Fate by Nikki Sex.. and Review


Fate
by Nikki Sex

How far would you go to get something you really want?
Emily Malone has had a lifelong crush on her brother’s best friend, Paul.
Unfortunately, he just sees her as his friend’s little sister.
Desperate and infatuated, Emily resorts to lies and deception.
She only needs one night with Paul, to finally get over this obsessive crush.
But Fate has other ideas, and whether or not Emily knows it, everything happens for a reason. . .

My Review:

I have been a fan of Nikki's for a while now and her storied just seem to amaze more each time. In Fate Emily knows exactly what she wants and with whom she wants it with. Unfortunately she doesn't know if her brother's best friend will share the same feelings. Emily decides to take a trip to Cabo and reinvent herself as Candy and take advantage of her time with her lifelong love Paul. I mean who wouldn't want to become a whole other person and fulfill their fantasy even for one night. Paul was not your typical boy next door. He didn't have relationships but after spending the night with Candy he just couldn't get her off his mind. Would their night of passion turn into something else?  If you believe in Fate this a true must read.

BLURB:

Burned by an unreliable source, Savannah Carmichael, returns to her hometown of Danvers, Virginia with her once-promising journalism career in ruins. Given the opportunity to get her skin back in the game by writing a patriotic human interest piece, Savannah turns her attention to the town hermit, Asher Lee, a wounded veteran who returned to Danvers eight years ago, and hasn't been seen since.
 
After an IED explosion in Afghanistan took Asher’s hand and disfigured half of his face, he's lived a quiet life on the outskirts of Danvers where the locals respect his privacy…that is, until Savannah Carmichael comes calling in a borrowed sundress and a plate of homemade brownies. When Asher agrees to be interviewed by Savannah, he starts feelings things for the beautiful reporter that he hasn't felt in years.
 
Misfits in small-town Danvers, Savannah and Asher create a bond right away, touching each other’s hearts in ways neither thought possible. When a terrible mistake threatens to drive them apart, they’ll have to decide if the love they found in one another’s arms is strong enough to fight for their hard-won happily ever after.


Excerpt:

Savannah sent the next installment of “Asher Lee: An All-American Story” to Maddox by noon on Friday, and she waited, tense, to find out what he thought. Her phone rang by 12:30.
            “Carmichael? Maddox McNabb here. I read your piece.”
            “And?”
            “Something’s missing. You’re holding something back.”
            “How do you mean, sir?”
            “Your general descriptions are just fine. But, the way you describe him; it’s half-asssed. It’s like you’re afraid to say too much. This was a date, wasn’t it? This dinner in the Grove?”
            Savannah grimaced. She’d tried to write the piece as two friends having dinner together. Apparently it didn’t fly. “I guess so, sir.”
            “Let me give you some advice, Carmichael. Give it heart, or give it up. You falling for this man? Asher?”
            Savannah gritted her teeth. She’d promised a human interest story, not her personal business. It felt like whoring herself. Worse, it felt like whoring Asher.
            “Your silence tells me all I need to know. That’s the story, Carmichael. Whether you like it or not, that’s the story. How you went after an interview and fell in love instead. Like it or lump it, that’s the story I want. That’s the story I need. That’s the story my readers will “ooh” and “ahh” about on the Fourth of July. The beautiful hard-nosed reporter who fell for the mysterious, disfigured war vet. It’s “Beauty and the Beast” with the “Star Spangled Banner” playing in the background. Don’t like it? Don’t write it. We go our separate ways. You decide, kid.”
            Her hackles rose, bitter and indignant. “But, sir, I can do a fine piece on Asher Lee’s injuries, the way this town turned their backs on him, how he writes poetry and went to UVA and got into John’s Hopkins but decided to serve his country instead. His story is remarkable. He’s remarkable. I’m nobody. I’m nothing. No one wants to read a story about me.”
            “Wrong!” bellowed Maddox McNabb. “I hate to tell you kid, but right here, right now? You’re the story. Name of the game is human interest. You’re human. I’m interested. Either re-write it by tomorrow, or don’t contact me again.” And he hung up.
            Savannah clenched her jaw, lowering the phone from her ear to her lap, her head spinning. Damn it, but she was stuck. And damn it, but she hated being stuck. There had to be another way: another person she could interview, another war vet who had a story to tell…but no, Maddox McNabb wouldn't be interested in that story. He already had a humdinger on the line.
            She took a deep breath, lying back on her bed and staring despondently at the ceiling. Whatever was happening between her and Asher felt too good, too fine, to be used as fodder for a news story. It felt low and cheap even to consider it. And yet…she was a good writer wasn't she? All of her professors at NYU had told her so, and she’d been the fastest rising reporter at the Sentinel before her inglorious fall. Couldn't she pull it off in such a way that would appease Maddox but not expose the most private man she’d ever met? She bit her bottom lip, thinking.
There must be a way, she thought, and whatever that way is, I will figure it out before tomorrow.

