10 synopsis

The book that Pearl Series fans have been asking for: the flip side of the tale. The story according to Alexandre Chevalier.

At only twenty-five, Alexandre Chevalier is a billionaire. His social media site, HookedUp, is more popular than Twitter, more global than Facebook. With his drop-dead gorgeous looks, alluring charm and wealth, he has women falling at his feet, desperate for his attention. But his heart is set on only one woman: Pearl Robinson.

Alexandre’s dark and dysfunctional past makes him crave stability and a normal relationship, but he soon finds out that Pearl is a bird with a broken wing. Why, he isn’t sure.

Pearl, follows Arianne Richmonde’s bestselling books in The Pearl Trilogy: Shades of Pearl, Shadows of Pearl and Shimmers of Pearl; the tumultuous and heart-rending love story between forty-year-old documentary producer, Pearl Robinson, and French Internet billionaire, Alexandre Chevalier, fifteen years her junior.

Pearl is written from Alexandre’s point of view from the moment they first meet on a rainy summer’s day in a coffee shop in New York City.

In any relationship details are hidden; things are left unsaid. Not all conversations are remembered in the same way. And not all actions are disclosed—especially to the one you love most.

This book (Part 1 of 2) is approximately 53,000 words long, just over 200 printed pages. Part 2 is scheduled for release in October.

Because of Alexandre Chevalier’s prowess in the bedroom, this novel contains erotic content and strong language. Intended for readers aged 18 and over.

Review
(I did put that it was part of a series…and technically I would say that it is. BUT I am not exactly sure how she is going to order it, I put that it would be number 4. That only is because I believe that all 3 of the other books should be read first to really appreciate this book, to really understand what is going on and not feel lost.)

I know that for me I have come to understand that when reading a book that is redone in another point of view, I will more than likely feel disappointed because it just feels like I am reading the same book all over again.

This book did have a few of those moments where I felt like okay I read this already. BUT that is just going to happen because well it is the book redone in another point of view, therefore we will get parts of the first book since well it is the original. I did have time since I had read the first book so I didn’t get that much. I did absolutely enjoy his point of view. We get to see how he was thinking as well as SO many other things that were going on when he wasn’t with Pearl. I do have to say although we did get parts that were in the first book but there is so much more in this one. So much that helps to explain why he is the way he is with her.

Once again there was drama! Oh how I was looking forward to that! I would have to say that I was not disappointed in that. But how it ended?! Oh my! I already knew I didn’t like a certain someone because of book two. But man!! Oh it was good I thought! I am usually not a huge fan of rewrites of books even if it is from another point of view because like I said it is repetitive. Then I run into a hand full of authors who just do it so well. I would have to say that she would be one of them! I was hesitant to read this only because I have read some that just were a big disappointment this to me was not!

I am looking forward to the next just to see how things go down on his side. I know how things happened with her, and there are parts of the books where we go without seeing him for a while. So it will be fun to learn what goes on in those times! I am very intrigued and happy that I came across this series. Thanks to someone who sent me a message asking me when the third book was coming out. That is all it took. 🙂

Blog Tour ~ Rock My Bed by Michelle A. Valentine

*click on cover pic for amazon link*

Book: Rock My Bed

Author: Michelle A. Valentine

Series: Black Falcon #2

goodreads-badge-add-black-38px

10 synopsis

Everything always seems to fall into place for twenty-four year-old Aubrey Jenson, except for when it comes to her luck with men. Bad boys always draw her in and crush her heart, and Black Falcon’s lead guitarist, Riff, is no exception. After sharing a few wild nights together, she leaves him behind, knowing a guy like Riff isn’t the relationship type, merely just a play thing.

When she returns to New York, she tries to get the passion she felt in Riff’s arms out of her head by dating Isaac, a successful representative at Center Stage Marketing. Just when she thinks she’s forgotten Riff, she’s forced to see him again when her best friend, Lanie, ropes her into being a bridesmaid for her upcoming wedding to Black Falcon front man, Noel.

Sparks fly instantly between Aubrey and Riff when they’re forced to reunite, and suddenly she finds herself caught between the man that’s good for her and the one who completely rocks her in every way.

Review

I was so excited for this one! I loved Riff from the get go! I knew he was something special! I was not disappointed at all! I loved everything about this one. I also loved how it was the first book pretty much but showing you what happened when we saw the small parts of him in the first book. I LOVE when books do that to be honest. It fills in that need to know, “what the hell happened with so & so” now you don’t have to wonder so much about what happened with him, because we get to see. 🙂 I love his forwardness, and vulgar talk. (okay to others it may be vulgar, I call it sweet talk 😉 ) for example:

“Let me have just one night to fuck you senseless. I guarantee I’ll have you speaking in tongues before the nights through.”

I can only agree with Aubrey when she says:

“There’s just something about him that screams naughty sex on a stick,”

That is exactly what I thought when I read about him! Naughty sex, and well who could go wrong with that? But then we get to see into the heart of him. Just a little. He does let us see his softer side. Explains why Oreo’s are so damn important to him and why he will kill someone over them! There is quite a bit that we do get to learn about him. Which made me fall more in love with his broken spirit! We get to see that he is not this rock god, he is a normal person with issues just like the next person. He does act like a complete asshole at one point and I wanted to reach into my iPad and just slap him and tell him “STOP BEING AN IDIOT”. Michelle has made me fall even more in love with a fictional character that I loved to begin with and I do have to say that we BETTER get a novella for him also! Lol Yes I won’t be happy till I can get me another Riff fix!!  I cannot wait to see where things go from here for Riff and Aubrey. There is a lot he has to work on and through.

I did feel like it was WAY too short, that may be in part that since I love me some Riff I never seem to get enough and this was NOT enough! I finished and wanted to call Michelle and tell her okay now I got questions and want answers…  I know it won’t be the last we hear of him since we still have Tyke and Trip to go and I know he will be in the background of those since they are all in a band together and all. But I did feel like there were some things that were touched on, but didn’t get the closure I wanted on them…like his father. So that just MUST mean she is going to do a novella right? Well either way I will be keeping my eye out for a new Michelle Valentine book! I have yet to come across one of her books that I haven’t liked yet.

