Book Blitz/Giveaway: Infatuated By Elle Jordan

You can't hide from love...even when you want to. 
When I took a job as a bartender at Hanson’s to help pay for my classes, the last thing I expected to find was Kale Wilder. He’s sexy, smart, and he makes me smile and laugh faster than anyone ever has. More importantly, he makes me believe in Mr. Right. 
But Kale came to the wrong place at the wrong time, because someone else has his eyes on me. Someone who watches my every move. 
Kale’s the only one I want, but the more I feel for him, the more I fear for my safety. Because the other guy is getting closer and doesn't want to share. He’s made it clear if he can’t have me, no one can.

“You brought me a date?”
“I did,” he said, rocking back on his heels.
I eyed him, then made a show of looking around. “Is he cute?”
The sputtering fish look that crossed his face made me feel better than it should have. He recovered quickly and nodded. “I think he’s rather handsome. Kind of rugged. Blue eyes, dark hair.”

Cover Re-reveal: It All Started with a Lima Bean by Kimi Flores

Title: It All Started with a Lima Bean (Intertwined Hearts book 1)
Author: Kimi Flores
Published: August 8th, 2013
Cover Reveal Arranged By: The Book Avenue

A past that haunts can be laid to rest through the act of forgiveness, even if the person you forgive is yourself. It must be gifted freely.

Abby Sullivan cherishes the life she is creating for herself in her hometown of Santa Barbara, California. She adores her best friend and supportive family. Her job as a kindergarten teacher offers her life hope and purpose. She is very talented at many things, especially hiding the pain of her past. That is until her world collides with Caleb Hunter’s, giving them both a lesson in forgiveness and love.

A life changing love is cruelly snatched by sickness and death. A person must be willing to give love, the greatest gift of all, to receive love.

A successful writer, Caleb is living life day-to-day. Giving refuge to his sad and lonely heart since his wife's sudden death from cervical cancer, his primary focus becomes honoring her memory by rearing their five-year-old daughter, Madison. Yet, when Madison Hunter walks into Miss Abby’s kindergarten class, everything changes for all three of them.

With a little nudge from a loving mother-in-law who has everyone’s best interest at heart, anything is possible, especially when forgiveness and love gift even more blessings than ever imaginable. 


"Planting Seeds of Love"

“I think my bean was lonely, so I want to plant two of them together right here, in the ground. Grammy says that it’s portant that roots have lots of room to grow so that they’re strong and healthy. She also said that you have to watch for weeds and yank them out right away so that they don’t hurt the plants.” She made a quick jerking motion as if she were pulling at something.

The boots squeaked as Madison knelt down and dug a small hole. Sensing the importance of this moment, the adults looked on, and then at each other. “Now is the most portant part. Grammy said that nothing grows without love, so here Miss Abby, kiss these lima beans.” Abby looked at Madison then Caleb. She figured she might as well kiss the beans and get it over with. She watched Caleb’s eyes fixed on her pouty-lipped kiss. Once her lips left the seeds, Madison placed them into Caleb’s large palm. “Your turn Daddy.” He paused a moment, then gave them a quick peck. “My turn.” Madison picked the seeds up from Caleb’s hand with her delicate fingers, kissed them, and swayed back and forth, as though she was hugging the beans. She said a little prayer then placed them in the hole she’d dug. “Now I’m going to cover them so that they're nice and warm.” She smoothed her hand across the soil, pushing dirt over the gap. “I just know they’ll grow because they're happy, loved, and not lonely anymore.” While still kneeling, she poured some water on top of the small dirt mound.

Something in the air shifted as Abby and Caleb’s eyes met, knowing this statement was truer than the sweet little girl who'd said it would understand. “I think you're right sweetie. Everyone needs love and companionship to thrive.” Caleb continued his deep gaze into Abby’s eyes as she held her stare into his.

Kimi lives in So Ca with her high school sweetheart, prom date, and now husband of over 20 years as well as with her two boys that bring so much joy and laughter to her life. There is never a dull moment in Kimi's day with these three guys by her side. They are happily involved in volunteer work with several local non-profit organizations and believe that everyone needs to do their part, so a portion of her sales will always go to charity.

