Darkness by Angel


Darkness
Every time I close my eyes I return to the pits of hell.
He is there waiting for me, wanting me.
He is no longer in human form.
He is all bones and no flesh.
His eyes and heart are as black as coal.
He just sits there...waiting
He points is finger at me to come to him.
I go to him because I don't know what else to do.
He cradles by face in his hands and says..
"Welcome home Beautiful"



Review for Vignettes of a Master by Jason Luke

 
Vignettes
of a
Master
 
By Jason Luke
 
 
What you are about to read is a collection of short scenes that I wrote live during a World Facebook Tour conducted over recent months.
For several weeks I appeared on Facebook pages from around the globe and wrote live scenes based on the suggestions of readers.
It was a fun, and grueling challenge. Hundreds and hundreds of readers posted brilliant suggestions, asking me to write scenes that used characters from my book, ‘Interview with a Master’.
Most of the scenes involve Jonah and Leticia, but the other characters in the book also make an appearance… and in several of the scenes I actually appear, interacting with the fictional characters I created!
At the end of the book are 30 brand new scenes that I wrote after the Tour. These are scenes that no one has read before now.

I hope you enjoy these paragraphs for what they are – snap-shot scenes written live as the ideas were presented to me. These paragraphs were not written as excerpts from the upcoming sequel. They are stand-alone scenes that have a life of their own, and are not part of any future book.
Enjoy!
 
 
I have to say that I loved Interview with a Master! I can go on and on about that book. I am sadly obsessed with Jonah Noble and it is all Jason Luke’s fault. J I can’t begin to describe how amazing this author is. He is amazing, brilliant, and so damn talented. I follow him on Face book and I even receive his news letter. When I heard he was doing a blog tour, I had a mini freak out. Crazy good right?! I know!
So this incredible author took all his writings and wrote Vignettes of a Master! Yup, he did that! I know you are thinking this is awesome, well you are correct because it is freaking awesome!
 
My 5 star review
March 17th Jonah and Leticia in a lingerie store. This one is super hot. I think I need to run to Victoria Secret really fast, Lee!!! Sorry to say this lee but Jonah Noble can come shopping with me any day. March 17th Jonah watching Leticia sleep. This is so adorable and I think I just feel in love with Jonah again and I didn’t even think that was possible. March 19th Jonah and Leticia waking up together. I love this one and I need more, please Mr. Jason Luke I need more! (That is it Lee Million your butt is reading this book and that is that!) March 19th Jonah Noble watches Leticia put on makeup. This one reminds me of my fiancée Lee so much. Because he actually watches me put my make up on, I use to think it is weird and now I love it!
I am not going to keep on going and spoil this for you. But if you haven’t read this book yet then you need to! Trust me you will love it just as much as I do. Again Jason Luke you are freaking amazing and I love your work. I do have to say that my new favorite flower is now the Iris! (lee please take notes, just kidding) You created Jonah Noble for crying out loud! I can’t wait to read In Love with a Master. Congrats on all of your success. I hope and look forward to reading tons of books by you. Jason Luke you are very talented and your work speaks for itself!
About the Author
 
 
 Jason Luke enjoyed several years involved in the BDSM lifestyle - but he is quick to point out that his experiences don't qualify him as an expert, any more than knowing how to drive a car makes him a qualified mechanic. 'Interview with a Master' is a novel about how one man became a Master. The book is a work of fiction, but Jason has drawn heavily on encounters from his own real life. He won't say which parts of the book are fictionalised, and which parts are auto-biographical.

Erotic BDSM fiction written by a man from a man's point of view.

Review for Under My Thumb By Abby Reynolds

 
Under My Thumb
by Abby Reynolds
 
 
Prudence sets out with her band to Los Angeles to make it big. Leaving behind London is difficult for her, but not because she fears she’ll be homesick. She’s never coming back. And her brother has no idea.

After she arrives, she performs one of her first shows. But little does she know, an admirer sits in the audience. She hypnotizes him and draws him in, making him immediately smitten. The obsession starts.

Cash is determined to be alone with this girl. After extreme lengths to share a quiet whisper, they agree on a spring fling. After the horrible break up Prudence had with her boyfriend, she doesn’t want to be hurt again. Cash’s reasons are still a mystery.

They spend the summer together, but their romance takes different avenues that Cash didn’t predict. He has a very strict set of rules with his women and he never breaks them…until Prudence.

And Prudence didn’t think she could trust someone as much as she trusts Cash. There isn’t just a strong physical relationship between them. For the first time, she’s not afraid of another lie being fed to her, another sleepless night, or wondering where he’s been. It’s the only stability she’s ever had.