Some of my favorite Quotes:

  • Kitten, I’m the baddest, bad-boy you’ll ever need.
  • It’s cute you want to play dominatrix with me, but babe, it really isn’t necessary. I’ve fucking wanted you from the moment I laid eyes on you.
  • You were never that to me. I can’t explain it but right from the start I knew you were special. Theirs something about you that pulls me in.
  • Your mouth said no, but your body said yes.

interview

I am so excited, I get to go and see Riff again. I am sure he won’t remember me since well, now that he is with Aubrey all girls in the world have disappeared and blurred into the background. I am sure we won’t have a repeat of our last interview. Just thinking about it makes me smile! I figured that this time meeting him where there is no alcohol around would be best. I turn into an instant slut it seems like once I start drinking. And I am not one to try and move in on another woman’s man so I think it is best to just keep the alcohol out of it for now. He suggested that we meet back in his hotel room, I am not sure if Aubrey is going to be there with him, it would be fun to actually meet the one who captured the mighty Riff.

The cab stops in front of the hotel and I pay my fare, then get out and head in. I go up to the front desk and ask if they could call his room and let him know that I am on my way up. I know we had a set time and all but I wanted to just make sure he gets a heads up. Even though this is the third time I am going to be seeing him I still get the butterflies and sweaty palms. I stand outside his room. I reach into my purse and grab a piece of gum. Nothing worse than talking to someone with some foul breath. Been there done that. I knock and wait for him to answer. I knock again and then hear him yell out that he is coming. The door opens and I can’t help but flush as memories come flooding in.  He opens the door with just a pair of pants on, his hair is wet and he is barefoot. I swear there is nothing more attractive than a man in just jeans and nothing else… add covered in tattoos and a few piercings. Oh my word. I catch myself staring and I hear him laugh.

B ~ Hey you, how ya doing? Sorry, didn’t mean to stare but I forgot how hot you are. *smiling*

R ~ *Laughs* I remember you! Too bad I’m off the market now. You were a lot of fun.

He steps aside and lets me in. I look around and try to see if Aubrey is here but I don’t see her or hear her so I am guessing she is out for now. He asks if I want anything to drink I ask for water and he grabs himself a beer and goes to sit on the couch and then he pats the couch and tells me to park it so we can get started.

B ~ Well then I am guessin you want to get this over with so lets get to it then. So you are my absolute favorite, if you couldn’t tell. There is just something special about you I don’t know what exactly it is, that is until we get to see a softer side to you. I knew that I loved you for a reason. First I have to say that I loved the Cat and Mouse game. So at what point did you know what you felt for her was more than what you were really comfortable with?

R ~ When she started asking about my family. I knew then she was trying to get to know me as a person and wanted to go deeper than the fun we were having.

B ~ Your dad, let me just say I wanted to beat his ass. So I do hope that he stays gone! Do you believe that now he will?

R ~ I hope so because I’m fucking done with his shit.

B ~ Well I hope he does too,  so what was your real reason as to why you told Lane about what was going on with Noel and Sophie? I mean I wanted to believe it was because you truly didn’t want to see her get hurt but at the same time I can’t help but believe that you just wanted to piss him off.

R ~ *Nods* Pissing him off was part of it. He deserved to be miserable.

B ~ I know you had said that Trip and Tyke knew about your past but have you told Noel everything? I noticed that you had talked about how the twins were there and helped you through it all but you never said anything about Noel knowing.

R ~ *Shakes head* He knows, but not the details like Trip and Tyke do. I would prefer to keep that shit under wraps.

B ~ Okay… Sex… have to say that I loved the kinky little session you guys had! So have you guys added to your collection?

R ~ *Grins Wickedly* We did. We dove into some food play.

B ~ Ohhh food play is HOT! But then ANYTHING with you is HOT! *winks* What happens when you are a bad boy? *blushing from the memories that come to mind*

R ~ *Sets eyes on Brandy* I think you already know the answer to that one.

tumblr_mbj3x4YkzB1rv4rpmo1_400

B ~ *clearing throat* So the whole Oreo Cookies thing to be honest I thought it was kind of a sexual reference with the whole cream in the middle stuff *laughing* learning what it was truly about just warmed my heart and made me fall even more in love with you. Are you still lethal when it comes to sharing your cookies or are you getting better at sharing? Sharing is caring you know. *winking at him*

R ~ I’m working on sharing and opening up more. It’s a hard fucking stretch for me, though,

B ~ It will get easier in time. Okay Aubrey’s boss… tell us how you really felt about him… *laughing*

R ~ That Ken doll fucker better pray I don’t see him again.

B ~ Well I can’t wait to hear more about you, you are a bit of an addiction to me. *winking* oh crap I almost forgot I wasn’t sure if your girl was going to be here or not but since she isn’t I will just give it to you.

Reaching into my purse I grab out a jewelry box and hand it over to him. He opens it and smiles.

B ~ I have one of my own. I had to buy it because I just can’t look at Oreos without thinking of you. After finding out why you love them so I had to get one for her too. She is a lucky girl. I know you may not see it but she absolutely is!

oreo

R ~ *Looks up from the box with a smile* Thank you. I’m working on that.

B ~ Well I will let you go, until next time, sweetie pie.

R ~ *Hugs Brandy* Thank you. Always a pleasure….

We both stand and walk towards the door. I stop and turn towards him and can’t help myself.

B ~ I don’t know if I ever thanked you after our last interview. Dessert was ‘devine’ *smirking*

I stand up on my tip toes wrap my arms around him to give him a hug, pull away and kiss the corner of his mouth then step back. I don’t want to make him uncomfortable. I am not trying to get in his pants, ‘this time’.  

R ~ *laughs* You were my most memorable interview.

Blog Tour ~ Interview with Collin ~ Ember’s Curse by Gena D. Lutz

I have been lucky to have read this book before I was asked to participate in this Blog Tour. Of course I said yes I would love to help get her book out there.  I do love a good paranormal book and I am usually afraid to start a new series because, well, they can very easily get cheesy and I didn’t know anyone who had read it so I couldn’t ask their opinions. I took a chance and jumped in and let me say for me I am glad that I did I enjoyed it a lot and it reminded me as to why I LOVE paranormal books. Action, Love, Hotness, Werewolves, Vampires, Nymphs.. there was so much to love about it as far as I was concerned.

You can read my review on the book –> HERE

I also posted the pictures she used as her inspiration for the book –> HERE

I was lucky enough to be able to get an interview with Collin, and Ember stops by.

