Seventh Grave and No Body Promo Tour -Darynda Jones

Twelve. Twelve of the deadliest beasts ever forged in the fires of hell have escaped onto our plane, and they want nothing more than to rip out the jugular of Charley Davidson and serve her lifeless, mangled body to Satan for dinner. So there’s that. But Charley has more on her plate than a mob of testy hellhounds. For one thing, her father has disappeared, and the more she retraces his last steps, the more she learns he was conducting an investigation of his own, one that has Charley questioning everything she’s ever known about him. Add to that an ex-BFF who is haunting her night and day, a rash of suicides that has authorities baffled, and a drop-dead sexy fiancĂ© who has attracted the attentions of a local celebrity, and Charley is not having the best week of her life.

A tad north of hell, a hop, skip, and a jump past the realm of eternity, is a little place called Earth, and Charley Davidson, grim reaper extraordinaire, is determined to do everything in her power to protect it.

We’re doomed.

Still covered in duct tape, he turned on his side to face me, his flesh straining against the binds. “You would tell me if something were wrong, right?”

“What do you mean? Of course, I would.”

“So, if you knew something could happen to you, you’d let me know.”

Where was he going with this? “Yes. Nothing is going to happen to me. Well, unless the Twelve get ahold of me. Other than that, I should be fine.”

He nodded in thought.

“Reyes, what is it?”

“I think you keep secrets from me.”

“You keep secrets from me,” I said, teasing. “Seems only fair.”

He leaned forward and nibbled on my ear. “We can decide who gets to keep secrets and who doesn’t later. Until then, want to do it?”

“Reyes!” I said, appalled. “You just had your arm nearly ripped off at the shoulder.” That and the fact that a grown man asking me if I wanted to “do it” was hilarious.

“We can still do it.”

I giggled. “No, we can’t.”

“I’m very creative with my mouth.”

“I am well aware of that.”

“You should sit on my face.”

A bubble of laughter escaped again. “I am not sitting on your face. Oh, my god.”

“Just sit on my face. I’ll make all your dreams come true.”

“You really need to practice humility,” I said.

“Humility is overrated.”

WHERE SEA MEETS SKY ~ Never-before-seen excerpt

A new adult novel that perfectly captures the existential angst of your early twenties with raw wit, fresh insight, and true feeling from a critically adored USA TODAY bestselling author.

Joshua Miles has spent his early twenties spinning his wheels. Working dead-end jobs and living at home has left him exhausted and uninspired, with little energy to pursue his passion for graphic art. Until he meets Gemma Henare, a vivacious out-of-towner from New Zealand. What begins as a one-night stand soon becomes a turning point for Josh. He can’t get Gemma out of his head, even after she has left for home, and finds himself throwing caution to the wind for the first time in his life.

It’s not long before Josh is headed to New Zealand with only a backpack, some cash, and Gemma’s name to go on. But when he finally tracks her down, he finds his adventure is only just beginning. Equally infatuated, Gemma leads him on a whirlwind tour across the beautiful country, opening Josh up to life, lust, love, and all the messy heartache in between. Because, when love drags you somewhere, it might never let go—even when you know you have to say goodbye.

Unexpected Eden by Rhenna Morgan

Most people believe Eden no longer exists. Lexi Merrill’s about to learn they’re wrong. A hard-working bartender with a self-sufficient backbone and a wary nature, she knows pickup lines like a second language. So, when Eryx Shantos barges into her world with too-smooth words and a body to back it up, she locks up her libido and vows to keep her distance.

Eryx has other ideas. As king of the Myren race, Eryx is duty-bound to enforce the laws preventing exposure of their existence to humans. Yet The Fates have led him through his dreams to Lexi, a temptation he doesn’t want to resist. The question is, is she Myren, or human - which makes her forbidden fruit?

When Eryx’s nemesis tags Lexi as his next target, Eryx insists on taking her home where he can keep her safe. Lexi had no idea “home” would mean the one-and-only land of creation…or that she’d trigger a prophecy that could doom her newfound race.

On the Naughty List by Lori Foster Carly Phillips , Sugar Jamison Beth Ciotta

Talk about a romance addict perfect stocking stuffer read! I love, love, LOVE when a group of writers combine their talents and give a reader a sample of what they do best. It’s a perfect gift to a long time fan and a great way to get to know an author you’ve never read before. Lucky me - I got to do both.

These are SHORT reads so I am keeping my reviews to a minimum so not to spoil the gift that is On the Naughty List.

Christmas Bonus by Lori Foster was ADORABLE! There’s nothing like a girl gearing up to be assertive at the Christmas party, only to find herself completely taken aback by a twin. He may not have been the original target, but he will most certainly be the last!

