Synopsis
Meet Liv and Danny…

Liv loves Danny. She knows she loves him more than he loves her, so she lets him go without a fight when his parents make him move back to America. She knows she will never love anyone like she loved him, but she has to move on.

Danny loves Liv. He knows he loves her more than she loves him, because she does nothing to get him to stay, so he goes quietly when his parents leave the UK. He knows he will never love anyone like he loved her, but he has to move on.

Twelve years on, they have made a good job of pretending, they may have almost forgotten. But when they get in touch via Facebook, it seems that it is all still there. They quickly find that they are intensely compatible in ways they hadn’t even begun to explore before they were forced apart. 

Can they put aside their fears and give it a go? Or will deep rooted doubts and insecurities tear them apart?

Author Bio
'I am what I am,' as the song goes. 'I don't want praise, I don't want pity. I bang my own drum, some think its a noise, I think its pretty. So what if I love each sparkle and each bangle. why not see things from a different angle? Your life is a shame 'til you can shout out, I am what I am."


So here goes...I'm Kerry, I live with my family outside London. I am married to the love of my life and we have two amazing, beautiful children and a nutball Boston terrier, called Betty. 



I graduated from the Surrey Institute of Art and Design with a degree in Fashion. I realised straight away that the industry wasn't for me, so I've been creatively frustrated ever since. I have tried a bit of everything to satisfy my need for a creative outlet. Nothing keeps me happy for long. Until I discovered writing. Writing a book has always been a dream, but I had no clue where to start. Then one day, parking my car at the supermarket, Liv & Danny came to me like a thunderbolt. I don't know where they came from, but I raced home and started making them real. Now I have two books to publish and lots more ideas to work on.


I am extremely prone to crushes on boys in books...on trains, in the street, wherever. From my early infatuation with Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing and Tom Cruise in Cocktail, to my recent obessions with book-boyfriends like Christian Grey, Travis Maddox and Kellan Kyle, I have always been the same. For the time it takes me to read a book I have an intense love affair with the characters, sometimes they stay with me for a week, sometimes its for life. Sometimes I feel like I will need therapy to cope with the fact that they are not real and will never be mine! Even though I am devoted to my husband, I'll never change, not as long as brilliant, creative writers keep giving me deeply flawed, yet perfect men to love...

I hope, I dream, that these are the types of characters I can one day create to be obsessed over.

Blog Tour: Ambrosia by Erin Noelle- Review

Wednesday, June 26, 2013



 
  Ambrosia (Book Boyfriend)
By Erin Noelle
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes&Noble 
Rating: 4.5 Glasses of Wine

 Book Blurb:
After coming to terms with the tragedy that rocked her world, Scarlett MacGregor has returned to try to pick up the pieces of the broken relationships that she left behind.

Ash and Mason were left devastated and heartbroken following Scarlett’s sudden, unannounced departure. They are both ready and willing to forgive her and welcome her back into their lives with open arms. 
However, a lot can happen in 8 months…

Scarlett must learn to overcome the obstacles thrown in her path to prevent the past from repeating itself. 
Can she learn to fly with her own wings and discover the secret to eternal love?

Recommended for readers 17+ due to sexual content and harsh language.
Our Review:
Much to my delight I stumbled across this amazing story called Metamorphosis while browsing Amazon one afternoon. I was hooked from the beginning and loved every minute. So when I was told we could read the ARC of Ambrosia, I about fell out of my chair!! If you have not read Metamorphosis yet then STOP!!! Go enter the giveaway, (who doesn't love a free kindle?!?).
Read it and love it and then come back and read my review! CHEERS!!!

Angel wings or butterfly wings? A roller coaster of emotions that will leave some readers hating it, some loving it and some saying WTF!

"No matter what I feel for Ash, I can't forget that he never made me first. Your souls mate shouldn't be you dirty little secret.

Ash left Scarlett crushed at the end of Metamorphosis and drove her into the arms of another man. Mason the sexy rocker that has never hidden his feelings for Scarlett takes her back with open arms. Mason and Scarlett's relationship heats right up from the beginning of the book. The lust that these two feel for each other is all consuming and raw. But Mason is hiding something that could tear them apart. Long distance relationships are always hard. Especially when the man who still loves you, and your heart still wants wont go away.

