DESCRIPTION/Blurb

Grief changes people.

Brittany used to be a normal teen. She ate like one, slept like one, and had typical teenage mood swings. But after she found her best friend dead, everything changed.

Grief might explain her loss of appetite and her lack of sleep. It might even explain why she sees her dead friend everywhere she goes. But it certainly won’t explain why everyone she touches develops bruises or why she’s attracted to the smell of blood.

And, she’s pretty sure grief dosen’t make you want to rip apart your boyfriend just to get closer to his beating heart.

But what happens when it’s the choices we make, not the creature inside, that proves the monster is in us all?

 A Change of Scenery by Debra Parmley

Review below:

I love the pairing of Cyree and Warren. Why? A belly dancer and a Navy Seal in a futuristic setting, you’ve got to love that.

 It was a good read, but it left you with unanswered questions. With this story you get both characters POV which I find myself enjoying more and more. I’d be interested to see more of these characters because I just feel that it ended way too soon.  Maybe some more background, especially with the future setting.

If you’re looking for a story about finding strength and heart, this is a read for you. Debra Parmley, you are now being “followed” on Amazon and Goodreads. I’m looking forward to checking out your other books. Good luck with everything past, present, and future.

Days of New (Release & Review)

Days of New by Meg Collett

HAPPY RELEASE DAY!!!

a paranormal mystery/romance serial series…

SPEAKING OF THE DEVIL

SpeakingoftheDevil.v1.Amazon

Set in the same world as the bestselling End of Days series comes the darkly comedic stand-alone serial spin-off, Days of New.

Clark St. James, self-professed man-candy with pink hair and duct-taped boots, didn’t ask to be the leader of the Nephilim clans or to have ancient angel magic contained in the unwanted tattoos on his arms. And most importantly, he didn’t ask for the holy angels to get their panties in a twist and ravage the earth during an angel civil war.

Instead, Clark is making lemonade out of life’s lemons. With vodka. And a splash of whiskey just because.

It’s up to the Descendants of Enoch—an order of humans meant to protect the holy angels while on Earth—and Clark’s Nephilim to set this destroyed world back on its axis. The angels in Heaven are busy repairing their city and rebuilding a new form of democracy. In Hell, everyone is adjusting to a new form of leadership after Clark killed Lucifer, prince of the fallen.

Technically, it was an accident. But people keep forgetting that.

Just when things were beginning to get boring, someone starts murdering Descendants in very…unique ways. Ways that incriminate Clark. But there’s always a calling card beside the bodies: a single burnt black feather. And Clark only knows one fallen angel that got crispy fried.

Apparently Lucifer is back. And he’s pissed off.

Review of:

Speaking of the Devil

If you are anything like me, and loved the End of Days series, you will love this serial spin off.  It’s dark and has dash of humor. Although these reads are stand-alone, you will want to enhance your reading experience and grab the End of Days series first.  You won’t regret it.

I’ve missed Clark, so being brought back into this world was a treat. Clark is left to rebuild what was is in shambles from the chaos that was left behind from the war. Death, dreams, and more challenging things are thrown at him.

This is a fast paced read with plenty to keep your attention. Meg is one of my favorite authors. Dive in, and find out why.

FULL OF THE DEVIL (book 2)

FulloftheDevil-Amazon

As an angel from the Throne choir, Camille knows war. It’s what she was created for. She’s captured and killed and conquered. She’s been on the frontlines of every angel battle ever fought since the creation of man. And she has the surly attitude to prove it.

But she’s never been in love before. What she feels for Clark is her greatest weakness, and she fears it’ll be her ultimate ruin. Because to love Clark is to stand in the shadow of the greatest angel ever made: Michaela, the Angel of Death. Camille highly doubts there is any room left in Clark’s heart for her.

Love hurts, and Camille is used to killing whatever tries to hurt her. Or looks at her funny.

Clark St. James has problems—problems that have landed him in jail with the most unlikely of…roommates. It’s not good timing all around. The Descendants of Enoch’s precious order is collapsing from the lack of leadership. The Nephilim are in disorganized shambles. And the refugees are panicking. It’s chaos. And Clark can’t do a damn thing about it.

But you better believe that Camille sure as hell will.

Review of:

Full of the Devil

You are in for a ride with this one. Clark is possessed, locked up, and has no one to rely on but his friends. If you thought things couldn’t get any worse, think again. Without someone to lead the Descendants and Nephilim is disarray, how will another war be prevented?

With Camille working out her feelings and emotions where Clark is concerned, how could you not read this?!  It’s another amazing fast paced and attention grabbing read. Loved it!

