Throwback Thursday Review: The Lawman by Lily Graison (Mini Review)

Throwback Thursday Reviews on the blog is dedicated to those oldies but goodies that you just can't help but talk about, in a review of course! Shed some light on some of your older favorites and hopefully you'll get someone hooked on a new book, series and/or author! If you've got an oldie but goodie, share it with me! There's no such thing as "Too Many Books!"

Format: .mobi (was free at the time I got it from Amazon)
Release Date: November 23, 2011

On the run from her ex-lover...

Jilted by a no-show husband...

And now mistaken for a whore in the Diamond Back Saloon...


Abigail Thornton doesn't think things can get any worse. That is until a single slap to a man's face starts a barroom brawl that lands her in the last place she expected to be.

Town Marshal Morgan Avery wants nothing more than to wash away the trail-dust and sleep for a week, preferably with a soft, willing woman by his side. Instead, he gets Abigail Thornton - all one hundred pounds of her thrust at him seconds before a fist connects with his face. Breaking up the fight takes more effort than he wants to admit and when the last man falls he finds Abigail still standing and not looking the least bit contrite.

Throwing her into the town jail for the night would salve his wounded pride and then he will let her go. Or that was the plan. When morning comes he finds himself oddly reluctant to do so. Miss Thornton is hiding something and he aims to find out what, even if he has to bed her to do so. But will one night in her bed be enough?

Another great free find, The Lawman joins a very small list of my favorite Western romances. There aren't all that many romances that take place in the wild west and even fewer that I've enjoyed. Just the opening scene itself had me laughing and loving the heroine Abigail. For crying out loud, she starts a barroom brawl and doesn't show an ounce of shame over getting the town Marshal, Morgan knocked out over it either! It's clear she's on the run from something but she doesn't let her fears dim her combative spirit, she faces Morgan head on and it's really a clash of wills between those two from the very beginning.

Review: What the Groom Wants by Jade Lee

Format: .mobi (Provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review)
Release Date: February 4, 2014

An honest love...

Radley Lyncott has been in love with Wendy Drew as long as he can remember. When he went to sea, she was too young to court. Now that he's returned to take up his Welsh title, he is appalled to find that debt has ruined the Drew family, and—even worse—Wendy is being courted by another man.

Or a dangerous attraction?

Family comes first for seamstress Wendy Drew, who is forced to settle her brother's debt by working nights at a notorious gambling den. But her double-life hasn't gone unnoticed—she has captivated none other than Demon Damon, a nefarious rake who understands Wendy's darkest desires and is hell bent on luring her into his arms.


I have to give props to author Jade Lee for creating such a drama filled, character driven story that kept me wondering and guessing from the very beginning!

Review: Vengeful in Love by Nadia Lee

Format: .mobi (Was free at the time I got it)
Release Date: January 11, 2014

Revenge is sweet...

Self-made billionaire Alex Damon wants his pound of flesh from the people who ripped his family apart. When he discovers his enemies' daughter is working at his company -- and most likely spying for them--he decides to start his revenge by seducing her.

Natalie Hall is stunned at the personal interest from the CEO of her company. Vulnerable, with an already bruised heart, she wants to avoid any involvement--but she can't deny the desire he arouses in her.

...but love is sweeter...

What should've been a straightforward eye-for-an-eye starts to unravel as Natalie's unflinching loyalty and kindness begin to thaw Alex's cold intent. But caring for her is unthinkable...since he plans to use everything in his power to ruin her family and everyone else she holds dear.

This is why you shouldn't ignore those freebies on Amazon! Yes, Vengeful in Love is another "Amazon Freebie" success for me! True, it doesn't happen often but when it does it's so worth it!

Book Blind Date #52



Book Blind Date is something that Danielle from Book Whore Blog and I decided to start after seeing a Facebook post on the Lawrence Public Library Page about a book blind date. This really got us thinking, what if the only thing you new about a book was what the story was about? No character names, no pretty covers to suck you in.

Here's how it works, you know the old saying never judge a book by its cover? Well you won't be able to, for this meme you are going to decide which book you would go on a "date" with based on the synopsis. Names and identifying phrases are removed just to make things fair. The only rule is: No Googling the synopsis, you have to pick a "date" based on what you read below.



Last Week's Blind Dates:
Big Sky Secrets (Hqn)
Rekindled (Titanium Security Series)


Blind Date #1
What if the steps they take to avoid marriage...

