Cover Reveal!! Tequila High by M. Leighton

Haley Brandt isn’t the one-night-stand type, but too much tequila and a man with two sinfully black eyes left her breathless and willing to break her own rules. Her only solace was the fact that she’d never see him again.
Until the next morning when she finds out he’s her ride out of town and back to the ranch where she grew up.  
Nixon Holt works with Haley’s father, so Haley makes her position clear—she doesn’t get involved with ranch employees. Ever.  At nineteen, she’d learned her lesson the hard way, and it became her one unbreakable rule.
But Nixon makes his position clear, too: He’s going to wear down Haley’s defenses and he won’t stop until she breaks all her rules for him. He’s well on his way when Haley finds out the one thing that could make her hate him. Nixon is left with two choices: walk away or break all his rules for her.


Cover Reveal!! Havoc by Kindle Alexander #tattoos&ties #giveaway #sneakpeak

Title: Havoc
Series: Tattoos & Ties #1
Author: Kindle Alexander
Genre: M/M MC Romance
Release Date: November 27, 2018 Cover Art: Reese Dante 

Keyes Dixon’s life is challenging enough as a full patch member of the Disciples of Havoc Motorcycle Club but being a gay biker leaves him traveling down one tough road. With an abusive past and his vow to the club cementing his future, he doesn’t believe in love and steers clear of commitment. But a midnight ride leads to a chance meeting with a sexy pretty-boy in a wicked hot sports car that has him going down quicker than a Harley on ice. 

Cocky Assistant District Attorney Alec Pierce lives in the shadow of his politically connected family. A life of privilege doesn’t equal a life of love, a fact made obvious at every family gathering. Driven yet lonely, Alec yields to his family’s demands for his career path, hoping for the acceptance he craves. Until he meets a gorgeous biker who tips the scales in the favor of truth…and he can no longer live a lie.

Can two men from completely different worlds…and sides of the law…find common ground, or will all their desires only wreak Havoc?

The screen illuminated Alec’s face, and even though Keyes wasn’t religious, he swore he heard the angels sing in that moment… The sight stole Keyes’s breath. He came to a stop directly in front of the tempting driver. Resting both hands on his hips, he got lost just looking at this beautiful man. Keyes opened his mouth to speak. He could absolutely take care of this problem, but the words didn’t come. Instead, he stayed mesmerized by the most gorgeous guy he’d ever seen.
“I have roadside assistance. I just have to remember which app to use.”
 Keyes almost lost his bad boy composure when Alec distractedly glanced up from his phone and winked at him. Hold it together, Key. He finally got his head to stop spinning and all the cheesy porn music to quit playing on continuous loop in the background. Alec probably just had a twitch. Why would the guy be flirting with him? On the off chance Alec happened to be gay, Keyes obviously wasn’t his type if the passenger were anything to go by. There was nothing refined or delicate about Key.
Even with the neurons misfiring in Keyes’s brain, he managed to clear his throat and lower his gaze to the grass to help find some fucking perspective. “Where you headed?” Wait. That wasn’t the statement he’d planned to make.
“I live in McKinney. He lives in the Uptown area of Dallas,” Alec answered, reading the screen as he cocked his head toward his putout passenger.
“What’re you doin’ out here?” Keyes asked. McKinney was a long way from the current location and as different as two places could possibly be.
Alec gave a humorless laugh while briefly lifting his gaze from the screen. Curious light eyes pinned Keyes in place. He wasn’t sure he’d ever seen eyes that color. Keyes’s mouth watered, and his cock plumped, homing in on exactly what it wanted. “Google Maps said this was a detour. Hang on.” Alec lifted the phone to his ear. Keyes could hear a faint sound of a voice on the other end. “I’m on some side road in maybe South Dallas, perhaps even North Ellis County. Can you find my location?”
“Listen, I can take care of this. I own a tire shop that’s about fifteen minutes from here.” For the first time since the car had spun off the road, Alec truly looked at him. Their gazes connected for one maybe two heartbeats before Alec’s brow wrinkled and his eyes lowered. Keyes felt the weight of Alec’s stare as his eyes blatantly roamed the length of his body. Not only did his dick stand at attention but the damn thing attempted to parade down Main Street waving a rainbow-colored flag. A range of expressions crossed Alec’s handsome face until the hand holding the phone lowered and those extraordinary eyes were back on his. Had the guy noticed the impromptu party taking place in his pants? Keyes shifted his weight to his other foot.
“I’m Alec Pierce.”


Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It's always a surprise to see what's coming next!
I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it's true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women's hair!
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life - I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations - regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal... I don't want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I'm going to tell you about Kindle.
I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I'll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died - weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn't have to be alone.
That time in my life was terrible. It's everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness - it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.
Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn't a time she wasn't there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It's its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn't be here today without her.

Fall By Kristen Callihan Review Blitz #bookreview #excerpt #teasers




By Kristen Callihan

The first time I met Jax Blackwood things went a little sideways.

In my defense, I didn’t know he was Jax Blackwood—who expects a legendary rock star to be shopping for groceries? More importantly, a blizzard was coming and he was about to grab the last carton of mint-chocolate chip.