I COULD NOT ALLOW HIM TO BREAK ME, I WOULD NOT ALLOW HIM TO BREAK ME. NOT AGAIN. Just as I was about to tell him to fuck off, he spoke. "At least allow me a proper goodbye to the girl who will own my heart forever."

Ash watches from the sidelines as  his "butterfly" choses another man. With Evies death and Scarlett's departure, Ash opens his eyes to what he really wants in life......Scarlett. Determined to not let her get away again, Ash patiently waits for his opportunity to show her just how sorry he really is and how much he loves her. When relationships are tested and tragedy strikes Ash Isis the one there for Scarlett to lean on.

"Fate will find away"

Scarlett is ruled by lust and love. Emotionally she is still suffering from her best friends death. Confused by what her heart wants and what she thinks is best for her she struggles to find peace with Mason and Ash. Insecurities get in the way and one night with too many drinks,  mistakes are made that might be hard to forgive. Who will be there for her when she needs a shoulder to lean on? 

“All I want for you is to find happiness, even if it costs me me mine."

       “I just want to help build you back up, not tear you down any further.”

Ladies pick your wings and chose a side. Grab some tissues and a glass of wine! Ok you might need a whole bottle of wine!!!! You will laugh, cry, cuss and scream WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?! Erin does not disappoint once again and the best part.......there will be a third book!!!! This reader can not wait to see what Erin has in store for Scarlett, Mason and Ash. I give Ambrosia by Erin Noelle 4.5 glasses of wine.

"I owed my happiness to both of them. One taught me how to fly like an angel - to free my spirit, to accept forgiveness, and to love without restraint. The other had taught me to fly like a butterfly ~ to embrace change, to celebrate innocence and vulnerability, and to open up my soul. Together, they had both given me the courage and the strength to fly with my own wings."

Fallen Crest Family by Tijan - Review

Tuesday, June 25, 2013




By Tijan
Rating: 4 Glasses of Wine


Blurb:
Samantha and Mason are together. Everyone knows it. Not everyone is dealing with it. While Mason’s ready to give them the middle finger, there’s one not going away. Her mother. Threats are issued. Ultimatums are given. Even blackmail is used, but only Samantha can put a stop to Analise. However, when a trauma from her past is triggered, she may not have the courage or strength to do what’s needed. If she doesn’t, Mason’s future could be destroyed.

Our Review:

If you remember Fallen Crest High, it was a huge cluster fuck at the end and it left many readers, myself included, thinking....WHAT THE FUCK just happened??!??!  Well folks, Fallen Crest Family gave me the same WTF is going on thoughts. In Fallen Crest High, I fell in love with Logan, Sam got on my nerves and Mason's character was a smidge unrealistic for an 18 year old boy. Even though I loved it, Aly did not.... And Ash hasn't had the chance to read it yet. 

In FCF we learn a little more about why the kids are the way they are. Nate comes back and we learn about his relationship with Mason. Logan is still the fun loving, smart mouth little shit he was in FCH, but we see how vulnerable he can be when his "mask" is down. He also shows us how loyal he is to his family and those he loves.

Logan laughed to himself, "Happy Birthday Samantha. I love you. You're going to be my stepsister and maybe my sister-in-law someday, but until those days come, you already know you're family. And I think I can speak for everyone in saying, you're getting wasted tonight!"
He lifted his cake in the air. "Salute to Sam getting wasted!"

Sam is still "always in her head", and very dependent on Mason. However, we do finally learn WHY she is so fucked in the head and why her mom is a raging lunatic.

He murmured, "I have no idea what just happened, but you scared the shit out of me. You're going to have to tell me Sam. Sometime, you're going to have to tell me." 
But not today, not yet.