Interview Time:

I walk into Haven and cant help but feel his presence. I instantly spot him and smile because well I am nervous as hell. I want to just touch him! He is so hot and I know if Ember were here she would probably want to rip my throat out for thinking what I am so I need to be good, that means NO DRINKING! I make my way over to him, he stands and smiles. God this man is just yummy. I walk up to him and take a deep breath.

Taylor-Kinney-24

B ~ “Hey Collin, I’m Brandy.”

He reaches out to shake my hand and I place my hand in his. So warm, I just wanna hug him and stay there. Okay I need to remember Ember will kill me for thinking these things! I am just so excited to meet him! 

tumblr_mgweaa8Byw1romekvo1_250

B ~ “Thanks for taking time to sit with me. I am sure you have a lot of things you must have to do with the pack and getting things taken care of and in order. So let me go ahead and get started.” 

Collin ~ “It’s cool. I have a few minutes to kill before Ember gets here.”

B ~ “Okay so I know I loved you right from the get go plus you are hot so that doesn’t hurt! The minute you saw Ember what did you thinking before everything happened or did you have a chance to think anything?”

Collin ~ “Man. It’s hard to put what happened to us into words. Meeting her literally knocked me on my ass. But my very first thought after seeing her beautiful face was…I am now the luckiest man in the world.”

Man if I couldn’t have loved him more I just fell a little more the minute he said that. I wanna keep him! Okay it is a damn good thing that he can not read what is going on in my head. Damn it I can feel my face turning red time to get back on track! 

tumblr_mbj3x4YkzB1rv4rpmo1_400

B ~ “I get that werewolves are territorial but what do you do when you have women throw themselves at you? I mean it has to happen on a daily basis, you do own a mirror so you must know how hot you are!”

Collin ~ “That’s not really an issue. Everyone knows who my mate is. She is an alpha wolf…the little she-wolves wisely keep their distance.”

There is no way in hell I would live very long being in a pack with this man. I would so do dirty things to him! *my eyes wonder down his body. I hear him clear his throat* Dang it I did it again. Stay focused woman! 

tumblr_m80415tkl31rc7aobo7_250

B ~ “How the hell did you stay so calm in so many crazy situations?”

Collin ~ “When you are a leader of wolves you must stay in control at all times. Any sign of weakness and your pack loses faith in you. I guess staying calm in heated situations has become a survival instinct.”

 

B ~ “What is your absolute weakness when it comes to Ember?” 

Collin ~ “There’s this little thing she does with her tongue when we are… Oh, I should probably keep this PG.”

B ~ “Oh damn…please don’t!! I would love to hear what turns you on!” *I cant hid the grin I have on my face* Damn it Brandy… you so could have pulled that out of him! your loosing your touch woman! I knew I should have had a drink that always loosens me up! Just when it was getting good too!  Dang it why, why did he stop??

WhyWouldYouDoThat

B ~ “Any little ones planned for the future?”

Collin ~ “I want a house full of little rug rats. Ember growls at me every time I mention the possibility, she is going to take a little convincing.”

B ~ “When you met Dane what did you first think? That kid stole my heart instantly!” 

Collin ~ “I thought he was a pretty tough kid for what he had been through. He earned my respect immediately. Most men I know aren’t as brave. He is now my son and I love him deeply.”

Ohhh that look he has in his eyes melts my heart I wonder if Dane knows how lucky he is to have the love that Collin has for him anyone can see he would do anything for that kid. 

tumblr_lisz4gso9F1qftfk7

B ~ “How do you feel about Ember being in the position she is now?” 

Before he gets to answer that question Ember walks in and over to him. The love they have for each other could never be questioned that is for sure. I can see it in both their eyes. And it makes me envious.

Ember Stilwell ~ Prime Werewolf Vampire

B ~ “Hi Ember I didn’t if I was going to be able to see you before I finished up with our man Collin here. I was asking him how he felt about you being in the position you are in now with your pack.”

Ember ~ “Who’s man? You might want to veer back over into your own lane girl. I have crazy road rage.”

I can’t help but smile I lover her no bullshit attitude. And as dangerous as it probably is I kind of want to see how far I can push her. Her and I are looking at each other we both turn away when we hear Collin clear his throat. *evil grin*

tumblr_mexaohMGn71rxwarf

Collin ~ “I was about to tell her that your pack is lucky to have you and I couldn’t be more proud.”

B ~ “Well one last question and since you’re here now Ember is here now I would love to know your answer also, I just need to know. The whole being able to know what each other is thinking how handy is that during sex?” 

 

Ember ~ Grrrrrrrr….

haha I couldn’t stop the image that came to my mind. and giggled.

Chihuahua growling

Collin ~ “I guess that’s the end of the questions.”   

B ~ “But…but…” *sighing* “fine, I knew I should have asked this one before she got here.” 

I look up and see the deadly stare from Ember and know I need to just stop “poking the wolf” I can’t help but laugh at myself for that pun. I look up and Collin now has an eyebrow raised almost like he is amused over the little display of jealousy Ember is emitting. It isn’t my fault I’m so funny! 

tumblr_inline_mh1mfthYpU1rzcjgk

B ~ “Well thank you for your time even though the best question was cut short. It was nice meeting you Collin, as well as getting the opportunity to say hello to you Ember.” 

I stand from my seat and make my way to where they are standing next to each other. Ember puts her hand out and I know I want to hug Collin before I leave so I just reach out and hug her, I figure she cant get too upset since I am hugging her also. Right?!  I release her and immediately wrap my arms around Collin before she can object and cannot help the moan that escapes from me. He isn’t exactly hugging me back I think he is completely dumbfounded right now but I don’t care. He smells so damn good! I know she is going to want to kill me but this is worth it!

Guild-glomp

Ember ~ “Three seconds. That’s all the time you get to take your little paws off of him. And that’s only because I kind of like your spunk. 1…2…”

I reluctantly let go of Collin, I cant help but smile though. I would so have fun hangin out with her! I wave bye to them but when I turn to walk out I run into a hard chest. I step back and look up into the face of none other then Milo.. oh he is so good looking up close and personal. I swear I am not a slut I think laughing to myself. I smile and say hi. I hear Ember behind me mumble something to Collin and he laughs. I introduce myself and ask if he happens to be coming or going because I need a ride since I took a taxi here.

600full-josh-holloway

Milo ~ “Sure gorgeous. As long as you don’t mind riding on the back of a bike.”

B ~ “I don’t mind at all as long as you don’t mind my legs and arms wrapped around you.”

