Book Spotlight: The Reaper's Sacrifice by Abigail Baker

The Reaper's Sacrifice (Deathmark #2) by Abigail Baker Date Released: June 27, 2016 Select Otherworld
About The Reaper's Sacrifice He bargained his soul for her safety…
It’s been two years since I tried to overthrow Death…
Now, all I have to show for it is a life in exile without my lover and personal Grim Reaper, Brent Hume. He bargained his soul for my safety. If I could get him back, I would, but I don’t don’t have the first idea how. So I live for the night when Reaper’s bring nightmares to the living—and Brent visits me in mine. Doesn’t make for a good night’s sleep, but I’ll take what little of him I can get.
When Death comes calling, sending me into an old foe’s camp as a spy, my inner rebel awakens once more. If I play my cards right, I might improve upon my growing Master Scrivener powers and finally free Brent so that we can be together for good. I know he’ll do anything to keep me safe—even if it means I’ll never see him again. And that scares the Hell out of me.

Review: The Reaper's Sacrifice by Abigail Baker (Deathmark #2)

Note: This ARC was provided by Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

Something in me stirred like it had before--the need to set things right, the need to make Styx better for everyone, not just the ones I loved. The rebel in me never really had died. She just needed some time off and a reason to come back to work. 
Oh, Abigail Baker, you are an evil, evil woman. First, you gave us a cliffhanger of an ending in The Reaper's Kiss. Then, you had us waiting for a month and a half shy of what would be a year-long wait for this sequel, The Reaper's Sacrifice, only to torment us by giving us a fantastic continuation of Olivia Dormier's story and then leave us hanging yet again with that heartbreaking, unresolved ending! Gah! But wait I must and will. Why? Because the Deathmark series is the kind that demands you attention and requires you to hang on for ride, even if it happens to be one that lasts over three full-length novels and over the span of a couple or so…

Review: His by Brenda Rothert

Note: This ARC was provided by InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review.

His is a standalone contemporary romance novel penned by author Brenda Rothert and has elements of suspense and mystery added to the mix. It has an interesting premise that involves twenty-eight-year-old Andrew Wentworth, both a young man who has made a name, a reputation, and a great deal of money on his expertise as well as having been born into a wealthy family, and Quinn Bradley, a twenty-one-year-old homeless girl who does whatever is necessary to keep both herself and her younger sister Bethy safe from either the natural or the unsavory elements on the streets of New York and to remain hidden from those who are after them. Andrew and Quinn's story is unconventional but it makes for a rather intriguing one.

A multimillionaire and a street rat may not seem to have a great deal in common, but from the moment Quinn agrees to spend one night with Andrew for $500 and they meet, Andrew's curiosity whe…

About Cleat Catcher What happens when an unrepentant Cleat Chaser meets the player of her dreams?

Excerpt Reveal: A Fine Mess by Kelly Siskind

In just a little over a month, the second novel in the Over the Top series from the amazing Kelly Siskind will be released, but if that seems too far away, worry not! I've got an excerpt that will hopefully quench your need for it to be August already. Take a peek at A Fine Mess:
A Fine Mess (Over the Top #2) by Kelly Siskind Release Date: 02 August 2016 Forever
An Excerpt from A Fine Mess Sawyer steps close and waits for me to make eye contact. Slowly, I lift my gaze to his gold-flecked brown eyes, but I can’t find my voice. It’s like I don’t know how to talk to him anymore.
He grins. “Hi.”
From my angle it’s easy to see the scar running down his neck, the remnant of a fall he took through a coffee table while wrestling with his brother. I’ve always wanted to touch it, feel the puckered skin under my fingers. I drop my gaze, but it doesn’t help. The cuffs of his gray button-down are rolled to his elbows, roped muscle exposed below. Something else I’d like to touch. 
I blink hard. “Hi,…

Book Spotlight: Mine to Have by Jade Sinner

Mine to Have (Claimed #1)
by Jade Sinner
Release Date: June 30, 2016
About Mine to Have Max... I didn't ask for any of it. I didn't want any of it. I had a life. A playboy reputation and money to burn. But then it happened...all the things I didn't want... Most of my family gone—taken by a distracted driver. My father's multi-billion-dollar conglomerate thrust upon me. And her, Lacy, my niece (sort of), in need of a guardian.
Here's the moral of this story (the only one): life doesn't give us what we want. Or does it?
Three years later...Lacy's an adult and right under my nose, almost literally. No longer a girl, she's a woman with sexy curves and a way of taking over my every thought. I know it isn't right—she calls me uncle—but then again...maybe it is time for life to give me what I want. After all, she was given to me. She's mine to have.
Note: These characters are not really related.
Warning: This is a fun, dirty book about forbidden love with a …

Review: Mine to Have by Jade Sinner (Claimed #1)

Note: This ARC was provided by InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review.
Jade Sinner appears to be on a roll this month, releasing three series starters, with the latest one being Mine to Have for the Claimed series. Based on the first two books I got to read from the author, I already knew what to expect and there's no question that giving readers quick, happily-ever-after, smutty stories is easy-peasy as far as Jade Sinner is concerned. Mine to Have gives us a fast read that has a taboo element to it, one that involves a nineteen-year-old college student named Lacy and her nearly thirty-year-old uncle named Max. Now, now. While Max is Lacy's guardian, he isn't actually a blood-related uncle. Blood-related or not, how they consummate their hidden and mutual lust for each other made for one hot read.

As always when it comes to short stories like this one, you know that you're going to get a guaranteed happily-ever-after. The lust part is a prerequisite for at lea…

Release Blitz: Stone by S. Nelson

Stone (Knights Corruption MC #2) by S. Nelson Release Date: June 29, 2016
About Stone I knew she was destined to be mine the first time I laid eyes on her. Cliché I know, but it was the truth. Numerous obstacles kept us apart, but I vowed to find a way around them, finally claiming her once and for all. 
Consequences be damned. 
Stone Crosswell, VP of the Knights Corruption MC, was known for his notoriously hot temper. While it served him well when dealing with their sworn enemy, the Savage Reapers, it damaged him in the eyes of the one woman who would redefine his very existence. 
His attraction toward her was fierce, his innate need to possess her consuming his every thought. 
But would his way of life eventually destroy her? 
Adelaide Reins was doing well for herself. Acquiring a coveted nursing position at the prestigious St. Joseph’s Hospital, she thought her life was going exactly as planned. Until the fateful day she was summoned to her uncle’s club, instantly drawn to the one man wh…