BETTER THE DEVIL YOU KNOW (Book 3)

Betterthedevilyouknow-Amazon

They say insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome. Lucifer doesn’t need that definition to know he’s gone mad. When he came back from the dead, he only had thoughts of revenge and taking back what he’d lost: Hell and his army of fallen angels.

Except there’s only one flaw in his evil plan: He’s falling in love with the most unlikely person. But who could love an ugly thing like the devil? And Lucifer can’t bear to be hurt again. He’s already crazy enough.

The last thing Clark cares about is Lucifer’s love life, especially when Camille is missing and an entirely new threat has arisen called the Loyalists of Adam. But this new side of Lucifer may mean that Clark can get Camille back alive and possibly prevent a new war too. It’s a dangerous notion and one that could get everyone killed.

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that falling in love during times like these would be a better definition of insanity.

c0552-reviewed

Review of:

Better the Devil You Know

You just can’t stop reading this series. Better the Devil You know picks right back up where book two left off. When you start turning the pages, you get a twist. Lucifer is still raging, wanting everything back and isn’t found of the power Clark has had bestowed upon him. This book makes you wonder if war can be stopped by love, especially since things are not so black and white.

You may be left with a few questions, but the surprises in this one will tide you over. I’m just sweeping through this series and I can’t wait for the next.

Devil in the Details (Book 4)

Releases 5/18

Devilinthedetails-Amazon

“Clark was human, Nephil, Descendant. He was good and bad. He was the dirty magic of evil angels. He was still the pink-haired kid who had fallen into a cave and found a broken angel. He was a reaper and a savior. A lost boy who just wanted his friends to stop dying.”

Peace can be as deadly as war, and someone won’t survive.

A three month modelling contract in Paris.
 

 

Two strangers drawn together by fate.
 

 

A stalker hell-bent on keeping them apart.
 

 

Selene Michaels is determined to never let anyone make her feel inferior again. After a painful divorce, she finds herself in Paris on a working holiday, hopeful that this will be the opportunity she has been waiting for. She intends to have fun and maybe find someone to flirt with; someone who will show her a good time, treat her right. What she does not expect to find is Remington St. Germain and his adorable son, Adrien. Remington is intense, devastatingly hot and a Prince Charming on the outside, but a dirty talking, insatiable devil behind closed doors and not the type to give up on something that he wants. Adrien makes her loss almost bearable. Selene soon realizes that life with Remington is not only interesting, but adventurous and dangerous. Someone is eager to keep Remington and her apart, and will go into great lengths to make sure that happens. 
 

 

Remington is at a crossroads. He can either let Selene go, forget about her. Or pursue her with determination, just like he does everything else. Otherwise he will be right back where he was before she came into his life. The clock is ticking, and danger looms closer. He will do anything to save the woman who is fast becoming a part of his soul.
 

 

Sometimes life gives you a second chance. But what happens when danger threatens that chance?

Evil poisons everyone. Period. Our mouths water when we sink our teeth into what we have always craved. Surrendering to our desires by biting off delectable piece of the forbidden fruit is nothing more than a meager confession: Poison tastes sinfully sweet,”—Confessions of the Big Apple Debutante, by blogger Miss Snow White.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I specialize in dark, paranormal romance – think “happy ever after” but with a twisted, dark chocolate center. Real-life romance isn’t only filled with hugs, kisses, unicorns, and rainbows. True-love can be more thoroughly described in times of darkness and tribulation. It’s in those harsh moments where you see what a person is truly capable of – both the good and bad. Sometimes prince-charming isn’t always on time, and the glass slipper is a little snug. However, it doesn’t mean Charming is not Mr. Right, and who says every shoe is the perfect fit?
 
 This little gem of a story reminded me that fairy tales aren’t just for children. Snow White, the Huntsman, and the dwarves are twisted into an adult read that tantalizes your senses and will intrigue you like no other.

With this story, you dive right in with flashbacks, business toil, and surprises at every turn. Though, I’ll admit it took a bit to connect the pieces to feel like I had a good grasp at the beginning of the story. However, once you’re there it’s time to buckle up and enjoy the twisted little ride.

If you love a read with attraction and a side of taking a big bite right out of the forbidden fruit, this is a great one to grab.  Another great read from Sarah J. Pepper. The Color of Ink received a copy in exchange for an honest review. (4.5 Stars)

 Today’s Feature & Review

Stacy and Her Stepdad Collection Two: Forbidden Taboo & Menage Collection 

by Ruby Foxx

Genre: Taboo Erotica
 
 
Ruby Foxx is the pseudonym of a New York Times bestselling author of erotic romance. 