Milo ~ “I wouldn’t consider that an imposition. You’ll have to watch out for my little lady Mojo here though. She likes to bite.”

B ~ *grinning and biting my lip* “So do I” *running my finger along his arm*

tumblr_m6qe00yDyj1rtvb1so1_500

Looking back one last time I yell out as I walk to the door. 

B ~ “Later bitches”.  Swatting Milo on the ass as I walk past him.

Gena D. Lutz’ Prime Wolf Series Character Inspiration

Here is the list of her character inspiration!

She has told me when I asked about it that:

I searched for the images after I saw them come alive in my mind…Collin was the toughest. Declan was the easiest…his personality shone through from the beginning. Harpers also. Tegan gradually built but she was tough from the start.

As she comes across more I will add them!

Teasers for Entice by Ella Frank

Here is the Cover for the second book Entice… along with some teasers, as she posts them I will add them here.

entice-final-2felix-titling-font

Blurb:

What if everything you think you want isn’t what you actually need…

Dr. Shelly Monroe is a woman who doesn’t shy away from going after what she wants, but lately good sex has been hard to find. Shelly’s become increasingly frustrated with the men she’s been dating and the men she believes are the right choice.
Joshua Daniels is certainly not even close to the right choice. In fact he is exactly the wrong choice. For one thing, he’s Mason Langley’s best friend and best man. Second he’s too much of a risky complication for Shelly to even consider.
Then why can’t she stop thinking about how delicious he looked that first night she met him at Exquisite? Why is it so imperative to keep her lusty desire for a man that doesn’t meet her preconceived mold hidden from Lena and Mason, her trusted friends?

It seems unreasonable that being with a man completely wrong in theory could somehow feel so right. Then why is it the more she sees him the more enticing he becomes?

lkj                                     Josh                                               Shelly

Trailer for Entice

Teaser 1

“Move your hand Shelly.” he managed.

He watched her eyes spark with mischief and then she started to move her hand up his leg toward his throbbing hard on.

“Not there.” he told her through clenched teeth. “Move your hand away from me or we’re going to have an accident.”

The grin he got was full of sex and promises as she leaned up squeezing his thigh and put her mouth next to his ear.

“Find a Motel.”

Teaser 2

Feeling a grin on her mouth she lowered her voice, “Do you always look like you just got out of a woman’s bed?”

The phone went quiet and the silence was so thick it was hard to hear his words as they slid through the phone and into her ear.

“Is that how I look?”

Groaning softly, Shelly let her eyes fall closed thinking about how sexy Josh Daniels was.  Everything about him appealed to her and right now she wished he was in her bed on top of her.

A new deal? Did she really want to do this?

“Shelly?” he asked in a voice that was designed to seduce.

“Yes, that’s how you look. You always look like you just rolled out of some woman’s bed who had her hands tunneled through your long hair hanging on for dear life,” she paused and then tacked on the end, “and to answer your question, no I’m not always perfectly put together. I’m not right now.”

Teaser 3 

“Getting in some early morning cardio?” Shelly asked with a raised brow.

She watched as Mason strolled forward in some low riding sweats and a white t-shirt, and placed a hand on Lena’s shoulder.

“I was trying, but she’s conserving all her strength for you.” he told Shelly with a smirk.

Poking her tongue out at him Shelly strolled into the loft, “Lucky me.”

Stopping at the kitchen she noticed the usual OJ sitting on the counter and picked it up to take a sip. “Oh Mason! Forget Lena, come live with me and squeeze my oranges.”

Mason let out a loud laugh, as Lena punched her lightly on the arm.

“That did not sound right,” Lena muttered, “He better not squeeze anything of anybody’s, except mine.”

Smiling, Shelly took another sip and shrugged, “Hey it was worth a shot.”

“Yeah well you can forget it. The chef, the playboy and the charmer is all mine.”

“Ahh, ladies? I’m still in the room. Although I have to tell you, being fought over is kind of hot. Can you maybe start pulling hair? Ripping clothes?” Mason pretended to look around as he opened the fridge, “I’m sure I can find some jello for you to both roll in.”

Teaser 4

Silence fell around the table as everyone turned to face Rachel, who was now looking at Josh with a huge grin plastered on her face.

Josh shook his head and raised a hand to run it through his hair. “You’re a pain in the ass Rach.” He muttered.

“Why? It’s true. You and Mason had girls lining up to date you, and every weekend they had a different girl with them.” she paused and then laughed, ‘They were all morons.”

When Roger turned to pass her the bowl of pasta, Shelly scooped some out and then handed it to Mason. She then looked at Josh who was sitting silently shaking his head, so she asked.

“Is that what turns you on in a woman Josh?”

His eyes snapped up and locked on hers. “Not lately.”

The whole table went silent and Shelly felt her stomach tighten. She was about to speak up to break the awkward moment and ask what had changed, when Mason broke the tension instead.

“Nope. Josh told me he’s looking for a girl who is sweet and kind. A proper little angel.”

Shelly arched a brow, really? Now that was interesting. She watched as Josh flipped Mason off.

“Screw you, man. Is nothing sacred?”

“Not around here.” Mason finished, shoveling food in his mouth with his mischievous eyes now on her.

Teaser 5

Rachel moved around from behind Lena and shook her head as she looked Shelly over.

“No.” she told her pointedly.

“No?” Shelly questioned, looking down at her flirty pink skirt and black strappy top. “What’s wrong with it?”

Rachel rolled her eyes shaking her head.  She was dressed tonight in skin-tight, black, leather pants and a black halter neck top that had no back to it. Her dark hair was pulled up in a tight high ponytail and the purple tips were brushing the nape of her neck.
As Rachel walked around her, Shelly noticed for the first time a wicked looking tattoo running vertical along the length of her spine, disappearing beneath leather pants as far as Shelly could tell.
Shelly looked over to Lena, mouth open, and her friend shook her head.

“I didn’t know she had it either.” Lena paused and then chuckled, “She has a whole bunch. We were looking on the way over here.”

Shelly turned back to look at Rachel who was still frowning at her and asked again.
“What do you mean no?”

“You look like you’re going to a high school dance.” Rachel told her with a smirk.

Shelly tried not to be offended but decided if Rachel was going to turn up looking like the sexiest version of a goth dominatrix, she needed a drink to deal with the fashion advice.
Most of the time Shelly was the one handing out the opinions, however tonight it appeared she was completely out of her depth.
Moving to the kitchen Shelly poured them all a lemon drop martini and then handed it to the girls looking back at goth Barbie in the corner.

