5,000 Likes on Facebook!

I never thought I'd see the day that my author page on Facebook would reach 5,000 likes! I cannot thank you guys enough! To show my appreciation, I'm going to do something a little different this time around. Instead of giving away my own books, I'm going to giving away books (new and old) from a few of my favorite authors: Kirsty Moseley, J. Sterling, Molly McAdams, A.L. Jackson, Tara Sivec and Jasinda Wilder!

The giveaway begins at midnight tonight!

Review of When The Sun Goes Down by Erin Noelle


Trina is a quiet, reserved music teacher at an inner-city elementary school. Because of the traumatic events of her childhood, she’s skittish of people in general, but men especially frighten her. However, when Lucca Ellis appears in her life, he refuses to take no for an answer. Will he be able to help her overcome the past that has kept her a prisoner for over eight years?

Kat is a woman scorned and out for revenge. Wronged by the men in her life, she thrives on belittling and dominating all men that she comes in contact with. Her end goal is to make the one man, the one who stole her life away as a child, pay for his actions, and she doesn’t care who she has to destroy to get there.

These two lives that both thrive on control, were never supposed to overlap, but anything can happen… When the Sun Goes Down.



What a unique story! I loved Ms. Noelle's Book Boyfriend series, but this one is so different!

The story is told from two POVs: Kat and Trina. Trina seems pretty average to those around her. She's an elementary school music teacher, and mostly keeps to herself. She only has one female friend, if you can even call her a friend, because Trina keeps her distance from her as well. She also doesn't do relationships, until Lucca Ellis shows up and stirs things up. I loved Lucca and thought he was the perfect character to finally break through her somewhat recluse lifestyle.

Next we meet Kat who is the complete opposite of Trina. As a child, she was witness to a terrible tragedy, and since then has made it her mission to get revenge. The way she goes about getting her revenge, bit by bit, is pretty crazy, but it's the only way she is able to cope and heal with the pain and loss she's had to endure. Leo, who has been there for Kat since she was a child and also works as her bodyguard and driver, was one of my favorite characters. He tries to keep Kat in check, protecting her from getting too deep into her vengeful scheme, while also caring for her on a more personal level.

From the beginning, I wasn't sure how this story was going to pan out, but once their secrets were revealed, my jaw about hit the floor! This was such a great story, but I wish the end had been a bit more climactic. I felt like it kept building up, but then fizzled out a bit as the story concluded. Although this is a standalone, I'm hoping we'll see more of Leo because it definitely felt like there was more to come from his story!

Review of Provoke by Missy Johnson


Mace Jordan was not the type of guy I expected to sweep me off my feet. I knew of the crowd he ran with, and they were bad news. But beyond that tough, biker exterior was a sweetheart, and one that treated me like his princess.
I liked being the good girl with the bad boy, but I never expected this. What I saw on his computer…I thought I knew him. 

But I was wrong. So wrong…

If there was ever a bad time for me to fall for a chick it was now, but from the moment I saw Leeta, she had me. There was something special about her, and I had to have her. But I also had a job to do, and I couldn’t let her distract me from that. I couldn’t let her discover that side of me either. But she’s not stupid, and I know she’s getting close. God knows what she’ll do if she discovers the truth. 

Or what she thinks is the truth.



4 Mind-blowing Stars!

This book really caught me by surprise, and I am so happy Missy gifted me a copy of the book! We first meet Mace and Leeta who have been dating for the last six months, but they seem to be on opposite ends of the spectrum. Leeta is a prosecutor and with a good girl attitude. Mace, on the other hand, is a little rough around the edges, and his jailed father and brother are notorious for their criminal background. Leeta and Mace couldn't be anymore different and yet, are still so fiercely attracted to one another. 

From the very beginning you can tell that Mace is keeping a secret, but you don't realize just how serious and painful that secret is until Leeta finds evidence of what Mace is really up to. To say that my jaw dropped while reading it is an understatement! I didn't see it coming at all and poor Leeta's heart is shattered by her discovery. As the story progresses, you find out just deep and dark Mace's secret truly is, and I felt a mix emotions up until the very end. 

Overall, I loved this story! It was very original and kept me on the edge of my seat. I thought it started out a bit slow, but it quickly picked up and blew me away! I definitely recommend this book and can't wait to read more from Missy Johnson!

All 5-star Reviews!

