Nobody's Business Review & Giveaway



M.J. Kane stumbled into writing. An avid reader, this once stay-at-home mom never lost the overactive imagination of an only child. As an adult she made up stories, though never shared them, to keep herself entertained. It wasn’t until surviving a traumatic medical incident in 2006 that she found a reason to let the characters inhabiting her imagination free.  Upon the suggestion of her husband, she commandeered his laptop and allowed the characters to take life. It was that, or look over her shoulder for men caring a purple strait jacket. And the rest, as they say, is history.
No longer a television addict, if M.J. isn’t reading a book by one of her favorite authors, she’s battling with her creative muse to balance writing and being a wife and mother. She resides in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia with her high school sweetheart, four wonderful children, and four pit bulls. During the day, MJ is a librarian, in her spare time she is director of a local writer’s group, or online connecting with readers and other authors. Other activities she enjoys include: creating custom floral arrangements, assisting her children in their creative pursuits of music and art, and supporting her husband’s music production business, 3D Sounds.
MJ’s debut novel, A Heart Not Easily Broken, Book one of the Butterfly Memoirs, became an instant Amazon Bestseller in Multicultural Romance and African-American Literature and Fiction within hours of publication. It has also spent time on the African-American Women’s Fiction and African-American Romance Bestsellers lists.

You can find MJ on social networking sites, sharing writing tips, talking about music, life, and family. She’s always excited to meet new people. Connect with her via the websites below. 


Trevon Campbell’s world changed the moment his ex-girlfriend announced he was a father. Determined to make up for his past mistakes, he gives Trina what she wanted before their breakup, what feels like his soul, which means forgetting the woman he had a one-night stand with, the woman who stole his heart.

Kai Malone doesn’t want to play by her family’s rules. Instead of working for the family business, she became a firefighter. Being a female of multicultural descent, working in a field dominated by men, Kai focuses on her job to ignore the infidelity of her fiancé. Tired of his deceit, she gave in to a one-night stand with a complete stranger, someone she’d never have to see again…or so she thought.

When tragedy strikes, their worlds collide, leaving them no choice but to deal with each other again. It doesn’t take long for them to realize the attraction that brought them together the first time is stronger than ever, forcing Trevon to make the biggest decision of his life.

Sami's Review:
Kai is not your typical woman. Coming from a mixed heritage she is stunning but not a pushover by any means. She can’t afford to be in her line of work as a fire fighter she puts her life on the line for others and will do anything to protect those she loves. Her break up with playboy Malik has left her reeling. She thought he was the one but a one night sand showed her that she deserves so much more. When Trevon hooks up with an exotic beauty he instantly wants to know everything about her. He has to work just to get a name out of her even though he can’t find her she still haunts his mind and dreams. When she shows up at a friend’s house on the arms of a friend he is crushed, she lied to him about EVERYTHING. Of course sine that unforgettable night things have changed for them both. Trevon has a child he didn’t know about and is trying to work out a relationship with his mother and Kai is now single but still wounded. Fate and tragedy step in and brings them closer than ever. Can Trevon convince Kai that he is the man for her? Can Kai really let another man into her heart just to have it broken again? The broken pieces of each of them come together to make a whole but are they able to see that? With his son now in the picture can Trevon really afford a romantic entanglement? A great book that will leave you wanting more. 

 “Do you know what you’re going to say to him?” Ricky closed up the makeup kit he used and stuffed it back into his bag.
“To who?”
He rolled his eyes. “Malik.”
I shook my head. “Cheating Bastard. He doesn’t get to go by his birth name anymore.”
Ricky chuckled.
“Honestly? I have nothing to say. We were together for too long. If he wanted to end our relationship, he should have manned up and said so. I don’t know why he thought I’d be cool with him cheating on me.”
Ricky shot me a sideways glance. “Uh, probably because you let it go on for so long?” he supplied.
I sighed. He was right. I did let it go on. And on. And on. For some stupid reason I thought he’d get tired of it all and stay with me.
Nope. Didn’t happen.
So what did I do?
Repaid the ‘favor’ and had a fling of my own. Well, it was more of a one-night-affair. And to be honest, it couldn’t be called cheating. After promising to meet me so we could discuss our relationship and work things out, Malik conveniently became ‘unavailable’ at the last moment. Fed up with his lies, I called everything off. The wedding, that had yet to be planned, and our relationship in general. I didn’t want anything else to do with him.
Since I was already dressed up and too angry to sit alone at home and get depressed, I went to a bar to celebrate my decision. While I gave off all kinds of signals that said to any man in the vicinity, ‘leave me the hell alone,’ one man managed to talk to me.  And what did I do? Gave him hell, fussed, cussed, and damn near accused him of being the one who broke my heart.
And he let me.
When my tantrum was over, he bought me a drink and we managed to have a decent conversation. He was tall, had the sexiest shade of dark brown eyes, and a smile that made it impossible to not stare at his mouth.
After a few hours of decent conversation, it was obvious we were attracted to one another. So, I took advantage of the situation and decided that a few hours spent in bed with a man I would never see again would be the perfect way to take my mind off my broken heart.
After all, Atlanta was a big town. What were the odds of crossing paths with him again?

