✧ Cover Reveal ... Fallen Down Under by S.M. Phillips ✧

Fallen Down Under 

by: S.M. Phillips

 



Synopsis:



"Fuck." I slam my fist into the desk before me and feel nothing but rage. I need to go after her. I need to explain. "But isn't this what you wanted?" The voice inside my head whispers. "Isn't this a nice easy way out?"

Everything Max has done has always been at a cost to others around him. He wasn't about to make that mistake again. No longer will his selfish ways punish those close to him. Sometimes it's better to have had and lost than to never have had at all.

Finally after what felt like forever, Jess was getting a glimpse of control over her life again and allowed her defences to come crashing down, only to have what it guarded to be crushed once again. Now, on the other side of the world away from her friends, she doesn't know what to do.

Should she stay or should she go?

Is it too late or have they both fallen too far into something that is completely out of their depths?

Meet S.M. Phillips


Welcome to the crazy and hectic life that is me... A fun, loving mum of one special little boy, girlfriend (I'm sure it should be wife by now!!) and an overall crazy, happy go lucky girl from England.

I have always had a passion for reading and writing. Wherever I am, my book reader is never far behind along with a mug of coffee.

I found myself wanting to write from a young age, I have quite a few hidden stories on my computer somewhere, maybe I will have to dig them out and play around with them at some point.

I decided to make the very exciting but also very nerve wracking decision to release my debut 'Escape down under' at the end of 2013 when the ideas in my head got too strong and just wouldn't leave me alone.

Escape down under is now live and Fallen down under is due for release on November 2nd

✧ Blog Tour Stop & Review ... SASHA by Rae Matthews ✧










SASHA
Author: Rae Matthews
Series: Mixed Drinks, Book 1
Genre: Romance | Comedy | Drama
~ SYNOPSIS ~
When it comes to relationships, I have really bad luck. Each time I meet a guy, I cross my fingers and hope he is at least half way normal. I’m so tired of dealing with crybabies and freak shows that I could just scream. At this point, I’m so close to just joining a convent, taking the vow of chastity, and calling it quits with men entirely. Well, I probably don’t need to go to that extreme... I mean who am I kidding? There's no way could I be a nun. But becoming an old crotchety lady with 20 cats lurking around? Now THAT is a definite possibility. That was until I saw him, my brown-eyed stallion man, swooping in to save me from an unforeseen wrinkly old balls attack, and then... he is gone. Well, not gone completely, because I can’t stop fantasizing about him.

I fantasize about him so much that when I finally did see him again, I made a complete and total ass of myself. Several times in fact. How I did not drop dead of embarrassment right then and there is beyond me. 

So, remember I said I have really bad luck? Well, sit back, grab a glass of wine or your favorite mixed drink, and let me tell you how it all started, and how it all ends...

**I received an ARC for an honest review.**

This book is so freaking hilarious and SEXY too. I can not count the number of times that I actually laughed out loud. The main character Sasha is just too funny and prone to embarrassing herself. I gave the four stars just because at times the main character was a tad self centered a annoying, but she owned it and made up for it. She has a great personality and by the end of the book I did love her. Bash was pretty easy to love too. What a stand up guy! I will admit though that this "Emma" got on my nerves until the big reveal and when the meet and greet happened I was impressed by her ballsy move. I really enjoyed all of the characters in this book. They were all so funny and easily likable, well minus the few times that Sasha acted like a crazy brat, Betty's words not mine ;)

If you are looking for a quick, funny and sexy read then you she grab yourself a drink and get to know the characters in the Mixed Drinks Series.

✧ Cover Reveal ... The One by Kimberly Knight ✧


Synopsis 
Avery and Nicole's story.

Avery Scott is a hopeless romantic, the complete opposite of his best friend, Easton. For most of his life, he’s been searching for that someone special to spend the rest of his life with. The problem is, he’s had nothing but bad first dates with crazy women he’s met online or at his bar, Halo. When he hears about a singles cruise, his plan is to meet a lot of single women, to test the waters, but when a blonde consumes his every thought, he throws that plan overboard.

Nicole Chambers has had her fair share of heartbreaks. She’s tired of being single or dating guys with girlfriends. She wants to find The One. So she convinces her best friend, Brooke, to go on a singles cruise with her. What she doesn’t expect is to fall head over heels with the first guy she meets.

But what happens once the cruise ends? 

Life isn’t always fairytales and rainbows…

And meeting The One doesn’t always mean finding your happily ever after. Because life can give you a precious gift and then dangle it in front of your eyes and you’re left questioning where to go with your future—or if you even have one.

♦About the Author♦
tabby pic
About me? Huh well what can I say. I'm a twenty-nine-year-old stay at home mother of two beautiful girls and I have the opportunity to share my stories with you… My children are amazing. There isn’t a day that goes by that they don’t challenge my husband and I or make us laugh and feel loved. Growing up the way I did, I never wanted kids, but they’re here and I wouldn’t trade them for anything in the world for. God has truly blessed my family and me. My husband Bill is the levelheaded one; he’s always so calm and logical, whereas I'm the loud-mouthed spaz that doesn’t know when to shut up. He was my saving grace in a time when I really needed one. I honestly believe he is my gift from God. He’s everything I've ever wanted: smart, kind, loving, PATIENT, (lord knows he needs it living with me) and so very supportive! I'm a firm believer in going through life’s tragedies and blessings so that you can become the person you were meant to be. Writing has always been a hidden passion of mine and I am so thankful that I finally have the opportunity to share my stories with you.

