Amazon ~ B&N ~ Books-A-Million ~ Indie Bound



Logan Kash Ryan has spent the last three and a half years working undercover in Tampa Bay, Florida. When a case sends him and his partner to Austin, Texas to follow the trail of a serial killer, their sole focus needs to be on finding the guy before he can find another victim. The last thing Kash needs is the distraction of his beautiful new neighbor, but there’s something about her guarded nature and feisty attitude that makes it impossible to stay away from her.

Rachel Masters has shielded herself from getting hurt again. But when her new neighbor almost takes her car door off with his motorcycle, everything changes. He’s arrogant, gorgeous, tattooed and pierced. Everything she knows she should stay away from. Despite the warnings her initial impression has raised, she quickly falls for him and the way he works at breaking down all her walls. But he’s hiding something, and after everything that has happened in Rachel’s life lately, a guy is the last thing she needs.

From the moment Rachel and Kash meet, they stress the friendship-only rule and continue to push their feelings for each other aside. But as their friendship advances, lines start blurring, and soon their reasons for keeping the other at a distance are forgotten.

Will Kash be able to maintain focus on the investigation while keeping Rachel safe from his real life – or will it all fall apart right in front of him, and will she run when she finds out everything he has been hiding?

~About Molly~


Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry four-legged daughter. Some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling and long walks on the beach…which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. When she’s not diving into the world of her characters, she can be found hiding out in her bedroom surrounded by her laptop, cell, Kindle and fighting over the TV remote. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm…or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren’t really happening.

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.

Taking Chances by Molly McAdams

This is one of my favorite books!! and when I finished and found out she was doing another in Chase’s POV I was so exited! I am looking forward to it!

Eighteen year old Harper has grown up under her career Marine of a father’s thumb. Ready to live life her own way and experience things she’s only ever heard of from the jarheads in her father’s unit; she’s on her way to college at San Diego State University.

Thanks to her new roommate, Harper is introduced to a world of parties, gorgeous guys, family and emotions. Some she wasn’t expecting yet, and others she never knew she was missing.

She finds herself being torn in two as she quickly falls in love with her boyfriend Brandon, and her roommate’s brother Chase. Covered in tattoos, known for fighting in the Underground and ridiculously muscled…they’re exactly what she was always warned to stay away from, but just what she needs. Despite their dangerous looks and histories, both adore and would do anything for Harper, including stepping back if it means she’s happy.

Her first year away is turning out to be near perfect, but one weekend of giving in to heated passion will change everything.

1) Taking Chances

2) Stealing Harper

I also was LUCKY enough to get a fun interview with her —> HERE

My Thoughts On:

Taking Chances


Mrs. Molly was so happy to pop my cherry. 🙂 She is the first “interview” I have done with an author, she is so fun and a sweetheart I am glad I was able to chat with her and hopefully will continue to chat from time to time. 🙂 even when she makes it big. I wanted to make sure I didn’t ask any repeat questions so below mine are some questions and answers to other questions and the links to the blogs that they were posted on.

Over the weekend she let everyone know on her facebook page that she was picked up to be published by Harper Collins SO excited for her!!

The hubby is taking me out for a celebration dinner!!!!! Thank you to my amazing agent Kevan Lyon for helping me land an incredible deal with HarperCollins! And thank you to all of you! Less than 4 weeks, and all of this was possible because y’all believed in me and Taking Chances 🙂 I love you guys ♥

Here are my questions with her answers…

1.   Who is your favorite UFC fighter (mine is St. Pier don’t know what it is about that boy) / actor(there are so many!!)…


2.  What is your favorite genre of books to read? I am a perv so I love me some good erotica/bdsm 🙂 (hubby calls it my book porn) …

Ooo…favorite?? That’s tough. It really depends on my mood, there are sometimes I can’t even THINK about reading a paranormal, a YA or an erotica…but then there are other weeks where I HAVE to read 2-3 eroticas. So it all just depends 🙂

3.  What is your favorite color / type of music / tv show / quote / movie / book…

Color: Hmm green (although I only have ONE green shirt, weird…I know!

