Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000446_00073]

Book Description:

I was just a reporter, trying to stay ahead of my student loans. I knew the rules, and I followed them. I thought I knew how the world worked—humans lived their petty little lives in the safety of the sun. We loved and fought and—when the sun sank—we scurried behind our walls and lived in fear. That is when the monsters came out to play. And even in the safety of the sun, we knew who ruled us. The Houses. And their Scions. Everyone knows the great Houses and their Scions—they are feared and loved and hated and envied. They are the gods who walk the shadows and rule all of our lives. They are salvation and death. And somehow, I am one of them.

Drawn Through You by Sarina Rhoads - Review and Giveaway



Author: Sarina Rhoads
Publication Date:  26 October 2015
Publisher: Tryst Books
Series: Stand Alone 
Genre:  Contemporary Romance
Age Recommendation: 18 and up
Rating: 3 Stars
~ I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ~ 

Book Description:

What if the brooding billionaire wore pencil skirts and Louboutins? What if the impressionable intern was a small-town furniture maker with boyish charm?

Cole Jacobson always thought he would take after his father and pursue his dreams. But when the family business falters and he’s forced to accept his uncle’s help, Cole is summoned to the big city for a job he never wanted.

Priorities become obscured when Cole finds himself working for Shaun Wright, the strong, intimidating, and ruthlessly attractive business partner at his uncle’s contracting firm. Forced to either sacrifice his hard-won integrity or leave behind the one thing that brings him true happiness, Cole must make a decision that could cost him both. A decision only complicated by the sexy, inscrutable woman he can’t stop thinking about. A woman who just might be as intrigued as he is to cross professional boundaries.

A provocative, trope-twisting romance, Sarina Rhoads’s Drawn Through You finally puts the heroine on the other side of the desk.

MY Review:

This review comes down to an I liked it, but I didn't love it as much as I wanted to.  I think perhaps I went in expecting something from the book after reading the description and what I got wasn't exactly what I had thought it would be.  

I expected Shaun Wright to be the female version of a Bennett Ryan from Beautiful Bastard or an Ethan Blackstone from The Blackstone Affair.   No doubt Shaun is definitely an intelligent, powerful, determined, hard working woman...but she didn't pull of the cocky/ball busting/brooding attitude you think she is going to have after reading the book description.    Truth is I liked her just fine, she just simply wasn't what I thought I was going to get and I didn't love her, I couldn't connect with her.  She was almost too aloof.  

Cole, he's an interesting character for me because I think we got what we expected when it came to him.  He's a small town man, with big dreams that don't involve a big city or powerful people.  He just wants to be left to live his life by his own terms, he wants to be able to create his won happiness....who doesn't right?  He has some pretty alpha male tendencies that lead to riling up Shuan here and there, but other than that he doesn't often put those tendencies to good use.  I felt like he let things slide to much, he let people walk all over him...not just Shaun who you would expect would be leaving divots in his back (both in fun and anger) from her Louboutin heels.    

Drawn Through Me I am afraid just didn't live up to it's potential.  The concept is one that I think we would all like to see more of.  I liked the storyline, small town guy, big city girl, power struggles, intrigue, mergers, and takeovers....yeah, it' got all that...but some how it just falls flat.  I wanted more from the couple, they're story sadly gets lost in all the side story lines.  Was there chemistry between then two, sure but it felt more like a secretive office romance instead of building/budding relationship.  They had their moments and I totally appreciated those, but they were few and afar between.  

So this turned into a meh read for me, but I don't regret having spent the time to read it.  I think it might be a 5 star read for some people, it just missed it's mark with me, doesn't mean it isn't worth picking up though.  So if you enjoy contemporary romance I'd say give it a go.  Forget what the description says though...this is less about flipping the brooding bad boy billionaire trope and more about a man trying to find his way in the ruthlessness of big business and a 'new world' and getting back to what makes him happy.  


Maintaining a suburban orbit of NYC all her life, Sarina Rhoads ran the gamut of odd jobs in pursuit of a one true passion. Once exposed to a world of creative storytelling through online writing groups, she fell completely in love. Now she finds pleasure in penning both contemporary and paranormal romance, possessing notebooks chock full of ideas only waiting to be released.

