Title: Letting Go
Series: The Garage Series #1 
Author: Holly Renee
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 31, 2015

BLURB

When Kat was forced to leave the only home she had ever known due to her brother's secrets, she wasn't prepared for what was waiting for her in Tennessee or the choices it would force her to make.

Kat instantly knew she didn't like Blake Reagan. He was cocky, stubborn, and infuriating. What Kat didn't understand was why she couldn't stop thinking about him or the way he made her feel.

The last thing Blake expected was for Kat Archer to storm into his world and turn it upside down. He thought he had her pegged from the beginning, but she destroyed everything he thought he knew. Blake was willing to fight to push his way into Kat's heart, but she put up a wall at every turn as she clung to her past.

If she stayed, she'd risk the only family she had left. If she left, she'd lose Blake and every piece of her heart that he'd managed to steal.

Synopsis:

Jules Donovan has been in and out of unsavory foster homes and repulsive motels her entire life. She’s known nothing but loss, abandonment, crime, and pain. Now that she's aged out of the system, she can’t remember ever having dreams for her future because she’s constantly fighting for daily survival. 


When she meets the Riley brothers, there’s something about them that draws her in. She’s never let her guard down, but Dante and Holden make her feel valuable, like she actually matters. And for the first time in her life, she senses something she’s never experienced before—protection. 



But can these mysterious brothers keep her safe from the dark monsters that lie in wait, ready for their final revenge? And how in the hell does older brother Dante know so much about her anyway? 



Unbeknownst to her, things have been set in motion ever since she was ripped from her mother’s womb and, as each jagged piece of her life unfolds, she will begin to wonder, who’s really in charge of her fate?

Review for The Panty Whisperer by Sloan Howell


Inline image 5


THE PANTY WHISPERER - Volume 6
Author Sloane Howell
Release date 28 July 2015 

Inline image 1

BLURB
 
Has Joel finally met his match?

This is a follow up novella to the first five short stories in The Panty Whisperer serial.

Have you ever been pushed to the edge, and then over it? Have you ever had your toes cramp and your head shoot to the sky, trying to log every touch, every feeling in your memory, to reenact every situation later in the shower, or underneath your cool bed sheets? Have you ever had someone own your mind, penetrating every single one of your sexual fantasies, unable to shake free of them?

The thought of me will be a thirst you can't quench, an itch you just can't scratch, a drug that you cannot have. Every time you run your fingers down over your body, longing for that unattainable feeling I gave you, that warm sensation shooting into your toes, that complete surrender of all inhibition, aching for me to have you just one more time, I'll be there, inside your mind...

My name is Joel Hannover and I am the panty whisperer. Some men are good at business, some gifted at mathematics--I'm good at making women come, hard. It's a gift I've possessed my entire life. If there was a girl nobody could bed, I was the first to get there. I always get there. I work as an accounting software consultant. That's a fancy way of saying I'm a salesman. Accounting departments are full of women, dressed conservatively, presumed to live boring, mundane lives. Nothing could be further from the truth. These women are unique, sexual creatures, yearning for someone to take them to their breaking point and beyond. 
How will Joel cope with Quinn's rejection?  You'll have to read to find out...

My 5 star review

I am literally sitting at my computer trying to figure out how in the hell am I going to write this review without giving anything away...
Sloane Howell is crazy amazing and left me in complete shock. When I got done with this book I wanted to cry and yes I might have thrown my kindle on the ground like a damn football.
We see a little different side of Joel in this book and I have to say that I actually liked it. It made his character even more realish to me. BUT then you have his best friend Tommy who completely stole the book. His character is freaking awesome and don't get me started on his sense of humor. I have officially cheated on Joel and now I want Tommy. Quinn is still my hero! I love this woman’s character because she takes zero shit from anyone and she won’t apologize for it either. She is a woman after my own heart.

So overall this book is 10 stars! You get a sexy, hot, steamy, funny, serious, amazing story all wrapped in one. I can't wait for volume 7 to come out because I need to know what is going to happen next!