Music: Definitely don’t have a favorite type of music, have you heard my Spotify playlists?! Haha! (yeah I have a hard time picking a fav type also, depends on my mood)

TV Show: DUCK DYNASTY!!! I LOVE the beards! Haha (I have never heard of it but now I will have to check it out! 🙂

Quote and Movie: oh now that’s not even fair. My hubby and I watch/quote movies like it’s a hobby! There’s no way I could choose!

Book: Anything Nicholas Sparks (except Three Weeks With My Brother)

4.  What is your guility pleasure…

Reading erotica novels. LOL! In a completely different CLEAN direction, FRIED PICKLES! OOO I love living in the South 🙂 (clean isn’t fun… hahaha)

5.    I love your fb page and just reading the stuff you post you are absolutely my kinda girl 🙂 so what do you like to do for fun? (other then write)

Oh my word, you just have no idea how much I do…it’s crazy I literally —- don’t do anything. Haha I love doing quote battles with my hubby! We’re homebodies, so that’s why we watch so many movies, but when we want to have separate times, he plays his xbox, I read or write. Other than that, I’m a pretty boring person! (haha that sounds like my house… mine plays PS3 and I will sit and read or we lounge for the most part. It is SUPER exciting… when it is done naked! Haha)

6.    If you could have any super power what would it be?

Read minds, without a doubt. I didn’t even have to think about that one. I know I could hear things I don’t want to, but don’t care…that’s what I want! (would have to agree it would be an awesome power I would absolutely want to be able to know what people are thinking! That was one of mine that and being able to be invisible and in 2 places at once. Hell I wish I had them all! Ha)

7.    Do you ever miss Cali? (I know I would be terrified out there in TX with all the crazy weather since I am a cali girl the worst I have had to deal with are earthquakes from time to time)

I do, and I don’t. The people in Texas are SO much nicer, the tornados TERRIFY me, I miss being close to nice beaches, Texas is WAY cheaper. And all my family is in Cali….so yes I miss them!

8.   How have your family and friends reacted to the attention you have been getting from your book?

Pretty well! I think everyone is just in shock, like I am! No one in my family knew until after I published the book that I even wrote! So everyone was just like, “Wait…what?!” But now they’re all excited and very supportive, and my hubby as always is VERY supportive!

9.   Has your husband read your book / if so what did he think?

Yes! He was the first person to read it! He isn’t into romance…haha but even still he really liked it. He would be reading next to me and he’d start laughing, or getting mad at the characters *Ahem…Harper. Lol. And you could tell he was really into it! (it will be awesome to know his thoughts when you ever get to doing an erotic ménage 😉 )

10.  How long did it take you to write the book?

Taking Chances from start-last round of edits took four months 🙂

11.   From what I have come to notice that big “issue” in the book for many it is a make it or break it deal… after that “issue” comes about people either hate or absolutely love the book. So my question is have you once regretted putting that in or wish you would have went a different route?

Never. Writing “that part” was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but once it was done, I knew that was exactly how my story needed to be because literally EVERYTHING fell into place after that. It still kills me, I still cry when I read it, but I love my book, I wouldn’t change the storyline for the world.

12.   How do you feel/deal with people who get so upset because they do not like the way that you took the book? (even though it is better to surround yourself with the positive! There is negative out there)

Of course it’s hard and it really hurts when people tear into you or your work. You want to defend your writing and reasoning (which by the way I gladly answer to anyone who wants to know, even if they’re devastated…but if you’re ripping into my book you can expect me not to respond. It hurts, it’s not my place, and everyone is entitled to their own opinion) but you just can’t change people’s minds! So, I try to stay away from bad reviews, not to make my head bigger, but just because bad reviews can really bring an author down. And I don’t need that in my life, I’m naturally a positive person, and I like staying that way! (I have noticed that there are a lot of authors who do not even look at their reviews other then what people will tell them on their FB, Twitter, or emails. I wouldn’t be able to deal with that because like you said you would want to defend your work. BUT like in live you will NEVER be able to satisfy everyone; and as long as you are happy with how everything turned out that is all you can ask for! – and by the way I LOVE the book! 😉 )

13.   What is the craziest thing you have done? (that you can legally speak of haha)

Well that I can SPEAK of…I have flashed people while driving down the 5 in Cali….SHHHHHHHH haha

14.   I have noticed you enjoy writing love triangles what makes it so interesting to you?

What girl doesn’t want two guys fighting over her?! I just wouldn’t want the whole having to choose bit. Haha, but really, I love drama, and I love romance. What better way to get those together?