I have to admit, I am blown away by the reviews that are coming in for Unforeseen Heartbeat! As of right now there are twenty 5-star reviews on Amazon and two 5-star reviews on Barnes and Noble! I am so happy everyone is enjoying Maddie and Hunter's story. I can't even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed writing this book and becoming even more connected with the characters. Haha, for a while it seemed like they were taking things over, and I had no say whatsoever in the writing process. That's just how it goes! They write the story and I'm just their instrument in delivering that story to you guys. That's what makes my job so exciting . . . I never know what's going to happen next!

And in case you are wondering whether or not this can be read as a standalone, it can! I never intended for it to be read that way, since it's a continuation of the first story, but since Maddie and Hunter are the main focus of this book, it is still quite easy to follow; there just might be some confusion with some of the minor characters. I discussed it with my beta readers and blogs who reviewed Unforeseen Heartbeat as a standalone for the blog tour, and they agreed as well. However, I still recommend that you read Relinquishing Liberty first because it will give A LOT more insight into the backstory or Liberty, Shayne, Brett and Maddie.

Purchase links:

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes and Noble / iTunes / Paperbacks

I am also selling signed paperback copies of both Relinquishing Liberty and Unforeseen Heartbeat. For US residents, it's $17.00 for one book and $25.00 for two. Please email me at

And don't forget to add the next installment of the Second Chances Series to your TBR list on Goodreads!

Review of Pretty Little Things by Teresa Mummert


I was young enough not to understand that my life was different. Colin became the one person that I could count on to protect me. He suffered for the both of us by carrying the burden of our secret. 
We were the lucky few that got a chance to start over. A fake family, a new home and a pretty little life built on lies. But while our lives continued to intertwine, we were put on very different paths. Now it was only a matter of time before they collide and the beast behind the beauty is exposed.

My Review:

"If I could make her happy; keep her safe, I would redeem myself." 

Wow...blown away by this one, Teresa

Pretty Little Things grabbed my attention from the very beginning! I wasn't really sure what to expect at first, but damn girl, you know how to pack a punch right from the start! I think what I loved most was the originality of the story. I'm finding it more and more difficult to find well-written, original stories, but Teresa nailed this one!

Colin Blakely…now he's my kind of alpha male! Dominant, sexy, and downright mouthwatering. He has a hard exterior and a strong sexual appetite, but when it comes to those he cares about, he's fiercely protective. From the moment Colin met Annie, he knew there was something different about her, causing him to question everything that had been instilled in him since he was a child. But does he continue to let the demons from his past and the unspeakable things he has done, pave the way to his future? I'll leave that up to you to find out. ;)

I stayed up until 5:00 am to finish it, so if that doesn't tell you just how captivating this book was, I don't know what will! Trust me when I say this book is a must read!!!

Unforeseen Heartbeat Blog Tour Kickoff!

Unforseen Heartbeat


Used… Broken… Confused…

It only took one drunken mistake four years ago for Maddie Harrington to learn that when you fully give yourself over to a man, you should never expect anything in return. Since that night, her views on love have become distorted, believing men would only want her for the pleasure her body could bring them. She in turn finds herself hooking up with random guys, but never keeps them around long enough to see if there could possibly be something more.

That is…until Hunter Bryant enters the picture.

When the handsome pre-med student shows up in the right place at the right time, captivating her with his stormy gaze, she immediately pushes him away, thinking he’s no different than any other guy. The deeper Hunter delves into her life, trying to break through her iron-clad walls, the more she begins to question whether she is truly capable of opening her heart up to another man.

Maddie soon finds herself forced to make a difficult decision, one that will forever change both of their lives. Will she shut Hunter out of her life for good or will she finally open up her heart and allow herself the life she never dreamed she deserved?





