Blog Tour: When You Were Mine by Jordan Marie























I loved a boy.




Gavin Lodge.




He was sweet, gentle, kind and he made me feel alive.




Letting him go was the hardest thing I ever had to do in my life.




A hundred times I wished I had done things differently.




A thousand times I wished I had gone with him.




A million times I wished he had chosen me.




I didn’t. Neither did he.




Now he’s back.




No longer a boy, but a man.




I can’t love him.




It almost destroyed me once and I won’t let that happen again.




That should be the end of it.




And maybe it would have been…




If someone wasn’t trying to kill me…











“Luna, I didn’t know. I swear to you, I. Did. Not. Know.

“How is that even possible, Gavin? Your signature was on those papers. My father told me what you said—”

“Whatever your father told you was a lie. I had no idea, Luna. You have to believe me, if I did, I would have been back here by your side in a heartbeat.”

“I don’t have to believe you. We’re not back in high school, Gavin. I’m not longer the young, naïve girl blinded by her first crush—”

“You loved me Luna. There was no fucking crush. At least admit to that. We loved each other.”

“We were young and stupid.”

“And we loved each other,” he says and for some reason it feels like those words are a physical hit, my body even jolts in reaction.










REVIEW

When You Were Mine isn't your usual second chance romance story but a second chance story with a few extra twists.

Gavin and Luna's story takes you on quite the journey, lots of history there, lots of pain and emotions, and the past
isn't even all of it. I really enjoyed how the author dug us right in with the hurt between these two.
Of course there's deep emotion there, they shared so much and had no real closure.

I really enjoyed getting to know these characters and understanding the decisions they made and the role they played
in their past. Gavin was a good guy, a good guy who maybe didn't always think things out, but had the best of intentions and Luna
is a woman who's been through a lot and made some tough choices herself.

The addition of the danger lurking, the mystery of it all just really added a different element to the connection these two had and
how that connection has changed over the years. I found myself lost in this story, trying to put together all the pieces myself and hoping
for a happy ending. This book made my heart race at points, my mind work overtime trying to determine what would come next.

Release Blitz: Raphael by Tillie Cole

































They are the Fallen. A brotherhood of murderers whose nature compels them to kill. But guided by their leader, Gabriel, the Fallen have learned to use their urges to rid the world of those it is better off without.




For Raphael, sex and death are intertwined. Where there is one, there must be the other. He is a lust killer, luring his victims with the face of an angel and a body built for sin.




And Raphael lives to sin.




His newest mission takes him into the sadistic underworld of Boston’s secret sex clubs, and puts him face to face with his greatest fantasy made flesh.




Maria is everything he’s ever dreamed of, the kill he’s always longed for. She’s not his target. And he knows he must resist. But the temptation is too strong…




Yet Raphael is not the only one with a mission. Maria is not quite what she seems. And as her secrets and Raphael’s unravel, Maria begins to question everything she thought she knew—about evil, about the place she calls home, and about the beautiful sinner she was sent to destroy.




Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and topics some may find triggering. Recommended for age 18 years and up.




The Fallen: Genesis a prequel novella in The Deadly Virtues Series and MUST be read before RAPHAEL (DV: book one).











“Are you ready, child?”

Maria nodded at Father Quinn, trying not to fall into the black well of despair. She had crawled out of the abyss once. She wasn’t sure she had the strength to do so again.

He checked his watch. “It’s past midnight. The club will be brimming with carnal sinners. Do you have your cards?” Maria checked in her purse for the ID card the priests had supplied her with and the card that allowed her into the club. Father Murray told her no questions would be asked of her—it was club policy. “Keep that purse with you at all times. And press that button when you see him, or if you feel you are in danger.” Maria nodded again. Her voice was silent as she mentally prepared for what was about to happen.

Maria made for the door, but Father Quinn stopped her with his hand on her arm. She spun around, and Father Quinn pushed a rosary into her hand. Maria had left hers at the convent for safekeeping. She missed the beads as they slipped through her hands in prayer. “Keep this with you, Maria. Do not wear it around your neck or have it where anyone will see. But keep it with you for courage. To know the Lord and Mother Mary are with you.” As soon as the rosary was dropped into her palm, peace filled her. She looked at the new rosary in her hand and studied the red beads and ornate silver cross, Jesus hanging on the crucifix, redeeming mankind’s sins. On closer inspection, Maria noticed a miniscule “B” carved into Jesus’s chest. “It’s beautiful,” she whispered. “But what does the ‘B’ stand for?”

Father Quinn’s eyes flashed with something she couldn’t understand. But he quickly recovered enough to say, “I was told it was originally to represent the Boston archdiocese.” Maria nodded, although she was surprised she had never seen such a design before. Father Quinn laid a hand on her shoulder. Maria froze. She wasn’t comfortable being touched. Especially by a man. Father Quinn leaned in close. “But I like to think it stands for ‘Baptist.’ As in John the Baptist. The man whose sacrifice paved the way for Jesus to save all mankind.”

Maria let those words wash over her. “I like that too,” she replied and kept the rosary in her hand. She turned to the door and, without looking back, stepped out into the hallway and began her mission.

In the privacy of the elevator that would take her to the hotel’s foyer, Maria tucked the rosary into her left bra strap. If she couldn’t wear it publicly, she would wear it as close to her heart as she could manage.