Stacy and Her Stepdad, Collection Two tells Stacy’s next two stories. 

When my mom threw me out, I went to my ex-stepdad, Ray, for help. That first night, when I climbed into his bed in the middle of the night looking for comfort, we both found ourselves falling prey to an overwhelming attraction neither of us could deny. 

Stacy and Her Stepdad’s Best Friend. 

Now we are living together, and sleeping together. That is, until his best friend comes to stay. Now I’m sleeping alone and missing what Ray and I shared… until one morning I wake up to see Jake asleep on the couch, his covers tossed aside, and him totally naked! And ready to go! 
I try to resist, but with Ray gone for the day and this hot, hard man sooo available… well, what would you do? Find out what I did in Stacy and Her Stepdad’s Best Friend. 

Stacy’s First Menage 

I knew I needed to tell Ray about it. And I expected him to be mad. Maybe even punish me. What I didn’t expect was that he’d get super turned on and… well, make a suggestion about something exciting that he, Jake and I could do together. I had no idea this would turn into Stacy’s First Menage. 

The Color of Ink’s Review:

Although light on story, this collection does lead toward the side of steamy. There is nothing wrong with diving right in. I would have loved to see both of these collections combined into one full length read.

Now that Stacy and Ray are living together, where do you go from here you ask? Well, you add a new partner to the mix. Ray’s business associate Jake, to be exact.

If you’re looking for a short erotic read that is big on the taboo and menage, then this is a read for you. I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Warning: This taboo story is for adults only. It contains erotic encounters between a sexy older man and a younger woman. All characters are 18 and over 

 

About Ruby Foxx

When I write stories, they’re short and sweet. And I don’t mean romantic sweet. I mean the sweet, melting hot eroticism of two lustful lovers succumbing to their passion.
And when I say short, I mean I get to the point and pound it home. Fast.
You’re reading these stories to get to a good place, right? yes, I know what you want. J So I’ll entice you, seduce you, then guide you to the climax.
Believe me, it’s all about the sex. But isn’t that what you want?

Ruby Foxx says

I’m the alter ego of a New York Times best-selling erotic romance author. Think of me as the evil twin. ;)

My other half may write erotic love stories that push the limits, but I don’t know what limits are. When you crave the titillation that only the fulfillment of your wildest fantasies can give you, look no further than my short, sexy stories.
I’m a very bad girl who will ignite your desire, propel you to the heights of passion, and leave you panting but satisfied.  You know what I mean. ;)
My stories will bring you right to the heat, from foreplay to climax in a quick heady read that lasts exactly as long as it needs to. With so very much to do and so little time, a gentleman should not overstay his welcome.

It’s time to take it UNDERGROUND!

Underground Serial
by Cassandra Carr
Genre: Black Ops/Military, Action, Suspense
Off the Grid, Underground 1- The seemingly impossible has happened. The unthinkable. Those I trusted most have betrayed me. I’m a hockey player, and gave control of my finances to my parents so I could concentrate on my game. Big mistake. They stole from me, bankrupted me, in fact. And then someone come looking for money I don’t have and I made a terrible mistake; one that will haunt me forever.
But now someone has found me and offered a new start. I would no longer be a hockey player, I wouldn’t even be an actual person, totally off the grid. I’d be a shadow, fighting crime for an organization that’s underground, literally. Do I want that life?
If I go back, what kind of life would I have? Probably one in prison orange. The choice to join Underground is painful, but necessary. As my hockey coach always said, though, pain is weakness leaving the body. I will not be powerless ever again.

Review of Off the Grid

This first installment of the underground ten part serial is a quick read introducing you to how Ethan, an ex-hockey player, came to work for Underground. His life comes to a crossroads. With his career over and life imprisonment, or even worse looms overhead he is offered a way out.

With his choice made, Ethan trains and becomes another version of himself, Slapshot. With an interesting story coming into play, I really wanted to fall in love with the character. I’m hoping for a little more connection with Ethan in the next installment.

Even though I felt the story moved a little too slowly, it went by too fast. I would have loved the pace to pick up and for it to be a wee bit longer, even knowing it’s a serial. Overall it is a good read, and I enjoyed it. My curiosity has me wondering how one goes from hockey player to an operative within a covert organization.