“Well I’m sorry I don’t know how to dress appropriately for a place called, Whip Me.”

Lena laughed as Rachel raised a brow, “It’s Whipped Monroe, and don’t be so quick to judge.”

Teaser 6 

Rolling his eyes at his friend Josh nodded. “Yeah. Don’t tell me you haven’t noticed. The first thing she did when we met was size me up like her next meal.”

That set his friend off again. Mason was laughing so hard he had tears coming out his eyes.

“Ah man! Don’t you remember when we were in high school and we’d kill for a girl to look at us like that, and now you’re acting like a horrified virgin.” Mason grinned, “Which I know you’re not.”

“Shut the hell up, Casanova.” Josh threw at him.

Mason’s mouth snapped shut and he glared at him. “Alright, who told you?” Shaking his head Mason narrowed his eyes, “Forget it I know. Rachel’s a dead woman.”

Teaser 7

You’re late.” She watched as he brought his arm up and looked at his watch, and then he dropped it back down by his side and sauntered into the room.

“Not by my watch.” He moved around the chair that sat facing her, and leaned across the desk, “Want to check doctor?”

She reached out and grabbed his thick wrist tugging him further over the desk. He placed his other hand flat down on the top of the glossy surface to brace himself, as she looked at his watch. It did in fact have 2:00 p.m. on the readout.

Raising her eyes to his, she saw him quirk an eyebrow up and then he asked.

“What was going to be my punishment?” then he paused as she sat back in her chair. He straightened and took a seat in the chair opposite her and the desk.

Shelly looked at him, sitting across from her with his legs spread and his hands resting on his jean clad thighs and told him bluntly.

“I was going to send you away.” He seemed to think that over and then nodded once.

“Sure you were.”

Shelly cocked her head to the side and then stood. She watched his eyes track her as she rounded the desk and came to stand in front of it. Leaning back she rested her butt up against the edge, looking down at him.

“You don’t think I would’ve?” she questioned as she let her eyes fall down to those spread legs and the expanding bulge in between. “My time is very valuable. Especially around here.”

He tilted his head to the side and then let those deep brown eyes track down her scrubs before they came back up to rest on her face.

“Oh I believe it. You’re a doctor, this is a hospital. Of course you’re valuable. Which makes me wonder if you brought me down here to tease, or to deliver?”


Interview with Michelle A. Valentine and the guys from Black Falcon + Giveaway

Michelle is going to be riding up with the guys here to my neck of the woods (she needed a break from the Ohio weather) to head to a show in San Jose coming from San Diego they are picking her up in LA at the airport. I told her she HAS have the driver take them up the 101 to the 1. The drive will be longer because it is kind of a detour but the views will be worth it! I sent her directions as to where I wanted to meet up with her. I mean who wouldn’t love to meet up on a beach to do an interview?
The day comes and I get ready. I decide to pack up an ice chest full of ‘goodies’ because well that is what you do when you go to the beach. 🙂 load it into the back of my car and head out. I pull in the parking area and wait. I picked this place because it is out of the way and off the beaten path so they wont be bombarded with crazed fans and they can just have a little fun at the beach for a while. I look up and see the big bus pulling up. YAY! I am so excited that I am going to be able to meet the guys. But I need to focus because right now it is about Michelle… or at least at first that is what this is about!! The weather is clear and the sun is out but there is a cool breeze. I just love Moss Landing.

beach

(The door opens and I head over to see Michelle step out.)

Hi, I’m Brandy, I am so glad you were able to make this stop so I can pick your brain. I’m glad the clouds are not out today! (I cant stop myself from trying to look around her into the bus, she raises her eyebrow and smirks, I look at her and feel embaraced. Okay its about her right now get it together woman!) Yeah so we kind of have to walk up that little hill right there (I say pointing in the direction of the beach) then we can sit and enjoy the beach and chit-chat… oh and well I brought an ice chest with some goodies and snacks in it, but there is NO way I am going to be able to carry it up and over that… maybe you have some ‘guys’ who can help?? (I say with a grin and trying again to look around her into the bus)

(She laughs at me and tells me that the guys are all still sleeping because well they are lazy but told me to give her my keys and she handed them over to the driver and told him to let the guys know when they get up that there is an ice chest they need to carry over to the beach and that we were going to head over there because we are not going to wait for them. I can’t hide the small pout that come across my face. But we head up and over the hill to the wide-open and empty beach. I look over at her and smile because she looks like she is taking in every thing around her and enjoying it. I ask how her drive was up the 1 and she shows me some photos that she took. She seems to be thankful for the small detour because of the views along the drive. We find a spot take off our shoes and sit down. I reach in my bag-in all the extra stuff I grabbed that didn’t need to go in the ice chest I found my notes with the questions I had for her, grabbing that as well as a pen out I decide to get started.)

I have seen that you are a nurse who has a love for a tat covered rock stars –who doesn’t by the way- what type of nurse are you?

Tatted up men are yummy, aren’t they! I am a pediatric special needs nurse. My job is pretty awesome. Not only do I help the kids, but I get to have fun with them. The field is really rewarding.

What was your favorite part to write?

Let’s see…my favorite part has to be the beginning. I love when Noel is a cocky asshole. I’m always drawn to men like that—the bad boy who takes what he wants. Noel totally fits that bill in the beginning of the novel.

How many books will there be total I saw you had two listed on your website will there be more then that? And what will the next one be about? –saw you post that Riff is going to get a book do the twins get their own too or is it going to be a shared one?

There will be a total of four books in the series, along with, hopefully, four novellas. I want the books to be from the heroine’s point of view, while we follow up with the couple from the hero’s point of view in the novella. I may also do a spin-off novel for Striker and his band Embrace the Darkness if I feel brave enough to try an entire novel with a hero who has a British accent.

Who have you been inspired by?

Musically, I am inspired by hard-rock. Those musicians put everything into their music, and live it as a lifestyle. As far as writing inspiration goes, Young adult literature has impacted me a ton. Authors like Stephanie Meyer, Simone Elkeles, Melissa Marr, Richelle Mead, Claudia Grey, and my all time favorite Rachel Hawthorne have molded me as a writer.

