Release Day Blitz & Blog Tour - Promises Hurt By Elle Brooks 9th

Promises Hurt By Elle Brooks

Published August 2, 2014


I wasn't planning on falling for Ethan Jamison, hell I wasn't planning on our paths ever crossing. He’s the most popular guy at school and a complete player. Me; I’m the perpetual good girl, trying to carry out one last request. But when you make a promise, how far do you go to see it through? 

~ Blair

It’s a running joke that I’m a terrible liar, if only people knew the truth. My whole life has been spent making excuses and deflecting questions. I was pretty good at it until Blair Thomas entered my world. She saw through the mask that everyone is so willing to accept. She makes me want to tell her all my secrets, but can she promise to keep them?

~ Ethan

Book Cover


I look down at my cell and it’s 4:54pm. No sign of Ethan. No text to explain. What a douche. I mean, okay so I needed to be here anyway to collect books, but that’s not the point. He didn't know that. I can’t stand people that make plans and then break them without warning. It takes two seconds to send a text.

I’m packing up my things when Ethan Jamison barges through the library doors. He’s panting like he’s out of breath and his eyes are frantically scanning the almost empty room. Then they land on me. I stand completely frozen, mouth gaping like a total moron. Of freakingcourse it has to be that Ethan. He makes his way over, and the sound of his boots echoing through the otherwise silent room awakens me from my dumbstruck state. Emily’s letter flashes in my mind and I feel instantly embarrassed. Like, somehow he knows about it, which of course, he can’t, but I’m still panicking.  

He stops a few feet short of my table and looks a little unsure. This isn't the cocky Ethan Jamison that struts around school thinking he’s god’s gift. It’s thrown me a little.

“Hey, um…I’m Ethan,” he says, looking down at me. He lays his guitar case down at his feet and then adjusts his backpack on his shoulders. “Are you the tutor, I mean, sorry…are you Blair?”

I never realized how tall he actually is up close and personal. I’ve seen him play at a gig for about two seconds once, but he was on a stage, so of course he’s gonna look taller than everyone else. Emily and I have only stalked him at a distance. His blue eyes are boring into mine and I'm just standing there. Staring. Like an idiot. He shifts his weight and I realize he’s asked me a question. I still haven't replied. Shit.

“Er…yeah, I’m Blair, nice to meet you. I was just about to go, I thought you weren't coming. You’re late.” The last part comes out all pissy like I'm mad at him.

An amused grin starts to form; his mouth pulling up slightly at one side and the boy has dimples—real life honest-to-god dimples.

I shake my head and practically bark out, “I’ve been waiting for you for almost a half hour. If you’re gonna be late when we meet, you could at least give me a heads up?” Oh my god, why the hell am I telling him off?

His smile widens and he’s not even trying to look sorry. He drops his backpack on the table and takes a seat.

“Yeah, I had practice and it ran over. Steve has a no phone rule, so it’s kinda hard to let you know when I don't have my cell.”

Steve is the music professor; he’s got the new age hippy vibe going on and makes all his students call him by his first name. I pull my chair back out and take a seat. “Okay. Well, um, let’s just get started then.”

I look up and his eyes are zeroed in on my chest. What a complete douche, he’s already ogling my boobs. I cough twice and raise my eyebrows in a ‘what the hell, my eyes are up here’ stare, and his cheeks immediately redden.
“Shit, no, I wasn't checking you out! I mean…um, I wasn't staring at your…fuck, well I kinda was but I mean, shit; I was just trying to read what your shirt says.”

Holy crap, this guy’s more awkward than I am.

You know the saying never judge a book by its cover, that saying has never been more true or relate to a book more than this book in so many ways. When I read the blurb I thought it was going to be average. BUT I cant tell you how wrong I was, in so many ways. 

OMG, this book was amazing. As soon as I started reading it I was hooked. This is a book you have to make time for, preferably in a room with a lock. I read it in one go. 

So, this is what I am going to tell you about this book, not to much detail because I want you to discover this story for yourself.  Okay here goes. 

