#NewRelease #Reviews VEN by K Webster and Ker Dukey @IndieSagePR @KristiWebster @KerDukeyauthor


by K. Webster & Ker Dukey

Publication Date: June 29, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Dark, Mafia, Romance

The Vetrov name comes with expectation. My role in this world is simple: do as Father asks and live my life how he planned it. My future is already written: run the empire. Old Values. Old Rule. Old Money. Until her. Everything I do lacks purpose. Everything I do is empty. Women. Money. Power. It meant nothing. Until her. When the Volkov rose showed up at my home a disgraced package, hand-delivered by a Vasiliev prince, I began paving my own path. I vowed to make her bloom once more. She consumed me. Her. Her. Her. But you can’t love a rose and expect not to be damaged by her thorns. She cut me too deep. And I bled out. My soul fled. All that’s left is a cold, calculating monster. I am Veniamin. Volcanic. Victorious. Valiant. Vetrov. When you enter my world to play games, prepare to lose. In the end, I always find the thorn in my side, and I pluck it right out. 


Before you start this one you need to read book one as it will give a better understanding of the characters and the story dynamics.

This is Veniamin and Diana's story and get ready because this is intense. In my opinion, the authors outdid themselves with this one, the action is amped up, the betrayals and double-dealing wow some I never saw coming.

It's a toss-up for me for favourite character between Ven and Diana I loved them both. Diana is a strong woman let down by every man in her life she's decided to make them all pay. She never takes the easy route and often her decisions backfire but her determination to keep going is to be admired. Ven is a ruthless alpha male, the oldest male in his family but his father is still the arch manipulator. I loved his fierceness both in business and in his pursuit of Diana.

A story with a little bit of everything that kept me turning the pages and unhappy when it was over. I can't wait for the next book.

About Ker Dukey

My books all tend to be darker romance, edge of you seat, angst filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles…prepare for the unexpected. I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters growing up. My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light; some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling. When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

#NewRelease #Reviews DISGRACE by Brittainy C Cherry @BrittainyCherry @Jennw23

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again.
After fifteen years together, he walked away from me, and into the arms of another.
I didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t know my worth. I didn’t know how to exist without him by my side.
All I wanted was for him to come back to me.
Then, Jackson Emery appeared.
He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A confidence boost to my bruised heart.
We were perfect for one another, because we both knew we wouldn’t last. Jackson didn’t believe in commitment, and I no longer believed in love. He was too closed-off for me, and I was too damaged for him.
Everything was fine, until one night my heart skipped a beat.
I didn’t expect him to make me laugh. To make me think. To make my sadness somewhat disappear.
When our time was up, my heart didn’t know how to walk away.
Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again, yet slowly my prayers began to shift toward the man who wasn’t right for me. 
I prayed for one more smile, one more kiss, one more laugh, one more touch… 
I prayed for him to be mine.
Even though I knew his heart wasn’t destined to love.

It's official I'm ruined thanks to this author who has written an amazing book that played on every emotion and insecurity I've ever had.

Grace is a fab character who could be me or any woman who's had their life fall apart. The words adequately portray the heartbreak, despair and confusion she feels. I know when I've had a bad breakup I've always looked at myself first, what did I do wrong and the author portrays this aspect of a broken relationship perfectly.

Jackson is just .... sigh I loved every broken part of him and I know he's going to capture the hearts of readers everywhere. His backstory is full of pain and the prejudice of the town he lives in. More than once I cried for him because what you see on the outside doesn't even scratch the surface of this beautiful man's soul. 

An absolutely beautiful story that touch your heart. 
This story was an epic pile of feelings. It’s one of the things that this author does to you, she makes you feel all the feels, whether you want to or not. I’m not one to get emotional about things, but this Author gets me. EVERY. TIME. Grace is every girl’s girl, and Jackson...gosh. Jackson is that broken beautiful guy you need in your life. This story is beautiful, and amazing, and a Definite MUST READ!