Okay if you had to pick one of the guys to be with who would it be? (don’t know if I could make that decision because I don’t know enough about Riff and the twins… but you.. well you know ALL about them don’t cha? 🙂 but have to say something about Riff has gotten me)

Noel and Riff are both very deep guys. It would be a hard choice between those two for me. Noel has had some major drama in his life, but Riff has really been through some shit. Both have struggled, and yet wear their hearts on their sleeves. But I have to say Riff won a spot in my heart when I met him and he told me all about his Golden Tickets. Still, I don’t think I could choose between the two.

Do you listen to music as you write or do you need it completely silent?

I AWLAYS have music on. Silence distracts me more then anything.

Okay so when I read a book I act like a crazed person and go on a hunt for pictures of the people and well my husband has seen some of the guys that I have saved pictures of on my computer and just looks at me and says REALLY?? What does your hubby say about all the hotness that you surround yourself with when you have to get in the “ZONE”?

Ha! That’s awesome! My husband is just kind of used to it, I think. He just rolls his eyes and goes on about his day. He’s seen me at rock shows with real rockers in action. I don’t think he’s shocked to see I go gah-gah over tatted up men.

What do you prefer? e-reader or books? (I love both the but prefer an actual book to hold when it all comes down to it but an e-reader you can carry hundreds of books in a small space!)

I used to buck the idea of e-readers…thought I’d miss paper too much, but honestly, I like my e-reader more now. Gasp! I know. It’s so easy to carry around and I can have as many books with me as I want.

How did you come up with the names of the guys? I mean I get Riff since he plays the guitar, and we get to find out what his real name is right –in his book?

I’m a very random person. I seriously think of things on a whim. The guys’ names are no exception. I pulled Noel’s name from the show Felicity. Noel was always my favorite guy on that show. Riff was named because he played guitar, like you said, and Tyke came from someone I kind of know. Trip was totally random, but I liked it and thought it fit.

Do you have any hobbies you enjoy doing –other then writing?

I am a music freak. I go to hard-rock shows as much as I can. I’m going to hit up a Marilyn Manson concert next month. But other than that, I really enjoy party planning, decorating cakes, drawing, reading, movies and all the time I can get with my family.

How have your personal experiences effected your writing? I saw you say you have actually been to Rock on the Range. So you know first hand how it is so writing about it should make it easier I would think.

Oh yeah, definitely. Rock on the Range is like Christmas for me and my husband. We go every year. Rock music is a culture in itself. The look, the tattoos, everything is an artist expression and I love it. My dad was a musician, along with my brothers. I was raised around music and I learned very early on it’s a very powerful thing.

How do you write? Do you go from start to finish or mix it up and jump around?

I usually write straight through, let my critique partners Emily Snow, Kelli Maine and Katie Ashley read it and tell me how I need to change it around. From that point the mixing up and jumping around starts. For instance, in the very first version of Rock the Heart, Noel was sweet from the beginning and they were having sex by chapter two. Chapter one was the concert scene, and instead of the “Ball Busting Bitch” line he asked her to meet him on the dock, and the second chapter was the dock scene where they actually had sex on the dock.

What do you do when you get ‘writers block’ to help get the writing flowin again? I would think a good orgasm would do the job!

Ha! You would think! Most of the time it takes me getting out of the house and doing something totally non-writing related.

What is one of the most ridiculous things that has ever happened to you?

Gah! That’s a really hard one to disclose without going into lengthy detail and giving away the names of the innocent. LOL Maybe I better just keep that my secret. 😉

(As she finishes up answering that last question we can hear hollerin going on and it is getting louder so I know it HAS to be the guys headed our way. My stomach gets into knots and start to get all excited like a little fan girl. I am going to get to meet Black Falcon!!! Inside I am jumping up and down and ready to flash them and throw my panties at them. But on the outside I have to keep it together I don’t want to come off as a groupie. I look over at Michelle and she laughs at me, I guess I am not hiding it as well as I thought I was. Great!! This is gonna be great if I stay this transparent. I need a drink (yes it helps calm me down and loosen me up. okay I can do without the loose but I need to calm down) But the bottles of alcohol I brought are in the ice chest. I am looking out at the water because I refuse to look back watching and wait for them like a puppy. I see in the corner of my eye my blue ice chest being sat down. I turn my head and see the twins one on each side of the chest. Ohh sweet Jesus they are just so freaking yummy! Ohh to have one in front of me and one behind, (get your head out of the gutter)… They smile…oh god and here we go -start the waterworks- thank god they can not hear what I am thinking..and I stand with Michelle so I can introduce myself to the guys but have to squeeze my thighs together to bring down the pulsing between my legs. Aww hell and this is just two of them. Riff and Noel come up over the hill a few seconds later. Got to say I am with Lane on Riff he is attractive but if I had to choose on looks alone I might just have to go with the twins. (I don’t have to pick just one do I? They are a package deal right??) They all meet up and look around at the completely empty beach and smile. I think they like it! I HOPE they like it.)

Hi guys I’m Brandy I am so glad you were able to make a stop here. I love this place and since Michelle said she likes the beach I thought it would be perfect for you all to enjoy for the day. (okay I need to stop rambling they are all looking at me like they want to laugh. I am sure they are used to dealing with women like this. I have to keep telling myself to KEEP YOUR SHIRT ON! NO FLASHING!!)

*Riff totally checks out Brandy*

(I totally see Riff looking at me, oh all that is holly okay I take back my earlier statement I WANT Riff) Thanks so much for carrying the ice chest up and over that hill there was no way in hell I was going to be able to do it I was able to get it to my car but that was about it. Matter of fact I need a little somethin’ from it right now. You boys want a little dranky drank?? Michelle? But shhhh not supposed to have alcohol or glass bottles. (I walk over to my bag and pull out a bunch of red plastic cups and cant help but smile…as I see the bag of oreos I got in there.)

(Riff walks over to the ice chest to see what is inside and sees a small container of milk and looks confused I can’t help but giggle. But anyway I hear a Hell Yeah…and see him pull up a bottle then another. Then I hear someone say… SHOTS! Oh lovely the last time I drank shots was at another interview I did and it didn’t go over as smooth as I wanted. But it sure was fun so what the hell! We all do a few shots and I am starting to relax then Riff makes me a drink. Okay time to get started…)

So how exactly did you all meet up and decide to form a band?

