BLURB
Any man she love will die—a curse courtesy of her father and the reason for her tragic past. She's determined not to suffer like that ever again.

Then the heart-stopping-wipe-the-drool-from-your-mouth-sexy Godric Devereaux shows up. He's a disowned vampire-djinn hybrid on a mission to save his niece and rejoin his family—if only he can prove he isn't the monster everyone believes him to be.

Calliope sees right through the bad-boy persona and into the heart of the dark creature who only wants to belong. He's determined to claim Calliope as his own. All she wants to do is protect him from her curse.

But war between supernatural forces brings with it a battle of trust and betrayal, and Calliope and Godric must discover if true love can break the spell—or if the curse will keep them apart forever.

Warmth. Heat. Power.

It spread through my body with each pull of my fangs. I growled and drank hard, ripping through flesh, punishing him before draining the life from his flailing, worthless form.

My gaze drifted to the stained concrete beneath my boots again, and fresh anger surged from the sight of the small girl on the ground at my feet. She couldn't have been more than ten. She had been why I chose my victim. The man in my grasp deserved to feel the life drain from him. And I took every last drop. I hadn't been fast enough to save her, but I could exact vengeance for her life. No one else would do right by her.

I finally tore out his throat, ending it, and tossed him to the ground several yards from the small child's body. Then I wiped some of the blood from my face with the back of my hand. Drinking blood was as normal to me as eating had been three thousand years ago. I still ate, but blood was what I really craved. Each feeding was a rush of power and a reminder of what had been stolen—what my choices had cost.

I glanced around the dark alley. Apartments loomed up five stories on either side. Not a light could be seen from a single window. The sounds of the city echoed around me—yells, vehicles, sirens, flesh slapping flesh. I turned and peered through the darkness. A pair of humans fucked against the wall behind a dumpster a hundred feet away, completely oblivious to the two murders that'd just been committed.

Filth penetrated every brick and crack of concrete. The City of Angels was truly the armpit of the West Coast Republic. And the perfect place for me—a blood sucking creature of the night—to hunt monsters without repercussions.

I always ate monsters.

People the humans wouldn't miss.

People the humans would be grateful I devoured.

RELEASE BLITZ and REVIEW: More Than Need You By Shayla Black

Add To GoodReads Here
I’m Griffin Reed—cutthroat entrepreneur and competitive bastard. Trust is a four-letter word and everyone is disposable…except Britta Stone. Three years ago, she was my everything before I stupidly threw her away. I thought I’d paid for my sin in misery—until I learned we have a son. Finding out she’s engaged to a bore who’s rushing her to the altar pisses me off even more. I intend to win her back and raise our boy. I’ll have to get ruthless, of course. Luckily, that’s one of my most singular talents. Sixty days. That’s what I’m asking the gritty, independent single mother to give me—twenty-four/seven. Under my roof. And if I have my way, in my bed. Britta says she wants nothing to do with me. But her body language and passionate kisses make her a liar. Now all I have to do is coax her into surrendering to the old magic between us. Once I have her right where I want her, I’ll do whatever it takes to prove I more than need her. This book is the second in the More Than Words series. The books are companions, not serials, meaning that backstory, secondary characters, and other elements will be easier to relate to if you read the installments in order, but the main romance of each book is a stand-alone. This book contains lines that may make you laugh, events that may make you cry, and scenes that will probably have you squirming in your seat. Don’t worry about cliffhangers. HEA guaranteed! (Does not contain elements of BDSM or romantic suspense.)



This is a unique set of books that follows each other and leads into another book to keep u wanting more and more. I just love that.
Mr. Griffen Reed is a very determined man after he finds out that he has a son by his ex who is planning on marrying another man. He has guilt so bad he cant imagine losing her and his son forever after he had screwed up so horribly. But he has to try to salvage the most precious things to him. Right?
Amazingly well written and follows the book before it where you learn about Griffen and his brother.
Lovely author this one is and I cannot wait to read more. She always has me looking for more of her books. Such a big fan of hers.

RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW: Secrets Of Stone; No Broken Bond By Angel Payne & Victoria Blue


Can we keep our bond intact? Do we have the courage to find out?
Rock.
It’s just the beginning of what Fletcher Ford and Drake Newland have done to my world—and my soul—since igniting my desires, answering my dreams and filling every inch of my heart. I am rocked. Changed. Freed. A woman in love…
With two incredible men.
Paper.
Not that the adjustment has been easy, and not just for my orthodox family. Falling for one dazzling, commanding billionaire is complicated enough. Wading through dysfunctions, judgments and emotional baggage from all sides, we’re searching for the perfect balance of our love, and nearly find it, when disaster slams again—threatening to permanently cripple us this time.
Scissors?

With our bond in shreds and our spirits in tatters, can we find the glue to keep our bond intact, our love whole? Are we broken…or just bent? Do we have the courage to find out?

Oh I couldnt put this down. I read the first book and just loved it

Im just so in love with the story of these three characters. They have this crazy love and dynamic with eachother and how they can read eachother and its absolutely amazing because they are so different. Especially with their family backrounds and what they have had to deal with personally.

I am so excited to see the authors are doing another book in this series. I just absolutely cannot wait for it.

FLetcher was my favorite character in the first book. He was funny cute sarcastic and the total opposite of the quiet Drake. But boy oh boy in this book he sure made me cry and want to slap the stupid right out of him.

Tahlia oh what a sweet girl. She puts everything of herself into this relationship in this book and finally im happy to see her just say shes done at the end and give the guys a shock. Because she is doing something for herself and not for them. Sort of lol. 

Drake oh Drake what an inigma of himself. He is such a lil savior boy haha. Love his character but I think like Fletcher that I want to smack the savior complex out of him sometimes haha.

If you love the other books by this author you will asolutely adore this one. ITs full of more adventure and more emotions than you can hold onto.

You absolutely will not be putting this down until you have read the entire book. There will be tears it is that heartwrenching.

REVIEW:69 Bottles- The Box Set Books 1-3 (Claiming Addison, Craving Talon and Redeeming Kyle) By Zoey Derrick




For Addison Beltrand, PR rep for Bold International, Inc. climbing the corporate ladder is all that matters in life. Her hard work is finally rewarded with the promotion she’s worked her ass off to earn—but the gig comes at a price. She leaves in two days for a twelve-week tour with America’s hottest alternative rock band, 69 Bottles.

Talon Carver, lead singer of 69 Bottles, has no problem with women--as long as they’re gone by morning. When Addison shakes up his world, it’s a huge problem—compounded by the fact that Addison’s not the only one he wants.

Kyle Black, manager of 69 Bottles, has a secret. He and Addison are closer than she thinks, but telling her could keep her away. When Talon sets his sights on Addison, Kyle uses his secret to push her into Talon’s arms, only to discover she isn’t the only one he needs.

Two men. One dilemma.

Talon is wild, reckless and loves control.

Kyle is calm, collected and loves passion.

The perfect balance…or Addison’s ultimate undoing?

Talon and Kyle push their boundaries and Addison’s, but can they throw their reservations to the wind and claim her together?

Two men. One woman. A rock band. A tour bus. One Wild Ride…

****Content Warning****
Sexy, naked, bisexual rock stars…and a lot more…
This book contains, but is not limited to the following sexual content – reader discretion is advised - hot sex between two men and one woman. M/M/F, M/F/M, M/F, F/M and M/M sexual content. There are no boundaries when these three crash together, as long as you’re over 18 years of age.
 

Rock hard once again with Zoey Derrick’s sizzling hot rock & roll series!

The story picks up as 69 Bottles continues their tour, riding a surge of success thanks to an impromptu duet between Talon and Addison.

It’s a crazy turn of life for Addison Beltrand, who’s always lived to work and worked to live. Now, everything is shifted upside down—and that’s not a bad thing. Stepping on the 69 Bottles tour bus has banished the heartache of her past, and feels like a rocking new beginning.

Talon Carver and Kyle Black couldn’t agree more. The band’s lead singer and manager are falling hard for the beautiful rock chick, and will do anything to keep her in their bed—and between their bodies—forever.

The trio’s blissful bubble is popped by a danger nobody has anticipated. The band’s security team, always watchful for fan attacks on the members, isn’t prepared for what happens to Addison during this leg of the tour. Will Kyle and Talon be able to help save Addison? Or will her fear force her to pack her bags and return to LA?