Still, I might have walked away, but then he smugly dared me to try and take the coveted ice cream. So I kissed him. And distracted that mint-chip right out of his hands.

Okay, it was a dirty move, but desperate times and all that. Besides, I never expected he’d be my new neighbor.

An annoying neighbor who takes great pleasure in reminding me that I owe him ice cream but would happily accept more kisses as payment. An irresistible neighbor who keeps me up while playing guitar naked–spectacularly naked–in his living room.

Clearly, avoidance is key. Except nothing about Jax is easy to ignore—not the way he makes me laugh, or that his particular brand of darkness matches mine, or how one look from him melts me faster than butter under a hot sun.

Neither of us believes in love or forever. Yet we’re quickly becoming each other’s addiction. But we could be more. We could be everything.

All we have to do is trust enough to fall.





The air between us shifts. I’m filled with a strange giddiness, wanting to laugh for the fun of it, but I’m also too warm, my limbs oddly heavy as if simple movements might be too much for me.

His tone turns soft and cajoling, teasing the truth out of me. “Are you going to tell me what you do?” When I say nothing, the corners of his eyes crinkle. “I see. You’re going to torture me a bit.”

The warm, fuzzy feeling grows as I shrug. “Torture feels apropos in this scenario.”

He hums again, taking another step toward me. “What makes you think I won’t like being tortured by you?”

The heat of his body and the scent of his skin makes my head light and my pulse pound. How did it get to this point where the highlight of my day is flirting with Jax Blackwood? Despite the thrill, I know I’m in over my head. I haven’t gone out on a date in months because I form attachments, I get emotional, and then I hurt when they inevitably leave. And this man will leave. He is as bright and fleeting as a camera flash. I’ll be left with the image of him seared into my memory and nothing more.

I tell myself all of this, the voice in my head as stern as possible. But it doesn’t make me back away. It doesn’t stop my body from somehow straining toward his without even moving. Because it might be stupid of me, but I want to feel something that isn’t planned. Something, for however briefly, that’s real.

He’s too attuned to me not to notice. John’s lids lower as his attention slides down my body before easing back up to my face. Slowly, he rests his forearm on the wall beside my head. “Tell me, Stella,” he murmurs.

“No,” I whisper back, flirting, even though I shouldn’t.

His biceps bunch as he leans in, a smile dancing on his lips. “Tell.”

My breasts graze his chest, and I feel it in my toes.

“You’re crowding me.” I hate how breathy I sound.

“Can’t help it.” His voice is a rumble, the heat of his breath playing over my skin. He ducks his head, drawing close until our lips nearly brush, and when he speaks again, his tone is almost conversational, except for the husky quality that touches deep within my core. “You smell like strawberries. Fucking delicious.”

My lids flutter, and I swallow hard. “Ordinarily, I’d call you out on that cliché but since I’ve been eating strawberries, you aren’t exactly wrong.”

His chuckle is slow and easy, as he eases back and his gaze slowly travels over my face. “Were they sweet, Stella Button?”

He’s looking at my mouth like he might try to find out. My lips tremble in response, and John tracks the movement, his breathing getting deeper, faster. “You have two freckles on your lips. One on the top lip and one on the bottom corner.”

Those damn freckles. They were the bane of my adolescence. I hid them with lipstick and silently cursed whenever someone mentioned them.

Freckles don’t have any feelings, but I swear it’s as if he’s touching them.

“You’re just noticing this?” I try to make it sound like a joke, but it comes out weak and thready.

His own lips quirk. “Oh, I noticed. It’s distracting as hell. They’re like two little dots of butter toffee. Makes me want to lick them, get a taste.”

Oh, God. Lick them, please. I can almost feel it. I want to feel it.

No. Bad Stella. Behave.

John’s lips part a fraction like he just might take that taste.

“Back off,” I whisper. And yet somehow my traitorous hands find their way to his sides, running over the waistband of his jeans, holding him there.

John makes a sound deep in his throat and tilts his hips, pressing them against mine. A distinctly thick bulge nudges my belly. Both of us lose a breath, and then he’s closer, his cheek touching my temple. “You’ll have to let me go first.”

My thumbs slide under the edge of his shirt and find smooth, taut skin. A tremor goes through his body. I try to think, search for what the hell we’ve been talking about.

His lips brush the crest of my cheek as he murmurs against my skin. “Tell me what you do, Stella. You know you want to.”

My smile feels illicit. Somehow the action is directly tied to all my happy parts, making them draw hot and tight. “I don’t think I do.”

Another hum. “Liar. You’re dying to.”

My Fall Review . . .

"Music cannot be contained by mere walls, Stella Button." 

Finally John AKA Jax's story.   John has his demons and he's just trying to survive in life.  He's doing his best.  He still is a bit of a player.  He still puts on a brave face for everyone to not have to burden anyone.  He's also not happy.

Then after a run in in the freezer aisle he meets, Stella.  Then everything starts to spiral upwards.

