[Release Blitz* Reviews] THRONE OF TRUTH by Pepper Winters @PepperWinters @jennw23

Throne of Truth, the thrilling conclusion to Crown of Lies from New York Times Bestseller, Pepper Winters, is now LIVE!

Throne of Truth


Pepper Winters 
Publication Date: February 28th, 2017 
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Since my life changed for the second time and not necessarily for the better. Two years since I traded prison bars for streets and hunted a runaway who I’d met in an alley.

Since I forgot how to lie, woke to fists, and chased after the girl who’d been stolen from me.

To save her, rescue her, keep my lies intact. She looks at me full of hate. I look at her full of confession.

For our relationship to switch from mutual dislike to floundering with unknowns. I’ve hurt her. Now, she’s hurt me. I guess we’re even.

For her to listen, to see, to finally know who I am. The answer comes with hardship. The answer isn’t what she wants to hear.

For me to walk out the door.

For it all to be over.

\\Sisterhood Review//

Anne Milne

I've been desperate for this book ever since I finished book 1, I had so many burning questions, so many theories but would they be correct?
When we left Ella she was in pain emotionally from Penn's apparent betrayal and in a dangerous situation with Greg. I've got to admit I never pegged Greg as being so unhinged, he's seriously scary.
Will Ella be able to escape Greg?
Will Penn find her and rescue her from a madman?
After all the secrets are revealed will Ella and Penn have a future?
I loved learning all about Penn's past, we find out how he ended up on the streets, how's he connected to the men in the alley, how he became the success he is now. 
I don't know how Pepper does it but every book every series she just kills it everytime and I hope she never stops writing.

Review by AnessaRenee

You must read Throne of lies first and you will be Happy you did. This is the ending and second book in the duet. As always Pepper knows how to knock your socks off. This story picks up right where the first one leaves off. The writing flows so beautifully and sticks with you in such a way that you don't feel like any time has lapsed since you read the first book. I hate spoilers so all I really have to say is that I loved these books and always look forward to anything Winters puts out.

Start the series with Crown of Lies!

Since I ran away for the night, danced in New York streets, and almost got killed in an alley by two thieves. Until he showed up and saved me. 

Since I threw a drink at the man my father expected me to marry, then found myself slammed against a wall with Penn Everett’s seductive voice whispering a proposal I couldn’t refuse. 

To fall into hate with the man who reminded me of so many things and hid so much behind his lies. He couldn’t be the man who saved me three years ago…but there’s something so familiar…

For our relationship to switch from no-strings to marriage. He announced it to my father—he’s ecstatic. He told my friends—they’re shocked. But he didn’t ask me, he commanded me—and I’m livid. 

For his lies to slowly steal my heart and make me believe, hope…trust. 

For his truth to destroy me.

Becky Rendon

How much hotter can this get?
My insides are molten lava and filled with tension. But it's not just panty melting, no, the authors would never just make it anything. This is mysterious, slightly twisted, and has you begging for more.
The only problem is...a signed contract and a NDA. I can't tell you more. But you will want it, need it, and crave it.
Ice, I need ice. Something to cool me off because this is just the beginning.

Sweet baby Jesus what did I just read hot hot hot !!!!!
Ella is broke she's one step away from being homeless when she gets called in for an interview with Tobias, the interview is intimidating, ambiguous and a little but sexy. When she gets called in again she meets his partner Preston and the terms of her 'employment' become clear.
This is a quick novella but it's part of a series so that's to be expected. We get to learn a little about Ella but Tobias and Preston are a complete mystery they are both dominant successful men. They are playing a game where only they know the rules or is there a secret player? I can't wait for the next novella it's soo good.

This review of One Contract by LP Lovell and Stevie J. Cole is for The Sweet Spot Sisterhood Blog. This is part of a serial so it was a quick read that ends in a cliffhanger. It is hot with an edge of mystery. It left me wanting more. I can't wait for the next one. If you like hot ménage then this book is for you. What would you be willing to do for 1-2 Million dollars for a week of you life.

[Release Blitz * Reviews] SWEET VENOM by Kirsty-Anne Still @KirstyAnneStill

Title: Sweet Venom
Author: Kirsty-Anne Still
Release Date: Feb 28, 2017

Add to TBR

There are two sides to every story.

