~ Giveaway ~

When I started this whole blogging adventure I never thought that I would end up with a thousand people who like and follow me on Facebook. I had originally started it because I had been asked by some friends what I thought of some books, then when I had told them of a few ones that were really good they had asked what I would suggest to read next. I thought hmmm why not just start a page for them to follow what I think, then I looked into starting an actual blogging page. I have had so much fun reading, putting my reviews up and having people actually care about what I think. I love finding giveaways to share with people. I enjoy finding news on new books and sharing. So when I hit 1,000 on Facebook as well as hitting my 1 year of blogging, I wanted to put a giveaway together as a thank you!  I don’t do many giveaways so this has been fun and exciting for me.

I wanted to send out a huge thank you! Without these great authors (and more) I wouldn’t be able to do this!!!! So…

Thank You!!!!!! For all you do!!!

I don’t know if authors understand what they do for people like me (booklovers). We are able to sit and read, to escape from reality. Sometimes it is a need I am not sure many get unless you have a love and passion for books. When things may be too hectic or stressful we turn to you to help us leave it all behind even if for an hour or so. I know that a thank you may not be enough because to be honest I don’t feel that it can express to all the authors out there how much it means to us as readers!

Special Thank You to…

Teasers ~ Up to Me by M. Leighton

Today I noticed that M. Leighton had posted something on her website it is a first look little sneak peak into the second book of The Bad Boys series (UP TO ME) here is what she had posted… SO exciting!!! and I LOVE her inspiration!! 🙂 he is HOT!

Okay, I was going to wait to post ANYTHING about Up to Me, the book to follow Down to You, which will be out in January.  BUT, I decided to go ahead and give you a little peek into what’s going on in this book.  You’ll have questions when you see this, such as why the long hair?  Why the goatee?  But I can’t answer those. You’ll just have to read it and find out.  But let me assure you, you will LOVE it!  Oh.  My.  Gosh.  I’m so excited!  I broke my cardinal rule and told my sister all about what I have in store for the books.  Rather than ruining it, I think it just made her that much more excited.  She asks me every day if it’s ready for her yet.  LOL  That is a very, very good sign;)

So, here is your first visual for book 2.  Charlie Hunnam, the celebrity face for my twins.  Enjoy!!!

Here is the Blurb as well:

Happily ever after doesn’t come easy. But for love, it’s always worth the fight.

Olivia finds bliss unlike any she’s ever known in Cash’s arms. He sets her skin on fire and melts her heart right inside her chest. Unfortunately, their happily ever after is short-lived when a shadow from Cash’s past threatens to turn their world upside down.

Dangerous people from his father’s world have discovered that Cash holds information that could put them away for a very long time. And they’re willing to do anything—and hurt anybody—to get it back. Giving it up means Cash must choose between the life of his father and the life of Olivia.

Having nearly overcome her wariness of bad boys, Olivia’s trust is shaken when this new threat arises. Now she finds that Cash is not only a danger to her heart, but his family has associations that are a danger to her life as well. She soon discovers that there are some situations in life where trust is a girl’s only option. And this is one of them. If she’s to live, she must trust Cash with her life. But to Olivia, that’s much, much easier than letting go and trusting him with her heart.

Charlie 4

She also has released the Cover so that we can all see the wonderful cover!

She also has posted teasers… but before we get to that here is the playlist for the book

