ENSHRINE BY CHELLE BLISS ...REVIEW BY DAWN




NEW STAND-ALONE NOVEL

by USA Today Bestselling Author, Chelle Bliss Released on January 26th - LIVE


EVERYTHING CHANGED IN AN INSTANT. I thought I knew what was important, but one phone call sent my life into a tailspin. Alone and afraid, I cling to the one man I shouldn’t. I was warned about him and told to stay away. “He’s dangerous,” they said. But the man who could hurt me the most, gave me the greatest comfort. "He's not who they think," I told myself. But just like an illusion, things are never what they seem.

REVIEW
Please remember, Authors do not want to write the same story over and over... This is something New and SO VERY EXCITING!

Oh this book, this story gets you right in the feels. It hits you where it hurts you the most, your heart. Who am I kidding, this was a kick in the gut as well. If you read this and do not have a reaction to the heartbreaking issue Callie is facing, well there is no hope for you...YOU ARE A ROBOT!
The story has so many layers to it, Callie's struggle, Bruno's secrets, Callie and Bruno's past and possible future, Oh and let's throw in Becca, the friend we all need, but sometimes we just need a break form her. It makes for a deep story that is rich in characters. Bruno's family, I just love and adore the supporting casts this author comes up with. They are Hysterical and a much needed light for Callie.

I was crying, laughing hysterically, crying again and then just happy... just at peace with the direction this beautiful story was taken. I am not sure how Chelle was able to go to the place she went to and to express just how Caliie was feeling. I mean, one whole chapter was just word for word, paragraph after paragraph, Perfection. I have witnessed the event she is speaking of and she nailed it.. Brilliant. I'm getting all emotional right now thinking about it. This book with touch everyone who reads it, I honestly believe that. One can not read this story and not relate in some shape or fashion.

We get our typical hot Chelle Alfa Man, but Bruno has something special and it makes you just love him that much more! He has secrets and very few people know about them and he does not share with Callie, causing a lot of pain and confusion. But to me his most endearing quality was, his compassion! He pushed when Callie needed a push or shove sometimes and he walked away when she needed space. Never too far away, he was always there in some way. He was everything she needed in a time when she didn't want to need anyone.
As you read this story you may get frustrated with Callie I did. But I read it with a couple things in the back of my mind, "what would I do?" " how would I act?" It really makes you take a look at yourself and question things you think you know the answer to, but in reality, one never knows until you are put into this situation.

As a standalone book this story has mighty feet and legs holding it up. I went into this without knowing the first thing about it, I avoided all blurbs, goodreads posts, Chelle's newsletter... all of it. I wanted fresh eyes when I went into this, and shock and awe are the only things I can come up with. You are thrown for a loop when secrets are revealed, but you are elated at the same time.
There is no heavy love triangles, tragedy or baby mamma drama in this story, but it is by far Chelle's most dramatic story to date. I believe this will touch many lives and possibly help someone dealing with or supporting someone going through the same struggles as Callie and Bruno.

Enshrine Excerpt:
She fiddles with her cosmopolitan. “I think you should get your eyes checked next time you’re at the doctor, Cal. He’s always watching you. It’s sexy, but it also creeps me the fuck out. He’s so dangerous.” I laugh, playing it off, but I’ve noticed it too. “Is he looking over here now?” I ask, refusing to turn around to look for myself. She leans forward, her eyes peering behind me. “He is. He’s not taking his eyes off us either.” “He probably thinks we’re trouble or something,” I say and hope she drops the topic because I’d rather find out what she was going on about before. “You can pretend like you don’t think he’s hot, Cal, but I’ve seen you flirt with him more than once.” I shake my head and chuckle softly. “Smiling and saying hello isn’t necessarily flirting.” “He has a thing for you.” “He probably has a thing for every girl in this place.” “Nope.” She shakes her head vigorously and puckers her lips. “He wants you.”

About Captured:
Title: Captured
Author: Jennifer Chance
Publisher: Elewyn Publishing
Release Date: January 19, 2016
Series: Gowns & Crowns #2
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Length: 207 Pages
ISBN: 9781943768066

For beautiful, pampered Lauren Grant, the idea of love without strings is a fairy tale and a trap. Though she’s skillfully maintained her image as the carefree celebutante, for years she’s been systematically stalked by the richest—and most ruthless—golden boy of the Jet Set. To stay one step ahead, she’s used every resource at her disposal. But now, stuck in Garronia with the whole world watching, she’s finally cornered by her nemesis, with no way out.

