Interview with Jennifer Blackwood, author of Unethical

Unethical
Jennifer Blackwood

Love burns hotter the second time around…

Two years ago, the medical world was shaken by scandal, and Payton Daniels's family was at the center of it. The second she graduated, Payton left everything behind―her high school sweetheart, her family, and the controversy surrounding her mother's death—and hid within the anonymity of college. But Payton’s ex, Blake Hiller, hasn't forgiven her for leaving, and when he enrolls in the same medical ethics class, she panics. She can’t run the risk of him telling everyone who she really is. 

As if being at the same university isn’t enough, both Blake and Payton land the same internship. Forced together, their passion for each other reignites, but when Payton is asked to testify in her father’s high-profile trial, she must choose between risking her acceptance into medical school to help her father, and losing every connection to her past—including the only guy she’s ever loved.

Hello!!  So today I have an interview I did with Jennifer Blackwood for her new release, Unethical.  Sounds like quite the story, right?  I can't wait to see how it turns out!!

Geek Bearing Gifts by Milly Taiden (Review)

Title: Geek Bearing Gifts
Series: Paranormal Dating Agency #2
Author: Milly Taiden
Published: September 2014, Latin Goddess Press
Format: EBook received for review
Pages: 182

Nita Islas wants to find love. She's tired of the superficial relationships and is ready to give true romance a try. She uses the Paranormal Dating Agency and hopes they can help her where all others have failed. What she didn't expect was to find her date flat on his back in nothing more than a towel.

Ky Stone has been in love with curvy and funny Nita since they were in High School. When she moved away, she took his heart with her. Then one day Ky wakes up to find her leaning over him. He's sure he's died and gone to heaven. He has no idea what she's doing there, but he's sure as hell not letting her leave.

Fate, meddling family and the PDA have brought them together again. The chemistry between them is explosive. But there's problems with Ky's neighboring clan and he's keeping secrets from Nita. He needs to find a way to open up to her or lies and unexpected danger could tear them apart...forever.

Reader Warning: This book contains lots of scorching sex (dirty dirty dirty sex), adult language (hanky panky with no dirty talk is no fun), and violence. If this is not the kind of stuff you like to read, skip this book. However, if you like dirty, raunchy sex with a hot bear on one curvy sarcastic girl, then this is right up your alley. Enjoy!

So now we are two books into Paranormal Dating Agency, and I'm really liking it.  While I liked the first book (link below) a smidge better than this one - Geek Bearing Gifts was really good!

Wanting It All by Kati Wilde (Review)

Title: Wanting It All
Series: Hellfire Riders MC #1, Motorcycle club #1
Author: Kati Wilde
Published: October 2014
Format: Ebook received for review

He’s the one man I can never have, but the only one I crave…


Saxon Gray has reason to hate me. He spent five years in prison after saving me from a brutal violation at the hands of a rival motorcycle club – and he paid for that rescue with his freedom. I’ve never been able to settle the debt I owe him…until now.

The menace of that old rivalry is flaring up again, and as president of the Hellfire Riders, Saxon is the one man who can keep me safe. But I want more than his protection.

I want his heart.

WANTING IT ALL is a complete novella. No cliffhangers—only hot and sexy romance. The Motorcycle Clubs series is romance for readers who want all of the heat and emotion, but who don't have all of the time. Ella Goode, Ruby Dixon, and Kati Wilde are bringing you sweet and sexy romance with a new MC novella every month.


So I think it was last week I did a promo for The Motorcyle Club series.  In fact, there is still a giveaway going on for it HERE, so be sure to check it out.

I started my reading with this book, Kati Wilde's Wanting It All.  OMG.  If the rest of this series follows suit, there will be a hell of a lot of hot reads coming up. Saxon and Jenny's story was a bit different as far as motorcycle romances go, but I loved every page of it.

Just Gotta Say by Laura Kaye (Review)

Title: Just Gotta Say
Series: Standalone
Author: Laura Kaye
Published: October 2014
Format: Ebook received for review

Callie Davis stumbles upon two of her three male roommates in a surprising, molten-hot midnight tryst and discovers a side of herself she never knew existed. Desire to play with them grips her, and she can’t stop fantasizing about having multiple men, particularly her three long-time best friends. 

