#BlogTour: Cloudy Mirrors by Shane Roberts



Cloudy Mirrors by Shane Robert
A Standalone Novel
 Romantic Suspense Novel
Releasing June 5th!


Addiction—I can’t beat it without you; I can’t beat it with you.

When I’m with you, I’m addicted.
The way you taste, feel, and burn will forever be my favorite.

The way you messed my life up is exactly what I asked for.

I had the perfect life but was starving for something more.

Then I met you.

A perfect disaster I couldn’t get enough of no matter what the cost.

Shane Robert spent his whole life a Michigan native until he entered the United States Air Force after high school graduation. Traveling from San Antonio, Texas to Biloxi, Mississippi, he eventually found a new home as an Air Traffic Controller in Salt Lake City where his tower overlooks the mountains of Utah. 

He spends the summer playing soccer and the winters skiing while studying Counter Terrorism at American Military University. You can often find him in the tattoo shop adding to his collection, or writing on his sofa with his feet up and the XBOX on in the background. If there's one thing he's good at doing, it's living in the moment.

About EASY NIGHTS (Boudreaux Series #6)

The Boudreaux Series—Sexy. Intriguing. Easy.

No one said change was easy…

Savannah Boudreaux knows what it is to hurt. To bleed. To be afraid that the man she’s promised to be true to until “death do us part” might in fact separate them far sooner than anyone had ever anticipated. But Van also knows what it is to survive. To move on. To live life to the fullest. With five brothers and sisters and a loving mother as her constant source of strength during the pain and the healing, Van realizes there is little else she needs.

But some things never change…

Benjamin Preston sat on the sidelines of the Boudreaux family for years, in love with a woman he couldn’t have. As the best friend of the Boudreaux brothers since childhood, Ben has seen both tragedies and joys in the family. And as a former MMA fighter and KravMaga expert, Ben’s used to fighting for what he wants—and winning. His hands were tied when Savannah married her high school sweetheart not long after graduation, but now two years have passed since Ben found Savannah broken in her own home.

Sometimes what you need most has been right in front of you the whole time…

Van’s convinced that happiness isn’t in the cards for her, no matter how right it feels to be in Ben’s strong arms—and his bed. Ben is determined to win her heart and fight for her trust. He’s promised to protect her, to be her friend. But more than anything, he wants to finally make her his, and this is one fight he’s not willing to lose.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream. Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.

BLURB


I had it all.
Breaking into the entertainment business as a teenager wasn’t easy. I spent years of my childhood traveling, auditioning and hoping my big break would come. And when I did, I rose to a level I never imagined.
Elle Tyler: model, singer and actress. I couldn’t go anywhere without security anymore. It was everything I ever wanted and more - fame, fortune and worldwide recognition. At age twenty-four, I was living a dream. 
But a single act of violence shattered my fairytale existence. In a matter of seconds, all the goodness in me was ripped to shreds. Overnight, the people around me dropped away, moving on to find the next big thing. I gave up on myself, becoming a woman so dark and forlorn I no longer recognized myself.
But the stranger who saved me that day, Justin Lockhart, never gave up on me. He still saw light through my darkness. And as we grew closer, I started to see it, too. And I also started to see that before that terrible day, maybe I didn’t really have it all. Maybe I was always missing the only thing that really matters.





Review

In the world of BBFs there are swoony heros and then there are the Lockhart brothers. In this case, Justin, the youngest of the brothers.

Justin finds himself saving pop star Elle Tyler from a brutal attack from a mad man. And although the woman he finds is in the worse condition of her life, he's not able to get her out of his mind. Elle had it all, but the moment she's robbed of her security and the way she sees herself by her assailant, her world and the way she perceive people around comes crumbling down. To her surprise, the man who saved her life, is the one person who is not blinded by her fame or her scars, and the one who will provide the support she so desperately needs.

The relationship between Elle and Justin is nothing more than a friendship with some attraction in the mix, but soon those feelings start transforming and a slow burning desire begins to surface. But life doesn't come easy to these two, there's still a crazy stalker on the loose and a secret that threatens to destroy their still fragile relatioship.

I'm a big fan of this series, the way the author show us the love and support this family displays for each other as well as the humorous grief the brothers give each other, is what makes this series so appealing and captivating.

This is a book with a bit of angst, romantic flare and a whole lot of love. The writing is raw when it needs to be and definitely realistic. Sometimes life put us in situations that bring out the strength hidden deep inside of us, sometimes life give us an unexpected hero who is ready to show us that the scars we carry on the outside only represent the fire that push us to survive the most difficult times.

Blog Tour #review: Retaliate by M.N. Forgy

Retaliate (Sin City Outlaws Book 3) by M.N. Forgy is 
NOW LIVE!
Retaliate_3 amazon.jpg
Blurb
Being the Vice President of the Sin City Outlaws Motorcycle Club comes with its perks.
Respect, power, and easy women whenever I want. I have control in everything I do.
Because of that, I wasn’t expecting my president to put me on babysitting duty, and on a female cop of all fucking people. I kill law enforcement, not protect them. 

