Many Reasons Why By: Missy Johnson *Teaser & E-Book Giveaway*

Many Reasons Why by Missy Johnson
Series: So Many Reasons #1
Publication date: February 29, 2013
Genre: New Adult Romance

Twenty year old Emma hasn’t left the house since she was attacked as a child. Now, with the impending release of her attacker from prison, Emma knows it’s more important than ever for her to regain control of her life. From her unrelenting nightmares, to her strained relationships, to her crippling agoraphobia, Emma feels as though her life is spiraling out of control.

When her professor, Simon Anderson enters her life, Emma must deal with feelings she has never experienced before.

Though both she and Simon know their relationship is bordering on inappropriate, neither of them are able to ignore the intense chemistry that is quickly developing between them.

What was supposed to keep her mind off the attack has left her more confused than ever. When there are so many reasons why you shouldn’t be together, is simply being in love really enough?

This is book one in a two book series.


Teaser :)

I watched in horror as Tom answered the call. I threw my face in my hands and collapsed down onto the kitchen counter. This was bad. I tried to block out his voice. I didn't need to hear what he was saying to know I needed to be very embarrassed.
“Asshole.” I muttered.
“Hello?” Tom didn't even bother to hide his amusement. “Emma? Yes she's here. And who may I say is calling? Simon. Right, finally. I've heard so much about you. Em doesn't shut up about you.”
I groaned, stumbling to the couch. I was so embarrassed. This was really bad. I threw myself onto the couch and buried my head in the arm
“Uh-huh. Right. Yes I understand that.” Tom nodded, his face serious, as if he was deep in the middle of an important meeting. “I do need to know what your intentions are toward my Emma. Are you planning on becoming intimate?”
“Fuck you Tom!” I screamed loudly. My face flamed. I wanted the couch to swallow me. I was going to kill Tom. It may take a while, years even, but he was going to pay for this.
“Right. Just be safe. And remember, if it's not on, it's not on.” He wandered out onto the balcony, knowing I wasn't likely to follow him out there.
Could this get any worse? I wondered how hard it would be for Tom to 'accidentally' fall over the balcony of my level 10 apartment with me still standing within confines of the apartment.
“Sure, I will put her on.” I felt the phone hit me on my back. I reached behind to grab it. I contemplated hanging up. This was beyond embarrassing.
No. That would only make things more awkward. I would have to speak to him eventually.
“Hello.” I mumbled, cringing.
“Well hello there.” He said, amused. Way too amused. He was loving this.
“Hi.” I responded, feeling embarrassed. And angry. I was so fucking angry.
“So, Tom seems like a nice guy.”
“Tom’s a fucking asshole.” I yelled, loud enough for him to hear. Tom yelled back an inaudible response. Simon chuckled.


Missy lives in a small town in Central Victoria with her husband, and her confused pets (a dog who think she's a cat, a cat who thinks he's a get the picture).

When she's not writing, she can usually be found looking for something to read.

Rush (The Game #1) By: Eve Silver *Book Blitz*

Release Date: June 11, 2013
Publisher: Harper Teen

Summary from Goodreads:
So what’s the game now? This, or the life I used to know?

When Miki Jones is pulled from her life, pulled through time and space into some kind of game—her carefully controlled life spirals into chaos. In the game, she and a team of other teens are sent on missions to eliminate the Drau, terrifying and beautiful alien creatures. There are no practice runs, no training, and no way out. Miki has only the guidance of secretive but maddeningly attractive team leader Jackson Tate, who says the game isn’t really a game, that what Miki and her new teammates do now determines their survival, and the survival of every other person on this planet. She laughs. He doesn’t. And then the game takes a deadly and terrifying turn.

There’s a flash of light, blindingly bright. Colored haloes obscure my vision. They dance and flicker and then disappear, leaving only a rectangle of light boxed in by the dark doorframe.

I see then that the door’s gone and in front of me are people. No…they aren’t people. They have limbs, hair, faces, but they aren’t human. After the first glance, they don’t look even remotely human. They’re pure, painful white, so bright they throw off a glare. They look like they’ve been dipped in glass, smooth and polished, but fluid. And their eyes…they’re a silvery color, like the mercury in the antique thermometer that my mom used to have at the side of the front porch.

When I was ten, I knocked that thermometer off with my wooden kendo sword, shattering the glass. The little blobs of mercury went all over the porch. I was a kid. I didn’t know better. I touched them, prodding the little balls until they joined the bigger blob. My mom swooped down on me and snatched me away, telling me it was poison. It could kill me.

I stare at the things in front of me: the Drau. I can’t look away.

Somewhere in the back of my mind, I remember Jackson talking about Medusa.
Don’t look at their eyes.

Their mercury eyes.

They’re poison.

They will kill me.