Blair is a bit of a loner and Ethan is part of the in crowd. No it isn't your usual popular boy falls for loner girl. There is more to story, but I REALLY cant tell you. Ok so Blair starts tutoring Ethan in maths  to help him get his grades up and plus she'll get extra credit for it. They then start hanging out and become boyfriend and girlfriend. Sounds simple right? NOT the case. There's a list involved......

Ok as I said I read this in one go. I couldn't put it down. And once I got to the end I was like, SERIOUSLY WTF. I loved this story, it's heartbreaking and sweet, and pulls at all your emotions. I love Blair and Ethan. I cant wait for the next book. 

Elle Brooks, Thank you for an amazing read. It was compelling, stunning, emotional, fantastically written. I REALLY can't wait to read the second book. 

I give this book 5/5 stars and 3/5 for movie moments.

My Review

KT Fisher is one of my favourite author's. I have loved all of her books.

Reading one of her books is like finding that comfy spot in bed or on your favourite chair. She is able to compel you with her style of writing, it pulls you straight in and you don't let go until you are finished.

The First book Heat was gripping and left you wanting more. So I couldn't wait to read Ignite.

The girls have decided to go on tour with the Masse brothers. But it isn't what they expected. Lacey ends up in hospital and Roxie starts drinking heavily. It tears them all apart.

I absolutely loved Ignite. I read it in one go. My favourite is Cole. Ladies we have a new book Boyfriend. don't get me wrong Mason is just as hot, But Cole......

So what did I like, EVERYTHING. The pace and flow are perfect. There's not one bit in the book that didn't fit, or was hard to follow. I never lot interest once. The characters are well thought out and fit together like a jigsaw.

KT Fisher has an exceptional way of writing in that, once you start to read any of her books you know the supplies need to come out, you lose yourself in the book, it plays out in your head like a film. Once you finish reading you cant believe how many hours have past, it feels like you have just started reading it.

I cant wait for the net KT Fisher book. I would definitely recommend you get this book.

I give this book 5/5 stars and 5/5 for movie moments.

18+ with sex scenes M/F/M AND F/F 

Lacey and Roxie have been best friends and live together in an apartment in Los Angeles. Lacey and Roxie may be best friends but over the past few years they have gotten even closer, giving each other comfort and relief when they have no other. 

On Lacey's birthday Roxie decides to take her out to their favourite night club, with their two friends Ria and Paige. It's not long until the girls are drunk and having a good night. Roxie and Lacey dance on one of the mini stages, dancing like they've done many times before. They catch the attention of two men but these aren't just ordinary men, they're rock stars, looking for a good night without their rock star label. 

Cole and Mason are brothers and are both in the rock band, Black Inferno. Cole is the lead singer and Mason the lead guitarist. His little brother Mason has been begging for a regular night out. Mason has never been a fan of the groupies and after parties and Cole finally takes pity on his brother and agrees to his night out. Cole realizes that he too is fed up with the after party life, the drugs and easy women are boring. While the band is in L.A they find a night club where they are sure none of their fans go and hope they can have a good night without being recognized. 

It's in this night club where all four meet. Cole spots the gorgeous brunette dancing on the stage and immediately wants her. Lacey can't take her eyes from the dark and dangerous looking stranger. They all go back to the girls apartment, Cole and Mason discover just how close the best friends can be which leads to an interesting night. Lacey and Roxie have no idea that the guys are from the famous rock band, Black Inferno. To them they are just two gorgeous and tattooed men they met in the club.

Cole and Lacey find themselves drawn to each other, Lacey is scared at how fast she is falling for this new man in her life. Cole keeps his rock star profile from Lacey, he feels bad for lying but he's scared that if he tells her it could ruin what they seem to have. The truth will always come out but can Lacey handle the truth and can she forgive Cole when she finds out who Cole really is? Does her love for him make her look over his lies?

My Review

Lacey and Roxie are in a club on a girls night out for Lacey's Birthday. But what you have to understand is that as much as they both are into men, they sometimes relieve that itch with each other. On this particular night they are approached by two of the hottest men ever.