After making her way into his heart, Cash struggles with his feelings. He’s been hurt before but can he risk being hurt again? His obsession for his musician grows stronger every day. The idea of her being with anyone but him is soul-crushing. And he doesn’t understand what’s happening to him. Has he fallen in love? Is that possible?

A gripping romance that will make your heart flutter, Under My Thumb is a classy tale of love coming from unlikely places.
 
 
My 5 Star review
 
I got an email asking me to read this book. All I can say is Abby Reynolds I freaking love you! This is your first book and you nailed it!!! And you created Cash Matthews!!!!
 
Prudence Clearwater I am jealous of you girl. She is smart, beautiful and very talented. Plus, she is in a freaking band too. She is the girl you want to be and she is every mans fantasy woman for sure. I really enjoyed getting to know this character. She is so damn broken and I am not sure if she will ever be fixed.
Cash Matthews I need you and I want you, sexy. Ok… I am sorry I am done. So he is gorgeous, brilliant, and a big time producer. Cash is broken too and it has to do with a B**** from his past. While reading this book I just wanted to hold him and give him my all. (Sorry lee, I need to add him to my list)
Once Cash and Prudence come together their relationship or shall I say arrangement will knock your socks off. Umm Cash can we make some sort of arrangement too?! (Kidding Lee) No really these two characters are so freaking WOW. You will be hocked for sure! I promise you!
This book is so damn good and I couldn’t stop reading it. Yes, I have to admit I read this book in less than 8 hours. Hey a girl has to work too. But on a serious not this book is SO good. This book is very well written. Yeah there are some editing errors but who cares; we are all adults we know what we are reading. I loved it, period. Abby will make you fall in love with all of her characters and yes there is one you will not like, maybe kind of. I was on the edge of my sit wanting to shake Cash and Prudence. Oh and I really wanted to slap Gavin, don’t worry he is in the band once you read this you will feel the same. No worries. Her brother Jeremy is the brother I have always wanted. Hell I am jealous and wish I had that kind of relationship with my own brother. Again…Not about me.
So people this book will have you wanting so much more and yes there is going to be a book two. Yes, I did get to the last page and email her and was like REALLY???? When is book 2 coming out! Oh yes, yes I did. For being her first Contemporary Romance book she freaking nailed it!

Review for Resisting Ryann (Book 2 Bad Boy Reformed Series) By Alyssa Rae Taylor

 
Resisting Ryann
 
By Alyssa Rae Taylor
 
What happens when the person you love becomes threatened by your very existence? How far will you go to keep them safe?

Luke Ryann will do anything to protect the woman he loves, even if it means shattering her heart. When the mystery of his past comes back to haunt him, he leaves Reese behind and enters the life of crime he had worked so hard to escape. When all is said and done, will he be able to get out of this alive, or will he be in over his head?

She’s been in love with him since her childhood, but now she questions everything. After Reese Johnson discovers Luke’s disappearance has nothing to do with the MMA, she faces a difficult choice. Can she find it in her heart to forgive him? Or will the secrets and lies be too damaging for her to trust again? Will this couple ever have a chance? You know what they say.

Sometimes … love just isn’t enough.

RESISTING RYANN is the second book in The Bad Boy Reformed Trilogy. This story isn't just a romance. It’s filled with action, suspense, mystery, and a touch of humor.

New adult romance. Recommended for mature readers due to situations of abuse, violence, language, and sexual content.



My 4 star review

 
I fell in love with Luke in Raising Ryann and I never stopped loving him. Luke and Reese are in my opinion soul mates but do soul mates always stay together?!

This book was really good and I have waited for this book to come out. So when Alyssa Rae Taylor asked me to read her book, I was like hell yes I will.

Luke is still a super sexy hottie to me. I am not even going to lie. I like that he is being selfless, and that makes him even sexier! He is trying to protect her and he will stop at nothing. Reese is freaking adorable! But sometimes she just needs to let people explain and not jump to conclusions. Then you have Sean the super sexy nerd, i am sorry i mean lawyer. I mean he looks like David Beckham minus the tattoos for crying out loud. Hello sold to Cecily!!!! (sorry lee) Sean has been there for Reese while Luke has pushed her away.

But so much is going on and she is left kicked to the curb.... or is she?? Are things really the way they seem?! That is what I was thinking while i was reading this book. I was pissed, happy, sad, and left with what the funk do i want to happen in book 3.

