I ran away from the glitz and privilege of my famous New York City family to this small-town Texas college to find myself. I didn't expect to find him... ...the muscular, tatted bad-boy who would soon become my obsession. He was broken, lost, and voiceless ... just like me. His eyes smoldered me with one look. His touch awakened the woman inside me. And through his lips, his perfect, plush, kissable lips, he drew out the inspiration deep in my soul I did not know was there. I needed to believe that he could save me. I wanted him to help me find my voice at last ... the voice that would set me apart from my tragically perfect family, the voice that would finally break me free ... If only he could hear a word of it.   The College Obsession Romance series centers around a group of friends and the relationships they form during their time at a small-town Texas school. They are angsty, steamy new adult novels with HEAs and NO cheating. Although they are obsession-themed romances, there are no stalkers or psychos!

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 5, 2016
Viola Banks had music in her blood. As an aspiring song writer, she grew up wanting nothing more than to have her words sung for all the world to hear. But that changed when she fell in love and married a man whose ambitions became more important than her own.
And when it all fell disastrously apart, she realized she was left with nothing but shattered dreams and empty promises.
A fairy tale without the happy ending.
Trying to pick up the pieces, Viola decides to move to Los Angeles for a new beginning.
Her chance to find the voice she thought she had lost.
Wyatt Jenson’s life was settled. He had a job. A girlfriend. A future.
Moving back to L.A. to take over the family business was the last thing he wanted. But obligation called and he found himself putting down roots in the last place he ever thought he would be. He finds himself the new owner of String Beans, the local music hotspot and coffee shop.
It only takes one night, one song, one random encounter, and lives can change forever.
Viola has to learn to open a heart that’s been broken. 
Because the only way to move on is to remember how to love.
“I’m so hungry,” Callie said.
“Then let’s go,” Dallas answered, locking his door.
We got to the street and had started walking toward Callie’s car when Dallas stopped walking.
“What’s wrong?” I asked.
“Just waiting for Wyatt.”
“Wyatt?”
“Yep,” I heard Wyatt say behind me.
“Um, guys, my car only holds four,” Callie said.
“Well.” Jolie grinned and I knew she was up to something. “Callie, why don’t I ride with you and Dallas so I can get the real story on my girl here. And Vi, why don’t you take Wyatt in your car? All set?”
“Sounds good.” Callie smiled.
“Works for me,” Dallas added. They started to walk away, leaving me alone with Wyatt.
“Where’s your car?” Wyatt asked while I looked at my friends with wide eyes.
Pure. Fucking. Evil.
I will get you all back—at least that’s what I tried to convey with my eyes, but all I heard was their laughter.
“This way,” I said, pointing in the opposite direction.
I climbed into the driver’s seat and waited for Wyatt to join me inside.
He started laughing and looked over at me. “They’re not subtle, are they?”
“Not even a little.” I smiled. “Sorry about them.”
“Listen, full disclosure, I’m very interested. But I know you have things you need to deal with, so no pressure.”
I opened my mouth to speak, but nothing came out. How could it? Wyatt winked sweetly and I shook my head, laughing at him.
“You’re something else, Mr. Earp.”

Blog Tour: Against the Wall by Tracy Burke

Title: Against the Wall
Series: Fuckboy Series #1
Genre: Erotica
Author: Tracy Burke
Release Date: May 19, 2016
Wanted - Fuckboy. Full-time hours, daily pay, 60/40 cut, you keep all tips. Must be appealing to the eye, have a body to die for, and be open minded to new adventures. Call 555-FUCK to get started today!
Down on his luck and hard up for cash, Colton Pierce answers an ad for a job as a fuckboy.
What's a fuckboy you ask?
Colton's about to find out.
Warning: This book is EROTICA, with M/F/M, M/M and M/F relationships, and it's extremely hot!
Her eyes were glassed over and he could tell she was still tipsy from all the champagne they’d had. Colton didn’t care that they were both half drunk. He wanted to fuck her and if she wanted to fuck him, he would give her what she wanted. He had to please the customer, right?
He ran a hand up her thigh and back over her ass, ripping her panties off in one quick jerk. Her pussy was free for him to use and as she wiggled around he knew she wanted him just as badly. Jerking her forward, he slammed her onto his thick cock, driving it up inside of her until he was buried to the hilt.
“God damn.” Colton’s eyes rolled back as he relaxed against the seat, giving them both a moment to adjust.
But Addie didn’t want time to adjust to his size. She wanted to fuck him until she soaked his cock with her juices. She felt his hands grip her hips as she rocked on him. Her pussy pulsed, her need so overwhelming she wanted to explode instantly. She needed him. She needed him inside of her, pounding her pussy until everything else was a blur. She wanted to hear it, their bodies smacking against each other in a frenzied need for release.
Addie let go, riding him hard, pushing him into her as far as he could fit. She wanted it to hurt so good. She mixed the pleasure with the pain and let it carry her to the edge of her desires. When her pussy tightened around his cock she threw herself forward, crying out as she exploded all over him.
She had waited for this all night, knowing from the moment she met Colton that she wanted to ride his cock until he painted her insides with his come.
My name is Tracy Burke. I live in Canton, Ohio. Not because I want to. Just because life works out that way. I’m 38 years old but I feel like I’m 50. Don’t we all? I am a multi-genre author… you’ll see lots of different things from me. Besides writing, I also enjoy art and music. I love to read, play video games, and go for midnight dessert runs.
   