Sam runs A LOT, makes a new friend who has a past with the Kades, sometimes acts like A normal  17 year old and even has some sweet moments with Mason. One question though ladies.......who goes running for hours at a time to clear their head?? Seriously?!?!? Uh not this girl!!! I guess since they aren't old enough for wine, running will have to do!! Anyway, Adam and Becky are back in the picture and Mason shows that he is not always hard and closed off.

"I love you, Mason."
He pressed another kiss to my neck, then to my shoulder blade. " I love you too. Now go to sleep."

As you can see, there is so much happening in this book that it becomes a little overwhelming and the story lines can become confusing.  This book is not fluffy and sappy. It does not have a happy ever after ending. In fact, Tijan plans to write more of this story. Yes, there are some sex scenes that are HOT! Violence, emotional abuse and cursing are all present. There is also a pretty graphic flash into Sam's past that some readers may not like.

Tijan writes these characters like real life people. They aren't sugar coated and made to look perfect. I think that is one of the things I like most about her books and what draws me to her characters. I am very honored to have been able to read this book before its release and enjoyed reviewing it. I sit on pins and needles waiting for the next look into Mason, Sam and Logan's lives. Until then, this reader gives Fallen Crest Family by Tijan 4 glasses of white zin!

It's a competition where our favorite book boyfriends go head to head to see who will win the title of Ultimate New Adult Crush 2013! Sounds pretty bad ass huh? I mean what is sexier than some of the hottest fictional man meat out there competing against each other for bragging rights? I mean besides the obvious.... fictional men jello wrestling. That's a given of course. 

White Zin Bookend quickly decided to back, Team Kellan Kyle from the S.C. Stephens Thoughtless series. It was a no brainier really. I mean did you see the hotness above? Or how about the sexiness below...

Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren Review

Thursday, June 20, 2013

By Christina Lauren
Rating: 4 Glasses of Wine


Blurb:
An ambitious intern. A perfectionist executive. And a whole lot of name calling.
Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate—and completely irresistible. A Beautiful Bastard.
Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative—completely infuriating—creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules—or outright smash them—if it means he can have her. All over the office
As their appetites for one another increase to a breaking point, Bennett and Chloe must decide exactly what they’re willing to lose in order to win each other.

Our Review:


So, in between the Crossfire books I needed a break from crazy, stalker, control freak Gideon. And let me tell you, I totally picked the right book to read!

Beautiful Bastard was an easy read that I absolutely LOVED!!! It was steamy, romantic, funny and totally entertaining. There was a little of the back and forth about whether he loves me, he loves me not.... But it was not constant and it was not annoying.  You know what I mean?  When the guy's EVERY action makes the girl all weepy and convinced he doesn't love her? Anyone else get super annoyed by that like me??? Well don't worry, you won't find that here! 

I also really loved the fact that the characters didn't lose themselves half way through the story.  It always seems like when the man falls in love, he goes from being this tough guy to a pile of mush in 0.2 seconds. I HATE that.  Men, stay true to who you are!!!! She falls in love with the tough guy, not the quivering pile of jello!!!!  You think the fictional characters out there hear me? 

I digress......Lets get back to BB. 

Chloe and Bennett start out the novel at each others throats. And rightfully so.  As the name implies, Bennett is a total bastard. He's a controlling boss who makes Chloe's life at work miserable.  Lucky for him, she loves her job and is good at it and willing to tough it out.  I love a strong woman!!! 

"If only he would keep his mouth shut, he'd be perfect. A piece of duct tape would do the trick. I had some in my desk that I'd occasionally pull out and fondle, hoping someday I could put it to good use.” 

Late one night, Chloe is going over something for work with Bennett and the next thing you know.....BAM!!! Steamy Sex Scene!!!! 

"Who would have thought working for an angry jackass would result in my getting fucked up against a cold window at work and liking it?” 

This is just the beginning of a bunch of crazy sexcapades and from there, the story just gets better and better!!! 

If you are looking for a quick, entertaining read that is a stand alone, this is your book.  I can't wait to read the authors' next book, Beautiful Stranger (not the same characters).  Beautiful Bastard totally gets 4 glasses of white zin from this girl!!