After a few drinks they head back to the girls apartment for a night of fun!!! For Cole this isn't just one night But he is holding back on what he does for a living.

This book is seriously hot. I loved it. Girls we have Two new book boyfriends in the form of The Masse brothers. MY favourite being Cole.


Everything about this book compels you once you start reading it you wont stop until the end. Then make sure you have Ignite to read straight after.

I give this book 5/5 stars and 5/5 for movie moments.

Review - Precarious By Bella Jewel

Title: Precarious: Jokers' Wrath MC (Book One)
Author: Bella Jewel
Publication Date: August 4, 2014


In darkness, we find danger. In danger, I find Beau.

Ash is a prison guard, she's tough, she's strong and she never backs away from a fight. She takes her job seriously, she takes her training seriously, and everything in her life goes as planned.

Until the day he is brought into the prison.

She'll never forget meeting Beau 'Krypt' Dawson for the first time. She'll never forget his haunted eyes and his numb expression. He's a member of the Jokers Wrath MC and it is said he killed an innocent family in the middle of a cafe, in cold blood.

Deranged. Crazy. Psychotic.
All those words describe the infamous Krypt, but Ash suspects there's far more to the quiet man than meets the eye. Secrets are being hidden by the club, information is being kept under wraps. Krypt is silent for a reason.

Ash is desperate to know that reason.

Continually fighting, Krypt is transferred to a high security prison. Ash is in charge. She's always prepared, always alert. Not even her skills will stop the club from ambushing them and taking back Krypt. Only Ash ends up right in the middle of it.
They take her, too.

Now she's stuck with a Motorcycle Club who are tougher than any prisoner she's ever laid eyes on. And they won't let her go. She's too much of a risk. Until the situation can be sorted, they send her and Krypt into the mountains together....alone.
An epic, dangerous love will be built on the foundations of darkness.  

My Review

Ok girls, here's the review I promised you for Precarious by Bella Jewel. 

You know that feeling when you've been on holiday and you get home, your like "sigh- home sweet home" Well reading A Bella Jewel book is like that. You know your in for a fantastic read. You have to plan reading it like a military operation. 
  1. Plan the time your going to read it carefully. NO INTERRUPTIONS
  2. Plan where your going to read it. Some where with a lock
  3. You will be in there a while. Supplies are needed. 
Ash works in a prison. She loves her job, she's good at it. She likes her colleagues. She's respected. 

Beau is in a MC and Girls he's as hot as they come. 
Ash is asked to transport Beau to a different Prison. Something she doesn't do. One the way they are ambushed. Along the way Ash learns some truths she finds hard to believe. 

Bella has done it again. Another Fantastic book. As I said reading a Bella Jewel book is like coming home. Or getting on the back of a bike, you know your in for a ride so you better hold on. 

I LOVED this book. Everything was perfect. I loved the characters, especially Beau, did I mention he's hot.  I loved the setting and plot of the book. Also girls, this book has some PRETTY hot scenes. Everything you want and expect from a Bella Jewel book is in Precarious. 

Bella, you have out done yourself again. This book is exceptionally written. The plot and characters are well thought out. The style that Bella writes in as your reading it plays out in your head vividly like a movie. In fact if there is an author whose books I would like to see on TV or film it would be Bella. 

I give this book 5/5 stars and 5/5 for movie moments.

Cover Reveal - Slade By Adriane Leigh

I am so excited about this cover reveal. I have read the first two books in The Wild Series and they were amazing. I cant wait for this one.

Author: Adriane Leigh
Expected Publication Date: September 2014
Genre: Erotic Contemporary Romance
Cover Designer: Cover It! Designs
Cover Model: Marcel Snyman
Behind every beautiful thing, there is some kind of pain...

Always overlooked. Always just there. That's what Dillon was to me.

Until one night.

In one night she flipped my world on its axis and there's no going back. But she has secrets, and secrets fester like an open wound. They color the past and forecast the future, but I'm determined to open her up; free her from her memories so she can live in the light and have the life she deserves.

