Being Kalli by Rebecca Berto—Blog Tour!

Release Date: December 7, 2013
Publisher: Rebecca Berto
Series: Kalli #1
Characters: Kalli Perkins, Nate, Scout
Age Group: New Adult
Pages: 235
Format: Kindle
Source: Give Me Books bLOG
Buy the Book: Amazon

Synopsis: At nineteen, Kalli Perkins has never been in love and doesn’t ever intend to be. She has her issues handled. She’s managed to keep the secret of what happened to her nine years ago from her mother, although her mother’s usually high anyway and barely notices Kalli or her little brothers.

One night at a party, Kalli makes a bet with her friend, Nate, that could change everything. But she didn’t count on him. Nate’s very capable of satisfying her, not only under her clothes, but in her heart, too.

She just doesn’t know it yet.

My Review: This was not what I expected but kind of yes. Some parts I did expect, but then not really. Kalli and Nate have been very good friends for years, since they were kids actually. Nate and is not one of those guys you just hook up with. he's a relationship kinda guy. Kalli is one crazy, crazy chick. She's all for the thrill and my God she's such a hornball! She was raped as a child, by her mother's boyfriend at the time. Because of that she has this thing where she feels panicked when locked in a room alone with a man. So, basically she gets some sick thrill on having sex being almost caught. It's crazy! But Kalli is a very complex character and I love Berto for it. Even though she's this wild child and crazy party animal, she's very ... good. I don't know, it's strange, I guess. We all have ways of making ourselves de-stress and feel better and partying and fucking are her way. Her mother is addicted to drugs and drinks all the time. She's the one who's always looking afer her twin baby brothers and also her mother.(Her mother was a whole other huge case.) She's just a good person, sure she has her pretty big flaws, but really Ithink it's just her wayof coping with everything.
Nate is an all around great guy. From the beginning they have this huge chemistry that's so palpable. Kalli is not used to this. She's used to just fucking and being thrilled by sex and exposure and all tose wild, naughty things, but with Nate it's different. At first she's just blocking out the way she feels, because it's different and she's afaraid of acknowledging it all and worse, acting on it. Things get pretty steamy between them and Nate wants more, but she treats it like some mindless hook-up and that's when things gets sticky.
I adored Nate because he was just an awesome guy and he was good andit was so cute how he got so embarrassed and mortified whenever Kalli was blunt about sex. But then really, he has his wild side as well and he'sjust the perfect guy for Kalli.

Over It by Sarah Billington

Release Date: November 18, 2013
Publisher: Indie Inked
Series: The Kiss Off #2
Characters: Poppy, Ty
Age Group: Mature
Pages: 270
Format: Kindle
Source: YA Reads
Buy the Book: Amazon

Synopsis: Warning: Sexual References, occasional coarse language.

Teen Youtube song writing sensation Poppy Douglas's lead singer boyfriend Ty's been criss-crossing the country and living it up on tour for months while Poppy has been stuck in the boring suburbs, finishing out the school year.

But it's Summer now, and the best thing just happened: Poppy's royalties for writing the hit song The Kiss Off just came in. She's minted, and she knows just what she's going to blow it on.

Ty's band Academy of Lies are headlining a summer music festival, and Poppy is taking her girlfriends along for the best weekend of their lives. It's all organized: the weekend is going to be full of camping under the stars, backstage passes, VIP rooms and partying like rock stars, not to mention some long awaited one-on-one time with America's favorite front man.

Except, when someone drops out of the trip and Poppy takes the opportunity to mend a broken friendship, it doesn't quite go according to plan. And when she meets her boyfriend's BFF from another band, the paparazzi form their own totally wrong conclusions. There's also the matter of Ty's 'super fan' stalker, but the less said about her the better.

The biggest test of all comes in the form of an opportunity too good to pass up. But will insecurities and jealousy stand in Poppy's way? Can Poppy and Ty's relationship even survive it?

Life is about to get much more complicated for Poppy Douglas, but what can you expect when your boyfriend is a rock star?

My Review: First I want to say that I was supposed to post this as part of the Blog Tour last week. Unfortunately my computer had some dumbass glitch and it has been impossible for me to post it until now. I want to apologize to everyone that organized the tour and the author because I missed my date. I never do this, it's never happened before and I honestly feel terrible to let everyone down!
Again, I'm really sorry, but well... here is my review.
Okay, so I read The Kiss Off and I loved it. This sequel is just the freaking perfect sequel! I loved it sooo much! It was so fun and such a crazy ride. A lot of action; paps, catfights, breakups and all sorts of emotional wreckage. Also, it was a complete surprise for me that Poppy took Nikki! Then she has to take her cousin as a chaperon, ugh uncool. I love Poppy. Seriously, this girl is just the best, I swear she's my idol! No, she's not perfect, far from it. She makes a lot of mistakes, she can be selfish, and just completely irrational, but I loved that I feel like she could be me, or my best friend. A real person who makes rash decisions and can be blinded by jealousy or other things. I also love her attitude. Anyway, so yes you should totally read this because it is so good! It's great!

