Release Day Blitz- The Prisoner by Rachael Wade @rachaelwade




The Prisoner by Rachael Wade

Series: The Replacement #1.5

Genres: Contemporary, New Adult

Release date: July 26th



The Replacement will be free 1 day only on release day!


My name is Christian Walker, and Elise Duchamp is my drug of choice.

No matter how hard I try to break the habit, it’s a lost cause. Okay, maybe I haven’t really tried to quit this particular habit. All I can think about is owning her. Making her mine. Can you really blame me? With that sinful body, luscious mouth, and wicked tongue, she’s every man’s dream, and she knows it.

No one is immune to her charm, not even me, a man who has everything—a beautiful wife, an office with a view, and more money than most people can spend in one lifetime. Only I know how to make her toes curl. Only I know her body better than the other men she screws in her free time. None of them can compare to me.

But the joke is on me. I’m the prisoner.

The one who will never compare to him. The one man who makes me see red. His name is stored in her cell phone. It’s the first one she calls out to, the first one she cries for when all hell breaks loose. Ryder Jacobson.

The name makes me cringe.

She loves him, and I love her. In my own way, I always will. But the bad guy doesn’t always belong with the bad girl. Sometimes the bad girl needs a good man to believe in her, to give her that final push toward ultimate transformation. I wish I was that good man. That I could be her happily ever after. I guess that’s the thing about prisoners, though. They’re left alone with their torment, and in the end, they have no one to blame but themselves.


The Replacement by Rachael Wade

Series: The Replacement #1

Publication date: January 27th 2014

Genres: Contemporary, New Adult


*Contains sexually explicit content and mature subject matter, including language and elements of abuse.*

A gritty New Adult drama about a young woman’s self-destructive quest to find purpose, self-worth, and love in a broken world.

My name is Elise Duchamp. I’m twenty-three years old and I’m known as the town whore.

No, not the kind who exchanges sexual favors for money. The other kind. The kind who gives it all away for free, whenever and however she likes. I am that girl. The one everyone whispers about and the one none of the girls seem to like, because all of their boyfriends either want to sleep with me or already have. Promiscuity is my thing—the kind that slowly, violently turns my insides black, but gives me something I need.

All things considered, I’m not completely reckless. I’m safe, and contrary to popular opinion, I do have a heart. I live in a world of careless choices, and with those choices come careless people. I cannot judge them, because I am one of them. I too bow down to the altar of the self-serving. I am not a good friend. I am not and never could be anyone’s girlfriend. I’m convinced any goodness in me shriveled up and died long ago.

But I am a replacement. That is something I know how to be, and this is a story of the lengths I’d go to in order to keep it that way.

This is the second book in her Rusk University Series, and it is set to be released on October 28, 2014! But you can pre-order it NOW! Check out what it’s about and then fall in love with this gorgeous cover!



In this second book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack’s New Adult, Texas-set Rusk University series, which began with All Lined Up, a young woman discovers that you can’t only fight for what you believe in . . . sometimes you have to fight for what you love

Dylan fights for lost causes. Probably because she used to be one.

Environmental issues, civil rights, corrupt corporations, and politicians—you name it, she’s probably been involved in a protest. When her latest cause lands her in jail overnight, she meets Silas Moore. He’s in for a different kind of fighting. And though he’s arrogant and infuriating, she can’t help being fascinated with him. Yet another lost cause.

Football and trouble are the only things that have ever come naturally to Silas. And it’s trouble that lands him in a cell next to do-gooder Dylan. He’s met girls like her before—fixers, he calls them, desperate to heal the damage and make him into their ideal boyfriend. But he doesn’t think he’s broken, and he definitely doesn’t need a girlfriend trying to change him. Until, that is, his anger issues and rash decisions threaten the only thing he really cares about, his spot on the Rusk University football team. Dylan might just be the perfect girl to help.

Because Silas Moore needs some fixing after all.

Cover Reveal – NEW POINT by Olivia Luck @authorluck

Cover Reveal


Book Title: New Point (The Point Series)
Author: Olivia Luck
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: August 19, 2014
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions


Imagine the worst day of your life. Immerse yourself in the details. How did you feel? Who were you with? What were the consequences?

Recalling my darkest day is as simple as typing a few search terms into a web browser. It only took thirty minutes for me to become the center of a media frenzy that caught the attention of an entire country.

So I hid.