The last thing A**** M********, newly titled Earl of Balfour, wants is a society wife, though he has agreed to squire Boston heiress H***** C***** about the London ballrooms. When he's met that obligation, he'll return to the Highlands, and resume the myriad responsibilities awaiting him there.


...Lead instead to impossible love?

At her step-father's insistence, H***** C***** must endure a London season, though she has no intention of surrendering her inheritance to a fortune hunter. When she's done her duty, she'll return to Boston and the siblings who depend upon her for their safety... or will she? The taciturn Scottish earl suits her purposes admirably-until genuine liking and unexpected passion bring A**** and H***** close. For if the Scottish earl and the American heiress fall in love, an ocean of differences threatens to keep them apart.



Blind Date #2
Lady G**** M****'s ample inheritance has made it impossible for her to tell whether a suitor is in love with her— or enamored of her riches. Who better to distinguish beau from blackguard than her notorious childhood friend, the Duke of L********?

With no interest in marriage, L******** has long lived only for pleasure. He sees little harm in helping G**** find a proper match. He simply has to teach the lovely innocent all the ploys a scoundrel uses to gain a woman's favor— by demonstrating his wicked ways. But as lessons lead to torrid passion and G**** becomes ensnared in another man's marriage plot, L******** must wage a desperate gamble: Open his heart fully—or risk losing the woman he adores.


Each Monday you can join in and set up your own book blind date. Just link back to this blog and Danielle's blog. To join in just try the following.

1. Select a 2 books to be the "blind dates"

ARC Review: Reckless Weekend by Eden Summers

Format: .mobi (provided by author in exchange for an honest review)
Release Date: March 7, 2014

In Vegas, a lot can happen in twenty-four hours.

What do you get when you mix a rock band as hot as Reckless Beat, women strong enough to capture several of the bad boys’ hearts, and a bet that sparks a competitive streak?

Boundaries will be pushed, alcohol will be abused, and loads of sarcasm will be shared.

Once the games are over, it’s time to make a commitment. But love in the limelight is never easy. The past is trying to catch up with the present, and the pressure may be too hard to handle.

Seduction, torment, laughter, and heartbreak—one reckless weekend will test each member of the band and the women who’ve claimed their love.

Leave it to the guys of rock band Reckless Beat to simultaneously make a reader laugh, cry and want to strangle them, hot or not!

This week's TOP OFF TUESDAY selection is: Blind Faith by Rebecca Zanetti

A betrayal he couldn't forget . . .

For Nate Dean, love is a four-letter word. As part of a secret black-ops military unit, he and his brothers were genetically engineered by the government to be ruthless soldiers with an expiration date. They were loyal only to one another . . . until Nate laid eyes on the woman who stole his heart and blew his world apart. Now, years later, his family is still paying the price for his mistake. But as time runs out, there's only one person who can save his family: the very woman Nate swore he'd never trust again.

A love she couldn't deny . . .

The moment Audrey Madison spies Nate across a crowded ballroom, she can barely breathe. He's just as undeniably sexy as she remembers, yet there's an edge to him now that's as irresistible as it is dangerous. When he asks for her help, Audrey can't refuse. But she has secrets of her own--secrets that, if Nate ever discovers them, may cost them both their lives . . .

Promo Post: Have you met Jack and Sara yet?

Author Liz Crowe is celebrating the re-release of the first three books in the Stewart Realty series. Originally intended as a trilogy surrounding Jack Gordon and Sara Thornton, Floor Time, Sweat Equity and Closing Costs brought to readers something different, something real and it's no surprise that fans wanted more.

Liz is currently doing a blog tour from February 14 to March 15 and giving away one really awesome prize pack including the aforementioned trilogy, swag pack and more! You can check out the start of the tour on this very blog! Also, for the length of the tour, the e-book version of Good Faith, the final book in the Stewart Realty series is on sale for ONLY .99 so grab your copy!


Stewart Realty: Life in the House Lane

Love is an easy word to use, a hard one to demonstrate, and sometimes impossible to trust.

The Stewart Realty series is a sweeping epic, encompassing many years in the lives of two people who know how to love with their bodies, how to please and get pleasure, to control and be controlled. When it comes to the deeper meaning of the one word they both need, backgrounds and personalities get in the way. While their physical connection sizzles they somehow manage to continuously disappoint one another on an emotional level.

