Identity Crisis

By Rochelle Paige

 

 

Book Synopsisfinal butterfly right 

A reclusive author…Delia Sinclair is desperate to hit a looming deadline. With only two weeks to go before her manuscript is due, she heads to a remote cabin in the Smoky Mountains with no internet or cell service.  An ex-military security specialist…Blaine West is halfway around the world when he gets a frantic message from his childhood sweetheart. She needs to lay low for awhile so he puts her in touch with someone who can help her until he can get back to town.  A dead body…When Blaine arrives at the hotel where they were supposed to meet, he learns the body of a local author was discovered that morning but there’s no sign of his old flame. And a case of mistaken identity… Delia returns home completely unaware that the police believe she’s been murdered. With Delia alive and his ex still missing, Blaine has the skills and connections to find out exactly what happened and keep Delia safe. Lead to a passion that burns out of control.

 

 

FInal Butterfly LeftMy Reviewfinal butterfly right

This was a light and fluffy mystery book.  Delia is an author whose fan decided to check into a hotel under her name and ended up missing which leads to several people hunting her down.  Blaine was the last person the missing girl called and he is off to find out what happened to his friend.  Little does he know that will send him down the crazy road of love and flying bullets.

 

It was a cute light and fluffy book. More romance than mystery; however the characters were great as Rochelle always writes amazing alphas. But I would have preferred more action. I like my “who am I running from” to keep me guessing and keep me questioning myself.  So if your looking for a light and fun read without all the high anxiety producing angst this would be for you. It is warm, fuzzy and sweet.  The characters were open and did not play any games which is always a must for me to get through the book.  I did like the author spin to this though.  Normally, I’m not a fan of authors writing about authors, but this book did not make that an overwhelming theme of the book.  It was nicely played by adding the strengths of authors:  research!!!  I love when authors do great research and Delia knew how to do just that!

 

T’he secondary characters were were in a league all their own though I would love to read a book about each of the brothers.  The billionaire  and the bad boy military boy.   YUM…Rochelle certainly knows how to write my kind of men.

 

Rating 3.5 Stars

RECOMMENDATIONS:

 

 

More Than Friends By Aria Grace
I loved how this was broken up into two short stories. The first one explores the beginning of the friend’s to lover’s relationship between Ryan and Zachary. The second story shows the two of them seven months later. They are committed to each other but a business/pleasure trip to Portland changes everything after they run into Zach’s ex, Steve. In the end, love always prevails … Nice job by Aria Grace. I’d definitely read more of her work ~ MM Recommended by Lisa

 

 

 

Thrash (Bayonet Scars Series Book 2) By JC Emery
This is the second book of the Bayonet series about the Forsaken MC….I loved Ride, the first one…..but, I REALLY loved this one!!! This story gives some more insight into the start of Cub and Ryan’s relationship as well (from Ride)…I love the loyalty and brotherhood that the guys have with one another…for those of you who have read Ride, you get to see what happens to Cub, whom Forsaken is protecting, through Dukes eye’s….but this story is really about Nic and Duke….Nic has always been considered a Lost Girl, not an Old Lady….she has her hands full raising her teenage brother on her own…her dad, who is Forsaken as well, is in prison and her mom left her and her brother, Jeremy….life is hard for her….I really liked Nic because she wasn’t a whiny, bratty chick…actually she was pretty damn tough!! Duke always had a thing for her and never did too much about it… I guess, better late than never. MC – Recommended by Lisa

 

 

 

Lick (Stage Dive Series Book 1) By Kylie Scott
This story is one of those “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” situations! Except … when you hook up with the guitarist of one of the hottest rock bands around! Evelyn and her best friend go to Vegas to celebrate Evelyn’s 21st bday. What happens when you get black out drunk? You wake up not exactly the same person you were the night before! This story just kept getting better and better as the chapters moved along! Light, fun and heartwarming! Recommended by Lisa

A Better Man, A Hunted Man & A Restored Man By Jaime Reese
All three books in The Men of the Halfway House Series are about second chances. We shouldn’t judge someone by their past and who you think they might be. Sometimes committing the crime itself is worth the consequences. Recommended by Keri by TPAM -Goodreads.

 

 

 

Beat By Vi Keeland
This is a rock and roll love story. Lucky was  living  her life with her teenage crush, Dylan.  Along the way, Lucky meets Flynn,  the lead singer of his own band.  After taking on a gig of being a replacement guitarist and vocalist, Lucky and Flynn realize  that their souls were meant for each other. Recommended by Keri TPAM -Goodreads.