#NewRelease #Review CONTRACTED by Marni Mann @MarniMann @jennw23

Years ago, I was burned by a woman.
I forgave, but I haven’t forgotten, and it’s a road I’ll never go down again. 
My career has become my life instead. I’m Max Graham, the biggest music agent in the business. Women love me, but I don’t do love anymore. I’ve found another way to meet my needs.
Eve Kennedy—stylist to the stars and total bombshell. By far, she’s the most daring woman I’ve ever had in my bed with a sexual appetite as ferocious as mine. 
We might just have the hottest sex life in Miami and LA.
We don’t date anyone else—although, sometimes, we invite someone for a night. We travel the world, and I lavish her with gifts. But she knows my career comes first.
And the best part? For the past two years, she’s been happy with our arrangement.
Or so I thought. 
I’ve survived heartbreak once before, but this one could be the end of me.
Add to Goodreads:

Eve and Max know how to make it hot. Hot sex, hot intensity, hot mess!! I think I may have liked these two the most! This was the third story in this series, and it keeps getting better and better. I want the world to read this book! It is EVERYTHING!! Get this book!!

A New Englander at heart, she now lives in Sarasota, Florida with her husband and their two dogs who subsequently have been characters in her books. When she’s not nose deep in her laptop working on her next novel, she’s scouring for chocolate, sipping wine, traveling to new locations, and devouring fabulous books.

#Tour #Reviews #5stars THE UPSIDE OF FALLING by Meghan Quinn @InkSlingerPR @AuthorMegQuinn


Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone. Be somebody’s hero. That boy was me—Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore. My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t. I’m smarter. Stronger. A man. And I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost. Focus. Resolve. Determination. But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed. One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks. Smart. Charming. Beautiful. Rory changed everything. Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend. Each kiss faded decade-long dreams. And with one single incident, I fly off course.

This book took me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions which I'm sure the author intended and they did that with a beautifully written story.

I took a while to warm up to Colby, he's a young with a single-minded focus to the exclusion of everything else. His dream has always been to become a fighter pilot and just when he's close to achieving his goal fate throws a distraction in his path. Rory is a curveball that he never saw coming and he fights it but he didn't factor in her persistence 
Colby came across as rude and standoffish but the more I read I really started to like him. His relationship with his Gramps his biggest supporter was just adorable, the love they have for each other was written so beautifully. I loved Rory is such a strong character although she's given up her dreams to stay near her family there is no bitterness in her at all. 

I found this to be a book of contrasts, it was heartfelt and emotional and it was tender and romantic. I was so swept away by the story that I actually forgot I was reading a duet so when the end came I was left bereft and ever so slightly devastated. So now I wait for book two.

* * *

5 of 5 stars

How do you complain about a book that makes you feel everything? Apparently, it's hard, so I will just complain about my imaginary bond with the author instead. 

So here goes:

Meghan Quinn (the author of many awesome novels-this one included) is a meany. YES, you read that correctly. She is a meany. A mean person. A person who does mean things. What did she do? Well, I'm glad you asked. That way I feel obligated to share my heartbreak...(But only because you asked!)

Meghan Quinn wrote a book called The Upside of Falling. You've heard!?! Good, buy it and you will see all of my points. The Upside of Falling is part of a duet. Which means- she left me hanging. ME!?!?! Of all people, I mean really! It's like a vendetta. 

A duet. (Shakes head at the audacity)

The Upside of Falling is a wonderful, sweet, and whirlwind of amazing happy feels. It's the perfect fairytale. One night changes everything. Can you feel the freaking hearts and rainbows!?!?!?! It exudes the complete and utter contentment of falling in love. It's beautiful and peaceful. It's sexy and sweet. Everything is perfect!!!!

Remember I said fairytale though....yeah! That lightbulb in your head went on, didn't it? Fairytales always have something or someone that goes wrong...

I see it just hit you. The dimming of the rainbows and the not as happy spark in your eyes. You now know where I am. I'm in that place that drags you down. The not so fun part of the fairytale.

It's like all the color left Oz. So I'm here in this drab, lifeless version of my happy place waiting. Waiting for hope. Waiting for mercy. Waiting for my Happily Ever After! Come wait with me! (Misery loves company!)