So with all that being said I am at a lose of words. I don't know what I want to happen anymore. I just want to bug Alyssa and ask her how book 3 will start and end. I can honestly say that either way it goes I will be happy, I think. LOL

Review for A Constant Attraction By AJ Walters

 
 
A Constant Attraction
 
By A J Walters
 
 
 
Funny, thrilling, romantic and spellbinding. This sequel to An Acute Attraction, will have you hooked!

When the voluptuous and curvaceous, Isabel Chambers decided to take a child-free week away to Cambridge; never in a million years did she think she would meet the 'God of a man', Marc Chambers, Professor of Medicine.
Having been convinced by her best friend, Jackie Dowling to go for it, it was probably the best thing that could have happened...or was it?

Isabel and Marc have dark pasts, for which both are wanting to overcome. However, the jealous and conniving Dr Emelie Acerbi has different ideas and is determined to spoil what connection, relationship and possible future the two have together.

Can Marc and Isabel continue to share the passion and thrills they have for one another? Or will the demons from their pasts and present get the better of them?

Let A Constant Attraction take you on an emotional journey of compassion, anger, laughter, lust and love...
 
 
My 5 Star Review
 
First off I want you thank AJ Walters for asking me to read Constant Attraction. It means a lot to me, so thank you very much.
To be honest I loved Acute Attraction and I was nervous going into the second book. Well let’s just say that I was proven very wrong.  I was left wanting so much more and I got it! I had a crush on Marc in book one but now you made me fall for him even more. I dream of having the kind of relationship like Marc and Isabel have. They are the cutest ever and I enjoyed their journey very much.
I didn’t like Emelie in book one at all. In my opinion she is a big ass bitch. I know what you are thinking, harsh right?! Well maybe but maybe not. I can say now that I actually feel sorry for Emelie and she is going to get what she deserves but I still feel bad for her.
This story will get all of your attention, believe me. I read it in less than a day. I mean really who wouldn’t, hello Marc… But the story is more than just a hot guy. I love Isabel and I am so glad that Marc has helped boost her confidence and helped her break out of the shell she lived in. I am sure there are so many women out there that can relate or know someone who can relate to this character. AND that is what makes a great book.
So Congratulations AJ Walters on another successful, amazing, sweet, loveable, adorable romantic book! Also thank you for creating Marc he is quite the character. So with that being said I look forward to your next project!!!! Hint! Hint!
About the Author
 
A J Walters is a new contemporary romance author who has just made her first appearance on to the indie circuit. Having interests in history, romance and elements of erotica, she has brought all of these together in her debut publication; An Acute Attraction.

Wanting to break the trend of size 12 virgins in books, A J Walters has introduced a new real woman in Isabel Chambers. She’s a size 18-20, working single mother who now feels is it her time to start living her life again. At the ripe young age of 39, A J Walters also wanted to show that you can experience everything that a twenty-something would.

“I saw that a 39 year old isn’t quite at retirement age for fun, sex and finding love again. There are so many women out there that can be represented in books as well as the slim, innocent and beautiful types. Don’t get me wrong I love reading books with them in, but there is so many of them around now I felt it is time for something different. I’d like to think I brought my sense of humour across in it as well. I am ditsy, I suffer from ‘foot in mouth’ syndrome, but I can also be serious and sentimental. From the feedback I’ve had, apparently it makes for a great writing voice.”

A J Walters currently lives in North Staffordshire, UK with her 2 children.

You can purchase An Acute Attraction from Amazon Worldwide, WHSmith, Lulu.com or other online book outlets around the World.. It is available in all formats.

Review for Emily-A Compilation of Short Stories By Chantal Bellehumeur

 
Emily
A Compilation of Short Stories
By Chantel Bellehumeur
 
 
This heart-warming compilation contains the twelve family oriented short stories “A Mother’s Love,” “A Father’s Promise”, “An Unplanned Wedding,” “Emily’s Birthday Getaway,” “Emily and Veronica,” “The Halloween Party,” “Rest in Peace,” “Happy Holidays,” “Nadia’s First Birthday,” “Saint Valentine’s Day,” “Saint-Patrick’s Day,” and “The Coming of Spring” originally published in The Suburban Online Magazine between April 2013 and April 2014. They are all about the same loving characters, mainly Emily Jacobson. It starts off with Emily finding out that she is pregnant at the age of eighteen. The stories then follow about one year of Emily’s life as a new mom, loving wife, and traveler, among other interesting things.