Her legs were jelly as she crossed the marble floor of the lobby and walked on unsteady feet out into the frigid Boston winter. The club was only a few yards away. Keeping her head held high, she played her part as best she could. Feigning confidence had been the greatest challenge so far. Maria was used to keeping her eyes to the ground, hands clasped in constant prayer. Her hands were not linked, but she could still find peace in her faith. Hail Mary, full of grace, Maria prayed silently in her mind as she approached the liquor store. She walked through the automatic doors and headed to the back room, praying she had the entrance right. A steep staircase awaited her on the other side. A large man stood at the bottom of it. Maria handed him her cards as he looked her up and down with a salacious smirk on his face. Handing back the cards, he opened the gate that allowed her to pass upstairs.

Maria heard the music from inside pulsing against the walls. She clutched her purse tightly. Maria had never been to a club before. Before she was taken by William Bridge she had been too young. When she was freed, she pledged herself to the church. Maria was sheltered in a way most twenty-one-year-olds were not. Normally, she was thankful. Right now, she wished she had some prior knowledge of what she was walking into.

Ignoring her shaking hand, Maria opened the door to the club and almost stumbled at the sight that greeted her. She froze on seeing a woman tied to a wooden stake in the center of the room, bound by leather straps and metal chains. She was naked but for a strip of black material in her mouth . . . and there was a man, dressed in a three-piece suit, flogging her with a thin leather strap. Even over the blasting music, Maria heard the strap lashing, marring the woman’s skin. There was even blood. But what disturbed Maria more was the look of ecstasy on her face.

Maria could barely breathe. There wasn’t a part of her that was functioning as it should. Her breathing and heartbeat were too quick. Her eyes were too wide and her mouth was dry in shock.

What was this place? Maria wanted to run.

Review Blitz: Letters to Molly by Devney Perry









Molly Alcott didn’t expect to open her mailbox one summer morning and find an old letter stuffed between bills and a supermarket flyer. Penned in familiar handwriting, dated over fifteen years ago, the letter was written to Molly after her first date with the man she’ll never forget.

Week after week, new letters appear. Each marks an event in the history of their epic love affair. Each heals a wound. Each holds the confession of the man who still owns Molly’s heart.

The letters are full of promise, hope and love, but truth be told, Molly wishes she could unread them all.

Because the man who wrote these letters is not the one sending them.











REVIEW

Letters to Molly is book two in the Maysen Jar series, and it was quite the unexpected journey.  It's a second chance romance unlike any other I've read and yet it's also not. You'll have to read the book to understand what I mean by that. 

Molly and Finn have been divorced for years and they've finally found a way to co-parent and work with each other for their kids. But their feelings still remain in some ways and when Molly starts receiving letters Finn wrote years ago when their relationship began, emotions are stirred once again.  But Finn isn't the one sending the letters so the two are left trying to figure out who is. 

As the letters keep arriving, each one brings to the fore things from the past, arguments, good times, bad times and everything in between and with the words of each letter, Molly finds herself finally glimpsing a different side of Finn. 

Letters To Molly is a story full of emotions, raw, real emotions and the way we react to them.  This story adds a depth to the facets of what it takes to make a marriage that most don't and it explores things a lot of books ignore, all while making us feel the love Molly and Finn shared and seeing how that's changed over the years.

Cover Reveal: Make Me by Lani Lynn Vale















Royal St. James got her name when she was born. Not because her mother loved her royally, but because Royal was a giant pain in the ass. She’s spent her entire life fighting to live, and the last thing she needs is to deal with some pretty-boy police officer who wouldn’t know a hardship if it came up and bit him in the…you know.

Justice Rector wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He was raised to work hard and always fight for what he believed in. His father was a cop, and ever since he could remember, he wanted to be one, too.

It was a complete coincidence that he ends up going undercover and meeting Royal St. James. It was just one day, a single moment in time. All routine.

Just do the buy, make the bust, and get out.

But Royal St. James, aptly named, screws everything up. Royally.
All of a sudden, he has a decision to make: blow his cover and save the girl, or save himself.

Of course, he does the most stupid thing possible.

By saving the girl who most assuredly did not want to be saved.

Release Blitz: Parallel by Elizabeth Roark







Time is a cruel thief…unless you can steal it back.

As a neurologist, Nick Reilly believes everything can be explained by science.

But he can't explain her—Quinn Stewart, an irresistible patient who knows things about him she shouldn't. And insists that at some point, she was his wife.

Something else he can't explain: he remembers her too.
Quinn wakes each morning remembering new details of the life they shared—and she's desperate for the dreams to stop. Because with each one, she finds herself craving what she had with Nick more than the life—and the fiancé—she already has.

Nick and Quinn share an attraction neither can deny, but one that might destroy everything.

Just like it did before.















The stunning conclusion to Parallel.

Someone has torn them apart in the past, and she plans to do it again…

As Nick and Quinn piece together the truth about the life they once shared, they discover it was much deeper and darker than they ever imagined. In order to keep history from repeating, Quinn will need to master her unusual gifts—but that means admitting to herself and to Nick why she stopped using them in the first place.

He may never forgive her when he learns the truth, but Quinn is running out of options—because the clock is ticking, and it’s no longer just her life that hangs in the balance.
