Synopsis: After months of hiding their engagement to promote a farcical PR relationship tied to Cameron's new movie, Sarah is struggling to remind herself of the benefits of the plan – if only she can make it that long. Having just about reached their breaking point, Cameron proposes a romantic weekend away to re-connect with one another but their boss has a better idea: a two-week trip away from the prying eyes of Hollywood and the PR team’s aggressive gossip machine.
Once out of the Hollywood spotlight, Cameron reverts back to the loving, attentive man Sarah first fell in love with and idyllic days spent hiking, biking, and surfing lead to sensual nights wrapped in each other’s arms. But when a gossip columnist viciously pegs Sarah as “the other woman,” they’re forced to acknowledge the reality of their situation. Vowing to beat the studio at its own game, Sarah and Cameron openly flaunt their relationship, knowing their actions may mean giving up the careers they both love.
With help from some new friends along the way, Cameron and Sarah re-discover what matters most as they work to find their happily ever after.
*NOTE* This is the third and final part in the Her Confessional serial. Parts 1 & 2 must be read first before reading Part 3.

Purchase: AMAZON

Synopsis: Sarah Travers has had a really bad month. First, a drunken night of sex with her best friend – and the secret love of her life – Cameron Scott resulted in him freaking out on her and going MIA. That would have been bad enough but then her boss, a high-powered Hollywood director, cast Cameron as the lead in his new movie and put Sarah in charge of his publicity. On the bright side, it turns out she’s rather good at it - much to the chagrin of the studio’s PR team. Cameron’s back in the picture and he’s made some surprising confessions of his own, taking their relationship from the friend zone to so much more.
Now Sarah and Cameron are forced to deal with how their love for one another impacts their circle of friends and what it means for his career. With pressure from the studio to keep their relationship a secret, the two must figure out how to navigate not only the stresses of any new relationship, but also one under such a strong spotlight.

My 5 star review 


Wow! 

I will  be honest and tell you that I was not sure what to expect with Beauty and the biker. BUT Glenna Maynard took my favorite childhood story and turned it into my now favorite adult story. 

I mean Tristan is everything! He is hard, relentless, amazing, loving, caring, sexy, scary, demanding and so much more. There were times in this book that I wanted to kick his *ss because he was being a *ick. Then there were times that I wanted him to cut my dress off and have his way with me. 

This book will have you hanging onto even word. *ucking brilliant! I promise you. Hell I pouted when I got to the end because I didn't want it to be over. 

An adult fairytale at its finest! I love it!



About the Author:

Review for Every Love by LK Collins




Another masterpiece in the bestselling Every Soul Series, which ends beautifully. Follow Nate on his journey through finding love, risking it all, and having to finally face his PTSD in the end.
Post – Living in the after, the events that took place over a year ago are etched in my brain. Haunting me in the worst ways imaginable.
Traumatic – Physical and psychological scars have me so wounded that I can’t get through a day without my mind swirling with constant fucked up images.
Stress – Anxiety. Panic. Rage. I’m not myself and the pain I fight through each day has made me make some really bad decisions.
Disorder – Out of control. Not fucking normal. Nowhere even close.
I say fuck Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
The life I left behind is gone and everything I’d hoped to return to has been stolen away, all while I was being beaten, starved, and tortured. But being Nate Wilcox, I pick my ass up, ‘cause I’m a fucking survivor. Even if my methods are totally fucked up, it’s all I can do to keep the pain at bay.
***This book is an Erotic Romance novel and contains mature subject matter. It is not intended for those under 18 years of age. This book can be read as a stand alone.***

My 5 Star review


This book is all about Nate and let me tell you...this man...only in my mind! I won't go there because my mom reads my reviews....
So Nate got deployed and had to say goodbye to the love of his life. Then he was missing for a year but everyone thought he was dead. Then when he is finally able to come back home to the states he finds out that Arion the love of his life has moved on to someone else.
Nate struggles with PTSD and he sees a consular but also tries to deal with it in his in way. He has so much going on in his life. He has Arion still on the brain, then trying to cope with his inner self, and lastly his mother has MS.
Now that is a ton of *hit to deal with. Oh and did I mention he owns a gym too.
Then Nate finds love and clarity when he least expects it.
All three of these amazing stories will break you and then they will fix you. I was an emotional basket case while reading these books. You would think that these characters were real and they were my friends. Just ask my mother she can tell you....it was scary there for a second.
I am sad to say goodbye to this series but I do have to say that I am now complete and happy with everyone's ending. Now the best part is that this series will never be forgotten. Because it is that *ucking good!

LK Collins you rock! Please never stop doing what you do!

Merrick Thatcher went through a hell that no one could possibly imagine. He fought to protect his country, his family, and the men standing at his side, but it wasn’t just being a soldier overseas that changed him. He watched his friends die in front of him, felt indescribable pain, and lost his sight in the very same moment.
Badly injured, blind, and angry, he’s done with war, but now he’s fighting his own battle. So, he’s waiting for it to end, spending his days and nights in a thick darkness no light can penetrate. Until Grace walks into his life and his broken eyes open to a woman that changes everything for him.
A story about two flawed souls finding love amidst the grief. A love that shines vividly, even in the dark, and discovering that sometimes being broken is how the light gets in.
For readers 18+ due to language, violence, and sexual situations


DONATION: Special Operations Warrior Foundation
Like many other foundations, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides assistance to injured soldiers as well as their families. SOWF also focuses on one of the most important challenges those families face; ‘getting to their hospitalized loved ones as quickly as possible’. With grants immediately provided to the family, they can travel to be bedside with their loved one, especially for those crucial first days. SOWF also provides a scholarship program, family services (including clinical social workers, scholarship counselors, and family services counselors). With on-going support and helpful counseling to all families of fallen members in every branch of the military, they are able to help in all the ways that count. The SOWF was highly recommended to me by a recent veteran who served in Iraq. Therefore, I am thrilled to be able to help them in any way possible. Every little bit counts.