Tempt My Heart Blog Tour...



Title: Tempt My Heart
Author: Danielle Jamie 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Release Date: May 2 2014

Brittan McKenna’s life was perfect. After getting engaged to her high school sweetheart her happily ever after seemed to be all planned out. However after 9/11 her fiancĂ©e drops out of college to enlist; Brittan’s life takes a swift turn. After enjoying a heartfelt reunion with Cane when he returned from his first tour, her joy was short lived as tragedy struck. Cane was killed in the line of duty during his second tour in Iraq. However after years of longing and pining for her dearly deceased, will her heart be able to beat again for another? Will she be able to take a leap of faith?


On the day Cane died, Brittan believed her heart had died along with him.......or so she thought until her passion for music causes her to blaze a new trail testing fate and “tempting tomorrow”.



Eight years marks the anniversary of Cane’s death when Brittan sets eyes upon Jordon; a guitarist whose shrouded in mystery and a world class bad boy for her bands opening act, Tempting Tomorrow. Will he have that spark to set Brittan’s heart a light? Does he have what it takes to win her heart and to make her love again?



Falling for a rock star is a dangerous game, but it’s a hopeless task when you both have hidden demons.



For Jordon love does not exist... not until he meets the lovely Brittan who has the power to tame the untameable beast inside of him.



Will Brittan open her heart to love or will she sabotage the relationship before it even has a chance?










I think my heart just stopped and then started again, as I take in the site of Brittan wearing boy short panties and a tight tee. A ghost of a smile creeps across my lips as her eyes land on mine.
Her mouth makes an O shape and she screams, “Holy shit, Jordon!” while trying to tug her very tiny tee down.
I kick my foot up on my knee and stretch my arms out along the bench seat as I relax against in the booth. Her all of a sudden shyness is adorable and making my dick stir to life in my jeans. I let out a low raspy laugh, “I don’t know why you’re all of a sudden all bashful. It’s not like I haven’t been up close and very personal with what’s under those adorable leopard panties of yours.”
Plopping down across from me she furrows her brows as she snatches the latte from in front of me, “Sorry I’m a little more self-conscious when I’m not drunk.”
“Well with a body like that, you should never feel self-conscious because I swear on this blueberry muffin,” I actually got a small smile out of her with that one, “You have the hottest body to ever grace this earth…and believe me I’ve seen my fair share. So you need to take my word for it.”
Breaking off a piece of her chocolate muffin she’s been nibbling on she chucks the chunk of muffin at my head and lets out the cutest little laugh, “You’re such a pig. But thanks, I guess.”
“You’re welcome. Now that you’re caffeinated is it safe to ask you about last night without being kicked in the baby makers and tossed out on my ass?” I ask as I sip my latte, and prepare myself for a Brittan bitch slap.
Brittan doesn’t speak for a few moments; she just stares down at her muffin while scooping whipped cream off of her latte and licking it off her finger.
Fuck. I am trying to be Mr. Concerned but it’s really hard when she is doing shit that’s making mehard.
Now I know why guys and girls aren’t normally ‘just friends.’



Geesh... what a tear jerker!!! I was just balling like a baby! The story line was fabulous. So up to date and current with our time in society. First let me say I loved all the character names. Cane and Brittan what put young love they had engaged and ready to commit to one another for life. Then tragedy happens and their world is blown a part. The only thing that Brittan can do is sing. She had a great love for music and finally got her chance. Although she loved music she still yearned for Cane. she had a terrible time trying to get over him and the life that should have been. Along come Jordan, piercing bright eyed Jordan who literally rocked her world. Was she ready to give up the fight and put her love for Cane in the past. Only time would tell. if you love a good cry this one is for you. if you love a great story line this one is for you. I can't wait to see what Jamie has up next to read!

