'Til Death: Volume One by Bella Jewel Release Day Blitz with review

Title: 'Til Death: Volume One
Series: 'Til Death #1
Author: Bella Jewel
 Release Date: November 25, 2014


They say there's a fine line between love and hate.

There is.

I married a douchebag.

I didn't know it at the time.

He came in like a handsome stranger and blew me off my feet.

I fell madly in love, like the naive girl I am.

Then he left me high and dry.

Turns out, I was nothing more than a business plan for billionaire playboy, Marcus Tandem.

He needed to be married in order to obtain his grandfathers business, and I was the poor victim in his path.

I believed in what we had, until the truth reared its ugly head.

I never meant anything to Marcus. Not a damned thing.

With my world spinning on its axis, the girl I once was has long since died.

Instead he left me as this empty, emotionless shell.

I may have made a vow before God to love and cherish him ‘Til Death do we part, but it’s time for me to give back to Marcus, exactly what he gave me.

He has to pay.

And pay he will.

*This is part of a two book series and it will contain a HEA – Readers over 18+

After finishing Anguish and meeting the delicious Marcus we couldn't wait to get our hands on 'Til Death. Bella's writing is at a new level and each book she writes just keeps getting better.

“The man who came into my life like a hurricane and flipped my world on its axis. The man who I loved so deeply, he'll scare me in a way that's irreversible. He's the man who destroys lives, yet makes them beautiful all at the same time. My marcus will change your world, too. If you let him.”

When Marcus’ grandfather dies he never imagined that a man who disliked him so much would leave everything to him. His will throws his family in a tizz, everyone wants a piece of what the old coot had. Marcus had worked for his grandfather for ten years and still it surprised him that the company was left to only him. The only thing sitting in his way is a stipulation has been put in place leaving a very bad taste in his mouth. Can he follow his Grandfather's crazy plans? Or will he lose everything he has worked his entire life for?

Katia had a great mother, loving friends and a job she hated. Her boss was an ass, she worked long hours and never had a social life. So when she finally finds the time to catch up with her friends she never expects to meet the brick wall she collides with, Marcus, who has her lady parts on full alert. Only wanting a one night stand, Katia never expected she would have to try so hard to get rid of a man. But fighting off a man like Marcus is never a good idea, you can’t win!  So when he slowly make his way into her life by doing the kindest things, Katia is taken aback. She agrees to let herself believe that Marcus is it! He’s the one. A whirlwind engagement and marriage is perfect, Katia is in love. But there is something she feels is missing, something is wrong, can she figure out what is looming under the surface before their worlds come crashing down?

First off we have to say this is a cliffy but not a cliffy like you think. More of a Ohh...my… how could you leave us hanging like that BELLA!!!!! We want part 2, we need part 2. But in a good way. This book was fantastic! Our opinion of Marcus changed so many times in this book it was like whiplash. Hold on ladies, he’ll take you for one hell of a ride. We are desperate to get our hand on part 2 of this amazing series and can’t wait to see what’s coming next for Marcus and Katia.

Hold On Tight by Abbi Glines Review

hold on tight abbi glines.jpg
Hold on tight, Abbi Glines. Sea Breeze Series (book 8)


Six years ago, Dewayne Falco's life changed. He lost someone he never expected to lose. Resigned to punish himself for something he felt he could have prevented, he goes through life without getting too close to anyone.

What he didn't expect was for the girl across the street to move back home and remind him of what they both lost: Dewayne's younger brother Dustin. However, when a miniature version of Dustin opens the door to greet him, Dewayne realizes he might not have lost everything after all.

Sienna Roy loved Dustin Falco most of her life. He was the boy next door, the high school basketball star and her best friend. But when his life was cut short, she realized he left a part of himself behind.

Now, she's back in Sea Breeze, thankful to have a home for her and Dustin's son, but not sure if she can ever forgive the people across the street who abandoned her when she needed them the most — The Falcos.

Betrayal, lies, and forbidden attraction might end Dewayne and Sienna's story before it's even begun.


Hold on Tight Krit because Dewayne Falco may just knock you off the top book boyfriend spot! I devoured this book. It was sweet, sexy and heartbreaking. I even had a few tears while reading it.

Dewayne Falco lost someone, someone who is irreplaceable. How do you move on after you lose your brother? Especially when you feel like you’re partially to blame for his life ending. The loss has followed him six years later to where the book really takes off. Told in dual POV, past and present we learn how hard life has been for him since he lost his brother.
Known as the town playboy, sleeping around, never committing, its easy for him. He works and party’s. But when a girl from his past comes back, she is sure to change everything Dewayne thought he knew.

Sienna Roy had her life ripped away from her when the love of her life, Dustin Falco tragically died. She was sent away and never seen again by her family and friends. That is until 6 years later she returns to Sea Breeze, but not alone, she has her and Dustin's amazing little boy. Thinking that everyone in Sea Breeze has abandoned her, she’s apprehensive of her arrival. When she slowly introduces herself back into the Falco family her life is not what she expected.

The underlying chemistry that has always been there between Dewayne and Sienna is put to the test, they can’t be any more than they are, they’re practically family!  But when they start spending more time together and the bond between nephew and uncle develops Sienna can't help but remember how things were before everything changed. She had feelings for him, he had feelings for her, did she choose the wrong brother?

