Crash Burn Sting by Alora Kate

Crash
Burn
Sting

Three very powerful words when used separately. In Alora Kate’s new book of the same name, they take on a whole new meaning. It’s a ways into the book before you find out the meaning, but it’s an “Aha” moment. A life lesson, so to speak. I’ve read every one of Alora’s books, and she just keeps getting better and better. Crash Burn Sting is her first paranormal endeavor, and it is absolutely fantastic!  It’s unlike anything I’ve ever read in the paranormal genre, and I’ve read a lot of paranormal!

Synopsis

Heaven. Hell.
Good. Evil.
What do you believe in?
Who do you believe in?
The best day of my sad, pathetic life was the day I died.
I’m not a good person.
I want the name Rawson Lorde and all that goes with it to be forgotten on Earth. I deserve to rot in hell and reflect on my own choices for the rest of eternity.
I don’t deserve a happily ever after.
I don’t deserve to be in Heaven.
I don’t deserve a second chance at happiness.
So, imagine my surprise when I find God and the Devil himself fighting over my soul.
They send me back to Earth with Oath, my Guardian Angel (and enormous pain in the ass), to complete some impossible tasks.
I’ve been given a second chance.
A second chance that won’t make a difference.
A second chance I don’t want.
This is a full-length, standalone light Paranormal read with a dash of romance.

Review

It’s going to be nearly impossible to review this book without giving spoilers. I don’t do spoilers, so I’m giving it my best go.

Rawson Lorde is absolutely one of my favorite misunderstood villains ever. He has a mouth ten times worse than a sailor, has done some questionable things, but makes you feel like there really is a heart somewhere very, very deep in there somewhere. As a reader, he made me laugh at probably the wrong times, but when he made made me sad, it was pretty gut-wrenching.

IMG_1544

He’s sent back to Earth by God with the worst job ever. An absolutely hysterical, impossible job for a guy like Rawson Lorde. Of course there’s a girl, and they have a major connection, but remember…dead guy.IMG_1645

The ending totally ripped my heart out, then in the next second I was laughing through my tears.

IMG_1541

Alora Kate continuously to branch out in different genres and kills it every time.  She’ll rip the heart strings super hard, then slowly release them, for the ultimate “all the feels” emotions.

Cover Reveal – My Best Friend’s Ex by Meghan Quinn

SBPRBanner-MyBestFriendsEX-CR.jpg

My Best Friend’s Ex, an all new sexy, laugh out loud romantic comedy is coming June 1st!

MyBestFriendsEx

My Best Friend’s Ex by Meghan Quinn
Publication Date: June 1st, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Photographer: Neil Danvers

When I found an eviction notice taped on my apartment door, I had two options: find a comfortable cardboard box to call home, or move in with Tucker Jameson.

Seeing that cardboard makes me feel itchy, I chose the latter. Which shouldn’t be that big of a deal since Tucker is one of my good friends. And because he’s still pining after his ex-girlfriend and I’m trying to finish my nursing degree, there is nothing to worry about in the romance department, making my last semester an easy one to conquer.

Boy, was I wrong.

Rules are set, dinners are made, conversations are had, and a shirtless, swoony roommate walks around in nothing but a pair of black briefs, ruining me for every other man.

Before I know it, I turn into a panting, lust-filled woman begging for Tucker to kiss me, touch me, and show me exactly what is hiding under those briefs.

But with great orgasms, comes great consequences.

Tucker might be my friend and roommate but he’s also my best friend’s ex-boyfriend, making him completely off-limits. At least that’s what my brain is telling me, my heart is speaking an entirely different language.

About the Author:

A BLONDE AT HEART

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

​Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Teaser Tuesday – Out of the Ashes by LA Casey

☄✨Teaser Timel✨☄
LA Casey brings her readers OUT OF THE ASHES — the first Sci Fi Romance book in a new series of sexy standalone novels. These other world alphas are looking for their perfect mates that can bring them to their knees… and human women fit their criteria perfectly.

IMG_1532

SYNOPSIS:
For Nova, a twenty-three-year-old survivalist, wandering a barren wasteland was a lonely existence. But her day-to-day life was about to drastically change forever. Gone were the days when her only worries were rabid animals, augmented humans, the unforgiving scorching sun, and rogue watchmen. Now, Nova found herself faced with a new threat, and he was tall, grey, and horribly stubborn.

For Kol, a two-hundred-year-old daredevil, sailing the never-ending waves of deep space was a vast and thrilling life to lead. He had one objective on Earth—rescue as many human females as possible and return them to his home planet. It was supposed to be simple, but no one told Kol that a human female’s tongue could slice a male like a blade. His charge was short, strikingly attractive, and she talked way too much.

Nova wasn’t going to be kidnapped without putting up a fight, but Kol was more than ready to go toe to toe with her. These two species set out on a collision course that would redefine the phrase “The Big Bang” forever.

