Blog Tour Wolf in Gucci Loafers by Tara Lain

Wolf in Gucci Loafers 
(Tales of the Harker Pack #2)
by Tara Lain

Socialite Lindsey Vanessen wants someone to love who will love him back — an impossibility for a gay, half-human, half-werewolf. Too aggressive for humans, too gay for wolves, and needing to protect the pack from human discovery, Lindsey tries to content himself with life as a successful businessman. But when someone starts kidnapping members of wealthy families, Lindsey meets tough cop Seth Zakowsy—the hunky embodiment of everything Lindsey wants but can't have.

Seth has never been attracted to flamboyant men. What would the guys in the department think of Lindsey? But intrigue turns to lust when he discovers Lindsey’s biting, snarling passion more than matches his dominant side. It might mean a chance at love for a cop in black leather and a wolf in Gucci loafers.

“Much as I love the opportunity, I don’t want to waste time driving.” He cocked a grin at Lindsey in the dark car.
“Don’t worry. You won’t. Drive.”
“Okay.” He hit the accelerator. Holy shit. Instant speed. No rumble, no roar, no lag or leaping ahead. Just zero to infinity with a touch. “Wow. This is freaky!”
“Fun, isn't it?”
“Give me directions.”
“Okay. Pull down your fly.
“What?” He glanced over, but Lindsey’s face was not smiling—intense, actually.
“You want directions? You got them. Pull out your cock!”
He swallowed but reached down and pulled the zipper on his very crowded trousers. This sounded promising.
“Get it out!”
“Okay, okay.” He reached in, grabbed his leaking rod, and pulled it from its prison. Man, just rubbing on his briefs was almost too much. That was one sensitive cock. The thing stuck up out of his fly like a puppet.
“Pull the balls out too. I like balls.”
Seth chuckled. “Your wish is my command.” He flopped his balls out of the fly. They were already so tight they barely bobbled.
“Very, very pretty. Definitely Connecticut’s finest. Can I lick them?”
“Shit, feel free.”
“Drive carefully. Keep your eyes on the road.” Lindsey laughed.
Only a small space and a brake lever separated the two seats. Lindsey leaned over, insinuated his head into Seth’s lap and breathed. Oh man, hot breath warmed the tip of his dick.
“He seems glad to see me.”
Seth could barely breathe, much less talk.
Lindsey swallowed the thing whole. Sheeee-it! Heat flashed through Seth’s balls and up his spine like he’d been shot. The car swerved. Damn. He gripped the wheel and slowed down.
Lindsey’s lips popped off. “This is your driver training course. All gay cops must drive while receiving head.” He shoved Seth’s dick back in his mouth and sucked.
Oh God. His hips bobbed. Fuck. Fuck. His knuckles on the wheel were white, but he didn’t want to give up and stop. The speed and sucking went together like peanut butter and jelly. The quiet in the car was punctuated by low growling sounds coming from the suckfest in his lap. What was up with the guy? But man, the sounds were right on the money. He felt like a fucking animal.
His balls tightened further and tingling tickled at the base of his spine. “Lindsey, I’m going to come. I gotta stop. I’ll wreck the car.”

Cover Reveal Atonement by Julie Morgan

Who's ready for some hotness in the name of Samuel? You've seen Fallen and Redemption... Now it's time for ATONEMENT!!!!


He's caused havoc. He's brought Hell to earth. He's taken more souls than he cares to remember. When Samuel comes face to face with a woman he has centuries of history with, she makes him work harder than he's ever worked on claiming a soul.
Anauel, the Angel of Prosperity, has been charged to end Samuel once and for all. She hates who he's become, she cannot stand his existence and she plans to do whatever it takes to bring him down. What she doesn't count on his seduction making its way into her heart.
When Anauel places herself in Samuel's path, she knows what her duty is; she will destroy Samuel for everything he has become. But a big what if lingers over her mind: Can she send him down a different path of atonement or will Samuel lure her to the other side in hope of claiming the soul of an angel?
Fighting lust and temptation, Anauel will need to fight harder than she's ever fought before; for her soul to live. In hopes of claiming the soul of an angel, Samuel will find himself also fighting against something he's completely unfamiliar with; the ability to feel something greater than lust and seduction... love.

