Madeleine Abducted Blog Tour

She was meant to be his destruction…
A pawn played in a perilous game between
father and son…
Yet, her strength was more than either
man could imagine.
As Maddy learns to save herself…
She becomes the one thing that could
set the son free.

Madeleine Clark was raised to become a concert cellist. Sheltered and naïve, she remains hidden behind her music, a protection from the world around her. On the night of her first solo performance, Maddy accepts the admiration of a stranger and finds herself captive in a cruel and twisted power struggle between a sadistic father and his son, Aaron.

Seemingly, dangerous and uncaring, Aaron manages the business operations of his father’s estate. Wanting nothing to do with the slaves kept at the Estate, Aaron refuses to take part in the deeper 
depravities of his father. Despite his resistance, Aaron’s father ‘gifts’ him with a petite, brunette woman he can’t refuse. 

A bond forged in conspiracy and deceit, Aaron struggles to save Maddy by teaching her to survive in the world in which he’d been raised. An unlikely union, Aaron soon learns that great strengths can exist within small packages, while Madeleine learns that love and light can exist in the darkest of places.

My Review

5 out of 5 stars.

I must say that I really read lighter novels, but when I seen the sign up for Madeleine Abducted and read the synopsis I was instantly interested. The only other dark novel I have read was the Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning. I must say I was hooked from page one. The anticipation of not knowing what would happen next with Maddy was the ultimate pull for me. The story itself is out of this world(I will warn you if your not into violence and abuse then this is not the book for you). My thoughts are you have to have an open mind in order to read and enjoy this story. I loved how Maddy has grown into her own person and surprised everyone with her defiance and strength. The chemistry between her and Aaron is undeniably strong from the moment she laid eyes on him before her abduction. There are moments in this book that I had to put it down because the violence was a little too much, but only to immediately pick my nook back up to read more(im a glutton for punishment lol). Aaron's father is a true nightmare in this book he is the epitome of evil and the ultimate manipulator, placing Aaron in situations and trying to get him to show his hand to show his true feelings for Maddy.   Once again this book will take you on  a journey it's up to you to figure out how the ride will be. I highly recommend this book for those who like to read darker novels without judgement. For all other you have been warned purchase at your own risk.


Finding her voice, Maddy spoke out of turn, not thinking about the repercussions her words could elicit.  “I would prefer you call me by my name.”  She peaked up at him through her lashes.  “Maddy, I would prefer that you call me Maddy.”

            Aaron stopped with his bare back turned to her, taking several minutes to finally respond, he asked, “What makes you think you are allowed to ask that?  If I wanted, I could call you slave…”  He turned to face her, the contours of chest perfectly shadowed, his strength unquestionable.  “…or whore.”  His swagger was slow as he approached her, a hunter skilled in pursuit.  “Would you prefer those names to ‘Mouse’?”

            Sucking her bottom lip between her teeth, Maddy fidgeted with her hands, refusing to look Aaron in the eyes.  She could feel his gaze touching her skin, his perusal of the woman barely half his size.  The heat of his body rolled off of him as he circled her.  It was the feeling of a soft blanket and lustful threat wrapped around her at the same time.  When the deep resonation of his voice occurred again, she cringed, fearing he would strike out at her for the incorrect answer.  “Why do you dislike the name I have given you?”

Ezekiel ‘Zeke’ Murphy has plans.  After spending four years in the Army he’s headed home.  He was ready to settle down, marry his girl and run his ranch in the panhandle of Texas.  Only plans change, people change, and what he thought once was is irrevocably changed.
McKenna ‘Mac’ Wyatt should be out making mistakes, living her life as every other 21 year old college student.  Instead she’s stuck in a small town where everyone knows her family’s dirty little secrets.  Instead of going to college like she once dreamed, she finds herself once again minimizing her mama’s path of destruction.

Twenty-four year old Dexter Michaels has arrived in the UK for a fresh start - leaving everything and everyone he knows behind in the states. Determined to put right some of the wrongs he’ll never be able to forgive himself for making and make his Aunt Sarah – the only person left who still believes in him - proud, he lands in London with the intention of working hard, getting his degree and keeping himself to himself. He can’t destroy anybody else that way…
His heart and his body have other ideas however when he finds himself sitting next to nineteen year old Emily Barton in his Psychology class. Moving down south to find her own New Life, Emily is shy, smart and beautiful – everything Dexter knows he should stay away from… everything he knows would be too easy for him to break. But she makes him feel things he’d forgotten even existed. She makes him laugh, smile, care… forget. Without her trying, and without him realizing, Emily has wound her way into the one place he swore to keep locked away forever – his heart. But can she stay there when she discovers the dark past he’s so determined to keep hidden from her? Or will he destroy her too, just like he always expected? (Not recommended for younger readers due to language, drug/alcohol abuse and sexual content)

My Review
41/2 stars out of 5

Emily and her best friend Rachel have moved away from home to live the life of college students, but Emily is  reserved and very shy when it comes to being in social settings. Best friend Rachel decided to come up with a life list to get Em to loosen up and live a little. Little did she know that  the first item on their list would lead her to Dexter. Dexter is an American trying to make a new life in London, getting away from his past. He has closed himself off from getting close to anyone, but all that changes when he meets Emily. This story line had me captivated when Emily and Dexter started hanging out. It has it moments when I laughed out loud. There were also parts where I wanted to yell at both of them to give into each others feelings. Em's best friend Rachel can come off as a bit pushy but I get where she's coming from. A very endearing story about opening up and learning how to lean on others for support through your toughest times. Take My Hand is a book that you can easily get lost in and loose track of time. I recommend this book for those that love a good story about love, redemption and learning how to accept and move on from your past. You will not be disappointed..