Alessandra pretends to be the good-guy hiding behind that shiny badge. But I see the darkness dancing in her eyes, and it draws me to her in the worst way. I want to devour that act of innocence, pull her over the line of justice, and into my bed.

I just wasn’t expecting the handful of secrets I got behind that badge of honor I ripped from her chest.  Because now, we’re retaliating against a common enemy together.
retaliate teaser 1.png

Excerpt 
“So, you came here to what, let loose?” I ask suggestively, lust hanging from the tip of my tongue.

She looks up through hooded eyes, her hands fidgeting with the hem of her shirt.

Taking a small step, I invade her space. Using my finger, I tuck it firmly under her chin making her look me in the eyes. God, she’s so fucking soft to touch, my hands itch to take advantage of her body and soul. That’s what I do, I devour innocent women, and scar their souls to the point they’re damaged goods.

“Were you going to fuck one of my men tonight, Alessandra?” I ask hastily.

Her throat bobs as she swallows, fire igniting her eyes as she pulls away. She’s a pistol and not the kind you love and shine every day with care. More like the kind you’re scared to use because it may backfire on you at any minute.

“So what if I was? Why do you care?” She raises a challenging brow, her voice sharp. A burning sensation combusts in my chest thinking about her riding one of my guy’s dicks.

“I forbid you to open your legs to any of my brothers, do you understand?” My rash decision comes from an unknown place. An insatiable hunger beading at the tip of my dick.

Her jaw drops, and her hands curl into fists.

“Who do you think you are to dictate who I screw?” she scowls.

My temples pound with annoyance and anger, done with this back and forth.

Leaning down my lips a hair’s length away from her face, I intimidate her to the point she looks away and purses her lips.

“Maybe you didn’t get the memo, Blue Bird, but now that Zeek is playing daddy… I run this fucking city. Therefore, I say who you fuck, and don’t fuck.”

Her chocolate eyes snap to mine, and I know I have her full attention. Which I want, I want her to look at me, to really see me. All of me.

Review

MN Forgy you never fail in bring a killer book that grabs your attention from page one, and before you know it you're at the end point saying, wow, that was awesome, I think I will read it again. 
Felix and Alessandra are two different kinds of people, and to the outer world should never belong together. A love story isn't in the cards for a rough and rowdy biker and a member of the police force who isn't going to end up like her best friend and fall head over heels for said biker. She will be the best cop she can be and follow in the footsteps of her deceased father. Her mind will lead her way and she will ignore that zing she gets whenever she sees Felix, just like Felix fights what he feels whenever he sees her. But who can truly fight what soon becomes the other half of your heart and soul?  NO ONE, that's who. 
This book starts off with a bang and after the first few pages I was hooked, truly hooked and found myself doing the talking to the book thing. I do this when I come to a part that I think I know what is to come. Usually I am wrong but it is fun to argue with the pages. 
The build up of this relationship was slow as neither were willing to give into the attraction they felt and due to their personal beliefs never dreamed they could work together. But who better to match up than total opposites. 
I love  the progression of the book and it flowed naturally. As you add the other characters into the mix you find that you are there with them taking it all. And I loved the mixed in parts of a real slap down to a chick that deserves a lot more than she got. That was one part I was cheering and encouraging Alessandra to do it again. 
The other thing I enjoyed from this book were the intimate moments that were written into the story, hey were well written and didn't drag on with a repeated acts like you will find in some books. To the point it was and then on with life. I find this quite enjoyable as I wanted to get back to the story at hand. 
The twists and turns we find mixed added a lot of depth to the story. They were the extra zap that made the reader crave the story.  
All in all, I loved the book and I encourage anyone who wants an MC book with action and drama to partake of this little gem. 
Can't wait for the next one.

#CoverReveal: Royally Endowed by Emma Chase

     


Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times—but Ellie Hammond’s willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him??

Sexy. As. Hell.

And Ellie’s perky enough for both of them.

For years, she’s had a crush on the intense, protective royal security guard—but she doesn’t think he ever saw her, not really.

To Logan, Ellie was just part of the job—a relative of the royal family he’d sworn to protect. Now, at 22 years old and fresh out of college, she’s determined to put aside her X-rated dreams of pat-downs and pillow talk, and find a real life happily ever after.

The Queen of Wessco encourages Ellie to follow in her sister’s footsteps and settle down with a prince of her own. Or a duke, a marquis…a viscount would also do nicely.

But in the pursuit of a fairy tale ending, Ellie learns that the sweetest crushes can be the hardest to let go. *** Logan St. James grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, in a family on the wrong side of the law. But these days, he covers his tattoos and scars with a respectable suit. He’s handsome, loyal, brave, skilled with his hands and…other body parts.

Any woman would be proud to bring him home to her family.

But there’s only one woman he wants.

For years he’s watched over her, protected her, held her hair back when she was sick, taught her how to throw a punch, and spot a liar.

He dreams of her. Would lay down his life for her.

But beautiful Ellie Hammond’s off-limits.

Everybody knows the bodyguard rules: Never lose focus, never let them out of your sight, and never, ever fall in love.
