Cover Reveal for TOXIC (Torn #4) by Author K.A. Robinson!


True love is forever. After years of chasing his best friend, Chloe, Logan finally managed to win her heart—or so he thought. His world crashes down around him when she confesses to cheating on him with a local rock star, Drake. Unable to let her go completely from his life, Logan reassumes his role of best friend while he watches Chloe find her happily ever after with another man. Each day, he sinks further and further into his depression, and the kind, caring Logan he once was dies. When Jade, a member of Drake’s band, inserts herself into his life, Logan never expects to fall for her. He’s too broken, too damaged.

                Jade ran away from home when she was seventeen, desperate to escape her abusive stepfather and her controlling boyfriend, Mikey. The only regret she has is that she left behind her little sister, Bethaney. When Jade’s band, Breaking the Hunger, hits it big, she vows to go back to her hometown not only to reconnect with her little sister, but also to show her stepfather that she’s not worthless like he said.

                The moment Jade saw Logan, she knew she wanted him. Unfortunately, he was with Chloe at the time. After his world falls apart, Jade steps in to comfort him, determined to bring back the Logan she once knew.

                Sometimes, you find true love with the person you never least expect. Can Logan and Jade heal each other? Or will they forever be changed by their toxic pasts?
 
Toxic: Logan's Story is Book Four of the Torn Series, but it can be read as a standalone if desired.

Cover Reveal for TIED (Tangled #4) by Author Emma Chase!





SUMMARY
In the fourth sexy romance by the New York Times bestselling author of Tangled and Twisted, Drew and Kate can’t wait to tie the knot—if they can survive the pre-wedding festivities.

For most of my life, I never imagined I’d get married. But Kate did the impossible: she changed me. I think we can all agree I was pretty frigging awesome before, but now I’m even better.

The road to this day wasn’t all rainbows and boners. There were mistakes and
misunderstandings worthy of a Greek tragedy. But Kate and I made it through with our inexhaustible lust, boundless admiration, and everlasting love for one another intact.

That being said, there were some unexpected incidents in Vegas last weekend that could have been a problem. It was kind of…my final test.

I know what you’re thinking—what the hell did you do this time? Relax. Let’s not judge, or call for my castration, until you’ve heard the whole story.

And hold on tight, because you’re in for a wild ride. Did you expect anything less?

Release Day Blitz for DON'T LOOK BACK by Author Jennifer L. Armentrout!



don't look
back



BUY LINKS:




EXCERPT:

I didn’t recognize the name on the street sign. Nothing about the rural road looked familiar or

friendly. Tall, imposing trees and overgrown weeds choked the front of the dilapidated home.

Windows were boarded up. There was a gaping hole where the front door had been. I shivered,

wanting to be far away from here…wherever here was.

Walking felt harder than it should be, and I stumbled off the chilly asphalt, wincing as

sharp gravel dug into my feet.

My bare feet?

I stopped and looked down. Chipped pink nail polish peeked through the dirt…and blood.

Mud caked the legs of my pants, leaving the hems stiff. It made sense, seeing as how I wasn’t

wearing any shoes, but the blood…I didn’t understand why there was blood staining the knees of

my jeans.

My vision clouded and dulled, as if a gray film had been dropped over my eyes. As I

stared at the weathered asphalt under my feet, large and smooth rocks replaced the tiny stones.

Something dark and oily seeped over the rocks, slipping through the cracks.

Sucking in a sharp gasp, I blinked and the image was gone.

Hands trembling, I raised them. They were also covered with dirt and scratches. My nails

were broken, bloodied. A silver ring wrapped, encased in soil, around my thumb. Air froze in my

chest as my gaze crawled over my arms. The sleeves of my sweater were torn, revealing pale

flesh covered in bruises and gashes. My legs started to shake as I swayed forward. I tried to

remember how this had happened, but my head was empty—a black void where nothing existed.

A car drove by, coasting to a stop a few feet in front of me. Somewhere in the trenches of

my subconscious, I recognized the flashing red and blue lights as a source of safety. Elegantly

scrawled along the black-and-gray side of the cruiser were the words ADAMS COUNTY SHERIFF’S

DEPARTMENT.

Adams County? A flash of familiarity came and went.

The driver’s door opened, and a deputy stepped out. He said something into the radio on

his shoulder before he looked at me.

“Miss?” He started around the cruiser, taking tentative steps. He looked young for a

deputy. Barely out of high school and able to carry a gun seemed wrong somehow. Was I in high

school? I didn’t know. “We’ve received some calls into dispatch concerning you,” he said

gently. “Are you okay?”

I tried to respond, but only a hoarse squeak came out. Clearing my throat, I winced as the

motion scratched and pulled. “I…I don’t know.”

“Okay.” The deputy held up his hands as he approached me, as if I were a skittish deer

about to bolt. “My name is Deputy Rhode. I’m here to help you. Do you know what you’re doing

out here?”

“No.” Knots formed in my belly. I didn’t even know where here was.

