Ashley’s 5-🛍🛍🛍🛍🛍 Review

Book: The Ghost in the Mirror 

Author: Faith Gibson 

Release Date: September 29, 2016

Genre: M/M, Paranormal, Horror 

Series: Samuel Dexter #1

Stars: 5

     This combines the 2 genres that I love most, paranormal and M/M. Ms. Gibson does this phenomenally!! I’m so excited to see how this series progresses. 

 

       Samuel (Dex) Dexter A.K.A Ghost is a Marine that is involved in a horrible accident leaving him with no memories. Thankfully his Grams is there to fill in some of the blanks of his past for him, but she doesn’t want to influence him so she doesn’t give him his whole past. He’s having “flashbacks” but he doesn’t know if it’s really suppressed memories something he wishes. Once he’s back in Alabama on his Grams farm he starts questioning whether he likes men or women, what his favorite foods are and what type of music he likes to listen to. 

      Then something unexpected happens, he starts seeing things that no one else is able to. A little girl of a bout 7 appears to him, and needless to say he’s freaked out by it. The little girl can understand him but he can’t hear what she is saying. He’s not ready to believe in ghosts just yet and he chalks it up to hallucinations. At night he has some vivid dreams involving two men, one is an ex from his past and one was a fellow Marine. 

      In comes Orlando, the ex-boyfriend that is still in love with Dex. But Dex thinks Orlando has moved on and has a wife and child. That couldn’t be further from the truth. The child turns out to be Orlando’s nephew Zayden, and he can see the ghost of the little girl also. 

       Dex sets out to solve The mystery of why the little girl died and has not crossed over yet. Which leads him to meeting up with Selina and her partner Jillian. Selina is a psychiatrist and Jillian is a PI. Will he solve the little girl’s mystery? 

         Love, love Faith!!!! I highly recommend this book. Another smashing success by a very talented author.

Ashley’s Review of GRIT-Sector 1 The Uprising by Rebecca Sherwin

grit

 Ashley’s-🛍🛍🛍🛍🛍 Review 

Book: The Uprising (GRIT Sector 1)

Author: Rebecca Sherwin

Release date: September 23, 2016

Genre: Romantic Suspense/ Dark Romance 

Series: GRIT Sector 1 book 2

Stars: 4.5

      Fantastic continuation!!! I was hesitant to read this book because I was confused for most of book one, but I couldn’t put this book down. I was absolutely hooked from the prologue. 

     

     Trixie lets her inner twisted, dark, homicidal maniac out in this book. She is also very sexual in this book and loves the more Elias hurts her physically. She just doesn’t know which Elias she’s going to get and though she “loves” all of them, she especially likes the sadistic one. 

        

       Elias is more controlling and demanding in this book. Elias thinks he wants Trixie to be the little obedient wife, but he gets off when she is defiant. He likes punishing Trixie as much as she does taking the punishment. 

        But there is an entity at work here that threatens everything that GRIT stands for, another vigilante group. They threaten the very core of principles that makes up GRIT. Will Elias and Trixie be able to stand king and queen of GRIT or will they succumb to the vigilante group?

  

        So many twists and turns I didn’t know which way was up. That being said I wanted to throw my kindle at the ending!!!! I just can’t believe Ms. Sherwin would end it like that, I NEED to know the rest.

Title: Louis’s Story
Series: Dial A Stud 
Author: J.A. Melville
Illustrator: Bianca Eberle
 
 
✦Synopsis✦
 

What do you do when nobody wants you…..?

Harry was tired of being used, abused and taken for granted by men. Surely he deserved better than to be cast out like last night’s leftovers?

All his life he’d been treated like that. When he’d come out to his parents about being gay, they’d reacted by throwing him out, not wanting to acknowledge a homosexual son. They even went so far as to pay him a monthly allowance to keep him out of their lives.

What was wrong with him? Why didn’t anyone want him?