I want to say so much more about this book then I have already said too much but I really don’t want to spoil it for anyone. But what I will say is that this had a completely different feel than any of the other Sea Breeze series books. It felt more mature, more developed, and I guess it is. The characters aren’t in college, they are older than the past books. I know in the past I said that Krit’s book was my favorite but this would have to be a close second if not on par with it.

Abbi gave me all the feels with this book, I was evoking everything that both of these characters were going through. The heartache Sienna experienced, the unbelievable betrayal from her family and the love from the Falco’s. Dewayne’s hurt, his love for his nephew, and a bond with his family that is so beautiful. A great read!

STING by Jennifer Ryder ♥ COVER REVEAL

Title: STING (Spark, #4)
Author: Jennifer Ryder
Genre: Steamy Erotic Romance
Release Date: Early 2015
RYAN After two years undercover, Detective Ryan Clark is tasked to the job he’s been waiting for. Ryan, together with undercover operative, Mick Gallagher, could very well be the men responsible for bringing together the biggest drug bust in Australia’s history. The seemingly sleepy coastal town of Fremantle, has become a hotspot for a newly formed drug syndicate, which threatens to flood the market with high-grade coke through the ports. Settling into his new locale, scouting out the local haunts, Ryan finds himself coming back to the same coffee shop. The attraction to Blondie, the local barista, has him puzzled. He knows it’s not just one-sided. She’s trying to keep her distance. It only makes him want her more. WILLOW Willow Asher left it all behind. Not by choice. After two long years, she’s finally getting somewhere. Willow has a busy cafĂ© a stone’s throw from the beach. It’s her pride and joy, and her buxom business partner, Gabby, is the closest thing to family to speak of. Although Willow’s past still plagues her thoughts, she’s determined to one day have her happily ever after. Just not yet. What she doesn’t need is the complications of Mr Sexy-Brown-Eyes, who seems to be drinking more and more coffee. She doesn’t want the questions. She’s still trying to get her story straight.  
The curvy redhead behind the counter warmly greets everyone like their old friends, winking and smiling, her iridescent hot pink lipstick unmissable. Her silver nametag bears the name ‘Gabby’. “Well, it’s a good morning now,” the redhead says, her hazel eyes sizing me up when I move to the front of the line. She smirks, and readies her hand on the register. “What’ll it be, honey?” “Large flat white, thanks.” “That’s four dollars, please.” I pay, and she hands me my change, her hot pink fingernails grazing my outstretched palm. The redhead slides a piece of paper across the counter and a small hand from behind the machine takes it. Apart from the noise you wouldn’t even know someone was there with the cups piled high on top. A flash of messy blonde hair dashes out from behind the machine. “Is that take,” she says, and her jaw goes slack as her pretty eyes scan from my chest up to my face. “Huh?” I say, leaning in closer to the counter, taking in an eyeful of her petite body, golden tanned skin against the stark whiteness of her tank top. I don’t miss the growing blush that’s spreading across her freckled cheeks either. She shakes her head and briefly closes her eyes as she huffs out a breath. “Sorry, take-away?” “Nah, think I might stay?” I say and nod. Yep. Definitely staying. “Um, sure. Take a seat,” she says and turns to her colleague. “Gabs, can you give him a number?” “Oh, honey. I’ll give this one a number alright.” I chuckle, and take the number on a metal stand that she hands me. Blondie gives me a tickle of a smile and then returns behind the machine. I lazily wander to the only vacant chair in the corner, and wait impatiently for blondie to deliver my coffee. I’ve got a fuckin’ good feeling I’m gonna enjoy this assignment.

Saving Our Hearts by Velvet Reed Release Launch


** This series must be read in order from book 1. They are not stand alones. **
** This book is recommended for people over 18 years due to strong language and sexual content.**

When your whole world shatters and time stands still, recovery is never easy. Plans and dreams, ripped apart now seem impossible and finding a steady rhythm for your beating heart seems unattainable. 

Cole Tierney and Grace Rivers had a bright, uncomplicated future ahead of them, but the accident changed that. In the aftermath, there are wide reaching consequences, not only for Cole and Grace, but their loved ones too.

Only together can they battle to survive the impact. Is it enough for them to heal and fight for their future? 

With just one glimmer of hope before them, will a small miracle have the strength to save their hearts?





** This book is recommended for people over 18 years due to strong language and sexual content.**

Grace Rivers is your everyday twenty-five year old. She could have the world at her feet, but instead chooses to help run the family business. After experiencing great loss early in her life, Grace values what's most important: her family and friends. But she aches to find that certain someone—that one great, passionate love who values family as much as she does.

Cole Tierney loves his life. He has a wonderful family, a loyal best friend and a successful career as an ER doctor. The only downside is he wants someone to share it with. After being used and left heartbroken, he wants to find someone who will love him for him and not his or his family's status. 

"Every beat my heart makes is for you. Every time it beats faster it's because of you—because you're near me, because of your smile—because you take my breath away." 

Their two hearts collide by chance and an undeniable connection is quickly made.

But when others are plotting against their happiness, will their love flatline, or will the rhythm of their hearts continue to beat as one?