At an early age, Kimi discovered the magical world of imagination. Many stories were written as well as illustrated by her as a child. Not realizing at the time that she had dyslexia, schoolwork became extremely difficult, and her confidence as a reader and writer dwindled. Thanks to a high school teacher who took the time to invest in her, Kimi found a love for literary legends such as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Washington Irving and Jane Austen. This teacher helped Kimi create one of the happiest school memories she holds. Discovering in college that she had the learning disability was terribly discouraging since help was not readily available and her reading and writing confidence fell once again.

Needing to find a distraction when her husband unexpectedly ended up in the hospital for a week, Kimi explored the indie reading world. Jumping in with everything she had, Kimi pushed herself to read over 150 books last year. During that process, many characters reappeared in her imagination and insisted that their stories be told. Putting all self-doubt and barriers aside, she started writing the outlines and drafts for the four books in her Intertwined Hearts Series as well as bits and pieces of the three books in her next series, Down by the Bay.

Her message to you is similar to that of pop icon,'s:

Review: The Devil's Masquerade: The Poison (The Devil's Eyes, #4) By Jennifer Loren

Nick Jayzon has battled many enemies, and has defeated them all. But now he faces the ultimate evil. A brutal Savage of his own blood who will stop at nothing to control him, to Poison Nick, and to harden his heart forever. Many have tried to stop Asmodeus and many have died in the process. But now, he will try, and he isn't coming alone. They won't all survive. And the one soul Savage fears, is scared and is considering running away with her children before they are murdered too. But there is one Jayzon ally, which Savage has long forgotten that will come back to help them as well as a much stronger and deadlier ally, will consider turning against her own and siding with the Jayzons. But together, can they destroy the devil? Free Nick before it’s too late? Before the Masquerade seals his fate?

My Review

Okay wow! what a bloody roller-coaster ride!
The starting at first was like eh what's going on? Then you find out about Dante, Nick's dad and his story. In the previous books we aren't told much about his dad and what we are told doesn't show Dante in a positive light. The starting is vital and explains a lot into what actually happened before Nick and everyone else was born and how Savage has always been evil, and how he effects those around him.I felt so sorry for Dante and I totally understand why he wasn't close to his kids, why he pushed them away.He was like a little Nick aww bless him! You find out that Savage is an evil controlling power hungry man who like to be the one in charge.

The Poison carries on from where the previous book left off.I was a little nervous about reading this one as I just really didn't want Nick to go bad or bad things to happen! Oh how things changed.I was hooked and I couldn't stop reading, the twists and turns had me on edge and jittery.I needed to know what would happen next.
As Nick's power starts to heighten so does his enemies.

She falls to the floor with him in her arms and cries right along with him, and along with Elijah, me, and everyone else within ear shot. No on is dry-eyed tonight.

When you go to war some people will fall and others will survive.There are some heart-breaking moments that I just did not expect.Why? whyyyy? how cruel *sobbing*

I loved all the characters as I always have in this series the new ones were mostly evil! I wanted to help kill them pftt. Kayla as always loved her spirit and charisma, she kept on fighting, she can't lose.
And she is going to go get her Nick back.Yes Yes you go girl!!

“Will I die running or will I die fighting? For Nick ... I would die fighting the devil himself.”

Nicky is such a cutie aww! In this book you see more of Elijah loved him, his funny comments and well just all of him. I really hope he settles down I feel so sorry for him as he wants a family like Nicks.
He is so sweet and lovely with Kayla in this one but there is still banter Ryan, Elijah and Kayla make a great team!

True to his word, Elijah never makes a move, but he holds my hand whenever I need him to.-Kayla

I want my Nick back!! NOW! I hope the last book ends well.I was surprised that this book doesn't end on a cliffhanger yet it still makes you want to carry on reading. Ahhh Brilliant! Well done Jennifer Loren!!

