Blog Tour and Giveaway: The Wingman Chronicles by James Holeva

~ Synopsis ~
James Holeva, aka "The Wingman," is as classy as he is crass. His life is a dirty ride of uncouth adventures involving weddings, proms, threesomes, soccer moms, models, strippers, balconies, bedrooms, backseats and bathroom stalls. No details are spared in this humorous, erotic, autobiographical novel depicting all of his hedonistic debauchery. Full of jaw-dropping moments, gut-busting laughs and multiple orgasms, "The Wingman Chronicles" will make you laugh and orgasm at the same time.

~ Our Review ~
4.5 Star Review by Annie
“I’m a high class player with the swagger and style of an old-school gentleman.” 
First and foremost, let me just say that this book is no child’s play and is not for the faint of heart. It is full with hardcore, raw and sometimes downright disturbing sexual encounters. It will leave you blushing, laughing and cringing all the way through.
“Not to brag, but I eat box like a lesbian pornstar.”
This is the collection of sexual encounters told from the player of all players, James “The Wingman” Holeva. Any lady with sexy legs and a nice rack is not safe around him, whether it be the girl next door, a prom queen wannabe or even a cousin. I know, I know! Kind of sick right? This man has no shame and is willing to lie, steal and cheat just to get his next lay. Although I know he is a bit of a sleazy foul mouthed arrogant prick, I can’t help but falling into his trap myself. I wanted to get to know him better. Even though I knew I was falling right into a trap. James has a way with words and can talk any women into anything, not to mention his hard-eight!

“Dinner, dancing, drinks, conversation, connecting, fucking, post-sex pillow talk, a good cuddle, maybe another round…but then it’s time to go." 
This book started off with a bang! There was no romance or foreplay it was just straight up dirty sex. I was constantly looking over my shoulder making sure no one could see what I was reading. This book will make you glad for reading devices and the privacy they give you.
“To creep or not to creep at a funeral?”
James gives us a look into a guy’s mind. Although it wasn’t exactly what I wanted to know, it was what I needed to know. I started to feel bad for some of the women, but they knew what they were getting into.  
I really did enjoy this book. It was very entertaining to say the least. This was not a 5 star book, because some scenes are just too over the top. I would recommend this book, but only to those who can handle a whole lot of raunchy sexy dirtiness.

He's currently working on putting together a film based on "The Wingman Chronicles," as well as has plans to record a standup comedy DVD, and tour abroad. His meet and greet/book signings are as crazy as his shows as he usually signs as many boobs as he does books, and asses too of course.

~ Excerpt ~
Erin woke up in slow degrees. Awareness tugged at her like a gentle tide. Arousal lapped gently at her skin. She had been in a deep slumber, both sated and sore, but she came alive again under his touch.
Blake. Sighing, she might have said his name aloud. Or maybe just in her mind. They were attuned now, so soon after sex, after being wrapped up in each other, cocooned in sleep. Past the point of discussions, negotiations, they’d been stripped to the core. Him, her, and the pleasure they could invoke together.
Calloused fingers roamed over her hips and lower, lower, to where her curls were still damp from their earlier sex. She peeked her eye open at the windows. A faint eerie light glowed against the curtains, heralding late twilight, the dead of night. He was insatiable really. Last night, then now. Then they’d probably do it again in the morning most likely. She loved it.
When his fingers slipped inside the wetness pooling between her legs, she moaned.
“Shh,” he murmured. “I didn’t mean to wake you.”
Liar. A lazy smile curled her lips. “Is that right?”
He found her clit and pinched. His breath was hot at the back of her neck, his erection pressing urgently against her back. “But now that you’re up…”
“You have plans for me.” Delicious plans. They always were.
“You don’t have to do a thing,” he murmured, rolling her onto her back. He nuzzled his way between the valley of her breasts, across her belly and settled in between her legs. Her knees splayed wide, her whole body spread open to him, encouraged by anticipation and the laxity of sleep.
She’d been given oral sex before, but never by someone as dedicated as Blake. He enjoyed himself there almost as much as he enjoyed regular sex—maybe more. He could make her come endless times, until she was throbbing and restless, until she had to beg him to come inside her.
God, she loved it.

Blog Tour and Giveaway: This Heart of Mine by Amanda Bennett

~ Synopsis ~
Kayla seems to have it all. She has a wonderful man who would go to the ends of the earth for her and a family that seems to support her regardless of the consequences.
But is it enough to help her face her demons and to truly find happiness within her heart?

Madison never thought he would be faced with so many life altering decisions at such a young age. he wants to do right by Kayla and his family, but when old wounds reopen he finds himself questioning every choice he has ever made.

Life isn't all it seems for these two and they're coming to the realization that there will always be someone wanting to come along and destroy it all.

Will following her heart prove to be the right decision, or will it be the one thing that could make the only man she's ever loved, say good-bye for good?

