Blog Tour and Giveaway: Bad Things by R.K. Lilley

~ Synopsis ~
 
Danika hasn’t had an easy life. Being insanely attracted to bad boys has never helped make it easier.
 
One look at Tristan, and every brain cell she possessed went up in smoke. This man was trouble with a capital T. It was a given.

She knew better. Bad boys were bad. Especially for her. Considering her history, it was crazy to think otherwise. So why did crazy have to feel so damn fine?

 For as long as she could remember, Danika had been focused on the future with single-minded purpose. Tristan came along and taught her everything there was to know about letting go, and living in the present. She fell, hard and deep. Of course, that only made her impact with the ground that much more devastating.

5 Star review by Heather
 
This book is filled with raw intense emotions that takes you on an emotional rollercoaster.  It will have you stomach in knots wondering what is going to happen next.  It is one of those books that once you start reading you don't want to put down until you are finished.

Danika is a young broken hearted girl.   Her idea of fun is being a nanny and walking the dogs.  She has a problem with latching on to guys.  She is in love with being in love.  She doesn't care if it is an unhealthy relationship as long as they say they love her.  Things get difficult for her when Tristan comes into her life.  He is into partying and having a good time.  He takes her out and shows her how to have a good time. They have an instant connection.  Can they deny themselves of each other? Or will they finally give in?
  
Tristan is a hot rock star and also loves doing magic tricks.  He doesn't do relationships he does hookups.  He wants Danika from the moment he lays eyes on her, but she doesn't seem like the hookup type of girl.  So they become best friends.  Neither of them wants to cross the line.  They don't want to lose their friendship. Will he decide he can handle a relationship? Or does he convince her to be a casual fling?
 
Danika and Tristan have amazing chemistry.  I loved reading about their journey.  I cannot wait for book two!! I need more of this amazing couple.  They really intrigued me in the In Flight series.  I still have questions I can't wait to get answered.  I would recommend reading the In Flight series before this book.  Just gives you a little insight to Danika and Tristan.

~ Our Review ~
5 Star Review by Annie
OMG OMG OMG….This book went way beyond any of my previous expectations. Erin Noelle’s follow up to Metamorphosis was absolutely phenomenal. I didn’t think it was possible to fall more in love with the characters in this series, but wow was I wrong. I not only fell in love more I also found myself becoming obsessed with them. This has got to be one of the best, if not the best, love triangle books EVER! I am full on addicted to this seductive trio!
Ambrosia picks up right where we left off with Scarlett, Mason and Ash!
“Fate will find a way sweetheart. Our happily ever afters are coming.”
Eight months ago Scarlett fled from life and death, but most importantly she fled from the two guys she loves. She came back to make things right and face her problems head on. Her relationship with Mason, the sexy rock star, picks up right where it left off. Now her relationship with Ash, the typical college stud, has been plagued and she isn't sure if it can be saved. Can Scarlett finally forgive Ash and move on, or does he creep back into her life? Who do you go with the guy you love or the love of your life?
“Who knows where this is going to lead, but right here, right now, this is what we both want. So why do we need to make the past any more than it is? Leave it there; focus on right now. End of story.”
With his rock band finally getting the attention and recognition it deserves, not to mention a popular female rock manager, Mason is shocked when his “Angel” walks back into his life.
No woman has made him feel the way Scarlett does. She makes him complete and want to be
a better man, by giving up all the partying and all the nameless woman that go with it. Can Scarlett make all the demons of being a rock star go away? Or does Mason slip back into his old ways?
“I could not allow him to bream me; I would not allow him to break me. Not again.”
Broken hearted the once self-proclaimed playboy, Ash has lost all hope that his “butterfly” will return to him. She is the Eros to his Psyche. His one true love. He is bound and determined to make things right and win her back, no matter how long it takes. Can Ash fix things and win back the love of his life? Or Does Ash have to learn to watch his butterfly fly away of fly with him?
“We were made for each other, Butterfly. There is no doubt in my mind about that. I know that I have a lot to prove to you, and I plan to do that every day for the rest of my life. Whether you want to hear it or not, I am sorry for everything that happened. The very last thing in the world I want to do is cause you pain. And if you aren’t ready to accept this yet, the inevitably of us, I get that. But understand this Scarlett: it will never be goodbye not for you and me.”
I cannot say it enough, this book blew me way. I could not and did not want to put it down
for anything. Erin Noelle kicked it up a notch in the spice department in a big bold way. The
scenes were smoking hot and the men in this book were even hotter. Drool!
 
