Playing dirty can be the best kind of fun…

Chloe Franklin wouldn’t call herself a commitment-phobe, so much as she’s allergic to anything long term. She loves the sexy, sweaty, and intensely hot hours of the night that come before the sun rises, though. Especially when those nights are spent with Search-and-Rescuer Gage McGraw...

Gage loves his job, but there is one thing he’s starting to like more than the rush of a mission—a stacked blonde with a mouth that haunts his dreams. Every time he steps foot in the sleepy town of Beaufort, he hooks up with Chloe. But he’s tired of hooks-ups. He wants more.

Just the sight of Gage gets Chloe's blood going. Hot, bothered, and finally naked, she’s ready for their night to start. But before he takes her, he whispers what his intentions really are…and then the games really begin.

Entangled Teen's Sci-fi Sale - Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout is FREE!

Hey everyone!

I have some pretty amazing news for you all. The hugely popular Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout is being released by Entangled Teen on December 1st. Exciting right? but wait there's more....

Obsidian (Lux #1) is FREE!

That's right, from November 2nd - 29th Obsidian will be completely free for readers. 

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring… until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something… unexpected happens. 

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. 

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

Cover Reveal: Solider by Julie Kagawa

The Solider cover is here yaaaayy...


A fighter dedicated to saving humankind from dragons in strictest secrecy.

That was what Garret Xavier Sebastian thought he was part of as a soldier of the Order of St. George. What he learned from a fiery dragon hatchling twisted all he believed in and set him on a collision course with certain death-but not without a chance to put things right.

Betrayed and on the run again, Ember and rogue dragon Riley discover an unthinkable truth about Talon and St. George. They'll need Garret's skills and insider knowledge of the Order to negotiate an impossible deal-and if they fail, there will be no way to stop all-out war.


Julie Kagawa is a goddess, I'm always able to instantly connect with all of her characters, I adore her books and her writing-- there's always a gorgeous romance at the centre, all of her male leads are of the swoony variety and all are on my book boyfriends list *no shame*..... safe to say I'm obsessed.

But anyway it's all about dragons, so just read it!

So what better way to celebrate the third book in the Talon series than having it centred around Garret, aka the above mentioned swoony lead, aka my boyfriend, sorry ladies.

This series is full of love, betrayal, jealously, angst and so much action and adventure, to me it was the perfect combination of everything.

After the heartbreaking cliffhanger during Rogue, I am more than ready to dive back into this series and to find out what my darling characters have been up to--mischief I'm guessing. The synopsis promises more action, adventure and no doubt more conflict and betrayals between between characters but mostly importantly it's all about Garret. He's just everything, the forbidden romance between him the dragon hunter and Ember the dragon was at an all time high in Rogue, I was so frustrated with their actions but secretly loving all the angst. I'm thrilled that the release late was changed to April instead of August, if only all of my future books were released early *sigh*. 

It better be good, Kagawa has come explaining to do after breaking my poor heart!

"A flame that burns twice as bright lasts half as long."
This is another gorgeous cover, it's different from the others but I still love it!

It's released April 26th 2016, so get this on your TBR shelves now..

Book Blitz & Giveaway! All The Way To Heaven by Becky Doughty

All The Way To Heaven Book Blitz!

Author: Becky Doughty
Series: The Fallout Series #1
Publisher: Clean Teen Publishing
Publication date: November 2nd 2015
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Anica Tomlin, business major, has just learned that the man she’s been planning her future around, her Global Finance professor, already has a beautiful wife and family. Ani cashes in her graduation gift to herself a little early—a trip to Tuscany—but from the moment she boards the wrong train in Pisa, her plans for solitude and self-indulgence begin to unravel around her.
When a bicycle accident thrusts Ani into the skilled hands of the dashing Dr. Cosimo Lazzaro, she reluctantly accepts his invitation to recover in his family’s country villa, perched on a hilltop surrounded by the Lazzaro olive groves. But it’s been a black year for olive growers all over Italy, and generations of tradition are being put to the test like never before.
Ani is swept up in the drama of life in Tuscany, the convergence of old and new, and the passions that drive people to pursue the desires of their hearts. Just as Ani begins to get her feet under her again, an unexpected turn of events leaves her doubting the very existence of happily-ever-after, unless she can learn to trust the desires of her own heart.
Although All the Way to Heaven is a stand-alone novel, it is the first book in The Fallout Series, a collection of sweet contemporary romances that follow characters featured in the first book.


Seven AM in Lucca, and the quaint medieval town was teeming with life, fueled by a caffeine-and-Mediterranean-air-induced high. Bicycle bells jingle-jangled, and boisterous greetings volleyed from one side of the narrow streets to the other. School children laughed and called out to comrades as they scurried off to class.
“Why is everyone so happy?” I pulled a lumpy pillow over my head, but I could find no entry back into the anesthetizing arms of sleep.
My first morning in this enchanted place, and I felt more like a forgotten princess in a tower than a girl on a much-anticipated trip to Italy.
I hadn’t expected to fall asleep right away, but after a hot shower and a bowl of the packaged soup my mom had slipped into my luggage before they drove me to the airport, fatigue settled its heavy cloak around my shoulders. Crawling between the crisp sheets that smelled of bleach and lavender, I was disquieted by the unfamiliar stillness of a town that collectively slept at night. My world was round-the-clock, where the freeway slowed, but never stopped, businesses stayed open twenty-four hours a day, and people lived in shifts, as though afraid the earth might cease turning on its axis the moment no one was looking. But sleep, I did, like a stone, in spite of the tears that made it impossible to breathe through my nose.
Morning, however, had arrived with a vengeance, the stillness before dawn exploding into a cacophony of sound as unfamiliar to me as last night’s stillness. Cobbled streets bordered by tall, ancient stone buildings made shouts and laughter echo and reverberate, each sound amplified. Everything felt so close, but no one here seemed to mind. Like an orchestra tuning its instruments before a performance, each noise outside the window was finding its perfect pitch in the symphony entitled, “A Day in the Life of Lucca.”
