BK1 Betrayal E-Book Cover

One week. No future. No past. No more.

Alexandria Collins has one week to live carefree—no ghosts of her past or pressures of her future haunting her. Reinventing herself as "Charli," she is knocked off her feet by a sexy, mysterious man who brings her pleasure like she never imagined. With her heart at stake, she forgets that decisions made in the dark of night reappear in the bright light of day.

"Some of my tastes are unique. They aren’t for everyone. I understand that.”

Lennox "Nox" Demetri is wealthy, confident, and decisive—he knows what he wants. From the first time he sees Charli at an exclusive resort, he knows he wants her. Although he is usually the one to make the rules, together they agree on one:

One week. No more.

When betrayal comes from those closest to Alexandria, she must decide how far she is willing to go to survive. Choices are not always easy, especially when they involve the heart, body, and soul. After all, Infidelity is a business, and some rules are meant to be broken.

"Is it really cheating if you're doing it to yourself?"

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a sexy, new dominant hero who knows what he wants, and a strong-willed heroine who has plans of her own. With classic Aleatha Romig twists, turns, deceptions, and devotions, this new epic dark romance will have readers swooning one minute and screaming the next. Have you been Aleatha'd?

BETRAYAL is a full-length novel and the first of five in the INFIDELITY series.

REVIEW - Carlos' Peace - Melissa Haag

Carlos' Peace (Judgement of the Six Companion Series Book 5) by [Haag, Melissa]

Title: Carlos' Peace

Author: Melissa Haag


Carlos has spent his entire life avoiding attachments to individuals and has devoted his time to protecting his race. His childhood taught him that something is out there, threatening the existence of werewolves, and he will let nothing interfere with his vendetta to stop the threat. 

Physical attachment and vendetta collide when he sees Isabelle. She’s meant to be his Mate and instinct demands that he protect her above all else. However, letting go of his past is as impossible as embracing a future filled with love. Isabelle wants nothing to do with him, except fight with him. Carlos must find a way through her emotional armor and hope, together, they can heal and face the threat.


This was my most anticipated book of the year and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. If you are reading this review and you have not started Melissa Haags Judgement of six series, STOP NOW and go back and read the series it is truly amazing and without it a lot of this book might seem confusing. With that disclaimer out of the way, I absolutely LOVED THIS BOOK. Carlos has been my favorite character since we really got to meet him in Discontent. He always intrigued me before, but this book really made him come forth as my favorite book boyfriend.

The plot of this book follows along with Discontent and the series, but reveals more through the story. This book also has a little plot of its own. I don’t want to say much about it because I feel it reveals too much, but let me just say I was shocked! Truly shocked by what was going on in Carlos’s head. This man really has a lot going on and then to be able to add more to his plate with Isabelle, he is an inspiration. This plot shows that and that there is always more to a person than what is perceived by others.

This is when I usually talk about character development. In Discontent, we see minor character development with Carlos. This book really shows how much he keeps inside. He developed quite a bit without others noticing as much. What I hope others see from this book is that Carlos has a big heart and wants to do what is best for others over himself. I love this about him. I loved his interactions with Grey as well. It felt like Grey’s interactions with Thomas when he was younger. I truly feel Grey is a father figure to these wolves as an elder.

There is a lot of buildup in this book between these two characters. It is like a simmering relationship that is meant to explode. We can see minor explosions along the way, but in the end these two feed each other’s fire. Now with being in a guy’s mind, things are always a bit hotter than when reading it from a female’s point of view. I loved reading about how little things Isabelle did would torture Carlos. I think that this was wonderful.

I have always loved the writing style in these books. I actually really enjoy the single point of view. We get to read the story from one person’s point of view, then go back and read it from the mates point of view. I think it is important to know that while the timeline is similar, these companion book are truly their own books. While the bones of the plot remain similar, Carlos has such a unique point of view to add to the story. He also has some mystery to him that is revealed in this book. I think Melissa is amazing to be able to write pretty much the same book while making them seem like two different and entertaining books.

In conclusion, this will probably be my favorite book of the series. I know we still have one to go, but I just feel like Carlos is my soulmate. I felt like reading things from his point of view just made me fall in love with him even more. Gosh I just cannot get over him. I would 100% recommend this book to others and have already done so. I cannot wait for the last book in this series even though it will be bittersweet to see this magnificent series end.

