Cover Reveal + Giveaway: TIGHT by Alessandra Torre

Tight by Alessandra Torre on Early 2015 Goodreads Genres: Erotica, Romance Tight – Standalone I was happy in my small town. In my life as a single, thirty-two year old woman. I had a good job, wonderful friends, my independence. I also hadn’t been laid in three years. Hadn’t been on a date in two. Had stopped counting calories and wearing makeup… a while ago. Then Brett Jacobs waltzed in. Caressed my thigh, dug rough fingers into my hair, lowered his soft mouth to my skin, took sexual control of my mind and stirred it all around with what he packed in his pants. He flipped my quiet life upside down and crawled into a place in my heart I thought was dead. The issues? His secret. Her. The fact that I don’t even know she exists, and he thinks she’s dead. Everything is about to hit the fan and […]

Blog Tour+Excerpt+Review: Law of Moses by Amy Harmon

Blog Tour+Excerpt+Review: Law of Moses by Amy Harmon

The Law of Moses by Amy Harmon on 2014 Buy on Amazon Goodreads Pages: 333 If I tell you right up front, right in the beginning that I lost him, it will be easier for you to bear. You will know it’s coming, and it will hurt. But you’ll be able to prepare. Someone found him in a laundry basket at the Quick Wash, wrapped in a towel, a few hours old and close to death. They called him Baby Moses when they shared his story on the ten o’clock news – the little baby left in a basket at a dingy Laundromat, born to a crack addict and expected to have all sorts of problems. I imagined the crack baby, Moses, having a giant crack that ran down his body, like he’d been broken at birth. I knew that wasn’t what the term meant, but the image stuck in […]

Keepin’ It Real #1

Keepin’ It Real #1

We are trying out this new feature called KEEPIN IT REAL. Just gives us a chance to put some of our thoughts out there. We are finding we don’t want to be just a promotional/reviewing blog. We want it to be more personable. We love to talk books and all that goes on in the book world. Most of the time we stay far away from the crazy stuff. But there are topics we find we want to chat about or even just get it out there, so here we go… This post is a way of me being real with you. Ok…here it is. *deep breath*    *chug my blue moon* I am SUPER DUPER insecure about writing. I’ve always been. In school I hated English class. I would ace all my math classes, but could never get into finding my way in writing. Fast forward some years (how many […]