Well, no way out but one: the stubborn, forceful, impossibly gorgeous captain of the Garronia National Security Force, Dimitri Korba. The first man she’s ever trusted… which makes him the most dangerous man of all.

Dimitri Korba’s greatest duty is to keep those in his care safe. Since losing his closest friend, he's vowed that he will not fail another. Not even the haughty, foolhardy American blonde whom he can’t get out of his mind. And once Dimitri glimpses the terror Lauren hides behind her icily perfect fa├žade, protecting her becomes his only goal.
Dimitri has no idea how far his commitment will take him, however, nor how powerful his need for Lauren will flare when she’s not only in his care, but in his arms. With each stolen moment, the danger around them intensifies, burning away every doubt…until all that remains is their fierce, unexpected passion. But will that be enough to save them?

Excerpt: Attitude
Dimitri’s lips twitched as Lauren trotted up the steps, and he wasn’t able to wipe his expression fully clean before she saw him. “You’re looking satisfied.”
He leaned forward with his elbows on the railing and gestured to the sun. “It’s almost sunset. There is much to be satisfied about.”
“Hmm.” She swiveled to take in the sun as well, her face half-hidden by giant sunglasses. “You do this every day? Just, you know, stand here and watch the sun go down?”
“No. We only do it on the days when we wish to be good to ourselves. The rest of the time, we make do with a lesser life.” He held out his hands. “Let me take your things and put them inside. I will get us both a beer so we can celebrate the sunset appropriately.”
She willingly handed him her shopping bag, then hesitated with her purse, keeping it close to her body. “I’m good with this. But thank you.” He had no choice but to take her bag and retreat. Dropping it inside the door, he fetched the beers quickly enough as his mind clicked through the possibilities. He needed to see the phone, before they were to meet others. And that would be after sunset, so he didn’t have a lot of time.
How could he get Lauren worked up enough that she demanded a shower before she saw anyone else?
The solution was, of course, obvious. He’d always been known for his excellent ideas in the field. It was good to know that his instincts did not fail him while he was on leave.
He pulled the tops off the beers and headed back outside.
Lauren was sitting on one of the sling chairs, angled toward the sun. A thin crawl of clouds had surfaced on the horizon, running purple against the water. It looked more beautiful than any photograph he’d ever seen, and he’d watched tourists try to capture the magnificence a thousand times over. Some things, you had to experience in person.
He handed her a beer. “Good, yes?”
“It’s pretty, I guess.” Her smile softened her sarcastic words, and when he held his beer out to her, she clinked hers against it. “What are we toasting to?”
“To a perfect sunset. It’s enough.” Instead of taking a seat beside her in the matching swing chair, though, Dimitri folded his body to the porch, his head level with Lauren’s knees as he lounged back on one elbow. He was close enough to her body to feel her heat, sense her sudden tension. But it wasn’t the tension of a frightened woman, he thought. Simply one who was uniquely, subtly aware of him.
He took a long pull on his beer. He could work with that.

Wicked Lust The Wicked Horse Sersies, Cain's story by Sawyer Bennett .... Review by Dawn





I would have said I was not an avid Sawyer Bennett reader.But  it seems I have read more of her books then I had realized.

This is a steaming HOT read!  I mean WOW! and I loved every delicious second of it. 
I mean it , you just jump right in. Hello Sex Club! 
Cain, was described perfectly and I was easily able to get a mental picture of his scar and his presence and I LIKE the visual. He was this massive towering force that was determined to  "love 'em and leave 'em" but when she spots Sloane, there is just something about her that throws him off his game.
 

Sloane comes to town with a secret and is not leaving without getting what she wants. She knows how to play the game and get Cain to notice her, and she does. But is Cain more than she bargained for?

The story is super sexy and off the charts EROTIC! 
I will be back for the next installment of the Wicked Horse Series...

Hard to Forget by Bella Jewel.....review by Dawn






I have loved reading the Alpha Heart series so much. But this, this one is my absolute favorite. Like, wake up at 4:30am, grab my kindle and read it because I was thinking about it while trying to go back to sleep good. 

