engineer. They hate empty chocolate wrappers and writer’s block, love to talk to readers…and oh, by the way, they write about strong, kick-ass women and hot alpha heroes!

#Review – Awoken (The Lucidites -Book #1) by Sarah Noffke



Around the world humans are hallucinating after sleepless nights.

In a sterile, underground institute the forecasters keep reporting the same events.

And in the backwoods of Texas, a sixteen-year-old girl is about to be caught up in a fierce, ethereal battle.

Meet Roya Stark. She drowns every night in her dreams, spends her hours reading classic literature to avoid her family’s ridicule, and is prone to premonitions—which are becoming more frequent. And now her dreams are filled with strangers offering to reveal what she has always wanted to know: Who is she? That’s the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out. But will Roya live to regret learning the truth?

Melinda's Review

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

I enjoyed the narrator they did a great job I felt as if I was there watching things unfold I felt every emotion Roya or any of them were going through.

Roya Stark never really felt like she fit in was always kind of on the outside. Wasn’t sure of her purpose until she was told what she was born to do. Now the world as she knows it is turned upside down and past lies come out. Can she handle all that is being thrown at her or will she give up.

There were so many characters in this book each one had something great a few had their moments. The evil ones played the part well and there were some I just wasn’t sure could be trusted. The complexities of these different characters were amazing. I absolutely loved Roya’s uncles. Then there was Ren well what can I say about shim I absolutely love him. Sorry I actually read the Ren books before listening this this series so he is and will always be a favorite.

There was so much going on with this I hated to turn it off at any point I needed to keep going. Between the training, Roya’s love interest, and everything going on around the institute I so wanted to keep it going. Sarah Noffke has a way of drawing me into the story like I am there actually a part of it not just watching from a distance. I could see each hallway, each door, room, everything of the institute as if I were walking the halls next to Roya. This had me so enthralled that I had to start the next book as soon as I finished this one. I could not wait to jump into continue the story I had to know what was going to happen next.

#Review – When I’m With You (Hope Town #3) by Harper Sloan




It’s nearly impossible to be surrounded by love but not understand it. My parents, my sister, and just about everyone around us has no trouble accepting that love. To give your trust to someone else and believe they would die before hurting you. I’ve witnessed it—I’ve seen the power of it—but I’ve also seen the pain. Because for me, I’ve only loved someone I could never have, and my biggest fear is that by giving her my love, all I would do is ruin her. I should have tried harder, but I’m not sure I can because I only feel complete when I’m with her.


The only time I feel like I belong is when he’s near. His infectious smile warms me straight to my bones. Any insecurities I have vanish with just a wink from him. A sliver of his attention makes me feel invincible. But all it took was one drunken night of truths for me to lose everything I had begun to crave. Now, I’m not sure how to move on because I only feel complete when I’m with him.

He said I was too young. I said he was perfect. He said our families wouldn’t understand. I said we could weather any storm. He said he would ruin me. And he was right.

This is an audible review

I have enjoyed this series as much as the Corps series and probably a little more because of the fact we get to see the guys dealing with the issues of their kids. This is one of my favorite Hope Town stories mainly because I get to see my favorite male Maddox deal with his daughter relationship and not just a relationship with anyone but with Nate Reid, son of Axel.

Emberlyn has always known Nate was her one and only but trying to tell that to Nate was the difficult part. The age difference and the fact she was Maddox’s daughter had Nate running when Emberlyn opened her heart up to him and he crushed it to little pieces. When he finally realized what she meant to him and how right she was he was determined to show her he would never hurt her again. He was on a mission to win her trust and heart back.

This was a good one to listen to on audio the narrators did a good job and I liked the duel narration. The story line was great and flowed well the chemistry between Nate and Emberlyn was off the charts. Being able to see all the families was amazing too. I so enjoyed seeing them all it’s like being at a family reunion and seeing everyone growing up and maturing seeing the families expanding. If you have not read the Corps series start there you will not be sorry. These families are amazing they will become a part of you, grow on you, and you will want to keep up with them. I know I sure do. I cannot wait for more of the kids.

I’m Lana, a life long Texan, dog lover, and writer of sensual romance. When I say ‘sensual romance’ I mean I include real life in my stories, and real life includes sex.

I divide my time between Austin Texas and a small family ranch not far from Shiner. Shiner is the home of Shiner beer, I’ve been known to stop off at their tasting room before rolling up my sleeves to get to work on the ranch. Like many Texans I’ve got a bit of everything in me, German, Native American, and some Creole influence. Nothing like a little spice to liven things up.

Writing is much like reading, I need to feel the story in the same way a reader would. I adore leading men who are strong, but aren’t afraid to love. My goal is to fall in love as I write, it’s the only way my reader will as well.

Come with me and get to know a hot cowboy or two. It’ll be fun!

