REVIEW : What Lies Behind by J.T. Ellison

RELEASE DATE : May 26, 2015
Waking to sirens in the night is hardly unusual for Samantha Owens. No longer a medical examiner, she doesn't lose sleep over them, but a routine police investigation in her neighborhood has her curious. When her homicide detective friend, Darren Fletcher, invites her to look over the evidence, she jumps at the chance and immediately realizes the crime scene has been staged. What seems to be a clear case of murder/suicide—a crime of passion—is anything but. The discovery of toxic substances in hidden vials indicates that something much more sinister is at play… 

As Fletch and Sam try to understand what and who they are dealing with, they are summoned to a meeting at the State Department. High-level officials are interested in what they know and seem to be keeping secrets of their own. It's up to Sam and Fletch to uncover what lies behind the deception as the threat of bio-terrorism is exposed, and her boyfriend, Xander Whitfield, may be in the line of fire. 

Unsure who to trust, Sam and Fletch find themselves up against very powerful people at every stage in the investigation. No one is who they appear to be and with every minute that passes, the danger escalates. It's Sam's most complex case yet and the terrifying reality is beyond anything she could have imagined.

Thanks to Net Galley and Harlequin books for the copy.

Sorry, it took me some time to finish this one with real life getting in the way. I tend to go for more fast paced mystery thrillers so this was a little slow on the build for me but it was enjoyable.

Yeah sorry about the lack of reviews lately, real life got in the way. Hopefully I'll be able to get in a review this weekend along with a Block Head and some other stuff.

Till then, peace and love.


Check out this fuck awesome trailer for American Ultra! I have been waiting for this since it was announced last year. I absolutely adore Jesse and Kristen and I loved them in Adventureland. Max Landis is a crazy ass genius for the script. Enjoy! Oh and thank you for the use of Hey Mama.

REVIEW: Beyond Innocence (Beyond #6) by Kit Rocha


Major thanks to the Kit Rocha crew for the ARC!

This series is my life. Honestly, it is. I make countdown clocks just waiting for any new bits to emerge and ruin me in its awesomeness.

This is book 6 in the beyond series, I am TELLING YOU NOW to go read the rest because you may want some character reference and because it’s just fucking greatness and this is a treat for you and me.

Beyond Innocence is the book of Jared and Lili. Just a little background, Jared sells sex to the rich and Lili just stumbled her way into O’Kane territory after making some mighty big waves in the sector wars.

REVIEW: Playing Dirty: Monkey Business Trio by C.L. Parker

Shaw Matthews plays to win, and he intends to snag a coveted partnership at San Diego’s hottest sports agency by signing America’s top athlete. Only one woman stands in his way: rival agent Cassidy Whalen. But eliminating the competition will be Shaw’s pleasure when he concocts an ingenious plan to seduce Cassidy and show the beautiful ballbreaker who’s the better man for the job. That is, until Cassidy turns the tables—and their steamy encounters start breaking all the rules.

Cassidy has worked hard to make it in a man’s cutthroat arena, and she isn’t going down without a fight, not even against the six-two alpha hunk whose rock-hard body awakens desires she’s never known before. As Cassidy shares night after night of unending passion with Shaw, the game begins to change. Now Cassidy stands to lose everything—unless a fiery contest of wills can become a winning proposition for two people who keep raising the stakes.

Thanks to NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group 

Praise the filthy smut gods for this gloriousness!

Hot Damn!

From start to finish, Playing Dirty did just that and delivered the hotness in spades. Each scene just got hotter and more intense by the page.

REVIEW : Nova and Quinton: No Regrets by Jessica Sorensen

RELEASE DATE : April 7, 2015
Today is the first day of Quinton Carter's new life. The toxic guilt of his past left him in pieces-but one girl unexpectedly put him back together. Thanks to Nova Reed, Quinton can finally see the world with clear eyes. She's the reason his heart is still kicking behind the jagged scar on his chest. And he would love to have her in his arms every minute of the day . . . but he's not ready yet.

Playing drums in a band and living with her best friends are just some of the highlights of Nova's life. But the best new development? Talking to Quinton on the phone each night. She wishes she could touch him, kiss him, though she knows he needs time to heal. Yet shocking news is on the way-a reminder of life's dark side-and Nova will need Quinton like he once needed her. Is he strong enough to take the final leap out of his broken past . . . and into Nova's heart?

Thanks to NetGalley and Forever (Grand Central Publishing) for the ARC.

Let me start by saying that I have not read the other parts to this series but I have read at least a handful of works by Jessica Sorensen. One of the things that continue to make me a new fan is her ability to draw out some serious emotions in her words. Her stories aren’t sappy or your typical happily ever after. Each story is both heartbreaking and uplifting.

REVIEW : Luckiest Girl Alive: A Novel by Jessica Knoll


As a teenager at the prestigious Bradley School, Ani FaNelli endured a shocking, public humiliation that left her desperate to reinvent herself. Now, with a glamorous job, expensive wardrobe, and handsome blue blood fiancĂ©, she’s this close to living the perfect life she’s worked so hard to achieve.

But Ani has a secret.

There’s something else buried in her past that still haunts her, something private and painful that threatens to bubble to the surface and destroy everything.

With a singular voice and twists you won’t see coming, Luckiest Girl Alive explores the unbearable pressure that so many women feel to “have it all” and introduces a heroine whose sharp edges and cutthroat ambition have been protecting a scandalous truth, and a heart that's bigger than it first appears.

The question remains: will breaking her silence destroy all that she has worked for—or, will it at long last, set Ani free?

Special thanks to NetGalley and Simon & Schuster for the ARC.

It took me some time to complete this book. Not because it was bad or anything because it is very far from that, but because it is just so incredibly disturbing. I may have put it in the freezer once or twice. Gosh I hope people get that reference.