Nine months later and I’m getting better. Moved two hours from home, landed my dream job, and met a delicious new guy.

Healing is that simple, right?



“New Point isn’t known for much breaking and entering, but I have to admit, this looks mighty suspicious,” an unmistakably Midwestern accent drawls from behind me, effectively scaring the sweat off my bare shoulders.

A shriek escapes from my lips as I teeter preciously on the wood chair and my hands lose their grip on the white doorframe. The rubber of my flip flop doesn’t provide much traction and my body pitches sideways. In just a second I’ll crash against the deck floor and I’ll spend the summer recovering physically instead of gaining back my old–

Sturdy muscular arms slide around my waist and yank me against an equally firm chest. “Woah, there. I didn’t mean to scare you.” The masculine voice has a smile behind it.

“Probably shouldn’t go sneaking up on someone then,” I mutter once I catch my breath and untangle myself from his grasp. He chuckles at my retort, a rich baritone that makes me feel like shivering.

When I’m a step or two back I’m nearly breathless again, but this time for completely different reasons.

Sturdy was one way to describe his muscular grasp, but now that I have a full frontal view of him, I see my mistake. He’s perfect. Thick arms with nicely defined muscles that don’t bulge too aggressively beneath his white T-shirt, a broad chest, trim waist with low riding blue exercise shorts. And that’s just his body. Bright white teeth gleam at me from behind a broad smile. Thick, dark curly hair begs to have fingers run through it and he has coffee colored eyes framed by long lashes most girls want desperately.

He’s a combination of sultry sex appeal and mischievous intentions as displayed by the twist of his lips. Less than one minute in his presence and I’m practically swooning.

“Who are you?” I blurt out.

With a smirk, he crosses his arms across the planes of chest. “Shouldn’t I be asking the questions, Ms. Breaking and Entering?”

Promise Me This by Christina Lee

 Available October 7, 2014

Promise Me This_Cover


Book blurb:

A new love will test the boundaries of passion between a privileged boy next door and the tattooed, blue-haired girl who helps him embrace his wild side…

Nate has developed quite a playboy reputation around campus. It’s not that he doesn’t respect or trust women; he doesn’t trust himself. The men in Nate’s family are prone to abusive behavior—a dirty secret that Nate’s been running from his entire life—so Nate doesn’t do relationships. But he can’t help himself around one girl…

Jessie is strong, independent, and works at a tattoo parlor. Nate can’t resist getting close to her, even if it’s strictly a friendship. But it doesn’t take long for Nate to admit that what he wants with Jessie is more than just friendly.

With Jessie, he can be himself and explore what he’s always felt was a terrifying darkness inside him. Even when Nate begins to crave her in a way that both shocks and horrifies him, Jessie still wants to know every part of him. Testing their boundaries together will take a trust that could render them inseparable… or tear them apart.

Susi’s Review and Giveaway – Beyond Me by @JenniferProbst (the Sex on the Beach series)




Spring break in Key West with my besties was supposed to be casual fun. But I never expected to meet James Hunt. Sex and frolic? Yes! A relationship? No. But his hot blue eyes and confident manner drew me in. And when he let me see the man behind the mask, I fell hard, foolishly believing there could be a future for us. Of course I never considered our relationship might be based on lies…or that his betrayal could rock my foundation and make me question everything I believed in…


The moment I saw Quinn I knew I had to have her. She hooked me with her cool eyes and don’t touch me attitude. I had it all, money, social status, and looks. I could get any girl I wanted…until her. When my friends challenged me with a bet to get her into bed by the end of the week, I couldn’t pass it up. But sex wasn’t supposed to turn into love. She wasn’t supposed to change me, push me, and make me want more for myself. She wasn’t supposed to wreck me in all ways. And now, if I can’t turn my lies into truth, I just might lose her forever…

My Review

First of all, I am a huge Jennifer Probst fan. Her books are always a perfect blend of awesome characters, exquisite writing, a hint of the unexpected and sexy love scenes too.  Beyond Me, one of the books in this fun and sassy Sex on the Beach Series does not disappoint.  It was amazing!

First of all, Jennifer, thanks for taking me back to Key West for awhile.  As a Floridian, Key West has so much to offer especially to Spring Breakers,  It was the perfect setting for Quinn and James to meet and enjoy their Spring Break together.  I could totally see these two characters as well as their friends in all of the places described in this book.