#ReleaseBlitz – The Silent Waters by Brittainy C. Cherry




Title: The Silent Waters
Series: Romance Elements #3
Author: Brittainy C. Cherry
Genre: Romance
 Release Date: September 22, 2016


Moments.Our lives are a collection of moments. Some utterly painful and full of yesterday’s hurts. Some beautifully hopeful and full of tomorrow’s promises.

I’ve had many moments in my lifetime, moments that changed me, challenged me. Moments that scared me and engulfed me. However, the biggest ones—the most heartbreaking and breathtaking ones—all included him.

I was ten years old when I lost my voice. A piece of me was stolen away, and the only person who could truly hear my silence was Brooks Griffin. He was the light during my dark days, the promise of tomorrow, until tragedy found him. Tragedy that eventually drowned him in a sea of memories.

This is the story of a boy and girl who loved each other, but didn’t love themselves. A story of life and death. Of love and broken promises.

Of moments.

(Book Three in the Elements Series. Complete Standalone.)

angies review

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

This book I have been waiting for.  This book I have been excited for.  I mean this is Owen and Daisy who needed their HEA.  Daisy was stripped of her humanity and we need her to be normal for our Owen.  As utterly excited as I was for this story, I was really kind of let down and sad.  I don’t know if it was because I was expecting something different or what but I am just left kinda flat with the series finale.

I felt like the book was essentially 2 separate stories…Levi and the guys dealing with the Drago’s to help Daisy while Allie and the girls fighting creatures for an herb to help Daisy.  So yeah……It was a little slow at times and I was wishing for more…what more I don’t know exactly but just more………..Do I love Owen??  OMG YES!  He is so amazing and caring and just utterly perfect.  Do I Love Daisy?  YES YES YES and I think she is the perfect person for Owen.  Did I love seeing everyone again?  YES!!!  Seeing Jared having issues with Vera cracked me up.  Seeing Allie and Levi still in love and still as feisty as ever was great.  I guess I just wished the last couple of chapters wouldn’t have been the “meat and potatoes of the book.”  There was so much build up and then the book just ended????  It seemed a little too rushed to tie it up for me….maybe that is it????

I will defiantly stay up to date with the author because I love her series and all the spin offs.  Knowing that Hailey is going to get her series next made my heart happy.  I can’t wait for her story!!!

Never agree to a road trip to New Orleans with your roommate. At least not when your roommate is dragging you along while she reconnects with an ex-boyfriend. Possible consequences of failing to take my advice:

1) Unknowingly going out with a vampire stripper
2) Getting kidnapped by said vampire’s nest mates
3) Falling head over heels for your winged hero

Believe it or not number 3 is the worst one, especially when no one believes you that he exists.

There’s danger in the beauty…

Two years, six months, and twenty-five days. That’s how long it had been since I’d seen my winged hero— not that I’d been counting. I’d suffered through years of counseling just to convince my friends and family that I wasn’t crazy and knew he didn’t exist.

But he did. And I was done waiting.

Days after college graduation I headed back down to New Orleans to retrace my steps and find Owen again only to find my life was about to get even crazier… thanks to the most beautiful and dangerous of all paranormal creatures, the Allures.

#Review – Nitro’s Torment by Nina Levine



The Sydney Storm MC are back and war is coming.

Nitro’s Torment takes the Storm MC to a new level. Dark, gritty and fast-paced, this book is an adrenaline ride right to the very last page.

Tatum Lee is a pain in my ass.
She’s stubborn, full of attitude, and she doesn’t like to do what she’s told.
And yet, at a time when I should be focusing on the war my club is at, she consumes my mind because she’s also fearless and fierce, and I’ve never met a woman like her.

The thing about war, though, is the minute you let your focus drop, your enemy rises up and attacks. And sometimes they bring you to your knees in ways you never imagined.

The other thing about war? You learn just what you’re capable of doing to protect those you love.

Melinda's Review

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

This is a fast pace story that grabbed me from the get go and had me hanging on from the opening scenes. There is violence, grit, and so much emotion that went from dark places to making my heart go pitter patter and I even found myself cracking up at times.

Nitro and Tatum both have dark demons they are fighting to keep hidden. Nitro is not only loyal to his club but also to his family. He will protect and avenge anyone of them he is not a man that should be crossed he will not back down or give in. Tatum is feisty strong willed and doesn’t back down to anyone,. She is on a mission seeking revenge for her brother only to realize she is in over her head when Nitro happens to save her. I love Tatum no matter how scared she is she never shows it and still stands up for herself no matter who she is face to face with.

The relationship Tatum has with her cousin/BFF is the best every girl needs a woman like her in their life. Watching Tatum when she was around the club families was amazing the way she jumped in and helped out when needed. The thing that made me fall for Tatum was how she was with Nitro’s family. I enjoyed seeing the other side of Nitro when he was around his family and Tatum. Just when things were going good Nitro’s past comes back and threatens to destroy not only Nitros family and relationship but also his relationship with his brothers. Will he be able to fight his demons and save all three or will he loose this battle.

I am enjoying this series and cannot wait for more of these guys. The angst of what the club is going through I need to know more and I need to know more about these sexy bikers.
