These ‘about me’ sections, or even sections that inform you about blogs, have never been my forte. Much to my chagrin, I was never taught the unwritten rules of what you are supposed to say. The links at the side of the blog – Twitter and Goodreads, for example – are liable to tell you more than I could ever say in words.

Mostly, this will be a book blog. I read a lot, and I love to share my views on my most recent reads. I try to read a little bit of everything, but if you look closely you’ll notice I will occasionally become obsessed with one specific genre for a short period of time. Old books, new books, yet to be released books – I read them all. If you’re an author looking for advance readers or just wish for more reviews of a book you’ve already released, please feel free to contact me. There is a contact form at the side of my blog – if you scroll down below the Twitter and Goodreads sidebar you will find it – so drop me a message and I’ll be sure to get back to you in double time. After all, finding new authors is what makes the book world go around.

Thanks for taking your time to read this. With a little bit of luck, you will find my blog much more interesting than this mundane introductory section.

Release Blitz: Crazy Hot Love.




Title: Crazy Hot Love
A Dirty Dicks Standalone Novel
Author: K.L. Grayson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 22, 2018



Blurb

Claire Daniels is good at a lot of things, but dating isn't one of them. Although she enjoys men of all different shapes, colors, and sizes, she has one requirement: they must have a job on her approved-occupation list. It has to be safe, so they can come home every night, which means no cops, pilots, doctors, ranchers, and absolutely no firefighters. 

She’s kept to her rules thus far—as long as you ignore the tiny crush she has on Trevor Allen, a crush that cannot move toward anything physical because Trevor is a firefighter and a rancher. Not to mention, he’s four years younger than she is and the brother of her two best friends.

Still, it sure would be nice to have him put out her fire.

Trevor Allen also has a few rules when it comes to Claire Daniels: no staring, flirting, smokin’ hot fantasies, or touching of any kind. He's been lusting after Claire his whole life, but with a steady stream of willing women and two demanding jobs to hold his attention, he's somehow managed to keep his hands off her.

Until they end up in a bathroom together—a small bathroom with very little room to move, leaving him pressed against Claire’s lush curves. What's he supposed to do when she looks up at him with those big, green doe eyes and licks her lips? The only thing he can do: kiss the hell out of her, then convince her it can’t happen again.

Too bad he can't convince himself.

Author Bio

Theresa Sederholt was born and raised in Brooklyn New York. She is a graduate of Campbell University in North Carolina, with a degree in Criminal Justice. Theresa now calls Florida home, with her husband, a professional chef, and her two dogs.

Experiencing life first hand is what she does best. Believing she can do anything has put her in many crazy situations. Whether it’s babysitting a pig farm or cutting the top off of a mini truck; nothing is ever out of reach. Her list is endless, A to Z.

As a flight attendant (there’s that list again), she would make up stories about all of her passengers as they came and went. It seemed only natural to put pen to paper and see where these characters led her. What started out as a single woman, having a cup of coffee—trying to make it through life—grew into a complex story of romance, mystery, and murder. The Unraveled Trilogy was born.

Theresa’s beliefs are pretty simple. There isn’t a luggage rack on the hearse, and give a girl Nutella and espresso and she can change the world.

Theresa enjoys connecting with her fans. She can always be reached through her email at: ttnewyork007@gmail.com

M. Malone


NYT & USA Today bestselling author M. Malone lives in the Washington, DC metro area with her husband and their two sons. She holds a master's degree in Business from a prestigious college that would no doubt be scandalized by how she's using her expensive education.

Independently published, she has sold more than 1/2 million ebooks in her two series, THE ALEXANDERS and BLUE-COLLAR BILLIONAIRES. Since starting her indie journey in 2011 with the runaway bestselling novella "Teasing Trent," her work has appeared on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists more than a dozen times.

She's now a full-time writer and spends 99.8% of her time in her pajamas.




Nana Malone


USA Today bestselling author Nana Malone's love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense novel she "borrowed" from her cousin.

It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She's been in love with kick-butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination constantly channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.

While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as brazen and kick-butt as she thinks she is.

Review: Renegades

Renegades Renegades by Marissa Meyer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Marissa Meyer is an author who consistently grabs my attention. Prior to reading Renegades, I had only read the first two books in the Lunar Chronicles, but it’s certainly something I keep meaning to amend. After all, the rest of the Lunar Chronicles are books I need to read, as I’m in desperate need of answers. Heartless is also a book to have piqued my interest. I cannot decide if Marissa Meyer is playing really smart by writing what is popular at the moment in young adult fiction – cashing in on the fairy-tale retellings, Alice in Wonderland, viewing things from the bad guys view, and superheroes – or whether her mind simply works in a way that her stories always seem to be within the trend, but I cannot fault her for providing stories that always seem to grab my attention.

With Renegades, I had planned to hold off reading it until book two was released. I wanted to read the duology back-to-back, allowing me to immerse myself in the world across a couple of days. Instead, my lack of self-control came into play, and I devoured this one as soon as the chance came about. Now I’m hearing it is not to be a duology, but instead it is to be a trilogy, and I’m even more annoyed with myself. If it is to be a trilogy, then that is fine by me – it just highlights the fact that I should have waited before diving in, as now I’ll have multiple waits to get my answers.