The Freefall Series by Astrid V. Tallaksen

IMG_1506

I’m finally keeping a promise almost nine months late.  I met Astrid Tallaksen at Penned Con last year.  I gave her my card, but never made it back around to her booth to get her books.  Luckily, she contacted me and was kind enough to give me The Freefall Series for a review.  It may have taken me too long to get this series, but once I put everything aside and devoted the proper time to read, starting over for the fourth time, I read a book a day.

This Urban Fantasy series with fallen angels, determined to protect humanity’s free will, demons in the Abyss and the archangels from Heaven just as determined to see humanity end, is a new take on the UF genre that I completely enjoyed.  My suggestion would be to not be like me and wait to read this series, but grab it up right now!

Book 1 is At Death’s Door”, and if the gorgeous cover doesn’t suck you in, the first line will.  “Apparently having conversations with dead people make you crazy.”  

Book 1

IMG_1507

Synopsis

The world is a pretty straightforward place.  Even for medium Sara Stone things seem pretty simple, aside from the whole talking to spirits bit.  But when the spirits get too hard to handle and Sara ends up admitted to a mental hospital, the world starts to seem a whole lot less straightforward.  First, her family disappears, including her four year old son.  Then she gets the sneaking suspicion that not only are the staff at the mental hospital somehow connected, but the also have no intention of ever letting her leave the hospital.

Everything changes when Sara has her first visitor in three months.  Daniel is handsome, friendly, and a complete stranger.  When he promises to spring her from the hospital and swears that everything she’s experienced is completely real, Sara has no choice but to believe him.  But once she reaches a run-down Victorian house in the tiny Alabama town her rescuer calls home, the last thing she expects to discover is that every memory she has is a lie.

Daniel reveals a world filled with angels, demons, and an impending war humans know nothing about.  Sara wants to ignore her role in the whole mess – all that matters is solving the mystery of where her son has gone.  But the forces of Heaven, Hell and the Heart have other plans for her.  Can she find her child before the world comes crashing down?

Book 2

IMG_1508

Synopsis

Being a fallen angel used to be easy.  A quiet life with the people she loves is all Sara ever asked for.  Unfortunately, the apocalypse didn’t get the message.  After nearly losing almost everything, she’s managed to put her life back together and start living what she hoped was happily ever after with her small family.  Now she wants nothing more than to hide away and pretend the end of the world is a distant rumor.  Her life has already been torn apart once.  Doesn’t she deserve a break?

The apocalypse finds its way back to her doorstep when a letter arrives.  Is it a friendly warning, a dire threat, or a simple reminder that she can’t run away from what’s to come?  Sara refuses to take heed and pays dearly for her avoidance.  With her family in danger and the preservation of free will hanging in the balance , she finds herself with no other choice.  Sara must follow the path forged for her, a path that may take away everything she holds dear and leave her in pieces at the end.  She’s caught between Heaven and Hell, and the last person she’d ever have considered trusting might just be her greatest ally.

Book 3

IMG_1509

Synopsis

After her son is taken from her by the Host, and she loses the love of her life, Sara is trying to sort out what little she has left.  Heaven thinks she’s dead for the moment, but as soon as they discover she’s alive, they’ll be coming for her.  With Lu, a Prince of Hell by her side, Hell has temporarily marked her name off the list.  Should they find out she’s a champion for humans, the demons won’t think fondly of her.  If only those were her only problems.  The world is getting bad, and fast.

Sara has to reach her son or he’ll destroy the earth by bringing about the Apocalypse.  The problem is, Danny’s no longer Danny.  Brainwashed by Heaven, he believes he has to atone for his existence as the child of an angel and a demon.  To bring a halt to the end of the world, Sara is gathering an Army.  One by one the pieces fall into place as a ragtag band of rebels comes together under the Angel of Death’s guidance.  She has to stop Heaven from eradicating the human race, and Hell from enslaving it.  The fight for free will has never been so dire.  The world is on fire, and only Sara can save it.

Review

It’s really hard for me to believe that The Freefall Series is Ms. Tallaksen’s debut.  While the series is loosely based on Biblical prophesy, with Heaven’s angels, fallen angels and demons from Hell, it’s such a well thought out and thoroughly researched plot.  The writing flows as that of a much more experienced writer.

As a reader, you feel what Sara feels.  The anger of being in a mental institution, the realization that the staff isn’t on her side, the fear of not knowing what has happened to her family, and the disbelief then determination as she starts to remember what she is and what her purpose is.

In a world where good may be evil, and evil may be good, Ms. Talleken has made Sara’s purpose perfectly clear.  To protect the humans freewill.

I seriously can’t wait for more from Astrid Tallaksen.  If you go to Penned Con this year, stop by her table and buy these books.  If you’re staying home, I’m including the buy links.  You won’t be disappointed!