Delaney, Jaxon and Kyle made this such an exciting story. The drama was intense but not so heavy that you were grasping for a ray of light. Delaney was so much fun to read. We need more leading ladies like this, ones that can kick ass and take names. She didn’t need a man to make her whole, she had her job. I loved the reasoning behind her wanting to become a bodyguard. I loved her sass! She might seem meek and mild but had a mouth on her.

Jaxon was the character that showed the most growth, nope, wait… I take that back BOTH Jax and Delaney grew to trust and love. Jax was your classic man whore, bossy Alfa. I Freaking adore him. He was brooding and moody and well that really brought out Delaney’s sassiness. They had this friendship that, although brief and maybe more of mutual respect was really lovely. But when all that changes, WOW the chemistry is amazing! ~HOT HOT HOT~

I really thought Delaney and Kyle were going to end up together and the little twist that is thrown in there made me stop and say “well , what????????”  I love those little surprises. I did really dislike him, A Lot but he had a purpose and really was vital to the story. 

This collection of books I would highly recommend to fellow readers!!! Bravo 5 clocks

VIP TRILOGY COVER REVEAL BY AUTHOR M. ROBINSON


NEW COVER REVEALS, SALE & GIVEAWAY

THE VIP TRILOGY
Best Selling Author M. ROBINSON
COVER DESIGN BY TheFinal Wrap

The VIP Trilogy by Best Selling Author M. Robinson got cover lifts! They are also on SALE for $.99 Each Limited Time & FREE with Kindle Unlimited!


Ysabelle

They say in order to find yourself you have to go home, but what if home is what you’re escaping from. I went to Miami to discover myself; never in my wildest dreams, did I think home would become a three-letter word.
VIP.
I was the dream.
I was the illusion.
I was the fantasy.
Until him…
Everything went to hell in hand basket the moment we laid eyes on each other.
I wanted him.
He wanted me.

Sebastian

I have always been a man who made decisions based on other people’s feelings, wants, and desires.
I was selfless.
I never wanted to hurt anyone.
Especially her.
The moment I met her… I wanted her.
I loved her.
For the woman she was.
For the woman she wanted to be.
But most of all…
For the woman she was, when she was with me.


This isn’t a love story, but a story about love.

Warning sex/drugs/language. Mature readers only.


$.99 CENTS/FREE WITH KU





Some people need love…

I need sex, money, control, and power.

Anyone could have those four things, but only one could have VIP. Becoming Madam was never a choice for me, it was a mandated order from the most powerful woman I knew- my mother. I was born to fill her shoes, never to make mistakes, or to show weakness.

You are the product of your environment. They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree; you learn from what you see, not from what you're told. Nature vs. Nurture. I learned from it all; what I saw, what I didn't see, what I was told, and from reading between the lines.

I was raised with the belief that the world spun ONLY because of me. I held power as far back as I can remember, saw things no one ever talks about, and witnessed illegal acts of sex, drugs, and money by the time I was eighteen.

You saw a glimpse of me in VIP, now see it from the beginning. Enter my world where anything goes; no judgments, no remorse, no guilt. You play by my rules, or you don’t play at all. There are no limits to what I can do, or to what I can show you…I will ensure my legacy by any means necessary.

My name is Lilith Veronica Stone, and I am The Madam.

Warning: Book contains adult situations.

Dark content/sex/drugs/language. Mature readers only.



$.99 CENTS/FREE WITH KU







Ysabelle

I love you.
Three words that can make or break you.
I thought I needed to find myself. I thought I wasn’t happy. I thought I needed more out of life.
I didn’t.
I’m more lost now than I was when I left. I have no answers, just endless amounts of questions. It was only a matter of time until the truth came to light. I never imagined it would change my entire life and everything I thought to be true.
It was all a game.
Except I wasn’t a player.
I was a pawn.

Sebastian

The end.
Two words that have several meanings. I never thought I’d lose her. But did I ever really have her…
Or did VIP?

Can love conquer all?

Warning: Book contains adult situations.

Sex/language. Mature readers only.



$.99 CENTS/FREE WITH KU





THE VIP TRILOGY BUNDLE (LIMITED TIME)