“Oomph! Damn, girl…I think…you knocked the wind…out of me…that time.”
Hunter struggled to catch his breath, and I giggled because that was the fourth time in a row that I had brought him down. I straddled Hunter’s lap after I kicked out the back of his leg and used the momentum of his fall and my quick reflexes to subdue him. “Well, maybe if you weren’t such a wimp you wouldn’t be lying here after having your ass kicked by a girl.”
“Hey, my ass is just fine, thank you very much. I’ll be up and ready for another round, just give me a sec.”
I gave Hunter a sultry grin before lowering my body down until my breasts were pressed firmly against his chest. Leaning in even closer, I took his ear lobe between my teeth and playfully nibbled and sucked on the soft flesh. He drew in a deep breath, and I knew I was getting to him. “Hmm, I’m up for another round, but I have something else in mind.”
“Oh yeah, and what’s that?” he choked out.
My mouth brushed against his, and I traced my tongue over his lower lip. He let out a breathy moan, and his lips parted just enough to allow me entrance. Good boy. I loved the way his velvety tongue moved with mine, swirling and tangling together in some kind of sensual, exotic dance that was all our own. His full lips were greedy as they sucked my tongue in his mouth, gently biting me and sending a shockwave of pleasure straight down to my core. Unfortunately in that moment, I let my horny state get the best of me, and Hunter took advantage of my guard being let down. He tucked his arm under my leg and expertly flipped me onto my back, sliding between my legs and grinding his pelvis into mine so that I couldn’t escape. Little did he know, I had no intention of trying to escape. I never wanted him to let me go.
“You think you’re pretty slick, don’t ya?” He licked a moist trail up my neck while his hands had my legs pinned to my chest, giving him better access to rock his hips against me.
“Oh, I’m definitely slick all right.” I gasped as his tongue circled the sensitive spot just below my ear. “Maybe…maybe you should check and see if I’m right.”
Hunter pulled away from me and looked down between our bodies, taking in the position we had found ourselves in yet again. Things had quickly become heated between the two of us over the last few weeks, but just when things were getting good and I thought he might finally give in to his desires, he would quickly pull the plug on the idea. I couldn’t understand why he was being so difficult. I wanted him so badly that my body literally ached for him, and from the bulge pressing against his shorts, I was pretty sure he wanted me, too. Somewhere deep inside, though, he found the self-control to put a stop to our lustful wrestling match and pried his body away from me. I wanted to protest, but he always gave me a stern, knowing look. God, he was so frustrating!

Maureen Mayer was born, raised and currently resides in Buffalo, NY with her loving and supportive family and boyfriend of 9+ years. She’s always had a love for the outdoors, and when the city isn’t buried under snow, she can be found hiking, fishing, camping or lying on the beach. She’s a sucker for off-color humor, but holds a sweet spot for sick and twisted horror films. When she’s not writing, you can find her curled up in bed with her kindle, diving into a steamy romance novel and falling in love with the latest book boyfriend.


Hunter slipped his fingers into the sides of my panties, and I lifted up, giving him permission to slide them down over my legs. Tucking the purple scrap of lace in his pocket, I bit my lip, giving him a knowing smile. He slowly spread my legs apart and licked his lips, pleased to find my glistening pink folds peeking back at him.
“You have no idea how fucking sexy it is for me to find your pussy slick and ready, knowing that I did that to you.”
I sucked in a deep breath, surprised by his brazen choice of words, and almost cried out in sheer pleasure as his mouth finally lowered over my mound. He descended on me ravenously, kissing, licking, and tasting everywhere but where I craved his soft, velvety tongue the most. I bucked my hips, urging him to take what I knew we both wanted so badly. If the juices dripping down sex weren’t any indication of how much I wanted him, I hadn’t the slightest clue how I would have convinced him otherwise.
“Look at me, Madelyn,” he said gruffly, demanding my undivided attention.
My eyes fluttered open, and I drank in his beautiful masculine form. The muscles in his arms flexed as he slid to the edge of the bed and hooked my legs over his shoulders. He grinned up at me unabashedly, and his tongue flattened out as it brushed over my slit, separating my damp folds.
“Don’t take your eyes off of me. Not for a single second. I want you to watch me love you, every inch of you, with my fingers…my lips…my tongue. If you look away, I’ll stop, and baby…I know you don’t want me to stop.”
I watched his finger slip into my warm center, and he grinned as my sex clenched around him in response to the intrusion. He added another, gradually pumping them in and out of me and coating them with my arousal.
“Oh fuck! Don’t…don’t stop!” I begged.
“Never.” He nibbled gently on my clit, sending a shockwave of pleasure straight down to my toes. “Not until I have this pretty pink pussy coming all over me.”
My hands grabbed hold of the bed sheets while his tongue darted out, flicking over the sensitive, swollen bud at the apex of my thighs. The mixture of pleasure he was delivering with his dexterous fingers and skillful tongue was out of this world. Holy mother of God, it felt so fucking good!
I ran my fingers through his silky chestnut hair, holding him in place, and my hips continued to thrust up to meet his beautiful mouth. He removed his fingers from my hot, wet sheath, and his tongue delved inside, tasting my sweet honey. Just as I felt my orgasm begin to build, Hunter returned his fingers and crooked them against my inner walls, hitting my G-spot dead on. It didn’t take long for me to slip into a euphoric state where I was shouting his name to the heavens and coming all over his fingers and mouth.
Hunter slowly removed his fingers with my sex still pulsating around him, and he slipped them into his mouth, licking and sucking them dry. I just about came all over again watching him enjoy the fruits of his labor, and fuck, did I enjoy giving that to him.
