New Release + Review – COLD by Max Monroe

Cold banner

COLD, book two in the suspenseful Stone Cold Fox Trilogy by Max Monroe, is now LIVE!

Cold by Max MonroeI wanted a second chance. What I got was a repeat.

She was too beautiful. Too smart. And her emerald green eyes saw too much.

I wanted space—she took it away.
I craved her lips—she gave me her kiss.
I screwed it up—she got smart.

Avoiding me is the right thing to do. I’m messed up, tortured, and probably always will be.
But I still want her.
Her mind. Her body. Her heart.
I want it all.

And this time, I’m in control.
No matter what I have to do, I will make her mine.

Note: Levi and Ivy’s story will continue in Book Three—Fox.

I thought I was going to kick the bucket, WAITING impatiently for Cold to release after reading Stone. But, NOW….now I’m putting my life on hold, closing the drapes on all my windows, and living off of simple foods like licorice and dry cereal, until the time comes when Fox gets here. Do you hear that Max & Monroe?…I’m subjecting myself to misery. All because of YOU. That’s right…this is all YOUR fault. Because after the EPIC cliffy you just left me with, MISERY loves company, and that company is ME.

Seriously…HOW am I going to function now after reading this book? HOW?!? I just….I can’t even….I want….I NEED FOX RIGHT NOW!!! **hysterical sobs of desperation**

This book…MY GOD, this book gutted me, played around with my innards like a child’s play-thing, and haphazardly put me back together again. The sadness, the pain, the heartbreak, the SUSPENSE….y’all take pleasure in torturing us, I just know it!

To say this series is a must-read is like asking if bears sh*t in the woods. It’s a no-freaking-brainer. With that said, if you haven’t picked up this book yet, or Stone for that matter, DO. IT. NOW. Do it. Read them, then come join me in my pit of despair. I’ll share my food, I promise.

5+ Stars!

The extraordinary Transcend Duet by Jewel E. Ann, is AVAILABLE NOW!

Epoch Amazon.jpg

Some lives end unfinished, and some transcend time.

After a horrific incident, Swayze finds herself trapped between two lives. Patchy memories and fear for her own safety thrust her into a gut-wrenching journey to uncover the truth.

Will she let her dreams slip away to seek retribution and find the missing pieces to a puzzle that existed a lifetime ago?

“I’m not going to watch you self-destruct. I’m not going to watch you fall in love with another man.”

Or will she discover the only truth that matters?

Epoch pushes the boundaries of what we believe and what we know. It redefines fate and proves that the only thing separating the heart and the soul is an infinite timeline.

“I think a part of you will be mine to love in every life.”

I am trying to find a way to arrange my thoughts so that they’ll make sense. But as soon as I finished it my thoughts were just a jumble of random words.

Oh God.
No.
Finished?
More.
Beautiful.
My heart.
More.
More.
More.

I feel as if something inside of me went missing as soon as I was finished with this story. Like this story isn’t done with me yet and I will be lost thinking about it for days and days.

Rarely such stories come around that permanently shift something inside of you and alters the way you see things. The Transcend Duet is one such story. I will carry this story in my heart for a long time and cherish it with everything I am.

All I want to do right now is talk about this book and sort out all of my feelings and then re-read it again because this story deserves to be read a hundred times.

Just take a day off and devour this story. You’ll not regret it at all but be prepared to be useless for the days to come.