I have four kids. One boy (17) and three girls (16, 14, & 9). I’ve always wanted more children but to be honest, my youngest broke me. My mental status took a dive with her and it has never recovered. HAHA!
   
I’m an animal lover and I try to do what I can to support any animal cause that I come across. I have two cats (Rosey and KiKi), two dogs (Mocha Jean and Paisley Mae – the dumbest dog on the planet), a hamster named Squid (WTF!), and a revolving door of Betta and Goldfish.
   
Anyways, enough rambling from me. Check out my website for the longer version of this bio. Write me a fan mail or a hate hater mail, either way I’ll answer it when I have time. Check out my books, tell me what you think, and don’t forget to post a review.
   
I look forward to hearing from all of you!

Blog Tour: Every Pane of Glass by HB Stumbo

Add on Goodreads
Several miles south of Devil’s Lake, Michigan, lies a town whose charm is trumped by its name. Devil Town may be beautiful and unique, but it offers no remorse for locals who have left the city limits. Val Stevens is a local born and raised, and after an eight year hiatus, she’s come back to town to stir up some old flames. Cracked like glass from life’s quirky twists of fate, Val keeps to herself and wards off the local “Devilers”, like a bad disease. But even someone as fiery as Val, can’t deny the appeal of a friendship with an intriguing stranger, or the ghosts of her past.
With the help of Anderson Pane, Devil Town’s newest resident, Val unearths pieces of herself she has lost along the way, while chipping away at the edges of those who caused her to shatter. She quickly learns that in order to face her future, she needs to forget everything she thought she knew about her past. A task which proves to be equal parts shocking and healing.
Can Val walk among the shards of who she was in order to find out she is? In a place where secrets run deeper than the depth of Devil’s Lake itself, the answer bubbles to the surface, in a twisted turn of events, history, love, and even death.
Have you ever had the feeling that your life is slowly falling apart? I was having that feeling as I left Devil Town, but it wasn’t slowly happening. It was rapid like gunfire.
Pop, pop, pop.
I heard it then, and I felt it, too. The cracking. It was spreading. It was running up and down my arms and legs, creating deep crevices in its wake. I let the pieces of myself fall off and scatter onto the floor. When I left Jay’s house the night before, I left pieces of myself there, too. I was crumbling like a cement statue that sat out in the rain and sun for too many years.  
I drove down Main Street and watched shards of myself scatter. The breaking started when I was twelve, it was finally settling in now, though. Jordan wasn’t the sole reason I was shattering, but he was the pebble that caused the final crack in me. The one with the powerful thrust that hit me with the force of a wrecking ball. The final blow.
Piece by piece, I crumbled and fell to the floor of my car. There was hardly anything left of me. I was all blood and guts, and my shell was gone. My safeguard was down. I was vulnerable. Crumbling stone and broken bits of who I was were left in the dust as I drove out of Devil Town. Except, I wasn’t as strong as cement or stone. I was fragile and thin. I was glass, and I was shattering, piece by piece. I became those tiny little fragments that cut you unknowingly. Those pieces that become lodged in your feet or fingers. Painful little pieces that you can hardly see at all. That’s what was left of me.
I left myself in pieces in Devil Town, and I never looked back.

HE'D TAKE A BULLET FOR HER 

His key witnesses dead, Texas Ranger Garrison Travis had to protect innocent bystander Kenderly Tyler. Her crucial evidence had two very dangerous Texas crime families willing to do anything to keep her quiet. But Garrison's undercover status had branded him a killer, and now the bad and the good guys were after them both. 

Hiding out with a handsome protector, on the run for her life, was so beyond anything Kenderly had imagined. While there was more than just adrenaline pulsing between them, the Ranger vowed his job was his life. Dare she wonder what would become of them should they actually make it out alive?


Review:                                  5 Stars

Not much on Police stories, but this one was rather cool, Texas Rangers who ever thought they could be this good. Crime, death and passion do well together. Page after page I was pulled in further and further as Kenderly and Garrison fight for their lives, fleeing from the Mob and everyone who is on the Mob payroll.
It was fun reading and going through it page after page.

An Avon Romance

Review:                              5 Stars
Montana Hearts: True Country Hero is a heartwarming, sweet romance with a little twist of mystery, that I just couldn't put down. I loved watching Jace & Delaney's romance develop from acquaintace to friends to something more, especially Delaney's sidestepping all his questions.  I really liked how the author developed Delaney's character the beginning of the book she was afraid to speak up, afraid she wasn't good at anything except raising her daughter Meghan, who you will fall in love with, but gradually she started to get her confidence & at the end she was a total different person.  Montana Hearts: True Country Hero had everythng that this reader enjoys in a good romance, laughs, sweet adorable little girl, nosy but caring family & friends, & a few tears & a sexy cowboy. If you are looking for a heartwarming, sweet romance with a little mystery I recommend you pick up a copy of Montana Hearts: True County Hero.  Darlene Panzera has received a new fan in this reader!

