A Huge Thank You to all my Favorite Authors. And reasons why you should love them!

 

 

 

For the last couple of years we have been given the opportunity to read and review books before they come out by fantastic authors. Some Indie, some already established and well known authors.

This is a Thanks to the authors for the chance to do one of the things we love most. READ! You have made us laugh, cry, emotional dysfunctional, happy and shocked. Movies don’t hold those feelings into just single words. An avid reader like us dwell on those books that truly affect you.

We understand, in each book the writer is putting a piece of themselves in the story. Open for anyone to put their judgement out for the world to see. You need to have balls of steel to write a book. A brain that wonders into other realms of imagination. And a heart that has felt all the emotions that the reader will feel by the time the last page comes to a close.

Brains, Hearts and Balls. That pretty much sums up a great author. It is a truth that a person can live hundreds of lives by just reading books. People like me stutter through our words when writing. So this is the reason why we are giving a shout out to those authors that can.

There are numerous authors we have truly loved this year. Some of the books are from last year but most from this year. Here are a few that deserve the love from all readers. Make it known which author moves you!

The Virgin Romance Novelist made us laugh at the most awkward moments. Like on a plane, by a stranger, who was trying to read over my shoulder. About a smoking baby powder missing briar patch. Read and you will understand.

T.L. Smith
Antagonize Me. Can’t even explain what made this book so great. It is a reread. In fact, I will be doing just that this month. Just plain fun and enjoyable. This author can write all different stories. Don’t expect the same thing twice.

Shawna Romkey
Speak of the Devil. It was surprising. Intriguing with great characters. You get a peek into Hell. Or salvation.

Olivia Cunning
Insider. Liked the book, but I think it is overall Olivia’s books. They are all really great. No limit.

JL Massey
The Red Door. I read The Black Door this year. Very Dark. I will never forget that book. However it was The Red Door that sucked me in. This is a major warning to all people who do not like BDSM. This goes beyond what you expect. Pushes passed any limit.

http://www.amazon.com/Red-Door-Book-ebook/dp/B00MUZM3DU/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1438469246&sr=1-1&keywords=the+red+door+jl

 Colleen Hoover
Never Never. Both books great. Obviously Colleen is a big time author now. This is one of the best she has written.

http://www.amazon.com/Never-Part-Two-Three-ebook/dp/B00TUXIF9G/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1438469295&sr=1-1&keywords=never+never+part+3

 
I could write a 30 page essay of authors we have loved this year, but I am trying to limit my list.
Here are more honorable mentions. These authors are just as good as the above. However I would gab nonstop why I like the books and love the authors. Check out their links.

Hidden by Monica May!!!



TITLE: Hidden
SERIES: The New Orleans Temptation Series
AUTHOR: Monica May
RELEASE DATE: July 31, 2015



Hidden - Book 2 of
The New Orleans Temptation Series

After losing her husband, Samantha throws her life into recreating her great aunt’s erotic club on Bourbon Street. She does her best to avoid getting close to any man, but how long can she hold out when Parke enters her life? While trying to avoid her attraction to Parke, Samantha tries her best to make her club a hit by hiring the most beautiful people in New Orleans.

During the hiring process, Shelby begs her to hire a woman she met at the battered women’s shelter. Reluctantly, Samantha caves and hires Sunny, not knowing much about her. Will this hire bring down her entire club? Samantha has no idea that Sunny is running from a man, a man that has vowed to find and kill her if she ever ran from him again. As the president of the MC group The Flaming Dragons, his reach is far and wide. Will he find her? Can Jackson, Sunny’s new love interest, keep her safe?


Darra's Review:

I’ll give you a warning on this book. You are thrown into the plot immediately. Straight to the point and no fluff. It captures your attention right from page one. Which is refreshing because I do not need over explaining about each character and why they are what they are.
Personally I like books that have several points of views. I feel that it helps you understand each one and how they feel about what is going on around them.
Samantha, I like from the beginning. Sunny, you feel bad about what happens to her and wanted to know how her life progresses. Jackson and Parke, amazing in different ways. Relationships grow and that is when you know if you will like a person or not.
I don’t like to spoil a book. However I was disappointed in Rex. I thought he would be a bit smarter and had a better plot at the end. Doesn’t he watch CSI? Be original, think outside the box.
Other than the douchebag Rex, I enjoyed all the people in the story. You grow to like each one of them and makes a book much more enjoyable.
My rating is a 4.
 
 

Sunny's Review:

 
I really love the guys in this book. You have Parke who is just straight up honest with Samantha, well kind of. Then you have Jackson who is basically a Knight in Shining Armor. He was protective of Sunny from day 1. I liked the girls too. Samantha is unapologetic about her life and does what she wants. I love it and I wish I was a little bit more like that.
 
At first reading the synopsis I was mad that one of the characters was named Sunny. I have yet to figure out why my name is associated with strippers or hookers in most books. So I was not planning on liking Sunny. Now, after reading it, I liked Sunny. I like the reason for her name.
 
This book has a pretty good storyline and again I liked the characters. I would recommend this book. You have romance with a little bit of drama. 
 
I am giving this book 4 stars! Go get it!


EXCERPT

“From the moment I saw you standing on the street, I knew I needed you.” His arms are wrapped around my body pulling me in tight. It’s like he feels frightened to let me go. “And when you started thinking about bolting, I saw it in your eyes. I knew you were going to walk out of my life, and I couldn’t let that happen.




Devastated – Book 1 of 
The New Orleans Temptation Series


#99cents



Living the American Dream Shelby had everything she could have dreamed of. A handsome husband two wonderful children a beautiful home and a great job. What else could she ask for?

In an instant her world is turned upside down when she innocently looks at her husband’s phone. With this Devastating discovery Shelby has to decide if she will walk away from twenty years of marriage or will she find a way to fit into Grant’s erotic world?

Will she walk on the wild side she never knew she had? How far will she go? If she crosses the line will she be able to live with herself when the sun comes up? Or will she let her over conservative personality end her marriage?

Sunny's Review:

 


This book was hard for me. I am that person that thinks certain things are black and white, there is no grey. This book hit the "grey" area. Now, having said that, this book will probably be very enjoyable to people that aren't me.
 
I like that Shelby was willing to change and do what she felt like she needed to do for herself. It was a little bit interesting to watch the feelings and emotions that the characters felt while going through the changes. I think that Monica May did an amazing job of making you feel what the characters were feeling.
 
I am giving this book 4 stars out of 5. You don't have to read this one before Hidden but I would recommend it.

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped. Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking. Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze! cooltext128330221187949