Is he not sexy? Is he not HOT?! Samuel is the sexy demon you met in Fallen, and the demon who tried to kill Alex and convince Lisa to give everything up in Redemption... and almost succeeded. 

Now watch Samuel as he steps into his own story. He'll face decisions that could alter his own course and he could be his own undoing!

Add it to your Good Reads TBR list now! He's here and he's ready for you to read his story!!!

ARC Review Irresistible Ink by Renae Rose

Unbelievable… After months of admiring Arianna during their tattoo sessions, James is half in love and completely in lust. When he finally asks her out, things move at lightning speed, until he gets her home… Where someone has abandoned a baby on his doorstep. Arianna should be running in the opposite direction, so why is she the one who comes to his rescue when he has nowhere else to turn?

Unlovable… Arianna’s past holds a secret sure to crush James’ attraction to her, which is too bad because he’s exactly the kind of guy she’d choose for herself, if things had been different. She knows she should abandon their failed attempt at a fling, but she can’t turn her back on him and his newborn niece – they need all the help they can get. Being a part of his life while fighting her feelings for him is hard, and resisting his feelings for her is even harder.

Inked in the Steel City Book 6

My Review

First I want to state that this is a great series... each book is a pretty fast read, and Ranae Rose has a way of intertwining  heartache and happiness that leaves the reader satified and happy with each book they read.  Now on to the review.

James has not had the easiest of lives and some how he is still caring and thoughtful (not to mention sexy). When he finally gets to go on a date with the woman he has been tattooing and admiring for a while things don't quiet work out as he plans. 

Baby on the front steps in never a good way to end a date or start a relationship, some how it works and James finds himself needing Arianna's help with his niece. 

When the frustration and anger that James has at his sister sends Arianna the wrong message. Will Arianna be able to trust that James is a good guy and will accept her secret. When resisting a want and need is no longer viable these two will heat up the pages. 

I really enjoyed Jame's and Arianna's story, including their back stories which when I read this book never felt like they were just thrown in there to add a  little extra.

Overall I think this is a nice ending to this series. 

I rate this book 4 out of 5 Genie Lamps 
You can buy this book from Amazon Barnes & Noble

Ipsy Glam Bag

Hey All,
So I normally don't post things that I subscribe to, but I am excited as I actually decided to trying out Ipsy Glam Bag for the first time. You can blame Carrie Ann Ryan as She gets these box subscriptions in the mail and Is always posting and saying how happy she is with them... I looked over tons of box subscriptions and decided what the hell it is only $10 a month plus tax and offers some pretty awesome makeup items. If I don't like something I have a 16 year old baby sitter who would love them.

 This is the first month with them and I have to say I love everything that that i got. I plan to keep getting it so every month will now have a Ipsy Glam Bag post every month.

April's Glam Bag is "Beauty Rocks" and I agree. It came in a hot pink bubble envelope.. Pretty cool as Pink is my favorite color. Then I got a cute little makeup bag which had the following 5 items in it.

Bigsexyhair Root pump (sample size)
Eliabeth Mott Pop! goes the shadow (fullsize) in Champagne
Cailyn Tinted Lip Balm (full size) in Apple Pink
Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet glide on eye pencil (full size) in Black Velvet
Dr Brandt microdermabrasion skin exfoliant (sample size)

Here is a picture of the goodies I got... Have to say it was well worth the $10 for the UD alone.

If you wish to check them out here is the Facebook Page and Ipsy Website

Much Love

Review Tangled Innocence by Carrie Ann Ryan


Humans aren’t as alone as they choose to believe. Every human possesses a trait of supernatural that lays dormant within their genetic make-up. Centuries of diluting and breeding have allowed humans to think they are alone and untouched by magic. But what happens when something changes?

As one of the seven lightning struck women, Nadie Morgan has known for a while now that her fate would be forever changed…and revolve around a certain dragon. From the first time Dante Bell saw Nadie, he knew she was the one for him. There's just one problem--there's another in his life he's waiting on as well.