That First Kiss by JC Valentine Review *Giveaway*

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

By J.C. Valentine
Rating: 4.5 Glasses of Wine


Blurb:
Mercurial and charming, Tate Larson is a rising author and playboy who has a different woman on his arm every night of the week. Focused on his work, Tate has no plans to settle down any time soon. That is until he meets his pretty new assistant, Piper Donovan.
Desperate to escape the promise of backwater living, Piper ditched her Alabama hometown and never looked back. That was almost two years ago. Now that she is out of a job and her bank account is running on fumes, she’s desperate to find a job, fast. She finds the break she is searching for when she lands a position at Bookish Temptations. A little dancing and a lot of drinks with the girls seem the perfect way to celebrate. After a brief but explosive encounter with a man she was never supposed to see again turns out to be the same man she will be bending over backwards to please, her every instinct tells her to run. But when running means leaving the life she has struggled so hard to create, Piper decides her only option is to continue working for the devastatingly sexy Tate Larson...even if it kills her.
Unable to deny their growing attraction, they struggle to keep their distance in a relationship that requires anything but


 ***Note to readers: This is a stand alone book, even though it is book 2 in a series. No Cliffhanger ending***

Our Review:
Once upon a time in a land far, far, away………wait a minute this book is about as far away from a fairytale as you can get! That is probably why I LOVED IT!

Piper Donovan is a good ole country girl with a quick whit and a whole lot of sass. 
Tate Larson is a playboy who is self absorbed, cocky, and a son of a bitch.  

Sparks fly when they first meet and mental fists fly the second time around. From the beginning of the book you can smell the arousal and cut the sexual tension with a knife.

“He kissed her until her legs quaked and her bones melted, and he stopped all too soon.”

"Ass. Hole. 'I brought you coffee and cake.' She was fuming. It was all she could think to throw it at him"
Piper is trying to make it on her own in Chicago after leaving her hometown of Alabama. Hurt once by a man, she vows to not let it happen again. Unfortunately she was not expecting the sexy Tate Larson to enter her life.  Surrounded by her girlfriends, her hot as sin boss Felix and his sexy little secretary Poppy, Piper must learn to “manage” Tate's high matienence demands.

Piper, one of the things I love about her character is how she dishes the attitude and snark right back.  She is strong willed and determined.  But lets face it, there is only SO much a girl can have thrown in her face before her armor starts to crack.  

Tate……what can I say about Tate besides HOT DAMN! This man is fine and he knows it. He is used to getting his way and having women fall at his feet. So it takes him completely by surprise when he starts having feelings for Piper.  He’s a M-A-N ladies, and he makes LOTS of mistakes throughout the book. Luckily he has some great people in his life who “kindly” show him the way.  

"You need to understand, I tried to resist you, just like I have been trying to resist you, but you drive me crazy. When I'm with you, it takes everything in me to stay away. All I think about, all I dream about is burying myself inside you."
“ I love you so damn much, and it scares the fucking shit out of me,” he confessed through gritted teeth as if admitting that had cost him dearly. “I know I’m an asshole, and I’m sure as hell not worthy of you, but if you give me a chance, ill spend the rest of my life trying to be.”
Throw in an ex named Casey, and a tall, dark and handsome chef from Puerto Rico named Tom, and you will laugh, cry, swoon and curse. 

Hold on tight and don’t let go! I can promise you it will be one hell of a ride but all the twists and turns and the feeling like your heart is going to burst right out of your chest is worth it in the end.  This reader gives J.C. Valentines That First Kiss 4.5 glasses of White Zin.

Interview with J.C. Valentine

Let's get down to the important stuff first. Are you a wine drinker? If so, what is your favorite type? If not, what is your poison? Coffee, Soda, Chocolate? All of the above?
JC: Goodness, no. My first taste of wine was memorable, to say the least. I usually prefer sweet tea, but lately I have been on a vanilla iced coffee kick. It’s so addicting! 

