Badass In My Bed #1 by Rae Lynn Blaise **Blog Tour**

Title: Badass In My Bed #1
Author: Rae Lynn Blaise
Publication Date: June 23, 2015

Summary: My life is music. I play it, I live it, I breathe it. Next week, I start my dream job playing cello with the Boston Symphony. My father might finally be proud of me, and I… well, I’ll have my music.

Then I met Dylan—tattooed, badass, always-hard Dylan. He’s nothing like anyone I’ve ever been with before. Just one night can’t hurt me.

But sometimes when you play with fire, you get burned.

Insider (Exodus End #1) by Olivia Cunning **Review**

 Toni wants to be an insider. 
Logan just wants inside her. 

She’s finally ready to rock... 
Toni Nichols set aside her dreams to raise her little sister, but now she's reaching for the stars as the creator of a revolutionary interactive biography about Exodus End. She’s on tour with the rock band to immerse herself in their world, but how will she ever gain the trust of four veteran superstars who've been burned by the media before? Nobody said this was going to be easy. Then again, good things can come in hard packages. 

He's always ready to roll… 
Adrenaline junkie Logan Schmidt lives for the rush of playing his bass guitar before thousands of screaming fans. When he's not performing onstage or in the bedroom, he's looking for his next thrill in extreme sports. So why does a sweet, innocent journalist get his heart pumping and capture his full attention? Is Toni the real deal or just digging up dirt on his band? Logan’s eager to rock Toni’s world and roll her in the sack, but when she starts to get too close to his heart, she takes her insider look to a place he may never be willing to go.

4 I'm-in-love-with-a-rockstar stars

Toni is a completely naïve, clueless girl who has been the guardian of her little sister, ever since their father passed away. Because of her sister’s health issues she decided to be home schooled and now it's finally her time to prove to everyone that she’s worthy of being a journalist, not just because her mother is the owner of a big company, but because she's capable. On her quest for recognition, she decided to make an album about a band’s life and the band can’t be other than Exodus End, a rock band with sexy rockstars who don't seem to trust her enough.

Logan is the bassist of the band and for some reason he hits on her immediately. He wants to get in her pants and help her get more experience in her sexual life. Somehow her innocence draws him in and even though he tries to keep a distance between them, he can’t seem to stop being possessive over her, but he also can’t seem to be able to give to her what she really wants.

If you’re familiar with the Sinners, then you’re familiar with Olivia Cunning’s writing. The woman is a master when it comes to rockstars. And not just that but she can write some really steamy scenes.
For me erotica + rockstars => hottest books ever <=> Olivia.

Toni was so clueless that it ended up being funny and somehow I could picture myself in her shoes. She was a realistic character with insecurities, eagerness and with the excitement of having new experiences, but also mature and self conscious. She could be annoying at moments, but who is perfect anyway? Oh, Logan was perfect. ;) He was exactly the type of man that I would love to have by my side. Caring and lovely and funny and adventurous. He was truly amazing. Amen, Olivia! Thank you for giving me the pleasure of knowing Logan Schmidt!

Also, Birdie was such an adorable character. I immediately felt connected to her because of her CHD condition and then she won me over with her bubbly personality, her cute speeches and her actions. She was simply adorable and made me feel so much emotion, that I definitely didn’t expect from a book like this one.

"You're crazy"

"When it comes to you,
I don't know how to be sane."

My only issue in this book is the feeling of the insta love. Even though the book was huge and it wasn’t instantly heart and flowers, I felt like everything happened so fast. The fact that she was a virgin, but within an hour she was eager to open her legs and get laid, the fact that she wanted to be loved by him and felt betrayed when he wouldn’t confess his feelings (even though they were knowing each other less than a week!) these were the things that made me lower my rating.

Still, if you're craving a hot book with rockstars this is one you should definitely try.

Full Jacket/Cover

Meet Gavin in Heather’s newest M/M standalone romance!


Add RESIST to your TBR list at: http://bit.ly/1TLdUAZ
RELEASE DATE: August 9th, 2015

All Gavin Walker, bass player for the multi-platinum selling band, Sphere of Irony, wants to do is surf, play music, and occasionally get laid. The problem is that Gavin has a stalker. A potentially deadly one. The threats he receives always mention something about Gavin being gay, which isn't public knowledge since the record label wants to keep it quiet.