Everything hinges on her decision…

Two men. One woman. A rock band. A tour bus. One Wild Ride…

For Talon Carver, the commanding and charismatic lead singer of the rock band 69 Bottles, life has never been better—or worse. His heart’s at a full 11 for Addison Beltrand, his feisty PR rep. But admitting it was a much different tune. The dilemma’s even more complicated when adding his other lover to the mix: Kyle Black, the band’s handsome, sweet and sexy manager.

Why ruin a good thing, right? Things are pretty damn perfect for the trio—in and out of bed. But just when they find their best rhythm with each other, a rocky night in Minneapolis forces all three to reexamine their feelings—and take their relationship to new levels.

But can love be enough? 

The band’s soaring popularity, along with the pressures of maintaining an unconventional relationship on a high-profile rock tour, start to take their toll. When Addison starts to fall apart, Talon and Kyle must come to terms with how important she is to them both. 

Can Addison find the strength to be their glue once more? 

What happens when the world goes on…but yours suddenly stops?

When everything looks like it’s going to fall apart? Is love enough to bring Talon, Kyle, and Addison back to each other’s arms…and with it, the magic that true redemption can bring?

****Content Warning****

These books are what got me addicted to this author. She is absolutely amazing creating a story line that hooks you into it no matter if you want it to or not.

They deserved a separate review for each book because they are all so different and concentrated on each specific character and its just amazing.




Addison, Talon and Kyle. All three sexy & alluring, This book was amazing i read it in a day. I got so addicted to it. It is definitely a very different story, I haven't come across any story like this before but I loved it. Its forbidden but sexy. 
At first it starts off slow cause you are meeting all the characters and getting back stories etc. Then the sexy excursions start happening. I just could not put it down. The story line flows so beautifully through this book. You can easily see how stuff would happen in your mind. How the characters would look in your mind. Its a very vivid very well read story love it
The character i flow towards more is Kyle hes not the rough gruff guy that Talon is. Kyle is the one i keep rooting for Addison to get with even though i doubt that is how it'll play out
5 stars all the way.



I was just as enamered with this this book as I was with the first one.All the characters start falling for eachother and its so hard to choose what guy you would be with if you would have to choose between them. Addison starts to beome famous after singing with 69 Bottles and her fame really starts to kick off. An attack and a stalker ensue in this second book all centered around Addison. The world of crazy Rock Stardom takes over and engulfes her in it. She struggles and embraces it .
Talon loses his grip and luckily Kyle brings him back before they both lose Addison forever.
Absolutely love this amazing story and I cannot wait for the third installment of this series Redeeming Kyle.
5 Stars all the way on this book. Zoey is one of the most amazing writers I have across this far.
 

This was an amazing end to this series. Addison being pregnant and how hard and rough it is on all three of them. Especially Kyle. He is so strong and is there for Addison and it finally gets to him and he breaks down and just loses it. He leaves, (I cried at this point) when he leaves Addison is miserable. I could so see myself doing exactly what she does. Kyle is the guy I absolutely love. He is a beautifully amazing character. So I loved that this book was so centered around him.
I cant wait to see more from Zoey, she is an amazing writer.
5 stars

Oh what an amazing novel. I kinda jumped into the middle not having read previous books that helped with getting the backstory on all of these characters, but boy oh boy I loved this book.

It is full of adventure and mystery that unfolds as you read it. Its full of demons, vampire's, wolves, witches and some various mystical creatures that nobody really knows what they are.

Jake what a strong powerful wolf that struggles with his dominant Alpha side struggling not to challenge his alpha in his home of New Orleans when he meets Kai a strange different creature that helps him grown into the alpha hes meant to be.And oh my gosh his character is full of yummyness.

Oh and Kai, she has hidden for centuries afraid of everything supernatural. She comes out of hiding and meets Jake and they go on this amazing adventure to save her sister and a adventure in finding each-other and love along the way.

This author is an absolutely amazing writer. She definitely knows how to pull you into a plot and create a story that anyone will love.

A must read for anyone into supernatural erotica.