Flirting with Chaos by Kenya Wright—Cover Reveal!


Release Date: November 19, 2013
Genre: New Adult Rock Star Erotic Romance
Publisher: Omnific Publishing

Can two mentally unstable best friends have sex and not drown in chaos?
Rain's been washing blood off her hands for far too long. After five years, she accepts the fact that she"s still a little crazy but feels as if she's finally gotten it all under control.
Parties, drugs, and sex flood Jude's life, and music and scandal run through his veins. He's the son of a rock god and grandson of a jazz legend. It's no surprise that his own star is on the rise, and with so many groupies vying for his attention, his childhood best friend Rain keeps him anchored in reality.
She's nothing like him--an art student with no idea of her own beauty, who would rather curl up with a sci-fi novel than party in the spotlight. Everything changes when she asks him for a unique favor: she wants him to take her virginity. He's more than willing to oblige, but things get complicated when his pervy father gets involved. Meanwhile, intense feelings rise to the surface, ones neither Rain nor Jude are prepared to deal with.
If their relationship has any chance for survival, she must finally confront the demons of her past, and he must face the addictions of the present. When the smoke clears, will they find that sex between best friends was a good idea, or will they discover they had been Flirting With Chaos the entire time?


Everyone jumped and swayed fast, pumped and wound their bodies around the dance floor. Jude and I continued rocking into each other. We were entangled into the moment—the song, the feel of our bodies, the heat radiating between us, our scents mingling together, and the mounting of an orgasm that sparked at my center and rose higher and higher, just yearning to detonate into sensual delight.

Cinderella Screwed Me Over by Cindi Madsen—Blog Tour!

Release Date: October 22, 2013
Publisher: Entangled: 
Series: N/A
Genre: Romance
Characters: Darby Quinn, Jake
Pages: 400
Format: eBook
Source: Publisher
Buy the Book: Amazon

Synopsis: Darby Quinn has a bone to pick with Cinderella. Burned one too many times by ex-boyfriends, Darby has lost all belief in the happily-ever-after that the fairy-tale princess promised her. She's sworn off love, Prince Charmings, and happy endings and she's happy about it. Really. Or at least she was…until she met Jake, her gorgeous neighbor and the manager of her favorite restaurant. But Darby has rules about dating, ones she's culled from her years spent with so-called “princes,” and starting something with Jake would break all of them.

Charming, fun, and unwilling to give up on her, Jake doesn’t fit any of the profiles Darby has created from her case studies of ex-princes-gone-bad. Finally presented with her own Prince Charming, can Darby take a chance on a happily-ever-after?

Full of wit and sarcastic humor, Cinderella Screwed Me Over proves that sometimes the perfect love, like a perfect pair of shoes, is just within your grasp.


Cindi Madsen sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children. She is the YA author of DEMONS OF THE SUN & ALL THE BROKEN PIECES, and the adult author of FALLING FOR HER FIANCE, ACT LIKE YOU LOVE ME and CINDERELLA SCREWED ME OVER.

 Jake put his arm over the back of the couch. His fingers grazed my shoulder, then
he twisted them in the ends of my hair, sending a tingly sensation along my scalp “Nope.
Just had some experience with stuff like this before.”

“You think you’ve got women all figured out, then, do you?” I asked.

Jake shook his head. “No way. Every time you think you do, they change the rules on you. Like they could love the way you were yesterday and hate it the next day.”

“Every now and then, we change our minds. It’s our prerogative. The big secret is”—I leaned in conspiratorially—“sometimes, even we don’t know why. There are times after we pick a fight where we’re as confused as you are. But there’s no way we’re admitting it.” I shrugged a shoulder. “That’s why we have boobs.”

Jake’s eyebrows shot up.

“See, after we’ve acted crazy, and the guy’s wondering what he’s doing with us, we use them to mesmerize him, so he forgets that we’re crazy.” I shot Jake my most seductive smile and leaned the assets in question against his arm. “And by the way, if you look at my cleavage right now, even though I’m the one talking about it, I’ll accuse you of not caring about what I say and of just treating me like an object.”

