Jo-Anna's Review:
 
This is my first book by Catherine that I've read and I enjoyed it. I agreed to read this book because I love YA novels and anything magical.
 
Eliza is the main heroine of this story and I like her a lot. She has a good head on her shoulders and is a smart girl. She is also very protective of her aunt and for that, I like her more.
 
Ren is a very interesting and mysterious person and without giving any spoilers, I'd like to see what's next in store for these two.
 
The story is equipped with action, magic, love, hurt, anger...every emotion you can think of. It keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish and it's a must read for anyone who loves a good YA supernatural romance.
 
This is a very well written story and it flows seamlessly from beginning to end.
 
The way Catherine writes the story, leaves you captivated and wanting more.
 
I'm looking forward to next book!

Angie J's Review:

I was given this book from the author.

Holy Hawtness this was amazing!! I am in love with this series so I may be a bit bias????  No not bias just know amazing writing when  I read it....LOL :)

 I was way excited to read this book because I find Rytsar mega hot and knowing Brie was going to be in Russian with him and Sir...SOLD!!! I will say I was a bit shocked to find out he was a sadist.  I didn't imagine him that way and TBH he kinda made me nervous then...sooo not a pain girl.

I loved getting to know Sir in a more personal way.  I loved finding out the back story on how he and Sir met.  It was a hilarious scene when they were playing chess and Rytsar cheated....LOL  I have to admit the last chapter was my favorite with Brie, Sir and Rytsar.   I will not even begin to tell you because you DEFO need to read it to appreciate it....giggles.

I was sad to see the way Brie's parents feel about Brie and Sir.  I understand any parent would be concerned but I felt they were way over the top in how they reacted to the couple.  I was also a bit sad for Ms. Clark...yes I was sad for her.....the back story made me feel for her.....unrequited love sucks.  Wanna know who she loves???  READ THE BOOK!!!!!

Ok my favorite parts were seeing Lea again.  I love how playful she is and finding out who she has some "feelings" for...wowzers!!!  Major interesting plot spinner...LOL.  OMG and Brie cooking for Gray was also a great part of the book....seems Sir has a funny side to him.  I also loved the last line...Red is such a good cliffhanger/teaser that I am busting at the seams to know "WHAT HAPPENED!!!!"

If you are a fan of this series, this is a great addition.  If you haven't read this series PLEASE start with Brie Learns the Art of Submission at the Training center...you will not be let down!!

Good Choice Reading Blog Tour Blast of Belong To You by Vi Keeland

TITLE: BLOG TOUR BLAST: Belong To You by Vi Keeland 
 I was born and raised in New York. I've been told I have a New York accent, on more than one occasion. It is pronounced cawfee, not coffee, right? But of course, being a true New Yawka, I believe everyone else has the accent.

I am one of six children, and come from a family of "steps, halves, ours, theirs and his" children. Even though the oldest of the six is only 48, we have given my incredible mom 17 grandchildren. 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 an attorney by day, and a romance author by night! I published my first book in 2013, First Thing I See and was thrilled at the overwhelming success! My next book, Belong to You, is due out April 4, 2013, and I have the hots for the man on the cover. ]

I 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.

My other loves are boating, jetskiing, parking my ass at the beach and traveling. My dream vacation is a backpack, passport and an open ticket to anywhere we can explore! I don't cook, pretty much because I am terrible at it, and I have no desire to improve.

Thank you for taking the time to read about me, and I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I like writing them!

Liz Crowe

BLURB:

Can two dark souls ever make a light?

As president of her own distribution company, Julie Dawson has all she ever wanted -- money, power, and respect. But her carefully crafted fa├žade conceals a  torment of abuse and helplessness.  After years remaining emotionally aloof, she is finally independent, but alone. Because she refuses to rely on anyone but herself ever again.

Evan Adams is no stranger to success, or personal demons. The horrific trauma that destroyed his twin sister, and tore his family apart, forced him to craft a new life from the ashes of the old. He's content enough, focusing ahead and not dwelling on his murky past. But something important is missing. He knows what that thing is but refuses to acknowledge it.

When a chance encounter brings these two strong-willed but damaged people together , what seems like a long, erotic journey through hell could lead them to a match made in heaven.