“I can’t make any promises about the future Scarlett, but I can promise you that right here, right now, I am crazy in love with you and I want to be with you ~ just you. Please stay with me.”
Like with Metamorphosis, this book is going to wag wars on whose team are you on. It will turn friends into enemies and enemies into friends. Our blog is personally going through the debate. Annie is lusting after Mason“Sex God” Templeton and Heather is head over heels in love with Ash “Pretty boy” Walker. Which team are you on?
“We are gonna fix you Butterfly. Whatever it is…we are gonna get you flying again.”
Like many others, I am personally tired of all the cliffhangers and books with no endings. I
am not going to lie this book has a minor cliffhanger, only because the story doesn’t end. Which should make me angry, right? WRONG! This does not make me angry, this make
me more excited. More excited because I know I will get more Scarlett, Mason and Ash.
I could not think of one negative in this book. NOT ONE! Which is rare, because after all my job is to pick apart the books. I would give it a million stars if possible, but I can’t so it will have do with 5 Stars!
 
~ Character Interview ~
We recently had the pleasure of sitting down with everyone's favorite trio, Ash, Mason and Scarlett.  Although the tension in the room was high we finally got some answers to the burning questions we all have.
We will start our first question off with Scarlett!!

Scarlett~ What was the hardest thing about coming back? What did you think would happen?
I knew that it would be hard facing everyone that I left, but I felt that I owed them answers.
I didn’t have any expectations really, I hoped that they would at least give the chance to explain myself.
Ash~ What was your reaction to seeing Scar come back and openly ask for Mason's forgiveness and say she couldn't forgive you? It hurt, but I understood. I knew that I had destroyed her with my bad decisions that last night she was here.
Mason~ Why didn't you just ask Scar to move to Austin with you? She had just come back
in town, had just gotten settled back at school, and I wanted to make sure that’s where I
was gonna be permanently before moving her again.
Ash~ I am loving you for not pushing yourself at Scar, but we are all curious as to why you gave Scar her space.Is there a reason you didn't relentlessly pursue Scar? I knew that
pushing myself at her would only push her away; it would be totally counter-productive. She needed to find it in herself, in her own time, when she was ready to forgive me. Also, my
main concern is her happiness, even if it means me being unhappy with the circumstances.
Mason~ I know that you love Scar and wanted to be with her, but I feel that you thought
she would always pick Ash over you and that hurt what you had with Scar.Why did you let
Ash into your head so much? I’m not a fucking idiot. Anyone can tell when they are around each other… from the first night I met her at the bar and he was there with another girl. I knew the relationship they had before he left. I just hoped she wouldn’t ever forgive him for what he did.
Ash~ Can you tell us why you let that slut into your room the day of Evie's funeral? You
never let anyone, but Scar in there. It was just a crazy day. I was emotional drained from first Evie dying, then seeing Scarlett in a catatonic state leading up to the funeral, then of course,
the funeral itself with Jess and Max and everyone… I was just exhausted and drained, and when she showed up, I didn’t feel like fighting it. I thought maybe it would provide me an escape from everything I was feeling. 
Scar~ How did you decide that Mason was the guy you wanted to have a relationship with? Was it just because of you walking in in Ash with that girl?Yeah, seeing that killed me.
Seeing her in his bed just broke me… I can’t even talk about it without getting mad.
Mason~ I know that you wanted to be with Scar so why didn't you tell Bentley no to doing
all the extra shows she booked you? Especially why didn't you try to harder to go to the bachelor/bachelorette party? It feels like you were pushing Scar away. When you’re in a
band, it’s not just yourself you have to think about. When Angel was gone, I made a promise
to my friends, my band mates, that we were going to try and do this seriously. We were trying to get a spot on that tour… that was huge!
Ash~ I know that you had some issues with your dad and that is what made you think you couldn't do relationships. What changed to make you finally think that you could have a real relationship with Scar? Seeing the strength that my mom found after leaving my dad really helped. She and I talked quite a bit about relationships, the different types of love and what
not, when all that happened, and I realized how special Scarlett was. 
Scar~ You hate nicknames, yet you keep using them. Have you decided that maybe they weren’t as bad as you thought? Yeah, I’m getting over it I guess. Like I’ve said before, some
of them are so clichĂ© like Babe, Beautiful, etc… I just feel it loses the importance.
One last question for all three of you.  What can we expect from you all in time to come? We really don’t know! Boss lady won’t tell us anything cause she knows we will go blab our mouth to you bloggers! All that she has promised us is that we will be happy in the end, so we are just accepting that for that its worth.
Thank you three so much for taking time away from school and being a rock star to sit down with us!!