Despite the knowledge that I should have waited before reading this one, I did enjoy Renegades. I wasn’t entirely sure about it at first, in some ways I was fearful I was not going to fall in love with this one, but the more I read the deeper into the story I was pulled. This may not be the strongest four-star rating I have ever given, but it’s certainly a story that pulled me in deep and left me wanting more. It wasn’t just the shocker of an ending, a cliff-hanger of information that leaves you in dire need of answers, it was also the way I feel in love with the characters and the way the story unfolded – by the end, I was so invested, I was desperate to find out more.

I think the only weakness for me was the world building. I feel as though certain things were lacking, certain elements were not explained as well as they could have been. I’m hoping these things will be explained more in the next book, that the world will develop into something more solid, but even without the depth of world building I enjoy, this book kept me engaged throughout. What we did come to know about the world was great, there were so many things opened up, I just wish things had been taken to the next step so the images in my mind were more solid, so my knowledge of the world was something more grounded.

As I mentioned, though, even without the level of world building I like, this book had me gripped throughout. The storyline is a lot of fun – it gives us the black and white, along with the grey. You are pulled into both sides of the fight, you come to enjoy the characters. Plenty of different elements are introduced, and there are so many things I cannot wait to find out more about. There are characters I want to see much more of. There are plot lines I want to see develop. There are scenes I wish to see.

If the word on the street about this becoming a trilogy is true, then I can kind of see why it has happened. There was a lot left open at the end of this one, so many things need to be answered. It could happen in just one more book, but it would be a really big book if it was to do everything justice. I may not be completely happy about the wait I have for all my answers, but my fingers are crossed the extra book means the details will all be played out well.

Overall, Renegades was a ridiculously addictive read, one that has me desperate for the next book in the series. I was already planning to go and fill in my Marissa Meyer blanks, yet this book has made it even clearer that I need to do so – and hopefully such will tide me over until I can get my hands on book two of this series.

Release Boost: Simmer.




Title: Simmer
Author: Stephanie Rose
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 16, 2018



Blurb

Simmer (verb): to stew gently below or just at the boiling point; to be in a state of incipient development


My life was always at a simmer… only stewing, never going anywhere. I was left to fend for myself when it came to affection or love, so I learned to go without. 

I refused to let them see how broken and lonely I was; it was much easier to hide behind a false reality. I didn't want anyone's pity. I didn't need it. Pity wouldn't put food on the table or keep a roof over our heads. That was all me.

Now, I have a second chance at a dream long forgotten. It demands hard work and sacrifice—with absolutely no distractions. A recipe I already know all too well, raising a daughter on my own. 

Drew Kostas is everything I’ve ever wanted but couldn't let myself have. He’s younger, gorgeous, charming—and relentless. He sees beyond the hardened shell I’ve built to protect myself, coaxing out a softer me I don't recognize. 

It doesn't matter how I melt in his presence when the heat between us threatens to boil over. 

That's the thing about heat. When it rises, everyone gets burned. 

Especially when they're foolish enough to fall in love.

Title: A.C.H.E.
Author: M. Never 
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Ménage
Release Date: May 21, 2018



Blurb

A.C.H.E.

A is for Ache 
C is for Choice. 
H is for His. 
E is for Everly. 

I've always gotten the short end of the stick when it comes to my personal life. Drug-addicted mother, obsessive stepfather, shitty upbringing, and one soul-shattering, heart-wrenching relationship. 

But everything changed when I met Alec Prescott. I couldn’t stand the cocky, hotshot lawyer at first, but after assisting him on one case, my opinion changed drastically. He became the beginning I so desperately needed, even if romantic relationships at work are completely forbidden. 

Unfortunately, falling in love with a coworker is the least of my problems. Funny thing about the past, it’s never truly far away. No matter how fast you run from it, or how hard you try to suppress it, it’s there, lingering like a fog, blinding your vision, impacting your decisions, affecting your life. 

That’s where Tage Andrews comes in. He’s the heartache I can never outrun. The man who saved me from my past while pillaging my emotions. I want to avoid reliving it—avoid him—but he’s always there, lingering like a fog, blinding my vision, impacting my decisions, affecting my life. 


This is my paradoxical predicament. 
Two men. 
One choice. 
Inevitable heartbreak.

Release Blitz: Pr*ck Charming.




Title: Pr*ck Charming
Series: Royally Screwed #4
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 21, 2018



Blurb

He’s the most notorious bad boy in royalty.
The kind of man your mother warns you about.
He’s not the man you get drunk with, or get tattoos with.
He’s not the man you wake up naked in a hotel bed next to.
Oh, and he’s definitely not the one you accidentally marry.
Oops...


Rough, wild, uncivilized and filthy. The tabloids like to write all sorts of shit about me, but some of it’s pretty spot on. Like the tattoo I’ve got you-know-where?

Yeah, that one’s true.

I wasn’t looking for trouble that night, but I sure found it in her – Princess Faith LaFleur. If I’m the notorious bad boy, she’s just as infamous for being good, sweet, innocent, and untouched.

I saved her from a tight spot, but it all gets fuzzy from there. Fuzzy, close, kissing, tattooed, a couple of “I-do’s”, and a whole bunch of naked from there. And the next thing I know, I’m waking up next to the last girl on earth I should have anything to do with.

Because that sweetness comes with a whole big helping of sass, and there’s more fire in her than I ever saw coming. Oh, and throw in the fact that her father’s behind a plot to take my crown and steal my kingdom, and we’ve got ourselves what you might call a situation.

The world will tell me that this is wrong, and that I should walk away.

…Not a chance.

First, I made her my wife. But now, I’m going to make her mine.