Right now lets get to Franky or as I like to call her..Fanny face! Urghhh I wanted to kill her..did I say kill her? why yes I guess I did but wait i don't want to shoot her or stab her no no that would just be too kind.I would like to rip her apart and chop her into tiny pieces coz I am just an awesome person :)

Bring on the next book!!

Blog Tour/Review/Giveaway: Wish I may By Lexi Ryan

WISH I MAY by Lexi Ryan
October 2013

I grew up wishing on stars.

My father taught me to believe…in destiny, in magic, in happily ever after. Dreams were my scripture and the starry night sky was my temple. Then Mom stopped believing, left him, and took us with her. At the age of sixteen, I cashed in my dreams to pay the rent, pawned my destiny to keep my sisters together.

Now, seven years later, I’m returning home, grieving the death of my mother, and settling my sisters back into the life Mom threw away. I never intended to stay. I don’t want to deal with my father, who is so invested in the spiritual world he forgets the physical. I don’t want to face William Bailey, whose eyes remind me of the girl I was, the things I’ve done, and the future I lost.
This would all be easier if Will hated me. As it is, I have to hold my secrets close so they won’t hurt him more than they’ve already hurt me. But he wants to be in my life. He wants what I can’t bring myself to confess I sold. He wants me.

I find myself looking to my stars again...wondering if I dare one more wish.

My Review

Lets me start off by telling your that I haven't had a chance to read the first book so I didn't know much about what happened previously and about the other characters. Even with that I still think Will is the best character and I'm sure I would have loved him in book 1 too!

He is just such an awesome, loving character and damn so many times I was like Cally piss off move the hell back let me comfort him awww Will! And other times I was screaming at Cally about breaking his heart.Why do you have to hurt him huh?! He can be happy..with me ;)

"I want you to always believe you deserve whatever you can wish for, Cally. As long as you'll let me, I'll make your wishes come true."

William Bailey is an artist and professor and his love life hasn't ever gone as planned.Things have gotten that bad that he is even talking to someone his grandma has set him up with. But everything changes when someone from his past gets lost and somehow ends up outside his house.

Cally Fisher has had it rough since day one with a mother who is a druggy and a father who is absorbed with his spiritual journey the responsibility of bringing up her 2 sisters lands on her.But now her mother is dead and she is back to the place she loved to drop her sisters off with her dad. It all changes when the one person she hoped to avoid finds her lost.

"After seven years. After the lamest breakup in the history of breakups. After breaking his heart and dismissing my own, I'm still very much his."

Will and Cally loved each other they were always together until Cally had to leave due to her moms insistence. Moving away and looking after everyone with no help was a pain and Cally suffered an awful lot to keep food on the table, to look after her sisters. She was just a kid who had to grow up too fast, she stopped believing in shooting stars and wishes and dreams. It all ended for her the very same night she broke Will's heart and her own.I felt sorry for her and hated that she never let anyone in, she had so much bottled up, so much anger, frustrations, bitterness and much more. She should have let Will in, she shouldn't have broke his heart.But hey the past is the past..

Or is it? What happens when past and present collide and there is no place to run?

”Look at you. You’re all grown up.” He grins, and my knees go a little weak. How could I have forgotten the effect this man’s smile has on my knees?
“I could say the same for you.” I bite my lip. Hopefully no drool has escaped.
That knee-killing grin grows wider. I’m toast.

There were some parts I did not expect, this book kept my attention right until the end.I was glad that this was in both Will's and Cally's POV because it made you see a clearer picture of what was happening and how both main characters felt. It also made you feel conflicted because I felt hurt and annoyed on Will's part even knowing what was going on with Callie.She kept hurting him and he kept forgiving.She assumed that because he has money that things were simple for Will and the rest.
I loved the chemistry between the main characters and loved how supportive their friends were in all of this.

‘I push myself out the door before I can change my mind and I’m greeted by a night of glittering stars. The stars in New Hope are brighter and more plentiful than anywhere else I've ever been. When I was a little girl, I’d would look out my bedroom window each night and pick my favorite one and only then would I make a wish. My father taught me to believe in the magic of wishes and destiny, and I was such an adoring daughter that his words were my scripture and the starry night sky became my temple.’