Electrified by Rachel Blaufeld

Electrified

by Rachel Blaufeld

Blurb
Everyone knows her as Sienna Flower.  
Her curves and long lashes tease and taunt from her very own billboard where the desert meets the Las Vegas Strip. She’s the hottest stripper in town, known for her sultry and indecent moves coupled with her virginal eyes.  
She’s a heady and unique combination, and a mystery to all who come to see her.  
Sienna captivates crowds nightly at the Electric Tunnel, leaving them wanting to know more about the sensual enigma. But no one ever sees beyond the heavily guarded stripper onstage. She is Sienna Flower 24/7.  
No one other than her closest friend and boss, Asher Peterson, who helped turn a young and frightened girl into who Sienna is today. Together they created the sexual illusion known as Sienna Flower. They will go to any lengths to protect her image, which is why Sienna is convinced she must remain unattached and alone.  
Like everyone else in Vegas, Sienna is hiding something and playing a role. A good girl in her former life, she was raised to be obedient and accepting of her fate, but there are some circumstances no one should be expected to accept. She escaped to a world light years away from the one she was subjected to…the Electric Tunnel.  
Now she can never be anything other than Sienna Flower. Not only would she be hurt, but everyone around her would suffer the consequences.  
That is, until she meets private detective Carson Graham, the dark and mysterious ex-FBI agent who watches her dance every weekend. With his dark hair and chocolate-brown eyes, Carson begins to heat Sienna’s heart and body, melting away the layers and secrets. Sienna doesn't want to get attached to Carson, but when another man surfaces and starts hunting her down, bringing out the scars of her old life, she can’t help but seek comfort in Carson’s protection.  
With everyone trading on the secrets of her past, Sienna finds herself caught in an awful web of lies. Her ultimate fear is hurting her friends at the Tunnel, but she doesn't know who to trust. Namely, Carson. Is he good? Or bad? Does she have the luxury of finding out?  

My Review:

This was a great first book by Rachel and I look forward to many more.

A Sweet, sensual and exotic book. Sienna is a powerhouse character who has had a past past and ran away from it all. Starting over as a new person has given her great notoriety and self esteem for herself. Although she appears to have it all together she is truly broken and yearns for that deep love. Along come Carson a former FBI agent He is mysterious and handsome and there is just something about him Sienna can't get enough. A great read and the chemistry is electrifying.

About the Author:
Rachel Blaufeld is a social worker/entrepreneur/blogger turned author. Fearless about sharing her opinion, Rachel captured the ear of stay-at-home and working moms on her blog, BacknGrooveMom, chronicling her adventures in parenting tweens and inventing a product, often at the same time. She has also blogged for The Huffington PostModern Mom, and StartupNation.

Turning her focus on her sometimes wild-and-crazy creative side, it only took Rachel two decades to do exactly what she wanted to do—write a fiction novel. Now she spends way too many hours in local coffee shops plotting her ideas. Her tales may all come with a side of angst and naughtiness, but end lusciously.

Rachel lives around the corner from her childhood home in Pennsylvania with her family and two dogs. Her obsessions include running, coffee, icing-filled doughnuts, antiheroes, and mighty fine epilogues.

APM synopsis
Sometimes a chance comes along that can change the course of an entire life – make it right again, make a dream come true – and when that moment arrives, we grab it and fight with all of our might to make it happen … or not. Renowned singer/musician Garry Danzlo has decided to live a life of seclusion after a debilitating accident destroys his musical career. Guilt-ridden and stubborn, he wants no part of the holistic nurse his sister has hired to rehabilitate him. He’s determined to get rid of her; she’s determined to stay. Spunky, fun-loving Amanda Fields, widowed after a loveless marriage, is on a mission for love. More than anything in the world, she wants to adopt a wheelchair-bound boy named Robbie. When her chance arrives that will provide her with sufficient funds for the adoption, there’s nothing to stop her from accomplishing the temporary job in Colorado. But what she has to contend with is far more than just a difficult patient. Unexpected obstacles are suddenly out of her control. The least of her worries is falling for yet another man who doesn’t love her back. One Chance, One Moment is a humorous, surprising and deeply emotional story of love found by two special people – love built on chances one must sometimes take, but sometimes give as well. Each moment becomes nourished by the faith of one woman, and eventually, by the dream of one man. teasers onom3 onom2 onom1 onom full-for-cover-reveal PerfectmomentGiveaway