Review for Dangerous Desire by Sebastian Ex


Dangerous Desire

by 

Sebastian Ex

Amazon US ----> http://amzn.com/B010TM42CA


My name is Brandon Edwards. Men like me don’t come along often. I'm a gentleman, a lover, a protector, and a Dominant. I've never been the type who can – or even wants to – commit to a woman…until I met Penny a couple of years ago. Since then, we've been in a committed relationship. I adore and cherish her.
Penny has a darkness inside her, a yearning for extreme pain. But I don’t want that for her, nor can I give her what she’s so desperate for. Her craving has led her down risky paths, and it’s my job to keep her off those now.
There’s a dangerous desire lurking within all of us. But when does wanting more become too much?


My 5 star review


I am going to do this review a little different....

This book to me is more than just a dominant man and his submissive women. To me this book is about a man who is crazy in love with a woman who needs what he can't give her and he is willing to go to hell and back to give her what she needs and desires. It is a love story with a different twist! Brandon Edwards is extremely passionate and I want him. He cares so deeply for the people in this life and he will stop at nothing to keep them safe.
Penny is a woman that has a dark side and Brandon is the perfect person for her. They balance each other out and it is simply perfect. My heart broke for Penny in this book and I can honestly say that I can feel her pain.
Is this book about Brandon and Penny, yes. BUT we get to meet Daisy and Jackson and I have to say that these characters are now my favorite. The way that Brandon comes in and takes charges is incredible and I loved every second of it.
Sebastian EX is an amazing author! This man will suck you in with every word he writes. I guarantee! I love his books and I can't wait to read many more! I have to be honest here....yes I do stalk his Facebook page but really who wouldn't. Right?!
All jokes aside...I love this book and I love and want Brandon and I blame Sebastian EX for making me leave Mathew sitting on the side lines. So now...I am completely interested in wanting to get to know Nathan more. Hint...Hint!

Interview with Sloane Howell Author of The Panty Whisperer



My Interview with Sloane Howell




Thank you so much for doing this interview with me. I am a huge fan of yours and I literally love every book of yours. I have yet to dislike anything that you have written. I think you are pure genius and I can't wait to see what your next project is. 

No problem at all.  I'm happy to answer any questions you have.  Thank you for the kind words and for reading my stories, although I think you may be being generous with the term "genius" but I'll be humble and accept the compliment.  Glad to be here and thanks for introducing me to your readers.





Where is your favorite place to write?  

Hah!  I mostly write in my recliner with a laptop.  At least with the first draft anyway.  I usually have reruns of some show playing in the background, right now it's How I Met Your Mother.  I can't have dead silence, I'd go crazy.  Once I'm editing I usually go to my office where I have two monitors.  I'm not really an adventurous writer though.  If I were writing about people banging while out in public I'd be nervous that someone's grandma was looking over my shoulder the whole time.  Even more frightening would be that it was turning her on.

What is the last book you read?  

The last book I read was 1984 by George Orwell.  I usually read it and Brave New World once every year.  I really wish I had more time to read, but I make myself read at least one book per month.  Damn toddlers keep you busy wanting food and attention!  They're so needy!  (kidding of course)

What is your favorite genere as an author?  

Well, I definitely enjoy writing erotic romances.  Love is a powerful thing and there is so much potential for conflict which is what really generates a good story.  People are complicated and nothing makes someone act more irrationally than love.  It makes the characters interesting and relatable.  The sex ain't bad either.  It's nice knowing that your words are getting someone heated up when they read your work.  I would be lying if I said I didn't love writing comedy though.  I usually try and mix a fair amount of it in (who doesn't love to laugh?).  I just love to write though and I'll be happy writing anything even if I end up a poor, penniless peasant living in a cardboard box.  Unfortunately, I'll have to wait until my kid is grown up before I can achieve the derelict lifestyle I've always dreamed of.  So I work a day job to pay the mortgage.

What is your favorite genre as a reader? 

I love to read science fiction and dystopian novels.  I love getting a glimpse of what an author thinks the future will look like, the world building, technologies, etc.  If I had to choose one genre that would probably be it.  But honestly, I love to read just about anything.  Give me a distinct voice, good characters, and a good plot and I am happy.

If you have 3 wishes what would they be?  

This is a tough question.  I'm assuming my first wish can't be to wish for a million wishes?  Right?  My first wish would be for my son to be healthy.  He has an autoinflammatory disease and once a month has fever episodes that sometimes last up to seven days.  He'll run fevers over 105 degrees during them.  It kills me every time it happens, knowing there is nothing I can do but comfort him.  In reality I would probably use all of my wishes on that one thing.  New York Times bestseller wouldn't be a bad second wish.  Being able to quit my day job and write full time would be a third.  The last would probably happen with wish two, but I wasn't given a strict set of rules to go by.  I over analyze things if you can't tell.  It's my cross to bear.