Jack Gordon has it all—money, success, a string of women—but also a deep longing for something more. When he thinks he finds it with Sara Jane Thornton, his world is never the same again. Sara releases a side of himself he considered buried out of frustration and unhappiness. Sara soon learns that she must trust him implicitly, something she cannot do, no matter how many times she tries...and he fails.
With a rich cast of secondary characters, including a young man who presents a near-perfect foil to Jack's intensity, and who falls hard for Sara, The Stewart Realty series is a saga with an emphasis on contemporary life with a healthy dose of realistic eroticism. A tale of modern, busy, driven people seeking the ever-elusive and highly coveted combination—a friend, lover and trusted companion who will be there for the long haul.
Start at the beginning, with the Jack and Sara Trilogy, now for the first time ever in a print anthology. The Stewart Realty series is a best seller in family saga and urban fiction categories. See for yourself what the buzz is all about.

Last Week's Blind Dates:
Midnight's Temptation (Dark Warriors)



Blind Date #1
Self-made tycoon L***** S***** heads to Hangman Bend's Ranch to sell his land to his brother Z***. Though he's got cowboy in his blood, L***** plans to return to city life before the dust even settles on his boots. Of course, he didn't count on falling for Big Sky Country…or R** M******.

R**'s starting to settle into country life herself…until she has a close encounter of the terrifying kind with a buffalo. Turns out the peeping monster belongs to the cowboy next door—and he has her running even more scared than his bison. She wants a home where the buffalo don't roam, and the men don't either. Could L*****'s homecoming be her heart's undoing?


Blind Date #2
He left her when she needed him most…

Four years ago, Dr. G**** F***** lost everything that mattered in a terrorist attack she barely survived. Now she’s stronger than ever and in Pakistan with a UN-sanctioned team for the most important assignment of her career. She’s dedicated her life to eradicating the world of chemical weapons, and long ago accepted the inherent risks associated with her job. Until the man whose memory has haunted her for so long suddenly reappears and inadvertently makes her the target of one of the most dangerous terrorists on the planet. Forced to accept A***’s protection, it’s impossible to deny the white-hot attraction still burning between them. And while she trusts him to guard her from this new threat, G**** must once again decide whether to risk her heart to the man who once shattered her entire world.

Now he’ll risk everything to win her back…

Four years ago, NSA agent A*** R****** left G**** because had no choice. But never again. M**** H****** has escaped custody, he’s on the run, and has locked onto G**** as a means to target A***. This time A*** will do whatever it takes to protect her—and convince her to give them another chance. Walking away from her nearly destroyed him and now that she’s back in his life, he can’t let her go. When the unthinkable happens and G****’s life hangs in the balance, he’ll sacrifice everything to save her—including himself.

Blog Tour: The Stewart Realty Trilogy by Liz Crowe (Interview, Top 10 List + Giveaway)!

It's a well known fact that I just adore Liz Crowe's books. They are beyond unique and not for everyone. In fact I'd say that they're books that are for the brave reader. The one who isn't afraid to step outside of their comfort zone and try something that doesn't follow any formula. I have personally experienced a wide range of emotions with her Stewart Realty series: Excitement, anger, frustration, humor, joy and heartbreak. I am so honored to be part of Liz's blog tour to celebrate the re-release, yes you read right, the re-release of the first three books of the Stewart Realty series. Floor Time, Sweat Equity and Closing Costs were originally supposed to just be a trilogy but thankfully someone recognized the potential for something different and they grew into a multi book series and became Liz's best selling series to date.

I am happy to not only have Liz on the blog again but also a top ten list which is rather humorous for those who are familiar with the Gordon family and a giveaway. So sit back and enjoy the ride, I've got a ton of information for you today and TWO giveaways, one tour wide and one just for visitors of today's post.

Also, for the length of this tour, Liz's book GOOD FAITH will be only .99 in e-book format! Grab it while you can!

About Liz Crowe:
Amazon best-selling author, beer blogger and beer marketing expert, mom of three, and soccer fan, Liz lives in the great Midwest, in a major college town. She has decades of experience in sales and fund raising, plus an eight-year stint as a three-continent, ex-pat trailing spouse. While working as a successful Realtor, Liz made the leap into writing novels about the same time she agreed to take on marketing and sales for the Wolverine State Brewing Company.

Most days find her sweating inventory and sales figures for the brewery, unless she’s writing, editing or sweating promotional efforts for her latest publications.

Her early forays into the publishing world led to a groundbreaking fiction subgenre, “Romance for Real Life,” which has gained thousands of fans and followers interested less in the “HEA” and more in the “WHA” (“What Happens After?”). More recently she is garnering even more fans across genres with her latest novels, which are more character-driven fiction, while remaining very much “real life.”