Riff: *leans into Brandy* You don’t really want to hear that lame story, do you? Everyone knows we met up in a bar playing separate gigs. I’d much rather get to the good questions I know you got for me. *Riff bites his pierced lip*

(OOOOMMMMMGGGG I think I just about orgasmed! What the hell cant I just jump him right here right now???!!!)

Okay boys what do you first notice or love about a girl? And no it can not be her “cookie”!! (yes that is what I call it the ‘vajayjay’ so maybe that is why I am secretly in love with Riff because he loves cookies so much! Haha)

Riff: I’m a leg man, myself. Long slender legs like you have *Rakes his eyes down Brandy’s body and grins*…well, that gets me every time.

Trip: Since I can’t say cookies, can I just say tits?

Tyke: *smacks his brother in the back of the head* Smooth, moron!

(Hahaha okay I can not help myself from laughing at Trip. But I cant stop myself from looking over at Riff and smiling. Thank god for gymnastics in highschool my legs have always been one of my favorite body part! :))

So I would have to say that Michelle is doing a great job writing your stories even though we have only gotten Noel I can not wait for the others. Are you okay with how she is portraying you all?

Noel: I can say, personally, I think she’s doing a kick-ass job. Lane got a little pissed she told you guys so much detail about our sex-life, but hey, I’m not complaining. When I read it, I thought it was fucking hot.

Well Noel I would have to say that many of us readers would have to agree it was pretty hot!!

So who IS the sex god?

Noel: *grins* I proudly claim that title, although I’m a committed one-woman man now.

Okay Riff what is it about Oreo’s?

Riff: *smirks at Brandy* I love licking the cream between the cookies.

(Oh sweet lord this man is going to kill me! I am literally going to pass out and just die!)

Why do you like women who play hard to get?

Riff: Women who play hard to get are fucking hot. I don’t want a chick that’s the fucking town door knob.

(Damn it I need to play hard to get, stop melting at everything he does!)

What is the kinkiest thing you have done?

*They all look back and forth at each other before turning back to Brandy. In unison they say, no comment and then laugh.*

(Well cant blame a girl for tryin. I am sure they are some good stories!)

So Trip and Tyke…all women want to know…okay well maybe its just me but do you share women, or is menage not your fortay? And by menage I mean you two and a girl not two girls and one of you. Lol

Trip: *Grins* We’ve been known to share once in awhile.

(can not wait to hopefully hear about one of them experiances in the future. At this point I think we need a quick break I am feeling a tad buzzed how sad am I? They are all fine and functioning I on the other hand need some food in me.)

Okay guys I need some food in me before those shots completely put me over the edge and thanks Riff for this drink you made but its freaking strong so I need some food! So sandwiches!! Turkey, sound good cuz if not then ya gonna have to starve!? So you boys go play for a little while and we will make the sandwiches…

(They barely let me finish before they took off all running toward to the water I wanted to laugh, damn it why didn’t I bring my camera!? I will kick myself for that for the rest of my life. Okay time to start sandwiches!)

Okay Michelle time to get started on these sandwiches. (I look over at her and she is just staring at me. I ask what’s the matter she laughs and lets me know how much she enjoys being volunteered to do work because she lets me know we have to make more then just one for each of them. Oh JOY! So I take this time to ask more questions.)

So what exactly made you decide to do these books? I mean I saw that you have a love for rock stars but why them?

I don’t know. Noel and Lane have been in my head for a couple years, but when I got the idea I was writing YA and didn’t really know how to make it fit into the genre I was writing at the time. Noel just really stuck with me and I fell in love with him as I wrote.

Which one of the guys is your favorite? I won’t tell! Lol

I can’t possibly choose a favorite child. A mother loves all of her children equally.

So Missy, do you have tattoos and piercings?

I have tats. I plan on getting more. Piercings only in my ears, as a nurse everything I get has to be concealed.

So have you ever made it backstage at a concert and got some one on one time with a rock star??

Yes, and yes! I’ve hung out with a couple rock bands before and being back stage isn’t all that glamorous. LOL

Who was the first concert you ever went to?

Hank Williams Jr and Lynyrd Skynyrd when I was about six or seven. LOL Score one for having bad-ass parents teaching me right from the jump!

(After using all of the bread it looks like we are feeding an army. They come back and practically inhale the food. I pulled out the seeds, fruit, and go to my bag and grab the cookies out also. And head back over to where everyone is siting on the blankets. And put everything down then go grab the milk out and the extra cups.)
Okay so I can see some of the tats you guys have so do they all have special meaning? What would be the one most important one?

Riff: Tattoos are my worst addiction. There’s over thirty in all. This one. *Pulls up shirt and shows his chest* The one over my heart is my favorite. It’s my sister Anna’s name. She died in a car crash we were in as kids. It means the most to me. *pulls shirt back down*

Noel: The one on my back, the cross, is for faith. I believe you have to have it in all aspects of the unknown. The star on my shoulder I got when I signed my first record deal. It was my lame attempt to remind me someday I’d be a star and prove everybody wrong about me. Those are the two that mean the most to me.

(Oh how I want to lick those tats on Riff. Taking mental photos for later!)

And well a follow up…what piercings do you boys have?? (I cant help but grin because yes my mind is in the gutter! I NEED to know if we have prince alberts or apas! Haha)

Riff: Piercing, yeah, I’ve got a few. One here. *Points to bottom lip* And, of course you just saw that both of my nipples are done.

Trip: I’ve got a lady-pleasing piercing! *Wiggles his eyebrows*

(oh lawd, I giggle and turn a little red.)

Any fetishes?? The women of the world want to know what your sexual weaknesses are!

Riff: Guess you’ll have to wait until ROCK MY BED to find out about that, because I’m not spilling that secret now. *winks*

Well love how about you just show me… (I smile and wink back at him. oh this is why I try not to drink it comepltely removes my filter!)

So Noel and Riff, things better now between you guys?

*Noel and Riff look at each other*
Noel: Yeah, we’re good.

Trip and Tyke, you guys seem to be pretty quiet keep to yourselves I may be wrong, so tell me what is the craziest things you guys have done?

Trip: I’m majorly into extreme spots. I sky drive as much as I can.
Tyke: We’re just waiting our turn to tell our story.

And last but not least a would you rather: would you rather be a girl with a dick or a guy with a poonany? Lol

Noel: *Raises eyebrows* What the fuck? Um, neither. *rest of the guys laugh and agree*

Thank you guys and Michelle for taking the time to visit with me it was AWESOME! (I move my hair into a messy pony tail and I look over at Riff and watch him as his face breaks into a wide grin. That was why I wore these earings! I shyly smile back then turn away. Hard to get is what he will get haha) now lets go build a sand castle!

