Blog Tour: Camden's Redemption by L.P. Dover

~ Synopsis ~

For so long, UFC Middleweight fighter, Camden Jameson lived in his twin brother’s shadow, competing to be the best. When he lost his way, he turned to the Dark Side and did some unforgiveable things. After his betrayal, he tried to earn his redemption, but it wasn’t enough. Now his whole world has fallen apart and he’s on the run from those who want him dead. But he’s not alone.
Undercover agent, Brooklyn Avery, has been assigned to Camden’s case, to watch and protect him. For months, she’s been in the shadows, keeping her distance. All of that changes when the mission takes a dangerous turn and she needs to get closer to protect him. Their love is forbidden, but once they see past each other’s scars, they realize they have what it takes to heal the other. Unfortunately, Camden still has a price to pay for his sins.
Lives will be lost, some will be damaged, and a dark, hidden secret will be revealed. In the end, Camden finally learns what it means to put everything on the line for love, even if it costs him.

5 Stars 

Another amazing read in the Gloves Off series.  I love these books.  Some of my favorite reads.

Camden is on the run from Scar.  Even though Scar is in prison he has people hunting dow Camden.  He is finally hitting his rock bottom and wants to be back home.  He's tired of running.  But once he runs into Brooklyn he wants to know her.  He has never been one to chase woman, but there is something about her that makes him want to know her.  Can he finally let himself be happy?  Or does he think he isn't redeemable?

Brooklyn doesn't like Camden when she first starts trailing him.  She doesn't like the person he was, but once she's following him for awhile she sees a different side to him.  She wasn't supposed to meet him, but plans change and once she does she doesn't know how she's going to stay away.  Can she show him he is worthy of love?  Or will she lose him?

This book was really well written.  Camden has a lot to deal with and work through.  I didn't really like him in Ryley's book, but he started to really grow on me in Gabby and Pax book. I really liked how he developed as a character.  I cannot wait for the last book on this series.  I am intrigued to see where she takes Kyle's book.

5 Stars by Brittany 

I don't know how she does it, but LP Dover has managed to capture my attention and continues to give readers another amazing story. Camden's Redemption is the next book in her Gloves Off series.

This is about Camden who has a very dark past. He used to be part of an underground fighting club called the Dark Side. He was jealous of his brother and destroyed their relationship. Now he's in the run because he turned the leader of the Dark Side over to the authorities and helped bring down the fighting ring.

Brooklyn is the undercover agent who is watching him from afar. That is until her boss insists she get to know Camden better and show him around town. But Brooklyn has a past of her own. Will they be able to become friends? If so, at what cost?

This story has a whole lot of forgiveness, love, and a little bit of heart pounding betrayal. I can't say enough good things about the entire series. I have loved each and every story and I can say that each one is unique in it's own way. Once I started this book I couldn't walk away from it and I can't wait to see what's next.

~ Excerpt ~

Pressing his forehead to mine, he closed his eyes and squeezed them tight. “How can you love me?” he asked, his voice gruff. “I do fucked up things that hurt the people closest to me. I can’t promise you that’ll change.”
“No, but you can promise me you’ll try. That’s good enough for me.”
His heated gaze landed on mine, his breaths deep and raspy. The raw energy radiating from him made me tremble in anticipation. “You just fucked up, buttercup,” he growled low. Lifting me in his arms, he carried me off the dock and laid me down on the grass, his body hard on top of mine.
“Why is that?” I whispered. He pushed his cock against me and I moaned, desperately aching to feel him inside me.
“You have awakened something I never knew existed. It rips at my soul and scares the fuck out of me, yet it also makes me feel alive. I don’t want to let it go. I don’t want to let you go.” Lowering his head, he kissed my cheek and trailed his lips down to my neck.
“What are you saying?” I asked.
He brushed his thumb across my lips and lifted his head. “I don’t know if what I feel is love. I’ve never had it before. But goddamn, it sure does feel like it. Whatever happens between us, I can’t let it end. Tell me you don’t want it to.”

            I moaned as he lifted my tank top and bra and tossed them to the ground. “I want us to be together, Camden. We don’t know what’s going to happen once everything’s over, but I can promise you my love will not change . . . even when you go back home.”

4.5 Stars 

This was a really good book.  I loved the characters and can't wait to read more of them all.

Casey is trying to figure out what is wrong with her.  She doesn't understand why relationships don't work for her. She has been told she is too controlling.  She wants to learn to not be so demanding and controlling.  So who better to ask than your best guy friend.  He can help you.  But can they keep their feelings straight?  Or will feelings become crossed and friendships lost?

