Book 2 was EVEN BETTER

What can I say….I loved book one and how it started to bring you into what is going on but book 2 was OMG the action and the answers you start to get…..It was soooo good and I can not wait until book 3 comes out. I have been lucky enough to read this one as she was writing it and I can tell you this, if you have not started this series, you might want to.

Turns out being the town’s only necromancer could pose some problems when the dead won’t stay dead.

The new semester of Windhaven Academy is about to start, and already Autumn Blackwood’s life is in jeopardy. Rumors are swirling around the school that Autumn and her boyfriend are raising the revenants, and Autumn worries they might be right.

What if the resurrection she performed last semester wasn’t as successful as she thought? What if she really is the cause of the dead returning to life?

Soon, Autumn and her boyfriend find themselves in the center of a supernatural federal investigation that could land them both in prison—or something far worse. And if Autumn doesn’t find out what’s really behind the soulless scourge quickly enough, everyone she cares about could be next on death’s list.

RJ Blain is a bad ass!!

I have recently started working with RJ Blain. You all know her as a huge PNR author and let me tell you her brain is crazy. I love her to death. She not only is very talented but does it all with many health issues.

Working with her I just do background stuff like market research or getting her organized so I did not need to read her books to do the job. I have started listening to her audio books while I work on 12 hours of market research. (she takes it very seriously) I feel in love with Playing with Fire. I loved it so much that my daughter is now listening to it and she had never been able to make it through one audiobook in her life.

First off the narrator is AMAZING…she does the characters so much justice. Then the story itself cracks me up. You really have no idea what RJ will have them doing next.

Now I am not listening to Huffin’ It. I will let you know how it is when I am done! Go check out her stuff if you have not already you will not be dissapointed!

No Time

So a lot of my reading time is used for ARCs for the authors that I work with. Sometimes, on the rare occasion when all of them are writing, I get to pick the books I read. I have been on a bully kick lately since I have read Rachel Jonas’ upcoming release and Eden O’Neill’s books. I have even had a chance to read the first 6 chapters of Lucinda Darks upcoming release. Let me tell you none of them have disappointed.

So, since I have had a little time with everyone writing, I have been reading the Rejects Paradise series by Sheridan Anne. The first 2 books are amazing and while I am working (slowly) on the 3rd book, I am trying to make it last till the next book comes out. I hate having to wait to find out what happens. I will just try to be patient and but something tells me I might be bugging her to be on her ARC team as well.

If you want to check her series you can get it book 1 here.

Moving in with a billionaire playboy is supposed to be some sort of Cinderella story, right? I’m supposed to be having the time of my life while living the dream. 


When the bank took our home, it didn’t come as a surprise. The bomb was when mom told me we were moving out of Breakers Flats, away from my crew, and to a place that only existed in fairy tales—Bellevue Springs. Home of the insanely beautiful, rich, and famous.

Only, Bellevue Springs is far from a fairy tale. It’s a nightmare full of secrets, horrors, and the ugly reality of the one-percenters, but without this move, mom and I are up sh*t creek without a paddle.

We don’t belong here—not even as the help.

I should have been prepared. I should have done my homework so at least that way I wasn’t blindsided by Charles Carrington’s son; my new housemate.

Colton F*cking Carrington.

He’s the definition of an arrogant, entitled prick and he’s determined to make my life a living hell. Guess what, Colton? Where I’m from, you don’t start a war unless you intend to finish it, and that’s exactly what I plan to do.

You can’t take down a girl who has nothing left to lose.

We may be on your territory, but this is my game.

WARNING: Rejects Paradise is a Young Adult / New Adult Dark High School Bully Romance series. It features dark themes and mature content.

Rachel Jonas changes lanes!!!

Rachel has done an amazing job in Urban Fantasy but now she has decided to write Bully Romance as well. Let me tell you it was worth it. I have read this ARC and I messaged her and told her she was mean for leaving it off the way she did. I still love her and will read everything she writes but let me tell you….I have a book hangover and will continue to have one till book 2 comes out.

Without further ado….here is the official cover reveal for The Golden Boys.

Release Date: October 16, 2020

West Golden—easy to hate, but so hard to resist.

Don’t let that pretty face of his fool you. He isn’t the boy next door, or the kind you trust with your heart. He’s the devil in designer jeans, with all the charm of a bona fide psycho.

Trust me.

He swears I did something to cross him before I even stepped foot inside Cypress Prep, but it’s a lie. No one knows better than me that I’m all out of chances. One more misstep and I can kiss my future goodbye, which means I can’t possibly be guilty of whatever he thinks I’ve done.

West marks me with a target anyway, and as this town’s football star, no one dares to go against him. His money, status, and the loyalty of his equally entitled brothers makes him seem untouchable. Only, I know better than that.

This false god isn’t infallible like he wants the world to believe. Whenever I stare into those devilish green eyes, I see it plain as day. The chink in his armor. His one and only weakness.


The King of Cypress Prep has finally met his match and taking him down just became an inside job.





Colleen Hoover’s Heart Bones

I know this is only a blog for indie authors and to be honest I am not sure if Colleen Hoover is signed or not. Either way I LOVE HER WORK!!! and it is my blog so I will add her if I want. lol

This and every story she has written has made me cry. They are so emotional and you can get every visual you need. You feel for her characters as if you know them personally.

