NAUGHTY MOMS’ REVIEW

As a new blogger, I’m still getting by bearings and learning the mechanics of the blogging business. I started by signing up to do ARC reviews of a couple books and signed up with Callie Hart to review Fracture.  When I received the ARC to review I learned it was in fact a follow up to Deviant (Blood and Roses). So to familiarize myself with the story line and characters, I looked into downloading Callie’s first book. Because I’m a self-confessed Kindle eBook hoarder, I found out I’d already purchased this book and it was in line to be read. *yay me*. So I immediately hopped to it. 

I was immediately drawn in with the mysterious circumstances that the story began with. Within the first chapter I was intrigued with the situation Sloan was involved in and the mystery man she meets. The intimate scene was undoubtedly sexy and HOT. 

With dual POV; which I love, we not only see what is driving Sloan to do what she does, but we learn more about the danger surrounding this mystery man, Zeth and the life he leads. He’s the ultimate bad boy who’ll do anything that suits his needs. In his world there are no hearts and flowers. He doesn’t want any part of that. Women are only a means to an end. 

Both Sloan and Zeth find themselves drawn to each other and have a chemistry they can’t make sense of. Both denying it to themselves and each other. Zeth knows Sloan will do whatever it takes to get the information she needs and he’s willing to use that. 

I felt extremely drawn to each character. Sloan’s strong will and Zeth’s dangerous life compelled me to keep reading into the wee hours of the morning. I just couldn’t put my phone down… sleep be damned. 

The chemistry with these two was smoking hot with a whole lot of intrigue surrounding Sloan’s and Zeth’s lives. By the time I finished, I immediately opened up Fracture to find out what happens next. 

You’ll find yourself pulled in and you won’t want out. 

Fracture is set for release April 7th.  

COVER REVEAL: My Soul Keeper by Ker Dukey

What if your entire reality changed on you one day?

You wake up and your family and friends aren’t who you thought they were.
You look around, and the world isn’t what you thought it was.
You don’t even recognize yourself.
You and your reality are a complete mystery to you.
Simone’s life was about to undergo that disturbing journey. Love, lust, death, betrayal.

How do you fight the devil himself when he consumes you with lust?

How can you love someone who has come to take back your brother’s soul?
Shamar, soul keeper and son of Death, had never met such a unique soul before Simone. Captivated by her, he broke all rules to be near her — to love and protect her. But how do you protect someone from evil when the forces of good seem to be working against you?

When Lucifer himself crawled from Hell to claim Simone, what sacrifices would Shamar make to keep her safe?

Not seeing Simone all week left my craving for her unsatisfied and vibrating my blood with anticipation for when I could feed it again. New charges have kept me busy and the temptation to touch her when she was reaching out to me in her bedroom after the party nearly consumed and broke me. Distance was what I needed but now I need to see her again. I waited long enough; I have proven to myself that I’m strong and not a fool to human weakness.

Sensing her soul I appear close to her. She’s in a shop so I go to the coffee stool positioned opposite and order a drink. The girl serving me blushes when she hands me my change. I can sense her attraction to me; it radiates off her in waves and has her embarrassed because of it. I smile with a wink at her and drop the change into the tip jar. I hear her intake of breath and laugh quietly to myself as I turn and almost spill my cup onto Simone’s chest.

“Oh my go…,” she gasps and her eyes twinkle with recognition. A smile falls over her face, stilling my heartbeat. “We meet again.” Her soft musical voice flows.

“I’m sorry I nearly scalded your…” I look down at her impressive chest and back to her face, which is tinted with the pink flush from my gaze.

“Body,” I offer with a shake of my head, which earns me a giggle. It nearly floors me. Pulling a stray hair from her mouth, she watches my movements. Parting her lips, her tongue darts out to moisten them; I caress her bottom lip with the pad of my thumb, taking the hair with it across to her cheek. There’s an electrical storm erupting inside my body. Her eyes are glazed; everything around us has fallen into silence, we are the only two who exist in this moment.

My thumb retraces it journey to her mouth with a press of her lips she kisses it. My whole body crackles and tingles. She’s turned on and it magnifies my own arousal. Leaning forward without thought of consequence, I touch my lips to hers. Her body melts into mine; the taste of her red lips is like the sweetest forbidden fruit. The warmth of her tongue slips into my mouth and I meet it with my own: grasping her face deepening the kiss. Her supple body moulds further into mine, her breasts pushing against my chest, our hips pushing into each other’s. The whole world falls away and I feel like Heaven has claimed me and this is it; she is my Heaven.

“Holy shit!” a voice shouts out, ringing in my ears.

Simone pulls away, breathless, her pouty red lips still slightly open and swollen from my kiss. Her eyes roam my face with bewilderment. “That was…”

“Amazing,” I finish her sentence.

Her friend grabs her shoulders and turns her from my gaze. It breaks the spell. I notice we have gathered an audience as were standing in the middle of the mall making out like we were in a private room. She looks around and drops her face to the floor, embarrassed.  Lifting her chin, I whisper, “Never look down Simone, only up.” I bring my lips to her forehead before walking away once again.


When not lost in my mind of characters i can be found reading or spending time with family. I prefer a darker edge to my writing, not all life and love stories are light, some are grown from darkness. I was raised by a bookaholic. My mum started me on Anne rice as soon as i was old enough. I love losing myself in an authors world and create them for my fans.