Lexi Ryan takes you on a journey of forgiveness, mistake, pain, heartbreak and finding happiness, wishing and believing. This book is about how Cally and Will overcome everything and learn to love despite the past and everything bad.To keep believing everything happens for a reason and in the end it will all be alright.

Mini interview 

For JLA – What made you decide to go back and write Daimon? 
 I wanted to show the readers what Alex was facing at the beginning of Half-Blood that caused her to have trust issues and such a bad attitude.

For Alex – If you could time travel back to the day Aiden came to bring you back to the covenant, what’s the one thing you would tell him the moment you saw him?  
You’re hot.

For Aiden – Knowing the end, would you still go after Alex to bring her back to the covenant? 
 I would have still gone after Alex, but I wouldn’t have taken her back to the Covenant.  I would have taken her away somewhere that I felt I could protect her.

Deleted Scene
From: Protect Me
Book #1 of The Protected Love Series
By Jennifer Culbreth

To view my review click here ->My Review
Location: Chapter Twelve, Page 204

She leaned back in his chair as she flipped open the top to the pizza box. She wasn’t hungry, and food would just make her more tired at this point. She unlocked her phone screen and hit her contacts button scrolling down until she saw the newly updated picture of her and Ryan next to his contact name. She had taken it the afternoon they had gone to the chocolatier. She smiled at the thought of how much fun they had. She was too tired to fight at this point. She really just wanted to be home, with Ryan. She pressed the dial button as she put the phone to her ear.
It rang twice “Babe, are you ok?” His voice came through the receiver.
“Yeah, I’m fine. I’m just really tired and I don’t think I am going to make it until closing. Is there any way you could come and get me?” She could hear the exhaustion in her own voice.
“Of course I can, I will be there in just a few minutes. What do you say you come back and stay at my house tonight? I can have anything you need brought over, or picked up and delivered.” He sounded hopeful that she would say yes.
“Um, sure. I would love that.” She smiled into the phone as it reflected through her voice.
“Ok, I will see you in a just a few minutes.”
“Ok, see you soon.”
She pressed end on the screen, and was startled when she saw the door open to Trent’s office. At first she thought that maybe he had left something and was returning to get it before he went to his meeting. When she looked up to the man in front of her, she realized it wasn’t Trent. To her surprise Mr. Wilcox came in through the office door dressed in a designer suit and shoes. She immediately shot up out of the chair. The invasion of privacy immediately making her feel uneasy.
“Excuse me, I didn’t mean to startle you, Ms. Hastings” He held his hand up as if to excuse himself for barging in. “I was looking for Mr. Williams but apparently he is not in this evening.” His familiar southern accent rang out through her ears.
“Uh, no. Trent isn’t here. He left for a business meeting.” Her eyes darted around the room in search of something to protect herself with. “Mr. Wilcox, what are you doing here in LA?”
 “Well you see, Abbi, I happen to be a pretty well-known business man out here. I happen to do business with your boss as well; meaning I do a lot of traveling from Atlanta to Los Angeles, mostly for the weather though.” He regarded her coyly before stepping closer. She could feel her body immediately tense. Causing the aches through her body to sing out. “Mr. Williams has explained that the two of you are particularly close aside from your working relationship. You can imagine my surprise when he mentioned your name.” He smiled over at her before continuing, “Now, seeing as how I helped with your father’s estate maybe you could tell me who might he be meeting with tonight? I didn’t realize that Mr. Williams had any other associates aside from myself.”
“Oh, no Trent and I aren’t in a relationship.” She stepped back and shook her head. Where on earth would he have gotten that idea? Why is Trent telling people they were together? Why was Mr. Wilcox here in LA? All of the questions began piling into her head. He’d seemed harmless when she’d first met him but something in her gut was telling her that he wasn’t the most honorable man.
“No need to explain anything to me, I pass no judgment on how he runs the business. I can assure you I won’t report it back to HR.” He gave her a sideways grin as he stepped closer to the desk.
She felt the sudden urge to get out of there. She wasn’t sure what he was here for, but she could tell that it wasn’t anything that she wanted to be involved in.
“Listen, Mr. Wilcox, I really have no idea why you’re here. I also have no idea where Trent is or who he is meeting. So I should just be on my way.” She made a step towards the door.
“By all means, I understand you have a very important job to do. However I would like for you to pass along some information for me, I want my money. And I don’t like having to wait.” His tone suddenly turned very serious.
“Listen, I have about twenty dollars in my wallet. If that will cover it than I will go get it right now. If not, then I think you’re talking to the wrong person.” She edged her way a little closer to the exit at the side of the room.
“You’re very funny, Ms. Hastings. I would hate to have to break that funny bone of yours because of your boyfriend’s misjudgment in my patience.” He reached towards her and she flinched back. He recoiled his hand, “Please pass the message on to him, and let him know that I will be back, soon.” With that he turned and headed towards the door.
An eerie silence transcended throughout the office. It was so quite her ears were ringing. She needed to get out of here. She didn’t give a damn if she had to wait outside for Ryan she was not going to stay in this building any longer tonight. She found herself very jumpy as she made her way out of the office and down the hallway, checking over her shoulder every few steps. The feeling that someone was going to jump out from behind a door caused her to almost run. Relief flooded through her body as she made her way out of the door and down towards the bar counter. She nudged her way through the crowd as she found Judy standing just towards the end of the bar.


