I have sucked lately

You deserve so much more than this. I have been reading and just not had the energy to get up and write any reviews on the blog. I apologize. You deserve way more than this. Let's play catch up.

I just finished L&S Duet by Brittainy C. Cherry. WTF! That duet is totally in my top 10 for the year. When you can go through so much mental turmoil and not have anyone there by your side. Nobody that can take you out of the dark pits of depression. It is amazing the way that Brittainy is able to tap into these characteristics and the pain that they feel. Landon is hurting so much from all of the pain that he is experiencing from the death of his father-like uncle. Landon doesn't like watching those around him who is always happy and don't have a care in the world. He despise those who lives that life... That is until the bet he ends up making with Shay, his nemesis for so long. This story will take over your heart and soul. I have no other way of saying, this is a duet that you do not want to sleep on. Have your bottle of wine and tissues nearby! Brittainy is totally my spirit author. She is the only author that can tap into my emotions like she does. I can not wait to read Greyson and Elenore's story! OMG! That is going to be bonkers and I know from what I read in L&S, that this story will need a few bottles of wine! Grab the duet today.

This has been an exciting and busy year thus far. It's crazy that it is almost over. As you all know, I am more than just a blogger, I am a PA. My Jackson Kane is back and writing and has a new publishing company, Hot Tree Publishing. They are amazing and it makes me so happy to see that he is releasing his books again. We have just re-released The Steel Veins MC Series. So far we have released Blow Out, which is one of my favorite MC books ever. Star and Remy's story just captivates my heart. The action and the love that comes from it is just unbelievable, especially after all that they have been through with each other.

Blow Out (Steel Veins #1) by ➜ Jackson Kane ➜ www.books2read.com/steelveins1

She should never have stayed.
I should never have kept her.
Bad guys like me? We crave violence, danger, and someone warm in our beds.
Someone like her? She is beautiful and surprisingly strong.
But saving her was a mistake for both of us. It would have been easier if I'd let my MC kill her when they were getting revenge on her uncle.
Now it's too late.
I don't want sympathy or forgiveness.
I just want her.
Blow Out, a motorcycle romance set in the Steel Veins Motorcycle Club, is filled with heat, nail-biting violence, and heart-racing adventure. Blow Out has been reedited, packaged, and is complete with NEW material.

Then we just released Burn Up at the end of last month. That is Hendrix and Maya's story. A woman trying to save her sister from their father. Hendrix being a man who just got out of prison. This story was nothing less than amazing. As all of Jackson Kane's books, it was filled with action!

She didn't see what was coming.
I shouldn't have let down my guard.
For five long years, I echoed the words honor, loyalty, and brotherhood off my prison cell walls. It's all that's kept me going. Now on the outside, seeing my club all twisted up, all I want is my freedom, freedom from everything—including that brotherhood.
Pres wants one last ride out of me then all my debts are paid.
Bullets, fire, a goddamned army, nothing will keep me from finishing this run! Except for the one thing I hadn't counted on.
A girl named Maya.

Yesterday, Jackson Kane's My Holiday Secret released and OMG! It is so phenomenal. It's a secret fake fiance book. Where when you are tired of being bothered about having a significant other, and so what else do you do, but take on a fake fiance.

It's time to shine the baubles, pull out the mistletoe, and prepare to swoon in the fun, heat, and mischief of Jackson Kane's smoldering holiday read, My Holiday Secret.

He's my holiday secret... and if anyone finds out, I'm screwed.
I did everything I could to get away from my family, but somehow, I've let my sister drag me home for the holidays. Now that I'm back, everyone expects to finally meet my fiancé.
The only problem is I don't have one. He dumped me, and they have no clue.
I can't let them find out I'm single. Luckily, after a one-night stand with a bad boy bouncer—the chiseled and grizzled Vance Mathis—I've got a plan: Hire him to be my fiancé for the family Christmas party.
When he pulls that mistletoe out of his pocket, I know he's only looking to jingle my bells. Even so, it's getting harder and harder to keep my hands off him.
I only wanted him to play pretend, but after our not-so-silent night together, I'm starting to want something real.
My Holiday Secret has been polished just in time for the holidays. With a new edit, a Christmas shine, and now traditionally published, kick back and prepare to swoon.

The Unlikely Even by LJ Shen! HOLY SHIT! Y'all know she is totally one of my favorites ever! Her words are amazing! This story is addicting. Heart-warming. Infuriating. It will totally make you feel all of the feels. This book was phenomenal and totally kept me wanting more. Oh how I love Mal so friggin much. It's rare when you see the male MC going so hard to be with the female MC. The passion and love Mal protruded really had me addicted. This book is not likely any other LJ book! I promise you that! You totally need to grab it instantly. 

Sometimes you meet people who are out of this world, so you make them a part of yours.
A one-night stand born from vengeance in a foreign land.
An explosive chemistry neither of us could deny.
We signed a contract on the back of a Boar’s Head Pub napkin that said if we ever met again, we would drop everything and be together.
Eight years and thousands of miles later, he’s here.
In New York.
And he’s America’s music obsession.
The intangible Irish poet who brings record executives to their knees.
The blizzard in my perfect, unshaken snow globe.
Last time we spoke, he was a beggar with no intention of becoming a king.
But a king he became, and now I’m his servant.
I’m not the same broken princess Malachy Doherty put back together with his callused hands.
I have a career I love.
A boyfriend I adore.
An apartment, a roommate, a life.
I changed. He changed, too.
But Mal kept the napkin.
Question is, will I keep my word?

