Blog Tour - Beautiful Failure By Mariah Cole

Title: Beautiful Failure
Author: Mariah Cole
Genre: New Adult
Publication Date:December 17, 2013 

If you're looking for a heartwarming story about a girl who falls deeply in love with a troubled boy who changes her life--a sob story with pretty metaphors and a million ways that'll tell you how "broken" she is, STOP. Don't read another word of this.

I'm not that type of girl.

My name is Emerald Anderson and I'm not going to bullshit you: I flunked out of college after my sophomore year, I've been fired from every job I've ever taken, and I've never had a fully functioning relationship in my life.

I wish I could say that I had a cheerleader in my corner, someone who says, "No, Emerald--You're great and you are good at something!" but I don't. My grandparents are completely oblivious to my life, and my mother's dying words to me were "You're going to end up just like me one day. A beautiful nothing."

She was right.

As I decide to start my life over and take two jobs that will forever change me--one from the inside, and one from the outside, I keep my mother's words close to my heart so I can keep the sexy and mysterious Carter Black away.

He's the first man who's ever pursued me, the first man who seems bent on finding out why I am the way I am, but he's wasting his time.

I'm not broken. I don't need to be fixed. I'm perfectly fine being a beautiful failure...

I have just finished this book. And if you are looking for a good read this is it. 
Emerald's mum is an escort. She gives Emerald her first drink at an early age, introducing her to aspects of her life. When something terrible happens Emerald goes to live with her grandparents. And there she meets Carter Black. 

For me this story was ok. I felt the pace was a bit lacking. It didn't compel me the way I thought it would. I like Emerald's character. I felt sorry for her and was glad she got to discover herself. 
And Carter what's there not to like. He's hot, sexy and wont take any of Emerald's crap. 

This book is good. It has some great aspects that I really liked and thought were funny. 

I give this 3/5 stars.

Blog Tour - Deep Surrendering By Chelsea Cameron


She's all about rules. He lives by none but his own. When these two meet, the results could be disastrous.

When Marisol Everly’s friend Rory sets her up with Fin Herald, Marisol doesn't expect that it will amount to anything, but that was before she saw Fin's searing blue eyes and mischievous smile. Not to mention, he seems absolutely fascinated by her mundane life. He's everything that a girl could want, but there's something else that ripples under the surface of his flirty behavior. Something darker. Something that fascinates Marisol, but scares her at the same time. Is she willing to risk falling into an abyss she might not get out of?
Barnes & Noble:

My Review 

I love Chelsea Cameron's books and this is book was amazing. 

Marisol has rules when it comes to dating and she doesn't break them... until Fintan Herald. Fin makes her want to break every rule and fast. There is attraction there. but for some reason Fin keeps running out on her for some reason. 

I love the cover on this book. The pace and style of the writing is perfect. it flows. There wasn't any part I didn't like besides it ended. I cant wait for the next book. 

Fin intrigues me. I want to know what his story is. 

Marisol intrigues me. She lives in an apartment that is so small, furniture and clothes from the thrift store. But her parents have money. 

I love her friend Chloe. She's fun, funky and always there for Mari. 

This book is fantastic. I read it in one go. It's easy to read and Chelsea keeps you enthralled with the story. I felt like grabbing and shaking Fin every time he ran. Seriously I was starting to get dizzy. 

Another amazing and exceptional book from Chelsea Cameron. 

This gets 5/5 stars. 

I was gifted a copy of this book was provided by the Author

Blog Tour - Hard Body Rock By Nora Flite

Author: Nora Flite 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 17+ 
Publication Date: February 10, 2014 
Publisher: Silver String 
Event Organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.


From USA Today Bestselling Author Nora Flite

She thought she was stepping into fame:

Meeting Drezden Halifax should have been a dream. But dreams are supposed to be sweet, fragile things that whisk you away. Not monsters crafted from hard fingers, gritty vocal cords and a voice so powerful it could tear my guts right out.

 Maybe my heart, too
 Becoming the guitarist for Four and a Half Headstones was everything I needed.

Too bad the band's lead singer is doing his best to ruin everything I am.

He thought she would solve his troubles:

Lola Cooper, god damn Lola Cooper. She was the perfect guitarist, fingers that could summon a sweet song or punch a chord. She's supposed to save my band, make us come out of this tour in one piece... 

But I just want to tear HER to pieces.

No one should make me feel this way. One look at her, one smell, and I knew I'd have to have her. She does things to me that scare the shit out of me. Make me want to slam her on a wall and listen to her cries: eager or fearful, it doesn't matter.

I'm a monster... 

And I don't even care.

