Chloe and Derrick have spent most of their lives together as friends and as lovers; they have formed a connection that few couples can make last. This duo is bound by one thing that no one can destroy. They have been touched by one another and no one can take that away.

That is until one of them is forced to make a decision and their lives take on a different path.

Can these two withstand the reality of what lies ahead? Are they able to hold a relationship together with just the mere fact that they may love each other? Is it possible to maintain a bond that no one else has been able to touch?

Chloe and Derrick may have the relationship others dream about, but sometimes things do get in the way and it can be impossible to forgive and forget.

Cover Reveal: Entangled by S.E. Hall

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00071]add-to-goodreads-button31Synopsis:
Things heat up, and not just the Georgia summertime, when Dane and Laney go head to head over plans for her new duplex. But Laney's got his number, and knows just how to coerce her bossy, domineering man. Spend the summer with the gang and find out...just how many is a crowd?
The members of the Evolve Crew are getting older; so is the content. Mature audiences recommended.


“Men shouldn’t know how to decorate anyway, using words like gaudy.” I let one brow raise and give him a suspicious smirk. “Do I need to learn how to fix the cars then? What if I get a flat?” “Oh baby,” he growls, his feet pounding the floor as he stalks toward me, “you questioning my manliness?” “Maybe,” I tease, slowing backing up. “Nancy.” My eyes dart anxiously around the room, mentally planning my escape route in this new territory. He laughs deeply, not a ‘ha ha that’s funny’ laugh, but more an ‘uh huh I’m coming to get ya’ sexy laugh. “Got it planned yet?” He grins knowingly, one eyebrow cocked. “Better run to wherever looks the most comfortable.” There’s no furniture yet, what is he talking about comfortable? Seeing the confusion on my face, he answers unasked. “Showing you how much of a man I am when I catch ya,” he creeps closer, “so I’d stay away from the tile, might hurt your back,” the mischief in his eyes ignites as he continues moving slowly closer, “or your knees.” Do I still have to pretend I don’t want to be caught? I love this side of Dane; the dominant, controlling, hunter than comes out more and more every day. The game’s precept itself is laughable; no one could question Dane’s virility. It seeps from his pores, an aura around him taking up all the air in a room. And he’s all mine. From his forever jostled brown locks and matching warm eyes, cocky lopsided grin and sculpted chest all the way to his eight back, that irresistible v and toned, tight ass- he is mine. “You wouldn’t!” I challenge, knowingly delightfully well that he would. “Oh baby, you know I can and will.” He flips open the button on his pants, that cocky grin suffocating me from where he stands, “I think you want me to.”

Cover Reveal: All the Pretty Lies by M. Leighton

Isn't it gorgeous?!? ALL THE PRETTY LIES is a New Adult Contemporary Romance filled with heat, lies, and romance. It is scheduled to be released November 12, 2013.


All the Pretty Lies
“Live, no regrets”

Sloane Locke has led a
sheltered life.  However, with a history like hers, she can understand why
her brothers and her father want so much to protect her.  She has gone
along with it for twenty long years, but those days are over.  For the
girl who never makes promises, Sloane has made a pact with herself that things
will change on her twenty-first birthday.  So when the clock strikes midnight,
Sloane strikes out to spread her wings and break a few rules.

In addition to inking
skin, Hemi Spencer possesses many talents. Controlling himself has never been
one of them.  It’s never had to be.  He’s lived a life of indulgence
for as long as he can remember.  Right up until tragedy struck.  Now,
he’s nothing but controlled. He’s a man on a mission, one who will
let nothing and no one stand in his way. 

Nothing in their lives
could’ve prepared Sloane and Hemi for what they’d find in each
other—distraction and obsession, love and possession.  But the one thing
they can’t find is a future.  Neither one has been totally honest.
And they’ll soon learn that the devil is in the details.  In the details
and in the lies.

How far will two people go
to live in the now when the now is all they’ve got?