Release Day Blitz - Mack Daddy - Penelope Ward

mack daddy available


From New York Times bestselling author, Penelope Ward, comes a sexy, STANDALONE second-chance romance.

They called him Mack Daddy. No, seriously, his name was Mack. Short for Mackenzie. Thus, the nickname. Perfect, right?

So was he: perfect. The perfect physical male specimen.

At the private school where I taught, Mack Morrison was the only man around in a sea of women.

Everyone wanted a piece of the hot single father of the sweet little boy.

I was riddled with jealousy, because they didn’t know that—to me—he was much more.

They didn’t know about our past.

He’d chosen my school for his son on purpose, because Mack and I, we had unfinished business.

As my friend Lorelai so eloquently put it: “Unfinished business between two people who are clearly attracted to each other is like an eternal case of blue balls.” And I was suffering in pain from my case.

I was still intensely attracted to Mack. I tried to resist him, immersing myself further into a relationship with another man just to protect my heart.

Not to mention, getting involved with a parent was strictly against school rules. But seeing Mack day in and day out was breaking me down.

And soon I might be breaking all the rules.

Author's note – Told in alternating points of view, Mack Daddy is a full-length standalone novel.

iBooks | Nook  |  Kobo

Mack Daddy is live and on limited-time release sale for $3.99
 (Changing to $4.99 after release. This will be the ONLY sale.) 

Meet single dad, Mack, in this sexy, STANDALONE second-chance romance.

Release Blitz & Review - Choosing Forever - Mia Kayla

Choosing Forever (Torn Duet #2) by Mia Kayla
Release Date: February 13, 2017

Life is made up of choices.
Single choices like bricks laid out in a path. A path that leads to your future.

At twenty four years old, I would have never guessed I would be stuck between two men—two men from opposite spectrums of the universe.
Their lives, their worlds, their demeanor is as different as the darkest of nights and the lightest of days.

I love them both, but I have to choose.
There is only one choice I can make.
And I choose forever.

Choosing Forever… This book right here??? Yeah it emotionally damaged me…. IN the BEST possible way. I literally lost sleep over this book. After I was finished reading it I had such a huge book hangover that I tossed and turned for two and a half hours before I could settle down and fall asleep. Even then, I think I must have had dreams about the book because I did not feel I slept a wink. This book made me laugh and cry. My heart filled with joy and pain. Honestly one of the best books I have read in a really long time.

This book is book two in this series. Read my review for Torn Between Two for more information on the first book. You absolutely have to read the first book in order to follow the events in this book. The plot of this book is the same as the first as it is following the same timeline. If you read the first book, don’t worry. The cliffy Mia left us with is quickly discussed. I can’t really say much more about the plot because I am afraid of ruining the surprise for readers. Just go read it already.

Now the characters, they are a mess. This is wonderful for me. I feel these characters were so realistic that I could actually imagine them being real people or friends of mine. Their issues are so down to earth that I never once felt that this story was too far fetched. That is saying a lot since there is a rockstar involved. All the characters in this book are developed nicely and I believe the author did a really good job with writing them.

There is some heat in this book and not all of it is just sex. There are some really great scenes showing the building emotional tension between characters that made my belly fill with butterflies. I felt I was falling right along with the characters. I also might need to divorce my husband for a certain hunky wonderful character. If only he were real *sigh*. Of course the sex scenes are just as equally as hot and not overabundant so that it feels forced.

Lastly, the writing style is wonderful. I think I said this before in my first review, but I do not read single point of views a lot. This book showed me that if an author is able to write in a realistic way, a single point of view book can really make you feel like you took on the role of the character. This book did this for me. I was so emotionally invested in this book that I cried with the characters and felt my own heart break at times. I also want to commend the author on taking on some serious topics and real life situations in this book. I honestly think she did a wonderful job and I feel the message she is trying to send is that until you have been in a similar situation, you can never fully understand what a person is going through. You also should not judge them based on it because you do not know what is going through your mind.

Overall, so far this is my favorite book of the year. While I might or might not find another who will take the number one spot, this book will for sure be in my top reads of the year. I would 100% recommend this to my friends. I hope they cry just as much as I did.