Author Bio:
I live in Morgan, Utah with my husband, beautiful daughter, and a couple of spoiled pups. If I’m not deeply involved in writing my next book, then I’m probably reading in the safety and quiet of my closet. I love yoga – which I now practice regularly – playing hide and seek with my daughter (only to have my hiding spots revealed by one of the pups), and I love Fruit by the Foot, Twizzlers and Peace Tea. These are great ways to bribe me into revealing secrets about what’s to come.
I have an unhealthy obsession with Supernatural, The Walking Dead, and The Big Bang Theory. I also enjoy talking about them, so if you like them, too, come find me.
Writing has become an enormous part of my life and every book I write holds a special place in my heart.  If you read one of my books, I hope you have the same experience.

Review for Every Heart by LK Collins



Love hurts. 

Life hurts. 

But without the pain, there is no bliss.

I found bliss. 

Then it was all taken away. 

And though it hurt like hell to move on, I had to. 

I learned to love again only because of Bain.

I found my bliss again.

Then in a split second, everything was put into jeopardy.

My world crashed down around me and this time I was faced with the hardest decision of my life, a decision I never dreamt of making. 

A choice that seemed impossible.

With no good outcome.

That would hurt everyone I loved no matter what I did.

I didn’t want to make it. I couldn’t choose between my two loves.
So I fought the decision with everything I had, avoiding it until…
I was forced to decide.

My 5 Star Review

I can tell you now that I was starting to lose my shit while reading this second book. I mean first thank you for the heart stopping cliff hanger in book one...
Then when I am thinking that this will blow over and all will be good in my world she up and leaves him. Says she needs space/time!! Now I get that I truly do but really...I had to take a freaking Xanax while reading this book, really I did.
This book....no this series has honestly consumed my everything. I mean I need these characters to last. I need them to get better. LK Collins is making me needy and I am not a needy woman. Well at least I wasn’t until I started this Series.
So I know what happens but I am keeping my lips closed because you need to read it for yourself. I need you to experience all of the emotions that I got to endure. I swear it is all worth it.

Now I will not lie I am scared to start book three. I mean Every Soul broke me...Every Heart consumed me....so what in the hell is Every Love going to do to me.

Review for Every Soul by LK Collins



#1 Best Seller in Erotic Suspense When you lose the one person who grounds your existence, your whole world changes. In life, it is said that everything happens for a reason. If that’s true, how can you explain death? Especially when it happens to someone so young, so beautiful, and so innocent? My name is Bain Adams, and I struggle with these thoughts every day. I’ve been through hell and back, somehow surviving the unimaginable. My sister took her life six months ago, and now, what’s left is a shell of the man I once was, a shadow of the person I used to be. Do I miss that life? Absolutely. But I miss her more, every day. I pray time will ease the pain and help my suffering while I search for the answers…but so far, nothing. Happiness is something I knew so long ago, and now it’s nothing but a faint, distant recollection of the life I once had. My name is Arion LaSalle, and seven months ago my life was shredded to pieces when my fiancĂ© disappeared while deployed. He never came home, burning a hindrance of pain and agony within my soul. For so long, I lived my life believing everything happens for a reason, until now. ‘Cause none of it makes any sense. Why Nate? Why only him? Since getting through each breath is a struggle, I put on a fake persona, pretending I’m someone I’m not, living my life recklessly. Because for me, it was all taken far too soon.

My 5 star review

This book is on a whole new level for me. I knew I was going to love this book for the very first line on the very first page.
You have a young college student who commits suicide. You have a hot as *uck college basketball star. Then you have a young woman who lost the only man she ever loved.
This book is about 3 different people who two of them share the same blood and the other not so much.
It is insane how amazing this book was. Everything comes together and fits perfectly.
Bain the hot college basket star loses his sister Kinsey who happens takes her own life and he truly believes someone killed her. He is so focused on finding out the truth he turns to pills to help kill the anxiety and the reality of life.
Arion losing the only man she ever loves turns to sex. No feeling. No emotions. Just sex! She will never let herself get close to another man again. She could never do that to Nate.
Then Arion sees Bain at a bar one night and let's just say things happen in a dark alley. Then their paths happen to cross again…
Now there is so much going on in this book. Again 3 different people! Three different point of views! One amazing story.
This story will break your heart. Then the characters will walk you through healing your heart as you read their amazing story.
Then when you least expect it there is a huge *ucking boom and the author leaves you with the worst what the *uck face you will ever have!
Yes folks that is my current facial expression. I am sitting here saying hell to the mother loving no! She can't do this to me...to us...to them
Yup!!! I am that emotionally involved in this series. Holy mother of pearl....hold me because I am jumping into book two right now.
Wish me luck!

LK Collins no one should ever doubt you. Your talent is beyond words. I want to grab a pumpkin spice latte and just sit across from you and grill you about this story. Without a doubt these characters will leave a stamp in your heart.