Made For You By: Vi Keeland *Dream Cast & Review*


Sequel to Belong to You

Jack and Syd spent a week in paradise.   It was only supposed to be a fling.  But life can be funny sometimes, and circumstances brought them back together again.   Together they seemed to have found their happy ever after.  But when Sydney is offered a chance at the career she has always wanted, she must leave Jack behind to follow her dreams.  Can their love survive long distance?  Sydney’s touring with a man every woman wants, but he only has eyes for Syd.   And an unexpected tragedy leaves Jack feeling remorseful.  Can the two find a way through to forever?

Book Excerpt

Jack shifted, easing my back onto the bed, and lifted his body over me, his forearms on either side of my head, absorbing the weight of his body.  The room was dark, but my eyes had adjusted and I could see the light in his eyes above me.  “Do you, Syd?”  He pushed a lock of my hair behind my ear as he spoke tenderly.

“I think I do.  You don’t want men looking at me.  I get it.   You don’t even notice the way that women look at you when you walk by.  I get the urge to smack them when I see them taking more than a peek.  So I can’t imagine that I would be happy if you were on a thirty foot display, perhaps with these sinful abs showing.”  I rubbed my handed across his hard abdominal muscles.

Jack was quiet for a moment before he spoke.  “It’s more than that, Syd.  Yes, the thought of men looking at your beautiful face and body up there makes me want to stay outside the coliseum and hurt every man that takes more than a friendly look, but it’s not just that.”

Jack’s eyes searched mine, looking for something before he continued.  “You’re mine Syd.  And I don’t want to share.  Not a picture, not a smile, not a touch.   All of it is mine.  Only mine.  You were made for me.  That sexy mouth belongs to only me.  I wake up every morning craving that body that wiggles beneath me.  That body that surrenders as soon as it’s filled with me.  It’s mine and I need it so bad it physically hurts when I reach over on the bed and find your warm body isn’t there.  So, yeah, I’m not happy about the picture. But it’s the rest of it that’s killing me.”  

The Author's Dream Cast


Yep, he’s the cover model from both books, but Daniel’s also an actor.  I couldn’t imagine anyone else playing Jack!


 Sydney – Amanda Seyfried           

Sienna – Megan Fox  

Justin – Jared Leto

Kyle –Colin Farrell  

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

I was born and raised in New York. I've been told more than once that I have a New York accent. It is pronounced cawfee, not coffee, right? I am one of six children, and come from a happy, albeit dysfunctional, family of "steps, halves, ours, theirs and his" children. I have three children, two girls and a boy. My son is the oldest and is a godsend. The girls, well, they are tweens and make me drink too much wine on occasion.

I am a boring attorney by day, and an exciting smut author by night! I actually consider myself a romance author, but my books definitely have steam in them, so I guess I am technically a romance-erotica author. I am also a HUGE reader and love Sylvia Day, Kristen Ashely, and EL James.

After years of thinking about writing my own book, I finally took the leap in 2012. I published my first book, First Thing I See, in January 2013, and was thrilled at the overwhelming success! Belong to You was published on April 4, 2013, and climbed its way to number 9 in the Amazon Erotica Best Seller's list in its first five days! The sequel to Belong to You is due out on July 1st, 2013.

A LOVE LIKE THIS by Kahlen Aymes *Interview, Review & Giveaway*

A Love Like This
Book Three: The Remembrance Trilogy
By: Kahlen Aymes

Married and settled in New York City, Ryan and Julia Matthews seek to start their family and enjoy their idyllic newlywed life together. Julia’s high-profile job at Vogue and Ryan’s promising career in medicine will surely set them up for everything they could ever want, their only obstacle seems to be finding enough time to spend together.

When a scuffle at Ryan’s hospital puts his life in danger, a colleague steps in to save him but is critically injured in the process. In a heroic and unwavering effort, Ryan manages to save her, but her injuries irrevocably change her life forever.

Though Julia’s gratitude urges her to befriend the woman, she feels pushed aside when Ryan, feeling indebted and laden with guilt, befriends the woman during her recovery. Julia puts on a good front, but as time goes on her resolve vanishes as the friendship begins to infiltrate what little time the couple has together and she is reminded of how her own relationship with Ryan began.

In Ryan’s mind he is doing nothing more than supporting a friend’s healing and is angry at Julia’s apparent lack of trust, despite his attempts to console her. When events get too much for her, a heartbroken Julia flees without telling her husband her destination or even if she will return.

When grief pushes him beyond what’s humanly possible and he is on the verge of losing his mind, he is forced to decide how much he will pay for his new friendship and Julia, what she is willing to endure in order to spare herself the unspeakable pain of watching someone else try to replace her in Ryan’s heart.

Join Ryan and Julia in the heart-wrenching conclusion to the unforgettable story of an incredible love; worth every single sacrifice…

For there is nothing more sacred than… A Love Like This…

My Interview With Kahlen :)

Tell us a little about you : )
Well, I’m single, I have one daughter and thee dogs. (All three, spoiled rotten).  I grew up in the Midwest and attended an Ivy League university.  Writing sort of snuck up on me when I was marketing/networking for a business venture and I absolutely hate talking about myself (if you can’t already tell by this answer). 