(On a side note, if you read the fictional diaries “Veronica’s Soap Opera Life,” “Veronica’s Attempt at Romance,” and “Veronica’s Happily Ever After” by Chantal Bellehumeur, the main character is featured in this series.)
 
 
 
My 5 star review
 
 

This book is so cute and I love the main characters. I feel as if I got to watch both of them grow and that makes the book really good.

Emily and William are the cutest young couple ever. My heart broke for her in chapter 1 because I have been in her shoes before and she was a lot stronger then I was. I was in awe over William, now he is a real man that takes care of his responsibilities. I enjoyed each chapter but my favorite chapter was A Father’s Promise. This chapter melted my heart when her father was telling stories of Emily when she was younger. After reading this chapter I had to call my dad and tell him how much I love him. This book will pull on your heartstrings for sure.

Chantal Bellehumeur thank you for wanting me to read this book, it is a beautiful story. I hope you continue this story till Emily and William are old and gray.
 
 
About the Author
 
 
 
I am a multi-genre author who always loved to write but never thought about publishing anything until a friend of mine told me I should.
Before that, I was more interested in acting. I performed in a couple of amateur stage showed and joined a Youth run Theatre Company. I was also an extra in a few commercials, TV shows and movies.

My love for acting soon got replaced with the love for my son. I made him my number one priority. I found it easier to write on my spare time than to work around other people's schedules to act. I found that I had to use some of my acting training to write since I had to put myself in the shoes of the characters I created.
I currently have 9 books available to purchase. One of them is a compilation of my family oriented short stories originally published in The Suburban's Online Magazine.
My poem "Hiding in the Wilderness" and short story "Born to Sing" were featured in the 2014 Aspire to Inspire Women Writer's Anthology, which instantly became a best seller.
More of my poetry was featured in the anthology "Words of Fire and Ice," which quickly reached the #1 Bestseller status on both the Poetry Multi-Author Anthologies and Poetry Anthologies via Smashwords.
While I continue to come up with stories, I encourage my son to so some writing of his own since he is full of good ideas and has a big imagination. He reminds me of myself as a child.
I am a single mom and feel very lucky to have my son in my life. I wrote a memoir of motherhood, which was included in the compilation book "They Call me MamaBear" put together by author Amber Royce.
On a side note, Whether you own any of my books or not, you can request a personalized digital autograph from me. =)

Review for Trying to Get Over You by J.D. Rivera

 
 

Trying to Get Over You

By J.D. Rivera

 

Choices in life are hard.


College student Emily Reynolds has been in a three year relationship with Cooper Thomason but a few events has left their relationship shaken. She finds out she is pregnant and Cooper can’t give up his partying ways. Emily leaves Cooper and tries to find a life without him. She soon finds out a life without Cooper is harder than she thinks. Will Emily be able to move on from Cooper and find a relationship with another man or run back to him?
 
 
My 4.5 star review
 
Thank you J.D. Rivera for allowing me to read your book, I enjoyed it very much!
 
Where to begin, oh yes Cooper! Cooper is a college student about to graduate and he is landing a great new spot at his current place of business. He is quite the looker and there are a lot of girls, ladies and woman who would love to get a piece of him. But see Cooper is madly in love with Emily, he girlfriend of three years. Now, Now with that begin said everyone has flaws some are small and some are huge.
 
Emily is a beautiful young woman who doesn’t see herself that way. She too is also a college student and lives with her boyfriend. Cooper her boyfriend is also her Brother Chris’s best-friend. Ouch! Right, maybe?!  We all know that relationships are not perfect but then again there is no such thing as perfection.
 
Cooper and Emily go through quite a rough patch in their relationship. I have to say that I am emotionally invested in these two kids right here. I love Cooper and Emily! In my opinion they are the cutest book couple. Once I started this book I could not put it down. I was very emotional too. I wanted to take Emily and shake her maybe even slap her in the back of her head. I wanted to punch Cooper, well because of what he did. But I can’t tell you what he did; sorry you will have to read it for yourself.
 
So this book is so damn good, cute, funny, stressful, and simply a really good read. I was not happy that the book was over. There are other characters in this book such as Chris Emily’s brother and Jen Emily’s best-friend. I can only hope and wish that J.D. Rivera will write a book two. Why? Well because I want more of Cooper, Emily, Jen, and Chris that is why!

Review for Salvation by Noelle Adams

 
Salvation
 
by Noelle Adams
 
 

You get to the point where you can just say it. There was never anything special about me, except my father is rich and important. That's why it happened.