About Me

I absolutely adore reading – always have and always will. My friends growing up used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at
the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.

I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream
as long as you are willing to work for it.

When I told my mom that my new year’s resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me “About time!”

Clipped Wings

By: Helena Hunting

 

 

Book Synopsis final butterfly right

Their body art is hot. Their chemistry is even hotter.  From her dark hair sweeping below her waist to her soft, sexy curves, Tenley Page intrigues tattoo artist Hayden Stryker in a way no one else ever has…especially when she asks him to ink a gorgeous, intricate design on her back. Yet for all her beauty, there is something darkly tragic and damaged about Tenley that Hayden is everything.  Covered in ink and steel, Hayden is everything Tenley has never dared to want, awakening a desire to explore more than the art adorning his stunning body. Trapped by a past that leaves her screaming from nightmares, Tenley sees Hayden as the perfect escape. Although he has secrets too, if they both keep themselves guarded perhaps their intense physical connection will remain only that.  But nothing, not even passion, can keep them safe from their pasts…

 

 

FInal Butterfly LeftMy Reviewfinal butterfly right

WOW!!  This book went into my all time favorites.  It was filled with enough drama and angst that I couldn’t put the book down and I couldn’t wait to get to the next book.  The loss that Tenley and Hayden experienced is unimaginable to me and the author did an amazing job at putting you in the character’s shoes.

 

The author also wrote great characters.  I didn’t feel as though they were whiny or crazy.  They seemed to be normal people dealing with horrible life experiences.  It is a book about overcoming the unimaginable.  Trey and the COP also brought enough drama to heighten the trauma that Tenley and Hayden experienced which brought about fears and insecurities.

 

Great book!  I can’t wait to read the next book.

In The Distance By Nikka Michaels
Tyler Mitchel’s parents kicked him out of the house when they caught him
kissing another boy. After living on the streets for a while, he is taken
in by Jamie and Ethan and treated as “little brother” . Tyler works as a
Sous Chef at Jamie’s and Ethan’s restaurant and he also goes to Culinary
School. He is happy, but very lonely. Jamie’s best friend, Trevor Pratt,
shows up at the restaurant and takes an interest in Tyler. But Trevor is
a manwhore, and 10 years older than Tyler, is warned to stay away from
Tyler. How can a manwhore and a shy, lonely younger man make things work?
I really enjoyed this sweet story that makes you think of how much you
would change and give up to be with the one you love.  MM  Recommended by Diana from TPAM-Goodreads

*This is book 3 in the In The Kitchen Series. Can be read as a stand alone.

 

 

 

Never Let You Go By Katy Regnery
“I jump, you jump”… This story is devastating. It’s heartbreaking, frightening,
disturbing… It takes you to places you just don’t want to think about people being
in. But it is also insightful, hopeful, redeeming, triumphant, and beautiful. It is
the ultimate second chance romance; and best of all, the story is complete. I
absolutely loved reading Griselda and Holden’s story. I highly recommend this book,
but be warned, have the tissues handy. Recommended by Stacie from TPAM-Goodreads

 

 

 

All of Me By Gina Sorelle
All of Me is a sweet story of Nathan and Stella, both trying overcome their pasts. Nathan was so horribly abused as a child, plus several tours in Iraq, he doesn’t know how to have a relationship with another person, let alone a girlfriend. He lives his sterile life as a police officer trying to hold it together. He meets Stella who has problems of her own. I loved Stella and her family. She was brave, gutsy and didn’t take any crap. Although, she did cry all the time . I think her eyes welled up at least 10 times.I did enjoy this story with lots of ups and downs. The fear they both had to overcome and fight for each other. It was a really good read and I highly recommend. Recommended by Diana from TPAM-Goodreads

 

 

 

Duty & Devotion By Tere Michaels
In the continuing story of Ethan and Mike, things are going just fine. Or are they. Now that Mike is living with Ethan and taking care of the children, Evan is having trouble. He doesn’t like labels and is having a hard time with being labeled as “gay” after all, he was married for almost 20 years. Mike is getting annoyed and doesn’t understand what Evan’s problem is. It isn’t until Evan and Mike’s family life is threatened that he understands what he is fighting for.
I absolutely adore this couple. Mike is straight forward, ex-cop that doesn’t take crap from anybody. Seeing him taking care of the kids is adorable and made me smirk. I wanted to hit Evan upside his head a few times to realize what he was doing. This is a great series and you do have to at least read the first book in the series, Faith and Fidelity, to understand the characters. If you enjoy m/m serials, this is a must read.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