The characters, Quinn and James were simply perfect.  I loved Quinn’s sweet and reserved personality.  She is definitely a strong and independent woman with much life experience for her young age. James, whoa….   Gorgeous is not enough to describe this sexy and delicious guy.  I totally loved James from the very start.  He is a rich sexy young man who lives on his own.  He has been partying and blowing money all of his life.  You may consider him a playboy when you first meet him.  But, as you get to know him, his unexpected qualities emerge, making him even better if that is possible. (Yes, I would love to have a James for Spring Break too.)

While Quinn and James see Spring Break as a time to hook up, their instant chemistry sears through the pages of this story.  Quinn turns out to be more for James than he expected.  The sex, well, yes, it is totally hot and tastefully written.  I do admit to blushing along the way and enjoying the intensity of their chemistry together.

Their Spring Break encounter teaches both Quinn and James about themselves.  It was a pleasure to read and enjoy how much these two characters wanted and ultimately needed each other.  I think that one of the main reasons that I loved this book so much is because Quinn brings out the best in James (no spoilers, read it to find out what I mean) In fact, they both are good for each other.

This story is written in both character POV’s which I really love.  This writing style is awesome because the reader gets complete insight as to what each character has on their mind.  As a reader, it makes understanding the characters emotions more fun.  And, being inside the male mind is always so entertaining.

Beyond Me is a must read!  I know that you will love reading it as much as I did.  So grab a Sex on the Beach cocktail,  sit back and enjoy this sexy, sassy you just can’t put down book today.

I gave this book 5 sexy stars! 

Get all three books in the series!

Beyond Me is part of the Sex on the Beach Series written by three talented authors.

Eddie Neff needs space. Not the type that country stars croon about, but physical distance from her emotionally distant father and the tatters of a broken relationship. So when the opportunity to relocate her life and interior design business arises, the answer comes easily.

Adjusting to life with Claire, her gregarious new roommate, is more than simply testing comfort limits. With just one meeting, Eddie finds herself unable to resist the draw of Harris Grant, Claire’s brooding and overprotective older brother.

Harris doesn’t fit her idea of a safe relationship. He pushes Eddie to face her deepest insecurities and fears of abandonment. And Harris holds on to his own painful loss, unable to overcome personal demons.

Eddie and Harris must learn to conquer their internal struggles. But as they navigate their new love, outside forces fight to drive them apart.

In Pursuit Excerpt
A buzzing in my purse makes me realize that my phone has been demanding my attention for the past few minutes. I’m not sure how long. Fifteen missed calls from Harris, two from Claire and a bevy of text messages. He’s calling right now.
“Hello,” I whisper into the phone.
“Where are you? Please, I won’t… Just, please, tell me where you are so I can come pick you up.” He sounds frantic. In the background a horn angrily blasts and he yells, “Shut the f**k up!”
“I didn’t say anything,” I stammer.
“No, the a**hole behind me. Where are you, Edith? I’ll come get you.”
“Oak Street beach.”
“F**k!” he roars, causing me to start. “Do you have any idea how dangerous it is out there? Do you see anyone around you?”
“No. I’m all by myself,” I whisper.
“Stay put. I’ll be there in two minutes.”
The phone clicks and he’s gone. I cover my wet face with my hands and close my eyes to try and block out the whirlwind of emotions swirling around me like a violent tornado. I want to go home. Not just the home a few blocks away, but the safety of my room in Arlington.
I hear the pounding of sand, but I keep my eyes closed. Rough hands yank me into his arms, and he presses his face into the crook of my neck. Put side by side, his hands span the width of my back and curl around my sides. He rocks us back and forth.
“You’re safe, you’re safe,” he whispers over and over. It’s unclear if he is talking to me or to himself. We sit like that for a while, I don’t know how long, until he finally loosens his hold, and presses his forehead into mine gently.
“I’m sorry I ran,” I say softly.
“Of course you did, I attacked you like an animal. I was out of line.” We continue breathing in each others’ air as the breeze whispers around us. He bunches me to him tightly, my safe haven.
“You’re not angry?” I ask timidly.
His eyes are closed when he responds, “Hell yes, I’m angry.”
I inhale deeply, waiting for what’s next.
“Not at you, Edith, only at me.”
A slow exhale lets out the breath I’m holding and I sag down in relief.
“That was unforgivable of me, treating someone so inexperienced that way.”
“Inexperienced?” I study his furrowed brow, his eyes still closed.
“You’re a virgin,” he says the word with awe, like I’m an undiscovered species.
I shrug out of his embrace, jumping up to my feet. “Virgin!” I squawk. “I’m not!”
Okay, having sex with two people doesn’t make me an all knowing sex goddess, but it’s been a few years since I lost that innocence.