My Review

This is a novella and a quick read. I really liked this story. although it's a quick read it contains the correct ingredients to make you want to read the next book- which I downloaded an read. and will include a review within this review. 

So, Hard Body Rock. is about a rock group - Four and a Half headstones. Who after a fight between lead singer and guitarist. Singer Drezden Halifax fires the guitarist and has to look for a new guitarist. Because they have a lot of bands supporting them they start auditioning for one. Que - Lola Cooper. She's a roadie for her Brother. And she gets  the job. 

This was amazing. It compelled me from the beginning. Just as it got going I had to download the next one. 

Nora does an amazing job with the story. Getting you hooked an then it ends at the right time or not if you don't mind cliff hangers. Which I don't. 

I love Lola's character and Drezden's. I love the attraction between them and how Lola isn't afraid of him. 

If you dont mind reading a book which is part of a serial series then this one is for you. 

I give this 4/5 stars. 

From USA Today Bestselling Author Nora Flite
He knew he was addicted:

I thought it'd be smoking that killed me. Lola is more addictive than tobacco could hope to be.
After feeling her warm body, touching her skin... even if it was an accident, I've given up.

The monster inside of me is going to consume her.

I'm too tired to fight it.

And I honestly don't want to.

She knew it was risking everything:

Why is he trying to mess up my ONE opportunity at success?
My very god damn existence?
I can't handle this pull between us... a gravity that wants to knot our bodies together and leave me merged.


I thought Drezden cared about his band, that he wouldn't dare do anything that might break them-- and me-- apart.

When did I become the one thing worth losing it all over? 

My Review 

This one steps up where Hard Body rock left off. Straight into Lola and Drezden will they won't they? 

Drezden is Hot, everything you can picture a Rock star to look like.

I love this and cant wait for the next one to come out. 
I love Nora's style of writing and how she captures your mind so that it plays out in your mind.  

I love everything about this book. 

I give it 4/5 stars.

Blog Tour - Monster By Francette Phal

Accidental Gold digger.
Circumstance forced Eden Mercer to sell herself to Dominic Armstrong for half a million dollars and in return she is to play the dutiful wife in public and submit to him completely behind closed doors.
The Tyrant.
Dominic is Ruthless, manipulative and sadistic but Eden is determined not to break under his cruelty. But how does one persevere when in the clutches of a Monster?


I can't wait to tell you guys about this book. But wait, you know me, No Spoiler's, especially with this book.

Ok so, Eden is sort of sold to Dominic. They marry. And he treats he terribly. 

That's as much as I can give you on my take of it. Why? Because at the beginning I was like..... WHAT? NO WAY? SERIOUSLY!!!  

THEN, I was like WHAT!!! OMG!!! 

This book is freaking awesome. It's not for the faint hearted. I seen the blurb for this book on another blog. And it captured my attention then. Imagine my glee when I read it. 

I love Eden. You can't not love her. A victim of circumstance. she's strong, intelligent, beautiful and honours her marriage. Until she can't take any more. 

I did actually love Dominic. I was rooting for him. His an Alpha male, Hot, Sexy and has reasons for the way he is. 

When I started reading it I was expecting it to go in a certain direction. But The brilliance of Francette Phal  totally turns you upside down and inside out. I totally did not expect the direction it went. 

I really cant say enough about this book except it's amazing. And needs to be put to the top of your "TBR" list. 

This book pulled every emotion out of me-hope,fear, shock, tears and I was sad when it finished. It's a book that will still have you thinking about it long after you've read it. 

This is one you will definitely need the supplies for. And a huge "DO - NOT DISTURB SIGN" 

Francette, this book is beautifully written everything about it is perfect. Its stunning in everyway. I was enthralled from the first page until the last page. It was read in one go. 