Starfish and Coffee by Kele Moon



Starfish and Coffee 

Book Blurb:

 On the island where they first met two lovers from opposite sides of the tracks are reunited. Now jaded and broken, Alex and Matt still can’t deny their sizzling connection or the memories of one perfect, uninhibited year together.

At twenty-two, Matt Tarrington is rich, good-looking and destined to be powerful, but behind that confident exterior lurks a man who resents the life his family thrust upon him. Desperate for an escape, Matt heads to Mirabella Island off the coast of Florida for a year of relaxation and some wild nights with vacationing party-girls.

Matt never expected to find real passion in the arms of Alex Hunter, a handsome, laid-back local.

Alex is gay, but closeted. Matt should be completely off limits, but Alex finds the deeply in denial rich boy too tempting to ignore. Especially when a bet has them working together, fighting the heat in the rundown, beachside cafe where Alex sweats for every dollar.

Their love felt inevitable until youth left them vulnerable to hatred and greed. Now after six years of hating the lives they live, Alex and Matt will have to risk it all for the second chance they both desperately need



Angie J's Review:

I bought this book because my friend and fellow Blogger Denise was going on and on and on and on and on about this book so I said "If Denise likes, I will as well".  We have very similar book tastes.  Man oh man am I glad I met her.  She NEVER steers me wrong with book advise.  WOW! HAWT! SEXY! DELICIOUS! and GESH I need to reread that like NOW!

I have to say before I even begin my review....I love love love books where people fall in love.  The sex can be M/M, F/F, M/F, M/F/M, or annnny other way to make a relationship work.  I love people falling in love.  I love the fact that I can read a story about different relationships other then "traditional" M/F .  If you are not as "open" as I am with my "Free Love" thinking, this book is prolly not for you.  Matt and Alex have some steamy...strike that......FRIGGING HAWT, burn you up and leave you panting sex.  *Wipes my forehead and gulps down my sweet tea*

I have to say my favorite scene in this book is when Alex and Matt have their first "encounter" on the beach.  Matt is really pushing Alex to admit he and Holly are just friends and not an item like the town believes.  I love how Matt and Alex can be steamy and sexy with each other and then joking and totally giving each other crap like friends.  I feel bad that the town Alex lives in and Matt is visiting is so close minded to homosexuality.  It is very sad that they have to hide their love for each other.  i have always been open and supportive so I feel for anyone who can't be open about who they care for like I can be.....ok off my soap box........

Well lets just say Alex and Matt part ways due to lies told by another person.  They spend the 6 years trying to make it a go of life but knowing their soul mate is not near...life sucks.  Matt decided to visit and SPARKS FLY!!!  The couple try to re-create what they had but will it stick or is this the closure they both need?????  Guess you better read and find out then huh!!!

I was a Russian spy at the ripe age of thirteen, given my uncanny ability to tell if someone was lying ( I also read fortunes on the weekends). By sixteen I had become too much of a handful for the Lethal Intelligence Ensemble (L.I.E.). I was quickly exiled to the south of France where I worked with wayward elephants in the Circus of Roaming Animals and People (C.R.A.P.). I was able to make ends meet by selling my organs on the black market for pocket change and beer money. At the age of twenty three I decided to expand my horizons and become a blackjack dealer in Ireland. I loved the family atmosphere at Barney's Underground Liquor Lounge (B.U.L.L.). People couldn't resist the allure of Liquor up front and poker in the rear. Eventually I became tired of the rear and headed off to the United States to try my hand at tall tales. That is what brings us here today. If you have a moment I'd like to tell you a story.

Deleted Scene:

 

Shane March 18, 2010 11:13 am Jake and May’s home

 

                   “You’re late.” May gave me a stern look but I could see her struggling to keep her lips from pulling into a smile. She brushed her deep red hair over her shoulder in a dramatic gesture and put her hands on her hips.

                   “May, I would like you to meet Jenn.”

                   May couldn’t contain her smile any longer. She pulled Jenn into an awkward hug. Jenn grunted and I could hardly suppress my laugh as I shook my head.