Ok now that we have that out of the way....Tell me a bit about yourself:
JC: I am a wife and a mother of three wonderful children, and the owner of far too many animals. I suffer a terrible addiction to sweet tea and will probably end up in a rehab one day for the growing book hoarding problem, as well. I also enjoy photography, and would love to one day travel the world capturing all kinds of beautiful memories, but my true passion is editing. I am currently attending university to obtain the degrees needed to become a professional book editor (This does not mean I am, in any way, very good at editing my own stories!).
Is there a particular book that changed or affected your life in a big way?
JC: Early in my own writing, I picked up the first book in the Vampire Huntress series, and was completely swept away by it. The characters were so complicated and deliciously formed, the plots ingenious, and I said, “I want to write like that!” I don’t think I have, or ever will, come close to its perfection, but I strive for it every day.

Ebook vs Physical book?
JC: Had you asked me this a few months ago, I would have said physical, but I am loving ebooks right now because I can highlight them and take notes and I never have to ruin the pages. I still buy my paperbacks, though—they look so pretty on my bookshelves! 

What has been your best moment as a writer?
JC: Hands down, the best moments are when someone comes to me privately and says how much they enjoyed my work. I am my own worst critic, so when someone outside of my circle (and my head) can say that what I did was great or inspiring, it feels especially amazing and wonderful and all that sappy stuff.
Do you see yourself in any of your characters?
Oh yes. I think I have imparted something of myself in all of my characters. Whether they are brainy, kooky, witty, self-absorbed, a little crazed or shy, it all came from the mind that knows it first-hand.

What are you reading right now?
JC: Right this minute? I am ashamed to say nothing. I have been absorbed in my own writing lately so my reading is a bit sporadic at the moment. But I did just finish Abbi Glines’ Forever Too Far.  It was great and I’ll miss Rush dearly.

How do you write your super steamy sex scenes? Do you have them in mind and write the story around them, or does the story naturally lead you into them?
JC: They happen naturally. I just write and let the characters tell me what they want to do and where.

Who would you cast as Tate and Piper in a That First Kiss movie? (Oh hell, I need a Tom too!!)
JC: LOL. Right now Alex Pettyfer is my go-to man for Tate and Mila Kunis for Piper. As for Tom, I am torn between Galen Gering (Rafe from Days of Our Lives) and Kevin Alejandro (Jesus from True Blood).

Is there a possibility that we will see more of hottie Tom in the future?
JC: Definitely, but I don’t think he will be getting his own book. More like cameos.

Who is your Book Boyfriend?
JC: I have so many! Let’s see…This week’s book boyfriend is Micha, from Jessica Sorensen’s Ella and Micha series. But my overall, backburner, forever boyfriend is Vishous from J.R. Ward’s BDB. ***EEEK! You have great taste. We love Vishous too***


Forever Too Far by Abbi Glines Review

Monday, June 17, 2013

By Abbi Glines
Rating: 4 Glasses of Wine


Book Blurb:
Rush promised her forever...
but promises can be broken.

Torn between his love for his family and his love for Blaire, Rush has to find a way to save one without losing the other. In the end one has to be more important. Letting go isn’t easy.

Blaire believed in her fairytale...
but no one can live in a fantasy.

Her love for Rush and desire to have a family keep her believing that they can find a way for this to work. Until she has to make the right decision for her and the baby. Even if it breaks her heart.

Can they find the forever that they both want or has it all just gone... too far?

Excuse me for a second...I'm still a little overwhelmed by the Country Club Sexy Squad (A.KA. Rush Finlay, Grant Carter, and Woods Kerrington) Holy Hell, those boys are scrumptious.

Rush and Blaire, oh what can I even say. To quote an extremely cheesy pick up line, "I hate to see you leave, but I love to read you go." Okay so maybe that isn't exactly how the line goes, but you get the idea.

I think Fall does the quick rundown of this book best...