Written in Ink by Carrie Ann Ryan - Review and Giveaway

Author: Carrie Ann Ryan
Publication Date:  13 October, 2015
Publisher: Self-Published
Series:  Montgomery Ink, book 4
Genre:  Contemporary Romance
Age Recommendation: 18 and up
Rating: 4 Stars
~ I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ~ 

Book Description:

A Brand New Full Length Novel in the Bestselling Montgomery Ink Series where the quiet, inked Montgomery finds his match in the woman with a fiery passion and a past full of secrets.

There's nothing worse for a writer than missing a deadline. For Griffin Montgomery, his failure to do what he loves comes at a blow. He didn't understand how it was affecting his life until his well-meaning family intercedes. His sisters have hired him a new personal assistant and he's outraged--that is, until he sees who it is.

Autumn Minor is light on her feet and a bare memory for most people she meets. She does her best to blend in everywhere she lives, even if it's only for a short period of time. Making sure no one truly notices her is the only way she's survived this long. Only when she meets Griffin and the rest of the Montgomerys, she's afraid she won't be able to let go when its time to run.

Though the two begin a tentative but explosive relationship, they know it can't last forever. Neither of them are made for the long haul when it comes to love and romance. When the demons from Autumn's past find her and put both their lives at risk, Griffin will stop at nothing to protect her. In the end, though, he'll be the one who needs a second chance.

My Review:

I have to admit (and I hate to admit it) that this was my first book in the Montgomery Ink series and I am so glad that it came across my desk.  I fell in love with Autumn and especially Griffin right from the start and I have no doubt that I could easily love the other three couples that came before equally.

Griffin's life is falling down around him.  His mind is drawing a blank, he has sequestered himself away and is struggling not only to get his books written but to simply live.  He is a wreck and no matter how much he thinks he is hiding from his family and like any good close knit family they are bound and determined to right his world.

Enter Autumn...a mysterious beauty that showed up one day and has against her better judgement fallen in love with the entire Montgomery Clan.  She's got secrets, no one really knows who she is or where she came from, and she's on the verge of running again, fearful that this family that she's become an unlikely member of could be in danger but before she goes she's agreed to help put Griffin's world back to right and it could be both her biggest and best mistake yet.

Griffin was so interesting to me, it was funny because I felt like I could see so much of myself in him.  He strives, as do all the Montgomery family, to be the best at what ever he does, but now his best is leaving him and he doesn't know how to get it back.  What I find the most compelling about Griffin is that it is obvious to me he is in a depression.  He can't focus, he's drawn even more into himself than normal (I mean he's an artist, he is going to be a bit drawn into his own mind all the time as it is...but now it is worse than ever), he has lost his love for writing, he has lost his desire to take care of his home, ultimately his life.  I wanted to curl my arms around him, hold him, and just tell him I get it Griff, I get it.  He's also unintentionally hilarious...his 'man-tantrums' were some of the funniest moments in the book and made me giggle uncontrollable a time or two, as well as making me want to throw one of his own books at him.  My favorite thing about Griffin though is his love of his family.  He is no doubt an Alpha male, but he is also a beautifully sensitive soul that worries so much about others that he has no time to even think twice about himself.  

Autumn is this sweet, confusing, scared, beautiful ray of sunshine that holds a world of pain and fear in her heart.  She falls involve with the Montgomery family and they take her straight into their fold.  They all know there is more to her than she is willing to share and they accept that, they don't push her to tell her secrets but it is clear that they will stand behind her as they do with each other if she ever needs it.  I did struggle a time or two with Autumn, but I think that was mainly because I wanted to know why she was the way she was..what caused her pain, what causes her to continually run, what makes her fear for not only herself but more importantly for friends.  We don't get those answers until well into the book but once everything falls into place it is hard not to totally love and understand her.  I'd like to see her story come full circle one day and for her to get the chance to find what she lost so many years ago.  My favorite thing once again goes back to the Montgomery family...the fact that they take this lonely woman, a woman who hasn't been able to be with family or make a true friend in years and that make her theirs, even before Griffin, but especially after.

The chemistry between these two characters is fantastic....from the moment they meet you know it is going to be totally swoon worthy.  I loved that they clearly feel the attraction but at the same time aren't exactly friendly with one another.  I love that even though Autumn knows becoming Griffin's assistant is a bad idea (because of her fears and her feelings) she still does it out of a sense of loyalty to the family, a need to help, and because she can't let go of the spark she felt the first time they met.