Until there are three.

And ours isn't for the faint of hearts.


SWEET VENOM is a crazy in love novel set in three point of views - crazy, crazier and craziest. This is a love triangle that is not made for those looking for an easy love story or an obvious end.
If I were you, I'd be careful who you fall for.

Meant for mature readers due to murder, violence and sex.


Review by Becky Rendon

Best Line in the whole book because of what it signifies:

"And that was it."

Lawson was always going to get the girl. But when it comes down to the end and you look back on the journey...Is she the same girl you wanted in the beginning?

I always pick my team in a triangle. I always know within a few chapters who is my "horse" but not this one. It took me almost halfway through to pick my girl. In the end, I chose wisely but there was a lot of doubt and some serious wavering.

Lawson may not be the traditional hero but to two women he is that and more. The problem is he can't seem to figure out which one is "The One". The one who broke his heart or the one who started it again.

In a dark world, dark fairytales rule. Sweet Venom is the sweetest dark fairytale. Once Upon A Time, there was a Prince and his Queen...
They were hopelessly in love. They rebelled against their parents and everyone around them. They wanted to be themselves. They didn't want to live in the shadows.

But one night a storm neither saw coming separated them. It caused them great pain. He believed she no longer loved him and strived to be rid of the pain. He couldn't get rid of his love but one day he found someone who might be able to help.

The Prince was wary of the newcomer. He couldn't bear to replace his Queen but something about her made him feel alive again. And though the situation was unusual, the Prince began to fall.

Some may think that's all she wrote, some may worry about the end. But ladies and gents, that is just the beginning. Because his Queen doesn't fight fair and she won't lose her Prince with a fight. However, the new Princess isn't going to just give up.

And so my friends, colleagues, and enemies begins Sweet Venom. May it poison your senses, confuse your heart, and leave you breathless.

Review by Anne Milne

Wow !!
I'm not sure what I expected from this book but OMG it totally surpassed my expectations. 

I've read lots of twisted love stories and this one will go to the top of that list. It's a crazy, mixed-up love story, it's a mystery, it's a mafia book, and it blew me away. The writing is amazing and we get information drip fed to us, slowly, slowly we learn more about all the players in this game. Kirsty kept me on the edge of my seat I couldn't put the book down. My emotions were all over the place I flipped my allegiance from Ashley to Eden, then back to Ashley. The one I never wavered on was Lawson. I didn't care he was a killer, he's just such a compelling character. 
When we meet Ashley I wasn't sure what to think about her. She came across as a rich man's plaything, but she's not. We know very little about her, we know she's tied to a contract that gives her to whichever man gets the contract next and now Lawson is the holder of it. 
Lawson is part of The Firm, he's a tough killer, he's also a hottie, but he's bitter after the love of his life Eden left him. He starts to let Ashley into his heart when Eden unexpectedly returns. Eden is a little bit crazy and a lot scary. I wouldn't want to cross her that's for sure.
Who does he pick? The girl that's opened his heart again or the girl who broke his heart? Who will you pick? Who's side are you on?
This is a story that will keep you guessing! It's full of plot twists, it's sexy, it's dark, it's compelling. A word of warning: be prepared and expect the unexpected.