Teaser 1

He squeezes me and presses his lips to my shoulder.  I can barely feel them through the lapel of my robe.
“Can I take this off you?” he breathes.  “I want to feel your skin against mine.”
A pang of desire zings through me at the thought of him holding my naked body against his.  It was only a few hours ago that we had sex for the fifth time today, but it feels like an eternity ago. So much has happened since then, so many emotions have come and gone, that it feels…different.
“Yes,” I whisper in response, answering him before my mind can talk me out of it.
I start to sit up, but Cash stops me.  He leans up on one elbow and pulls my hair away from my face and neck, bending to press his lips against the soft skin beneath my ear.
“Let me.”
Teaser 2
I walk over, stopping at the bar across from her.  I watch as she wraps the last bottle and puts it back on the shelf.  She looks around, making sure everything is done and the bar is clear before she turns to me. “Have I ever told you how beautiful you are?”
Shyly, she looks away for a heartbeat before she brings her eyes back to mine.  She’s still not quite comfortable with compliments, which shocks me.  How someone who looks like she does could ever feel less than drop-dead gorgeous is beyond me.  Yet she does.  In a backward way, that makes her even more appealing.
“You might’ve mentioned it once or twice before,” she says coyly, biting her lip in that way I love. It makes me want to carry her into the back room again.  But it would have to be quick.  And a quickie isn’t what I want with this girl.  Unless it can be followed up with something much more…thorough.
Watching me from the corner of her eye, she turns and starts walking slowly toward the cut-out. With the bar between us, I walk with her.
“That’s right.  I did mention it before.  I remember telling you how amazing you are.  I think we were in front of a mirror.”  My dick twitches behind my zipper just thinking about sliding into Olivia from behind and coming inside her in the ladies’ bathroom at Tad’s. “Does that sound familiar?”
As she walks, she glances up at me from the corner of her eye.  I see the flash of hot desire.  I know she remembers it just as perfectly as I do.
She clears her throat.  “Um, yeah.  That seems vaguely familiar.” Her grin is playful.
God, what a tease!
“Vaguely?  Maybe I didn’t pound it into you hard enough.”
“Oh, I think you pounded it in plenty hard.”
“Maybe I should’ve taken the time to give you a good tongue-lashing, too, then.”
“Oh, I think the form of communication you used was very effective.”
“So it’s all coming back to you now?”
“Yes, it’s all coming back to me.”
“If you’re lying, I could sweat it out of you, you know.”
“I’m not lying.  It’s etched into my memory. Permanently.”
“Maybe we should revisit it, just so you’re clear on everything we discussed.  I want to make sure it’s in there.  Nice and deep.  So you never forget it.”
Finally her grin turns into a giggle just as we’re nearing the cut-out at the end of the bar.  When she rounds the corner, I’m there blocking her way with my body.
“I doubt there’s anything you could do to get it in there any deeper.”
“Oh, I can think of one or two things.  The only way we’ll know for sure, though, is to try. And I don’t know about you, but I’m committed to this.  Invested.  And I’m nothing if not thorough.”
Teaser 3
Cash’s back is to me. I see him run his fingers through his hair and I hear him sigh again.  “I’m asking you to trust me, Olivia.”  He turns to face me.  “Trust in what you know about me.  Because I know, if you stop listening to your fear, you know who I am.  Deep down.  You know me, Olivia.  You know me.”
His voice is sincere. His expression is urgent.  I close my eyes against his face, his handsome face, the face that haunts both my waking and my sleeping world.  I open them again when I feel warm hands cup my cheeks.  Cash is a breath away, his eyes oceans of midnight, drawing me out into the deep.
“It’s me,” he says softly.  “Stop listening to everything else.  Remember the way you feel when I’m kissing you and touching you.  Don’t think with your head.  You know me.  And when my lips are on yours, you trust me.”  As if to make his point, he dips his head and brushes his mouth over mine.  Sparks fly between us.  As always.  “You trust me, when my hands are on your skin.”  He runs his palms down my arms and then over to my waist where he pushes them up under the edge of my shirt.  Chills break out down my back.  “You trust me when you turn your mind off, when you just feel.”
Teaser 4
I dig around in my purse for my key as I approach the front door.  I’m distracted as I slip it in and unlock the knob, turning to wave to Cash. But he’s not on his bike at the curb. It’s resting on the kickstand, motor idling. He’s charging up the sidewalk toward me.  Before I can even blink, my back is pressed to the cool metal of the door, Cash’s lips are on mine and his hands are in my hair.

I melt into him.  Relief that he was feeling the same way battles for dominance with the desire to drag him into my bedroom, shut the door and pretend nothing and no one exists outside it.
But before I can give in to that urge, Cash is pulling back, giving me room to breathe and giving rational thought the tiny crack it needs to wiggle back into my mind.
His eyes, darker than the night around us, search mine as his hands move from my hair to my shoulders and down my arms to grip mine.  “Do me a favor,” he whispers, curling my fingers over the back of his and bringing them to his mouth.
“What?”
His eyes never leave mine as he brushes his lips over my knuckles.  “Dream of me tonight,” he says softly.  He watches me, waiting for a response.  I have no words, so I simply nod.  He doesn’t need to know that no one else occupies my dreams. No one.
“Dream of my lips, teasing you.”  Straightening one of my fingers, he kisses the tip.  His voice is like velvet and his words are like an aphrodisiac.  “Dream of my tongue, tasting you.”  His tongue sneaks out to flick the end of my finger.  A surge of desire rocks my core. “And I’ll dream of you.  Of what it feels like to be inside your warm, wet body.”  As if to show me what he feels, Cash sucks my finger into his mouth and pulls it in and out of his mouth, back and forth over his tongue.  I can barely breathe.
He pulls it out, but before he lets it go, he gives it a gentle bite. I feel a burn in the pit of my stomach, a drop of lava in a boiling volcano.
“Good night, Olivia,” he says quietly.  And then he turns and walks away.