Blog Tour: Review of Losing Eva by Jennifer Sivec

Losing Eva Blog Tour Banner


Brynn Michael has endured a horrific life. Heartlessly abandoned as young Eva, she was abused and victimized by the selfishness of others. Her early life renders her unable to truly let go and love. Despite everything, she finds her inner strength and overcomes. She allows herself to trust her childhood love, Adam. With the promise of having her own family, it looks as though Brynn may finally have the happiness that always seemed unattainable. But life takes a tragic turn and once again, Brynn is forced to face a life in turmoil. Will the arrival of a handsome stranger help turn it around or make it worse? When the past unexpectedly catches up with her, Brynn must decide if she will embrace it or move forward on her own. Is love and happiness within reach, or is her chance gone forever?

Melanie says...

I don't know where to book one, this book is written from a narrators POV. This series is just so sad and I kind of think that Brynn/Eva was a serial killer in a previous life because it seems as though she is being punished for something horrific.
This story picks up where book one ended. It started so hopeful and appeared that Brynn's life was finally going to stop reprimanding her for unknown crimes, but that was not to be the case. I can't really go into the story because there isn't a way of summarizing it in a way would not ruin the story.
All I can really say is that this book was heartbreaking in so many ways. Every time things started to go well for Brynn, life threw a curveball. It is full of twists and turns and is almost impossible to put down. The end of the last chapter was sad and the epilogue had my mouth hanging open. I will be anxiously awaiting the next book.

Meet the Author

Jen Pic

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember~journals, poems, short stories. I always wanted to write a novel and started several over the years, but for some reason I could never see them through to the end. Until Eva came along. I was abandoned as a child, at about the age of 2 or 3 which I strangely never gave a lot of thought to. Then I became a mother. When my youngest child was about 2, I watched him sleeping one night as I often did. But this night, I was gripped by this heart-wrenching realization that he was about the age that I was when my parents left me. Something stirred inside of me, and eventually Eva was born. “Leaving Eva” began as a story of a girl who was heartlessly abandoned, and then her story took on a life of its own. It was no longer the story that I began, and it became something else entirely. I’ve always been somewhat of a late bloomer, but I am happy to have finally gotten in touch with my inner Author. She’s always been there lying dormant inside of me, reflecting in other parts of my life. But now she is awake and alive, shining through me every day. I am very fortunate to have a wonderful supportive husband, two beautiful children, and an incredible family. I have a career that is rewarding and challenging and I get to work with amazing, funny, talented people every day. Writing has been an escape, a refuge, and an outlet for me. I feel so lucky to get to channel my energy and my creativity through my writing. With the Eva Series left open for a possible third book, I am moving on to a couple of other projects that are currently in the works. I hope that my readers will continue to stay with me through my journey as I grown and evolve.  I am so grateful for the support I’ve received and the amazing people that I’ve encountered along the way!

Cover Reveal and Giveaway: Better (Too Good #2) by S. Walden

Title: Better (Too Good #2)
Author: S. Walden
Expected Release: November 19, 2013
Hosted By: Romance Addict Book Blog -

Their relationship has been exposed, and now their lives are changed forever.

For Cadence Miller, the fast track to adulthood proves intimidating and frustrating. She’s a little girl lost—abandoned by her parents and uncertain of her future. She doesn’t think she “fits” anywhere. She’s eighteen. She wants to be older. And the result is both comical and heartbreaking.

Mark Connelly will do anything to provide Cadence a stable, loving home—to be her protector. But he’s just as broken and lost, and his heart won’t let go of his past so easily. He knows he must share his secret with Cadence. And he hopes his revelation won't tear them apart. He hopes it will draw them closer, and make their love better.

She made sure to look as inconspicuous as possible for her first day of classes: jean shorts, tank top, flip flops. She kept her hair down but pulled it off her face with a headband. She wore a tad bit of makeup. Nothing showy, but she thought first day classes warranted mascara and lip gloss, at the least.