With stories set in the not-so-common worlds of breweries, on the soccer pitch, in successful real estate offices and many times in exotic locales like Istanbul, Turkey, her books are unique and told with a fresh voice. The Liz Crowe backlist has something for any reader seeking complex storylines with humor and complete casts of characters that will delight, frustrate, and linger in the imagination long after the book is finished.

If you are in the Ann Arbor area, be sure and stop into the Wolverine State Brewing Co. Tap Room—but don’t ask her for anything “like” a Bud Light, or risk serious injury.

Tour brought to you by Irresistible Reads


Format: .pdf (Provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review)
Release Date:

Revenge is a dish best served cold… while wearing heels.

April has just learned the real reason behind her boss’ impromptu dinner invitation. He only invited her to dinner with his colleagues to prove a point: that he can show up at an event with a plain Jane and still be considered ‘the man’. She expected better from him and had secretly hoped that one day their friendship would grow into something deeper. But her two best friends won’t let her wallow in her pain. They convince her to give Dr. Stewart a dose of his own medicine. The plan: show up at the dinner looking irresistible and prove to her boss that even nerd girls can be sexy. But first she has to replace her unattractive business suits with something sexier and more revealing. It’s time for a makeover.

Dr. Chad Stewart would never ‘really’ date his secretary. She was too good, to pure for someone as jaded as himself. It didn’t matter that he was half in love with her. But when he needed an ‘average date’ for a dinner party she was the first person he turned to. He thought his secretary was the perfect choice until he arrived to find her looking like his wildest fantasy. But now she knows the real reason for his invite and he can see in her eyes how hurt she is.

Can Chad convince her to forgive him for hurting her or will she walk out of his life… taking his heart with her?

Lit Connect Blog Takeover: Reckless by Skye Jordan Audio Giveaway!


It's a blog takeover by NY Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Skye Jordan. Skye is stopping by today to celebrate the brand spankin' new audio release of the RECKLESS (Renegades, #1), and gifting up to 20 free audio downloads of this first book of the series to readers.

Stay home and get seduced this Valentine's day by one sexier-than-sin, bad-boy biker, alpha stuntman (who owns his own stunt company) that won't take no for answer. When Jax makes up his mind that's he's found the women for him, a little RECKLESS behavior is sure to commence.

Listen to the first couple of chapters of RECKLESS and let the seduction commence! :)

Brought to you by LitConnect!


A couture wedding dress designer to the rich and famous, Lexi LaCroix’s image means everything. But crossing paths with a sexier-than-sin, bad-boy biker makes Lexi realize how much living she’s sacrificed for her success and one touch is all it takes to threaten her carefully choreographed life. When that touch fills far more than just Lexi’s physical needs, she finds herself torn between the career she needs and the bad-boy she craves.

Jax Chamberlin gave up the superficial life of acting for the thrill of running his own stunt company years ago. But a recent betrayal proves he’s still too close to the limelight to find a woman who doesn’t plan to use him as a stepping-stone to success. When the charming and mysterious Lexi offers him a totally anonymous hook-up during an out of town trip, Jax accepts. Only Lexi is more sextacular than charming, and Jax wants more.

But Lexi’s got a major hang-up over his renegade lifestyle, and Jax isn’t willing to change his ways. Especially not when he discovers who she really is. Because if she finds out his connections could catapult her to the top of her career, he’s afraid the fantasy woman he’s falling for might just end up like all the other gold-diggers. And this time, it’s not just his bad-boy reputation at risk, but his heart, too.

The rough and ready stuntmen of Renegades are experts in the fine art of death and destruction on the big screen. The best of the worst.

Review: Feel the Rush by Kelsie Leverich

Format: .mobi (provided by publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review)
Release Date: August 20, 2013

Picking the wrong men is a talent Meagan Mitchell has perfected. She’s sweet, confident, beautiful—and single. With her thirtieth birthday sneaking up on her, she needs a new plan. No more Mr. Wrongs or Mr. Bads. It’s time to find Mr. Safe....

Army captain Reed Porter lives for the thrill—an Airborne Jumpmaster with a rush addiction. He’s sexy and playful, and he quickly tempts Meagan with his rich Southern drawl and sinful looks. But slowing down and settling down are not on his agenda, making him exactly the type of man Meagan wants to avoid.…

As their undeniable attraction heats up, Meagan has to decide if she’s willing to risk everything on a chance at love with a reckless charmer. Is she brave enough to bet her future—and her heart—on Mr. Thrill? Or will Reed finally learn that the feeling of a safe landing is just as addicting as the rush of the fall?