SOME NEWS AND INFO…BOUT SOME GREAT AUTHORS…

Here is some news and information as well that I have come across in news updates from their blogs, or facebook pages.. either way I just wanted to share… with everyone…

Molly McAdams the GREAT author of Taking Chances is working on a new book… well 2 actually the first is a book that is not a part of Taking Chances at all it is a different book called From Ashes which is set to come out in December and I can not wait to read this one!   She also posts Teasers for it on her BLOG! 🙂 gotta love teasers!

blurb:   When Cassidy Jameson’s best friend Tyler took her to Texas with him when he left for college, she was expecting his cousin, their new roommate, to be a Stetson-wearing cowboy since his family owned a ranch; not this incredibly gorgeous guy with a husky Southern drawl that seemed to make the world stop whenever she looked at him. Because of her past, she’s only ever trusted two men in her life, Tyler and her dad whom passed away when she was six. But there’s something about Gage that draws her to him in a way she can’t explain, only problem? He’s always telling Tyler that he doesn’t want Cassidy living there and sees her as nothing more than his little sister.

She also is working on something that is connected to Taking Chances it is Chase’s POV I can NOT wait for this one!!! I am beyond excited for this one, as well as a little scared as to how it will all work.. I am sure I will need tissues!!  I got this from her BLOG:

Chase’s story needs to get out there, and there’s so much you read in Harper’s POV that I know you’re wanting to see. The fights with Brandon – talking to his parents about Harper – and pretty much how he viewed EVERYTHING.

So I’m shooting for an early March release for his POV, no title yet…will keep you updated though!

Although she has been calling it Stealing Harper for now… So we will have to wait and see if she changes that… 🙂

M Leighton the author of Down to You (good read!!) and Wild Ones (on my TBR list)

She is working on there being 3 books for the down to you series and 3 for the wild ones series.

As of right now she has a tentative title for book 2 in the Down To You series UP TO ME. She has not yet come up with one for the third book.

She has the second book of the Wild Ones Series title as Wild Child and the third’s tentative title is Wild Nights.

I am waiting patently for the second book in the Down To You books!!! that cliff hanger left me wanting to scream! 🙂

Olivia Cunning the author of GREAT rock stars! The Sinners on Tour Series and One Night With Sole Regret Series.

Right now many are jumping up and down knowing that Trey’s book comes out next week. Right now there are a few giveaways that have ONE day left so please go enter if you have a chance to TONIGHT

The first one that I came across is over at Under The Covers Blog she also does an interview with Olivia I always LOVE to read interviews with my favorite authors… in this interview she also talks about the fact that the publishers decided to print Trey’s book as third in the series when it was originally written as the last book. So there may be some spoilers in there about Jace and Eric.  The blog is giving away a print of Double Time! ONE DAY LEFT

Then there is the EPIC giveaway that Olivia is doing on her own blog —> HERE she is giving away 2 copies of the 3 books of the Sinners On Tour Series for the person who won as well as a set for them to give away to who they would like to, along with some candies yummy!!  ONE DAY LEFT

And well who can pass up an interview with TREY!?? I just love when I get to read these type of interviews! 🙂 they make me smile!  Here on SIA MCKYE OVER COFFEE‘s Blog they were lucky enough to get to interview the wonderful Trey and I just had to pass it along for those who would like to read it…

Here is an older interview but it is still a good one with Trey! –>The Cutest Blog on the Block

THE BEST NEWS I GOT….. Okay she also did another interview on Love Romance Passion‘s Blog… Here we were able to leave questions and she would respond when she got a chance to. They are also doing a giveaway of a print copy of Double Time… ENDS NOV. 9