Jake swallowed hard, keeping eye contact with me, though I could tell he was fighting his impulse to look down. A mischievous glint flickered through his eyes. “And treating you like an object would be bad?”

“It depends on how big a deal you make about how smart, funny, talented, etcetera, etcetera I am first.”

Jake slid his hand behind my neck and swept his thumb along my jaw. “Have I told you how smart, funny, talented, and etcetera I think you are?”

“You think I’m going to fall for that when I just fed you the lines?” Before he could answer, I kissed him.

Using his hand on my neck, he pulled me closer, forcing my lips open with his tongue. His other hand slid up my thigh, and even through jeans, my skin burned from his touch.

Ta-da! Go READ. IT. I promise it's so freaking good and cute!

My Date From Hell by Tellulah Darling—Blog Tour!

Title: My Ex From Hell
Author: Tellulah Darling
Series: Blooming Goddess #1 Release date: Oct 31
Publisher: Te Da Media
Age Group: Young Adult
Genre: Romantic comedy/Greek mythology
Buy the Book: Amazon
Book Description:
Sixteen-year-old Sophie Bloom wishes she'd been taught the following:

a) Bad boy's presence (TrOuBlE) + teen girl's brain (DraMa) = TrAuMa (Highly unstable and very volatile.)
b) The Genus Greekulum Godissimus is notable for three traits: 1) awesome abilities, 2) grudges, and 3) hook-ups, break-ups, and in-fighting that puts cable to shame.

Prior to the Halloween dance, Sophie figures her worst problems involve adolescent theatrics, bitchy teen yoga girls, and being on probation at her boarding school for mouthy behaviour. Then she meets bad boy Kai and gets the kiss that rocks her world.


This breath stealing lip lock reawakens Sophie's true identity: Persephone, Goddess of Spring. She's key to saving humanity in the war between the Underworld and Olympus, target numero uno of Hades and Zeus, and totally screwed.

Plus there's also the little issue that Sophie's last memory as Persephone was just before someone tried to murder her.

Big picture: master her powers, get her memories back, defeat Persephone's would be assassin, and save the world. Also, sneak into the Underworld to retrieve stolen property, battle the minions of Hades and Zeus, outwit psycho nymphs, slay a dragon, rescue a classmate, keep from getting her butt expelled from the one place designed to keep her safe ...

... and stop kissing Kai, Prince of the Underworld.

My Ex From Hell is a YA romantic comedy/Greek mythology smackdown. Love meets comedy with a whole lot of sass in book 1 of this teen fantasy romance series. Compared to Kai and Sophie, Romeo and Juliet had it easy.

My Review: I am a total fan of Greek mythology so of course I was instantly attracted to reading this. And I'm glad I gave it a read. So, it turns out that Sophie is Persephone. CRAZY.
And the new hottie? Kai? Um, yeah he's Prince of the Underworld. Talk about falling for the bad boy. This story is full of fun twists and adventures and so many laughs. It was hilarious! It's cute, but it has action. It's cool with some edge and I looved Sophie!
I definitely recommend you don't miss out on this one! :)

Series: Redeemer #1
Characters: Brandon Wilson, Claire Peters
Age Group: New Adult
Pages: 310
Format: epub
Source: AToMR Tours

Brandon Wilson is trouble. 

As leader of the largest car theft ring in Atlanta, GA, life is coming at him faster than he can handle. While the criminal world views him at the top of his game, the truth is, he’s breaking apart, piece by piece. He’s not sure how much more he can take before he completely shatters.

He’s able to manage this facade until he meets Claire Peters. As a part of a kidnapping scheme gone bad, she’s literally delivered right to his warehouse door. As his love for her grows, Brandon finds himself caught in an impossible dilemma. With his lifestyle, he knows he can’t keep Claire, and yet, he can’t risk letting her go, either. His men think he should make her disappear forever, but she’s his angel who still believes in second chances.

Can someone be so lost they’re beyond saving? And if salvation is possible, how does Claire show him the way?

Can a thief be redeemed?

My Review: This book was pretty good. I wasn't very sure what to expect but Brandon really is a criminal. Not watered down, he just is. Then Claire is just so sweet, but she's witty, you know? She has spunk, so she's not like defenseless and under Brandon's paw, no. I loved their banter and their chemistry, they just fit somehow. The dynamic between them was fantastic and the story has very unexpected turn of events that at a first impression left me doubting but they just fit with them. The circumstances, the scene. Very well thought out and interesting.

Fighting Fate by Linda Kage—Blog Tour!