This gets 5/5 stars and 5/5 for movie moments 

****Warning the following excerpt is for 18+ only****
“Soon, sweetie, I promise,” he soothed. She moaned softly as he licked her ear, dropped soft warm kisses across her shoulder blades, he moved down her back, a wet tongue and hot mouth traced and kissed each vertebrae, making a slow and steady progress down her spine. It was a torturous progression that boiled the blood in Eden’s veins as she waited in bated anticipation. Breath stilled in her lungs, eyes widening when he drew apart her butt cheeks and ran his tongue down the wet crevice, from clit to the puckered rosebud of her hole and back again. It was undoubtedly one of the most erotic things he’d ever done to her body, and Eden didn’t know how to breathe properly. She gripped the sheets beneath her hands and bit down hard on her bottom lip to keep from screaming.
It was like a shot of adrenaline straight into her vein. It was blood vessels dilating, her heart galloping uncontrollably in her chest, it was gasping for breath when the air she drew in wasn’t enough. He owned her body, ate it like sun ripened peaches and drank the flowing juices of her weeping womanhood with his rapacious tongue. There were fingers there, slipping between the folds to dive deep into her blistering heat, while his thumb worked at her puckered hole, his wicked, wicked mouth showing Eden exactly how very little she knew her of own body. There was nothing but the explicitness of this act, the hyper awareness that made her feel like each inch of her body was struck by lightning, that killed her and gave her life all in one electrifying jolt. He was merciless and perfect, inviting her to shove her hips back and ride his face.
Death was imminent, sweet cataclysmic death seduced her into the gaping, welcoming arms of her orgasm. She plummeted, shattered into delicious little pieces on his tongue and fingers. Recuperating wasn’t in the stars for her as he gripped her hips and plunged into her depths in one long stroke. Pulling her arms and folding them at the small of her back, he held them there with one large hand as he sank in deeper, so deep that it hurt so good. Ass high in the air, face down in the sheets, Eden was at his complete mercy, filled to absolute capacity with his cock, and she whimpered, the vulnerability of her position giving her a sweet high.
“I’m going to beat this pussy, Eden, and you’re going to scream my name.”
And she did, a promise made completely true as he fucked her like a porn star. She screamed like the world was falling, his repeated strike against her G-spot making her see stars. It was too damn much, his jarring thrusts so deep that she could taste him, spurred her fall and she orgasmed on every inch of his cock.
Francette lives in Massachusetts with her amazingly supportive husband of ten years and her darling two year old son. Reading amazing books has led her to writing and she’s dabbled in fan-fiction before self-publishing her own works. She’s constantly thinking up new stories to write and does her best work when music is playing in the background. Romance is where she’s most comfortable but she hopes to one day venture in mystery novels. She has a weakness for coffee ice cream, tropical fruits and a good glass of wine.

We only talked a few days ago about the possibility of me putting myself out there again and he’s presumptuous enough to think he can fix me up on my first date in ages? Of course he is; he’s Connor fucking Houston. As pissed off as I am, I have to admit a bit of morbid curiosity as to who it might be.
Over the past year, I have heard all about his best friends Daniel, Jake, Mike, and April. I have yet to meet any of them in person, although I sort of feel like I already know them from Connor’s stories. Connor Houston is HOT! Scott Eastwood hot. Melt in your mouth hot. ‘Yes, you can fuck me right here, right now, in this room full of people just because you looked at me with come fuck me eyes and I don’t even know your name’ kind of hot. I can only begin to imagine what his friends look like.

My Review
Debut Book
I cant tell you how much I loved this book. For a Debut book this is awesome.
I loved everything about it. 

Katherine Moore has been friends with Michael Matthews since second grade. Later on they became Girlfriend and Boyfriend. Things are perfect until one night when everything changes and they are torn apart. 

After years of being on her own, Kate(as she is known now) is sent on a blind date with Daniel. And things are about to become turned upside down again. 

Ok no spoilers guys. WOW. It's been a few weeks since I've read this and I still cant stop thinking about this book. 

So, what can I say that I love about this book. Beside's Everything. I loved Katherine's, Daniel's and Michael's characters. Even though I think Michael some what deserved losing Kate, you cant real blame him. 

I loved that there was different point's of view. Usually I would be put off by learning the plot to the story early on in the book. But in this case it works. It works because you are always wondering what's going to happen when they all find out. And as much as you want to pick a team side I think you will be left wondering about the other side.

I was excited to see what would happen next and how it would play out between the character's once they all realised the connections. 

"I love her probably just like you love Kate, but I could never be with her because she's already been with my brother - blood or no blood, we're brothers. You don't do that to your friends, but you really don't do that to your brothers. if they had never dated, though, I definitely would have asked her out." - Connor and Daniel

I read this book in one go. And as much as I couldn't wait to see what happened next i didn't want to get to the end.

I really cant wait for the next book to see how it play's out. I think the style of writing and the pace was spot on. There is nothing I would of said to do differently. 

Dee is super talented in the way she has wrote this book. I would of expected her to be a seasoned author and can only predict great things for her. 

If there is one book you can buy this month, it has to be this one. It pulled my emotions on this book. I cried, laughed, sighed, no matter the emotion I felt it. 

Dee, this book is Stunning. It's exceptionally written. Its has amazing character's and the plot is fantastic. 

I CANT WAIT for more. more. more. 

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

I was gifted a copy of this book purchased by the author in exchange for an honest review.