She slid into a seat in the row closest to the windows. She didn’t bother to look for Michael. Or save him a seat. She still wasn’t sure about that guy. She felt guilty for not telling Mark about Michael’s kissing comment. She wanted a friend, but she was unsure if he was a good one. She scanned the room for somebody better. She needed a girlfriend. And there was one sitting directly behind her.

“Hi,” Cadence said tentatively.

“Hi,” the girl replied.

Cadence wasn’t sure what else to say. Neither was the girl. That was until she recognized Cadence.

“You went to Crestview High.”

Cadence’s face fell. “Yeah.”

“My friend went there. She graduated with you.”

Cadence nodded.

The girl leaned in and whispered, “Did you really have an affair with your math teacher?”

Blog Tour: Review of Love Resisted by Melanie Codina

Book 2 - Real Love Series
Melanie Codina


For Allie Baxter, love was never something she had to worry about. She was loved by her friends, her family, her husband … until the day it was ripped away. Losing love was the deepest pain Allie had ever endured, and it was an agony she vowed to avoid feeling ever again. Crippled with guilt over her loss, for five years Allie served her self-appointed exile from the daily comforts offered by friends and family, only to return and attempt to fit herself back into their open arms—even if she knew she didn’t deserve it. Mike Lawson was not something Allie expected; the love of a man was not something Allie was prepared to want. The spark of desire that had long ago died inside her suddenly returned, bringing the memories of her pain with it. She swore she would never allow herself to love again … but how long could love be resisted? 

Elle says...

Love Resisted is the second book in Melanie Codina’s Real Love Series. This story follows Allie Baxter and Mike Lawson who had supporting roles in the series’ first installment, Love Realized.

Love Realized portrays Allie Baxter as an absolute firecracker who is fiercely protective of her friend, Gillian, and has no qualms about teaching someone manners with her fists if necessary. What I love about her character in Love Realized is getting to delve deeper into her past and the layers that make up Allie. Underneath her tough exterior, she is guarded and heartbroken after the unexpected loss of her husband. Being able to see her vulnerabilities throughout the story helped to round out her character and make me like her even more than I did in the first story.

Mike Lawson, who took Gillian on her first post-divorce date in Love Realized, is perfect for Allie. Like Allie, Mike lost his wife and is now raising his son on his own. He is patient yet stern and determined to prove he and Allie belong together. I love his commitment and devotion to helping Allie cope and move on from the skeletons in her past. It is also very charming, yes charming, the way he bosses her around and puts her in her place when needed. He’s no pushover.

As far as the story line goes, prepare yourself with a box of tissues. Melanie wastes no time delivering an emotional throat punch in the prologue. There was a lump in my throat and I was completely invested in the story within pages. Alternating between tears and laughter, I consumed this novel in a matter of hours. I fell in love with each character from Love Realized all over again. Yes, I was even semi-won over by Gillian’s ex-husband Logan. He hasn’t 100% redeemed his self, but he’s working on it.

I highly recommend giving Melanie Codina’s Real Love Series a chance. Love Realized reeled me in and Love Resisted kept me hooked. I cannot wait to find out which character will be featured in the third installment of the Real Love Series!

Twitter:  @MelanieCodina

Melanie is an amazing mother of four, an awesome and tolerant wife to one,
and nurse to many. If you don’t believe her, just ask anyone in her family,
they know what to say. She is also a devoted chauffer, the keeper of missing
socks, a genius according to a six year old, the coolest soccer uniform
coordinator according to a twelve year old, and the best damn
‘mac-n-cheese-with-cut-up-hot-dog maker in the whole world. Well that last
title isn’t really official, but it’s still pretty cool to be called it.

When not being ordered around by any of the kids, you can find her with
her nose in a book or on the sideline of a soccer game cheering on one team or another. But that’s mostly because she has a thing for the coach. When she is not doing all of the above, you can find her obsessed with a group of fictional
characters all vying for a spot on the page of whatever she’s working on. It’s
a fun and crazy life to lead, but wouldn’t have it any other way.