Author note: In Pursuit is the first book in a two book series. Intended for 18+ readers.

My Review

I love books where the story and characters seem real.  You know the kind,  like you can see yourself as friends with the characters because they are so well written, you can relate with them.   In Pursuit is one of the those books.  From the moment that I started the book, I immediately connected with the characters.  Eddie (Edith) is a very likable, real young woman.  She is starting her life and career in a new city.  Her new life comes with a roommate, Claire,  your typical spoiled little rich girl. Then there is Harris, Claire’s brother which will take your breath away and finally, my favorite supporting characters, Sean and Luke.

In Pursuit is a witty romantic story.  Eddie, is starting a new life in Chicago where her decorating business takes off. When she meets Harris, sparks fly.  The interest in this delicious male is definitely there.  As she gets to know him better, she learns that the interest is mutual.  Everything is going well for her.  Her professional life is thriving.  She meets new clients and makes friends.  Everything seems perfect. Harris is perfect.  Their chemistry takes over and there is your hot and steamy love story.

Of course, all love stories have their obstacles.  Eddie’s past and her present post hurdles in this story. Claire, the roommate, seems to have a problem with Harris and Eddie among other problems of her own.  (no spoilers)

Cleverly written, In Pursuit will keep you hooked to the Kindle (in my case).  The right amount of suspense and angst make this a great read.

The story ends with a cliffhanger.  I can’t wait to see what happens to one of my favorite new couples, Eddie and Harris.

I gave Olivia’s debut book 5 shinning stars!

Susi Reviews – Cupcakes and Ink by Helena Hunting

Happy Release Day!

Cupcakes and Ink by Helena Hunting

cupcakes and ink

Tenley Page is looking for a new start: a new city, a new apartment, a new life. Her plan is to keep to herself and stay focused. But leaving her past behind and starting over isn’t as easy as she thought. And neither is maintaining her solitude. As Tenley settles into her new surroundings, she finds herself drawn to Inked Armor, the tattoo studio across the street. But it’s the gorgeous, dark-haired tattoo artist who captures her interest. There’s something about his severe beauty that captivates her—and not just in her waking hours.
Covered in the ink he inscribes on other people’s skin, Hayden Stryker has made a career out of being a tattooist. He’s got his own business and a tight circle of friends. As far as he’s concerned, that’s all he needs. At least until his aunt, who owns the antiques and used book store across from his tattoo studio, hires a new employee. At first his intrigue is based on physical appeal; hot chick equals something nice to look at. But as he begins to catch glimpses of the fiery personality under the fragile, feminine exterior, his fascination with Tenley grows. Annoyed by his inability to control his fixation, Hayden decides the best way to cure him of the new obsession is to get to know the girl under her skittish façade.

But like the ink he wears as armor, Tenley has the ability to get under his skin and stay there.

My Review

As a baker, I love all things related to baking and desserts.  When I first saw this cover and title, I knew this was a book for me. What I did not know was that I would become so consumed by this story of Tenley and Hayden.  Cupcakes and Ink is a prequel. It introduces the reader to the characters in Clipped Wings.  This prequel may be short but I felt that it was essential to really understanding the characters.  Written in both Tenley and Hayden’s point of view, the reader is able to get into the mind of both of the characters and truly understand their feelings and insecurities.  You also meet the secondary characters which each play a significant role in Clipped Wings.

I immediately fell for Hayden and I am pretty sure, just like Tenley,  you will be dreaming about him too. He is quite a complex character. He is gorgeous and covered in tattoos.   I also loved Tenley, a young girl starting her life over in a new city, who bakes, like me.  🙂

I have to say, Helena, did an amazing job of keeping me hooked to her story. Her writing is exquisite and memorable.  I read Cupcakes and Ink and immediately read Clipped Wings.  Yes, I am now a huge Helena Hunting fan.  I have been raving about her books for the past couple of weeks.

I’d love to say more about this prequel, but do not want to give too much away.  I highly recommend this read as well as Clipped Wings which you can pre-order and get next month.

I gave this book 5 brilliant stars.

Now, go get this book.  It is available on Amazon today!