Apparently in my world, they were one-hundred percent.

Pistol Fanny's by Annie Rose Welch

Title: Pistol Fanny’s, Hank & Delilah Author: Annie Rose Welch Genre: Romantic Suspense Blitz Host: DRC Promotions

Synopsis:

Never fall in love with a bank robber.

Especially if she’s the one who robbed your bank, took you hostage, and dumped you unconscious at the local convenience store. And definitely not if you are the assistant district attorney of Tupelo, Mississippi.

This is the advice Hank Huckleberry Rivers would have given himself, back when he was a man who vowed to always walk on the right side of the law. The same law that had seemed sacrosanct ever since the day he and his friends watched as two men were murdered right below their tree house.

Falling in love with a dangerous criminal can have life-altering consequences, though. And when the past and the present meet head-on, Hank finds himself in more trouble than he ever bargained for. He must run to save his life, daring to find answers to the questions threatening his safety and his heart, as the killer below the tree house comes after Hank—and his pistol-wielding bank robber.

It’s a simple case of love in the first degree.

About The Author:

Born and raised in New Orleans, Annie has a habit of shortening her words and telling long stories. She speaks with a southern flair and cooks with it too. At the tender age of twenty- one, she hitched up her wagons (took her first plane ride) and moved out west to the big shake (California). Her writing career began one sleepless night when she imagined a gorgeous woman and a man with maniacal hair floating above her like lightening bugs falling from the sky. Curious about them, their story, and why they were floating around in her head, she sat down and penned (typed) her first novel, Marigny Street. A dream come true for her, she hasn't stopped writing since. She loves a damn good love story, always has, no matter what the genre. She is particularly moved by imperfect love that in its own unique way is perfect, the notion of love at first sight, soul mates, and things that are generally out of the norm.

When she's not writing she enjoys dabbling in photography and finding new, inspirational music to add to her collection. She currently (still) resides in the big shake (although her southern roots are calling her home) with her husband, daughter, and their two peculiar dogs, Boudreaux and Tabasco (who, call her crazy, bark with an accent).

Pure Lust, Book 3 by M.S. Parker

PureLust3RBBanner PureLust3Cover9006a-add-to-goodreads-button31 button synopsis I'd always thought the stepmothers in fairy tales were supposed to be the evil ones, not the mother-in-law. Even Snow White's wicked stepmother had nothing on Claire Bouvier. Gabriella Baine is going to marry the man of her dreams...if her monster-in-law-to-be doesn't drive her away first. As she struggles to deal with wedding plans, she's also beginning to realize that, no matter how much she tries, she can't stay away from her fiancé's younger brother, Flynn McCreary. He's arrogant, rude and lashes out at everyone around him, but that doesn't stop her from going back to him for work. When the unthinkable happens, it forces Gabriella to make the biggest decision of her life. Don't miss the penultimate installment of the heart-wrenching and steamy Pure Lust series by M.S Parker and Cassie Wild.

Soul Tie Seduction by K.D. Friedrich

Soul Tie Seduction Tour Banner Soul Tie Seduction by K.D. Friedrich The Jettison Brotherhood #1 Publication Date: July 6, 2015 Genres: Paranormal, Romance Soul Tie Seduction Cover

AmazonB&NKoboiBooksGoogle Play

Synopsis: Armen Jettison possesses a human soul. No big deal, right? Except for one thing, Armen is a sex demon, and demons should be soulless. Centuries of fighting his inner evil have left him tired and starved for some naughty action. When his leader offers him a mission to Anchorage, Alaska, to rescue a female threatened by his enemy, he jumps on the next flight. In an Anchorage tavern, he finds insecure, cynical Ariella Segreti. Not only is she the threatened woman he seeks but his Soul Tie, the only woman able to tame his unruly demon. Well, he did crave some naughty action. Now, he has a mate, a mysterious child, perilous old enemies, and enough adventure to send them all running for their lives. When the danger finally catches up to him, Armen must put aside old loyalties, forge new ones, and tackle the most difficult challenge of his existence—winning his stubborn Soul Tie’s heart.