I found my stillness, my space between breaths, when I was a kid. The answer is simple. If it hurts, I pour music on it.
After years of hard work, it's finally happening. Tragic has a number one album and we've gone from being discussed as one hit wonders to hearing words like meteoric mentioned alongside our name.
With two tours planned and another album on its way, we have a lot to look forward to. Playing in a different city every night, the shimmer and roar of the crowd, after parties and endless women.
My lifelong dream is in the palm of my hand until one phone call leaves everything hanging in the balance.

Excerpt

Axton steps up to the mic with a smile that no doubt wets women’s panties. “We have some songs for you.” He pauses to let the responding roar of the crowd die down. As it does, a woman wolf whistles, and he turns his head to wink at her, making the audience lose it. Thunder booms again, and he smiles. “You aren’t going to let some rain run you off, are you?” While the cheers and screams drown out everything again, he steps back, motions to Elliot and they begin to play.
I’ve streamed his music. I’ve heard him practice and sing at home. His talent was never in doubt, but this…I can’t even describe the experience. Everything else falls away. It’s fully dark outside and he’s backlit by deep blue lights as his voice raises goosebumps on my skin. The song builds and he moves around the stage like he’s part of it, like every inch belongs to him. His face contorts with such passion as he belts out the powerful chorus, then relaxes when the verse resumes in his low, soulful croon.
Eyes closed. Wet hair hanging in his face. So much emotion.
The crowd is as silent as I’ve heard them all day, hanging on every sound he makes. The drums kick in and the lights flash in tandem. His face is illuminated in a spotlight as he sings the last verse with more intensity, jumping and moving with the music as if he’s possessed by it.
He’s like a different being up there. There’s some sort of…magic. A force that seems to wrap around him, to cloak the entire crowd and pull everyone into that space with him. Into a world where he’s all that exists.
My throat tightens as I listen, my gaze glued to the man I’ve only recently managed not to despise. But who could fight against this? His voice is ecstasy charged by summer thunder, sweet agony wrapped in desire. It holds the promise of feverish love and whispered, filthy things.
The way the crowd reacts to him, reaches for him, the sobbing and screams, I understand it now. He’s chaos and calm, heady and all consuming.
And they fucking love it.

Excerpt

Chapter One


“Keep talking there, Twinkletoes, I’ll marry your dad and make you my stepchild.” I glared at three teenage girls who were destined to grow-up and be a drain on some man’s wallet as they walked past me on their way to the yellow Volkswagen Beetle.
“God, how manly.”
“I bet she’s single.”
“Hasn’t she ever heard of makeup?”
But seriously, what was up with teenagers these days? I was a fucking deputy in a fucking uniform and they still had the audacity to give me attitude. 
“If I ever say, that I want to be a cop, shoot me, will you?” One of the girls asked her friends.
“They won’t have to, I’ll do it for them,” I said in a low whisper. The entire time they were cataloging my flaws and their disdain for my job, I was straddling my sheriff’s motorcycle, while parked in a convenience store’s parking lot. The owner had been having problems with teenagers coming in after school harassing his patrons. Case and point.
A loud wolf whistle pierced the air, and I turned to find a boy hanging out of a truck. I rolled my eyes as the girls started to giggle. 
“Oh my god, Devin just whistled at you,” one of the girls said.
“I can’t believe it, does that mean he thinks I’m pretty?”
“Oh, Breezy, of course it does. You’re so pretty,” her friends reassured her.
“You really think so? I need to lose weight . . .” 
I smiled as I watched her twirl one loose strand around a finger. The only thing missing was her blowing a giant wad of bubble gum. It was all a little too cliché for me.
The boys in the truck pulled out and the girls got into their car and chased them. In their pursuit they plowed through an intersection ignoring a stop sign and cutting off several cars. 
I rolled my eyes. Fuck.
Nothing beat the feeling of twisting the throttle, the sun beating down on my back, or the vibration between my legs. Holy shit, I couldn’t believe that I just thought that, but it was true. There was just something about being on a Harley, and I was one of the lucky few who got to ride to my heart’s content since I not only rode for fun but also rode for work.
Okay, one thing beat all of that—the adrenaline rush I got every time I flipped on my lights, which I did a second before I went after the pale yellow Volkswagen Beetle. Some days, karma was a bitch and others she was your best friend, kind of like today. Yeah, Karma and I, we go way back.
“Well, hello, ladies, it seems that you were in a hurry.” I slightly lowered my sunglasses and smirked at three stunned teenagers. “I’m going to need to see your license and registration.”
“I can’t get a ticket; I’ll be grounded from my car.”
“You probably should have thought about that before you blew threw the stop sign and cut off those other vehicles.”
“But we came out of the parking lot and turned right. The stop sign is, like, right there, she already stopped and checked when she came out,” the blonde explained, obviously acting as the leader of the pack from the passenger seat.
“Number one, that doesn’t matter. You have to stop at every stop sign. Number two, you didn’t stop at the one in the parking lot either.”
“Just give me the ticket.” The driver turned to her friends. “I’ll just pay it before anyone knows.” 
“I’m actually writing you for two different tickets for failure to come to a complete stop as well as reckless driving since you cut off those other cars.” I glanced down at the registration I held in my hands. “Oh, this isn’t your name on the title of the car.”
“No, it’s my dad’s. He gave me the car for my birthday.”
“I’m going to have to call your parents since it is in his name.” I glanced down at her driver’s license and bit back a scoff. Breezy Kidd, yes, that was her fucking name, no shit.
“You can’t do that,” the girl in the passenger seat demanded. “This is harassment. You are harassing us.”
I leaned down so I was at eye level. “What’s your name?”
“I don’t have to tell you.”
“Umm, actually you do. All three of you have to hand your IDs over to me.”
The one girl in the back seat complied and passed hers forward, but the girl in the passenger seat was on my last nerve. “I don’t have it with me.”