Mitch Hale used to track serial killers for the FBI. A live-changing incident led him to quit the bureau and start his own company providing computerized security for Los Angeles' wealthiest people. Mitch doesn't know anyone when he moves across the country from D.C. to California, and all he has for companionship is a pathetic string of failed relationships with women.

When Gavin's manager hires Mitch to find the stalker, the men instantly hate each other. Despite the constant fighting, attraction between the two blazes hot, confusing the former FBI agent. Spending time with Gavin forces Mitch reflect on what he's denied about himself for the last ten years. Listening to Mitch's plan to catch a madman thrusts Gavin's personal life out in the open for the entire world to see.

Can Gavin and Mitch stop fighting long enough to stop a stalker before someone gets hurt? Or will they stubbornly resist the feelings that develop when they're forced to work together?

This is book 3 in a 4 part series. It is a spin-off of the Famous Series. These can be read as standalones.

“I need a drink,” I mutter to no one in particular.
Adam Reynolds must hear me complaining because he places what I assume is a Jack and Coke in my empty hand.
“Here you go, mate.” He grins and I can’t help but smile back. The man’s enthusiasm is infectious.
Gavin, the sourpuss, is currently glaring at me from across the room. So much for us being an item. In the car, Gavin’s excitement at pretending to be boyfriends to lure out his stalker and the accompanying smile he gave had me sprouting questionable wood for most of the drive. Now he’s reverted right back to being a little shit. Hot and cold.
“Thanks, but I’m working—”
“I’ll take it, honey.” Gavin swoops in, steals the glass, and downs half of it before I can blink. I stand there, paralyzed, while I watch his pink lips caress the edge of the glass. “Thanks, dear,” he snaps, pulling me from my gawking. Before I can reply he turns and stomps off to pout somewhere.
I’m annoyed at his attitude and the distance he’s kept between us tonight. What. The. Hell. No way is he going to up and disappear on me at another party. Especially after we paraded ourrelationship in front of the media to lure his stalker out of the shadows.
“Sorry guys,” I apologize to Adam and his wife, Ellie. I was happy to finally meet them both after everything Gemma had told me about the couple when I gave her Adam’s phone number last year. Now I have to cut our conversation short because of yet another Gavin Walker temper tantrum.
Weaving through the crowd at the club, I follow Gavin to the back hallway that houses the kitchen and bathrooms. Once I’m out of sight of the other guests, I grab a shocked Gavin’s upper arm and shove him into the men’s room.
“Hey! Quit being an asshole!” Gavin wrenches out of my grip, turning to sneer. “I’ll put you on your knees again, Hale!”
The thought of being on my knees in front of Gavin sends a flush of heat up my body. I can feel the fire in my cheeks and by the way Gavin’s eyes widen, I’m betting he can see it too.
“I’m not the one behaving like a brat!” I growl in a low voice. Ducking, I check to make sure no one else is in the stalls. Once I’ve made sure it’s clear, I lock the bathroom door.
“Brat?” Gavin shouts. “I’m a brat?”
“Yes, you’re a brat. Ever since we had our picture taken outside, you’ve been unbearable to be around!”
“You’re not the one whose entire life was just turned upside down out there!” he yells.
I step closer, more furious than I’ve ever been. “Are you kidding me? You are so unbelievably self-centered!” Those damn hypnotizing full lips fall open in shock. “I was just outed too, and I’m not even fucking gay!”
Without thinking, I grab either side of his head, digging my fingers into that thick, blonde hair, and crush my mouth over his.
And it’s the hottest kiss of my life.
Just, damn.

Beneath, You're Beautiful (Beneath #2) by Tori Madison

 Four words continue to haunt me . . . 

You. Have. Breast. Cancer.

I associate them with the upheaval of my life to this point. The last few months have been a test of my strength . . . mentally, emotionally, and physically. Cancer is a monster. It preys on your mind and it consumes you, consistently reminding you of how your life used to be. Life before cancer. I was a successful business woman, running my own design firm, and was happily married to my college sweetheart. My life seemed perfect. Until it suddenly came crashing down all around me.

So, here I am, in the midst of treatment, incinerating the remnants of my shattered marriage and attempting to piece the rest of my life back together. With three amazing friends pushing me forward, the ‘post-chemo’ finish line is coming into view.