Sami's Review:
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Ariella has had a rough time these past few years. With her divorce from Tony and having to raise their daughter Katie on her own she is a little in down in the dumps and lets not forget her mother whose idea of motivation is simply putting Ariella down. In an effort to raise her friends spirits Dee convinces Ariella to go out for a night on the town. The Polar Bar is not exactly Ariella’s idea of a good time but what else is one to do in Alaska? What starts off as a pretty decent night turns into a horror show of epic proportions. Armen will never understand why someone would willingly live in such a cold place. Yet Alaska is where he is sent by their family’s leader Curon in order to track down and save a Soultie and her daughter from the clutches of Mullin and his evil minions. Though he was warned that a Soulties scent could be distracting he was not prepared for its full impact. When he finally manages to track the delicious scent he is shocked to find that not only is the woman he is sent to save a Soultie but HIS Soultie. When all hell breaks loose in the bar it is all Armen can do to keep Ariella safe and get her out in one piece alive. The way that Ariella is introduced to his world is less than savory. With demons fighting each other over her Ariella is dumbfounded, scared and pissed off that they would dare threaten her daughter. Armen has his work cut out for him trying to convince this spitfire of a woman that not only does he mean her no harm but that she and her are two parts of a whole. Throughout this story Ariella learns some truths about her ex Tony that explains so much and yet still leaves her with questions. Can Armen get Ariella and Katie to safety before it’s too late? What does Mullin want with Katie? Can Ariella put aside her distrust of men and let Armen mend her heart and soul? Can Armen and Incubus really ever devote himself to just one woman? What makes Katie so special will leave everyone floored and more determined to save her than ever. A great read that will leave you eagerly turning the pages as well as awaiting the next installment to this series.

He wants that for her, but even more, he wants that with her. Ali has found a special place for her heart. But is there still enough room left in that heart for him?

  A photo teaser with reviewer's quote for Heartache Falls, by Emily March

Excerpt

"Very funny, Timberlake. This is the first time I've worn this shirt and I've spilled wine on it. It's probably ruined." "Take it off and rinse it in the creek before the stain sets." When she paused and looked worriedly around, he added, "No one will see you but the steer, and not only is it impossible for him to tattle on you, he doesn't have the equipment needed to take advantage of the situation. I, on the other hand..." He waggled his eyebrows wolfishly. Ali frowned at him. The amusement in his eyes transformed to heat. "Take off your shirt, Ali-cat." A ribbon of heat fluttered through her. "I guess I do need to soak the stain." "You certainly do." After glancing around the meadow one more time, she reached down to pull the shirt up and off, then hesitated. "If I do, will you give me your shirt to wear on the way back to town?" "I certainly will." He sucked in an audible breath when she revealed the sexy red bra. When she knelt beside the creek and leaned over to rinse the shirt, he shifted to get a better view. Ali tended to the shirt, honestly fretful over the stain. When she'd done her best with the shirt, she stretched it out to dry atop the boulder where she'd fished. When she turned around, Mac sat stretched out on their blanket, propped up on his elbows. He said, "I want to make love to you, Ali. Here. Now." add-to-goodreads-button

My Serenity by M. Clarke





First love never forgotten, My Serenity embraces your heart with dramatic emotions while leaving you satisfied with an amazing book hangover! Michele—Insane About Books




When tragedy strikes, Seth Stewart is forced to return home after the death of his beloved father. The unexpected detour forces him to oversee the family’s auto shop and restaurant business, and Seth must kiss the prestigious internship goodbye after his first year at Berkeley Business School. When he collides with his first crush after his arrival, Seth wonders what possibly could have happened to Josefina Anders. 



Josefina has hidden many secrets she is too ashamed to share with anyone, especially Seth. When they cross paths again, the urge to relive their past lingers in her mind even though she knows he couldn’t accept her sketchy past. Things get even more complicated when her mother returns, as well as her overly possessive ex, who decides to crash into her fragile existence all over again. 
Will Seth’s connection for Josefina be strong enough to see past her secrets, or will he realize he can’t rekindle an old flame?

    “Are you nervous, Mr. Stewart?” She smirked. Her eyes were beaming playfully.
     “No, not at all.” My pitch came off higher than I had expected, and I was upset with myself. I had to fix that. “I mean—” I cleared my throat. Two can play at this game, I thought. I squared my shoulders and sat up tall. “So, Josefina Anders, let me ask you some questions before I decide if I want to hire you.”
     Her brows lifted, most likely wondering if I was being serious or joking. Dropping her crossed leg, she pulled the chair closer to the table. Josie pulled a piece of paper out of an envelope that I hadn’t seen a second ago, tucked away behind her back. She placed a resume on my desk. “Ask away.”
     “How long have you been a waitress?”
     “As long as I can remember. I got hired right after high school.” She pointed to her resume. “You can see that I’ve only worked at a few places, but I’m loyal and a good employee.”
     “You’ve been a waitress for a long time, Ms. Anders. Do you think you’ll ever get sick of it?”
     “Not if it means I get to see Mr. Stewart.” Her lips curled wickedly.
     “Do you wear thongs or granny panties?”
     Josie’s lips puckered, stopping herself from busting up. “Mostly thongs, but I’m not wearing anything under my skirt at the moment.”
     Holy shit! I was trying to make her blush, but this was backfiring. Ignoring her last words, though it was extremely difficult to do, since all I could do was envision her with her skirt off, I continued, “Do you like to be on top or bottom?”
     “I will be in whatever position pleases Mr. Stewart. I’m very flexible.”












This captivating story will forever leave its mark on your soul and your heart. A truly beautiful story that I cannot wait for everyone to read. This love story shows every princess needs a hero. And every hero needs a princess. It showed the good, the bad, and the ugly. And in the end love prevailed. Sammie--Sammie's Book Club, for book lovers