His smile strained. “What’s your name?”

My name? Everyone knew their name, but as I stared at the deputy, I couldn’t answer his

question. The knots started twisting more. “I don’t…I don’t know what my name is.”

He blinked, and the smile was completely gone. “You don’t remember anything?”

I tried again, concentrating on the empty space between my ears. That was how it felt.

And I knew that wasn’t good. My eyes started to tear up.

“Miss, it’s okay. We’ll get you taken care of.” He reached out, lightly taking hold of my

arm. “We’ll get this sorted.”

Deputy Rhode led me around the back of his cruiser. I didn’t want to sit behind the

Plexiglas, because I knew that wasn’t good. Only bad people sat behind the glass in police

cruisers. I wanted to object, but before I could say anything, he settled me into the seat and

wrapped a coarse blanket around my shoulders.

Before he locked me in the bad part of the car, he knelt and smiled reassuringly.

“Everything’s going to be okay.”

But I knew he was lying, trying to make me feel better. It didn’t work. How could

everything be okay when I didn’t know my own name?



ABOUT DON’T LOOK BACK:

Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all—popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.

Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it's one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took "mean girl" to a whole new level, and it's clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She's getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she's falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her—even if the old Sam treated him like trash.

But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn't just buried deep inside of Sam's memory—someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?

“This engrossing thriller packs a heady atmospheric punch with plenty of theatrical scares,” Kirkus Reviews

“Armentrout has written another winner. From the first page to the last, she builds both terror and confusion to the point where readers will be hooked and on the edge of their seat. This standalone contains all of Armentrout’s usual trademarks– a strong and determined heroine, witty comments and hot guys–but she adds in an extra layer by ratcheting up the suspense to the highest degree and follows it up with an ending no one will see coming.” RT BOOK REVIEWS 4 1/2 Stars TOP PICK

Release Day Blast for VITAL SIGN by Author J.I. Mac!





I used to have a great life. My little world was bright. I had no complaints. My perfectly simple life made the fall from grace that much more devastating. I plummeted from the heavenly little bubble that I shared with Jake. I fell fast and hard straight into the fiery pits of hell. The knowledge of how things used to be is a bittersweet torture that refuses me even one moment of respite. I live in a painful reverie that I can’t escape.
I had it good once.
That’s gone now.
All of it disappeared like vapor into the ether. I’m a lost woman, wandering through grief and struggling to come to terms with my new title: widow. My family says I need understanding and closure. I say a cigarette and a bottle of wine is a much better option for instant gratification.
I’m the awkward, depressed one standing in the corner making everyone around me miserably uncomfortable. I’m the one with vacant eyes that society strives to help but can’t. I’m the one who hands out tight smiles and derisive snorts. I’m the widow adrift in this world with no direction. No meaning. No hope. No vital sign.

***

Sadie sets out on a journey to healing without knowing that things will get far worse before they get better. Despite her general indifference to organ donation, she finds herself on a journey to seek out the only people who benefited from her husband’s tragic death.
Resentment runs rampant as she meets the thriving organ recipients. Anger and jealousy spiral, sending the delicate structure of Sadie’s emotions into a tailspin.
Alexander McBride got a second chance—one that he didn’t necessarily want. Alexander is a game changer for Sadie. She hates him for his health but can’t help feeling at home in his presence. He soothes her grief in a way that is intoxicating, addictive even.
The heart that once fell in love with her now resides in Alexander McBride’s chest. It’s a circumstance that forces her to wage an internal war fueled by grief, anger, guilt, love, lust, and loyalty.
Sadie must discover the things that are vital to going on with her life if she has any hope of finding her way through the all-consuming grief that dominates every waking moment.




He looks at me, taking his time as his eyes drag over me from head to toe. “Not so smart today, Sadie.”

“What?” My eyes widen a little showing my confusion.

Zander’s eyes glance to my free hand. “No mace.”

I lower my head looking to my empty hand. “I’m not scared of you,” I admit, inwardly wondering exactly what that means to me.


“Are you sure?” Zander’s voice has taken on a sultry, husky tone.

“Yeah,” I breathe.

“Maybe you should be.” An unmistakable look of regret fills Zander’s eyes, making me curious where it has come from. Seeing that look on his handsome face makes me want to make it better. It makes me want to pull him to me, to wrap myself around him and vow on my life to guard him from all the bad that the world has to offer.

Cover Reveal for THE MADAM (VIP #2) by Author M. Robinson!




The Madam - Book II of The VIP Trilogy
Available May 19th, 2014
 
Some people need love…

I need sex, money, control, and power.

Anyone could have those four things, but only one could have VIP. Becoming
Madam was never a choice for me, it was a mandated order from the
most powerful woman I knew- my mother. I was born to fill her shoes,
never to make mistakes, or to show weakness.

You are the product of your environment. They say the apple doesn't fall
far from the tree; you learn from what you see, not from what you're
told. Nature vs. Nurture. I learned from it all; what I saw, what I
didn't see, what I was told, and from reading between the lines.