Nate has always been attracted to Casey, but he never did anything about it because he valued their friendship more.  He also has a thing with commitment after his ex broke him.  He is content with his life and happy to have Casey any way he can.  He doesn't know if he can help Casey, but he thinks it is a great way for him to finally get her out of his system without her knowing that he has been lusting after her for years.  But can he keep his feelings straight?  Or will he end up falling for her and pushing her away because he doesn't do love.

This was a great love story.  I love how it was done.  It didn't have all the unnecessary drama that some stories have.  I really can't wait to read about Brent and his girl next.

Message from Lauren

I'm so thrilled that the Seductive Nights erotic romance series is continuing with a new installment starring a new couple! This series has been such a joy to write since it started as a fan-driven series, with Julia and Clay, and then Jack and Michelle, and now this this new novel is about Nate and Casey. Readers requested that I write their story next, so I did! FORBIDDEN NIGHTS can be read without having read the earlier books. (Though, why wouldn't you want to meet the other couples?!) I can't wait to introduce readers to Nate Harper and Casey Sullivan. They’re a dynamic duo and many early readers are saying this is their favorite story yet! Nate knows exactly who, and what he wants, and is thrilled when the opportunity he’s dreamed about for years presents herself to him. Expect many steamy encounters between these two!

Release Day Blitz: Point of Surrender by Stacey Lynn


Point of Surrender (Nordic Lords MC, #4)
Stacey Lynn
Release Date: February 10, 2015


~ Blurb ~ 

Debt. Guilt. Death. Finn Walker has spent years carrying the weight of his regret and guilt with him wherever he went. When he found his home with the Nordic Lords Motorcycle Club, he quickly learned their outlaw lifestyle allowed him to banish his guilt with his fists and guns and no one would stop him. It was freeing, and now, he fits right in. Friends with Ryker Knight for years, Meg McNeery turns to the one place she knows is safe when she needs safety more than her next paycheck. On the run from a man determined to receive payment for a debt he believes Meg owes, she knows the Nordic Lords Clubhouse in Minnesota is the only place where she and her five-year-old son, Brayden, will be safe. What Meg doesn’t expect is her instant, magnetic attraction to Finn. And when her running ends with the three of them trapped together…it not only tests Meg’s physical self-control, but it also causes Finn to face his demons. Finn has sworn he’d never get involved with another woman again, much less a woman with a child, but he can’t stop thinking about Meg, the blue-eyed angel who silences his nightmares. When Finn’s past fears and present threats collide…will he finally be able to save the woman who needs him? Or will Meg end up like his ex, Piper? 
Buried six feet under.

~ Review ~
4 Stars 

This book was suppose to be my favorite. I have loved Finn since we met him in book one, but there was just something lacking in this book.  I can't say what because I don't really know.  It didn't have that magic that makes you want to devour the book in one sitting.

Meg is on the run.  Ryker's the only one she knows who can help her, but he's also going to be angry she's hid this secret from him for years.  She is finally willing to ask for help, but she doesn't exactly know what to expect from bikers.  Will she feel safe around them?  Can she get over the fact that some of the stuff they do is illegal?  What will she do when she falls for Finn, the guy Ryker has guarding her?  

Finn is trying to run from his past.  He doesn't like to talk about his past and no one knows about it and that's how he wants to keep it.  But when Meg walks into his life he knows that keeping away from her is going to be hard.  He doesn't deserve anyone so how can he get Meg out of his system without breaking her.  Can he finally come to terms with the past and let someone in?  Or will he sabotage a good thing with Meg? 

This is the final book in the Nordic Lords series :(  I am sad to see the end of all these characters.  This was a really fun series to read and I can't to see what Stacey Lynn has for us next!!

**Bound by custom or unique by choice.**

There's something about the written word that's pure magic.

Possibly it's the fact that there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering that they're able to change our lives.

How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?

I like to think of myself as 'unique'. My stories aren't for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be 'normal'.

Normal is subjective.

I prefer to be known as a person who's never been 'bound by custom' but is 'unique by choice'.

Until next time

Blog Tour and Giveaway: Ember by Rachel Van Dyken

~ Synopsis ~

I am a Killer. A Rapist. A Monster.
I know only pain and survival.
That is until the Cappo's sister walked into my life.
And changed everything.
She's a light who makes my darkness darker, her smile makes my heart turn to ice, and I can't escape the fear her seductive looks instill--knowing it's only a matter of time before I fail--again, and take her for myself.
This is the story of my redemption.
But it's not pretty...I died, and now I'm alive, but not living, breathing but not surviving. I am Phoenix De Lange, son to a murdered mob boss, estranged brother, horrible friend, monster in the making, newest leader to one of the most powerful families in the Cosa Nostra.
And I will have my vengeance.
Or die trying.
I am Phoenix De Lange.
Death is all I know.
Until she offers me a piece of life--I can't resist taking.