One night at the club after being dumped by his boyfriend, he thought he might find the answer in the bottom of his wine glass, or at the very least, drown his sorrows in it.

They say when one door closes another opens or something like that…….

Enter Louis; tall, handsome, confident and sexy. Louis makes Harry feel like he’s never felt before.

 
He also makes him want to break all his own rules, deciding a one night stand with this stunning man is a good way to get over a broken heart or distract him from it at least.The attraction between them is instant, their passion intense and Harry realises every sexual encounter he’s ever had is insignificant in comparison to how Louis makes him feel.

Louis is older, wiser, so much more experienced than Harry. He also has a wild past, a past Harry can only imagine.

The emotions he feels around Louis both give him strength and bring out his insecurities. He can’t think around him, so powerful is the hold this man has over him.

Maybe he should listen to the advice of his best friend Nora and stop overthinking things. Advice that sounds great in theory, but….

That might have worked until Harry discovers Louis is keeping secrets from him; secrets that will drive them apart if Louis can’t open up to him.

When the truth finally comes out, Harry is left reeling. He’s also left with an important decision. Cut Louis from his life and have his heart broken or stay with him and help him face all that troubles him, knowing that in the end, everything that matters to him may be lost.

Author Bio
For as long as I can remember, I’ve
loved to write, poetry, short stories just about anything. My English teachers
in school kept telling me I should write and it took me a lot of years to finally
get around to it. 

I spent too long worrying about failing as a writer before
I realized that living with the regret of never trying was
worse.

I live in a sleepy country town in Tasmania, Australia with my partner and our
three children, who aren’t so little anymore, plus a whole assortment of
animals. 

Natasha’s Awakening is my first book but I have no intention of stopping now
and will continue to live my dream of being a published author. I have just
published Taming Eric which is his POV to Natasha’s Awakening. 

My interests are writing of course, reading, watching movies and hanging out at
home with my family, our six cats and one dog. 
You can find me on Facebook under my author page J. A Melville and my book’s

Time Eternal

Time Series – Book One
Aug 2015
Blurb

Time Eternal is the story of Skyla Gray, a TSCAA agent in the present day, and Rei Dusan, the crown prince of the sixteenth-century Serbian Empire, who has traded his soul to the gods so he can travel through time to find his one true love, Elizabeth Magini.

The story opens with Agent Gray time-ported to an underground bank vault. Her mission is to retrieve a device, but someone else has gotten there first. More maddening is that she recognizes this man’s voice even though she cannot remember ever having met him before. Sent back to the present day by this stranger, she finds the life she knew slowly beginning to unravel… and learns that the stranger is not the only one who has been looking for her these past five centuries.

At the Last Battle, Rei Dusan lay dying alongside his father, his brothers, and his countrymen, when a handmaiden from the gods offered him a bargain: his soul and his eternal pledge to do the gods’ bidding in exchange for immortality. With his life, he will avenge his family, his country, and his beloved Elizabeth, who sacrificed her life to save his. He accepted the bargain with the gods only to later discover Elizabeth did not perish in the fire.

Will Skyla remember who she really is? What Rei meant to her – to Elizabeth? Will she accept Rei in her present life, where she is no longer a helpless young girl needing rescue from an evil Medici lord, but an ass-kicking agent fighting terrorists for a living? And how will Rei answer to the gods when they find out he has defied their orders? Will there be a happily ever after for Rei and Skyla?

Time Eternal is the first book of the Time series, which tells the story of the men and women who are part of a secret government agency, fighting not garden-variety terrorists but the gods and their enemies, who are facing off in a final showdown. Should their wars not be contained, the world will go up in flames – literally.

Time Untamed

Time Series – Book Two

Sept 2015

Blurb

Benjamin “Butch” Stone, a member of TSCAA Team Mu, is a former US Marine who has no family, no love except for his country, and his missions until he meets Savannah Green by chance at a bar in Germany. His attraction to her is instantaneous and combustible. They spend a gorgeous night together. When Savannah gets pregnant shortly after, he doesn’t hesitate to marry her. He thought this was his fairytale ending—a beautiful wife and rambunctious son—until a house fire, rips them away from him. The tragic news reaches him while he is in some godforsaken place, saving his country when he can’t even save his wife and young child. His heart and soul died that day.