Stella also puts on a brave face, and she too has some baggage.  However, Stella handles life a bit better than John, which makes her perfect on how to deal with John.   Their banter is superb.  I adored them together.

"I'm not trying to twist your arm here, sugar tits.  If you'd rather I play-"
"Oh, calm your britches, sugar nuts," she counters

Through John and Stella we get to see the world in a different light.  So often society and people go through the motions but people don't truly listen.  Both John and Stella's story portrayed that well.

"We live in a world where people greet each other with 'How are you?' But few of us actually want an answer.  It's kind of hilarious if you think about it.  We don't really want to know how someone else is doing, but we want to look as though we do."

After meeting Stella, John wants to do the right thing by her by taking it slow.  But just maybe he may have taken it too slow.   Poor Stella.

"Okay, but no sex at all?" I tilt my head back to meet his eyes.  "My brain can accept that this is a good idea, but my vag is a little hussy.  She's gonna be pouting if she's ignored."
Stella and John both start to blossom when they are around each other, but that does not mean that all their baggage went away.  If anything, it brought it closer to the surface.  Now all they have to do is learn how to survive properly and get the happiness and support they both deserve.

"Let yourself be loved, Stella Button.  You deserve it."

Another bonus of this book is the we get to see more Scottie, Sophie, Libby,  Killian and the other boys of Kill John

I can't wait for more from this series.  Hopefully it's Brenna story next.

This book tackled some hard issues, like mental health and death.  It also had chuckles, quirkiness and love.  I adored it.  

4 We all deserve love thumbs up!

She pushed off the counter and wrapped her arms around him. “Will,” she whispered.

He didn’t know what to do with all her softness and warmth and…and…sweetness. She was just too much for him. He wanted to push her away, tell her he was fine, to go make her pancakes or whatever she was making. But he couldn’t. He just couldn’t let her go.

Instead of reading his body language, his impulsive houseguest hugged him tighter, her hands caressing his back.

It unnerved him. And, oh, damn, that telltale tingling at the base of his spine meant he was getting aroused.

He breathed in the scent of her shampoo—like an expensive perfume—and felt the swish of her silky hair on his bare arms.

She gazed up at him with a look in her eyes that burned through whatever was left of his discipline, because he knew that just one lick of her lips would make him lose it completely.

His arms hooked around her back, his hand pressing the top swell of her bottom. That mouth, wet from her tongue, parted with an invitation he didn’t know if he could resist.

“You’re a good man, Will. Misguided, but good.”


That sexy mouth turned into a mischievous grin. “Yeah. You really are.” And then the connection snapped when she withdrew her arms and turned back to the counter. “I’ll see about finding somewhere else to stay in the morning.”


When she turned to him, he knew. He didn’t want to let her go.

“All the chefs are staying on the ranch, so they can take the train into Owl Hoot. The choice is yours, obviously, where you want to live, but the invitation is still open for you to stay here.”

Will wasn’t a stupid man. He knew something good when he saw it. And Delilah Lua was a gift. She brought a lightness and joy to this house it’d never had.

And, even if it was only for six weeks, he and Ruby would damn well take all she had to offer.

Book 2

My The Heartless Boyfriend  Review . . . 

It has been quite awhile since I've read anything from Erika Kelly, so when I heard about this I jumped at the chance to read and review it.   However, as I started to read it, I felt like I was missing a whole bunch of the background.  That is when I realized that this is book 2 within a series.  I then quickly put this book down and dove into The World's First Boyfriend, book1.  After reading this I found it much easier to get into the story line. 

I believe it is set up that you can pick up this book and read it without book 1.  And technically you can, but you may feel some things are missing.  It was much more enjoyable after reading book 1 first.

"I tell you what, Will Bowie, you came right out of nowhere and stole my heart."

This Bowie brothers are something else.  They are all successful athletes as well as loyal loving brothers with hearts of gold.  They were all also very single until Finn got his heart back and this time around it was Will to find his heart.

In The World's Worst Boyfriend, the story focuses around Finn and Calliope.   This is where we first hear of Delilah, whom is Calli's best friend.   Delilah is needing a break from the disappointment of her life and ends up landing at Will's house.   Here she meets Will and his very adorable sister Ruby.

Will is about structure, planning and success.  These are all things that have helped him survive the aftermath of a brutal heartless mother.   Most of us have some sort of mommy issues, and Will is no exception.

" . . . You're a man who loves hard and feels things deeply.  That's a beautiful and human, and I hate your mom for stealing that from you."

Will likes predictability and Delilah and Ruby are the two least predictable things to come into his life, and also the reason he fell so far for both of them.  

As Will starts to open up his heart to possibilities besides skiing, he also starts to conquer his past issues and find the love he always deserved.

"She's never going to be the mom you want her to be."

We don't always find love in the right place or time, but when it comes knocking we should keep the possibility open. 

I adore these Bowie men and can't wait for more from this series and this author.    Will and Delilah's story was sweet and uplifting.   And I absolutely adored Ruby and thought she was portrayed brilliantly.  I loved Delilah's passion, openness and loving compassionate ways.  She was the perfect match for Will.
3.5 Love when we least expect it thumbs up!