✧ Release Day Blitz ... Stepbrother Dearest by Penelope Ward ✧





Stepbrother Dearest
By Penelope Ward
Release Date: September 29, 2014

Synopsis

You’re not supposed to want the one who torments you.

When my stepbrother, Elec, came to live with us my senior year, I wasn’t prepared for how much of a jerk he’d be.

I hated that he took it out on me because he didn’t want to be here.
I hated that he brought girls from our high school back to his room.
But what I hated the most was the unwanted way my body reacted to him.

At first, I thought all he had going for him were his rock-hard tattooed abs and chiseled face. Then, things started changing between us, and it all came to a head one night.

Just as quickly as he’d come into my life, he was gone back to California.

It had been years since I’d seen Elec.

When tragedy struck our family, I’d have to face him again.

And holy hell, the teenager who made me crazy was now a man that drove me insane.

I had a feeling my heart was about to get broken again.

Stepbrother Dearest is a standalone novel.

**Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+

...Interview with the Author...


What is your favorite part of writing a book? I think my favorite part is starting a fresh book, knowing there are endless possibilities of where I could take the story.

Who have been your favorite characters to write so far?  Elec in Stepbrother Dearest and Jake. They are very similar: witty, clever, sexy. 

What do you have planned next?  Jake Understood, the alternate pov/sequel to Jake Undone due in early 2015.

What is your favorite writing ritual? Going out to my yard and sitting on an Adirondack chair in the middle of the day when the neighborhood is quiet and getting some writing in…unless the neighbor’s dog starts barking a lot and ruins it!!

What gets you in the right writing mood? Wine. Especially for sex scenes.











5 or 5 STARS!!!

✬✬✬✬✬

*I received an ARC from the Author for an honest review.*

I LOVED this book!!! It is written about a topic that is mostly taboo for no real good reason. The title pretty much tells you everything you need to know...well mostly. 

So this book opens with Greta being nervous and excited about her new stepbrother coming to live with her, her mom and stepdad for the next year. She was excited because she never had a sibling and nervous because she new he and his father did not have a great relationship. She was not all prepared for who she would meet on that day.  She was determined to have a relationship with her new stepbrother only he wanted nothing to do with it. He was down right rude and mean to her only she just could stay away. That is what I loved about her character. She genuinely cared for him without even having a reason to. She wanted to get to know him and who he was and she made all the effort even when his was being an ass. 

Elec (by the way... I LOVE that name) is being forced to live with his estranged father, stepmother and stepsister who has been preprogrammed to hate and hate with a vengeance. He is down right ass when he first meets his new sibling. I wanted to hate him when he first arrived because he was just downright awful, but when that second encounter happened with him and Greta I knew that I would not hate him at all. I could not wait for the good stuff to happen. 

So the first half of the book takes place while Greta and Elec are both 17 but soon turn 18. We get to see how their relationship formed and also got see how their attraction to each other was undeniable. Eventually Elec opens up to Greta and they have such a strong connection. You can't help but fall in love with the both of them. Only, Elec does put Greta through some stuff and even though she should hate him she never does. I love that about her personality. Somethings happen and Elec has to leave to go and be with his mother, but he leaves behind a broken hearted Greta. 

Flash Forward Seven Year...the second half of the book. So Greta is in New York and gets some devastating news that is guaranteed to force her and Elec back into the same house. Only things have happened and neither of them is prepared for the feelings and emotions that will be drawn out. 

I loved this book. I loved the emotions, the wit and the overall whole feeling of this book. I can not forget the SEX...oh my the SEX...HOT!! I loved the characters personalities and the fact that they both brought out the best in each other. I love that Elec could only fully open up to Greta. This story is pretty great. It is well written with some pretty heavy stuff that comes out later. The characters are awesome and easy to fall in love with even Sully. I am definitely a huge fan of Penelope Ward's and I can not wait for more from her.

Synopsis
WARNING! This book is Dark erotica.
This book contains situations that some may find offensive. If you are sensitive to graphic violence read with caution.
This book also leads into a second book. You will get answers but the story will continue into a final instalment. You have been warned. Enjoy.

You meet someone. You date. You fall in love. You marry.
The four simple rules of love….
Wrong! I’m getting married but I’d never met him before now, never dated him, never fell in love. I have no access to the memories of the most magical time of anyone’s life.
My mind won’t allow me to evoke the past, I can’t remember those simple stages to lead me to the fourth .

I can’t comprehend why I would have ever wanted to marry someone like Dante. I should never have passed the first stage, although, I may have seen him through the eyes of the woman I once was, this me that lives, breathes here now, can’t understand how we made it to the next stage.
I’m not sure, without memories, how I know that this voice inside me, telling me I would never have chosen him, speaks some truth, I just know. He’s controlling, arrogant, callous and violent, and utterly hell bent on humiliating and degrading me – Like watching me falter, watching me struggle to comply and be the woman he asked to marry, powers him- as though he wants to break me piece by piece. Fiber by fiber. Until all that’s here is the shell he created from a soul that I once owned.

Now my memories are slowly returning. And they show me a completely different side to meeting him. Our dates, falling in love. The Dante haunting me in the shadows of my mind is loving, gentle and utterly enamored with me, nothing like the man with me now.
And this is what taunts me. My tender lover turned into a debauched, cruel sadist who is determined to consume my life, destroy my mind and murder my spirit.

I am, Star, and just like with some stars in the sky, the light you see is an echo, a fa├žade, I am already gone
I am a no one.
Especially to him. To him I am the dark in his desires, the corrupt in his depravity.
The sin in his immorality

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active... I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could of improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I'm not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I'm a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

You can find me on Facebook where i love interacting with my readers.