Blog Tour: Review of Running in Place by L.B. Simmons

Book Title: Running in Place (Mending Hearts Book #2)
Author: L.B. Simmons - Facebook, Twitter, Blog
Tatum O’Connell:

Some call me a party girl. People see me as happy, full of life, with absolutely no cares in the world. They see what I want them to see. But no one knows me - really knows me. Not even Noah Reese. Mr. Perfect is always watching me, most likely judging every single imperfect thing I do. But, if Noah wants to keep an eye on me, that’s just fine. I definitely don’t mind. I just hope he doesn’t have any plans to save me from my new-found life of self-destruction because in order to save me, he will have to see me…
And I’m never going to let that happen.
Noah Reese:

Perfect. That’s me. That’s the only acceptable way to be, according to my father. Perfect grades. Perfect manners. Perfect athlete. Perfect SAT scores. Perfect college. And recently, I was accepted into the perfect med school. My future has already been mapped out for me and there’s nothing that can change that. Not even Tatum O’Connell. That girl is out of control, yet for some reason, I can’t seem to keep my distance from her. I watch her closely, hoping that one day she’ll let me in, but watching her lead her life down the dangerous path she’s on right now isn’t easy…
I have a feeling I’m about to find myself swept away by the hurricane that is Tatum O’Connell.
“Two fleeting souls,

Unknowingly tethered.

Too slowly drawn,
Impatient fate calls.
The jolting collide intertwines their lives
And splinters their walls.”
“Catalyst” – Noah Reese
Elle says...

Running in Place is the second installment in L.B. Simmons’ Mending Hearts Series. I really enjoyed the first book,Running on Empty, and had extremely high standards for the next in the series. For the record, my expectations were absolutely demolished. I was beyond blown away by this story, and Running in Place has officially become one of my all time favorite books! 

Book two follows the story of Noah Reese and Tatum O’Connell, Trace’s sister. Remember Trace? He ended up falling for Harlow (Alex’s best friend) in Running on Empty. Yes, it’s a tangled web of who knows whom and how they know each other. Running in Place can be read as a stand alone, but if we’re being honest, Running on Empty was such an incredible book, why not just do yourself a favor and read both? Seriously. Read both.

Tatum is a damaged good. Her monster of a mother has finally passed away, years after her father tragically died. She’s spent her entire life fighting to survive and because of this she carries around some serious demons. I loved her character. She is sassy yet vulnerable. You can’t help but absolutely love every bit of Tatum – flaws and all.

As for Noah Reese, there are no words. He’s sexy, smart and absolutely driven. Underneath his well-composed exterior, he’s a slave to his father’s wishes. Bound by a future that’s out of his control, Noah is counting down until he may finally be able to live a life for himself. Noah stole my heart. He’s one hell of a book boyfriend and there is something undeniably sexy about a man who is both fragile enough to have weakness and strong enough to protect. Again, I am speechless at just how thought consuming his character is. By the end of the book, he found a spot at the top of my book boyfriend list.

The characters are amazing, but the story itself is beyond phenomenal. There is love, struggle, utter heartbreak, and an ending so perfect you’ll be nursing one hell of a book hangover. Prepare yourself for a total sob-fest. Seriously. 83% is an emotional bitch slap. I couldn’t put the book down, but had to when I was crying (and snotting) so hard I couldn’t see the words through my tears. By the end of the story, I looked like I’d been hit by a freight train of ugly. This story is unimaginable perfection.

Do yourself a favor, drop everything, and fire up those e-readers. Running in Place is not only one of the best books in 2013, it’s one of the best books ever written. Since finishing this story, I feel ruined. I don’t know what to read next. All I want to do is start back at page one and read this over and over again. L.B. Simmons doesn’t hold anything back and delivers a raw, emotional masterpiece. It’s not always about finding true love, but about finding yourself.