What is your favorite quote and why?  

My favorite quote, let me think...  I'm not a big quote person, but I know a few.  Probably "If you can't explain it to a 6-year-old, you don't understand it yourself." - Albert Einstein.  I think it's so true.  Many people bloviate about this and that or give pedantic (I'm doing it myself by using the word "pedantic"), elaborate, and often unnecessarily complicated explanations of things just to show off their intellect, or feel superior to someone.  I can usually tell if someone actually understands a concept by how easily they can explain the topic.  Usually the person who does the first is speaking on a subject matter they aren't an expert in and usually the most humble and quiet people are the ones who actually know what they're talking about.  They often give very simple but effective explanations.

How did you come up with The Panty Whisperer?  

Great question!  If I'm being honest I write under another pen name and was doing an interview with Hugh Howey.  I had asked him something along the lines of ways to be a more effective author.  He said to branch out of your comfort zone, write something you wouldn't usually write, challenge yourself.  So I figured, why not write some erotica?  It had never even occurred to me to try before.  I had read a few erotic romances so why not?  So I conjured up the idea of a short story where basically there is a guy whose talent is sleeping with women.  Not just getting notches on his bedpost, but a guy who has this innate need to pleasure women sexually, fulfill their fantasies.  Sure, the sex is great, but it's giving the women what they want that really does it for him, knowing they'll remember him the rest of their life.  Think back to him when their marriage gets dull later on or their sex life is in a rut.  The memory of being with him will be what drives them out of it.

I honestly didn't think much would come from it but I started getting messages on Twitter and emails from readers wanting more.  The erotica/romance crowd are voracious readers and I honestly fell in love with the readers and the genre.  So much so that it's primarily what I write now.  Who would of thought? 

What is your next project?  

Well, right now I'm just trying to fight for any time I can get to write the rest of The Panty Whisperer series.  I'm really enjoying writing it and if I don't give these readers something they may hunt me down and torture it out of me.  But I have a few ideas kicking around for a new series.  I'm a huge baseball fan so I've been thinking about some kind of series with a minor league baseball player who makes it to the big leagues and of course he has a love interest.  We'll see where it goes from there.

What advice would you give to an up and coming writer? 

Read, write, read some more, and keep writing.  If you're writing for the money, it's the wrong reason.  There are plenty of better ways to make some cash.  Hammer out that first draft and then polish the crap out of that turd until it's a diamond.  Never think you have it mastered, there is always something new to learn to make you better.

If you were stuck on a deserted island and you could only have 3 items what would those items be?  

You're making me think too hard.  I kid of course.  I would definitely want my laptop, a gun, and internet access.  Yeah, I could probably get by with those three things.









Coming July 28th!!!

Review: Coming to Hale: Hale Series Book 1 Volume 1 by Marie James



The only time she trusted someone with her heart, she was just a girl; he betrayed her and left her humiliated. Since then, Lorali Bennett has let that moment in time dictate her life.
Ian Hale, sexy as sin business mogul, has never had more than a passing interest in any particular woman, until a chance encounter with Lorali, leaves a lasting mark on him.
Their fast paced romance is one for the record books, but what will happen when Ian’s secrets come to light? Especially when those secrets will cost her everything she spent years trying to rebuild.
This is a standalone contemporary novel. The next book in the Hale series is Alexa and Garrett’s story: Begging for Hale.
Recommended for readers 18 and up due to strong language and explicit sexual content.

Amazon Link:

My 5 Star review

Ian Hale is this hot sexy business man that every woman wants and dreams about. Lorali Bennett is a woman who is always playing it safe and not up to stepping out of her comfort zone. Well that is until she literally runs into Ian Hale but she has no clue who he really is. The best part of Ian Hale is the whole Alpha male thing he has going on.
I really enjoyed this book and I couldn’t even put it down. I am officially all about Ian Hale. This storyline is perfect, cute, sexy, steamy, and romantic. A very easy read that will have you wanting so much more.

The ending was perfect but I will not tell you why... But I will say that I am in need of book 2 like right this second. Marie James congrats on your debut novel, very impressive!!
