Awakening by Samantha Long Blog Tour and Giveaway!

Review:  4.5 stars

Lets see how should I start this review?! Hmm I got it now, Awakening is a must read! This book has all sorts of super natural creatures. Enough to quench any  paranormal enthusiast  thirst. I absolutely enjoyed the chemistry between Tristan and Sophie. Tristan would  do anything to protect Sophie which I admire. All the characters have a special bond  amongst one another. I really admired Sophie I cant stand weak  whinney female characters but Sophie was anything but that. She  remained strong throughout the book even after facing down demons. I have to say Samantha Long did a great job ending this first novel it ended with a cliffhanger but it wasn't so bad that I felt the need to hurl my  ereader against the wall. She gave the reader enough information to hold you over for the next installment. If I could give this book any critiqe at all it would be I wished it had a tad bit more adventure. Other then that I cant wait to read the next book in this series. I feel Samantha Long is a author we will be hearing much more about in the near future.

Excerpt:  Movement caught her gaze. Tristan stalked forward, his motions flowed, cat like.
She stood, frozen.  His eyes paralyzed her with their predatory gleam.  If this was a war, she’d lost weeks ago.
He stopped right in front of her.  Tempted her with his closeness.  He placed his hands on either side of her neck.
Warmth immediately permeated her body and her lips parted.  Blood thundered in her ears.
Then, his lips touched hers.  It wasn’t a sweet, I-missed-you kiss.  He pressed his body into hers, invading her senses, and poured all his pent up frustration into it.
A tear slipped down her cheek even as she kissed him back.  His hurt flowed into her.
She’d made him feel used.
Before she had time to process all of this, he pulled back.  Accusation shone in his eyes.  A low growl rumbled in his throat.  The animal in him prowled right underneath the surface.
It was time for the end battle.  No matter how this ended, it would be final.  They’d either make up or hate each other forever.

About The Author

I'm a multitasking mom of four.  When not writing/doing laundry/changing diapers, I like to catch up on episodes of Supernatural and Castle.  If you can't find me in front of the computer, I'm most likely watching my DVR.​

​I've been writing since the first grade, where I wrote a one page story titled "If I was an Indian".  My warrior husband was going to be the best hunter, I was going to live in the best teepee and apparently, I was having an affair with the Chief.  Racy, I know.

​Of the things I'm addicted to sweet tea, movies, and books top the list.  My favorite authors include Nora Roberts, Lauren Kate, Kresley Cole, and Gena Showalter.  Few of many I love. 

​Thanks so much for reading!

​Sam :)

Borderland Bride by Samantha Holt Review!

*We recieved a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*
*This was reviewed by our guest reviewer Lori*

Borderland Bride by Samantha Holt

This is the first book I've read by Samantha Holt and the first "medieval times" book. I wasn't sure how I would like it, but as I kept reading it, I loved it. Isabel is found by Jake beaten within inches of her life. Jake takes her back to his brother's villa to have her looked at by a doctor. Isabel is left deaf and mute from the beating with no idea if she will regain either sense. I fell in love with Jake just as quickly and easily as Isabel did. I loved how he took to her with such "love" even though he says that he will never love again do to pain from the past. The story is so romantic. I would love to read more of Samantha's writing.

Forbidden Forever by Christy Dilg Blog Tour!

Laney Collins has been married for 15 years to a man who she once upon a time thought was her pefect man. But now, her body is different after giving birth to 2 kids and aging and her husband has decided that he doesn't want her like that and continually berates her for it. He doesn't seem to care how much it kills her a little more every time he yells out an insult or that he is slowly but surely pushing her into someone else's arms. Fate brought Laney into Dr. Chance Turner's office to be his new assistant. He is also a married man, but not happily so, and every day the attraction between Laney and Chance escalates. One night things with Michael (Laney's husband) finally prove to be too much and she ends up at his door. It takes a lot of strength from both of them to get past all the craziness and let go of their respective marriages that are no longer what they used to be. I really hated Michael, he was awful, it made me glad that Laney was able to escape his grasp. Chance felt like he had to be with his wife because of what a night of passion brought them, but there was no love there, but he finds his heart in Laney. Chance is great for Laney and her kids, he truly loves and cares for them and does everything he can to show it. I'm looking forward to more from this author! 

"Let's do this. Get to know me away from here and then I will prove to you that we belong together, that I can be a great stepdad to Callie and Kaleb, and we can stop being miserable apart. I want to show you how much I care for you and treat you the way you should be treated. Remind you every day how amazing you are and how beautiful you are. I want you to see the beauty I see every day when you look into the mirror, to always know how perfect you are."

False Start by Lila Felix Cover Reveal!

Rex has firsthand knowledge of how love can rip a person to shreds. How it can swallow a person whole, leaving them gasping for air, and dying a lonely person. He watched his mother give everything she had to his father and then she died, too weak and frail to continue on. His father, the deranged man who could barely feed himself—taking care of him left a permanent crease on Rex's heart. He swears he can still hear his pleas for help in his sleep. Nothing can give him solace from the painful memories.

Except this girl.

Hayes is a constant and consistent optimist. She's witnessed her mother and father’s almost perfect marriage and taken it as an example of what she wants. But she can’t seem to find a guy who is sincere. She’s dated them all— snake-in-the-grass jerks, straight-up commitment-phobes, fakes and phonies alike. They all fit her perfect dream on the outside, but when the relationship gets to the nitty gritty, they all crumble like stale bread. 
Unable to find a better man, she settles for nothing instead, wondering if a man who treats her right could even exist. With perfect parents and a team name like I Kilda Girl, that man would have a lot to live up to.

Until this boy.

When she sees a rugged, tattooed guy who shows up at all the derby bouts, she wonders if chasing the bad boy might just be right.

Don't Look Back by Jennifer Armentrout Cover Reveal!

How cool is this cover?

Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all-popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.
Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it’s one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took “mean girl” to a whole new level, and it’s clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She’s getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she’s falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.
But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn’t just buried deep inside of Sam’s memory-someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?