Expected Release Date:  July 30, 2013
~ Teaser ~
I stand there, nervously tugging at the hem of my top when he stands and walks toward me. Pressing his body flush against mine, grabbing my hips he whispers, “Miss me already?” He’s so close I have to tilt my head to look up at him. Timidly, I slide my hands up his bare chest and around the back of his neck. With piercing eyes he stands staring down at me intently. My breathing is shallow, and nerves swarm in my belly as I gently pull him down to me.
  
Looking up at him, I close my eyes as he presses his lips to mine. Slowly he moves his lips back and forth across mine. His tongue finds the smallest opening and urges my lips apart, and his kiss becomes more intimate. I gasp as he alternates between light, gentle and intense, deep kisses. My legs shake slightly as my body is overcome by the intensity of this moment. We are both breathing erratically when he drags his lips away from mine.
  
“I should go,” I say in a hush. 
Pressing one last kiss to my lips he whispers, “I don’t want you to.” I reach behind me grasping the doorknob, “I know, but I need too.” I slip out of Gabe’s room and cross the hallway back to mine.

Blog Tour and Giveaway: The Rocker That Savors Me (The Rocker #2) by Terri Anne Browning

~ Synopsis ~
 
The Rocker That Savors Me

Layla…
…has had a hard life. On her own at a young age, always having to do what needed to be done just to survive. Now she has two other people depending on her and she needs a job fast before they get evicted. A job interview introduces her to Jesse Thornton, the delicious drummer for Demon’s Wings. He reminds her of all the mistakes of her past, but is also her hope for the future.

Jesse…
…has never let anyone in. The only real family he has ever had are his band brothers and Emmie—the only women he has ever loved. But then Layla comes into his life and he would do just about anything to get one taste. Can he move past his own insecurities and allow this woman into his heart?

~ Our Review ~
4 Star Review by Annie
 
The Rocker That Savors Me was a fast-paced steamfest.  Wow this book draws you in and has you craving for more.
Layla has had to group up really fast, and now at 25 she is the sole provider for her two sisters. Needing money she unknowingly applies for a job that puts her in daily contact with Jesse Thorton, the smoking hot drummer for Demon Wings.  She has one rule in life, and that is to stay away from rockers. So why is it that she can’t stop fantasizing about him?
The only girl Jesse Thorton has ever loved was Emmie, but now Emmie is all grown up and in love with Jesse’s best friend. Jesse thought that he would never find the one girl to that makes him want anything more than a one night stand until he first heard Layla laugh. Her laugh, her smile and her body all screamed goddess and he could not get her out of his system.
I was hooked on this series since book one, but The Rocker That Savors Me blew it out of the water. I loved how this book ties into the first book and it continued to tell the story of all the other band members. I just can’t seem to get enough of this series and the rock gods that are in it. I cannot wait to see what Terri Anne Browning has in store of us next when we get Drake’s story.