EskieMama Reads Review: A Daughter's Dream by Shelley Shepard Gray



Add to Goodreads


Blurb:

In Shelley Shepard Gray’s second book in her Charmed Amish Life series, a young teacher and farmer discover they have much in common, especially when it comes to healing old wounds from the past…and finding love in one another.

Rebecca Kinsinger has always dreamed of being a teacher. But when she’s given the opportunity she’s been waiting for at Charm Amish School, she’s dismayed to discover that teaching is hard work—work she’s afraid she’s not very good at. 
That is, until Lilly Yoder joins the class. A thirteen-year old who’s just lost her parents, Lilly is in need of someone like Rebecca. For the first time since starting her new job, Rebecca feels a sense of purpose. But when she meets Lilly’s uncle, Jacob, his good looks and sweet, easy-going temperament are hard to ignore. How can she even entertain romantic thoughts of Jacob when his niece is her student?

Suddenly becoming Lily’s sole caregiver, Jacob Yoder never thought he’d be a single parent—or a farmer. Having been living in Florida as a carpenter, Jacob feels more at home wielding a hammer than a backhoe. The only bright spot in his life is Rebecca Kinsinger. As Lily and Rebecca develop a bond, Jacob’s fondness for the pretty teacher grows, too.
But when a fateful accident brings them together, Rebecca and Jacob must choose between duty and desire. Will they follow the path before them? Or set out to find true happiness…and true love?


Review:                              4 1/2  Stars

I fell in love with the Kinsinger's & Charm in the first book in the series The Charmed Amish Life & Shelly did not disappoint in this book either.  A Daughter's Dream was a  sweet, charming, refreshing clean romance,  once in awhile this reader likes to a break from the sex scenes in a lot of romance books & this book was a nice break from that.  This book was more than romance it was about faith, greving & following your dreams, but sometimes your dreams aren't always what you thought they were.  This book had everything this reader enjoys in a book family, small town atomsphere, a little romance, laughs & a few tears. If you looking for sweet charming book to read, I recommend you pick up a copy of A Daughter's Dream & find out why this reader loves The Charmed Life series.

EskieMama Reads Review: Touched by Love by Melissa Foster

Blurb:

Fiercely independent Janie Jansen has always believed there were worse things in life than being blind, and she’s spent her life proving it. She’s moved away from her overprotective parents, built a life in New York City, and is one of the top technical editors in her company. That is, until an unfortunate accident turns her life upside down and she’s forced to give up the very independence she’s worked so hard to achieve.

Firefighter Boyd Hudson pushed past his tragic past and is weeks away from accomplishing his ultimate dream—being accepted into medical school. His intense focus on his goal while working three jobs has taken its toll. With a trail of failed relationships behind him, Boyd is painstakingly aware of his limitations and avoids girlfriends completely—a difficult task given his attraction to one of his co-workers.

When Boyd comes to Janie’s rescue, she’s forced to accept his help, and Janie discovers there’s more to the sexy-sounding office flirt than one-liners. Their connection deepens as Janie heals, but it turns out that Janie isn’t the only one who needs healing. Boyd’s painful past comes back to haunt him, threatening their relationship and forcing Boyd to reevaluate everything he knows about himself.



Review:                                  5 Stars

A love story, am a sucker for them, always have been and always will be. This one thought had a angle that I did not think was there. Both her characters were to say the least very interesting. Janie her female character is as strong as they come, but she is blind. Boyd the male character has his own problems to overcome, that stem from a tragedy that happened to him when he was but a child.
The Author brought these characters together and wove a magical story of love, discovery and trust that comes with love. I loved this trip through the story that took me from pain loneliness, love and back again through it all.

Blurb:

The moment detective Reed Novak steps onto the crime scene, he knows the case is going to rock his world. A beautiful young woman murdered at home. No sign of forced entry. No motive. She’s obviously not the killer’s first victim, and Reed’s instincts tell him she won’t be his last. Reed’s first clue comes via a mysterious text that links to a dating profile, but even more intriguing than the clue is the person who sent it.

As a white-hat hacker in the Delphi Center’s cyber investigation unit, Laney Knox sneaks into some of the deepest, darkest corners of the Internet looking for predators. Laney would prefer to stay away from Austin PD’s most recent murder case, but she can’t ignore the chilling similarities between that crime and her own brutal attack years ago. Laney offers to help the sexy lead detective, but he wants more from her than just a promising tip—Reed wants her trust. Laney resists, but as their relationship deepens she’s tempted to reveal the closely guarded secrets that could make her a key witness…or the killer’s next victim.


Review:                                  5 Stars

Wow I managed to enter a world that I knew existed but not to this extent, The author took me on a trip that meandered from the Police to the FBI to hackers and oh lord she even weaved a love story in there.
It was well written and kept me on the edge of my seat, it was as good as the Book writen by Catherine Coulter on the FBI series, so thank you for a wonderful trip.