Naughty Under the Mistletoe by Carly Phillips is another workplace romance that has been brewing for years, and it’s time for a little Christmas miracle to bring these guys together. This was my favorite of the bunch. Super cute!

Some Kind of Wonderful by Beth Ciotta shows us that fade to black can still be steamy and heartwarming. I will say, I wanted more, but what I got was still wonderful :)

Have Yourself a Curvy Little Christmas by Sugar Jamison, well, the title gives a little bit of the story away doesn’t it? I really liked the final short story and hope to learn more about this author.

All in all, a great combination of short stories perfect for the holiday season ahead. It will get you in the romantic holiday spirit for sure!

4 Stars

*Provided by the publisher: St. Martin's Paperbacks

The most wonderful time of the year is back, bringing with it perennial favorite holiday stories from Lori Foster and Carly Phillips, along with two Christmas stories that delighted readers a year ago. This sexy anthology will make you want to give your heart to Christmas again and again…

Lori Foster has two co-workers plan a Christmas party side-by-side-and discover a love worth celebrating in Christmas Bonus Carly Phillips explores a "mistletoe moment" when a no-nonsense lawyer intent on seducing her boss meets his twin instead--and gives him a scintillating kiss that leaves him begging for more in Naughty Under the Mistletoe.In Sugar Jamison’s Have Yourself a Curvy Little Christmas, former wild child Dina Gregory returns home to New York to find the father of her young son. Instead, she finds his stuffy older brother, Ben. Ben can’t help but admire her tenacity—and her bold beauty. Could it be that Dina has reignited his Christmas spirit? Beth Ciotta brings two friends who, after years apart, together at home for the holidays. They don’t seem to have much in common anymore, but when the two get stranded together during a blizzard, they are forced to reexamine if they are better off as "just friends"?

UNTEACHABLE by Leah Raeder

“Complicated dynamics, forbidden sexual tension, and untamed passion. Easily one of my favorite reads.”
--Gail McHugh, New York Times bestselling author

Keep Me Safe Slow Burn # 1 By: Maya Banks

Unteachable by Leah Raeder

What an incredible read. First, the way Leah Raeder wove her words on the page was a wonderful thing to read. I was taken away to a gritty carnival with such poetic prose. I am going to immerse myself in this woman library of work for sure.

Unteachable is raw, smart adolescence. Coming of age for a girl who for all intense and purposes has had to grow up year before her time. Maise has already seen the bloom off the rose. So when she meets the older, Evan, on the front row seat of a rollercoaster, it’s no surprise he just another guy. Someone to hang with, take the edge off with. Only he acts like she is worth more, is special, and demands a connection. Slipping away from him should be easy. They were a night to let loose. A release. So why can’t she get him out of her mind?

You can see the daddy issues a mile away. Sure she will be attracted to this guy. Why not? Druggie mom and dead beat dad. Student-teacher romance, a tale told time and time again. This is different. I repeat, this is different. This author makes you pay attention. It is just so well written. A beautiful painful read written with an artist’s hand. I feel in love, hurt and raged right along with Maise. Seeing her thirst for love and longing for real connection was so real and all encompassing.

Centered in high school this could easily be considered NA, heck maybe it is, didn’t feel that way to me. It felt like a sweeping novel.

Ever since Jordan Billette’s father, Jeremy, died unexpectedly when she was eight years old, Jordan and her paternal grandmother (‘Grannie’) have shared a special bond by creating a tribute to Jeremy: a scrapbook that documents the important milestone of Jordan’s life from her first report card with letter grades, to her first kiss, to graduating from college.

Upon graduating from college, only one significant milestone remains; her wedding day. When Grannie is diagnosed with aggressive cancer, she makes one dying wish to Jordan. Grannie wants to watch Jordan walk down the aisle. Not engaged? Not even dating? No problem. Grannie has a plan. She signs Jordan up for a dating service—dinner dates twice per week will surely turn up a soul mate!

JT Murphy has been best friends with Jordan’s older brother Jared since they were in diapers. Grannie wisely insists Jordan meet her dates at the restaurant where JT waits tables because she needs protection from unworthy jerks. JT is more than happy to help; Jordan is like a sister to him. So why does her smile light up his evening whenever he sees her and why is he noticing that she has curves in all the right places? As the wedding draws near…JT wonders if it’s his heart that needs protecting…from the pain of potentially losing Jordan forever.

