Review: A PROMISE MADE by Anissa Garcia!


Release Day: November 3rd, 2016

My Review: This is another one that was enjoyable, but I couldn't get too into it. Right away, Marla got on my nerves, and I don't think I ever recovered from my initial impression of her. I get why she was wary of Josh in the beginning, but she was downright rude to him, which made her seem like a jerk more than anything else.

But I continued reading, and got into the story and the relationship. It really was just Marla's first impression that brought this whole thing down for me. That said, I will gladly check out more by this author, because I liked her storytelling.

Cover Lovin': Sweet and simple - love it!

Recommendation: No prior knowledge required, this works just fine on it's own.

Final Rating: THREE out of FIVE stars (3/5)! Good, but I had some issues with the main character.

Happy Reading!

a-promise-made_finalhigh   About A Promise Made: Josh McKenzie may come off as intimidating with his solid build and cold stare, but when trouble calls, Marla quickly learns there is more to the sexy tatted man with the British accent. And if she’s not careful, she can easily lose herself in his gentle touch and soft voice. A feisty redhead with a mouth that won’t quit, Marla Sullivan knows how to push all of Josh’s buttons, making him want her in the worst way. His biggest hurdle is breaking through her stubborn walls and proving he’s here to stay. When Marla’s faced with an unknown danger, Josh is forced to reveal his buried past. Promises made and surfaced truths may be the catalyst that brings them together...or pushes them further apart.

From NYT Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson…
Sunder lead singer Sebastian Stone is no stranger to trouble.
It follows him wherever he goes.
From his track record, he should have known Shea Bentley would be a problem. But the soft, innocent Southern girl was all he could see. All he wanted to see. Now they’re both drowning in a sea of desire, sinking hopelessly into a world of lust, and their passion refuses to let them up for air.
No matter how much he wants that to be enough…Shea has an inescapable past. One she would do anything to keep running from.
But some secrets never die.
If her history is dragged from the depths, it could tear his world apart. He has to decide if she’s worth fighting the tide or if they should just sink like a stone in the sea.

Review: THE COVENANT by Michelle St. James!

covenant-bt-ban Today we have the blog tour for Covenant by Michelle St. James!! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!

Release Date: September 6th, 2016

Type: Book one, Series, Mafia, Contemporary Romance, Accents!

My Review: I think this was well written, it just didn't work for me, for some reason. I thought the author's descriptions and language were done well, it just took a while for me to get into this. I liked the characters, so I'm a little let down that this wasn't a hit with me. Especially since I'm loving this whole mob/mafia trend.

This is one of those situations where I really know the problem lies not with the book, but with me. I didn't get sucked in as much as I needed to, to really enjoy it. I know if I read this again when I'm in a different mind set, I will probably love it. So I'm already planning to curl up with this book again in the not-too-distant future.

Final Rating: THREE POINT FIVE out of FIVE stars (3.5/5)! It just wasn't doing it for me, but it's totally a personal thing. The writing was good, the story was spot-on - I just didn't get sucked in, and the pacing felt off.

30732885 About Covenant: Danger. Passion. Obsession.   Heir to a worthless title, Christophe Marchand knows the only way to build an empire in the twenty-first century is with single-minded focus and cold, hard pragmatism.   Which means no distractions.   But that's before he lays eyes on Charlotte Duval.   Charlotte Duval is no man's arm candy.   An expert in antique furniture, Charlotte is in Paris to close up her recently deceased father's antique store. Her plan? Finish the job as quickly as possible, preferably without touching the still-tender wound of their estranged relationship, and return to L.A..   And even the enigmatic Christophe Marchand can't tempt her to stay.   Then the discovery of an elaborate ring hidden inside a 16th century writing desk sets off a chain of events that sends her to Christophe for protection. Soon the pair are traveling to Vienna in search of answers to an unsolved theft that once rocked the art world. But when their hunt intersects with an ominous takeover of Christophe's business, it becomes clear that their common cause will either destroy them -- or force them to come to terms with the true price of love.   This is not your mother’s mob.

Excerpt: GILT: ALL FALL DOWN by Geneva Lee



Its taken a lot of years for me to build up enough scar tissue where my mom is concerned that her barbs and dismissals dont hurt me anymore, but apparently, she can still catch me off guard.

“Im staying at Josies,” I tell her in broken fragments while I try to piece together what could be so terrible that she would deign to leave her five-star life and slum it in the burbs.

“Ill come over this evening,” my mom says. “Should I bring McDonalds?”

“Yeah mom, get me a Happy Meal,” I say flatly. We hang up and I wonder if shes experiencing some type of medical incident thats caused a temporary bought of amnesia. Maybe she hit her head and thinks Im nine years-old and that Ive been at Josies for an extended sleepover. 

“What was that about?” Josie asks as soon as Im off the phone.

I give her a look that says way more than what comes out of my mouth next. “Guess whos coming to dinner?”