His Reverie Teaser
EXCERPT: “Thirsty?” I jump at the sound of a soft female voice, my hand jerking so the hose splashes me right in the face. Muttering a curse, I drop the hose and reach out blindly, wrenching the faucet off with one hand as I swipe at my eyes with the back of the other. I hear the girl laugh and I whirl around, fully prepared to find some bratty preteen Hale daughter mocking me. But she’s not a preteen. Not even close. More like around my age. She’s tall and slender, her long blonde hair falling far past bared tan shoulders. She’s wearing some sort of sundress or whatever you call it and she’s pretty much covered since it hits just above her knees, though her arms are exposed since the dress is sleeveless. The sun catches her just right though, shining through the thin fabric of her skirt so I can see through it. My gaze drops and all I can see is long, long legs through the shadowy fabric. Damn. Those sexy legs are endless. She clears her throat, like she knows exactly where I’m looking and what I’m thinking and I jerk my gaze up guiltily to meet hers, feeling like a jackass. That’s when I notice her eyes are blue. As blue as the sky above us, and she’s so damn pretty, with delicate features and pink, pink lips, that I can’t seem to form words. “Who are you?” she asks curiously. Her voice washes over me, sweet and melodic and now it’s my turn to clear my throat to get the lump out so I can freaking speak. “Who are you?” I ask back like an idiot. She smiles shyly and my entire body reacts, a bolt of electricity seeming to go through me. “I asked first.” “Are you Hale’s daughter?” If she is, that sucks because holy hell she’s hot but yeah. She’s completely untouchable if she’s a Hale. “What if I am?” She kicks at the ground with her sandaled foot, her cheeks coloring the faintest pink. Innocence radiates from her. She looks like a damn angel and seems a little uncomfortable with me. Despite her seeming discomfort, I think she might be trying to flirt with me. “Well, I’d make sure and be extra polite to you since I work for your dad.” I go with the truth because I don’t want any problems from this girl. I probably shouldn’t even be alone with her. She could say anything, accuse me of something terrible and I’d have no defense. Her word against mine. And her word would win every single time. Another laugh escapes her and she slowly shakes her head. “I like your honesty.” I like everything about her so far but I keep my lips clamped shut. I’ve already said enough to make myself look like a total loser.“So I’m guessing you’re definitely Hale’s daughter?” MonicaMurphypic-250x373ABOUT MONICA MURPHY: New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Monica Murphy is a native Californian who lives in the foothills below Yosemite.

REVIEW 
What can I say about this book except that I totally loved it from beginning to end.
The Cover had me at Hello! Such a great story line of broken girl meets bartender. Ledger knew right from the start that he had exactly what Cam needed and he was not afraid to act on it. I really enjoy the hot steamy sexiness of the book. It really drew me in. The story is  a great one for those who feel like they are struggling in a relationship and can't break free. Ledger helped Cam get through this and was her saving grace. He was there for her and treated her exactly like a women should be treated. i strongly recommend this book. I give it a 5 star all the way!!!

Mother of Two Boys...
My husband and I are blessed with two amazing young men. They are 9 and 11 right now, and both are on very different parts of the autism spectrum. I’ve learned so much by being their mom and feel pretty lucky to have become a part of a community of loving, understanding people.
If you’d like to meet my oldest son, just watch Big Bang Theory and shake hands with Sheldon. Those two are so similar, straight down to the fake laugh when they recognize something is funny.
My youngest cannot be explained. He’s more of an experience, and a joyful one at that.
Romance Novelist...
I’ve always loved to write. I’ve written for newspapers and magazines, also a host of personal projects. Then in December of 2012 I was reading on my first Kindle, gobbling up romances left and right. That’s when I fell in love with Ethan Blackstone, by the way.
Anyway, I was inspired to sit down and write. Less than one year later I’ve published three books, written another and its sequel novella, and started on two more. As of November of 2013, I’m more than 60k words into those two total. Since I’m sure I won’t update this bio for a long time, you’ll have to rely on my Facebook updates to know what’s going on with Kemmie Michaels romances. There are stalker links on my home page.