15.   If you could get paid to do anything what would it be? (Job wise, and not stripping or writing)

Not stripping?! You took my answer! Haha, just kidding. You know what, I want to play with puppies all day, (someone else can clean up their messes)…I’ll get paid for that! I’m one of those people that loves going to pet shops just to play with the pups! Haha

16.   And last but not least since you have written love triangles, and I absolutely fell in love with both Chase and Brandon have you thought of writing erotica with ménage? I mean all I could think while reading Taking Chances was come on… just work it all out and all three of you live HEA! Haha (yeah that’s just the perv in me I guess but who wouldn’t want BOTH of them boys!?)

I would LOVE to write erotica…I just don’t know if I’d be any good at it…so I would have to figure out if I can actually write it before writing a ménage hahaha. But that would be fun 😉 Kinky. I like it doll! Agreed! Brandon and Chase? Um YES PLEASE! Get over your issues boys and lets do this! Haha (oh I will be keeping my fingers crossed that you will get one done eventually… with some kink in them!! Lol)

Here are a few things that I found on 2 other blogs and just wanted to share them as well since they were good questions!

These were found on Laura Mackie’s blog called Blame It On The Rain:

  • Taking Chances seems to have made quite a big impact on readers in such a short space of time, it seems that every blog I go on, there is a new review saying just how good it is. Did you expect such a good response from readers?

Not at all, it was a huge shock and it’s been such a rush! I was honestly thinking, maybe in a year or so people will actively start buying my book, maybe people will know my name – but never this. It’s been absolutely incredible and I’ve loved interacting with the readers as they get as caught up in the lives of Harper, Chase and Brandon as I did!

  • How did you come up with the concept for the story?

A seriously amazing dream 😉 In the dream I knew I had a boyfriend, and didn’t understand why in the world I would ever cheat on him, but there I was arguing with another guy and the next thing I know he had me up against the wall, then we were falling into his bed (sound familiar…?) Almost all of what happened in between that first scene with Harper and Chase, and then Harper and Chase finally dating was in my dream and Taking Chances came from that.

  • When you started writing did you know where you wanted the book to go, specifically with the character of Chase?

I did! I wanted Harper and Chase to end up together and have their HEA, but halfway through their HEA I stumbled upon and read two stories that mine have been linked with, (Beautiful Disaster and Thoughtless) and realized that I couldn’t have them stay together. I needed a book that was different than others, and though originally I just had Chase leaving, certain things happened and “The Scene” came about. I never had that planned, and it hit me just as hard as it hit the readers. I cried for two hours straight while writing it and after, and the story took its own turn from there.

  • I think that most people who have read Taking Chances are pretty torn over which ‘team’ they are on, so what about you, team Brandon, or team Chase?

Ahh, I have to say I’m Team Brandon – when I’m not Team Chase 😉 I’m way too in love with both of them to be solely one team, but if I had to choose, I would choose Brandon.

  • Your new book, From Ashes, is being released in December, could you tell me a little bit about the story and the things that inspired you to write it?

It’s about a girl, Cassidy, that has been taken from her abusive parents by her best friend Tyler. Tyler was leaving for college and there was no way he could leave Cassidy with them, besides, he’s in love with her…what he’s not planning on is her falling in love with his cousin Gage, their new roommate. Tyler does everything to keep them apart and succeeds for a year and a half until he accidently pushes them together. Only months into Gage and Cassidy’s relationship, something happens that sends her back to Tyler and it just might be the breaking point for them both. Like with Taking Chances, and almost all of my other books, a dream inspired this book as well! I have a lot of good dreams I’ve written down that are just waiting to be turned into stories!