Savannah Sabbah, also known as Savannah Green, is a part of an ancient order of assassins historians believe ceased existence in the thirteenth century. Her first assignment is to seduce a US serviceman for military secrets, but she falls hopelessly in love with her mark instead. When her father recalls her back to the family, she is ordered to destroy all evidence of her existence in her husband’s life. She defies her family’s orders and hides her son away. Yet this secret could be the end of her, her husband, and possibly the world.

Once again, TSCAA must go back in time to stop an alteration of history, to prevent a “contract to kill” on Jack Evans when he is still a boy. Jack will grow up to be the lead passenger, staging the counter attack inside UA Flight 93 on September 11, 2001. Should Butch and his team fail in protecting Jack, the present they know will be drastically different. World War III is almost guaranteed. But how can he trust the woman he loved with all his heart and soul when she deliberately deceived him, not only about who she really is but also about their son?

Will Butch and Savannah be able to overcome their distrust of each other? Will they be able to fight against their still-sizzling connection in order to remain cool-headed against her ruthless father and powerful family?

Synopsis
When I moved to New York, I never
dreamed that I would end up as a Top Twelve finalist for America’s Favorite
Dancer. I knew the competition would be a great opportunity for my career, but
I had no idea it would turn out to be the best summer of my life. My golden
ticket onto the show led to new friendships and hot steamy romances. 
However, behind the cool, confidence that I showed the world was a broken heart
that had never completely healed. Dance was my ongoing therapy, and I vowed to
never let a man get close enough to hurt me ever again. 

Instead, I kept my relationships the same way I liked to dance….fast and
unbinding. Was I a heartbreaker? Maybe. But mostly just protecting my own
heart. 

Now, if I could only forget the love of my life, I would be okay, but until
then I would continue to Just Dance. 

Just Dance is a companion novella in the Dancer’s Desire series, which can be
read alone, but is better as Book 2.5 in the series. It is a short story with a
little bit of romance and a whole lot of fun.

Blog Tour: Revolution by Adrienne Dunning

A woman on the run. A man devastated by a past marked with tragedy. Neither would ever have imagined their lives would change because of a war fought over two centuries ago.

Nate Emerson has spent the last few years wrapped in grief. It’s a weary burden, but one he has inevitably come to accept. Unexpectedly, Nate finds the walls he built around himself tested when confronted with a stranger at his family’s colonial homestead. Could she be the one to show him how to finally let go of the past?

Meg Grey finds herself at loose ends in the historical town of Yorktown, Virginia. Fleeing from a life she’d sooner forget, she simply wants to remain invisible. Spending a few weeks in an old farmhouse on the boundary of a Revolutionary War battlefield seems like the best way to accomplish that, yet Meg soon discovers that she isn’t alone in the old, neglected home. Sights and sounds that can’t be explained. Shadows and apparitions.

Will the spirits of revolution draw two people together, or will forces beyond their control keep them each imprisoned with their own personal demons.

Seeking Solace

 

Adrienne Dunning is simply a Southern gal who has fun playing poorly
at golf when she’s not crafting novels.
She loves all forms of expression—writing, dancing, cooking, talking—and
does them frequently and with abandon.  She loves creating endearing and
feisty characters full of humor and just a little awkwardness to keep
them “real”.  Although a possible mystery series is under
current exploration, her current works are primarily aligned with the contemporary
romance/chick lit genres.  She is heavily active in her local NaNoWriMo
chapter, and Seeking Solace, her debut novel releasing April 2015, is the resulting product of a NaNo
project.  She lives in coastal North
Carolina and uses that region as the setting for many of her stories.