In this deleted scene you see that Mr. Wilcox, the attorney from Atlanta who helped her with her father’s estate in the beginning chapter of Protect Me, is actually used as the villain. I read over this scene many times before deciding to change. I felt as though Abbi had entrusted too many less than honorable people by this point in the book. I wanted some of the people she had relied on to actually have good intentions.
The other reason I decided to change Mr. Wilcox as being the villain to Mr. Hernandez is because I felt it would flow easier. I knew that certain characters wouldn’t be continuing on to the next book and I wanted to keep the threat of retaliation alive. So instead I re wrote this scene and introduced Mr. Hernandez. Other scenes earlier in the book, i.e. when Abbi is eaves dropping on Trent’s conversation with the “mystery man” were added to incorporate this scene into the book.

My Review

What an ending to this series!This book is filled with drama, twists and turns and much more.It had parts which made me laugh and others which made me want to pull my hair out.Its sad to see it finish I want more Eric. Oh but I can not wait to read Carissa's book she is a great character and I am intrigued.Oh and that hot English dude, hope he stays ;)

"Can I have my girlfriend back now?" Eric pouts, pretending to feel left out.
"Oh, now you hush boy.She's our guest."
"And what am I? Chopped Liver?" He pouts his lower lip out and it takes all the willpower in me not to bite it between my teeth.

This book starts off where Spark (book 1) left off its like just when things start to settle down BOOM! problem arises. Like seriously stop it, all that drama must be so damn exhausting! At the end of this book I was drained and so glad it was a happily ever after.

In Burn I am glad that there is more about Eric's past and his family oh his POV. I feel like we got to know Eric more even though in book 1 there weren't indications about Eric having a rough past so this was a surprise. I thought it was only Velaney who has a lot of issues.I loved how protective and caring Eric was and how he was very supportive even through some rough times where Velaney makes some stupid decisions.

Do you believe everything happens for a reason?
When Velaney makes a difficult decision she could easily tear a lot of new relationships apart.
So what will happen, will Eric and Velaney's relationship survive?

I really enjoyed book 1 and was looking forward to see how the story would continue.There were a lot of things happening which I didn't expect and in this book I was quite pissed off with Velaney. I understand that she has past issues which keep re-surfacing but because of her issues I felt like she repeatedly hurt Eric.And he just didn't deserve that! NO!

Velaney struggles through life and I'm glad she changes over time, I was okay with her again by the end.
Okay now her family..I HATE THEM!
Urgh manipulative disgusting people that should be in jail or buried alive (I like option B)

"..When someone changes you for the better and loves you despite all your faults, you better marry that person, swoop them up and claim their body as yours-otherwise someone smarter than you will."