When Jace Goodwin, a bear shifter and Mediator, finally comes back to the human realm after years away under circumstances out of his control, his first stop is to Dante's Circle where he not only finds his dragon, but the woman they both have been waiting for. 

Once secrets are told and the sparks fly, Nadie's new life becomes something she never thought possible. However there's another realm at play and Jace and Nadie's dragon will have to fight harder than he's ever fought before to keep the life he's waited eons for.

Warning: Contains one not-so-innocent human, a bear known for his bear-hugs, a tattooed and pierced dragon with a fiery temper, and a connection so explosive, you'll be fanning yourself from page one.

My Review

I have to say that I love this series by Carrie Ann, and enjoy trying to figure out what type supernatural the lightning struck women are going to turn out to be. I won't spoil what Nadie is supposed to be but I didn't really see that coming. This is the fourth book in the series and I was so glad that Dante got his story. I love Dante and the push and pull he had with Nadie, however I don't like that Nadie was ready to give up. The reasons Dante had for staying away were justified however I feel he was misguided  in his thinking. I liked that Carrie Ann made Me mad at Dante and feel for Jace and Nadie.

This book will have you wanting to slap a couple of the characters upside the head, frustrate you, make you jealous that you don't have your own Dragon and Bear Sandwich. Yes I went there. It was a fast read, with tons of action. I can't help but think that I wanted it to be longer in length.

Overall it was a great read... I can't wait to read Faith's story which will be the next book in this series.

I rate it 4 out of 5 Genie Lamps

I bought advanced copy at TNEE in Atlanta

Review The Case of the Invisible Witch by Patrice Lyle

Thirteen-year-old Tulip Bonnaire, Witch PI, runs Spells & Spies out of her dorm room at Poison Ivy Charm School, a school for polite witches and warlocks. She only has 72 hours to figure out her latest case, or her classmate Missy will never be seen again. The mean triplets who call themselves the Belles have cast an invisibility spell on Missy. If Tulip can't crack the case, Missy will remain invisible forever.

My Review

I read this book to my boys... they always wanted to know what was going to happen next. It kept them entertained and they didn't even mind that Tulip was a girl. They loved the ghost parrot Chester... I also enjoyed this book as it was a fun read. Tulip tends to skirt the line between following the rules and breaking them to solve a case. She is spunky, has some issues with her magic, and is a true friend. She deals with things that most children boys or girls go through and I love that about her. At the end of the book there is excerpt of the second book in the series, which I plan on buying for my boys. Overall great children's book fit for kids ages 9-13. 

I rate this book 4 out of 5 Genie Lamps

Book Blast Lizzy by Krystal Shannan


Keeping secrets is dangerous…and painful.

The last man who found out Lizzy MacLaughlin’s secret left without so much as a goodbye. Now, utterly in love, Lizzy holds her breath that her six-month relationship with retired army ranger, Ethan Hart, won’t end the same way.

Life is never perfect…or easy.

Ethan is head-over-heels in love with Lizzy, and warring schedules make time together precious. Determined to be together without interruptions, they plan a weekend getaway at his lake house –unaware the past Ethan is trying to ignore is coming hell-bent on destroying what Ethan holds most dear.

Will Lizzy’s secret tear them apart, or will something far worse threaten their very lives?

Excerpt :

“Mom has given the stink eye to every guy that’s ever taken me out. She has to make up for Dad not being here.”

A surge of jealousy wormed its way into his mind. “How many guys have you been out with?”

“Simmer down, soldier.” She giggled and winked. “My love life is boring and consists of one guy in high school and two guys in college. I wasn’t a nun, but it wasn’t like I got around either. You have nothing to be all caveman about.”

“Sorry, I was having a moment.” He really was. The thought of any other man touching her, kissing her, putting hands anywhere on her body made his blood boil.

“No worries, but would you mind terribly going and getting me a plate of bread and cheese. I swear the buffet smells like something died and then came back to life, but I’m starving and desperate.”