Satisfied with my results, I settled on the bed, all snug and dry in my robe. Pressing a stack of clean washcloths to my mouth to muffle the laughter, I heard the water turn off. After a few seconds’ hesitation, he called from inside the bathroom.
“Hey. Where are all the towels?”
I didn’t answer, just laughed some more and smothered my giggles.
The slap of his wet feet on the bare floor sounded as he crossed the bathroom toward the door. He poked his dripping head out of the doorway. “What did you do?” His dark eyebrow arched, hair soaked and plastered to his forehead. A puddle quickly formed around his feet.
I held up one of the tiny washcloths. “You want this, don’t you? The hate is swelling in you now.”
His mouth quirked. “Something’s swelling, but it isn’t hate.” He pushed the hair away from his forehead and cleared the water that had dripped into his eyes. “Somehow I thought getting away with that was too easy.”
I smirked. “You should know me better by now. As for drying off…you could always use your dirty underpants.”
“Underpants? What am I, five?” He clenched his jaw and then grinned. “Don’t underestimate the power of the dark side, young Jedi.”
I rolled my eyes. “So you’re going to try to one-up me? So predictable. I’m shaking in my boots.”
His dark eyes gleamed as he came closer. Rivulets of water had collected on his tasty abs. It was fascinating to behold.
“And you should know me better, too.” He grinned evilly. “I don’t one-up. I one-hundred-up.” Then he shook his head inches from my face. Droplets of water sprayed everywhere. I let out a screech and pulled back. “You are looking too dry over there, little girl. Let me help you with that.”
And he promptly pinned me, dripping wet, to the bed and started rubbing his drenched face in mine. “You’re gonna soak the bed!” I screeched.
“Collateral damage,” he replied. He reached down and pulled the belt on my robe, opening it. Then he shifted, sandwiching me between his wet body and the bed.
I squirmed and wiggled, and he only seemed to like it more. He shook his head again. My hand smacked his hard chest. “You’re such a boy.”
He grinned. “I’m all boy,” he said, pressing his erection against me.
“I won’t take this lying down,” I muttered.
“You don’t have to take it lying down.” He laughed. “There’s always up against the door or the shower wall. Or you can take it bent over the back of the couch or a dozen other different ways. Whatever way you take it…you are taking it.”

[Release Blitz] COLE by Tijan @TijansBooks #TRSoR

He was the leader of the mafia.
I was about to fall in love with him, and his name
…Cole Mauricio.

Cole by Tijan is NOW LIVE!



I shouldn’t have remembered him.

He was just a guy who walked through a restaurant. I didn't know his name. We never made eye contact. There was no connection between us at all.

But I could feel him.

The tingle down my spine. The command in his presence. The snap of tension in the air around him. That was the first time I saw him, and I was captivated.

The second time was different.

He was in the mysterious back elevator of my apartment building. Our eyes met for a fleeting second before the doors closed, and I was staggered. My breath was robbed. My senses on high alert. My body hummed.

That was just the beginning.

He was the leader of the mafia. I was about to fall in love with him, and his name…

Cole Mauricio

Author Information

I didn't begin writing until after undergraduate college. There'd been storylines and characters in my head all my life, but it came to a boiling point one day and I HAD to get them out of me. So the computer was booted up and I FINALLY felt it click. Writing is what I needed to do. After that, I had to teach myself how to write. I can't blame my teachers for not teaching me all those years in school. It was my fault. I was one of the students that was wishing I was anywhere but at school! So after that day, it took me lots of work until I was able to put together something that resembled a novel. I'm hoping I got it right since someone must be reading this profile! And I hope you keep enjoying my future stories.

Review by Becky Rendon

I admit my distaste for a man I knew to be dick did not diminish my empathy for his wife. L.M. Carr makes sure that you feel her love, devotion, and frustration. You will know pain reading this book. Confusion, desperation, and disgust. Fear, distrust, and sorrow. Disbelief, doubt, and utter disdain.

But you will also experience hope, joy, and love. And we all know it's better to have loved...maybe it depends on the object of your love.

Karrie fell for the charming man she met. She fell head over heals. She loved him dearly. Now she wonders what happened to their marriage. He isn't the same. Things are different. But she didn't even know the half of it!

Looking for answers, explanations, or someone to blame, Karrie turns to Tyler. Or Tyler's room. She vents, grieves, and bullies him. But then it becomes something more...

Fear, doubt, and trust in the wrong man caused Karrie a lot of pain. What happens if she tries again?

I loved the book. I was a wreck though. It tore me apart and made me a sloppy PMer on Facebook. Sniveling mess that I was venting my frustration, anger, and disgust one messaged rant at a time...Or three at a time. Find me when, not if, you need to vent. I will hold your hand.

5 of 5 stars

Stronger Than Ever

This story was absolutely beautiful. You will be devastated more than a couple times. You will not be able to put it down. A story about how everything happens for a reason, and finding your true happily ever after despite all the heartbreak that jumps in your path. I will be suggesting this book to all my friends!