Release Date: July 18, 2013
Publisher: Omnific Publishing
Series: Granton University #1
Characters: Paige Zukowski, Logan Xander 
Age Group: New Adult
Pages: 286
Format: Kindle
Source: AToMR Tours (For blog tour schedule click the banner)
Buy the Book: Amazon

Synopsis: Forgiving your brother's murderer may be noble, but falling in love with him borders on betrayal.

When Paige Zukowski enrolls at Granton University in honor of her dead brother, she has no idea fate will land her on the same campus with the very guy who killed him. But Logan Xander isn't quite the murderer she's always believed him to be.

A day hasn't passed since the tragedy that Logan doesn't wish he could go back and undo everything. It doesn't take Paige long to realize he's suffered as much as she has. Forgiving him for ruining her life might not be so impossible after all. But when she actually starts to like him and realizes he likes her in return, their true anguish begins.

My Review: AH-MAZING. It brought so many surprises. I mean can we talk about how Logan kills her [Paige's] brother? I don't think I've ever read a more heart-wrenching story. Seriously, I'd barely gotten to 50% of the book and I'd cried three times. It was so emotional and so very, very real. I love how it wasn't just this, "Oh okay, I forgive you." No. It took a process. A healing process. An acceptance proccess. For both Paige and Logan. It was emotional and so many things were sooo very unexpected. I'm trying to hold it all in and not speak of spoilers, but the feels are huge so I think I'll make a vlog later to properly express all my feels and speak uncensored.
This is like a total tiny spoiler, kind of, because really I'm gonna be very vague, but... the forgiveness scene. Like open forgiveness. Beautiful. I wailed like a baby. It was so tender, so amazing and beautiful and perfect. And dear Christ, Logan isjust so incredible. It's all very sad. I wanna weep again just thinking about it all! Gah I'm gonna read this again soon.
I think I have a discovered a new great author. Yes! So looking forward ro reading more of her works.

Entangled Embrace—Interview with Jus + Teaser of Ruined... OMG it's a Launch Party!

Buy the Book: Amazon | Barnes and Noble
Synopsis: Hell is looking for a way to break loose…

Jax lost the genetic lottery. Descended from Cain, the world's first murderer, he's plagued by a curse that demands violence in exchange for his happiness. He left everything behind, including the girl he loved, but thriving on the pain of others is lonely… And it's killing him.

After a series of heartbreaking losses, Samantha put rubber to pavement and headed for college as fast as her clunker could carry her. But she can't outrun her problems. When an attack at school drives her back home, she's thrown into the path of a past—and a guy—she's been trying to forget.

Sam strains Jax's control over his darkness, but running isn't an option this time. Someone—or, something—followed her home from school: a ruthless monster with a twisted plan centuries in the making. Forced together to survive, and fighting an attraction that could destroy them both, Jax and Sam must stop a killer bent on revenge.

Interview with Jus:

CB: When was the first time you said, "This is what I want to do! This [writing] is my thing."

Jus: Growing up I was always going to be either a writer or a chef, but I think the moment came right before I was set to start classes at the C.I.A. It was a spot decision and I haven't regretted it once :P

CB: What's your favorite ice cream topping?

Jus: Hot fudge. But not the kind that gets all clumpy or hard as it cools. Friendly's is my fave.

CB: When you think up a new idea for a novel how long does it usually take you to decide if you want to start writing it or it'll be discarded?

Jus: It varies. Sometimes I'll get 50% through, sometimes it's only a few chapters. Sometimes, like with Ruined, I'll get 50% though, then put it aside with the intention to toss it, but go back later on. I have sooooo many started books on my computer. It's a little scary.

CB: What place in the world would you really love to visit that you have not, yet?

Jus: I would love to see Italy or Ireland. But, sadly, I'm terrified to fly :D

CB: If I asked you to describe RUINED in three words, which would you say?

Jus: Sexy, dark, and different.

Awwww! I wanna thank Jus for always being so awesome and because she's answered questions for me before and she's always eager for everything and for having awesome books :)

So for my stop, besides the interview, I was going to review this awesome-looking book for you guys, unfortunately the galley was not prepared in time, BUT I have something really cool and that you'll appreciate as much or maybe even more... it's a teaser!. Enjoy! :)

“Hey, I’m just saying… Putting yourself alone with the sexier brother is just plain cruel. It's like dangling a juicy carrot in front of a starving horse.”

"Did—did you just refer to yourself as a carrot?"

"I think the better question would be, did I just refer to you as a starving horse…"

Synopsis: Her theory of attraction is about to get a new angle.