Tidal by Emily Snow –> Release 12/7/12

The author of Devoured has a new stand alone book coming out in December. (this is not connected to Devoured)

She has posted the first two chapters on her website so you can go read and see if it is something you would like to add to your list of books!

Here is the blurb…

Now that Willow Avery is out of rehab, she’s got one chance left to prove herself before she’s officially on every director’s shit list. At least, that’s what her parents and agent are claiming. She doesn’t really give a damn if she never makes another movie or not—she just wants to get on with her life, get back to her friends, and find her next escape. But Willow is broke. And whether she likes it or not, acting is the only job she knows how to do.

When she accepts the lead in a beach drama, Willow finds herself in Hawaii. And in Hawaii, she finds Cooper, the gorgeous surfer hired to train her for her new role. With the bluest eyes she’s ever seen and the sexiest Australian accent she’s ever heard, Cooper’s different from the men she’s used to. He doesn’t want to use her. And he refuses to let her fail. But when an old friend re-enters Willow’s life—a friend whose toxicity she’s been drawn to time and time before and whose presence brings about the painful memories she’s tried so hard to suppress—Willow will have to choose between the girl she was and the person she’s becoming. The lifestyle that helps her forget the pain and the man she’s falling hard for.

She has also posted her picks for Willow and Cooper! 🙂

Characters of Devoured according to Emily Snow

I have not yet read this book but when I was looking at her website I saw that she had some pictures posted of her ‘cast’ and thought I would share it.

If you have not read the book just yet she has the first chapter posted HERE on her website so you can go see if it might be something you would want to read.

Here is the trailer for the book!

She also has a playlist posted.

There’s something about finding that perfect song for certain scenes that can really make characters jump off the page, and I often find myself mentally creating song lists when I’m reading books by my favorite authors, too. Here’s a look at what I listened to while writing:

1. “Bad Romance” by Halestorm
2. “Wicked Game” by Stone Sour
3. “Addicted” by Saving Abel
4. “Lollipop” by Framing Hanley
5. “Toxic” by Britney Spears or Static Lullaby (depended on my mood for the day!)
6. “Paradise” by Coldplay
7. “Last to Know” by Three Days Grace
8. “Love Hurts” by Incubus
9. “Bad Girlfriend” by Theory of a Deadman
10. “Birthday Cake” by Rihanna
11. “The Promise” by In This Moment
12. “Leave the Lights On” by Meiko
13. “Take Me Under” by Three Days Grace
14. “Built for Sin” by Framing Hanley

Up and Coming –> Music of the Heart by Katie Ashley

The book does not release until March 25, 2013 … but like I said before I am a sucker for rockers!!! I saw on Katie’s website  the pictures for her inspiration for the book as well as a teaser… so here is another to add to your list because it has been added to mine.

Music of the Heart 

16062210

Blurb:

For Abby Renard, the plan was supposed to be simple—join her brothers’ band on the last leg of their summer tour and decide if she’s finally ready for the limelight by becoming its fourth member. Of course, she never imagined stumbling onto the wrong tour bus at Rock Nation would accidentally land her in the bed of Jake Slater, the notorious womanizing lead singer of Runaway Train. When he mistakes her for one of his groupie’s, Abby quickly lets him know she sure as hell isn’t in his bed on purpose.

Jake Slater never imagined the angel who fell into his bed would resist his charms by promptly kneeing him in the balls. Of course, the fact she seems like a prissy choir girl makes her anything but his type. So he is more than surprised when after betting Abby she wouldn’t last a week on their tour bus, she is more than willing to prove him wrong. But as Jake’s personal life begins to implode around him, he finds an unlikely ally in Abby. He’s never met a woman he can talk to, joke with, or most importantly make music with.

As the week starts comes to a close, neither Abby nor Jake is ready to let go. Can a sweetheart Country songstress and a bad boy of Rock N Roll actually have a future together?

To see the teasers or this one I have them posted HERE (I got them from her website)

Tara Sivec’s Dream Cast for the Chocolate Lovers Series!!!

YAY!!!!! So she has posted her dream cast on her website so if you are wondering who she picked here it is…

  • Carter—> she was torn between two people

1) Ian Harding

Carter.  Oh dear, sweet Carter.  This is a tough one because there are two beautiful, blue-eyed hotties I have in mind.  First, Ian Harding from the TV show Pretty Little Liars.  There is just something about this man’s smile that does me in.  LOVE him!

2) Zach Effron

My 2nd choice would be (no one throw sharp objects at me) Zac Effron.  And no, I’m not talking about that jail-bait High School Musical shit.  I’m talking Charlie St. Cloud, hot as fuck Zac Effron.  And he’s legal now.  I checked.

  • Claire—> Rachel McAdams

Next up, Claire.  This is another tough one because Claire is so much like me.  And I am no Hollywood starlet!  But, I’m going with one of my all time favorites and someone I have a HUGE girl crush on, Rachel McAdams.

  • Liz—> Kristen Bell

Liz, my BFF in real life and someone who needs to be able to deliver snark like no other – Kristen Bell.  Aside from the fact that Veronica Mars was, is, and always will be my favorite show – I think Kristen Bell could rock the line, “Do you and the Ya Ya Brotherhood have a secret handshake too?”

  • Jim—> Topher Grace

And for Liz’s other half, Jim, I’m going with Topher Grace.  Jim is for the most part a quiet, easy-going guy who has no problem letting his wife wear the pants in the relationship.

  • Jenny—> Isla Fisher

Jenny – oh, dumb Jenny, how I love thee.  Considering I’ve seen the movie Wedding Crashers eleventy billion times and laugh hysterically every time the bedroom scene comes on where she says, “Baby, I’m going to make all your fantasies come true” and then shoves a sock in Vince Vaughns mouth and he’s freaking out because it’s NOT a fantasy of his…she HAS to be Jenny.
Isla Fisher

  • Drew—> Ashton Kutcher

And last, but not least – Drew.  This was another tough one.  Drew is cute, but he’s a giant man child.  He’s silly and a little bit dumb and never realizes people are laughing at him and not with him.  The only person I can picture is Kelso from That 70’s Show.
Drew, meet Ashton Kutcher.

  • Clair’s Dad –> Robert De Niro
