All That We Are_MT_Cover

They say everything happens for a reason- that there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel. For the longest time I didn’t think that was true. I had stumbled around in the dark for so many years that I didn’t think I would ever find my way out. But when I finally did, it came in the most unexpected way.

Miles Hollins had been my brother’s best friend for as long as I could remember. We didn’t like each other much growing up. Or rather, we couldn’t stand each other. But after ten years of being gone, a lot had changed.

He wasn’t the same boy I remembered. I wasn’t the same girl either. So much had happened.

I moved away and got married.

Miles joined the military.

We both returned home broken in our own way.

I struggled to find my place in my new life. Miles struggled just to get through the day. But together we slowly began to heal. I quieted his demons and he gave me a sense of belonging. For a while that was enough.

But this is real life, and in real life nothing stays perfect forever. In real life not every story ends with a happily ever after. Sometimes the scars we carry are just too deep.

I promised him I would fight.

He promised me I would lose.

I’ll do everything in my power to prove him wrong. Because it’s when you find the one thing you can’t live without, that you truly find yourself.

All That We Are is a standalone contemporary romance.

Review & Blog Tour: Deception by CA Harms

Deception_CAH_Banner CR

Title: Deception
Author: CA Harms
Release: November 13, 2018
Cover Designer: Melissa Gill



Deception: The act of deceiving someone.

That became a pattern in my life. It was the way the chips fell. I’m destined to be that girl that fell for the wrong guy. If he was a liar and a cheat, I found him or he found me. It didn’t really matter how it happened, it just always did.

But when I met Jake, I thought he was different. He was just a guy trying to get by, much like me in a sense. He was happy with the little things in life…he made me feel safe and settled.

That was until I found out that his name, his life, and the man he pretended to be, were nothing but a fraud. He used me to get the answers he needed, and in the process, he managed to take my last ounce of hope and crush it.

I just wanted him gone. I wanted to forget the times we shared, the laughs we had. I wanted to ignore the fact that he’d so easily found a place in my heart.

Only there was one problem… I wasn’t allowed to forget.

I am reminded daily of him. Each morning, I have no choice but to look into the same, beautiful eyes he possessed. I see his smile, and that same shade of dark melted chocolate hair that at one point, I loved running my fingers through.

Every single day I reminded of the fact that the father of my child is nothing more than a man that truly never existed.


5 Star

Ok, I was pretty impressed with this story. The characters are really awesome and whole of plot was riveting. This is a story of deception and lies, betrayal and danger, and love and forgiveness. There are so many emotions and aspects of this book that kept me engaged with the story.

Jake is definitely a character that I originally disliked, but then the more I read the more I began to empathize with him and what he was going through. And the more that I read the more I began to like him and really want things to work out. But he really has some stuff that he needed to fix before anything else could continue, but he made a complete change in himself and in someone else.

Blair is so totally awesome! She has definitely had some hard knocks and quite a bit of pain that headed her way. But her character persevered and moved on too live her life, even as she battled her own feelings on the way. But forgiveness is divine, even if she doesn’t think she can give it. But what really drew me to her was her strength. She came by that in abundance during this story.

Overall, freaking awesome read! Everyone one of my reader triggers was massively tripped and I completely devoured the story. Definitely two thumbs up and a recommended read for me. Happy reading!

Working at Stained Skin and seeing the way the club have each other’s backs, she wants nothing more than to be a part of the sisterhood, even if it does mean Titz is her sponsor. Dubbed Triple D, Billie Jo’s new role as prospect comes just as the man she thought would be her forever slaps her with a truth that shatters her heart and nearly crushes her spirit. But when she is confronted by a second man – one she thought she’d never see again – 3D has to decide … will she be able to get her tattoo and give ‘em too?

Dirty Bitches MC Season 2_Till We Aint Strangers Anymore

Only available at the following retailers for one week

5 Star

The DBMC is back and better than ever!! Not only have the authors of this awesome series done something totally new, collaborating with readers, but they totally scored with these new stories (at least in my humble opinion they did!). These new books are filled with some serious testosterone and shows the DBMC girls as they have not been seen before. We get to see Links in her role as enforcer, and that was an eye opener, and see Titz really let loose in way that I didn’t see in the first book.

All of the stories in this season are about prospects looking to get into the club, but we also get to learn more about the Southern Lords MC, and boy howdy was that a smashing hit in my book!