It's just too bad that she wants nothing to do with me. But I'm nothing if not persistent and I'm not a man that gives up without a fight. I've had a taste and there's no walking away.
I just have to convince her that I'm not what she fears, I'm what she wants.

Slade, like Wild and Ridge, is a standalone.
Reading Wild and Ridge first will provide some back story, but is not required to read Slade.

Release Blitz Wrapped in Shadows By Lisa Eugene

One night of shadows. One night of bliss. One night of evil.

Katherine Regina Vandercamp has everything. Wealth. Beauty. Social standing. She’s the heiress to the Vandercamp fortune and engaged to the man of her dreams. One night it all shatters…

Finding her fiancé with another woman, she is distraught and makes a reckless decision to go with a friend to a sex club. Needing total anonymity, she has sex with a stranger in a room of total darkness, a sensuous cocoon of silky shadows. She has no idea who this man is or what he looks like. But it is in the shadows she finds solace. In the shadows she finds bliss.

She can’t forget this stranger’s touch, his taste, his scent. He infiltrates her dreams and holds her thoughts and body captive. But had she made a false assumption about her fiancé? Had he really been unfaithful? She regrets her hasty actions and is tormented by guilt. She is determined to marry the man she loves and forget her stranger.
Sinister events unfolded at the sex club. There was a gruesome murder and her stranger has been charged with the crime. Katie knows he’s innocent because she was with him at the time of the murder. She is shocked to find that he’s not a stranger after all. Will she reveal her horrible secret? Will she besmirch the Vandercamp name? Will she risk losing the man who has her heart to save the man who’s touched her soul?

Will coming forward put her in danger? Her life is in turmoil. All because of that one night.

A night that changed everything… 


My Review 

I really liked this book. I was intrigued from the blurb and it didn't disappoint. 

Katherine has everything, money, a job she enjoys, a fiancé she loves until everything she knows changes. And she has some important decisions to make. 

I felt the pace and flow was right on this. The characters were well thought out. I really didn't like Katherine's mother or her fiancé either. I did wish at times she would stick up to her mother.  

Katherine makes me want to shake her at times and don't get me started on her boyfriend. He's a douche. She is controlled by her mum and in a way her boyfriend too. Does she stand up for her self you will have to read it. 

I found it easy to read and only waned from reading when I wanted to shake Katherine. Its a really good read and i would recommend it. 

I give this 4/5 stars.

Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.

She can't believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all.

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.

They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind. 

War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.



I still stared at Daemon, completely aware that everyone else except him was watching me. Closely. But why wouldn’t he look at me? A razor-sharp panic clawed at my insides. No. Thiscouldn’t be happening. No way.My body was moving before I even knew what I was doing.

From the corner of my eye, I saw Dee shake her head and one of the Luxen males step forward, but I was propelled by an inherent need to prove that my worst fears were not coming true.

After all, he’d healed me, but then I thought of what Dee had said, of how Dee had behaved with me. What if Daemon was like her? Turned into something so foreign and cold? He would’ve healed me just to make sure he was okay. 

I still didn’t stop.
 Please, I thought over and over again. Please. Please. Please. On shaky legs, I crossed the long room, and even thoughDaemon hadn’t seemed to even acknowledge my existence, I walked right up to him, my hands trembling as I placed them on his chest.

 “Daemon?” I whispered, voice thick. 

 His head whipped around, and he was suddenly staring down at me. Our gazes collided once more, and for a second I saw something so raw, so painful in those beautiful eyes. And then his large hands wrapped around my upper arms. The contact seared through the shirt I wore, branding my skin, and I thought—I expected—that he would pull me against him, that he would embrace me, and even though nothing would be all right, it would be better.

Daemon’s hands spasmed around my arms, and I sucked in an unsteady breath.

His eyes flashed an intense green as he physically lifted me away from him, setting me back down a good foot back.

I stared at him, something deep in my chest cracking. “Daemon?”