So Blaire is insecure and Rush is oblivious to the world. Nannette is a bitch and will always be a bitch. We meet a sweet girl named Harlow and how can we not all love a girl named Harlow? Bethy is still a spaz even though we heart her! Woods makes an appearance (hot damn!) and we briefly meet Della. The best part of this book in my opinion......GRANT CARTER!!!! Talk about total swoon!! Dean Finlay makes an appearance and so does Kiro. Who doesn't love old ass rock stars (cough...not me!) Blaire and her daddy do some bonding and a new man is introduced into Blair's world. I mean the girl already has sex on legs Rush Finlay drooling over her what's one more guy?? I think Ms. Glines pretty much covers everything in this book. She does not disappoint once again! ~Fall

“I just stood there and looked up at Rush. When I’d first laid eyes on him I’d been awed at his beauty. Never had I thought that the moody playboy could have a heart the size of his underneath all that swagger. “What changed you? You’re so completely different than that guy I met back in June,” I said, smiling at his confused face.


Rush reached out and slipped his hand into my hair and tangled his fingers around the strands. “This sweet, determined, sexy-as-hell blonde walked into my life and gave me a reason to live.” 
This may have been the final installment in the Fallen Too Far series, and trust me I will miss Rush and Blaire, but grand-van-DAMN Abbi has set us up for some pretty awesome future books. And, I'm betting we will see plenty more of "Blush" (Yeah, I totally just gave them a couple name. You know you love it!!)

This book covers some of the time line from Twisted Perfection. It was fun to see those events from Rush and Blaire's perspectives, but it gave us just enough of Woods and Della to make us starved for Simple Perfection. Damn October is too far away! 

And Um...."Hello Grant!!!! How you doing?" *said in my best Joey Tribbiani accent*
Oh ladies, Abbi Glines is doing us ALL a favor by giving that man his own book! We don't even have a release date for that one yet. I might just die from the anticipation. 

And just to give y'all a little something to chew on...Nan and Captain book? You have to admit his appearance was pretty random. I'm thinking Abbi has future plans for him. Thoughts? 

This book has all the makings of a great story...drama, angst, romance, and plenty of hot sex. Fall and I really enjoyed this book, which is not surprising as Abbi Glines always delivers. If you liked Fallen Too Far and Never Too Far (Fallen Too Far #2) , you will love Forever Too Far!

Attention All Rock Chicks and Kristen Ashley Fangirls!

Saturday, June 15, 2013

Alright all you Kristen Ashley fanatics, we have an official title and release date for the much anticipated final book in the Rock Chick series. *cue the tears*




Ally and Ren's book will be titled Rock Chick Revolution and will be released on August 13, 2013....or approximately 2 months too far away. I NEED THIS BOOK NOW!

I absolutely lurve this series! Rock Chick Revolution is one of those books I'm dying to hurry the hell up and come out, but I'm terrified to start reading because I know it will eventually end. How am I supposed to say goodbye to "The Hot Bunch" and all the "Rock Chicks"? Don't even get me started on my attachment to Fortnum's and the ever "booming" Tex. I can't do it! I'm just not ready...but on the other hand, OH MY GAH! I can not wait to hear about these secrets Ally has been keeping. And how Mr. sex-on-a-stick Ren fits into all of the craziness that is sure to ensue.

Here is the announcement straight from Kristen Ashley's Facebook Page:

“ROCK CHICK REVOLUTION, the story of Ally and Ren, will be released on Tuesday, August 13. Two months and you’re back in Fortnum’s with the gang. And let me tell you, this book is all about Revolution. Ally is a firecracker, Ren is… well, YUM! I’m so excited about this finale. Writing it, I laughed myself sick, cried myself silly and even got up and danced around my Rock Chick Lair.”
“This book is self-pubbed so, alas, it isn’t available for pre-order. However, it WILL be available internationally AND in print on the release date of August 13, 2013. It is, indeed, the finale. But don’t despair, I revisit my characters often and hope to spin this off into (another) new series. See my website under the Titles section (www.kristenashley.net) for details. This includes some of my thoughts on Darius and Daisy.”
If you haven't read Kristen Ashley's Rock Chick series, you better get started NOW! This series is hilarious, sexy, and action packed. The Rock Chicks, are group of trouble making women who always seem to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Thankfully for them their over the top hott-bad ass-bossy-alpha male counterparts, always seem to be in the right place at the right time to save their asses.