And then . . . there’s him. The man I never anticipated. The one who breathes hope and meaning back into my life. A man who kisses my scars and shows me that I’m beautiful. I never expected him. Hell, I never expected cancer. I’m finally ready to write my future, a future I never planned on, but one that is sure to exceed anything I ever imagined.

4 Emotional stars

Beneath You’re Beautiful follows Victoria on her journey right after the ending on Beneath it All. She had been in a difficult period of her life, not only fighting breast cancer, but also discovering who was worthy on being on her side and who wasn’t.

At the point comes Dr. Blake Forrester, her plastic surgeon, who was one of the people who supported her in this journey and now comes to request for a chance to be in her life, but not only as her doctor. Victoria needs to think about it, because she was dealing with a lot of shit lately and she’s not certain if she’s ready for something new, especially in her current situation, mid-chemo, bald and weak. She wonders why he picked her, when a hot, smart man like him could have anyone.

Blake made me feel normal. It was like we had known each other for longer than a few months, and I forgot that I was a woman with breast cancer.

Meanwhile, her past hits on her door again and she doesn’t know how to deal with that, when her wounds are still raw. At the same time, a similar fate seems to strike one of her friend’s life and Tori has to live all over this again, even though she’s ready to move on and forget about cancer.

My life had revolved around cancer for what felt like forever. It was nice to just be Victoria.

I really enjoyed Tori’s journey in the continuation of her story. I have to admit that this book made me more emotional and I cried until I turned numb. This book gave me a book hangover, but I’m a softie so don’t judge me. It was really beautiful watching how she was dealing with everything. Victoria is a strong woman, but even strong persons have their weak moments and it was really wonderful to join her in this self-exploration journey and how she was trying to buld back her broken pieces.

"You have to believe me when I tell you that beneath all the physical and emotional scars, you're beautiful. I want to be part of your life and I want you to be part of mine."

I loved once again her friendship with the girls, I generally love how this series shows the power of the friendship and how important friends can be in our lives. Because let’s face it. We all have a friend who will push everyone away when they get a new boyfriend-fiance-husband. Victoria had her friends on her side throughout her journey, not only when shit hit the fan, but before that and after that and I admired that in this book.

Also, Dr. Blake, man, he was so lovely, hot and caring. He was just so perfect and I think we all need a Blake in our lives. He was understanding and you couldn’t help but fall in love with him. As for Noah, all I have to say is

Last but not least, I would rather have more details about Tori's & Blake's relationship than details about cocktails and candy, but this didn't make me enjoy it any less. And yes this book speaks about cancer and it won't be the lightest read you've ever read, but it's realistic, educational, since I've learnt a lot about breast cancer through this and emotional.

PS: If you're wondering if this book has a HEA: YES IT DOES!! :D

3 stars 

Kerrigan is a 23 year old girl who is finally moving out and goes to live in Redwoods, after she found a picture of her mother at that place. For some reason her parents had been secretive and they didn't want their sheltered daughter to go, but she found a position as a personal assistant at Vaughn Enterprises and she won't deny her dream job, just because her parents are over-protective.

When she visits her new office, everyone acts like they know a secret, that she doesn't. There she becomes the personal assistant of the hot owner, Mr. Damon Vaughn, who according to her new best friend and neighbor, Bryce, is an asshole. She feels a pull with her boss, even though he's dating Lucia, a hot model and Kerrigan could never compete her, instead she wants to be like her. At the same time, she starts having weird dreams, the place feels familiar, plus many secrets seem to be surrounding her. 

Ever since moving here everything seems a little off. Not in a bad way, just in a way that seems familiar yet completely new.

I have to admit that this book surprised me. When I requested this book I had no idea that this was paranormal romance (PNR). I thought it would be a regular contemporary romance, but this definitely was a surprise. I'm not a hater of the genre, so I wasn't disappointed. 

At first I was curious and I admit that it had a dosage ofsuspense and mystery. I can't say I felt a great connection with the characters, but I liked Bryce, I enjoyed the dreams and her transformation and Damon's POV. I'm curious to read the rest of the series, since the book ended with a cliffhanger. 

Overall, it was an okay read, but I felt like something was missing. Maybe because the hero had a relationship and I didn't see any kind of romance between them or maybe because it made me think that the heroine had a thing for his girlfriend instead. Hopefully the next one will have more romance & more adventure and it will be longer, because this felt like a novella.