 

 

The Law of Moses By Amy Harmon
This book was a 5+ star read for me. It was tragic and heartbreaking and strange,
but oh so beautiful. It has a paranormal element, but is not PNR; more like New
Adult. If you are in the mood for an emotional read, this could be the book for you.
Happy reading! Recommended by Stacie from TPAM-Goodreads
 

Dragon Actually By G.A. Aiken
I’m actually currently reading this book and I can not rave enough about it. It is a
combination of PNR, Historical, and Fantasy Romance. It is actually two books in
one. The heroines in these two boos are kick butt! And the banter between the h and
H is hilarious. I’m sold and will be reading the remainder of the series very soon.
I already downloaded book 2. Even though it is really the 3rd story in the series.
Happy reading! Recommended by Stacie from TPAM-Goodreads

 
Abuse By Nikki Sex
This is an intense, dark read about two people and their therapist trying to heal both of them with each other. Grant Wilkinson, an ex-Army Ranger, is trying to overcome not only being horrifically disfigured from the war, but trying to forget his sexual abuse of his father, who was also murdered. Grant’s story is heartbreaking and I absolutely adore the therapist Andre, who does not hold back from Grant and makes him face his demons head on. Andre also has a friend/client, Reneta Koreman, who was a patient of Andre’s before becoming a sex therapist and Andre believed Reneta is just want Grant needs to help move on from his passed. Can these two wounded souls heal each other?
This is a difficult book to read, but I absolutely could not put it down. It does end in a cliffhanger, but the 2nd book (Accuse) is already out. Unfortunately there is a 3rd book on the way, but since the first two books were both released in 2015, I don’t think we will have to wait long for book 3 (fingers crossed)!

Devil’s Game By Joanna Wylde
After a three star read for book 2 in this series (Reapers Legacy), I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from book 3. Well, I was surprised that I liked it so much. I already knew that Em, the daughter of the President of the Reaper’s M/C, Picnic has feelings for Liam a.k.a Hunter, who is a member of their rival M/C gang, Devil’s Jacks. Although the beginning of Devil’s Game is a retelling of the end of book 2, this time being told by Hunter’s POV, I was bored. But I stuck with it and it turned out to be a solid read.
Devil’s Game is the story of how Em and Hunter fall in love and they both fight to be together. At times it did feel like a NA book, but about mid-point, Em started to stand up for herself and became more independent. Hunter was a total bad-ass and was absolutely crazy about Em. I loved their chemistry and couldn’t read fast enough to see how they would figure out how to be together. Great story and probably my favorite of the series, so far.

Frayed Rope

(Ugly Rose Book 1)

By: Harlow Stone

 

Book Blurbfinal butterfly right

A changed name, a different country, a new life.

Carte blanche, right?

Perhaps, and I might have enjoyed it under different circumstances. But the bottom line is- he won’t stop until I’m dead.

I’ve done my best to stay in the shadows. Laying low and only speaking when I absolutely need to. It worked well for me until Ryder walked into my life. Or more accurately, jogged.

The dark and broody owner of Callaghan Securities invaded my reclusive bubble when I least expected it. Knowing that my time spent avoiding people could be coming to an end, I have an important decision to make. Am I able to open up about my past? Let him in, let him help?

Or will I embrace the cold hearted bitch I have become and leave him behind like everything else in my shit life.

I was once a nice woman named Jayne O’Connor.

I’m not sure I know who that is anymore.

Book 1 of a 3 part serial

Oh man! This is one great story and mystery. Can’t wait to pick up the second one. I liked the build up to the romance, the characters were great and an awesome story with an interesting plot. Definitely leaves you wanting more.

Jayne had the good life, not perfect but satisfying with a great family, friends, and job. Until Andrew!

Elle is a take no crap kind of girl. Hard, untrusting, a loner. She’s had a really hard life. But Ryder is working his way under her skin, can he be as perfect as he seems?

Ryder is a hot and sexy ex-military man. He’s never had the time or inclination to settle down. Running into Elle with her filthy mouth and don’t give a crap attitude, he finds himself wanting her.

Can they make a go of it when their pasts are laid out for the other to see?