5 Stars!

Excerpt

He removes his helmet and his bandana while I slide off the Harley. I could watch him all day. The meticulous way he puts our helmets on the shelf and wipes the bugs off his bike mesmerizes me. Griffin takes care of everything he owns-the new shiny things as well as the old, weathered things like his house and garage.
“I think you’re an old soul, Griffin Calloway.”
He hangs the rag on the hook and shoots me his sexiest grocery-store-guy smile. “Why is that?”
“My parents used to tell people I was wise beyond my years because I knew stuff most kids my age didn’t know. That was just knowledge, random facts, not wisdom. But you … you have an appreciation for things and you take care of them like someone twice your age might do.”
“My parents always took care of things. They still do. It’s just how I was raised.” He shrugs.
“No. Hayley and Sophie are complete disasters. I’ve seen their rooms. Chloe is a little tidier but still not you. I don’t think you were conditioned to be this way, I think it’s nature more than nurture.”
“An old soul, huh? From another time?” He pulls me into his chest and nuzzles my neck while lifting me off my feet.
I hug him with my arms, legs, and entire being. It took twenty-one years, but I finally found where I fit in life, and it’s every inch of my body pressed to his.
“You make me feel safe,” I murmur but it sounds more like a moan warring between physical pleasure and emotional pain. It’s an unsettling feeling that I have such a strong need to feel safe. I don’t understand it.
“You are safe,” he says between kisses beneath my ear.
“You make me feel like I belong.” My breaths race to catch up to my pulse.
“You belong with me.” He walks us to the garage door, shuts off the light, and closes the door behind us.
He’s my mind’s favorite place to go. When I think of him-of us-I don’t feel crazy. And maybe I should feel crazy because we’re both young and inexperienced in life and love. But I don’t want to think about the numbers that make up our ages or the months we’ve been together.
We crash through the front door like the first big gust of wind at the front of a storm.
“You make me feel needed,” I whisper just before his mouth claims mine.
His house is bigger than my apartment, but only by one bedroom. We don’t make it to either bedroom. He deposits me on the sofa and shrugs off his shirt.
“I need you.” He unties his boots and kicks them off while unfastening his pants as I shimmy out of my clothes. “In fact, I am pretty fucking sure you’re all I truly need.”
Twenty-three-year-old guys don’t say that. His soul is not simply old, it’s ancient like that of a great poet … who may have said fuck a few times.
I tug at his partially unfastened jeans.
He grabs my hand. “Close your eyes.”
“Why?” My head cocks to the side.
“Because I know you don’t want to see the tattoo on my ass.”
“Shut. Up.” I bat his hand away and tug down his jeans with both hands. A few moments of silence settle between us as I stare at his form before me. “I still blush when I look at you.” My gaze trails up to meet his eyes.
Griffin steps out of his jeans and briefs and kneels on the sofa between my legs as I lie back. “I know what else makes you blush.” He slowly dips his head between my legs, and my fingers curl into the sofa cushion.

Review Tour + Excerpt – STAR by BB Easton

Today we have the blog tour for STAR by BB Easton. STAR is available for FREE on Kindle Unlimited. Grab your copy today!

Title: STAR
Author: BB Easton
Series: 44 Chapters
Release: April 12, 2018

Synopsis

Because BB Easton had so much fun writing her best-selling, award-winning memoir, 44 CHAPTERS ABOUT 4 MEN, she decided to give each of her four men his own steamy stand-alone. STAR is Hans’s book—a real-life rock star romance…with a twist.

In 1999, Brooke “BB” Bradley met her Prince Charming. He was the tall, tattooed, wickedly handsome bass player for the up-and-coming rock band, Phantom Limb. But, more importantly, he was hers. She knew it the moment he flashed her that shy, dimpled smile.

And he knew it too.

Hansel “Hans” Oppenheimer wore his heart on one sleeve and scrawled lyrics about BB on the other. Unlike the assholes of her past, he showered her with tenderness, took her places she’d never been before, and showed her the type of all-consuming love she’d thought only existed in fairy tales.

But, like any good fairy tale, BB’s road to happily ever after was paved with challenges, and right when she least expected it…it forked.

In 1999, Brooke “BB” Bradley met her Prince Charming.

In 2000, she met her soul mate.

Y’all aren’t even ready for this book. NOT ONE BIT!

I have this need to get a hold of each and every person I know and shake them till they concede to reading all of BB’s books. I cannot ever stop thinking about this freaking brilliant series. No words of praise will ever be enough.

As is always, this story was swoon-worthy, sexy, hilarious and just everything you need to fall in love and then ruin your life because obviously that’s going to happen.

BB’s character is dealing with the aftermath of Harley’s douchebaggery and Knight finally leaving for Iraq. Then Hans the rock God enters her life and causes all kinds of delicious trouble.