5 Stars by Heather 

I loved this book.  I was excited to read about Phoenix and how he would be redeemed.  I loved all the stuff Bee did to him.  Especially in front of the guys.  She was a fun character to read!!

Bee just wants to fit in and be loved.  She never got that love from her dad and she doesn't really know he brother Tex.  She's grown attached to Phoenix since he is her guard.  She wants him to see her as a woman and not just a job.  Can she make him come out of his shell and live again?

Phoenix is just going through the motions of life.  He doesn't believe he should have lived when Luca died.  He wishes it was him instead.  He is afraid of Bee.  He doesn't want to ruin her like he does with everything else good he touches.  He is determined to push her away no matter what the cost.  But once she infiltrates his barriers it is harder to keep her out.  Will he succeed in pushing her away?  Or will he fall for the Cappo's sister?

This book was fun in places and heartbreaking in others.  You really can't help but feel bad for Phoenix and everything he did.  Though some won't agree with that.  I'm happy he had Bee and she was willing to look past his past and see the man he was trying to be.  This is another amazing read by Rachel Van Dyken!!  Can't wait for the next book.

5 Stars by Guest Reviewer Brittany 

Rachel has done it again! The newest addition to the Eagle Elite series involves Phoenix and Bee. Phoenix is a dark man. He was a monster in the past because of the things his father forced him to do.

Bee is the girl who believes people can change. She thinks that Phoenix is a better person than he gives himself credit for. She pushes him to be better. But the question is, did he change? Or is history doomed to repeat itself?

I loved this story. I enjoyed Bee's quick wit and the banter between her and Phoenix. My heart was broken for the man Phoenix has become and it broke because it felt like no one believed in him, including those who said they were family. I laughed out loud in several places because Bee's mouth would start running. This is a perfect story and one of my favorite in the series. If you haven't read the Eagle Elite series, I would start at the beginning. There is much more to this book when you read from the beginning of the series.

~ Excerpt ~

“Do it,” my father spat. “Or I will.”
I looked at the girl at my feet and back at my father. “No.”
He lifted his hand above my head; I knew what was coming, knew it would hurt like hell but had no way to fight back — he’d already starved me of my food for the past three days for arguing, for trying to save the girl and her cousin.
His fist hit my temple so hard that I fell to the ground with a cry. The click of his boots against the cement gave me the only warning I’d have as he reared back and kicked me in the ribs; over and over again he kicked. The girl screamed, but I stayed silent. Screaming didn’t help; nothing did.
I waited until he was done — I prayed that he would kill me this time. I prayed so hard that I was convinced God was finally going to hear me and take me away from my hell. Anything was better than living. Anything.
“You worthless—” Another kick to the head. “—piece of shit!” A kick to my gut. “You will never be boss, not if you cry every time you must do the hard thing!” Finally, blessed darkness enveloped my line of vision.
I woke up from the nightmare screaming, not even realizing that I was safe, in my own bed. With a curse I checked the clock.
Three a.m.
Well, at least I’d only had one nightmare — that I’d remembered. I’d been living with Sergio for the past week; his house was so big that I’d basically taken the east wing, and he’d taken the West, said he’d hated living alone anyway. I wasn’t stupid; I knew the guy wasn’t exactly a big fan, but it worked. I needed to stay in the States while I figured shit out.
And I wasn’t ready to leave. Not when I needed to learn all I could from Nixon. Not when I had responsibility.
And not when I had those black folders freaking burning a hole in my mind.
Luca hadn’t just left me an empire; he’d left me secrets. I wasn’t sure what was worse, knowing everything there was to know about those I was supposed to be protecting or knowing that at any minute one of them could turn on us.
“Hey!” Bee barged into my room.
“Damn it!” I pulled the blankets over my naked body, my heart picking up speed at her tousled hair and bedroom eyes. Tex’s sister, Tex’s sister. My body wasn’t accepting that — physically it wasn’t accepting any information other than she was beautiful.
And it was dark.
I looked away, scowling.
“I heard screaming.” Bee took a step forward, her perfume floating off her body like an aphrodisiac or drug, making me calm, making me want something I had no business wanting.
“Yeah, well…” I gave her a cold glance. “…clearly I’m fine, so you should go. Actually, why are you here? You know you live with Tex, right?”
She shrugged and sat on my bed. I clenched my fists around the blankets to keep from reaching out to her. It was getting harder and harder to ignore her warmth — when I lived in a constant state of near-death cold.
“He’s with Mo, and they need privacy. I’m not stupid. So I asked Sergio if I could move in for a while.”
“You did what?” I asked in a deadly tone, one I was sure would probably give her nightmares later.
She grinned. “I’m your new roomie!” Bee bounced on the bed and sent me a shy look from beneath her dark lashes. “Admit it, you miss our slumber parties.”
Forget the nightmare — I was looking at it.