Callie is thrilled when a guys’ night out gives her the perfect opportunity to recreate her fantasy, with the help of a threesome porn video and a bag of sex toys. That is, until Lucas, Jack and Noah return early and catch her in the act. More than anything, the guys want to make her fantasy come true. But Callie has a secret, and she can’t help wondering if being with all three men will risk the future she’s always wanted with one of them.

As three strong sets of hands caress and undress her, Callie surrenders to desire, because sometimes you just gotta say…yes.

I've read several books from Laura Kaye now.  One thing I can definitely say about her writing is that it is consistently entertaining, intelligent, and sexy as hell.  Just Gotta Say might be a short read, but it definitely packs a punch.

Read Pink! Spotlight Tour



Read Pink® in Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Support the Next Chapter in Innovative Research

Penguin Random House Marks Five-Year Partnership Milestone and $125,000
in Donations to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®

What’s black and white and pink all over?  The initiative by Penguin Random House called Read Pink® in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October)!

Today the scientific community has left behind the “one-size-fits-all” breast cancer treatment to emerge with targeted, more effective therapies. As a result, after remaining stagnant for more than 50 years, the death rate from breast cancer has decreased by 30 percent. The Read Pink® initiative by Penguin Random House is proud to be part of this exciting new chapter in the fight against breast cancer, supporting the bold research of The Breast Cancer Foundation® (BCRF), while leveraging its passionate readers to help increase awareness and education about the disease. This literary embrace of a life-saving cause has resulted in nearly 1.5 million best-selling novels shipped with Read Pink seals and information about BCRF across all five years of the promotion.

Penguin Random House is thrilled to partner once again this year with BCRF, as 91 cents of every dollar spent by BCRF is directed towards breast cancer research and awareness programs.

The $25,000 donation that Penguin Random House contributes, regardless of sales, provides vital funds to support the mission of BCRF.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Penguin Random House’s Read Pink® editions, we are featuring a few participating authors and what Read Pink® means to them…

Pre-Release Blitz for Caged In Winter by Brighton Walsh (+Giveaway!)

Caged In Winter
Brighton Walsh

In this emotional and sexy New Adult debut from Brighton Walsh, the only thing more frightening than commitment is hope…...

Aspiring chef Cade Maxwell is immediately, viscerally attracted to Winter Jacobson. But it’s not her mouthwatering curves he’s drawn to—it’s the strange emptiness in her eyes. When Cade saves her from a drunken customer with grabby hands, he’s shocked at her response…...

Winter doesn’t need Cade’s help. After a lifetime of getting by on her own, she’s happy to rely on herself. She’s exactly seventy-six days away from graduating college, and if she can hold it together that long, she’ll finally be able to rise above the crappy hand she was dealt.

But now, every time she turns around, Cade is there, ready to push her, smile at her, distract her from her plans. Winter knows she can’t afford to open up—especially to a man she’s terrified to actually want….

So have you heard about this book?  I think if you like New Adult, you will probably like this one, too!  I've not started reading it yet - but it is on the list.  And how about the cover?  I really like it.  There's not a lot going on, but it's different for New Adult.  NA covers have a couple on them, a lot of time, so I'm digging this break from the norm.  So check out the excerpt, let me know what you think - and don't forget to enter the giveaway!!

Reaper's Stand by Joanna Wylde (Review & Giveaway)

Title: Reaper's Stand
Series: Reapers MC #4
Author: Joanna Wylde
Published: October 7, 2014 - Berkley Trade
Format: Galley & ARC

As Reapers Motorcycle Club president, Reese “Picnic” Hayes has given his entire life to the club. After losing his wife, he knew he’d never love another woman. And with two daughters to raise and a club to manage, that was just fine with him. These days, Reese keeps his relationships free and easy—he definitely doesn’t want to waste his time on a glorified cleaning lady like London Armstrong.

Too bad he’s completely obsessed with her.

Besides running her own business, London’s got her junkie cousin’s daughter to look after—a more reckless than average eighteen-year-old. Sure she’s attracted to the Reapers’ president, but she’s not stupid. Reese Hayes is a criminal and a thug. But when her young cousin gets caught up with a ruthless drug cartel, Reese might be the only man who can help her. Now London has to make the hardest decision of her life—how far will she go to save her family?


When I got this ARC in the mail a couple months ago - so new it didn't even have an awesome cover, I literally did a jump and squee.  I tried explaining it to my six year old why I was acting so excited, but she didn't really get it.  However, lovers of the Reapers get it, I know they do!  Picnic!!! Ahhh, finally, the man in charge!