Spring Honeycutt wants two things: to ace her sustainable living thesis and to save the environment. Both seem hopelessly unobtainable until her college professor suggests that with a new angle, her paper could be published. Spring swears she’ll do whatever it takes to ensure that happens.

“Whatever it takes,” however, means forming a partnership with the very hot, very privileged, very conceited Henry Knightly.

Henry is Spring's only hope at publication, but he's also the ├╝ber-rich son of a land developer and cash-strapped Spring’s polar opposite. Too bad she can't help being attracted to the way he pushes her buttons, both politically and physically.  As they work on her thesis, Spring finds there's more to Henry than his old money and argyle sweaters…but can she drop the loud-and-proud act long enough to let him in? Suddenly, choosing between what she wants and what she needs puts Spring at odds with everything she believes in.

Definitely, Maybe in Love is a modern take on Pride and Prejudice that proves true love is worth risking a little pride.

Synopsis: It’s hard not to answer when trouble comes knocking

A girl who can’t forget…

Twenty-two-year-old Lucy Carver is like Sherlock Holmes in ballet flats, but her eidetic memory is more albatross than asset, and something she usually keeps hidden. When she notices that something’s amiss at her dead-end job, she jumps at the chance to finally use her ability for good. That is, until, a man is murdered, and she becomes the target of the killer.

A detective on his first case…

Detective Eli Reyes is overbearing, pompous, way too hot for Lucy’s own good, and seems as determined to ruin her relationship with her boyfriend, John, as finding the murderer. He brings Lucy in on the case, thinking she can help him get to the truth, only to cut her loose when he realizes he’s gotten far more than he ever bargained for.

A past that won’t go away…

When memories from her childhood invade her present, Lucy discovers a mystery bigger than she could have imagined. With the killer still after her, and Eli nowhere to be found, she takes things into her own hands, determined to expose the truth no matter what—before trouble comes knocking…again.

Unfortunately, the people who own her student loans still want to be paid for the years they supported her medical dreams. Mary lives on a steady diet of coffee and chocolate and believes, like Eleanor Roosevelt, that people should believe in the beauty of their dreams. She also believes people should ignore the word should because really, it’s kind of a judgmental word. Mary dreams of one day living as a full-time, well paid novelist (hint, hint) and also of one day traveling to Chile to pay homage to her soul mate, Pablo Neruda.

However, when she meets Adam, she’s drawn to him in a way even she can’t deny. He is dark and brooding and strangely charming. He’s the perfect distraction from the mundane life she’s created for herself. And, as if fate is pushing them together, he seems to be around every corner. It’s enough to almost make her entirely forget about her past and take a chance.

Unfortunately, Adam’s memory isn’t hazy . . . not in the least. And, what she doesn’t remember, he can’t forget.

Synopsis: Inspired by true events...

The first day of college gives every girl a chance to reinvent herself.

I go and screw mine up by meeting the most gorgeous guy I've seen in five years while talking to my cat.

But Andrew Crowner is far from judgmental. By the end of our interaction, he has me smitten by his easy manner and kind smile. And from the way his eyes linger on me before he leaves, I start to think that maybe I've caught his attention, too.

I let myself believe that luck may finally be on my side. That is, until I stumble on my roommate, and her overnight guest: Spencer Ashford.

Lean, tattooed, and sexy as sin, Spencer is exactly the type I need to avoid. I would have no trouble with that... were it not for his swift and inexplicable interest in me.

Suddenly, I go from a girl with next-to-no experience with boys to one caught in the cross-hairs of two completely different men.

Andrew's interest is wholesome and sweet. Spencer's is edgy and raw. My choice should be easy. But there are always complications, and sometimes, matters of the heart take the least expected turns.

My Review: What a beautiful story! From the beginning it's amazing and it's so heart-wrenching. I squealed and cried and oohed and aahed incessantly! Scarlett captures a first love fabulously well and I loved how her writing just flowed everywhere, it was natural, I could lose myself and forget I was reading–I felt there. The characters were so real, so solid, the story so genuine, I felt it all just come alive and leave me wanting more! I'm so excited to have found this new author, I just know I'll love her other works if they're as awesome as this one!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:   I’m Scarlett Edwards.  I wrote my first book as a college sophomore.  After six months of edits, it made its debut as Yours to Savor.
That was at the start of 2013.  I've written more books since then.  You can find them all here.
It’s funny how quickly life changes.  I used to think I’d need a degree to get a “Real Job.”  Then I wrote a few books, they got somewhat popular, and now I’m living the life as a full-time romance author.
Thanks to all my readers for making my dream come true.