4 sweet little stars****

A short but oh so sweet friends to lovers story with a meddling grannie as a bonus! I do love grannies...
Grannie has a dying wish to see her granddaughter walk down the aisle before she passes... so, her meddling ways leads Jordan into a string of seriously bad dates through a dating service. Some of them were definitely cringe worthy. Except for the male stripper... yep, he had to be worth at least a second date! Just sayin... :)
Grannie puts JT, long term family friend, in charge of supervising these dates to make sure all goes well... but, JT finds that sitting on the outside looking in isn't really where he wants to be.
I did find the whole planning a wedding without a groom a little mind boggling at first... didn't know how I felt about that. But, things come full circle by the end and everything fell into place just like dear 'ole grannie had hoped. Well... sort of... plans changed but I think she was still satisfied with the outcome. She was definitely a strong influence on all those around her... wise and well respected. They all wanted her to have her dying wish.
Endearing characters... heartfelt storyline... with a big dose of sexual tension to make things a little interesting!
This is a book for those who want something short and quick to fill up an afternoon that also has a nice little HEA...

Many thanks to the author for the complimentary copy! 

Kissed by a Demon Spy by Sharon Kay

Available on AMAZON!
Add me on Goodreads!

This novella is a companion piece to the Solsti series and can be read as a stand-alone.
Kidnapped as a teen and forced into a life of sexual slavery, Garnet vowed long ago to do whatever she could to spare others her fate. When karma comes full circle with an offer of freedom for her and her young son, she jumps at the chance.

Masquerading as a village innkeeper, Aden keeps his espionage work secret from the gentle pixies he lives among. Using his skills to prevent a group of vicious demons from attacking the innocent, his world is draped in mist, shadow, and danger.

Steeped in shame, Garnet is loath to share her past with Aden. But Aden senses a sweet, loyal strength in her that no amount of horror can erase. His dangerous work is the opposite of the stability Garnet craves. Yet Aden’s patience and strength make him the hero she never had. When the enemy targets them, Garnet and Aden realize that honesty is the truest form of courage.

5 awesome stars*****

So good... great addition to this already great series! Can be read as a stand alone but if you've been following this series you will recognize the main character, Garnet, who we met in Wicked Waves... so nice to see her get her HEA!
Garnet was Kidnapped at age 15 and held as a slave at Stroehm in the demon realm. She finally has an opportunity to escape from this horrific life and chooses to return to her childhood home with her son Dash. She meets Aden who is residing there as an innkeeper in an effort to mask his undercover job as a demon spy. Their attraction to each other is strong and undeniable.
Garnet's back story was heartbreaking but seeing her embrace freedom and love for the first time in her life was heartwarming. I love a strong female character...
I do think I'm a little in love with Aden... yep... I'm in love with a fictitious demon man... don't judge me! He was so patient, loving and understanding and... well, sexy. :)
I would love to see more of this couple again... they were perfect together. Beautifully written, engaging and stands on it's own... very satisfying read.
This novella is a good place to start if you're wanting a taste of what this series is like... or, if you're interested you can start with book one... Wicked Wind

NEW BOOK ~ Ride Steady (Chaos #3) by Kristen Ashley

Let's all take a moment to bask in the knowledge that THIS is coming from Kristen Ashley! No cover yet, but that write up though! Check out more on Kristen Ashley Goodreads Page

The ride of her life . . .
Once upon a time, Carissa Teodoro believed in happy endings. Money, marriage, motherhood: everything came easy---until she woke up to the ugly truth about her Prince Charming. Now a struggling, single mom and stranded by a flat tire, Carissa's pondering her mistakes when a vaguely familiar knight rides to her rescue on a ton of horsepower.

Climb on and hold tight . . .
In high school, Carson Steele was a bad boy loner who put Carissa on a pedestal where she stayed far beyond his reach. Today, he's the hard-bodied biker known only as Joker, and from the way Carissa's acting, it's clear she's falling fast. While catching her is irresistible, knowing what to do with her is a different story. A good girl like Carissa is the least likely fit with the Chaos Motorcycle Club. Too bad holding back is so damned hard. Now, as Joker's secrets are revealed and an outside threat endangers the club, Joker must decide whether to ride steady with Carissa---or ride away forever .

Klover Review Crew Read~Soulfire (Nightwing #1) by Juliette Cross

Soulfire is my first read by author Juliette Cross. First impression is that she reminds me a bit of an early Nalini Singh. The storyline and the premise are really good. The characters are well defined and you really are immersed in their world right away.

I am in love with the idea of Lucius Nightwing. He can fly me to the moon and back. Lucius is protective of this human Jessen and is trying to stop the pull he feels toward her. His species really has no control when his mate is decided, but the level of racism is at an all time high in this world. This will bring about a host of problems for this coupling. The old world and new world ways always do.

Soulfire is off to a great start and I will be sticking with this series in hopes that we will get a bit more emotionally in-depth in the next book. I think the world building has been done now and I want more meat, so to speak. I am sure Cross will deliver!

3.5 Great start stars