My only complaint and what keeps this from a 5 star read to me, is that the build up to the reveal of Autumn's challenge is long and then the outcome is fast...I loved all the time we got with Griffin and Autumn and I wouldn't want to have her personal story to have taken away from that, but at the same time it felt rushed at the end...and it might have been nice to have the Montgomery clan have to work a bit harder to save her.

I can't wait to go back and read the first three books and you can be certain that I will be waiting anxiously for the next installment (YEA for large book families!) I am very curious about a particular female family member and her best friend, and her best friends biker friend...I know right?

This is a great read for any Contemporary Romance fan, especially those that love tight families who can't stay in their lanes and love one another so much that they will fight heaven and hell to make sure they each find their happiness!  


New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.

Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.

But when the family business falters and he’s forced to accept his uncle’s help, Cole is summoned to the big city for a job he never wanted.

A provocative, trope-twisting romance, Sarina Rhoads’s Drawn Through You finally puts the heroine on the other side of the desk.

Exclusive Excerpt: 

They stepped onto the elevator, just the two of them, but she pressed twelve instead of six. Were they back at square one, where she retreated to her office in the sky instead of dealing with her feelings head on? Too bad for her, Cole thought to himself. There was too much at stake for him. More than she could even fathom. He needed to make a decision about his uncle’s ultimatum, and the clock was running out. The fate of his father’s business still hung in the balance, dependent upon his next move. Shaun’d basically said she was done with Olivia, and the way she had stared at him when she didn’t think he’d notice had set his body ablaze. Frustrated, rejected, and somewhat inebriated, Cole slammed his fist against the emergency stop button and the car jerked to a halt. “What the–?” Shaun exclaimed as the scream of the buzzer bounced around the four walls. Cole stepped toward her while she inched back. “Are you drunk?” He attempted to shake off the beer fog slowly swallowing his brain whole. “Maybe.” He would let Shaun make up his mind. If she turned him down right here, right now, then he’d be free and clear. He’d report back to Robert that she wasn’t interested and that he’d need to employ another stud-for-hire. But what if she didn’t? Cole thought as he ceased his forward progression. Not an inch of space remained between them. He searched her eyes, ears honed in on her rapid breathing, which he could hear even over the thundering of his own pulse and the buzzing of the elevator. “In the stairwell, you saw me, didn’t you? You saw me before I dropped my file, and you liked it.” He didn’t know where the sudden surge of courage had come from. The beer? The shitty position his uncle had cornered him into? Shaun continued to stare in silence. “So is it just women for you now, Shaun? Is that why you can’t address the idea of going out with me?” “I… We…” She flattened her palms against his chest, but didn’t push him away. A sign to keep going? He half wondered if she could feel the thump of his heart against his ribcage or the spike in his body temperature. She was so beautiful this close. He’d failed to notice the light dusting of freckles across the bridge of her nose or the tiny scar above her left eyebrow until now. The scent of her perfume acted as a hallucinogen when mixed with the glorious vision before him. He leaned down, mouth almost brushing over hers. “Shaun,” he breathed. With a second jerk, the elevator started moving again. Cole glanced down, finding Shaun’s finger on the emergency button. Her action was answer enough. He backed away to the opposite side of the car and poked at the button for six. When the car stopped, he glanced over his shoulder at her. She hadn’t moved. Didn’t that make him feel even more like an asshole. “Don’t worry, Ms. Wright. It’s just business between you and me from now on. I promise.” He stepped out, leaving Shaun to continue her ascent to the twelfth floor alone. He was tired of looking like a world-class idiot, hard up on his boss and her mind-scrambling skirts. He’d really thought something had passed between them at lunch, but no. Maybe the pressure from his uncle was starting to fuck with his brain. “Mr. Jacobson.” Cole stopped and turned around. Shaun stood just outside of the elevator, one arm stretched out to keep the doors from closing. Her expression gave nothing away, but he could see her swallow, as if she were preparing herself for something. She cleared her throat and proceeded in a voice that lacked the confidence he’d come to associate with her. “I’m not sure that will be enough.” Without another word, she stepped back into the elevator and disappeared.

The Final Straight by Charlotte Howard - Guest Post and Excerpt

Book Description:

April Miller works for her best-friend, Max Knight on his livery and competition yard. Their friendship has withstood many turbulent times, and while April is deeply in love with Max, she is also aware of his womanising ways and has refused to succumb to his flirtatious charms. When her ex, AJ, suddenly comes back with a business proposal, April finds herself torn between the two men.