Heart Bones is about a girl that was raised in a trailer park by an addict mom. With a very unfortunate turn of events she ends up living with her dad before she goes off to college. During the summer she falls in love with a guy no one really knows much about but she can see in his eyes that he is just as damaged as he is.

She fights for him like no one else even though he will not talk about his past. He will tell her everything at the end of the summer so nothing can ruin the time they have together. Unfortunately, time has run out and now she has to make a decision to stay and fight for him or go to college. He gives her no choice and after 4 years she is back to bring home the love of her life.

My review will never do her books justice. So just trust me and go read them!! This one is on Kindle Unlimited but you never know when it will not be so read it now!

Raven Dark’s Spider Series

This series is defiantly an interesting one. It is dark, gritty and super crazy hot!!!

This girl was part of a cult growing up and when she finally escapes, she works as at a biker owned strip club as a waitress. She thinks the cult has found her so she steals the tip jar and tries to run, when she literally runs into Spider. He decides to keep her and punish her for stealing from the MC and in the mean time becomes obsessed with her.

She thinks she is doing thing right when she finally realizes that MC life is not what she thinks. In the mean time he is using her for sex and she is finding out that the cult was both right and wrong about the outside world.

If you have triggers….do not read this book. It will have your trigger in it.

Do not get me wrong. It is a hot story and I can not wait to see how he redeems himself after the cliffhanger that was left in book 2.

Carissa Andrews’ Oracle has a new look!

Before we get into this book too much, let me just say that not only is this one amazing author but an amazing person as well. She will help almost anyone with anything and just truly just loves to write. This series will be continued after her upcoming series Windhaven Witches.

With that series she is donating 50% of the proceeds to the American Cancer Society. With that said when you go to get Oracle make sure to grab a copy of Secret Legacy too for just .99.

Now about Diana ( the main character in Oracle)….she is sassy and moody in all the right ways. She may be able to read your mind but she does not know anything about her past. Well until she gets lead down the right path to finding out about herself.

(A Diana Hawthorne Supernatural Mystery, #1)
Publication date: June 21st 2018
Genres: Adult, Mystery, Paranormal, Supernatural

Even the most powerful psychic in the world has her blind spots.

For the past two-thousand and some odd years, Diana Hawthorne has always been able to see the past, present, and future with near perfect accuracy. Her only blind spot has been herself. The first twenty years of her existence is a complete blank and she doesn’t know why.

Then she met Blake Wilson.

Not only is he another blind spot—he’s also a Private Investigator hired to disprove her abilities in order to protect some missing girls they were both tasked with finding. With her psychic gifts on the fritz whenever Blake’s around, everything Diana’s fighting for starts to unravel.

And worst of all, it’s leading her to the one thing she’s always wanted: the key to her past.

Can Diana get over her deficiencies and show Blake how gifted she really is? Or will she let the callings of her ancient past cloud her judgment and derail her mission to save the girls?

Eden O’Neill – Kingpin

I found Eden when she published her first book, They the Pretty Stars. Let me tell you, I see a lot of book covers every day but, for some reason, hers made me stop and look and read about it. I fell in love with this cover. So, me being me, I reached out to her and said: “hey, I am totally not a psycho but I love your cover and want to help out any way I can.”

Now, I am not one that will will say ‘hey, I think you need me in your life’ but, lucky for me, she does and we have been friends ever since so yay me. She is amazing and once I read the book, I knew I had made the right decision. Her series was amazing and now I am reading the spin off book, Kingpin. It has not disappointed either.

These guys are headstrong with money and power. Well kinda. LJ had to work for what he has but he has had the help of his friends to back him up. Now they tend to go about things like a bull and deny there feelings a little too much and trust out siders even more.

Falling in love never was what they were looking for but, one by one, they fell. Unfortunately, I am only half-way done with this book but it is coming out Aug 3 and the paperback is already out, so I wanted you know know that you really need to get it.

If I didn’t have a headache going to bed last night I would have probably stayed up to finish it. All of her books are that way.

Random Thoughts

Right now I am reading several books. I never thought I would be that person because I have always had problems with retention. Even when I was in elementary school and middle school, I had to have the special teachers that would have the books on tape to follow along with.

When I had kids and they got a little older…we did not have t.v. Cable was too expensive and eventually we could not watch the same 50 dvds over again. When they would get bored, I would tell them to read and the teachers always let them bring books home or we would go to the library.

As they got older, they wanted to read books that I was not sure were age appropriate. (Twilight) I decided to put there need to read above my own and made myself read Twilight. I found out that the books they made you read in school were not ones I wanted to read and that they just did not interest me. It was not that I couldn’t comprehend the writing, it’s is that I didn’t want to. The books did not interest me.

Maybe it was that I am older and things just started to click in place. Whatever the reason I love to read now. I am not only reading 1 book for fun but I am alpha reading and beta reading and ARC reading for lots of different authors.

I have found that even if you are in a certain mood, there is a book that will fit it and change you attitude. Books for me are like music can be for others. All it takes is a little fun book to take you out of your funk.

So for all of you out there that think reading in lame and too hard. Keep looking for your book that will change your mind. Need help finding it? Message me and I will help you find it.