  • And finally, who is your favorite book crush?

Hawk Delgado from Mystery Man- The Dream Man series by Kristen Ashley. YUM! I swear he’s my husband!! (Just don’t tell my actual hubby!)

This last part of the interview on Lisa’s Book Review Blog was one of my favorites. I love when music is added to a book and here is Molly’s Playlist for Taking Chances:

What songs did you listen to while writing Taking Chances, if any?

I had Pandora playing Hinder, Paramore, Coheed & Cambria and Anberlin Radio on shuffle, but this is the playlist for Taking Chances: I have to have music while I write and edit, but I can’t stand to have the TV on! When they start talking I accidentally start writing what they’re saying.

Review – Taking Chances by Molly McAdams


Eighteen year old Harper has grown up under her career Marine of a father’s thumb. Ready to live life her own way and experience things she’s only ever heard of from the jarheads in her father’s unit; she’s on her way to college at San Diego State University.

Thanks to her new roommate, Harper is introduced to a world of parties, gorgeous guys, family and emotions. Some she wasn’t expecting yet, and others she never knew she was missing.

She finds herself being torn in two as she quickly falls in love with her boyfriend Brandon, and her roommate’s brother Chase. Covered in tattoos, known for fighting in the Underground and ridiculously muscled…they’re exactly what she was always warned to stay away from, but just what she needs. Despite their dangerous looks and histories, both adore and would do anything for Harper, including stepping back if it means she’s happy.

Her first year away is turning out to be near perfect, but one weekend of giving in to heated passion will change everything.

Due to sexual situations and language, this is Mature YA/New Adult. Recommended for ages 17+

WOW!!! That was a VERY emotional ride and I loved EVERY minute of it. I couldnt think of how to descrbibe this book until I had come across a review that had the best way

“it is Beautiful Disaster meets Thoughtless”

I was so pulled into this book from the begining I was so drawn in and invested into the story I couldnt stop thinking about it and couldnt wait to get back to the book any time I had to put it down. I fell in love with BOTH Chase and Brandon and my heart broke throughout this book. I was sucker punched in the gut a time or two and then wanted to yell at Harper that she is so stupid and crazy and she needed to get with it!! I cried a few times reading this and it was hard to not feel like I was there when everything was happening. I just love when I find a book that can pull me in the way this one did.

If you want a love story that is absolutely FULL of angst and struggles along with sweetness and love this would be a GREAT choice. There were so many moments in this that I just fell in love with one of the characters or just have my heart ripped out of my chest. When one of the guys is talking to her and is trying to explain to her how much she is worth it :

“you deserve someone who has waited for you as long as you have waited for them. And no matter how much I wish I could be that guy, I can’t Harper.”

at the same time I did come across moments that made me laugh and me personally being someone that is on the “shorter” end as far as my height as Harper is this part had me cracking up:

“God you’re so short.” “No, the rest of you are just freakishly tall.”

all in all this is absolutely a must read and in all the angst that is in it there is so much love. It was easy to become obsessed with this book and feel as though you are there through everything that happens and when they hurt you feel it and when they are happy you feel that also when they are confused I can honestly say that for the first time reading a love triangle I didn’t know what to feel I felt as torn as Harper did. And that was a first for me. I am so glad that I took the opportunity to read this one it was absolutely worth it!!! It will pull you in and I know for me I will not forget this one. It is up there with my top favorite angst filled romance novels!

GREAT NEWS!!: I was looking at Molly’s blog (dont read the comments if you have not read the book there are spoilers posted) and she says that she is going to be doing another book but in Chase’s POV!! I am so beyond excited!!!!! NOW what would put me over the top is to find out they are making this one into a movie!!!!!!

You can follow her here on her:





She also has pictures posted on some things from the book… who she pictured in her mind while she wrote this GREAT story! So I am posting some extra pictures of  “Chase, Harper and Brandon” in the slide show.