A Few Words from Charlotte Howard

Thank you for hosting today! Recently I got asked what my idea of romance and eroticism is, so I thought I’d take the time today to answer that question.

I may have a problem – it has been noted by quite a few (male) friends, that I think like a man. This is not a good thing when you’re supposed to be a romance author. I can’t even blame growing up in a male environment because I grew up in a small village, living with my mum and two of my sisters, my dad worked on the oil rigs so was a way a lot. It was a very female-orientated life. Still, I think like a man. Apparently.

I am not a flowers and hearts girl. I’m allergic to lilies and daffodils, well any high pollinating flower, for a start. I’m seriously crap at remembering things like birthdays and anniversaries, and don’t even get me started on Valentine’s Day! I much prefer March 14th... (If you don’t get that reference, ask the nearest man.) A romantic night in, as far as I’m concerned, involves a takeaway curry, a cup of tea, and a good action or thriller movie. If it has Channing Tatum or Will Smith in it, that would be a bonus.

Eroticism... Well maybe I’m more female on this one... What do I find erotic? Fit, sexy, and tattooed. Think Steve McGarrett (Hawaii Five-O), Agent Booth (Bones) or Oliver Queen (Arrow). Muscles and ink, and I’m weak at the knees. It’s terrible when I go to the gym – to get fit, obviously – and am surrounded by these hot hunks. But eroticism isn’t just about the person is it? It’s about the situation, the surroundings.

I’m a sucker for a powerful man. Now I’m not saying I want to be thrown onto the bed and tied down, but there is nothing more erotic than a man who knows what he wants, and knows how to get it. No, I’m not talking about any varying shades of gray. I’m talking strong, determined, and sane. I do not want a broken piece of china that needs gluing back together. I want Kevlar. I want someone who can look after me. A knight in shining armour on his glorious steed.

Romance and eroticism don’t have to wear a business suit or high heels. They can easily come in a pair of scruffy jeans and work boots. And that is what I hope I put into The Final Straight. Max is as far from business-like as possible, but he is still a force to be reckoned with. April is not your make-up wearing, mini-skirt clad, broken girl. She wears boots and a riding hat, but she’s still a hot woman. AJ... Well he’s AJ, and you’ll just have to read the book to find out what he’s like.


“I should go,” April yawned, watching as he scraped food into the bin and placed plates into the dishwasher. 

“You’re staying the night,” he insisted. 

“We’ve been through this a hundred times,” she sighed. Her hands waved between them. “This can never happen.” 

He gave her a disappointed look. “We could have a little bit of fun.” He gave her a playful smile. “You never know what might develop.” 

“I should stop drinking around you. Every time…” She didn’t stop him when he grabbed her hips and rocked her from side to side. “You know exactly where it would go. You forget that unlike your bits on the side, I know you. You’ll wake up in the morning and regret it. You’ll try to placate me with empty promises, and then in a couple of months you’ll find someone taller, thinner, and sexier, and I will be left alone.” 

“I would never cheat on you,” he said, honesty brimming through the firmness of his voice. “You are the only girl for me.” 

“Please don’t,” she said, placing her hands on his chest. “We want different things…” 

“Okay.” He kissed the top of her head. “Spare room it is.” 

“Thank you.” She stepped back and looked at him. There was a sadness in his dark brown eyes, one that hurt her heart. “We are okay aren’t we?” 

“We’re great,” he said with a small smile. 

“I couldn’t bear to lose you as a friend. Let’s not get serious again.” 

“Okay.” He nodded. They smiled and kissed each other on the cheek; a signature on their unspoken agreement to remain just friends.

Book Description:


Five days ago, a massive UFO crashed in the Midwest, killing thousands of people. Since then, nothing–or no one–has come out.

A shell-shocked country is waiting, glued to televisions and computer screens, for a sign of what the future holds. But when the aliens emerge, they’re nothing like what Alice expected. And only one thing is clear: Nothing will ever be the same again.

Robison Wells is also the author of Blackout, Variant, and Feedback. Variant was a Publishers Weekly Best Book and a YALSA Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers. Robison lives in the Rocky Mountains in a house not too far from elk pastures. His wife, Erin, is a better person than he will ever be, and their three kids cause mischief and/or joy.

Robison suffers from five mental illnesses (panic disorder, OCD, agoraphobia, depression and dermatillomania) and is an outspoken advocate for those with mental illnesses.