Creating Slapshot:
I’ve left my old life behind and officially joined Underground. It appears no one knows where I am or even if I’m still alive. I don’t know how I feel about that. My friends thinking I’m dead leaves a hole in my heart, but I’ll drive myself crazy if I obsess about it. So rather than allowing myself to wallow in self-pity or anger about what’s happened, I’m throwing all my energy into training. You would think that whole “elite athlete” thing would make everything easier, but all these new techniques I need to master—hand-to-hand combat, weapons training, surveillance procedures—are kicking my ass.
For my whole life, I’ve only had one identity. Ethan, hockey player. Now that sense of self is gone forever, slowly being replaced by my new identity, Slapshot. Surreal doesn’t even begin to describe this transformation. But the more I find out about the world around me, the problems I ignored for the most part as I played a game for an obscene amount of money, the more I want to make a difference. This is not a game. It’s real life, and I have the chance to be a hero. It’s going to take everything I have—or have left, to do it.
Review of Creating Slapshot

The second installment picks right up where the first left off. Ethan begins training and you meet more of the underground team. Creating Slapshot picks up the pace a little and everything begins to flow better.

While Ethan learns more about underground and what everyone can do and what is expected, he struggles a little with the loss of the life he is leaving behind. The conversation between characters really helps get to know them and helps the story take off.

I’m starting to get into the story now, and I’m looking forward to the next installment.

Blurb for Underground Serial- Follow this 10-part serial throughout 2015 featuring Ethan, aka Slapshot, a hockey player whose life is ruined, forcing him to disappear forever. Ethan joins Underground, a black ops organization and is trained as a deadly operative. There, he meets Ciana, a woman with a dark past of her own. As Ethan and his Underground colleagues embark on dangerous missions worldwide, he finds a new purpose in life. But will his former problems come back to haunt him?
Review of Initiation by Fire

Things are moving right along with the third installment of this ten part series. Ethan goes on his first mission. He goes through a phase of self-doubt and is worried about being in a life or death situation.

Although the team helps to offer insight into Ethan’s character, I would have loved for it to come directly from the source. A little less narrative and more action would really keep things moving.

I’m enjoying the read, but really wish it was a full length book instead of the serial. I’m looking forward to seeing what becomes of Ethan and his new skills.

Taboo Erotica

 

Stacy and Her Stepdad, Collection One: Forbidden Taboo First Time & BDSM Collection (Stacy and Her Stepdad Collection Book 1) 

by Ruby Foxx

Genre: Taboo Erotica
 
 
 
Ruby Foxx is the pseudonym of a New York Times bestselling author of erotic romance. 

Stacy and Her Stepdad, Collection One tells Stacy’s first two stories. 
Stacy’s First Time 

When my mom threw me out, I went to my ex-stepdad, Ray, for help. That first night, when I climbed into his bed in the middle of the night looking for comfort, we both found ourselves falling prey to an overwhelming attraction neither of us could deny. 

Disciplining Stacy 

Unfortunately, persuading him into a repeat performance is proving much more difficult. I’m sure he’s avoiding me. He works every night and locks his bedroom door when he goes to sleep. 

When I decide to persuade him into rekindling that part of our relationship, things get exciting. 

Warning: This taboo story is for adults only. It contains erotic encounters between a sexy older man and a younger woman. All characters are 18 and over.

About Ruby Foxx

When I write stories, they’re short and sweet. And I don’t mean romantic sweet. I mean the sweet, melting hot eroticism of two lustful lovers succumbing to their passion.
And when I say short, I mean I get to the point and pound it home. Fast.
You’re reading these stories to get to a good place, right? yes, I know what you want. J So I’ll entice you, seduce you, then guide you to the climax.
Believe me, it’s all about the sex. But isn’t that what you want?

Ruby Foxx says

I’m the alter ego of a New York Times best-selling erotic romance author. Think of me as the evil twin. ;)

My other half may write erotic love stories that push the limits, but I don’t know what limits are. When you crave the titillation that only the fulfillment of your wildest fantasies can give you, look no further than my short, sexy stories.
I’m a very bad girl who will ignite your desire, propel you to the heights of passion, and leave you panting but satisfied.  You know what I mean. ;)
My stories will bring you right to the heat, from foreplay to climax in a quick heady read that lasts exactly as long as it needs to. With so very much to do and so little time, a gentleman should not overstay his welcome.

I’ll have to admit, I was a little worried with this one. I thought this might even be a little too taboo for me. However, as it states the characters are 18 and older. With that in mind, the story was hard not to devour.

There are one or two instances I felt another word could have been used, but that didn’t stop the story from flowing. It’s a quick sexy read.
This read isn’t huge on story, but goes straight to the sex.

If you’re looking for a short erotic read that is big on the taboo and sex, then this is a read for you.