After finishing STAR all I want for myself is a tattooed bass player with gorgeous abs who will write sad songs for me then, make me love him and then break my heart. I don’t even care about anything else at this point. JUST DO THIS FOR ME UNIVERSE!!!!

I don’t even want to address Knight rn because I will just curl up into a ball and cry my eyes and lungs out.

Also, somehow KEN has incredible game? Like it came out of nowhere and now I have a mid midlife crisis cause no one could have been prepared for that. I had to put down my kindle and walk away because my soul was wrecked with that incident.

To say I am waiting for SUIT with baited breath would be an understatement cuz BISH I HAVE’T BEEN BREATHING SINCE SKIN. Life has no meaning till next year. I am cancelled.

Excerpt

Equestria

I awoke, nauseous and confused, in a lilac-colored room plastered with peeling My Little Pony decals. The midday sunlight leaked in through the closed blinds, searing and uninvited. The sheets touching my exposed skin were itchy. Stifling. And my mouth tasted like the inside of a beer bottle that had been used as an ashtray.

Ugh.

I searched my alcohol-logged brain for clues that might help explain why I was waking up inside the magical land of Equestria. Images from the night before began to surface, grainy and out of order. It was like flipping through a scattered stack of Polaroids taken during a house party—scene after scene of teenagers in black lipstick and black vinyl thrashing in the darkness. A house party. A keg in the kitchen. A heavy-metal band playing in the living room. A guy. A tall guy with messy black hair and a full sleeve of horror-movie tattoos.

The bass player.

Locking eyes with Clover, a purple pony with a peeling pink mane, I thought, This is what Cinderella must have felt like the morning after the ball. Except I don’t even have a glass slipper to prove it was real. And also, I’m pretty sure Cinderella wasn’t this hungover.

Groaning, I pulled the pony-covered polyester comforter up under my chin and rolled over.

Onto a body.

I screamed and scrambled backward, realizing a moment too late that, with two people in a twin-size bed, there was no backward to scramble to. As soon as I felt myself falling over the edge, I reached out and grabbed the first thing I could get my hands on.

It was an arm. And it was covered with the stuff of nightmares. Hellraiser and Jason and Freddy and Pennywise sneered at me as I clawed at their faces, trying to keep from going overboard.

The arm flexed and jerked away from me, but I held on for dear life. The motion yanked me back onto the bed where I landed face-first with a smack on the bare chest of my unexpected roommate.

Laughter, deep yet boyish, vibrated under my cheek.

“You scared the shit outta me!” the beast chuckled, wrapping his tattooed arm around my shoulders and pulling me in closer. The gesture and the warmth from his body turned my insides to goo.

“You scared the shit outta me!” I giggled, smacking him on the chest. I wanted to sit up and look at him, make sure he was real, ask him a million questions about what had happened the night before, but I couldn’t. Not yet.

As I snuggled into his side and draped my right arm over his bare torso, I inhaled and savored his masculine scent—cigarette smoke and sweat. The smell of rock and roll. I smiled against his chest and let my eyes roam over the hills and valleys of his abs, which were peeking out from under the covers. I couldn’t believe this was the same man who’d intimidated me the night before. He might look like seventy-five inches of pierced, tattooed, heavy-metal mayhem, but he was one hundred percent snuggle bunny.

On a sigh, I finally forced myself to sit up. The giant gazed up at me with soft, denim-colored eyes, rimmed in lashes so thick and black they looked like eyeliner. My heart sputtered.

“What are you doing in here?” I asked, smiling even wider and trying not to think about the hungover swamp monster I must have resembled.

“I was sleeping…until somebody sank her fuckin’ talons into my arm.” Hans looked down at his bicep. “I’m surprised I’m not bleeding.”

I laughed. “You know, for a guy with Freddy Krueger tattooed on his arm, you’re kind of a pussy.”

“I thought I was being attacked by Freddy Krueger,” Hans teased, rolling onto his side and propping his head up on his hand. “He waits until you’re asleep, you know.”

Hans’s bottom half was covered by the world’s girliest comforter, but his top half…

Drool.