~ Our Review ~
4 Star Review by Annie
This Heart of Mine is filled with drama, heartbreak and finally the happily ever after moment I have been looking forward to all along. This is the last installment of the Raine series and the final journey we get to share with Kayla and Madison.
The last book left off where we discovered Kayla was pregnant and Madison was dealing with the death of his grandfather.
In This Heart of Mine Kayla struggles with telling Madison about the baby, while on the other hand Madison is having a hard time finding a way to tell Kayla about the new visitor in town. They both struggle with being open and honest with each other. By keeping these secrets they feel like they are protecting each other from heartache and pain. That is where they are wrong.
When the past, present and future collide Kayla and Madison have to find a way to make it work. If not only for them, at least for the little baby they are going to bring into this world.
This series has really captured my heart and I am sad to see it come to an end. I loved the journey that Kalya and Madison took us on.  Although at moments it was a wild jaw dropping ride that was full of twists after twists and turns after turns I would not change a single thing about it.

My Savior Forever Blog Tour and Giveaway

~ Synopsis ~

‘With all my heart,
With every inch of my Soul,
With every breath I take,
I promise to love you forever’
Cassie can’t remember being loved, being wanted. At a young age she was placed in Foster care that moved her around from one place to the other. Finally being freed at 18, she was left with no money and nowhere to go until she finds a small town in Kansas where she can start over.

Little did she know her life was going to be uprooted again when she is kidnapped and brutally raped.

Jesse is considered HOT in most women’s eyes, but has little time for Romance. While searching for his Mother’s killers, he witnesses a young girl being kidnapped. He now faces decisions that he must make quickly.

Will Jesse rescue Cassie? Will Cassie ever find the happiness she longs for?

*Due to a graphic rape scene, strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

 ~ Excerpt ~
 Jesse pulls me in an embrace. “Baby, you take all the time you need. I know you have been through so much. You’re so brave.” He pushes me back a little and stares into my eyes. “Do you know how brave you are?” I shyly shake my head. He pulls me back and holds me again. “Oh, baby. After all you have been through in your life. I think you’re the bravest person I know.” Tears form in my eyes. I don’t feel very brave.

Full name: Cassie Ann Morelli

Born: June 6th

Astrological Sign: Gemini

Stats: 5’ 6”, 110 lbs., strawberry blonde hair, light green eyes that look light blue

Favorite food: Crab Legs

Favorite music: Classic Rock

Favorite pastime:  reading romance, snuggling with my Jesse

Biggest Regret: not having a normal life in my younger years, more time with my parents

Sweetest Moment: Jesse surprising me with a Romantic dinner. The Restaurant atmosphere with the flowers, lit candles and the sweetest note. The gorgeous man looking into my eyes with love.

Most Romanic Moment: There’s so many! The way Jesse purposed. Such a Romantic. His face as he spoke, his actions. It all took my breath away. And, walking down the aisle to Jesse. The look on his face was so full of love for me. For me! I couldn’t believe he actually loves me.

Cassie, you’ve had such a hard life growing up. What kept you going? What kept you sane?
One word. Survival. My parents were gone and I know they would want me to go on, be the best I could be. I definitely couldn’t do that being in all those foster families. None of them would give me the support or love to do that. So, when I finally got my freedom I had to push myself to get a job and try to do something with my life.
It’s unfathomable to me being kidnapped and raped. What was going through your mind?
Wow! Well, other than the fear, I couldn’t believe that was happening to me. I can’t explain the horror and pain that it was. No one should ever have to go through that. No one should be allowed to do that to another person. It was beyond disgusting and horrible.
On a lighter note, Cassie, you seem to have attracted the attention and love from the man who rescued you. How are you feeling now?
That, I can describe! (She giggles) Jesse is amazing! Not only is he the hottest guy I have ever seen but so full of love, caring and what a Romantic! I swoon just thinking about him. Thank, God, he is the one who rescued me. When he came into the room at first I was scared because I thought it was just another man coming to have his way with me. But he helped me. He was so tender and loving. He didn’t even know me. Once he got me out and I got to see him in the light, I could have fainted! I couldn’t believe how beautiful he was. And he never ever acted like he was put out taking care of me. He wanted to. He is truly my Savior Forever. 