Which actors do you see playing the main characters of this trilogy?
Wow, that’s hard to say.  Readers have created a fan page for Ryan on Facebook and generally they put Brad Cooper, Jensen Ackles or Channing Tatum in his role.   It’s really hard to say whom I’d picture in my own mind.  It would depend on who was the right age and who could be believable portraying so many extremes in emotion.

So, is this the last we are ever going to read of Ryan and Julia? (Just wondering)   
Um, I’m sure I’ll do outtakes in the future.  It’s been requested that I write their first 4 years, Ellie & Harris’ , or Aaron & Jenna’s stories, too.  It just depends on if I feel I can put together a plot that I feel is good enough to tell a good story.  Never say never, but it’s not planned right now.

Are you working on anything now? If yes, what? :)
I’m always working!  I have another book/series that is about ready to publish, but I’m struggling with whether to make it into a series or just one really huge book.  It’s called After Dark and the main characters are Alexander (Alex) Avery and Angeline (Angel) Hemming.  Then another that I know will be a series will follow After Dark.  Plus, I’m putting together an anthology of short stories with 12 other authors to benefit The Amanda Todd Legacy Foundation (100% of proceeds to support them) that we hope will publish in October.

When did you first realize that you wanted to become a writer?   
When my readers told me that I was one. :)

Is there a place you especially like to write? 
I have a desk and hidey-hole complete with music and my dogs at my feet.  I write mostly there, but I do sometimes haul my laptop up to my room and write in bed all night.

For aspiring writers, do you have any advice for them?
Tell your story and don’t let other’s convince you to make changes to it that you know in your heart aren’t right.  Also, have complete faith in yourself and your readers… Take the leap, but only when you truly feel your story is ready to be published.

Have you read any books lately? Which ones? 
Yes, I’m reading Jessica Sorenson, Christina Lauren, Raine Miller, Madeline Sheehan and Kristen Ashley at the moment.  (I have a TBR list a mile long).

Do you have a favorite film(s)? What is it?
Wow. I am a big movie buff and like so many different genres.  I remember loving Lady Hawk when I was a kid, Dead Again (awesome) and Jagged Edge (will scare the crap out of you).  Lately, I loved Man of Steel, Iron Man (series), The Lucky One and in the past few years, Pride & Prejudice, and Twilight Saga (of course).

Film you are looking forward to see in theaters?   
I just saw The Heat and Man of Steel last week.  Loved them.  I have to see Monster’s University because Monster’s Inc was Olivia’s very first movie in a theater when she was 2.

Thank you so much for taking the time to interview me.

Freshman Forty By: Christine Duval *Review & E-Book Giveaway*

Read This First :)

Freshman Forty was originally self-published, but Christine just signed a deal to have it re-released by a publishing house this fall! Follow Christine on Twitter for updates @Christineduval1 or on her Goodreads author page.

This is mostly because not long after the tour the book will be removed from all online bookstores so it would explain why people won't be able to find it to purchase. It should still be available for purchase until mid-July, however.

Book & Author details:

Freshman Forty by Christine Duval
Publication date: February 21st 2013
Genre: New Adult Contemporary

When eighteen-year-old Laurel Harris discovers she’s pregnant four weeks into the start of her freshman year at prestigious Colman College, she has all intentions of telling her father. But being away at school makes it too easy to hide. And while she can’t explain to her friends, or to herself even, the reasons why she doesn’t want the baby’s father to find out about the pregnancy, the rest of her world begins to unravel. 

Freshman year is hard enough. Most girls get through by forming close friendships, finding new boys and a phone call from mom or dad on Sunday. Laurel has to navigate all of it while hiding an unplanned pregnancy from a summer fling... 

An imperfect heroine plagued by bad choices and haunted by the memory of her deceased mother and grandparents, readers are sure to identify with Laurel as she navigates teen pregnancy, in secret, in a remote college setting.

-Freshman Forty took won an Honorable Mention at the New York Book Festival
-Won an Honorable Mention under General Fiction for the Beach Book Festival.



Christine Duval has been writing creatively since the fourth grade when she penned her first short story entitled "London Terror," about the murder of a cat in London. She grew up on the North Shore of Long Island and lived in Italy twice as a teenager: once when she was sixteen in Bologna and in a small town on the Adriatic Sea called Porto San Giorgio; then in Florence when she was nineteen. Her parents wondered if she'd ever come back.

College was spent in the Finger Lakes: the inspiration for Colman, Milton, and Kashong Lake in Freshman Forty. It really is cold, wet and grey there - OFTEN! But when the sun comes out, boy is it pretty.

Life eventually took her to New York's Upper West Side, the place she'll always consider home. Though for now she resides in New Jersey with her family and a very spoiled love bird who can't decide if he's a boy or she's a girl.


My Review Will Be Posted At A Later Date.