His concerns returned full-force with her joking comment about smelly food. Something was going on with her. It’d been nearly a week since he’d seen her eat any meant and that was very out of character.

“Sit here, baby. I’ll be right back.” He helped her into a chair at an empty table and then went to the buffet table.

The spread of food ranged from deliciously smelling barbeque, mashed potatoes, corn, rolls, cole slaw, and trays of crackers, cheese, and fruit. Nothing smelled out of the ordinary to him, but he grabbed an assortment of crackers and cheese, along with a few pieces of fruit, just in case she might want some.

He walked back to her and set the plate in front of her along with another glass of water he’d snagged from a passing server.

“Thank you.” She smiled and popped a cracker in her mouth.

“Anything for you, baby. I’m sorry you aren’t feeling well.”

“I’ll be fine. I promise. I’m already feeling better,” she answered and bit into a slice of cheese. “This is really good.”

“Little sis, you okay?” Karen said you weren’t feeling well.” Caiden’s voice over his shoulder startled him. He was the only one of Lizzy’s brothers who could sneak up on him.

“I’m fine, Caiden. Don’t you dare go telling Trevor or Harvey. I got a little overheated outside. I’m fine. Ethan is taking good care of me.”

Her big brother snorted and Ethan bit back a grin. The MacLaughlin brothers all liked him, but after walking into the dressing room this morning with Lizzy’s sparkly lip-gloss smeared on his mouth, they were rescinding their approval temporarily.

“I’ll come back in a little while and check on you again.”

Ethan turned in his chair and met Caiden’s hard glare. “I won’t leave her.”

“I know.” Caiden sighed and nodded. He stepped toward his sister and gave her a kiss on the cheek.

She smiled and patted her brother’s arm. “You worry too much. Go back to Lina and enjoy the party.”

TNEE 2014 Atlanta

Hey all, So I spent this past weekend in Atlanta at The Novel Experience Event. Jane Smolen and I went together again. It was only 6 hours from my house so not to bad of a drive. I have to say holy Authors Batman, there were so many wonderful authors everything from YA, Paranormal, Contemporary, Science fiction, Alternate history, Erotic, Military, BDSM, Historical, Contemporary, and even sweet romance. There was something for everyone... I was so excited to meet J.M Madden whose street team I am on, she was so awesome.

One of the first author/reader events that took place was when you where able to go to the Aquarium with Authors. I went with J.M Madden, Sharon Hamilton and Ikelia Francis(Awesome Blogger). I truly enjoyed that experience. They had touch pools where you could touch the sea life. Here is a picture of J. M Madden experiencing the touch pool.

 We even found Ocean Porn, and when we left the Atlanta was lit up and it was awesome. 

I went to VIP party enjoyed talking with other readers, bloggers and the authors that where there... I also got a tattoo during the VIP party. The Tattoo Artists that where there did top notch work and where awesome. Here is a picture of my tattoo.. I absolutely love it.

On Saturday they had the book signing and the themed parties...The book signing was massive... I tried to spend time with each author and I made a point to visit every single one... I won't lie it took hours. But I enjoyed it even though my feet didn't lol... I wore boots bad mistake. Nothing is more rewarding then meeting authors you love and new authors you didn't even know existed. I ended up with some pretty awesome books, not counting the ebooks I ended up buying.

There where three parties the Book Boyfriend, The Cowboy, and BDSM party. I went to each of them and they all different which was a good thing in my mind as it made it easy for those who don't like something to have other choices. I spent most of my time between the BDSM and Cowboy party as they where right next to each other. It was a long day but I have to say I had a great time, indulged in too many books, too many sweets, and just enough drinks.

Next year The Novel Experience is going to be in Las Vegas and I have never been there so I am looking to going. For a first year event I have to say it was pretty damn good, only suggestion I would make would be to have name tags as I am bad with names sometimes. 

Overall Great Event I suggest everyone should go to at least one reader event and this would be a great event for someone who is going for the first time. 

I have tons of swag and will be giving away 3 TNEE tote bags full of goodies this month so make sure you enter either though one of the 2 hops, or my monthly contest which starts today. Here is a picture of all the swag