Here is what I that I had posted…

—Okay I have read all 3 of the Sole Regret books and LOVE every SINGLE one of them.. I wish they were longer though. haha BUT I was wondering……..
QUESTION——> since there are only 2 more left in that set will we get a feeling of closure like a follow up that’s maybe a year or two later to tell us what has happened???
—I have also read the 2 Sinners books that are out so far and LOVED them!!! no one can write a Rock Star book the way you can!! (AWESOME!!) So that being said I can not wait for HOT TICKET to come out since I know that Trey was supposed to be last and well I HAVE to read a series in order.. So I will be reading in the order YOU posted on your website… (I know the wait will be worth it for sure! 🙂 )
QUESTION—–> Once you finish up with Sole Regret and Sinners what is going to be next for you? do you have a plan to do more Rock Star books or something totally different???

And when I got a response from her I wanted to scream….. I was so excited!!!! here was her response…

Brandy- There are at least 12 more Sole Regret books in the works. I’m experimenting with a serial format. I thought it would be fun to have all five stories going at once, one night at a time. We’ll see if I change my mind after around book seven. So far I’m loving how the series is progressing. I have so many ideas for weaving the stories together. After Sole Regret and Sinners, I’ll be working on Exodus End. Those will be full-length novels, similar to the Sinners format. I know the Sole Regret serial format drives some folks crazy, but I like that I can put one out every six or seven weeks instead of every six or seven months. 😀

12 MORE SOLE books!!!!! yay!!!! and another ROCK STAR series after Sinners!!! YAY!!!

And after reading the responses to all the questions I can not wait for Jace and Eric’s book she had said that Eric surprised her with his self-less heart… I mean come on I always loved the guy he is a big goof ball… and of course he is self less haha he helped Brian out in the bathroom in Back Stage Pass no problem 😉

Here is a little info I found on another interview she did on Guilty Pleasure‘s Blog about Exodus End…

The lead character of Double Time is Trey Mills. He’s the rhythm guitarist for Sinners. His brother, Dare Mills, is also a guitarist. He plays lead guitar for the band Exodus End. Because Double Time’s heroine, Reagan Elliot, is also in the band Exodus End—she won a contest and is touring with them for a year—we are introduced to the other members of Exodus End in this book. The lead singer is Max—he’s very serious and methodical about music. Then there’s Steve, the drummer. He’s a bit of a skirt chaser. Then Logan, the bassist, who is the jokester. And Dare who gives off irresistible Dare-a-mones. Dare shows up a lot in Double Time because he’s such an awesome, supportive brother to Trey, and he also takes on a mentor role with Reagan.

Considering that there are still two Sinners books to be released next year, I think you’re getting a bit ahead of yourself with Exodus End. I do have plans to write four novels in a spin-off series. Since I haven’t finished the first one yet, I can’t say how or when they’ll be published. Let’s go with a very vague and noncommittal: one of these days. Hopefully, sooner rather than later. I do want to wait until all the Sinners books are released before I focus on Exodus End, however. So keep your panties on. *wink* But thanks for your interest in more rock star books! I love writing them.


Wild Ones Series by M. Leighton

Little bit about book 1:

Passion as hot as midnight in the South and love as wild as the horses they tame.

Camille “Cami” Hines is the darling daughter of the South’s champion thoroughbred breeder, Jack Hines. She has a pedigree that rivals some of her father’s best horses. Other than feeling a little suffocated at times, Cami thought she was pretty happy with her boyfriend, her life and her future.

But that was before she met Patrick Henley.
“Trick” blurs the lines between what Cami wants and what is expected of her. He’s considered the “help,” which is forbidden fruit as far as her father is concerned, not to mention that Trick would be fired if he ever laid a hand on her. And Trick needs his job. Desperately. His family depends on him.
The heart wants what the heart wants, though, and Trick and Cami are drawn to each other despite the obstacles. At least the ones they know of.

1) Wild Ones

1.5) Wild Child (Oct. 2013)

2) Some Like It Wild (March 2014)

3) There’s Wild, Then There’s You (2014)

The Bad Boy Series by M. Leighton

Here is the idea of the first book…

The scorching tale of one girl, two brothers and a love trianglethat’s not.

Both brothers make her heart tremble. Both brothers set her body on fire.

She wants them both.

And they want her.

How will she ever choose between them?

1) Down to You

2) Up to Me 

3) Everything for Us