Lost Highway by Avelyn Paige and Dani Lawson is about Shotz. And whoa boy was this a doozy of a story. Declan is dang luscious and goes after what he wants, and he really delivers in every department. And Shotz is really something. Her character is very strong and she has learned more about herself and her strength. Truly an awesome read.

Lay Your Hands on Me by Winter Travers and Nikki Horn deals with Kit. We met Kit in the last season as is Stiletto’s sister. And what she finds in this book is home, something that I feel that she has been searching for for a while. And we get to see more Mr. Johns, who I found to be an absolute hoot!

No Regrets by Geri Glenn and Carissia Beckler deals with Onyx and her two (you read that right … two scrumptious hunks of burning love (sorry couldn’t help myself)) new suitors. Now this book was freaking AWESOMESAUCE! The danger to the club is ramped up and we really get to see how these ladies lay down the law.

‘Til We Ain’t Strangers Anymore by GM Scherbert and Liz Preston is about Triple D, or Billy Jo. She gets more than she bargained for in this book. She has been knocked down a couple of times, but finally she is going to get her own person knight on shining chrome that slay her demons, if the DBMC women don’t get to them first. Loved Titz in this story. Her level of crazy really ramps up and one part had me laughing, even if it shouldn’t (have to read to understand … but you will).

Overall, A++++++++! Totally awesome addition to the DBMC storyline and new awesome characters being introduced. The women ratchet up the damage and shenanigans. Some of it with hilarity and some of it with a good old fashion whopping! I so totally recommend and cannot wait for the next season to come out! Happy reading!!

Forever. No exceptions.

Release Blitz: Salvation by Jane Henry

Salvation_JH_Banner RDB

Title: Salvation
Author: Jane Henry
Series: NYC Doms
Release: November 16, 2018




Seven years ago, she was sheltered. In need of guidance. I was a newly-ordained priest with a vow of celibacy. Our love affair was torrid, and wrong, and ended in heartbreak.
We broke it off and went our separate ways.
I left the priesthood. She left her home.
Seven years later, she’s stranded in my NYC Club while a blizzard rages outside, and she wants a taste of dominance.
I won’t let another man lay eyes on her, much less touch her.
She’s still my everything. My salvation.
And there’s no way I’m letting her go.


Salvation_JH_Teaser RDB


“I wanted to push you to safeword,” he confesses, a note of regret in his voice. “But you won’t, will you?”

“No,” I whisper. My throat tightens. I want to open my eyes, but I want to obey him even more. “Why would I ever need to safeword with you?”

“I’m not safe, Chandra.” He brushes my thighs with his lips, soft and sweet, and my head falls back, my eyes squeezing closed tighter. I’m growing accustomed to the low throb between my thighs, and pulse of need. I’m riding it like a high. I can control this. I can take this. I’m strong, and I can do this.

When he suckles the skin at my thighs, I arch my back. I let out an involuntary whimper, and my mind flashes to our first time together. I remember.

We’re in his bed, sheets of pristine white tangled around our bodies, and he holds me as if he doesn’t want me to fly away, so close our sweat-slicked skin melds together as one. He’s trembling himself, exercising restraint like a bridled stallion. I can feel the way he wants to claim me with savage, hard thrusts. But it’s my first time, and he doesn’t want to hurt me.

He took his time ravishing my body, kissing every inch of me until my whole body teemed with need, working his way down with flutters of adoration from my temple to my toes. There isn’t a place on my body that hasn’t been blessed with his mouth, not a place he hasn’t worshipped with his tongue or hands. And now I want him. Now I need him in me, the sudden desperate longing clawing at my chest. I’m a virgin and sex scares me, but now I need him like the sun-parched earth needs rain. I’ll wither and die until he makes me his. Though they would damn us to hell, every single one of them, my heart knows better. My heart knows the truth.

This is right. This is perfect.

“I’ll be as gentle as I can,” he whispers in my ear, the deep, tender voice making tears spring to my eyes.

“Not too gentle,” I whisper, a joke and a plea that makes him chuckle.

“I love you,” he whispers, as he glides into me. My chest expands with the words and motion, and I clasp my arms around his broad, muscled back.

“I love you,” I whisper, a delicious friction fusing our bodies together.


USA Today Bestselling author Jane has been writing since her early teens, dabbling in short stories and poetry.