Prove to Meghan Quinn we aren't taking this lying down! Declare war on her duet! We need The Downside Now!

Head turned down, pushing the sleeves of his white Henley up his arms, he swaggers toward me. His jeans hang low on his hips, held up by the same brown belt he wore the other night. His narrow waist directs my eyes to the center of his jeans, and I can’t help wonder what might be behind the crotch of his pants. And then there is his chest. Barrel like, broad and prominent. His thick biceps showcase his strength, and the fabric of his shirt stretches over his shoulders and forearms. Having spent a lot of time at the gym, I’ve seen every body type, but Colby’s is different. He’s strong, built, but not like a bodybuilder. His body seems to suggest the only kind of weight he’s been lifting is his own body, pushup after pushup. I can’t imagine there being barbells in his workouts, but I can imagine logs, cadets, and heavy machinery. He has working muscles, the kind you earn from hard, dedicated work on the field. In a word? Impressive. Walking up to Stryder, he grips his friend’s shoulder and says something into his ear. A smirk crosses Stryder’s face before he moves over to our side of the bowling alley and takes Colby’s place. Is he leaving? Already? Might as well at this point. It’s not like he’s going to talk to me, not after my pathetic attempt at a bet. I should have known I was going to hang out in the gutter all night. It’s where I usually am when I’m bowling. I blame the ball. The thing has a vendetta against me. Sighing, I prop my chin in my hand and watch Stryder expertly toss his ball down the lane, getting a strike . . . once again. And just like every other strike, he pumps his arm up in the air and celebrates. We get it, you’re good, no need to— “Hey.” That voice . . . Stunned, eyes wide, not able to move, not wanting to scare him away, I keep my eyes trained forward, soaking in that beautifully deep voice of his for a brief moment before saying, “Hey.” “Can I sit here?” Still keeping my eyes trained forward, I say, “Sure.” My body tingles with awareness of how close he is to me, that fresh laundry scent invading my senses, prickling the little hairs on my arm. My body leans toward his, wanting a little more, searching for anything else he might give me. I don’t know why he’s choosing to engage me in conversation, but I’m sure as hell not moving while he does. “Sorry about tonight,” he says and he actually sounds sincere. “Why are you sorry?” I mumble. Reaching around, he takes my cheek in his hand. The callouses on his palm rubbing against my skin is a welcome sensation. As I’m turned toward him, I steady my breathing. I’m having a hard time slowing my heart rate because of his close proximity, and the unexpected touch shooting a wave of heat through my veins. “I’m sorry you didn’t get to ask me any questions. I didn’t think you were going to suck that bad.” A playful smile tugs at his lips, and my heart sinks to the floor. Oh God, he’s so gorgeous, especially when he smiles. Matching his smirk, I say, “I didn’t think I was going to suck that bad either.” “I feel bad.” “You should.” That garners a laugh, deep and throaty, the sound cloaking me like a shield, protecting me from the outside world, bringing me into a little bubble where we are the only two that exist. “Ask me a question.” Shocked, I swallow hard and say, “Really?” He nods and holds up his fingers. “You get three.” “Oh, three? Wow, I feel like you just gave me the key to your soul.” Rolling his eyes, he adjusts his stance on the barstool and leans back, giving us some space, our knees still knocking into each other. “Easy killer; it’s just three questions.” “Yeah, three questions I didn’t have before.” Tapping my chin, I try to think of good questions, but now that I have him willing and waiting, nothing comes to mind. I wasn’t prepared for this, he caught me off-guard, and now I feel I can’t be strategic about my probing. “Hmm . . . what do you like to do on the weekends?” “Jump,” he answers. Searching his eyes, lips quirked, I say, “Uh, you’re going to have to be more specific than that. What kind of jumping are we talking here? Like jump roping? Because that seems kind of weird to do on the weekends, and if you tell me you’re in some kind of jump-roping club at the academy, I’m not going to believe you.” His lips curve up as he scratches the side of his jaw. “Jump out of airplanes.” Oh. Oh. That’s . . . Uh, that’s really hot. “So you just casually jump out of airplanes?” “I’m part of the Wings of Blue, the academy’s parachute team. We jump every day, at least two to three times a day after class and before dinner, depending on wind and ceiling limits. On the weekends, some of the guys, including Stryder and me, go to Springs East Airport and do civilian jumps. The more jumps we get in, the higher the chance we’ll be considered for big demonstrations, like parachuting into football games and major sporting events for the Rockies and Broncos.” Ummmm. Did anyone else just hear how many words he gifted me? And seriously? Does the man have no clue how incredibly sexy he is when he talks about something he loves? The expression on his face . . . “Wow, that’s . . . that’s really hot.” I chuckle. “Sorry, I don’t mean to fangirl over your parachuting, but I guess I wasn’t expecting that answer. You just jump out of planes?” He slowly nods. “Every day.” “Anything to get you up in the clouds, huh?” “Yeah,” he answers shyly, rubbing his jaw. “Okay, next question.”


Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped. Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking. Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four-legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

#NewRelease #Reviews FIXED FOREVER by Laurelin Paige @CandiKanePR @LaurelinPaige

Fixed Forever (Fixed book #5) by Laurelin Paige

Release Date: June 25th 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance



Hudson Pierce-

You act so high and mighty, you and your perfect pregnant wife Alayna. With your perfect child and your perfect home.

You weren't always perfect. Your past is filled with misdeeds.

Does your wife know all your secrets?

Would she stand behind you if she did?

You think because she’s on bedrest you can protect her? How sweet.

Sleep tight, you two.

- An Old Friend.

Amazing! I was so excited to delve back into the world of Hudson and Alayna Pierce to see what everyone is up to! To prepare, I even listened through all the audibles this spring, lol. This book did not disappoint and I felt reconnected with all these characters I love so much. I really enjoyed the mystery/suspense factor as well! Someone is out to get them! I can’t wait until my friends can read this book, too! 

* * *

Fixed Forever is like a family reunion. It has familiar faces, names, and people. It has drama. It has happy moments, sad moments, and Tracey in your face moments. Totally a family reunion of sorts!

It felt like being home, at least. Hudson and Laynie have always had a special place in my heart. They are their own world. So when someone(s) from their past are on a path to destroy their world, I needed to be front and center. Between my calming speeches for Alayna and my own rage-filled need to beat someone, I found myself falling victim to the same ploys as our dynamic duo. And I wouldn't have it any other way!

Fixed Forever is the start of something...
And Hudson Pierce intends to finish it!
(Even with my swooning on the sidelines)
But you know what they say...the road to Hell is paved with good intentions!

Good luck Hudson and may the odds be ever in your favor! (Lol.😉) Seriously, this is Hudson Pierce when aren't the odds in his favor!?!

If she’d needed a day or two in bed, upset and processing and obsessively looking through pictures of the event on social media, what would that have mattered? I trusted her to come back to me when she was through her anxiety. Maybe that was the key. Maybe she wasn't punishing me —but rather, was testing me. Seeing if I was capable of actually letting her go to work and not interfering. Not showing up, cold and demanding, when she lost track of time. Because in truth, I was the one who wasn't strong enough. For all that I blamed her for giving in to her overactive mind, I was the one who worried too much. Who was overprotective. Who couldn't handle the thought of her suffering, even only slightly. She was the one who alerted me to possibilities, her mind skittering from one thing to the next even as she stayed my rock. The truth was, without me, Alayna was still brilliant and clever and lovely and big-hearted and enough. But without her, I was nothing.

About Laurelin

With over 1 million books sold, Laurelin Paige is the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today Bestselling Author of the Fixed Trilogy. She's a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there's kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn't seem to complain, however. When she isn't reading or writing sexy stories, she's probably singing, watching Game of Thrones and the Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She's also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn't do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio.

Author Bio

Crazy woman from a remote location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since ... forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball - I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I'm clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.

I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there's your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair - both a curse and a blessing - and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can't understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.