I was raised with the belief that the world spun ONLY because of me. I
held power as far back as I can remember, saw things no one ever
talks about, and witnessed illegal acts of sex, drugs, and money by
the time I was eighteen.

You saw a glimpse of me in VIP, now see it from the beginning. Enter my
world where anything goes; no judgments, no remorse, no guilt. You
play by my rules, or you don’t play at all. There are no limits to
what I can do, or to what I can show you…I will ensure my legacy my
any means necessary.

My name is Lilith Veronica Stone, and I am The Madam.

Warning: Book contains adult situations.


Dark content/sex/drugs/language. Mature readers only.

Blog Tour and Giveaway for BREAKING ALEXANDRIA by Author K.A. Robinson!!!




Synopsis:


Alexandria’s drug-dealing boyfriend, Joel, isn’t exactly the white knight she’s always dreamed of, but she can’t deny the crazy connection they have. She would do anything for him, including helping him sell drugs in order to fit perfectly into his world.

After catching Alexandria dealing for Joel, instead of turning her into the cops, Alexandria’s mother forces her to move to her grandparents’ farm in West Virginia. Spending the summer in the country, away from Joel, is the last thing Alexandria wants to do. But lucky for her, the sexy farmhand, Landon, who helps out around her grandparents’ place, is a very nice distraction. She tries her best to ignore her attraction to him, especially since she still loves Joel.

When Joel does the unforgivable, Alexandria turns to her new friend, Landon, for comfort, and it ignites an undeniable spark of attraction between them. Soon, she finds herself caught between two very different men, and the struggles within her heart just might end up breaking Alexandria.

Our Review:


**ARC kindly provided by author for an honest review**

Grab your tissues ladies and gentlemen because your going to need them. I have learned that all of K.A. Robinson's novels contain a plot twist that always leaves me speechless and my lip trembling.

If I could only use a couple words to describe Breaking Alexandria I would use the word self discovery.

Alexandria is dating Joel, who is a drug dealer, living in a carefree world. Dating Joel makes Alexandria feel invincible. She views her relationship as the forever kind, she would do anything for Joel. It seems that Alexandria and Joel are more like Bonnie and Clyde. Alexandria thinks that she has her life all figured out. At the time is believes that she is happy and content with her life. That was until Alexandria was caught by her mother dealing drugs for Joel. Instead of turning her and her boyfriend into the police, her mother chose to send Alexandria to spend the summer at her grandparents' farm in West Virginia. Alexandria hated her mother and tried to runaway with Joel, but that attempt was unsuccessful.

Alexandria (LEXI)is now in West Virginia for the summer. To her this is living hell because her grandfather is bound and determined to make her life miserable. She has to endure manual labor on the farm, but her grandmother's kindness is her saving grace.

Her grandfather assigns Landon to monitor Lexi and make sure she does what is expected of her. At first Lexi wants nothing to do with Landon. She is so caught up with Joel at this point that she couldn't realize a good thing if it hit her between the eyes. Landon is a sweet, down to earth, gorgeous country boy through and through. Little did Lexi know that Landon would be the one to show the city girl that her current life is not influenced by her own decisions. Lexi never realized that maybe she is the way she is due to Joel. Maybe what she viewed as happiness before really wasn't? Maybe she thought she was happy because she was making Joel happy? Will she realize that her life is not how she really planned for it to be?

This causes Lexi to really analyze her life and her decisions like never before. Lexi starts to question what really makes her happy and who brings out the best in her: Joel or Landon? No matter what she does she just can't let Joel go. He is her everything or at least she thought he was. She comes to the shocking realization that maybe Joel's feelings are not mutual and that maybe Landon is her right match.

A huge plot twist leaves Lexi numb. She immediately hates herself for the decisions she has made and feels that she needs to repent. This was the straw that broke the camel's back, so to speak. Sometimes people have to hit a wall running full force and get knocked on their a** to finally step back and do some soul searching, but that does not mean other people will not get hurt along the way. At this point Lexi doesn't know who she is or who she wants to be, all she can do is wallow in her self pity. She has completely shut out everyone in her life without thinking how it will affect the people who care about her the most. However there is good that does come from it. This situation allows Lexi to find herself, to slowly put the pieces of her life together. This does not mean that she is making all the right decisions, but it is a start. Unfortunately for Lexi it usually takes a tragedy to cause her to realize what she wants. Now bound and determined, she knows what she wants with her life and is dead set on getting it. She will not accept no as an answer and this journey of self discovery and happy endings all started by spending a summer in West Virginia...

 Teaser:
While I had admitted earlier that Landon was cute,
nothing had prepared me to see him shirtless and wet in the pool. It was
obvious that he’d dived under right before I came out. His hair was dripping
wet, and water glistened as it ran down his chest and stomach. I knew I was standing
there with my mouth hanging open, but at that moment, I didn’t possess the
ability to close it.