Jenn Foor's Repair Me Blog Tour

Morning Addict's

I hope everyone is enjoying their Tuesday Morning. Today the House of Books is happy to be hosting today's blog tour stop for Jenn Foor's(Did I mention she's from Maryland Also like yours truly) new release Repair Me. Trust me this book will have you fanning yourself "constantly", but more of that when we get to my review.

Sky's whole world is turned upside down when she catches her long-time boyfriend cheating. Depressed over the breakup, she decides to drive to the beach to spend time with her friends and drown her sorrows in hot guys and fruity drinks. The only problem with her plan is her piece-of-junk car. It breaks down halfway into her trip, in the middle of nowhere—a place where cell phone towers don't even exist.

Ford's life has changed drastically in the past year, and he spends his days working at his family's run-down auto repair shop. When his father tells him to go rescue a stranded traveler, he soon finds himself with a hot opportunity to forget about what ruined his life, even if it's only for one night.
With sexy chemistry between them, Sky and Ford agree to a one-night stand, to let go of what each of them are running from and enjoy each other with no strings attached. But as their heated night progresses, they both know that one night is never going to be enough. What happens when one night turns into two? And two turns into three? Can two people, who know nothing about each other, really fall in love?
Or is lust just playing with their torn hearts?
Adult 18+ Explicit Sexual Content *****

My Review

4 stars out of 5
Sky wanted to spend a couple of days at the beach trying to forget about her cheating ex. When issues with her car sidetracks her from her plans for fun in the sun. A sexy mechanic comes to her rescue. What was suppose to be a hot night that was ment to be a one night deal. That my friends is what Repair Me is all about (not really lol), what was ment to be a one night stand between Sky and Ford turned into something more between the two. Secretes and obsessive ex's are all that Ford and Sky face throughout the book. I particularly liked the fact that Ford always looked out for his family more than himself even though it was causing him to cut himself off from his dreams and the one woman that has tore down the brick wall around his heart.  Let me tell you Ladies and Gents(if there are any reading this lol) that this story line is hot hot hot!!!. The chemistry between Sky and Ford is the off the charts. I loved how neither of them really wanted to let each other go after the night was over. This book for me really had a good dose of sexy and drama. For me if your looking for a good book with a huge helping of sexy and drama then this is your read you won't be disappointed.

HJ Bellus's My Today Release Day Blitz

Release Day Blitz!!!

My Today 
My Way Series, 
Book Two
by: HJ Bellus

Lacey’s Story…

Covering up pain is easy. It’s keeping it tucked away that’s hard. I’ve always needed the cover of tattoos to hide the nasty past that leached its way into me, tainting me beneath my skin. Not the shiny, trendy tats, but the ugly broken kind, meant to keep the world at bay. If they weren’t enough, then my piercings, foul mouth and crazy hair usually did the trick. Life had taught me to never follow the rules, because when you do, you get burned.
That philosophy served its purpose, until I met someone who turned my life upside down. Milly, the little hoochie, stormed into my life and changed everything with her undying faith in me, her love and her shitty coffee concoctions. I found a family in Milly, and her sexy farm boy, Cree. She accepted me without hesitation, and never ran from the dark and dangerous secrets that I harbored. My new family loved me unconditionally, with their showers of sprinkles and impromptu dance parties. 
My life was perfectly imperfect until Tripp and his crazy-ass ideas of princesses. Our relationship is what most would describe as fuel meeting fire. We were both hell bent on burning each other to the ground. Tripp, fresh out of rehab, moved in with Milly and Cree to try and make a new life for himself. Tripp, the sexy as hell, charismatic beast, soon became one of my best friends. We shared our love of ice cream and tattoos as we blazed our own path that could only lead to a beautiful train wreck. The only question left is, will we set the countryside ablaze with our hot tempers and foul mouths, or will we paint our own happy ending filled with all the gushy shit normal people crave?

on SALE !!!


We meet Lacey and Tripp in book ONE in the My Way Series,

*Blog Tour* Tied Up in Heartstrings + Giveaway by Felicia Lynn

Tragedy ripped the security from her life. Left a single mother, Alexis's fear of loss insulates her from the rest of the world. Her best friends from college and close family are the only people she keeps close.
A man from her past has always been in love with Alexis. He’s never met anyone that measures up to her. Garrett is a musician, who never really imagined he’d have the fame and fortune that he's found. But, even with that, what he's always wanted is out of reach... or is it? When Garrett and Alexis meet up by chance a relationship begins. Neither expected what happens. She can’t be sure she’s ready for the complications a relationship brings. He will have to work overtime to win her heart without any assurances it will be successful. Alexis is learning about life without Jed, and is feeling more secure with parenting on her own. Garrett appreciates his fans and is enjoying his life on the road but misses having a private life. The lives they have built separately leave little room for a budding relationship, but their hearts won’t take that into consideration. Will the cards they’ve been dealt get in the way of a love that is meant to be? Is love enough to overcome loss and heartbreak? Can they accept all that the other is, without feeling like they are living in the shadow of their former lives?

*My Review*

Rating 4 1/2 stars out of 5

Tied up in Heartstrings is a book about second chances whether it be after a tragic loss or trying to fill a void in your life. This book for me was very emotional from the beginning all the way to the ending. Alexis has been through the unimaginable and now she must move on with her daughter as a single mother. I loved how this story was not rushed into a girl loosed husband then reunite with someone from her past. This story has a good buildup(good tempo). For neither Aleixs or Garrett figured that nothing more was going to come about in their relationship. I loved that Alexis has a awesome support system in her life that keeps her going and pushes her to follow her heart. Awesome book that I highly Recommend.