First off, give this book a chance. I almost quit after 20 pages because the story managed to hit two of my "No No's" and the heroine stood dangerously close to the TSTL (Too Stupid to Live) side of my Character Line.

Review: The Countess Confessions by Jillian Hunter

Format: Bound Copy (Provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review)
Release Date: February 4, 2014

All Emily Selwick wanted was to convince the man she had adored for years that she was the woman he ought to marry. She never expected that her ill-fated deception at a party would uncover a scheme against the Crown and ensnare her in the sensual trap of an enigmatic stranger.

Damien Boscastle, the Earl of Shalcross, knows he must marry Emily to defend her honor and keep his mission secret. But, by saving her reputation, he will draw her into his arms as well as a dangerous intrigue.

After a whirlwind courtship that leaves her breathless, Emily finds herself wed to a husband who vows not only to protect her from his menacing world—but to train his wife in the pleasures of passion.


This book was a surprise to me. I LOVE historical romance, it's one of my absolute favorites but I have such a hard time finding ones that I like. The Countess Confessions is one of the few that I liked and I have added a new to me author to my list.

Waiting On Wednesday: An athlete?


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: Straddling the Line by Jaci Burton

Shhhh! Don't tell ANYONE that I'm waiting on an... *gulps* athlete. I don't like sports, in fact, I actively avoid them and sports enthusiasts alike but there is just something super sexy about Jaci Burton's Play by Play series. Maybe it's because the athletes in them are so well rounded, smart and charming that I can't stay away from them! I'm late coming to the series and I still don't have a favorite but hot damn am I looking forward to Trevor's story! But that's our little secret okay?

Trevor Shay has it all—a successful football and baseball career, and any woman he wants. But when he finds out his college mentor’s daughter is in trouble, he drops everything to come to her aid.

Haven Briscoe has finally landed a dream job as a sportscaster for a major network. But she hasn’t been able to move past the recent death of her beloved father, and it’s affecting her career. A plum assignment following the daily life of sports superstar Trevor Shay might be just the inspiration she needs.

Trevor will do anything to spark life back into Haven, including letting her into every aspect of his world. The chemistry between them flames higher than one of Trevor’s home runs and faster than his dashes to the end zone. But as they grow closer, Haven stumbles onto Trevor’s closely guarded secret, one he’s hidden his entire life. And despite his protests, now it’s Haven’s turn to put everything on hold to help Trevor. Will he let her in and trust her with a secret that could blow his professional and personal world apart?

This week's TOP OFF TUESDAY selection is: Hope Ignites by Jaci Burton
I loved the first book and the second book looks like it's going to be just as good!

When a movie crew asks to film on his cattle ranch, Logan McCormack doesn’t expect Desiree Jenkins, the young star with the bad-girl rep, to be so open, so down-to-earth, or so intimately interested in him. But the last thing a loner like Logan needs is a distraction like Des, who wouldn’t understand what it’s like to live peacefully off the land.

But it’s Logan who doesn’t understand. What Des wants is an escape from paparazzi and gossip columns, and she’s found it at Logan’s ranch. Now it’s up to her to prove that she’s like any other girl looking to be accepted for who she is. And she’s hoping that it’s by this real-life cowboy who has everything it takes—and more—to give her the kind of happily ever after that can’t be found in the movies.

Review: Turn Up the Heat anthology with stories by Lori Foster, Christie Ridgway and Victoria Dahl

Format: .mobi (provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review)
Release Date: December 31, 2013

Three sizzling tales from three bestselling authors!

Love Won't Wait by Lori Foster
Brendan "Brick" Carlisle is used to women falling at his feet, so shy waitress Merrily Loveland is a breath of fresh air—and an irresistible challenge. But before he can make his move, Merrily comes to him with an offer he can't refuse. If only their "no-strings" pact didn't leave him wanting so much more….

Beach House Beginnings by Christie Ridgway
She might have avoided Crescent Cove, California, for years, but no-nonsense Meg Alexander is confident she can handle a brief trip home. What she doesn't count on is the spark of desire she feels for Caleb McCall. Can a weekend in paradise convince her to give love a second chance?

Strong Enough to Love by Victoria Dahl
Photographer Eve Hill had always told herself that sexy Brian Stewart was off-limits. But now he's back in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and Eve can't resist their long-denied attraction. When the reality turns out to be hotter than the fantasy, Eve might end up getting more than she bargained for.

The only author I was familiar with was Lori Foster and I have to admit that's why I wanted to read this anthology but I was happy to give the other two stories a try.