                   “Pleasure to meet you,” Jenn’s voice cracked as her nerves began to get the best of her. It was adorable how her cheeks tinged pink when she was nervous. I realized I was staring a second after May as she shot me a wink over Jenn’s shoulder. She released her embrace as Jake entered the living room.

                   “You’re late,” Jake called out as he took his place beside his wife.

                   “I’m so sorry. It is all my fault,” Jenn rambled.

                   “This isn’t work. He’s not going to fire you,” I whispered to her as she worried her lip with her teeth. My gaze dropped to her mouth as her lips parted slightly and she let out a small sigh. “If you want me to kick his ass just say the word.”

                   Jake rolled his eyes as Jenn let out a small laugh.

                   “Well, it is getting a little warm in here. I’m going to open the window.” May laughed as she made her way back into the kitchen and pushed up the window above the sink. Jake had a look of disapproval on his face as he folded his arms over his chest.

                   “Enjoying your vacation? I hope my cousin isn’t bothering you too much.” Jake’s eyes flicked to mine but quickly returned to Jenn’s. I clenched my jaw and kept myself from saying anything in response.

                   “He’s no bother. We’ve been having a lot of fun.” The pink returned to her cheeks.

                   “Well, are you just gonna stand by the door all day or are you gonna eat? The food is getting cold.” May called out as she sat dished on the table.

                   “Where are the boys?” I asked as I gestured for Jenn to follow me into the kitchen.

                   “They ate an hour ago.” Her eyes locked onto mine before she went back to her task of setting out silverware. “I’ve released them into the wild. They are off at the neighbor’s.”

                   I pulled out one of the oak chairs and waited for Jenn to sit before sliding into the one next to her. May and Jake took their seats across the table from us.

                   “Help yourselves.” May grabbed a biscuit from the plate in front of her.

                   “Thank you so much, May. This all looks amazing.” Jenn said, her voice finally sounding more like her own.

                   “It is no trouble at all. I had to devise a plan to meet the girl who is occupying all of Shane’s time.” I cleared my throat and glanced to Jake, pleading with him silently to stop May. He just smiled and shook his head. I should have known he would be no help. He disapproved of Jenn and me talking from the moment he found out.

                   “That’s a nice shirt, Shane. The color really brings out your eyes.” May shoved a bite of scrambled eggs into her mouth.

                   “Thank you. Jenn picked it out.” I glanced to Jenn who was smiling proudly. The flashback of being at the mall with her, being inside that photo booth with her lips pressed against mine came to the forefront of my thoughts.

                   “She has great taste,” May now had a permanent smirk on her face. It did not go over my head that she was now talking about more than the shirt. I wanted to kick her under the table. Like she was reading my mind, she slid her chair back a few inches and took a big gulp of her orange juice.

                   “She does taste great.” As the words left my mouth I knew there was no hope that no one had heard my mix-up.  May choked and sputtered on her drink and Jenn looked frozen, holding a piece of bacon midair. “That’s not-,” I struggled to correct myself as Jake grabbed his drink and raised it in the air with a victorious smirk.

                   “You have a lovely home, May.” Jenn bit off a bite from her bacon, avoiding eye contact with anyone else at the table.

                   “Thanks. I bet it must be a bit of a shock to you.”

                   “Why would it be a shock?” Jenn furrowed her brow.

                   “I’d just assumed anyone who works with Jake would think he lives under a bridge somewhere with the rest of the trolls.” She laughed as Jake glared at her. Jenn nearly choked on her bite as we all laughed and relaxed a bit.

                   “Come on.” Jake set his fork down on his plate and narrowed his eyes at his wife. “I’m not that bad am I, Jenn?”

                   “That’s not right. You can’t ask her that.” May shot back waving her hand in front of Jake. That was one thing I loved about May she had a way of making anyone feel relaxed. I hoped that she would form a friendship with Jenn. I wanted someone to be here for her when I had to leave. I swallowed back the lump that had formed in my throat.

                   “I’m fair.” Jake gestured to Jenn in hopes she would back him up.

                   “You are fair…ly mean.” She crinkled her nose, waiting for his response.
                   “I like you.” May’s eyes lit up at Jenn and I knew I wouldn’t have to worry about her being alone.