It was just a normal Tuesday afternoon. I was twenty-three and thinking about my new designer boots. They kidnapped me for ransom. They raped me before I was rescued. My therapist says that talking about it means I'm starting to heal.

I don't really think I am.

It's even harder to talk about Gideon. He couldn't save me when it really mattered, so he keeps trying to save me now. He refuses to give up on me, and I can't make him understand. There are some things you just can't be saved from.

Salvation is a love story that follows a difficult path of healing after sexual assault. It is a true romance, but it addresses very hard issues, including rape and attempted suicide. The novel is not, however, about captivity and violence. It is about love, healing, and hope.
 
 
My 4.5 star review
Diana is a beautiful young woman who sees herself as just an average woman. She works at an antique shop. He father is an executive and has tons of money. So let’s just say that he gets into bed with the wrong people.
Gideon is a sexy undercover FBI agent. He got his cover blown while he was on an assignment so now he is a prisoner and just waiting for his time to come. They will kill him, that is what he is thinking but he is hoping that his team will come in and save the day.
Diana and Gideon meet in the worst kind of way EVER. They are both prisoners and they have no other choice but want to fight for each other to stay alive. Things happen to both of them but one has it way worse than the other. When things happen to individuals they deal with it in many different ways.
The first chapter of this book will crush your heart. I was in shock and my heart broke for Diana and Gideon I wanted to rip through the book and save her from all the pain she endured. WOW. After I finished the first chapter I had to put the book down for a minute and take a mini breather. Talk about intense, raw, real, and very emotional! Sweet baby Jesus this book is killing me, it is so good that I can’t put it down.
I just finished this book and I am not going to lie it was pretty amazing. I know for a fact that this book can and will help comfort so many woman out there. That is what makes this book freaking amazing. I feel a close bond with Diana and I wanted to make her better.
This is the first book from Noelle Adams that I have read. Congrats on such a heart-breaking, intense, real, raw, emotional, beautiful, breath taking, wonder, fabulous, amazing story! AND yes I mean all of that. Once you pick this book up you will understand and agree with all these words!

Bang by E.k. Blair

 

Bang

By E.K. Blair

 
They say when you take revenge against another you lose a part of your innocence.
But I’m not innocent.
I haven’t been for a very long time.
My innocence was stolen from me. Taken was the life I was supposed to have. The soul I was born with. The ruby heart embedded in a life full of hopes and dreams.

Gone.
Vanished.

I never even had a choice.
I mourn that life. Mourn the what-ifs.
Until now.
I’m ready to take back what was always meant to be mine.

But every plan has a fatal flaw. Sometimes it’s the heart.

**Due to the dark and explicit nature of this book, it is recommended for
mature audiences only.**
 
My 5 star review
I have read a lot of books and have only reviewed a hand full of them. I have to be honest and say that this is the hardest review that I have ever had to do. EVER! I normally start with the character and tell you a little about then but not this time. So here goes…..
E.K. Blair you literally wrote a book that is far from any book that I have ever read. I have to say that when I was 28% into this book I had to but it down and take a breather from it. Yes people this book is that intense. No scratch that intense isn’t the right word to use the right word to use is Dark! Then once I hit 50% is said forget I can’t read this book anymore it hits to close to home and I won’t finish it. But then I sat down and said I am not a quitter and I have been waiting to read this book.
So I messaged E.K. Blair on good old Facebook and told her that I was 50% into this book and I need to put it down and that I would pick it back up in the morning. And I am a woman of my word and I did just that.
With all that being said this book is dark, cold, calculated, dangerous, crazy, sad, twisted, heart-stopping, gut-wrenching and a million other words. This book is not like any other book, trust me. I was an emotional wreck while reading this book. I cried, yelled, screamed, and wanted to kill someone. Nina is the main character and she is beyond broken. She lived in hell for years and she in my opinion lost herself years ago. She is fucked up period there is no other word that I can use to describe her emotional state. (sorry mother for the language) All I can say is this book will blow your damn mind! BLOW YOUR DAMN MIND! I had no idea that this story would unfold the way that it did. I am still in shock and speechless.
I can’t wait for book 2 to come out. E.K. Blair I have no clue how you put all this together. You took a story that I am sure has happened to woman and men out there and made it real. I know that sounds crazy but when you read this book, it is as if you are sitting in a group of friends and listening to someone tell their story. I just sucked in and trapped into this story. This author stepped way out of her box and pushed the limits and succeeded.
So Congrats E.K. Blair on pushing the limits of writing! You have balls of steel and you never stopped writing and you didn’t give up on this story!