He said nothing as he let go, one finger at a time, it seemed, and his hands slid off my arms. He stepped back, returning his attention to the man behind the desk.

 “So . . . awkward,” murmured the redhead, smirking.

I was rooted to the spot in which I stood, the sting of rejection burning through my skin, shredding my insides like I was nothing more than papier-mâché.

 “I think someone was expecting more of a reunion,” the Luxen male behind the desk said, his voice ringing with amusement. “What do you think, Daemon?” 

One shoulder rose in a negligent shrug. “I don’t think anything.”

My mouth opened, but there were no words. His voice, his tone, wasn’t like his sister’s, but like it had been when we first met. He used to speak to me with barely leashed annoyance, where a thin veil of tolerance dripped from every word.The rift in my chest deepened.
For the hundredth time since the Luxen arrived, SergeantDasher’s warning came back to me. What side would Daemon and his family stand on? A shudder worked its way down my spine. I wrapped my arms around myself, unable to truly process what had just happened.

 “And you?” the man asked. When no one answered, he tried again. “Katy?”

 I was forced to look at him, and I wanted to shrink back from his stare. “What?”

I was beyond caring that my voice broke on that one word. The man smiled as he walked around the desk. My gaze flickered over to Daemon as he shifted, drawing the attention of the beautiful redhead. “Were you expecting a more personal greeting?” he asked. “Perhaps something more intimate?”

I had no idea how to answer. I felt like I’d fallen into the rabbit hole, and warnings were firing off left and right. Something primal inside me recognized that I was surrounded by predators.

INVITE YOUR FRIENDS! The more the merrier. 
Surrounded Release Party 6th August

Everything was falling into place. Even amongst all the chaos of Washington D.C., Brooklyn and Logan found each other.
Brooklyn never expected Logan...and as it always seems to happen with her...things fell apart. She has been through this before...was she strong enough to do it again?
On the outside, Logan was the epitome of wealth and confidence. Many knew his name but few knew his secrets. He never expected Brooklyn...but now she's walked away. He knew what they shared mattered to her...and she...she mattered to him more.

My Review 

Surrounded for me was better than the first. But I still struggled with it a bit. I lost interest a bit. 

This one is more about Logan and Brooklyn. And the fact that Brooklyn left logan, we get to see if they sort things out or stay separated. I like logan not just because he's a hotty, but i do think he's good for Brooklyn. Brooklyn does get on my nerves a bit, sometimes I feel like shaking her.

The pace for me was a little slow. Again This didn't grab me the way some books do. 

I give this book 3.5/5 stars.

Unsettled (book #1) is on Sale

After a horrific breakup with her long-time boyfriend, Brooklyn Caldwell is completely disenchanted with the notion of mingling with the opposite sex. Damon Williams had been everything she thought she wanted…until he wasn’t.

In an attempt to escape her heartbreaking past, Brooklyn seeks refuge in bustling Washington DC where she folds into the fast paced society unnoticed…until she meets a young entrepreneur, Logan Colton.

Brooklyn is surprised to find that while she has been successful in keeping the opposite sex at bay, somehow she is defenceless against Logan’s confidence and charm—and it doesn’t hurt that he is absurdly beautiful. While thrilled with Logan’s candour, Brooklyn hesitates, as she can’t seem to move past the heartache that she suffered at the hands of Damon. 

 As much as Logan didn’t plan on pursuing her, he is drawn to Brooklyn’s muted beauty and her witty persona. For all his success, Logan is ensnared in the coveted world of unequivocal wealth and power, but behind closed doors is taunted by demons and an undeniable need to atone for a monumental mistake.

As the two embark on a tumultuous obstacle course saturated with unknown twists and turns, Brooklyn is left to question whether she can endure the journey ahead.

My Review

I was looking forward to reading this from the blurb. 

I struggled with it. It didn't grab my attention the way I thought it would. 

However, The outline of the story was good, the characters were well thought out. The best thing about this book was Logan, he's a hotty. 

If your looking for an ok read this is the one for you. 

I give this 3.5 stars