Jesse Michael Richard
Born: January 15th
Astrological Sign: Aquarius
Stats: 5’ 11”, 172 lbs., dark blonde hair with natural blonde highlights, blue eyes
Favorite food: Mexican
Favorite music: Classic Rock
Favorite pastime:  running, working out, taking a stroll hand in hand with my Cassie, snuggling with Cassie
Biggest Regret: not being there when my Mother was killed. Maybe I could have stopped them. Not being able to get Cassie out of that house before they hurt her. It killed me to have to sit outside in my truck waiting for the right time to go in after her. I hated what I saw when I finally did.
Sweetest Moment: marrying Cassie. Seeing her walk down the aisle to me and the look on her face made my heart beat out of my chest.
Most Romanic Moment: When I prepared a Romantic dinner for her in celebration. I love doing that! The look on her face was priceless. She was so shocked but in her eyes was the love for me that hit me like a freight train. I fell in love with her all over again.  
Jesse, I can’t imagine how hard it was for you, chasing after your Mother’s killers for two years. Wasn’t it hard being out there by yourself and weren’t you afraid of being killed?
It was extremely hard being away from my family and friends. I missed them terribly and I know it was hard on them too. I know I put them through a lot. But, I had to do it, for her. She deserved to have them caught and put away. No one else was willing to do that. I guess deep down I was a little nervous of being killed but I had to take that chance.
I hear that you are a hopeless Romantic. What goes through your mind when trying to impress a woman?
(Jesse laughs)Well, when I fall, I fall hard. I want to take care of her and give her everything her heart desires. Most woman, or so I’ve heard (chuckle), love the flowers, pampering, candle light and so on. I guess I have a great imagination when trying to come up with things to woo them. What can I say? (He smiles and shrugs)
What where your first thoughts as you entered the room and found Cassie?
It was so dark in the room that I had to use my flashlight.  I cringed as I moved the light up her body. Seeing her tied to the bed that way, the bruises, marks in her flesh and her face. Damn, her face. Bruised and her left eye swollen shut. I wanted to go after them right then and kill them. Beating them to a pulp first like they did to her. I’m not a violent man but my rage was extreme as I saw what they had done to her. (He leans forward in his seat, putting his elbows on his legs to get closer). But, wow! I think I was knocked over by her beauty. She stunned me. Right then, I knew I had to get to know her better. I had to have her. I can’t explain it.

Cover Reveal: Precious Consequences by Tamsyn Bester

~ Synopsis ~

All it took was one night to change the rest of my life.
One night that created irrevocable consequences.

But some consequences aren’t all bad.
They can be amazing…beautiful…Precious.

I willingly accepted those consequences and wrote a new plan for my life. But that plan didn’t include Cameron Argent  –  the sexy-as-sin tattooed  playboy who got under my skin the moment I laid eyes on him. I was headed down a dark and dangerous road where he was concerned and in the end, our relationship was inevitable. Despite our dark secrets, our feelings for each other burned brighter than a thousand stars and left us both naked, vulnerable.
But when my past came rolling back into my life like a Summer storm, I wasn’t sure if his love for me was enough.
Was he prepared to deal with the consequences of a past I couldn’t regret or would he walk away with my beating heart in his hands?

~ Excerpt ~

I couldn't pretend that my life hadn't changed. But I also couldn't bring myself to regret the irrevocable consequences that forever changed me.
I learned the true meaning of selflessness and what it meant to love someone so much, you'd give up everything for them. I finally understood what it meant to sacrifice your own heart, just to allow another to beat.

One night.
One stupid decision.

And the most precious of consequences.

Blog Tour and Giveaway: Emerge by S.E. Hall

~ Synopsis ~
Laney Walker is a quick witted, athletic, southern tomboy who lets few get too close, using her sarcastic zingers to deflect. She also has no idea how others view her, Evan having protected and coveted her since they were children. But college puts a gap between Laney and Evan that neither of them were prepared for- old relationships are tested, new ones are formed and nothing will ever be the same.
Especially when in walks one Dane Kendrick, not at all the familiar, southern charmer of home, but an animal all his own.
More than, and not just, a love triangle; a story of growing up, friendship, loyalty, first love, primal love...and life.
~ Our Review ~
5 Star review by Heather
OMG OMG OMG I didn't realize that this book was going to be a love triangle when I started
reading it!  These are one of my favorite types of books to read. This book was ah-mazing. It
had my stomach in knots and wanting to knock some sense into them.
Laney is a Tom boy. She was raised by her single father and grew up playing softball and
going fishing. She had no interest in boys. She focused on playing ball and getting into the
same college as her best friend Evan. That was their dream to always be together. When she
doesn't hear from UGA she has to make plans for another college. They don't anticipate how
hard it is to  be apart. Layne isn't use to being alone, but soon makes friends with her roommate
and a group she meets during the Hall Crawl(a college ritual where all the girls go to the guys rooms and meet them). She instantly has a connection with Dane, and that scares her because it has never happened before. Does she love Evan or is she in love with Evan? Can she give Dane a chance and still be best friends with Evan?

Evan is a football star. He has been best friends with Layne for years. He has always wanted her,
 but didn't want to ruin their friendship. One night their senior year of high school he finally opens
up and tells her and they finally start dating. He doesn't want to go to college without her, but she tells him to go because she doesn't want him to give up his dream for her. He goes away and starts partying and drinking a lot. He knows that he loves Layne, but he hides that he is partying all the time.  Afraid that she will know that her fears were right.  Can he save his relationship with Layne? Or does he ruin it?

Dane is a very closed off secret person. He instantly wants to know all about the quirky girl go walks into his brother’s dorm room for the Hall Crawl. He knows she is shy, but behind that he can see the fire that she hides. Can he be the man for her? Can he finally open up to her?

This book was absolutely amazing. I love a good love triangle. I wanted to throw my kindle at the end though. It ended at a very bad spot. I want more answers and I can't wait for book two!!! SE
Hall I love that you drew me into this book and made me feel like I was living it!! Well done this book is definitely worth reading.
